  1. To the OP, I’m sorry you are going through this. It must be very upsetting. The financial loss compounds the sense of disappointment at missing out on the cruise. Too bad some on here feel it’s appropriate to post comments that are unhelpful. I hope there will be a resolution for you and your family. These certainly are tough times for people planning cruises! Let’s hope the virus is contained very soon, and that fear does not lead to panic and spur additional discrimination. None of that will help anyone!
  2. The OP stated that having four in the cabin was the only way to afford the cruise. Enough said. It’s good that some here are being encouraging and offering helpful suggestions regarding making the bedding situation more comfortable. OP, I think it will likely work out. Try to think about all the fun you’ll have on the cruise!🌞
  3. Thanks so much for this informative review. You helped a lot with our planning for our cruise on the Bliss in March. Appreciate the tips!
  4. So glad you’re doing this! We’re on the Bliss 3/8. Not good news about the Observation Lounge though🙁 Look like it’s warm. Enjoy!
  5. Thanks for this thoughtful review. It's good to hear a positive perspective. Having reasonable expectations does seem to be a key part of the ability to enjoy things. I'm glad you had a good experience!
  6. Some sensible comments here, along with the usual insulting one(s). I feel for you. Anyone could make a mistake. It might be best to cancel and rebook, although I get that doing so might complicate things. Too bad that these boards so quickly degenerate into the posting of attacks like the first response. Unnecessary. In fact, the OP acknowledged the mistake up front.
  7. Your review is so interesting and helpful. Thanks! We love Disney and go every year, and have just started cruising these past few years. (Have only sailed out of NYC). I love the idea of combining the two, so sailing from Port Canaveral is a great idea!
  8. I don’t understand why this is of such interest and a subject for criticism. It’s a financing program. Sensible? Maybe not, but no one is forced to become involved in it. Offering information based on one’s experience is one thing, making baseless judgments is another. We have no way of knowing the financial status of anyone (other than ourselves) who takes cruises. Seems best to focus on our own business and leave others to theirs.
  9. Hi, There are a number of hotels listed on Hotels.com in Manhattan on the west side for your date. They run between $150-200, a bit more than what you’re getting in NJ, but perhaps more convenient. I happen to like Yotel, but the room is quite small, (Pretty much like a cruise ship cabin!!) There are others that might be better for two people. Staying in NYC would save you all the back and forth, (except of course, the trip from/to Newark airport). I’m on the Bliss on 3/1. Enjoy!
  10. Thank you. I was about to call again, but checked my edocs this morning. Valleyvillage, your suggestion about emailing turned out well. They now have our middle names on the documents. :😎
  11. I emailed my request to this address and have received no response. Calling involves being on hold for long periods of time.
  12. I will call. This should be part of the registration process and included on the NCL website during check in. Simple. Then there would be no need for this extra step. So it’s annoying.
  13. I'm concerned about this issue. It seems as if there should be room for middle names to be entered on the website, if that is so important, but that is not the case. Any updates from anyone having problems at boarding? I emailed the address mentioned above (valley village). No response. Will call. It's annoying.
  14. We like the Sea Downs and sister hotel Bougainvillea in Hollywood Beach. (Not sure about availability in March though. This year we’re doing a Home Away place).
  15. For your sake, do not do this! As all have said, you are not likely to make it at all. If possible, fly in the day before!
