  1. We are taking South America cruise with Norwegian Star in January 2020 - Santiago to Buenos Aires. Is anyone here able to scan the NCL Freestyle Daily (the daily newsletter) of previous cruise (preferably in 2019) in PDF format? Thanks in advance!
  2. I use tapatalk to read CC because access to the forum is much easier. Please enable tapatalk. Thank you.
  3. Days before the cruise, take probiotics to boost beneficial flora in your body. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  4. We sailed with Jade in October 2013 to Western Mediterranean. European cruise is all about ports and sightseeing. Lobster was served on the first dinner. I remembered refusing the third lobster since I couldn't eat more than two. Food was better than my recent Caribbean cruise with RCI in April 2018.
  5. Thanks for your suggestions. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  6. In our last cruise in April with Royal, we bought a wine package. We're disappointed with some because they tasted bad. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  7. Hi everyone. We want to bring our own wine to NCL Escape. Does anyone know how much wine corkage fee costs in MDR? I assume bringing wine is allowed because it is not in the list of prohibited items at https://www.ncl.com/prohibited-items Thanks.
  8. I do suitcase packing two weeks before leaving for overseas or cruise trips. I do it because I'm forgetful. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  9. Does RCI sail to South America, like Chile, Argentina and Brazil? I can't it online. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  10. I booked my upcoming cruise with sail away rate, which is $200 less than the lowest normal rate. With normal rate, I can pick the cabin number and two free stuff. I prefer sail away because I am not interested in the free stuff (I don't drink).
  11. I sailed with RCCL last April 2018 with one stop in Belize City. It was a tender port, but since I took "Barrier Reef Snorkel" excursion (purchased from the cruise line), there was a dedicated boat traveling from the cruise ship to the private island where the snorkel started. Barrier reef was super. We were lucky with excellent weather, no current and warm water. Some photos below. Here are two nudibranch, natural predator, devouring a sea fan.

  13. I bought full face snorkel mask from Amazon for a cruise trip to Caribbean. It isn't bad. I tried three times at snorkel sites in key west, cozumel and Belize. It is for surface snorkel only and not diving. When I push my head down to deeper water, the mask resists to float. In a group snorkel in Belize, I can't talk with guide unless I take the mask off. That's another issue. Sent from my HTC U11 life using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you for such a great cruise review. I can image the effort you had spent working on the photos, and remembering the stories of all of them. Does T-Mobile data plan (which I also have) cover all ports in the itinerary? Did the ship cruise along the strait of Magellan?
