  1. Maybe when they moved to New Orleans from New York for the season last fall they should have traded in the NYC style cart for a Lucky Dog cart to drum up business.
  2. Same here. The poor guy manning the cart was just standing there with no takers in the half hour or so I sat a few feet away at the bar listening to the reggae band.
  3. I just tip on ships the way I tip at bars anywhere else, by laying the dollar on the bar in front of the drink. I hand the tip to table servers. I don't tip extra to get better service though I do appreciate it. I tip because the extra dollar here and there means a lot more to the bartender/servers than it means to me. They are all working hard to support families back home.
  4. Thats weird. Last December while sitting at Maltings on the Breakaway I would notice that if the place was busy that I and a few others would leave a buck or two per round. One bartender would ring a bell when he got a tip. Before the Drink package thing we would not leave cash but add to the tip on the bill we signed.
  5. My wife and I do the same thing and are remembered by the bartenders and get great service.
  6. It includes an appetizer, a main course and a dessert. On the Breakaway in December the place was only open as a free limited breakfast option in the morning and until late afternoon serving food off menu. Walked by it every day at least twice and never saw more than 4 or 5 people, usually none at all there except for breakfast. A complete waste of space.
  7. No problem for me I will just drink bottled beer.
  8. That makes sense as our cruise is in 2021 on the Breakaway. It looks great and I like that it is in the center of town. Thanks for the info. Just sad that we had to cancel our Panama Canal cruise due to my wife's job.
  9. We have just booked a cruise with a stop in Puerto Plata Dominican Republic and have only found Amber Cove owned by Carnival as a port there. Where will we dock? This seems strange to me.
  10. We have signed up for the NCL airfare promotion paying $124 pp with a departure the day before. We can cancel this offer at any time before the final payment. Just wondering how others feel about this promotion after using it. Was it a good experience? A bad one? Just hoping for some input. BTW the flight would cost us around $400 pp.
  11. Is it ever possible to change the second leg through the airline if the layover is too short?
  12. Wow. that's the sort of thing I was hoping not to hear. 55 minutes is tight especially if there is a flight delay on the first flight.
  13. OK I took the airfare offer for a $99 flight from Kansas City to Miami and will pay the $25 pp to leave a day early. Has anyone taken this offer and been given a layover less than an hour and a half or so? I never book a flight with less than an hour as I don't want to blow my connection. I would rather have 3 hours than one hour. I will be 70 years old at the time of the cruise and don't like to rush. Thanks for any input.
  14. In our last three cruises we have only had fore and aft suites or a large balcony. On our next cruise it will be large balcony on the Encore. I like to have room for a lounger and as far as I know only suites and large balconies have this.
  15. Fresh lobster is readily available in any major city in the USA. I have had it a few times here in Kansas City. Once at a high end Chinese restaurant and a couple of times at Red Lobster. I don't need inferior frozen lobster on a cruise ship.
