  1. Do you have to reserve dining in the MDR's as well on the Prima or just the Specialty Dining restaurants?  On embarkation day, is there one MDR open like there used to be on other ships and does that have to be reserved if it is open on the first day?  

  2. In the smoking area on Deck 18, is there anywhere to sit or just a little huddle area?  How closely is the Cigar Bar monitored to be sure you are only smoking Cigars (i.e., party of 2 one has a cigar, the other a cigarette, is that a problem?). Is the Casino monitored to be sure you are playing and smoking?  Can you be watching a player and smoking? Sorry, just trying to cover all probable situations.

    here again, i hate to shatter childhood dreams, but there likely is no "toilet paper truck." that truck is packed with paper towels, disinfecting wipes, tissues, straws and a host of other food and hospitality supplies, including toilet paper... or the stuff that passes for toilet paper on NCL. frankly, no great loss if the toilet paper truck never arrives... the toilet paper is not exactly top of the line.



       I would think that bad toilet paper is better than no toilet paper at all. Let that truck in the loading dock!!

    1) By “they” are you referring to a shared tour? Then yes, the cruise line and the independent shared tours do typically include MT, the scenic overlook on Skyline Dr, and Drake’s Seat before dropping you in town or spending an hour or two at a beach like Magens Bay. If you don’t mind being in a group shared tours are an inexpensive way to see those highlights. Obviously a private tour is even better.


    2) If you are looking for shopping then yes, CA is your target for sure. Again, many shared tours will drop you in CA after. Otherwise yes, you would taxi in if interested in seeing some of the history and shopping.

    If docked at Havensight you can just shop there, but you will not get the feel of old Charlotte Amalie. And of course Paradise Point tram is right across from Havensight…

    If you want to share your ship and date that would show where you will dock…


    We're docking at Havensight.  Most of us are more interested in views and history as opposed to shopping.  "They" would be a shared tour, but I can certainly look into other options. I do know we can walk right to the skyride from the dock, just not sure that's the best option for views or history.  

  5. If you purchase OBC upfront and the cruise is cancelled by NCL or if you cancel or change it to another sailing, do you get that OBC refunded, or does it get transferred over to the new cruise you book?  I know you get your shore excursions refunded by not sure about OBC paid upfront.  I don't want too much money tied up with NCL.

    Yes, for that itinerary you would have to be tested again on the ship.

    I apologize if this has already been answered.  If you have to get tested on the ship, who is testing you?  Are you doing the proctored test on the ship or is NCL testing you? Is there a fee? What if you test positive and you're already enroute? 

  7. Thank you all for the information. I adjusted my pick-up time based on the advice given.  I was looking up the port area and there is nothing within walking distance to do, so there is no point in hanging around. A lot of the restaurants nearby don't open until 11am so we wouldn't even be able to Uber there and enjoy hanging out as it would be time to leave to go to the airport. Off to the airport we go and relax before our flight.

  8. Our ship docks at 7am on a Saturday, and we'll be 1 of 5 coming in port that morning. Our flight isn't until 3pm in the afternoon from MCO.  How long do they let you hang around the ship in the morning?  What is a good time to request our driver to pick us up?  We would like to walk off with our own luggage. Is there anywhere that is open to hang around at the docks or will we have to hang out at the airport?

    We used them in October for the Allure. Corey was great to deal with as we changed our hotel a few times so had to have our booking updated.    We booked a one way shared shuttle and ended up being the only people on the shuttle.  It turns out Corey was actually our driver and was super friendly


    How far in advance did you book with them?  We'll only need them from the port to MCO.

    The other half will be found under the other passenger, even if the other is a minor and without an account and you paid for all of it.



    After I got done typing this, I checked my emails and there was the FCC for the other account.

    Thank you for the information.  Now I can pay off the other cruise I had already booked and hope and pray that we can go on that one and there are no new surprises ahead.
