  1. It has to do with the rotation parameter in the EXIF data of the original image before you uploaded it to the CC server, is my guess. Use an EXIF view/removal tool to check and remove the EXIF data, then upload it again to CC and see what happens. https://www.verexif.com/en/ Why is my image rotated when I upload it... https://www.howtogeek.com/254830/why-your-photos-dont-always-appear-correctly-rotated/
  2. Let's put the morality debate on the passengers instead of the crew. Just take pictures of the pictures with your phone. Problem solved.
  3. Title says it all.. the packages shown below, which are available to pre-order online... are they available for purchase on board? I have some OBC to burn... Thanks.
  4. Bring your own. No Stevia, I can tell you that.
  5. Hideous. Looks like something off the set of Star Trek from the 60s.
  6. More than 2 percent. Which based on Wikipedia's capacity for pax/crew, 2% equals about 112 people.
  7. You know, it's not one or the other, right? One can count their blessings while still observing and discussing trends in pricing and services provided.
  8. You should actually read the page where you ripped off that graph. https://www.cruzely.com/cruise-prices-have-fallen-for-years-heres-how-much/ The chart you cited shows "Revenue per guest" and it even says right above it that "...this isn't the price of cruise fare". Then right below the chart it says, "...at some point however, the rising number of passengers will likely lead to rising prices, if it hasn’t started already." Ignoring that Cruzly blog-type site, it may be more interesting to read NCLH 2018 Annual Report, which shows record revenues for 2018 of $6.1 Billion USD. Or Carnival Corporation's 2018 Annual Report, which shows revenues at $18.8 Billion USD up from $15 Billion in 2014. Carnival goes on to report that "Cruise passenger ticket revenues made up 74% of our 2018 total revenues. Cruise passenger ticket revenues increased by $986 million, or 7.6%, to $13.9 billion in 2018 from $12.9 billion in 2017." It should be noted that Carnival Cooperation also reported Net Income of $3.0 Billion in 2018 up from $1.5 Billion in 2014. I stand by my assessment that generally speaking, cruise prices, fees, and services charges have increased while services provided have been eliminated or reduced (I'm not going to cite those). If the financial reports don't do it for you, this forum is full of anecdotal evidence of both price increases and dropped services.
  9. You read the terms and conditions associated with whatever it was that brought about the on board credit.
  10. Cool story! I disagree with your assessment. Generally speaking, fares, fees and service charges have been steadily on the rise while services have been removed or significantly reduced. With NCL, the examples are too numerous to mention and are well known and understood by anyone regularly cruising the line. There are always deals to be had, sure, but mostly it has been prices UP, services DOWN across the industry.
  11. I just got the same offer for the same ship and itinerary. $79 pp.
  12. Looks like OP is on a Bliss 21 day Panama Canal itinerary, westbound.
  13. Well - for departure from San Francisco, port side viewing would be best if you plan on being in your cabin during sail away. The departure is very fast... maybe only 30 minutes from Pier 27 until you're out of the Golden Gate. Then the ship turns north, and there isn't much to see from either side of the ship until Alaska. As the ship sails around southeast Alaska, there isn't much difference between one side of the ship or the other. The exception would be Glacier Bay. Although there is little difference, I would prefer the port side for Glacier Bay. However, most people will tell you the best experience is to be out and about around the ship for different views. Bottom line, it makes little difference... but I always choose port side (or aft-facing).
  14. If they're available on the site, print them now, or print them tomorrow. Print them next week. Print them whenever. Yes, you are over-thinking this.
