I've been reading about major changes in just about every lines cancellation policy. We just got an email from NCL offering a full refund in the form of a credit for any sailing between 3/10/2020 thru 9/302020, to be applied toward any cruise thru 12/31/2022. NCL calls it the "PEACE OF MIND POLICY.".We have one coming up in a little more than a month, fully paid for, and another in Nov, with the usual deposit, Of course, there were all kinds of assurances in the email, about the precautions they're taking, and how the CEO is taking a cruise himself with his family, etc etc..I know theres a few in here with bookings on NCL. I would appreciate some input. Frankly, we're tempted to take it. Whats one cruise amongst many?

We make jokes about "the addiction"...We have been lucky in that we've never had to cancel a cruise outright. we've rebooked, and rescheduled, life happens...but THIS is...different. your thoughts??

We were supposed to sail out of NY Manhattan terminal next Monday and we decided over the weekend to cancel. Not sure now if the port will even remain open that long as CNN is reporting that the head of the NY/NJ Port Authority just tested positive for corona.

I just got off the Bliss, you'd be surprised at how seriously they're taking this virus. You should have nothing to worry about, but if you're concerned, talk with your doctor before you go and tell them where you're going. They'll be able to give you answers on any extra precautions to take, plus, if you do go, it will be on record where you went so that they can pinpoint where you got the virus.

Now that's an interesting turn of events. Not the cruise line that has a problem but the port! We like the safe approach, but then we are "old".
