5. & 6. The ships normally dock early in the am, sometimes before the passengers are even up. The idea is to have the ship ready for passengers to leave the ship early to maximize the time they...

I don't think it will ever happen. And it would only catch someone who had a temp on Embarkation day. The thing with Ebola exposure is, you are not sick until you are. There is no definitive rule...

Hypotheticals, yes. But it is food for thought. You can get Ebola from a blood or stool sample just as easily as you can from stool or vomit in the patient's room. She did handle the samples. And...

I'd say if someone did not like NCL, and there was another option for touring the islands that was comparable to this itinerary, then go for it! But the fact is, NO other cruise line has a...
