  1. Thanks for the replies. I like that on some Royal ships this is still available.
  2. I haven't been on NCL in a few years. I've been on a few other lines in the meantime. Some lines and ships have an app and because of the limited amount of wifi let through to connect to the app you are able to access imessaging without any internet plan on board. Does this leak of wifi happen on NCL as well with their app? I would like to be able to contact my kids at home while I'm on board. Thanks
  3. Thank you for the quick replies.
  4. If we are planning on spending a few hours at the beach am I able to grab a mini box of cereal (cheerios) for my kids for a snack? I know we have done this is some of the Caribbean ports and as long as it is a packaged item it has been fine but every country is different. First time on Celebrity, do they have those mini cereal boxes? I don't plan on being a tourist that the banana dogs are sniffing out, but a quick beach snack is nice. Thanks
  5. I've exchanged money on Norwegian and Royal and have gotten better rates than at home with my bank. First time on Celebrity next month so I don't know how they do it but I've been pleasantly surprised on other lines.
  6. Royal's Anthem of the Seas is out of Bayonne too and currently has a kids sail free promo.
  7. Can someone please clarify this for me. In the past it has had to be cans brought on. My son had a mini bottle of soda taken as they said it had to be in a can to prove it hadn't been tampered with. Is this still the case? 12 cans can be brought on per person? Thanks
  8. When you got your letter from your TA did show any credit? Are you Canadian? Could the original $38 be $50CAD put with a terrible exchange rate? If it was an Expedia Canadian group the onboard credit could be in CAD. I have had that before.
  9. I was on the Dawn 3 years ago and really enjoyed the entertainment on it. The Earth, Wind, Fire show (I believe that is what it was called), acrobats, etc. I have been on 13 cruises and the shows it offered have been our favourite. He have been on NCL, Royal and Carnival but open to other suggestions. Has anyone been on another ship recently with similar style of shows vs the typical musicals? Thanks
  10. I was on the Fantasy April 2017 and Mikey was the cruise director. He was amazing. I don't usually care who the cruise director is, they aren't going to make or break my holiday. He was the first cruise director in my 15 cruises that actually stood out. We will be in the south again this fall and I'm deciding between the Triumph (about a half hour closer to where we will be) or the Fantasy. Last year we really enjoyed the Fantasy but I'm wondering if it will be disappointing without Mikey. Anyone been on with and without him. Is it still a fun crew with plenty going on?
  11. I agree that the Dawn does not have anything comparable to the waterfront on the Breakaway but the Dawn is amazing and unique in it's own ways. There was some outdoor space to relax, we had a balcony but did not spend much time on it. Of my 13 cruises (11 different ships, 3 different lines) the Dawn has been my favourite and I'll be back on her again soon.
