  1. I don’t know where you saw they had encountered 20 foot waves. They cancelled iceland to avoid the 20 ft waves (which ended up being closer to 30 ft waves, so a good call to cancel, for sure).
  2. I hope NCL does not give in to the demands for refunds. It would only encourage this type of behavior. ...and the β€œpoor, poor” people who had NO place to find food between 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. on one day. (Rolling my eyes big time at that comment) πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
  3. We went on Harmony Last November and are booked again for next month. I will probably do a live review again πŸ™‚ In the meantime, there are many tips and pictures from our cruise last year in my review below: Enjoy planning this new adventure!
  4. A suspect in the 1985 hijacking of TWA plane was arrested in Mykonos after disembarking a cruise ship. It does not mention the ship, but Costa Deliziosa and Norwegian Star were in port on Thursday. Makes you wonder how he got onto the ship in the first place without being arrested. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-greece-hijacking-suspect/greek-police-arrest-suspect-in-1985-twa-aircraft-hijacking-idUSKBN1W6092
  5. @tourismtessy Thank you for your kind words! If you are getting close to Elite on Princess, it may help to wait with the status match. πŸ™‚ Enjoy planning your adventures!
  6. I don’t know if they make you rent the bowling shoes. Maybe someone else will comment. πŸ™‚
  7. We were able to keep the same one for both weeks. πŸ™‚
  8. Yes, the $30 is for the lane, not per person. Also, I just saw a Facebook post that it is $25 for 30 minutes. So, this varies per sailing/per day too. One of the workers did tell me to do the zipline early in the week, as it goes up by a dollar or two later in the week.
  9. Yes, you can only get it at guest services. We are going to take ours on Meraviglia to see if we can re-use them... Not sure, since Seaside is printed on them and I don’t even know if Meraviglia uses the same system. πŸ™‚ They were $5 each, and we all agreed they are worth every penny. None of us like wearing a lanyard and it just makes carrying your β€œkey” around so much easier!
  10. @mitsugirly Bowling is $30 for 30 minutes and $45 for one hour for a lane. You pay an additional $2 per person for shoe rental. So, you pay to use the lane for a specific amount of time, regardless of the number of players. πŸ™‚
  11. Packages for 14 nights on Seaside (June 2020): For certain activities, you can purchase the fun pass in advance for some savings:
  12. Meraviglia Packages for December: (7- night cruise) I do recall people stating that the gratuity is charged per drink on the ship, not in advance like on RCL. We had the Easy package as part of our booking special and we never had to pay a gratuity.
  13. Thank you for reading along! I have always enjoyed your reviews and pictures too! Hope this helps you. Just go with a different mindset, knowing that MSC is similar in many ways, but unique in other ways... kind of European πŸ™‚ There are add on costs, for sure, but the price was cheaper than most of our prior cruises. So, the little bit extra for the zipline did not bother us at all! We still came out way ahead!
  14. Thank you for reading along! πŸ™‚ I do not remember anything like the wine blending, but it sounds interesting!
