  1. I’ve read many posts stating that you can get anything you want in the Haven restaurant as long as they have the ingredients on the ship. Some people report getting custom made dishes and even made to order (next day) desserts like cheesecake for instance. On our last Haven cruise on the Getaway my wife requested a lunch entree for dinner (the baby clam linguine). She was tersely told by our server that it was only available at lunch, period. I don’t think it would have taken a lot of effort to put that dish together but the request was denied. Should have spoken to the manager but we’re polite Canadians. It really makes you wonder what you’re paying for.
  2. Great. If you used two CruiseNext vouchers you should also receive another $100 OBC, unless it is not combinable with some of your other perks.
  3. That’s the point. No amount of data will help you “figure it out” because there’s no magic formula. Thinking otherwise is pretty naive
  4. NCL has implemented (or tried to implement) some pretty irrational things over the last few years, but this one takes the cake.
  5. If it’s replacing La Cucina, I don’t think you’ll see an upcharge. The upcharge restaurant will continue to be Ocean Blue.
  6. The Haven introduction briefing is a total waste of time. The only reason we go is to confirm the free lunch at Margaritaville (where applicable). These boards are infinitely more informative. The only things that’s worse is the Haven disembarkation briefing that is basically an opportunity for the concierge to remind guests that many Haven staff are not covered by the DSC.
  7. Didn’t realize you need long pants in the Manhattan Room (I didn’t on a Breakaway cruise a couple years ago). I thought the Manhattan Room on the Epic was the only mega ship MDR that required long pants.
  8. Every sailing is different. Some posters report getting tickets in boarding group 10 or higher. We were on the Bliss last winter in a priority boarding position and were shutout. As one poster mentioned, it’s worth a shot if you go with realistic expectations. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
  9. You might have been more successful if you would have requested a can of Diet Pepsi.
  10. That’s good information. I have three future cruises booked with the included air so it’s nice to know you’re covered to some degree.
  11. Are you really protected? I was under the impression that if you don’t have insurance you’re out of luck if you’re flight doesn’t get there on time.
  12. You’re right! I haven’t been able to find it on the Canadian site. It just says the double up promotion has been extended to June 30 with no mention of the OBC. Thanks for correcting me.
  13. Yes, you can use two CruiseNext certificates, but the added $100 OBC is no longer available as far as I can see.
