  1. https://www.ncl.com/latitudes-rewards-program Ways To Earn Rewards Points Earn 1 point for every cruise night. Earn 1 additional point per night for booking in a Concierge, Suite* or The Haven.
  2. If a TA is discounting a room, they are simply taking some of their commission and discounting the rate. I don't think it is a good practice, but some TAs do this. If the cabin price goes down before final payment, and you ask for the lower price, the TA's commission goes down. Therefore whatever discount or OBC they provided will likely be reduced. I personally would go with the OBC.
  3. The program you are referencing is CRUISENEXT ULTIMATE. This option allows you to book a specific sailing and room. It allows a free upgrade within the same category. For instance, if you bought a BC balcony cabin, you .could get a free upgrade to a BB stateroom. It is not applicable to suites or studio cabins.
  4. What parts of the Haven are you interested in? If not the sun deck is it mostly the Haven restaurant and the suite perks like priority boarding? Have you done the spa pass? I have sailed in many different categories on NCL. While the Haven is certainly wonderful, I felt that getting a balcony cabin and a spa pass was enough of an escape from the pool deck for us. If you are not much of a pool person have you considered looking at a suite on a smaller ship or a non-haven suite on a Jewel class ship?
  5. Today I won one of my bids: NCL Bliss June 16th sailing from BF balcony to B9 Spa Balcony $175 PP. I paid $1699 PP for the BF (guarantee) and originally was assigned a B8 cabin. I already bought two spa passes so we are actually saving $75 PP since the Bliss Spa bass costs $250 PP.
  6. The full details are listed here: https://www.ncl.com/termsandconditions/promotions Just note NCL will add a $18.80 per guest in gratuities onto your cruise fare. The link above also lists specific venues that may have an upcharge in addition to using on of your free speciality dining credits.
  7. Both Aft and Forward suites have a couch that converts into a bed. Technically it can fit two people, but I wouldn't put more than one adult on it. With two children you would be better with an H4.
  8. When we did the behind the scenes tour it was certainly not free. Are you mixing that up with the Platinum benefit of getting a free behinds the scenes tour? A few times when we ordered speciality coffee from the Haven restaurant it was free but that might have just been an oversight... I wouldn't count on anything with a charge being free. Only item I can recall is on the first day on the larger ships Margaritaville is free for Haven guests for Lunch and half price for dinner at Food Republic.
  9. As noted above, if you are flexible on your travel dates and are not set on a specific room or category it would be worth waiting it out. Have you ever read the CC post below:
  10. Sun and Sky regular open bar terms and conditions: https://www.ncl.com/terms/sun-beverages https://www.ncl.com/terms/sky-beverages For the cost of the upgraded package I would go with the premium package it is not that much more
  11. The usual drink package includes drinks up to $15. If you ordered say a $20 drink, you would have to pay $5 plus 20% gratuities. If you are not particular on the brand of alcohol, you can find most things under the $15 limit. If you prefer premium brands or fresh juices or specialty coffee in the MDR, then get the premium package as a perk.
  12. Please review this page for details of the premium plus package. This is a new option starting for Sun/Sky sailings starting early 2019. https://www.ncl.com/terms/premium-plus-beverage-package Note the following: "Guest is responsible for 20% gratuities on the retail value of the Premium Plus Beverage Package ($5.80 USD per person per day) prior to cruise"
  13. Please review this page for details of the package https://www.ncl.com/terms/premium-plus-beverage-package Note the following: "Guest is responsible for 20% gratuities on the retail value of the Premium Plus Beverage Package ($5.80 USD per person per day) prior to cruise"
  14. This is a new package for Sun and Sky sailings starting early 2019. No one will have had it yet. It depends if you order a lot of premium spirits, fresh squeezed juices, specialty coffee at dinner etc. You will be responsible for the gratuities as noted on that page "Guest is responsible for 20% gratuities on the retail value of the Premium Plus Beverage Package ($5.80 USD per person per day" Only you can decide if this is worth it. If you are ordering two or more premium spirits a day, this package might be worth it.
  15. Monctonguy, When are you cruising? Starting fairly soon on the Sky and Sun there will be a premium beverage package as a perk.... https://www.ncl.com/termsandconditions/promotions Look on NCL's site to see which specific sailings offer it and it would never be with the sailaway rate... I think it will start in a few months ago...
