  1. Our kids found this on the Dawn. My wife took this video:
  2. If you are coming in from a hotel in Rome it is a couple hour trip as I remember it. Definately too long for a taxi unless you have a suitcase full of cash to pay or have some type of prearranged transport. We took the NCL transport from the airport Hilton.
  3. Just signed up with them yesterday! Thanks for the recommendation!
  4. Jim Zim has a great tour of the Pearl on You Tube so I'm thinking the Jewel should be pretty similar. I'm a bit surprised we were able to snag the cabin for a somewhat reasonable price. Maybe because it is so new and just became available.
  5. Lisa- We will be taking this cruise in June with a 8 & 10 yold. Considering a private tour in St. Petersburg-do you recommend a specific company or stops? Thank you
  6. I've seen them in the Gem and the Pearl. Just curious on how much different they are on the newly renovated Jewel ... If different, of course.
  7. We just booked a cruise on Norwegian Jewel, Suite 15500. It is apparently a relatively new cabin since NCL doesn't even have a floor plan posted for it. Has anyone been in it yet who can give us any insights?
  8. We just booked one of the two suites. Has anyone seen the actual floor plans or stayed in one of them?
  9. We had no bag fees and were booked in economy which included seat choice and free bags for all four of us.
  10. We are family of four flying and got tickets yesterday. All together. All in the premium seats. Really pleased with how it went so would do it again.
  11. I keep thinking about matching status on other cruise lines, but have yet to try to do it since we usually have cruise next certs and other lines have not been able to match the CAS rates we get with NCL.
  12. Upgrading to a balcony usually does not add a tremendous amount of money to your trip. Depends on timing, etc. I'd call and ask the CAS representative which dates are most economical for the upgrade. Even if you were out and out buying the cruise you would have to pay the port taxes, etc., so you really are saving. We have done dozens of cruises, all through the casino people except one to Hawaii (where there is no casino) and always save a pretty decent amount of money - minimum 20% since we now buy cruises outright in addition to the free offers, which we do continue to accept, but always choose to upgrade.
