  1. Thanks. I will have my friend double check with out TA, but I think they were sold out already.
  2. That would be a dream!!!! We are so used to Disney and the prices they charge we could probably do a mini and still save money. But to be honest - we are fine with the smaller rooms and to me that just means I can cruise more each year (2-3 times) for the same amount I would have spent on 1 Disney. So while a mini would be tempting... more days at sea is more tempting to me. We booked this cruise really early so are hopeful there will price drops like on our first one. And who knows... if it goes down enough maybe we'll bump or bid.
  3. I had tried to see some pictures on this site, but you can't view the pictures unless you are a member and pay a fee. I did find one video that wasn't blocked though so thank you for pointing it out.
  4. We recently sailed on the Breakaway and stayed in an inside cabin. DH and I had been worried by how small the room was going to be because we are long time Disney cruisers and their inside rooms are pretty large (185 SF). We watched videos and looked at pictures on the internet so we were prepared for minimal storage and I packed accordingly (packing cubes, extra bags to hold things since there were no drawers). When we got to the room, yes it was small but were pleasantly surprised how there was plenty of storage and we found we spent much less time in our room than we did on our Disney cruises because there was so much to do. Our next cruise will be on the Sun (God willing) and this time we chose an ocean view. We are trying to convince friends to come with us (also long time Disney cruisers), but money is tight for them and an ocean view is outside of their comfort zone. I am trying to convince them to try an inside room, but they saw how small our room was on the Breakaway when we showed them our pictures. By the pictures I have seen the inside rooms on the Sun, her rooms appear to be larger with better storage. While my GF is convinced, her DH is not and keeps saying they are too small, there is no room and he doesn't want to go because of it. Has anyone stayed in an inside on both the Breakaway and the Sun (or their sister ships)? Can you help me with your opinions on how they compare? Any pictures of the rooms on the Sun would be helpful. The ones here on CC ship information show a family or accessible - not a standard inside. Thank you in advance for your help.
  5. My husband got Blanton's a couple times in Grand Cayman including Single Barrel, Straight from the Barrel and Gold. We just got back from a western on the Breakaway and the store in Grand Cayman has been out for months. Last December when we were in St Thomas (Disney cruise) we found a store that had all three types, but his prices were stupid... he wanted $75 for the single barrel and the others were at least $50 a bottle more than we paid in Grand Cayman so we passed. We did find that the ship had good prices on the Johnnie walker line (we did several tastings in the duty free shop on the Breakaway cruise) especially the Johnnie Walker Blue compared to Cozumel and they were well below the duty free prices on the islands. They were a little high on the Don Julio 1942 I wanted, but they price matched the island prices.
  6. Thank you for the reply. We are looking at this room for Alaska. I saw a review of the room and it said it had a solid white balcony, not clear glass so the view is obstructed (not a full view of your surroundings). Can you confirm this?
  7. @newfielover Did you stay in one of those rooms? I was just looking at Room L201 or other room in that area. They are across from the thermal spa (access from the deck above). L201 is under the fitness area, L202 looks like it is under the massage rooms. We actually have an ocean view booked already, but can upgrade for less than $400 and are wondering if it's worth it.
  8. This is going to be our first cruise in 15 years with a casino (we usually sail Disney). I like the penny and nickel slots - can I just bring cash? Can I put a $20 bill into the machine? Or is there another way to limit it to the cash I want to spend? I would really prefer it not be charged to my room.
  9. You are correct - no PM. Sorry. The private groups I have found the most information on Norwegian freestyle Daily under Files (seem to be the most organized of the 2 I belong to) (note the small f) Norwegian (NCL) Freestyle is one too, but a smaller group so not as much info Some are pictures in posts, but I think the most are under Files Good luck
  10. Maybe the one you are going to doesn't do that? The one I went to was specifically for Dailies for NCL. I can PM you the information about where exactly I found it if you like
  11. I finally found something. I joined a couple Freestyle Dailies "groups". Then found out today when not seeing anything they have a "file" option (look to the options on the left) - BINGO I found the one I was needing. Hope that helps
  12. Checking back in to see if anyone has the Freestyle Dailies from the Breakaway January 4th Western they can share? Or for the current cruise that left 2/1/20. The Western that hit those 3 islands is our favorite cruise itinerary.
  13. Sorry, I am not sure. I have only ever booked for me and DH.
  14. @BarbinMich Thank you for telling me this. I pulled the deck plans for both ships and see what you mean. We chose the trip on the Emerald. You are right it has so many more outdoor areas. That was something I hadn't thought to look at when comparing the 2 itineraries.
  15. I'd love to hear some recent comparisons/opinions of the 2 ships. We are looking a Alaska cruises out of Seattle and these are our 2 choices.
  16. I did find your post and it is very helpful. Thank you for posting it to the boards.
  17. DH and I are taking our first NCL cruise this spring on the Breakaway out of Port Canaveral. We will be doing a Western Caribbean cruise and we are very familiar with the ports and already know where we are going and what we will do when we get to each port. We are Platinum with Disney and know the ships routine and what they offer while at sea, the activities, shows and restaurants. I would love to see some of the dailies for the Breakaway WC itinerary to get an idea of what might be offered on our cruise so I can have a better idea of things that we can do and what we should be looking for once we get on the ship. Things like tastings, crafts, trivia and I have seen mention in posts for other ships painting classes (which I would LOVE to try). I appreciate any copies that could be posted, or suggestions of what to look for, or where to go to find out a list of things to do. Thanks... we are very excited to try the new ship/line and we want to make the most of it.
  18. Will they open the bottles for you at any bar or should I pack a cork screw in my checked bag? I wouldn't want to bring it to dinner, but have it in my room to enjoy.
  19. Was the summer ale the one in my picture above? If it is it was good - it is a beer from the islands, but it is brewed by a contract brewer in Florida. You can't buy it in bottles in the US, but if you go to the tap room as the contract brewer you can enjoy it on top according the Virgin Island brewers.
  20. I normally don't drink wine so that's good to know. My friend packed her own. DH and I drink beer. Last cruise we started the cruise with 2-6packs. When we got off we had almost 2 cases (western Caribbean) because we hit Mega for unique European beers and in Grand Cayman we always hit CayBrew and we usually bring a case back on the ship with us. And no security does not stop us. We also found out in St. Thomas this past cruise that you can bring filled Growlers back onto the ship with you which was great because the brewery in the port ran out of cans.
