  1. We have used Viator in Italy and in Taiwan. Multiple times on each vacation. Always been a great experience and the quality of the tours were top notch. It also looks like Marriott has teamed up with Viator on their activities.marriott.com site. Prices of the tours are the same on either site but when you book on the Marriott activities site, you earn Marriott points that go to free night stays.
  2. We were able to use points to get to Tahiti and only needed to pay for the way back. UA from PPT to SFO $200 one way for Jan 2021.
  3. I wonder if you could call NCL and explain, especially since you booked prior to the category change and see if they will upgrade the 3rd cabin? Or allow them to have the same amenities as the other two? You want the family to be able to do things together and the way it was booked, you all were the same. You don’t want to leave one cabin out.
  4. We sail Nov 14th, was a CA 14778, now shows HI. From what my agent said and the web, looks like they only made the CA (now HI) and CB (now HJ) cabins Havens so added a total of 30 additional Haven cabins. CC, CF are now penthouse SC and family SP suites. The mini suites MA are now broken into 2 - M4 Fam Club balcony suite and MA Club balcony suite.
  5. I can’t find anything specific for Joy, but these are pictures of the Bliss, 11700 (listed as sister ship)and the same category. Might be similar?
  6. Sorry, there is a members and non member site, the public site has 70% the same info. https://cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/cruiseline.php?line=Norwegian
  7. I had not been following anything cruise related the last 6 weeks but just signed onto my account. We sail Nov 14th, and had a CA suite, my reservation is now saying Haven, HI category for our cabin now!!!!
  8. There are pictures from May 2019 showing a CA cabin with no pillar. From what I can tell, I think the CC and CB’s have the pillar and the CA’s do not, but don’t know for sure. Is there a specific cabin number you are interested in? Also says this, “Category CA is 420 square feet, CB is 355 square feet, CD and CE are 269 square feet.”
  9. Here is a video link for a CB cabin 14796. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/youtube.php?id=11256
  10. We will be traveling next November on the Joy in a CA cabin. Some people have posted pictures and videos on this site of the CA, CB and CC cabins on deck 14. Hope this helps. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/Norwegian-Joy
  11. I have been searching the deck plans (current and future) for a chapel on the Norwegian Joy, cant seem to find one. We are cruising next November and my daughter is looking to have her wedding ceremony on the Joy during one of the days at sea. If there is no chapel, what about a nice library or any other suggestions for a beautiful place on the ship for a wedding ceremony?
  12. We were on the POA last Dec in 13020, aft facing suite, overlooking pool. There was some noise from the pool deck, you can hear the bands that play down there. That did not bother us. Our biggest issue is that you could see into our cabin from the adjacent 13 and 14th deck. Especially at night with the lights on in our cabin. If you want privacy, you have to draw the curtains. That being said, the balcony is the same way. It’s a trade off, those suites (SE) are a bit bigger but less privacy. “Category SE cabins are 394 to 410 square feet with additional188 square foot balcony. Category SF cabins are from 299 to 306 square feet with additional 188 to 306 square foot balcony. Category SD is 880 square feet.”
  13. I saw the same and called my group reservation agent, we both played around with the web page and modifying our booking, even trying new ones. She filed a ticket with their IT to look at and confirmed this morning it is a glitch in the system. Some cruises are showing the past guest or Latitudes discount but mistake.
  14. Our family has a cruise booked for next year but also thinking about what our next adventure might be after that. In December while on PoA, they had a “Book your next cruise” desk (sorry, can’t remember the actual name). I did not save any of my daily fliers, but I think I remember them offering discounts or perks for booking your next cruise while on the current one. Can anyone provide their experience on this? Do you get a good discount or better price if you book while on the boat vs using the NCL web page or calling an agent after?
