  1. Two memorable moments from our first AZ cruise - Malaga to Rio 2013 for our 50th anniversary. 1: Just before noon Captain Carl announced that the officers would be shooting our position at noon and we were invited to Deck 11 to observe. When we arrived to officers were shooting the sun with sextants and Captain Carl was explaining Celestial Navigation on the superstructure with a piece of chalk. When the officers confirmed their readings Captain Carl said "Now we will call the bridge to see how far out the GPS is today." We were within two miles of the GPS. 2: The day after we left Cape Verde on the African coast and started our crossing Captain Carl announced that it would be a great night for star gazing. Again we were invited to Deck 11 at 2100. When we go there we looked up and saw stars but nothing really spectacular. Then Captain Carl called the bridge and told them to douse all the exterior lights. It was like being in a planetarium, Captain Carl proceeded to point out and explain 12 of the 14 stars in that quadrant used for navigation. This he did with a long laser pointer. Truly unforgettable! We are booked from Seward, Alaska to Tokyo, Japan in August and hope that we have similar wonderful experiences with Captain Jose.
  2. NCL have I troducedithe Unlimited Open Bar which replaces the Ultimate Beverage Package. I asked NCL today what the difference was only to be told that there was no difference. Thr definition of "unlimited" is no limitations. This would imply that that any thing is available including top shelf liquors and best wines from the wine cellers. Obviously this is not the case. I would suggest that the marketing department of NCL go back to grade school and review the meaning of unlimited.
