  1. I just called twice tonight and got through within 10 minutes. Still haven't decided on re-booking. Waiting on the refund to hit first.
  2. I haven't recieved a letter or email. We are still going on or cruise April 19th out of Tampa on Carnival. Any idea when the email or small mail letter will be going out? I don't see the $200 obc on my booking either yet. Just curious.
  3. When we went on our cruise in mid-February, when the virus was first being spoken about (that I knew of), I took my own purell hand sanitizer and also Clorox disinfecting wipes as well.
  4. I just wanted to let everyone know that, those who like to take magnetic hooks to hang additional stuff up, the walls are not magnetic, nor is the stateroom door. Only the ceiling is and the bathroom door. We like to hang additional hooks for hats, mini-shoe bag storage thingy's, etc, but could only use the ceiling. Just a heads up for everyone.
  5. I booked the Steakhouse for Carnival Sunrise we're going on tomorrow and had to prepay to complete my order. I did this a few days ago, for Valentine's Day night for 4 of us. Surprised I was able to reserve for that night at all. Yay!
  6. I am actually going on Sunrise next week and just booked the Steakhouse Restaurant for Valentine's Day evening. Surprised I was able to book something with a week out, but thankful I could. I'll let you know how it is. I do know that you can order an upcharge steak in the MDR but like another has said, I'd rather pay for an actual restaurant.
  7. We do the same thing. All dirty clothes that don't make it to laundry (platinum on Carnival at least) go in 1 luggage bag.
  8. We bring our own plastic straws, but we also have our own metal straws too. The paper ones are so stupid to use, since they just wilt and you end up drinking wet pieces of straw paper. Ick!
  9. I get the bucket of beer too and save them in the room for when I'm getting ready or relaxing on the balcony. I get all 4 to myself 😁
  10. Hi everyone! We're looking at excursions to do, however none are jumping out at us that are booked directly with Carnival. I don't feel comfortable finding excursions on our own. We have been to Belize twice now, maybe 3 times; the first time we got off and walked around, the 2nd time we got off, tried finding someone that was recommended, but never could find them, and the vendors at the port were very pushy and I felt uncomfortable so we got back on the ship. Has anyone booked excursions on their own in Belize? Do you feel safe going outside of the ships excursions? Any recommendations?
  11. In doing a little research, NCL is not carrying Truly Hard Seltzer like Carnival is (yet at least). No big deal, but it's been my favorite drink here of late so I was hoping someone could chime in and answer.
  12. That makes sense, but if I make a reservation for 4, I am paying for 4, when it's only 3 people. Do you think they'll charge me for 4 people if I wait to get on the ship?
  13. We love Teppanyaki and Cagney's. I would probably say Teppanyaki is my favorite, but Cagney's is my husband's favorite. Come to find out though, you can only make a reservation for 2 or 4 people prior to sailing. I called them yesterday about our June cruise, and if you have 3 people, you have to wait until you're on the ship to make a reservation (and hope they're not sold out). This is something I don't understand. Makes no sense to me.
  14. I have been on NCL sky out of Miami before......and to answer your questions..... 1. Are the extra charge dining venues worth it? the rate can come with a dining package. is this every night? ---the extra charges are definitely worth it, especially for Teppanyaki 2. is it worth upgrading to the premium plus drink package when its open bar for everyone? ---we did not upgrade to the premium (at the time we went it was actually included in our booking, which was before they changed it from "UBP down to SDP" or whatever they call it now) 3. I've searched about flights thru NCL only to find conflicting information, do the flights leave the same day as embarkation? --- we have not chosen to use flights with NCL, we've always booked our own and in researching we've heard it can be a pain to deal with (not sure why though) I will say that although NCL charges gratuities on for the drink package and/or dining package (depending on what you get), for the price you pay, it is still cheaper (in our opinion since we do drink) doing this instead of paying for drinks on your own and the dinners. Hope this helps!
  15. Hi everyone! My husband and I just returned from an 8 day cruise out of San Juan on NCL Dawn. I hadn't heard this until the 2nd to last day, but that was her last sailing in San Juan before it was being moved. Not sure where she was being moved to though. It'll take me a little bit to get the review up and go through my pictures, however I do not have many pictures of around the boat, as we did not go to any shows, but we did go to 3 specialty restaurants and had the "3SD" and "PBP" marked on our card. If anyone has any questions or wants to know anything feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer.
