  1. I dont think he did which i why I did. If I made a mistake, oooh, I'm sorry
  2. I couldnt figure out how to use the coffee machine and there was no one to ask easily. I did enjoy helping myself to cookies in the evening. Only saw 1 man using the lounge on a couple of days.
  3. I sure would like to know what people miss so much about no more "turn down service" Ok, I get the towel animals. They're cute. But people are upset because someone doesnt come into their cabin before bed and turn down the covers? (I'm assuming that's what it is) Seriously?
  4. For $300 I would definitely go for the balcony although some have pointed out, some balconies are not ideal. I think your 7 yr old daughter would like it too. Usually when trying to decide the price of the balcony is much greater which a factor for anyone on a budget. I understand some are not and that's great
  5. of course that depends on time of year and also itenarary. There would be no sitting out in your pajamas on the cruises I've been on in Fall, Spring and even January to Bermuda. During the day maybe, but not at night unless you wear a parka
  6. and also on it own. I hate when there is a toilet with no access to a sink closely, I know it is fairly common in hotels, RVs etc but I hate it
  7. What I love best about cruising with NCL is Freestyle Dining. So many choices in restaurants and other eateries and times that you can eat whenever and wherever your mood takes you.
  8. I agree with you about the location of the studio. On the Getaway the studio section was a short distance down the hall from one of the lobbies. It was very peaceful also., with interesting lighting. But I only saw one or two people in the studio lounge at one time. Someone told me that was because there was a solo meetup elsewhere on the ship.
  9. It's laid out better? The toilet is in its own walled off area, the shower stands alone and the sink is on another wall. the inside cabin has a regular bathroom, all 3 things in one room, with shelves. The thing that makes the studio work is that it is just for one person
  10. That is very unusual, what you would call an outlier lol Most infants in the splash pool wont be potty trained
  11. Oh no.....that must have been awful. I almost fell on my face (or as they say "faceplanted") in Mexico with a margarita in my hand. It was an uneven edge to the sidewalk. I caught myself and heard a woman behind me gasp. Freak accidents can happen anywhere It usually happens so quickly that you dont know until its over but in your case you had "souvenirs". One time in NYC I was walking along the sidewalk with the crowd and for some reason my ankle just went out on me. I almost went down but a man walking beside me (another helpful New Yorker!) managed to catch my elbow and pull me upright, then continued walking and talking with the group he was with.
  12. When I was on the QM2 many years ago after a major norovirus outbreak in the previous cruise, only staff were allowed to serve the food from the self serve areas of the buffet. They were standing there with tongs and you told them what you wanted.
