  1. I would obtain some form of medical documentation that alcohol would be detrimental to health. Then I would call the NCL accommodations branch and ask for a medical accommodation of my documented condition. I further think that asking on Cruise Critic is pretty much a waste of time.
  2. Wow. I loved my trip on the Escape in January from New York to the Caribbean. I think we were on two different ships. Most of the passengers I met (I was solo in a studio cabin) were experienced world travelers.
  3. The TV channel on the ship with the CruiseNext supervisor endlessly replays his or her pitch and very clearly includes all the restrictions on the use of certificates.
  4. In my experience, only one of the MDRs is open for lunch on embarkation day.
  5. ...and many should be booked when first listed.
  6. Bridge players (and would-be bridge players) should bear in mind that, on transatlantic crossings, NCL provides a bridge host who conducts separate beginner and intermediate lessons and directs a game each sea day. In my experience, games attract about 50-75 players on the larger ships. A great (and free) way to pass the time. Moreover, I have enjoyed forming bridge partnerships with other passengers.
  7. Which, on the majority of cruises, they never do.
  8. Wise decision -- if you want a balcony, book a balcony
  9. We would all like to be able to upgrade at will close-in to the cruise with no cancellation charge.
  10. A cup of soda at an NCL bar costs $4+ with gratuity.
  11. The date of final payment and the amount due are shown in your online My NCL account (under Vacation Summary) from the moment you make your initial cruise reservation.
  12. Last year on the Escape out of New York, I boarded with the Platinum Latitudes group while many Haven passengers remained glumly waiting for their butler/escort in the reserved Haven area of the port.
  13. Seems like it would be more productive to ask NCL than to start a thread here.
