  1. Also, if you have an interest in participating in the Upgrade Advantage Program with NCL then it's critical to confirm that your TA has not opted out
  2. Yes..... from NCL's FAQ section concerning the DSC: The reason there's a fixed service charge is an important one: Our Crew (as are the crew from other lines) is encouraged to work together as a team. Staff members including complimentary restaurant staff, stateroom stewards and behind-the-scenes support staff are compensated by a combination of salary and incentive programs that your service charge supports. As a reminder, Haven / Suite Butlers, Conceirge and the Splash Academy staff DO NOT get anything from this pool.
  3. Gratuities for the open bar and the Daily Service Charge are 2 separate entities
  4. Fired is a strong representation of an end to a business contract....... ironically, Andy Stuart started in 2015 and that year alone NCL "fired" Nickelodeon and Blue Man Group along with Zakarian.
  5. NCL partners with Sport24 for their sports programming...... you might want to check their website: https://sport24live.com/ However, there are other threads here on CC that have indicated that an individual ship may or may not have the same programming as other ships in the NCL fleet. So, while the schedule is most likely what you will see...... it isn't always.
  6. Sidenote: NCL and Zakarian ended their relationship in 2015
  7. I started this thread a while ago concerning US ports that charge a local tax that may be helpful: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=2426115
  8. Bermuda is the exception where you get one excursion credit for each day you're in port... can't combine them for one big excursion.
  9. Is this true for US travelers? I was under the impression you had to fill out the form and process it through Miami post cruise. UK passengers I know can do it on board before disembarking
  10. I blame FDR for this catastrophic cruise and bet if Andy Stuart had his way the cruise would have unicorns and rainbows and lobster
  11. Coffee, tea, milk, flavored drink (like kiwi or strawberry, etc) and some juices with breakfast.
