    They should have waited until I won this week's PowerBall. I would have bid $225M. ?

    Elvis Pinto was (I think) Activities Director on my Vision cruise this past spring.  He was a blast!  Very entertaining, and I saw him everywhere on the ship.  I'm not surprised he's now a Cruise Director!

    bcarney got a reaction from Mrs. RoyalMoyal in Questions about San Juan as a departure port   
    Stop worrying about pinching pennies, and spend the money to stay in Old San Juan. A $100 difference isn't going to make or break you, but will add SOOOO much more to your vacation memories.  Remember, it's one of the oldest cities in the western hemisphere, full of history and charm. I can't recommend staying there highly enough!

    Steak Diane.
    I'm not sure what someone named Diane did to the cruise line but naming this entree after her seems unfair to both Diane and the concept of a steak.

    Don't do that, book at Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa Ybor City and explore that part of the city, then take their shuttle (or a Lyft) the mile or so to the port.  Ybor City is walkable and you'll have a great evening preceding your cruise.

    The cruise terminal is in the "downtown" area of Tampa about 15-20 minutes from the airport.
    I would suggest heading over to downtown when you arrive and then having the short trip to the cruise terminal the next day.
    I dont have a specific hotel to recommend since i live locally and havent had to use any of them but there are several in the area from all of the major hotel brands if you have a preference.

    In the county I live in we have a population of 292,406 people. Our Health Department has posted that there have been less than 5 people hospitalized for COVID-19 during last three weeks. Yet we are still stuck under what amounts to house arrest by our Dictator Governor.  

    None of this makes any sense anymore.

    @JLMoran I think one of the keys here is to look at news that doesn’t consistently use words like “could” of “may”. So many articles are just being printed for clicks and just make claims.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone.  Looks like I'll be on an NCL cruise in the future, but I doubt I can get all my family members in the same place again.

    The biggest ramification for me would be having to explain to the server in the WJ that yes, I really am asking you to put sausage gravy on my corned beef hash.  It's my "cruise thing" and I'm not giving it up. ?

    My deal breaker is that I'm not sailing until there is a vaccine. Getting sick because some yahoo declines to note that they have a fever when boarding the ship since they don't want to lose their vacation.... yeah, not worth it to me.
