  1. I agree with @PelicanBill on this point - if you want a HA cabin you need to book one. Don't hope to get moved to one once you board, it doesn't work that way. This goes way beyond 'requesting' one - you need to specify a HA cabin and ensure that the cabin number on your confirmation matches a HA cabin on the deck plans online, PRIOR to the cruise (within minutes of getting the confirmation, preferably).
  2. Sat phones are INSANELY expensive (have you looked at them?) and seem like voice-only so I doubt this is the case. Iridium, for example, is $100/month for 100 minutes of airtime per month (with a 1 year minimum term) and the device is $1400. The purchase price of the device can be lowered if you go with a 2 year term. Bottom line, I doubt selling internet packages is why they're not allowing satellite phones.
  3. I once connected in ATL to an international flight from a domestic one in about 20 minutes. Off the domestic flight, to the tram to the international terminal, showed the gate agent my passport and they slammed the door shut behind me as I walked down the jet bridge. My bag even made it!! This was a Delta-Delta connection.
  4. You're thinking of the STUDIO. NCL has SOLO categorized cabins in inside through balcony categories now (was announced in November 2023 and sailings started in January 2024), this is what the OP is asking about.
  5. Correct, USB is low-voltage, no way it could be used to power a 110v device.
  6. @schmoopie17 my parents have done that type of itinerary on Princess
  7. No, can't do one US port to another without a stop outside North America (Caribbean included). Look up the PVSA...
  8. Can't do that with US ports unless one of them is a repositioning with a stop in South America.
  9. well... I see how I rate with you!! haha Jokes aside... Might be cool. I agree that it might be good as a >7 day cruise. I loved my 2 weeks this year, but I skew to a younger demographic (I'm 44, a cruise that has an avg. age of 70+ isn't really my thing!!) so I'm trying to figure out how to swing a B2B or S2S for my next one so I get more time on board but get younger folks. My dad turns 81 this year, they embark in 2 weeks on a TA (I have to drive them and another couple the 3-4 hours to port), his birthday is during the cruise.
  10. Just need to scroll through threads in this forum, most of these questions are asked and answered at least once a week.
  11. No, you pay $250 each and get $250 OBC. No need to question, it's in B&W on their website - https://www.ncl.com/cruisenext
  12. non-Haven CruiseNext are $250 each. If you do the BOGO you're only paying for 4, which is $2000. That's 6,000 points or about $60 in redemption value if my math is correct.
  13. You buy on board. There are groups on certain social media sites where they are sold. I don't imagine there are many being sold anymore unless the people just need the cash or have decided to swear off NCL for one reason or another. The certificates no longer expire, there were lots sold because some people had some expiring in the next year and ended up not planning to cruise before the expiration.
  14. That may be so. However, like @njhorseman I highly doubt that a "I want to drink soda but you don't have the kind I would prefer" is a valid reason to get an exception, even though you have a medical reason you MUST drink diet soda. They have diet soda on board, just not the flavor you'd prefer. Next will be the 'I won't drink the tap water and I don't like the water you sell, I need to bring my own as water is medically necessary for sustaining life so I have to have something to drink'.
  15. WHO changed it? NCL sent you the updated booking, but is it possible the airline adjusted schedules? Is it possible the airline changed the time of the flight on which you were booked so as to be too early to make it from the ship to the airport in time? There may not have been another flight meeting NCL's financial requirements that left on July 4.
