  1. Norwegian is the first choice after Featured rewards on my desktop and mobile. Right now their are ten cruise options from 600k-1m points leaving from Canaveral, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Tampa.
  2. I was bumped up to a suite last November and balcony in January. It is the best available room when you call the MSC casino department to redeem your MyVegas certificate. You only pay the standard port fees of $185 per person on the current offer and the standard $12.50 per day room cleaning fee, whatever they call the forced gratuities. You may be able to further upgrade your room or add a third or fourth passenger depending on availability. You do not earn MSC frequent cruiser days when using free rooms. I'm trying to get in on the current deal. but can't find a roommate! I don't like the 12 hour drive to Miami myself. And Norwegian has had free cruises on MyVegas for months. Let me know if you have any specific questions.
  3. That sounds very uncomfortable. I would have reported him to guest services and demand he not enter my room again for the safety of my personal belongings.
  4. My notes tell me you can take the $1.25pp bus a mile to Chippingham Road for your first three stops.
  5. I was there last week on MSC and a shuttle driver told me the Sands Brewery was taking visitors, but not producing so I did not go. The national park was only "open" enough to collect excursion money instead of canceling. I stayed in the port area and bought local things.

    I only went to the Freeport port area on MSC last week because most places are listed as closed. Talking to shuttle drivers, places were only theoretically open enough to collect excursion fees. Attendees of the national park tour reported a literal one minute view of the caves for their money. Shuttle drives wanted $35 for a city tour.
  7. Maybe it was the 10 months between booking and cancellation? On a related note, the cancelled excursions where credited back to my Carnival credit card in cash even though I paid them off with points.
  8. Here is a list of activities on Ocean Cay according to the MSC web site. The first 75% were not available on my cruise last week. NO Beach soccer Disc golf Bocce ball and Tr-Ball-Rec Aqua gym and Aqua Zumba King of the Island and Queen of the Island Ocean Cay Olympic Games Caribbean and Latin dance classes Luna Libre Party Sunset cruise, evening beach picnic YES Beach volleyball Tug of War contest Junkanoo Parade Evening lighthouse Show Beachside fire pits and stargazing
  9. I cancelled a cruise and Amex did not take the credit back out of my account.
  10. I drive 660 miles the day before and 190 miles the day of.
  11. I have silicone straws at home, but feel guilty every time I use our planets limited fresh water supply to wash them.
  12. We walked to the fort, queens staircase, chocolate, cigar, distillery, and back. Also looking at churches and things along the way.
  13. Use the pool shower in your final dance. You will win every contest of this type.
  14. I am recently off an MSC ship that changed to Roatan time two days after Miami daylight saving time ended. So I went to lunch and the breakfast buffet was still out!
