  1. yes, indeed. I booked an interior, because I couldn't justify the balcony at the time. But the price of the balcony now with paid gratuities would've been worth it. But the current price for the balcony NOW is a lot higher than the balcony was THEN.... oh well, I missed the boat on that.
  2. Oh never mind. The price of the balcony went up significantly with this deal. Paying the gratuities would be cheaper. LOL
  3. I booked our first NCL cruise 3 days ago. It was 2 for 1 deposit, had all the FAS promotions included. Then yesterday they had the same cruise with everything, with prepaid gratuities. Am I able to swap my booking to this new offer? Not sure how all this works with NCL. Thank you for any and all help
  4. I am not going to just act like I didn't see this amazingly ridiculous number. 17??!!?? WOW
  5. Thank you! We did the Med from Athens to Barcelona on the Carnival Vista. Memories that last a lifetime. I saw where NCL had those solo cabins. That is really cool of them. Can't wait to cruise again!
  6. PERFECT!! Thank you so much. We received al of the FAS promotions. Drinks, dinners, internet, and shore excursion discounts per port. I love Brazilian Steakhouses, that is for sure. I think the Ice Bar would be COOL.... pun intended.
  7. Greetings! I am new to NCL but not new to cruising. We have done 8 cruises, all on Carnival. Note: We love Carnival and it suits us just fine. We dress up for formal nights. We wear appropriate clothing in dining room at all other times. Yesterday, we booked a 7 day cruise out of New Orleans for our 10 year Anniversary in February 2022. I know it is a long way away, but the 2 for 1 deposit and all the FREE @ SEA offerings were too good to pass up. We will be on the Breakaway. Any tips, pointers, gee whizzes, or wisdom you can share with me about the ship and the experience is greatly appreciated. THANK YOU in Advance!!
  8. They will refund it to you in the same form of payment, which would be a NEW gift card. And these refunds also take upwards of 90 days to receive back to you. If we do not go in October, we will not go again until May 2021.
  9. I don't think I can do it. Now it is pushed out til at least September. I will hold onto my money and gift cards. I can always use THOSE on the May 2021 cruise for DD's graduation cruise. Only out the $198 deposit. But I will wait and see if THEY cancel first. Blegh
  10. I will ride it out until final payment, but I am not sinking anymore real money or gift cards into this cruise. May lose the deposit, but they haven't been the best at informing in a timely manner either. They'll wait up until the very end.
  11. THANK YOU everyone!! We only have CHEERS and Cruise Cash because they were discounted 10-15% off. Combined with getting the Carnival GCs off of Allstate for 12% off, we have been able to compund the savings.
  12. July 29th.... our final payment date. We have a good rate. $500 OBC to be used anywhere on the ship. Cheers package paid for. $200 cruise cash (bought discounted) Do we pay the $500-ish on 7/29/2020 for our October 12th cruise, or forgo the deposit of $198 total. I don't want to tie up money and gift cards if it comes down to a refund for months and months. But I do not want to lose out on a cruise either. Decisions, Decisions..... Any ideas or suggestions are sincerely appreciated. Thank you.
  13. Thank you ALL for your input and sharing your experiences with the refunds. I know they are making their way thru a unique time, just as all of us are, so I am trying to be understanding. I now have a better idea of what to expect should the situation arrive. Thank you all again!
  14. We have a cruise booked for OCT 2020. IF we decide to cancel our Cheers package, will the refund take the 30, 60, or 90 days to refund back to us like it is taking people receiving cruise vacation refunds or are these happening in a more timely manner? Thank you in advance!
