  1. Thanks everyone, I actually got my cabin assignment the other day and could not be happier where they assigned us. Not over or under anything noisy. nothing in the view and really centralized locations.. Thank you all very much for your kind support
  2. Hello, I am new to NCL and just accepted an upgrade to a Mid Ship Mini Suite Balcony Guarantee on the Joy. Knowing the ship is still to undergo all the upgrades required to bring her into the US.. My question is.. What do these cabin look like, if there is a risk of obstructed views.. Is there going to be something like a life boat right in our line of vision.. I am feeling like I made a mistake.. Please talk me out of it TIA

  4. the great thing about deck is that it says obstructed but in most cases where there is coves on deck 2 .. the obstruction is an over hanging life boat.. and I can say we were in a cove on the Breeze and it did not impede our view at all.. actually kept the deck of our balcony cool and shaded the whole cruise which it sure was nice not to burn the soles of my feet lol
  5. Repo has been changed as well.. was Nov 18th now is Nov 16th
  6. Yes you certainly could.. I did this on our BC8 cruise and had no problems at all paying off our cruise.The bonus GC's I added the amount on board at guest services and was able to cash them out in the casino as the bonus ones are Non refundable obc.. which means use them or lose them.. Cheers/ Salut
  7. Yes Canadian can buy them at the present exchange on the US dollar.. I bought 2 $1000 GC and got 2 $100 GC bonus
  8. We are booked on our next cruise as a group.. some of what has been said so far is true some not so much.. The group leader does get 1 free Berth per 8 cabins booked but it is not the whole fare it is only a portion.. the commissionable part.. Say of an $800 pp cabin the berth would be about $400 or so..still pays the full port fees and taxes..Anyone booked will get amenities points and the TA usually picks on thing from a list of choices .. many choose the $100 per cabin obc so the members can spend the obc as they wish. If you book as ES rate many price drops can happen between the booking date and sailing date.. and NOT all of them qualify for group rate bookings so that is a huge down fall.. But with so many cabins being booked some one is either getting a whole lot of their buddies on for nearly free or the TA is pocketing the TC.. happy sails
  9. Thank you for starting the thread.. I sure could use a break from all the smoking threads.. I have heard about Ships coins for purchase on some on line shops.. I would love to be able to buy one for each Cruise chip I am on and have it waiting in my cabin. Sure I love my SOAS but I just think the coins would be a neat change.. Thank you again for the change of subject. Cheers
  10. I got $2000 worth of GC during the proportion.1st let me say I am sorry you all are not having the best of luck getting thru and may even be out of time for these. It was relatively easy to get them.I ordered 2-$1000 GC and with in 24 hours I got he 2 $100 GC sent to my email. Super happy about this.. I called my TA and got him to pay off most of the cruise . I wanted to leave a bit on there in case of price drop. According the document I read it said this promotion was suppose to end at midnight tonight but you can still try.. the worst they can say is no.. Good luck to you all
  11. Welcome The newest is the Breeze.. at a 130,00 tons it is currently the large ship on Carnival fleet but the Vista due out in 2016 is 135,000 40 berths long will be the largest in their fleet.. there is fabulous thread going here on CC for just this ship and sharing information as it comes out. If it is anything like the US inaugural for the Breeze bookings could come out as early and the late spring of next year. Carnival is keeping very tight lipped about this ship and I will be watching John Heald's post on his blog very closely. Cheers
  12. Yes they did.. They had him in a coridoned off area were they had the area secure for nearly 30 hours.. he was in someones backyard when the got him.. The only mention of Rambo was a mental illness call Rambo Syndrome where someone take on a persona of a fictional character because that is all their brain can handle.. One of the dead and a young child and another one on the way but at least no one else will get hurt at this persons hands.. I am sure will get the updates from many of the cruisers as the communication lines are re opened.. It was on 10 minutes after midnight last night EST that they caught him and on the news things are slowly returning to normal. When they caught him he said " He is done".. Ya buddy you are done!!! Keep praying for Mike , Tracy and the others until we hear they are safe and sound
  13. The RCMP are similar to our Armed Forces in that we are esprit du corps no matter where we live.. This affects the whole country and the family of the Red Serge.. There were students on a field trip to NB that we know personally and I can tell you those kiddos could not wait to get on the bus out of there and on their way home ..There will be lots of hugs and tears for them I am sure.. May god keep them safe we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time..
  14. Got one for the Bloggers cruise
  15. Just booked this for the 1st time.. I got a Pm from someone going on our cruise. At the time there was 19 now there is 18.. looking forward to trying this service for the 1st time. Happy Cruising
