  1. Did you complete the online check in? As soon as we all did that, we were all able to print (for the same cruise).
  2. Some get emails - but just check in online and print your edocs and they should be listed.
  3. How can it be “cancel and rebook” when you would pay a penalty to cancel at this stage of the game? It’s a simple upgrade and the perks are the same. Even if they list the “free and reduced airfare” perk at a higher rate than before because the sail date is close - the airfare is already booked and no changes are needed to anything other than the cabin number. It just doesn’t make sense - especially since others on the same exact cruise upgraded without paying the airfare difference. Another phone call is definitely in order.
  4. Did your perks change at all? It looks like I can upgrade to a mini-suite for a small charge, but I am afraid I will lose my extra OBC (latitude benefit which they are no longer running).
  5. Has anyone done an excursion with this company out of Nassau? They seem to be relatively new and don't appear to have their own website. They do have some reviews (and can be booked) on a popular website where one typically checks reviews for various travel outfits (not sure if I can mention it). They also have a social media page - but is also relatively new. Just want to see if I can hear from anyone directly about their experience with this excursion. Thanks!
  6. The website says all guests on the same reservation, from the same airport, will be on the same flight. Is it considered a different reservation since they are different cabins?
  7. I have bids on a different cruise for both a balcony and a mini-suite; both say pending- but both allow me to modify.
  8. I had a friend who used to eat her french fries in line and it drove me nuts. LOL I never thought about re-sanitizing after loading up my plate, but you can rest assured I will be from now on!
  9. How much is a cab to get there? You say $25 pp included the chair, umbrella, 2 drinks and cab fare back? The restaurant pays for the return cab - or you just added it all up? Thanks!
  10. I am booking a cruise on the Norwegian Sun and I am debating on cabins. There is an inside cabin - 5103 that backs up to an elevator, or 5101 and 5102 that seem to back up to the stairs. Has anyone ever been in these cabins or have advice on either situation? Would the elevators be loud at night? I am not overly concerned about the common areas near either room - just the stair vs. elevator component. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
  11. Personal opinion - they are crap location. Hopefully, you have seen the pictures and the reviews and know what you are getting. If not, do some research in previous reviews, they have no view and have main walkways right in front of them. Can't imagine paying anything for them (on the Edge). Good luck!
  12. I have only been on 1 Celebrity cruise (Edge) and found the meet up to be a waste of time; so I probably will not attend on my next cruise in April. They spent about 3 minutes introducing themselves but did walk around and mingle. I have gone to many on NCL and the officers spend time talking about their area of expertise and often take a few questions. I was at one well-attended a few years back and the CEO (former Kevin Sheehan) showed up. It was probably sheer luck he was on board that day, but what a treat. They also give you a card with the contact information for the officers should you have an issue and send chocolate covered strawberries to your room. I also went to one on MSC Seaside this past October and found it to be very well attended and had bar servers walking around with trays of free cocktails and appetizers. The Captain came and talked, answered questions, and they had a huge cake and took pictures of everyone with the captain which were later sent to everyone's room. The other cruise lines seem to value CC members a bit more and realize the possible impact and importance of this board.
  13. No, we were on the wait list for select dining, but our card said 6:00. We never got that letter. We asked on the first night where we were supposed to eat and they said we can go wherever we want. I am not sure if we ended up with select or what. We only booked a few weeks in advance.
  14. We were assigned a 6pm dining time but no assigned restaurant. We just showed up (mostly around 6, but a few times a bit later) and had a table for 2 every time. The one time we shared, they asked us if it was 'ok'. We never had to wait for table and ate in all 4 of the main dining rooms throughout the week.
  15. Let's say you buy the BJ chips: $500 gets you $550 - and all in promo chips? And these don't count towards your loyalty points when used? How do they change them out to regular chips so eventually you get credit for the money being wagered? Do they swap them out after each win? This seems so odd. It would make sense if the promotional part is only the extra $50.
