  1. What a bunch of negative Nancy's on here. What's a cruise deposit run? A few hundred dollars? This is why I buy insurance and don't pay off cruises until I have to. I've got 3 on the books. One for August, one for September, and one for December. August is the only crap shoot in my book. The rest I expect to proceed as usual. And if I'm wrong I'm out a few hundred bucks and have a bunch of airfare credit. It isn't the end of the world.
  2. I've used the new version of the NCL App on the Dawn and the Bliss. It worked much better than iConcierge for texting. I didn't find myself closing it and launching it non-stop. I always have an internet package and I still get the $9.99 onboard messaging just to keep in touch with those that don't. Though I am questioning that wisdom since more people I know are getting something we can stay in touch with on board.
  3. They can also adjust prices for you if they change sometimes. Or if they can't do that I've been issued on board credit at least.
  4. Working in IT I feel for the Internet Managers. It's nothing but a mess of people who typically don't know how to use their devices. They are super patient. I've never had any luck getting my promo minutes bundled with my platinum minutes. I have a 9 day coming up and will be going for the premium unlimited because why not. Yeah, it stinks because I can see it online right now for $265.50, so that would work out to $160.50 based on online pricing. But on ship it won't have a 15% discount so will run roughly $305 for the package with setup minus the $125 credit the package is worth on board so $20 more.... Typical NCL surcharge.
  5. Dislikes: No SpiceH20, no Spinnaker lounge, no Great Outdoors to eat breakfast at in the aft. Interesting layout. Likes: Crew and staff are great, enjoyed the casino, still has decent size balcony's compared to the new ships.
  6. Oh and keep the pics coming! It looks good.
  7. Tivoli Gardens is beautiful all the time. So they replaced some things. But did they change the club DJ? I have sailed on Getaway 2 times, totaling 23 days. Every night the DJ played only 1/3rd to 1/2 of a song and mostly reggaeton or bachata. The place became a ghost town after the themed events ended.
  8. Thanks. It's not showing on my confirmation. I'll have to call and make sure they apply it.
  9. As someone who loves balcony's yes. $150 for excursions across your 3 ports and the WiFi is worth $110. (I think) But for me $400 for more space and a balcony is enough. You can't beat the view when it's a nice day and there isn't much better than sitting on your balcony enjoying morning coffee or tea.
  10. Question, I did the same but I don't see the $100 OBC listed anywhere. Does it list out somewhere for you?
  11. Atrium and the buffet/pool bars are usually open bright and early.
  12. I'm another cruise boarding with the group on the 7th so I'm looking forward to your review. Thanks in advance.
