  1. We also enjoyed the Central Park cabins.
  2. Blow dryer in the bathroom looked like it was from the 1970s? There was a hand held one in the closet.
  3. We recently sailed the Sun to Great Stirrup Cay and Nassau. This cruise was booked 2 ½ weeks prior and we were fortunate to get an accessible cabin. Gratuities Almost $21 per person per day! Total for two $123. When I questioned this, the Guest Services Rep says the increase is on the 3 and 4 day cruises. Is this due to the “free open bar”? Food Definitely a decline in taste and temperature. Several dishes lacked flavor. The food whether in the dining room or the buffet was often luke warm and not hot. This three day cruise had lots of repeat items on the menu such as calamari, French onion soup, meatloaf and bruschetta. These repeat times were not on the classic menu. Example – the items were listed one day on the appetizer menu and brought back another day for dinner or on the buffet. Day 2 we went to the buffet for breakfast. The bacon was almost raw (served pink and pale white). I pointed this out to an officer and she agreed. I was brought crispy bacon however how can Norwegian service under cooked pork to so many people. The soda in the dining room and most bars was flat. We do not use ice so I cannot be blamed. Did NCL reduce the soda due to the “free open bar”. Discount on 3 day dining package which we did not purchase. Service Dining staff was excellent. We ate all three dinners in the Four Seasons dining room located on deck 5 mid-ship. Again, the food has declined and we have previously enjoyed NCL. Entertainment We didn’t attend any of the game shows or the glow party. The newlywed not so newlywed show was entertaining, The cruise director Jackie had a good sense of humor. Cabin We stayed in 5213 (ocean view accessible). We liked having two closets and the cabin was able to accommodate a scooter and a rollator with room to spare. The bathroom also had ample space. My mom used the shower seat. The cabin does has a slight step to enter the bathroom. The downside was the design of the bathroom. When showering water filled the floor and it took several towels to dry the water. Having two closets was nice. Accessibility Too many inclines and high thresholds around the ship. The scooter was ok with navigating these however using the rollator we had to lift it and it would not roll smoothly over many thresholds. Most public restrooms lacked a button to automatically open the door. Very different for someone using a scooter or wheelchair to enter. Movies After day 1, my mom went to Guest Services to ask for movie times. In the cabin there were two movie channels. Semi-newer movies shown were: The Intruder, The Mule, Avengers, Poms, The Best of Enemies, Dumbo, Apollo 11 Internet I purchased 100 minutes. According to the chart I’m supposed to get 15 minutes free based on my status. I went to the Internet Manager and he had no idea what I was talking about and sent me to the Cruise Next desk. That gentleman also had no idea and tried to send me back to the Internet Manager. He then asked me where I saw the free minutes. I pointed to the chart listed on the NCL website. The Cruise Next Manager went to speak with the Internet Manager and it was resolved on Day 2. Overall Disappointed!
  4. Returned from the Sun. Discounts were available however people shouldn't expect this going forward.
  5. No! Your mind is off base. I’m asking if the OBC can be used for gratuities. I think the question has been answered.
  6. Now that you have OBC, can you cancel prepaid gratuities?
  7. The Free Open Bar on Sun and Sky does not include premium alcohol nor bottled water or premium coffee. The drink package under the Free at Sea promotion includes these items and you pay the 18% on the package.
  8. We’re sailing on the Sun soon. The online 3 night dining package is $118. Has anyone seen the packages less expensive if purchased onboard?
  9. The low sale numbers could be do to being able to use two certificates for any cabin category.
  10. I'm interested also. Could it be a new name for MTD?
  11. Little britain is correct. Chops +1 is Chops plus another speciality restaurant. The cost in the cruise planner is per person.
  12. Totally agree..Febraury is a mixed bag sometimes cold and wet.
