  1. We never heard a thing. Our youngest was 3.5 when we were on the Breakaway.
  2. They are more the same than different. Things I like are the "free" perks. I know you pay for them in some way, but still cheaper than the drink package for me. They have wonderful fresh made to order crepes in the buffet in the evenings. We love O'Sheehans to eat at. We are not big on main dining room meals (or speciality places either) and O'Sheehans fills the niche of sometimes wanting more than what the buffet has to offer. Great fajitas, fish and chips, open face hot sandwiches, and the wings are yummy, just not the "buffalo" ones.
  3. On the cruises I've been on, I've seen many unused loungers all the time. It's just they are in places that aren't front and center by the pool where apparently that is the high demand spot. There are usually other decks where there are tons of unused lounge chairs though.
  4. We sailed on the Gem this past end of August. I booked in February, about 1.5 years out and never saw the price drop lower than we booked. It stayed at that price for a while after I booked, but after that the prices only rose.
  5. It's been tried and done so much that this is why all adults 21+ in a cabin have to purchase Cheers if one does.
  6. I'm two weeks about of a cruise I booked 18 months in advance. Prices for my cabin type have yet to drop lower than what we paid.
  7. If you have time, I would transition the baby to eat cold or room temperature bottles. I never heated bottles for my kids as babies and it was so handy when out and about or traveling. At home I mixed formula by the pitcher and left it in the fridge for the day and when out, I'd bring the bottles with water in them, and the powdered formula separately and mix as needed. It also made it a bit easier when transitioning them to milk from formula because they were used to the cold drink.
  8. Thank you! I printed them to show my oh so cool 15 year old to gauge his reaction. So far he's done good about going to some stuff in the clubs and if nothing else, he meets some kids to hang with in the evenings.
  9. I'd be interested in seeing the Entourage schedule. Also if anyone has the schedule for the Seals (ages 6-9), I'd be interested in that too. Thanks!
  10. I booked out August 2019 last February. A quad obsturcted OV was $3185 with pick 2 perk, one being guests 3/4 sail free. The 3/4 sail free option has been gone for that sailing for a while now and the price for a porthole is $4847. I don't think it will ever drop enough for us to upgrade!
  11. Thanks. It was only our second cruise and our first with NCL so we didn't realize we could ask that it be put away during the day.
  12. We are going to be on the Gem in August and the crappy layout for a quad balcony is why we stuck with an OV. For a quad, not only does the pull out couch block the balcony door a bit, but then the upper bed drops from the ceiling right in front of the balcony too. I'm not sure if it was our steward last time we sailed NCL, or what, but he did not put away the upper bunk during the day so if that happened to us on the Gem, our room would be a mess and we wouldn't be able to even enjoy the balcony.
  13. We stayed in 6279 on the Pride a few years ago. It was great. It was our first cruise and kind of spoiled us as far as cabins go. LOL .
