  1. I just got off the phone with MSC and was told it was $36 per person ONE WAY from Manhattan Cruise port to JFK. We will either Uber or private sedan instead...a better deal for us.
  2. GRLOBC is usually from a filed complaint/compliment email. They call it a "Welcome Aboard" amenity, but shows up as GRLOBC on the amenity page.
  3. GRLOBC is Guest Relations On Board Credit 😊

  5. Jonathan Castro was on the Joy in June. Not sure that is the Jonathan you are looking for?
  6. There are free shuttles from the AJ Dock and they are located on the left hand side right after you go up the ramp getting off the ship. They run every 15 minutes or so, but there were always 2 or 3 lined up waiting to load. Shuttles are just to the right of the front of the ship in this photo. The drop off in town is at the Mt. Roberts Tramway. Same place for pick up. All the shops and restaurants are within a 5 minute walk of the dropoff.
  7. Following along! Are you feeling spoiled yet? I think I have gained 10 lbs just looking at your food photos 😁 Would love to see more photos of your Royal Suite please!!! Will you be going down the slides with the kids? Have a wonderful cruise...tell your DW hello.
  8. Same on the Joy...deck 17 has the larger balconies. The extra 5 feet is not covered, so we could look up to see our neighbors on deck 18 😊
  9. Thanks for that info. Switched from forward 15009 to deck 16 today...still have to change cabins on this B2B, but that's ok, as you said, we are in the YC!!!!
  10. Leah, I see that you are looking at a 5 day cruise. Just so you know, the Cruise Next Certificates can only be used on 6 days or longer cruises. πŸ˜₯ From NCL: Cruise Reward, CruiseNext, and CruiseNext Haven are valid for sailings 6 nights or longer sailings. FWIW, my TA has been able to add 2 certs each for 2 of our last minute cruises. One was booked 6 days before sailing and the other was 11 days before sailing ☺️
  11. We had a 12 noon flight last week. We got off the ship at 9am...customs line was pretty long and took about 20 minutes...walked across the street to the Marriott and ordered an Uber ($33.00 total) who showed up in 2 minutes...at the airport by 10:10! Found the Alaska Airlines lounge and boarded the airplane at 11:30 😊 A few tips: *If you have checked luggage use the onboard Port Valet service. You will put your luggage out the last night of the cruise and will not see it again until you land at your home airport. Worked great! https://www.portseattle.org/page/port-valet-enjoy-seattle-luggage-free *If you do not want to use that or have only carry on luggage, the customs line has a seperate "Porter" line if you choose to use a porter for your luggage at the port. It seemed to move faster.
  12. Bon Voyage and have a wonderful cruise with your family! Since we have already done 5 cruises THIS year, October is the only other cruise booked for 2019 😊
  13. Yes! You are on the Seaside soon, right?
