  1. Sorry but the service in the Haven restaurant far exceeds service at any specialty dining venue (in my experience). I’d be upset. For the OP, if you want the sanctuary of the Haven (and I don’t blame you) have your butler bring your said specialty restaurant dinner to the Haven or your cabin. Especially if you can’t get a dining time you like.
  2. Pretty sure this was just a brag post. They never provided any useful info on their upgrade process, even in the upgrade thread.
  3. Would love to see the dailies, or at least the daily summaries. Thanks!
  4. Yes we definitely need 2 full baths. I love the deck 9 and 10 OS, had one in Alaska. Just cracks me up that minimum bid is $750 pp but the difference in booking it outright is like $50 pp. lol
  5. I'm in a 2 bed haven suite on the Gem in 2 weeks and they keep sending me emails to bid on an owners and deluxe owners suite. Which I could actually pay outright to get into for far less and I have 4 ppl, why would I want 1 bed and 1 bath? Lol, NCL you’re wacky!
  6. It doesn’t smell or feel stuffy ever IMO. If is nice enough out they will open the roof.
  7. I agree with this. Haven on Jewel class ships is not worth the extra money, a regular SF, SE or SC suite with a spa pass and you’re all set for a lot less.
  8. Platinum plus here and this makes me never want to book an overseas cruise with NCL. I also plan on getting insurance that covers all of this for future cruises. So sorry for everyone, this is being handled horribly by NCL IMO. Minimum 50% off fare and 2 nights hotel would be a start.
  9. Loved my forward balcony a few years ago on The Dawn. Great glacier view from Jewel a few years back as well.
  10. This is a discussion forum, not FAQ’s last time I checked. Personally I appreciate people trying to help even if they don’t know the exact answer. Anyway..... 🙂
  11. I do wish they’d go back to giving all guests in Haven suites the beverage package instead of just the first 2, it would be a nice perk for booking the suites outright as opposed to getting in via bid. My upcoming cruise on the Gem in May has almost all the suites unbooked and I don’t blame people, I mean what’s the point unless you just absolutely can’t do without the Haven and /or suite?
  12. Do not let it ruin your birthday. If you were comfortable paying the price from the start then make peace with it if you can’t get an upgrade or more on board credit. This happens with most non peak season cruises, they have sales to move inventory left. I think most cruisers have been through this, myself included. Just have a good vacation.
  13. If they aren’t doing this to cut staff but the room attendants get to bed an hour or so earlier, I’m all for it. Their days are long enough as it is.
