  1. We booked several cruises with good deals but real last minute (one week or a couple days before the sail). 😊
  2. When we chose the 2 perks we could chose excursion credit, internet, dinners, drink package. We chose the drink package because I don't drink but my husband drink wine at dinner and 2 or 3 drinks, that, plus the internet costs, would cover both of us( we made one Excell sheet with the previsible costs) and I can enjoy virgin cocktails . Over here ( Portugal) the drink package include the gatuity.
  3. Thank you very much! I will try to just drop off the bags and do the check-in later 😊
  4. Hello! Can we check in or drop off the luggage at the ship terminal and then return to to the city to spend some time at the Riverwalk Stores near the cruise terminal? is it mandatory to embark after the check-in? Thank you!
  5. I've been reading that there are lockers on the beach (West Bay/Tabyana). Anyone who has been there recently could confirm that they still exist and where they are located? Trying to decide between Bananarama, Paradise and Infinity (apart of the pool, similar prices/conditions).We would like to enjoy snorkeling and the beach. Are there relevant diferences that we should be aware? Tnak you!πŸ˜‰
  6. Thank you very much! It will be a day to lay on the beach πŸ™‚
  7. Totally my thoughts! I have the Facebook messages, I guess they will honor it πŸ˜‰
  8. Last week I sent them one FB message asking for prices and they said that it would be 12 USD of minim consuption...once again they are giving diferent prices/conditions to diferent persons... πŸ™„
  9. Thank you for your input. How much is the Port Pass pp? What pool are you talking about? I was thinking the pool at the port was free...? Thnaks! πŸ™‚
  10. Thank you for your replies πŸ™‚
  11. hello! Is it advisable to wear water shoes in Harvest Caye? Is there any snorkeling that worth to take our snorkeling equipment with us? If yes, where are the best places to snorkel without using one tour? Thank You πŸ™‚
  12. Hello! We will spent a few hour in Ocho rios next February. We chose the Bamboo Blu to spend a couple of hours and then stroll around Ocho Rios port or Ocho Rios Beach ( Bay beach/Turtle beach) To figure out what we need to bring: -Are there snorkeling areas around the Bamboo Blu beach / Ocho Rios bay (Turtle) beach? -Is it necessary to carry water shoes for these beaches? Thank You.
  13. Thank you for your update. Can we walk to the main places as soon we desimbark the ferry or do we have to take a tour? Can we acess beaches in Placencia n a walking distance from the ferry? (I was looking in google maps but it seems that everything is farway to walk...)
  14. Thank you, I will save your indications too πŸ™‚
  15. Thank you very much for that information πŸ™‚
  16. Hello! What address should we give to the taxi to arrive to Malecon 21, is it enough to say the name of the club? can we acess it through the tram? Thank you
  17. Thank you for your answer. So maybe 1 hour will be enough just to walk around. Thanks again
  18. Hello! We will be in Grand cayman next february from 7 to 3 pm. We would like to visit stingray city, do some snorkeling to see fishes and have a few time downtown ( stroll around and buy some crafts) We are studying different options and we have some doubts; we don't want to spend all the time at the tour and losing time in downtown: - Is there any big diference between Barrier reef and Coral Garden? - Does starfish point worth the visit? Or should we spend more time at one of the snorkeling points instead? ( Barrier reef / Coral Garden) - Is one hour enough to stroll around the city (see some buildings and buy some crafts)? Thank you for your inputs!
  19. Thank you for your answers! I hope that is what is going on...I could pay right now but i want to wait until later, we never know about price drops πŸ€”β˜ΊοΈ
  20. Yesterday we booked one cruise sailing on February 7th 2020. The agency got the information from NCL that we should pay a deposit until next Monday and then the final payment December 10th ( 60 days before). I was reading about the 120 days deadline...is it a deadline only for USA or for all the regions ( I'm in Portugal) and maybe there is a mistake? Thanks for your inputs ☺️
  21. Always had good luck with GTY, even had upgrades when booked last minute ( couple of weeks/ days before the cruise). Actually we prefer the lower decks.
  22. I learned today that the things are diferent when buying the cruise in diferent countries. FoR instance in Europe: "Terms and Conditions:Offer is applicable to all categories including IX, OX, BX and MX (Sail Away Categories)." and 20% gratuities on the retail value of the Premium Beverage Package ($19.80 USD per person per day) and/or Soda Package ($1.59 USD per person per day) are included. https://www.ncl.com/es/en/free-at-sea πŸ™‚
  23. Thank you! I was reading about paying 99 + 20% everywhere! This was driving me nuts πŸ˜„ So, i we buy the Premium Beverage Perk, the 99€ is the only thing that we will have to pay if we buy 15$ drinks, right? (I'm asking this because my husband drink but I don't drink, so the package will only be used by him)
