  1. I can't help you with the location of the cabin but as for the drink package you can have as many as you want. I always take the drink package as I love to drink when I cruise. Mind you I never really get drunk as the drinks are pretty weak but I do like to be able to order what I want without thinking about money. If you don't drink very much you might not want the drink package as you are paying the beverage service charge per day. That is a total of $217.80 for 11 days. Just a thought.
  2. I'm "Select" so it says that I should get a 25% discount. I guess I will call and see if the price they quoted me includes that discount. I do see on their website where it said if you pre-book you will get a 10% discount so does that mean I would get a total of 35%? Thank you for letting me know about the CC status thing as this is only my 2nd cruise on Celebrity as I usually sail RCCL or NCL.
  3. I received an email from Celebrity about purchasing an internet package. The one I'm interested in is the Surf package for 2 devices. It says prices starting from $174. My question is is that per person or per cabin? I'm assuming per cabin but just wanted to make sure as I have never bought the internet package before on Celebrity.
  4. I used the WhatsApp on my TA cruise from FL to Barcelona this past April. I did have the Wi-Fi package but loved using the app. I even got a phone call from a friend that was in Paris while I was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. My how things have changed (lol).
  5. So I am doing a 7 day cruise to Norway from Southampton next July and I'm seriously thinking that as long as I'm in Europe I should try to stay a little longer and mark off something on my bucket list. I am thinking about Scotland as I just watched Outlander and I'm reading the books (I know I'm late to the party). There are a lot of land tour companies out there and in the past I have been on three of them so I know what to expect. You might want to look at Gate 1 as they are very economical and they are always running specials.
  6. Yes you can use with the Social Media Package. I did this on my TA cruise in April and it was so cool. I texted and even talked to my friend that was touring Paris from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You can google on how this app works which is what I did as this was the first time I had used it.
  7. I went through this several months ago for a 15 day TA. I was in a balcony and the mini-suite was priced $600 less than what I paid for my balcony. Since this was after final payment I called my guy at NCL and asked about either moving me to a mini-suite or giving me OBC. He said he had to call his supervisor and when he got back to me he said that they would move me to the mini-suite for free but they would pick the cabin. I got to keep my perks and the cabin that I got was in a great location. I'm not understanding why they won't do anything for you but like several other posters have said you are at the mercy of your travel agent as NCL won't talk to you at all. This is one of the reasons I always use someone at the cruise line as I want to go to bat for myself and not relay on someone else.
  8. I always bring a couple of bags of trail mix along with popped popcorn and chips. I like to have these when I'm relaxing in my cabin. No one has ever said anything about it.
  9. Mine came in very handy this past May when my suitcase was over 50lbs. I just took out the heaviest packing cube and put it in my carry on so my suitcase now weighed less. I love my packing cubes and wouldn't travel without them.
  10. I didn't have any side effects at all. The patch uses all natural ingredients.
  11. That is the patch that I used. I bought it on Amazon and it was pretty cheap. I will always use this product whenever I know that I will be drinking a lot.
  12. I was on a 15 day TA in May and I have to say that I drank ALOT! I never really got drunk but I did notice that sitting on a bar stool all day does make your ankles swell. I have been on 25 cruises and this is the very first time I had an issue with my ankle (as it was only the right one). NCL doesn't cut you off as Carnival does after 15 drinks so that is a good thing at least for me on a TA. Also since I knew that I would be drinking more than usual I bought some hangover patches that seemed to work. You just put the patch on your arm a couple of hours before you drink and no hangover. I also made sure that I drank water before I went to bed and that I had coffee when I woke up. Thank goodness for the coffee maker in my mini suite as that thing saved my life.
  13. Same thing happened to me on The Epic for my 15 day TA. I noticed that the mini suite was cheaper than what I paid for my balcony so they upgraded me for free to a gty mini suite. I didn't like the idea of them assigning the cabin to me but I knew that the mini suites were in good locations on the ship. Turns out that it was a fantastic location and it was a great cabin.
  14. You can't bid if you are in a studio cabin. That is another reason not to book one if you think you would want a bigger cabin.
