  1. Wow, you really hit the jackpot there. The ones I have been looking at either have the $100 free note OR the 20% off note. Too bad I already have my winter 2020 trip booked.
  2. Thanks. Sorry, I saw Breakaway out of Port Canaveral on the other post, but forgot when I posted the request for the ship. Can you tell me what to look for on my reservation to see if I happen to have both promos and don't know it? Thanks.
  3. Can you please tell me what cruise? When I'm looking, the double points and OBC are showing for 2019 cruises and the 20% discount is showing for 2020 and later cruises. We're considering booking a new cruise and double-dipping would be awesome.

  5. Yes, they separate the luggage by color and offload the luggage in the same order that they have the times on the color tags, but, what I think Jetswdo is saying, is that by the time the self-walk offs are done, most of the luggage is already in the terminal, so you can really leave any time you want. I have seen them tell people it isn't their color yet, so I think the safest would be to pick any color BEFORE the time you want to get off, not just any color. I have never seen a disembarkation go as quickly or as smoothly as the POA. One thing I prefer over Princess is that you can hear the announcements everywhere so that you can avoid walking stairs, etc when your color is called.
  6. Personal #3 - I've been to the Swizzle Inn both on a cruise trip (very crowded) and on a non-cruise day (much calmer) and enjoyed the food and fun atmosphere both times. While working in Hamilton, I had dinner at Portofino and absolutely loved it. Great service, great food, but pricey. For fast food in Hamilton, Mr Chicken meets the requirements of quick but yummy. No ambiance, but I went there on our first cruise and went back when working there. #3 Escape - like someone else said, no charge for main dining missed reservations, but our reservations on the Pride of America and other ships we were previously on at specialty restaurants said we would be charged the full price as a no show. I would double check the fine print.
  7. Good to know. Mine was in the 20% section, not the monthly Latitude special section. Good to know I can get both if I book one of the other cruises.
  8. Sorry, no extra point and $100 OBC. Mutually exclusive offers offered to the same audience.
  9. No and no $100 OBC. It is either an insiders offer or the 20% latitudes offer. I saw fine print somewhere stating they can't be combined and my new confirmation stated no extra points. 😥 But I saved $800 so I can go on a cheap cruise and get those points that way. 🙂
  10. The web site has been hit or miss all day today in all different areas. It probably can't handle the traffic generated by this promo. It will be errors one minute and I come back 10 minutes later and that area is working, but a different one errors out.
  11. I used to do only port intensive cruises because I love seeing and doing things and was very worried about our 15 day Panama Canal cruise that had 6 sea days, but I loved them and the cruise as a whole. Our Canada/New England was 12 ports in 14 days and Hawaii no sea days were both amazing, so I'm comfortable now with both types of itineraries. 😉
  12. Thank you for posting. I just emailed my TA. If she is able to get through and re-book before the sale ends, I will be saving close to $800!
  13. Self disembark you don't need tags. POA had the fastest disembark of any ship I have been on. No clearing customs of the ship itself before they can start offloading luggage and passengers. No customs, so no line after you get off the ship. Pretty small ship. We didn't need to pick up tags so I can't help there, but I heard the earliest times went first. We went with the last color called and were off and waiting for our ride before 9:30. You shouldn't need to stress at all for being of by 9.
  14. Thank you for the suggestion. I am that sensitive. We avoid even walking near the casino on most ships. I know they are looking for large enough venues, but it seems a really odd spot. Since NCL was not helpful at all when my TA called, it looks like our options are to change cabins (this same question on FB found that most likely decks 9-11 midship are the ones with the Casino as the boat drill location) or ask the safety officer once on board to have our location changed.
  15. Are the angled balconies the same size on all of the decks or do they vary?
