  1. For those of you who have recently been on the Joy can you tell me how long the Beatles band plays in The Cavern Club? Also on the nights they have the Beatles show, have they been having 2 shows or just 1? I thought I saw some where that they did have 2 shows a night but wanted to get confirmation from recent cruisers.
  2. Is it better doing an early morning tour or afternoon tour to see the whales? I didn’t know if they are more active or around more during certain times of the day.
  3. I know NCL wants to get as much money from cruisers as possible but Margaritaville and/or American Diner always seem to be empty so what’s the point. They cannot be making any money from these. That space could be better used for something that the passengers actually want and would use.
  4. With this so called sale my usual Thanksgiving cruise is around $1500 more than what I paid last year. For the first time I’m probably going to wait to closer to the cruise and see where the prices are with NCL and the other cruise lines.
  5. I see your in Canada. Maybe that is why and the folks from the US just have to do it the other way.
  6. That certainly doesn’t show up for me when looking at Shore Excursions. I get the Latitudes discount showing up but the $50 credit is not deducted or showing up.
  7. Thanks! Yes it’s a round trip from Seattle. At least we’ll know and my DH won’t ask me why were being charged for drinks.
  8. When your on an Alaskan cruise are you charged taxes on drinks on the ship when you are in ports? I wasn’t sure since they are US ports so I am curious.
  9. We will be taking a cruise out of Seattle this summer and was wondering how easy it is to get an Uber after cruise to airport. Our ship docks at 6:00 am and our flight back home leaves at 1:30. Where is the best place to meet your ride? Is it best to use Port Valet so you don’t have to worry about luggage or checking in at the airport? TIA!
  10. I saved $1100 by booking my Alaskan cruise on Friday (Jan 31st) when I still got 20% off for Latitudes. The 30% off sale is a joke! For any of the cruises I’m looking at for our annual Thanksgiving cruise the prices are outrageous. If this sale continues I won’t be sailing with NCL for Thanksgiving.
  11. I booked an Alaskan cruise yesterday afternoon on the off chance the Latitudes discount would be gone starting today so I got lucky. Today that cruise would have cost me $1100 more.
  12. Same thing happened to us. With the new tier we would have been 3 points away from Platinum so I booked a 3 night Pearl cruise (which I’m on right now) to get Platinum but after we got off our Thanksgiving Cruise we are now Platinum at 77 points. Not complaining at all!!
  13. We did this cruise in June 2019 but we embarked in Rome. It was fabulous! The port days were very long but so worth it. Don’t worry about the negative reviews and go and have a great time.
  14. Thanks for that explanation. I had no idea about that.
