  1. Yup, I was able to stack both discounts as well as my bonus FCC
  2. Well after the weekend of talk with the Wife we decided to put a Deposit down, the price was great and my casino promo was good as well, and since we are close by and almost always take this sailing every year if it gets cancelled we will have no problem rescheduling or taking one last minute.. only time will tell, Can't wait to get back cruising!
  3. I just got my new Carnival Players club offers and I can book a, as I like to call a booze cruise, since I live only an hour away from Long Beach I was looking at the 4 day Ensenada and Catalina in October for my Birthday, and I can get $250 OBC drinks on us in the Casino and a few more things for just under $500 for 2 in an oceanview cabin. I'd only be risking $100 for the deposit and I could always cancel and get FCC... just wanted to bounce some thoughts off some fellow CC'ers and see if this quarantine is making me crazy or not... TIA - Matco
  4. Having just dealt with CAS over the phone for just an hour I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything went, they were very understanding of the situation and transferred all my discounts and stuff from my old cancelled booking to my new with no questions asked. By far a way better experience than that with NCL...
  5. Our Bliss sailing 5/24 was obviously cancelled and we automatically received our FCC April 30th along with our bonus 25%. The 20% off discount was tied to our latitudes number so when we rebooked and entered our guest names and latitudes numbers the 20% off was automatically applied, in addition to that I called CAS and was able to stack my Diamond players card 20% off discount on top of NCL's 20% off rebooking discount, that allowed us to upgrade our former mini suite (now club suite) into The Haven! Now starts the long wait yet again
  6. November 30th 2019 5 Day Cabo Getaway from LA aboard the Royal Princess, was our first time on Princess and it was great, we hope to have another one booked for the end of this year
  7. they touched on airports and ferry travel and they said there is no impact there
  8. listening in now, no word on cruises specifically but they say gatherings of more than 250 people including leisure and recreation which I would assume includes the boarding process at the port.... they say its thru March but he said its highly likely that it will be extended, fingers crossed the port stays open and things get better as we are set to leave out of Seattle in May
  9. I bet by next week the prices will drop back down again
  10. NCL's pricing is so erratic yesterday our trip was $560 cheaper than what we paid with 12 cabins still available in our category today its $200 MORE than what we paid and still 12 cabins open. My guess is they upped the prices to cover the OBC credits...
  11. I was told the only way to qualify for the new promo is to upgrade the cabin otherwise we only qualify for the price drop OBC
  12. wondering the same thing for our trip to Alaska in may, I think I'm going to give NCL a call...
  13. 93 here first time on NCL we are on the Bliss Alaska sailing
  14. We booked a embassy suites by Sea Tac airport the Friday before the cruise and then we booked the Hyatt Regency Seattle for Saturday night before the ship leaves, its about 1 mile from the Pier, and then we booked the embassy suites again Sunday after the cruise to utilize the airport shuttle
  15. heres a current list that I have premium-beverage-package.pdf premium-plus-beverage-package.pdf
  16. Great thanks for the info, I'm headed to Vegas tonight and will talk to my host about any comps or deals I'm missing out on for NCL, then I'll keep my eye on the price for our cruise before I call and ask about upgrading or adding OBC
  17. Came across this awhile back might be helpful for someones bar hopping trip! NCL_Beverage_List.pdf
  18. Lots of good info here, thanks I just found out about the new levels of Diamond, good to know. Now here's my next question, Price Drops, who to I contact for price drops CAS or NCL, right now the price for our room has dropped by about 200, not much to write home about but it does come with all offers instead of just the 2 we choose at the time. From my understanding we can either upgrade to a higher room as long as the prices are the same or slightly more if we pay the difference or we can get OBC right?
  19. Yea I am Platinum with M-Life also but have not taken a RCL cruise thru them yet
  20. Thanks for all the info, I will be headed to Vegas next weekend and I will check with Caesars to see if I'm missing out on any NCL comps
  21. That's what I've been noticing on the ships lately in regards to the blackjack tables, kinda sucks but we will see how they play out come May
  22. Wow thanks for the great info! I will definitely have to give them a call after we get back. Just out of curiosity, you by all means don not have to answer but what does your typical play on the ship look like? I play mostly blackjack and roulette with the occasional 3 card poker table thrown in the mix I'd say average bet of $10-25 a hand, sometimes we play the $1 and $5 slots. nothing too crazy by any means but just enough to stay on the radar.
