  1. I submitted mine on April 21 and got a response on April 23, so one business day (I'm in the US). It might have been sped up by the fact that my husband did the match a week earlier, but we hadn't booked the cruise yet, so I think not. Got a 2-for-1 cruise that had had a price drop in one week, so we got a 7-day cruise out of Venice in November for $459 each, and that included Fantastica level benefits. I level-matched from NCL Platinum to Gold. Now for a whole new experience... --Michael
  2. I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you. I'm taking my first 5-day cruise in January 2019, and was going to try to set one up. However, the meet and greet is almost always the first sea day, and my cruise doesn't have a sea day. So I'm thinking they may not do one. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Everyone, Going on the Sky in January 2019. We get to the port at 6 am at the end of the cruise, but our flight home isn't until 5 pm, and we'd like to spend some time touristing in Miami. Is there a place we can check our bags for the day? Or can we check them in in the morning at the airport and then go back into Miami for a little while before heading back out to the airport? NOTE: We disembark on MLK Day, so some places might be closed. --Michael
  4. Hubby and I have the "beds together" preference in our NCL profiles. We always get on the ship and they're separate. Two men traveling together, different last names = separate beds. It's really no problem to have the steward change the configuration. My only question is: why give the option on the website if they're not going to use it? -- michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. I think the Book of Faces is rapidly taking on this duty, unfortunately. I see a LOT of traffic on the FB pages for all kinds of NCL cruises. Sigh. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. I think we're doing an 8- day around Japan instead. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. DH and I were looking at this cruise, but discovered that we didn't haven enough vacation time to do it properly. We were both laid off in 2016, and both started new jobs in 2017, so our vacation clocks dropped back to two weeks of leave per year. (Frustrating American leave policies.) We wish you the best, because this itinerary looks wonderful! -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. They can't. Unless they're married to each other and can prove it. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. We did self-walkoff, and there were plenty of cabs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. We were able to easily make a 10:40 flight to Newark (then on to Chicago). The ship docked so early that we were doing self- walk off by 6:30,I think. We were at the checkin counter before they opened, so I know we were at the airport before 7:30. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. I work for the American Marketing Association, the trade association for marketers in North America. We've had marketers from MSC attend some of our training sessions; perhaps I should work on getting NCL's folks in. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. I don't know if you live in Boston or not; if you do, this advice won't work for you. We're taking the Dawn from Boston to Quebec in September/October. We were initially looking at open jaw plane tickets, and they were pretty expensive. Then we looked at booking two one-ways, and they were much cheaper. So we're flying from Chicago to Boston, taking the cruise, then flying Quebec to Chicago afterwards. So if you're thinking of how to get back to Boston to fly home (and if you haven't already bought your plane tickets), look into flying home from Quebec. -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. Loyalty match question: does MSC match your loyalty level on all your cruises with them, or only the first one? I've heard it's only the first one, but just want verification. Thanks! -- Michael Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
