  1. This is my first time considering traditional dining and I’m not sure how it works. If I request a table side of, say, six... does that mean my husband and I will get seated with two other random couples? This sounds fun to me but was curious if that’s how it worked and what people think of it if so. Thank you!
  2. I feel some people are far too worried about what others are doing. Are we getting on cruise ships now just to clutch our pearls and cluck our tongues at what others dare to do on their vacation? Butt out, in my humble opinion. 😅
  3. These replies are amazing! Thank you so much for taking the time to address my concern. I’m so happy to find there are lots of positive people on this board and that perhaps my first impression was far off from reality.
  4. Thank you! I will say, we always have a great time on a cruise ship and are the type of people to overlook most negative things because, hey, we’re on a beautiful vacation regardless. We loved the NCL Getaway and I saw a lot of negative reviews about it. To each his own, I’m just glad to know it’s not a reflection of the cruise line in general. 🙂
  5. Sky Princess December 28th 2020!
  6. I meant Sky Princess. 🥴 I’m glad to hear that I don’t need to rebook. We’re really excited to try out Princess. I was under the impression (before coming here) that it’s top-notch.
  7. We just booked out first Princess Cruise (Sun Princess) after having previously sailed only Carnival and NCL. I was excited to get on Cruise Critic and join in on the fun/discussion on a new board, only to find it’s mainly negativity, rudeness and complaining. Am I missing something? Does Princess suck or are people generally more persnickety? Maybe I’m just reading the wrong threads? I’m kind of afraid to post this but I really want to know if I made a mistake giving Princess a try. Is it as mediocre as these posts make it sound?
  8. We're sailing on the Vista October 19th, 2019 and made Chef's Table reservations. My son's birthday is October 20th and we're wanting to take him to the steakhouse for that but would be willing to switch it to another day. However, I don't know what date our Chef's Table will be so I don't know when to make my steakhouse reservations for. Is there any way to know this at all or are you just kind of SOL until you get onboard? Thank you!
  9. I love all this info. Such a welcoming response and a lot to go on. Thank you guys!
  10. That IS really good to know! We did dress up on NCL any night we ate in a dining room or specialty restaurant but I would have likely been ill-prepared on Celebrity for that overall attire expectation. Thank you!
  11. That is really good to hear, I'm excited to try it! I didn't mind the layout on NCL too much and have also sailed in balconies with enjoyment...However, I think once you get used to a suite it's hard to go back! My husband and I have five young children and we're taking them on their first cruise this coming October. Since my finances aren't at the level where I can pay for seven people to sail in a suite we're going for a lower level room. I'm really hoping for the best! Ha. It will be so good to get back to a suite on the sailing after that when my kiddos are safe at home with Grandma. 😃
  12. Thank you so much for your input! I think we may just give X a try, like someone else said, to see for myself what the differences are. I guess I'm always just searching for someone to say ABSOLUTELY DO THIS LINE or this room, etc. So much easier that way. Ha! I've been on the Getaway and it's amazing, but, NCL's biggest ship is the Bliss. Not that it matters much, they're very similarly sized!
  13. I've been booking my cruises for the upcoming year and just finished booking for our next NCL cruise but am heavily considering booking for Edge or Apex in the near future. Has anybody sailed on both lines that can give me a fair assessment on the similarities and differences? I'd be also looking to compare The Haven vs Suite Class on Celebrity. I keep looking at reviews for Celebrity and of course a ton of videos but was really wanting some individual opinions. I love NCL but am wondering if people feel strongly one way or the other as Celebrity looks pretty amazing. Thanks everyone!
