  1. Long live class cruising. I shouldn’t have to mix with the riff raff and lower lifes if I am cruising in the Haven. They should be kept well away....less chance of getting sick also is a bonus. 👍
  2. The OP is looking to book a suite, which would include all perks anyway. So debating wether or not to choose the drink package is a moot point.
  3. If the Maldives and Seychelles are on your bucket list, you won’t get anywhere near the best experience seeing them for a day on a cruise ship. With regards to Male, it’s not that nice or exciting and it’s the islands and atolls that make the Maldives what it is.
  4. Thanks, looking at April/May so you would think they should open soon then...
  5. When can we expect to see 2020 cruises for Cuba open up?
  6. Bliss one and done. Just too many people.....everything overly crowded.
  7. For an upcoming cruise on the Pearl, we didn’t get the Free at See promotion, however not because we chose the Sail Away rate, rather we got 50% off the second passenger. So while we didn’t get the perks this time, we still saved over $2000 so I can live with buying my drinks on a 14 day port intensive cruise. And we still get to pick our cabin...
  8. I was gifted VIP status once.... Back in 2005 when I had completed my first NCL cruise, I was so impressed that i emailed the CEO at the time....Colin Veitch....to tell him so. Amazingly he replied and aware that I had another cruise booked for the following year on the Spirit, unbeknown to me listed me as VIP. Booked in an OV so no upgrade in cabin, however did get snacks delivered everyday by a Butler and got invited to certain events etc. When I quizzed at the time why I was getting the special treatment....was simply told that I had been listed as a VIP.
  9. Being charged the extra is hit and miss, just got off the Jewel and was not charged the extra when using our Paltinum vouchers.
  10. Had a first for me today. Just got off a 16 night cruise on the Jewel and when scanning my cruise card to leave the ship it came up as “flagged” and I needed to proceed to a pop up guest services desk near the gangway. Seems I had a refundable credit applied to my account (which I don’t know what for). End result was that because my account was $0 (also a first)....NCL actually paid me the sum of $75USD in cash when I got off. Winning!
  11. Apparently it started around a week into the cruise, crew taken off regular duties and reassigned to deep cleaning and sanitising affected rooms. Our room was cleaned twice by this team and all linen etc was removed and bagged. If there has been evidence on recent cruises of Norovirus, then clearly something is up.
  12. Currently on the Jewel and safe to say there is something of a norovirus outbreak right now. Seems to be all most people are talking about, a number of repeated announcements about sanitation practices. My wife was struck down yesterday and now in quarantine. Hard to get a read read on the numbers but suspect it’s a reasonable amount. Crew trying to get it under control, if it gets worse I suspect they will move to more stringent measures. Medical staff nothing short of fantastic I must say, support has been first rate.

  14. That’s simply not true, some ships might have them but I can tell you that I am currently on the Jewel and they don’t have straws of any kind, and they don’t know when they will be getting any paper straws. If straws are important then suggest bring your own.
  15. I am now around 36 hours out from my cruise and still no notification if my bid was successful or unsuccessful. Is this normal?
