  1. For my upcoming 7/21 Escape to Bermuda I bid the same dollar amount on 4 Haven categories that hold 4. H6, H4, H3, H2. I was upgraded to the H6 which NCL considers the least valuable but was the room I considered most valuable and the one I really wanted....
  2. Submitted 6/12 received confirmation 6/27.
  3. On a side note just noticed the old cabin I was upgraded from is available on the site to book...
  4. Just got upgraded today for the 7/21/19 Escape to Bermuda. Originally booked balcony BF and got upgraded to Haven Aft H6. Bid was $1500/person. This was the room we wanted so may have been a little aggressive, still saved thousands over regular "retail" haven pricing...
  5. Curious if you got your upgrade and are willing to share your bid? Hope you did...
  6. I just booked a cruise today and applied two cruise next deposits and called NCL to inquire about the extra $100 obc and they said that promotion expired 5/31/19.
  7. Looking to buy 2 cruise next certs for $125 each for a total of $250.
  8. Does anyone know if you book a guarantee (not sailaway) cabin for a cruise that leaves in about 60 days and you are not assigned a cabin does that prohibit you from bidding in the upgrade advantage program? Or does your cabin have to be assigned and then you are able to bid? Thanks!
  9. Let's just say my black pants are as formal as I get on a cruise and only on formal nights!
  10. I was Gold on NCL and matched to Silver on MSC - this was over a year ago when they were more generous with the status matching. My guess is the Platinum on NCL will only match to Silver on MSC now.... The match disappears after 3 years if you do not continue to sail with MSC. Also as a side note I do not dress any differently on MSC as I do on NCL - my motto is comfy...
  11. Having sailed the MSC Seaside twice (8/18 & 4/19) I would say it would be a nice change of pace to try a different line. My philosophy is "variety is the spice of life" and that changing up cruise lines makes each cruise more unique and enjoyable. I do agree 100% that MSC non-ship customer service is pretty bad and their website is also awful...but this does not translate to their on-ship employees. I believe they are a good value with all you receive with the Aurea package and was pleasantly surprised at their easy package offerings on the ship. They did have menus specifying easy package drinks. I really enjoyed the entertainment on the Seaside as well, their shows are just the right length and very different from what you see on other lines. The flair on the Seaside is more European which I enjoy as I love to travel to Europe. I would not hesitate to travel on MSC, Royal, Carnival or NCL as they all have their pros and cons and they all do things differently which I appreciate!
