  1. Please let me know 🙂 Dawns@optonline.net
  2. Thanks - so it appears that the T1 has the virtual window. It is not mentioned in the T8 description.
  3. Thanks - so they all have the virtual window (not just a one-ay view into the corridor which is weird to me?
  4. Does anyone know what the difference is btw these two categories? Price is the same.
  5. I’m interested. Email me at dawns@optonline.net
  6. unfortunately this doesn't always work. still fighting to add a missing cruise for my 21 year old.
  7. More than one employee on the POA this summer told us (without us asking) that the DSC does NOT go to them. Not sure if the POA is a different beast bc they also said that they get overtime and are paid minimum wage? Mostly an American crew. There was a lot of turnover before the cruise. One waiter said that he had been the Asst. on the last cruise and his "partner" abruptly quit and he was made waiter with no assistant for our cruise. A bartender said that his "partner" had also abruptly quit the week prior. Some seemed happy, some seemed overwhelmed with work. Definitely a different crew vibe than a typical ship.
  8. From NCL website: ARE ANY MENU ITEMS EXCLUDED FROM SPECIALTY DINING PACKAGES? All Specialty Restaurant menu items are included except Seafood Platter in Raw Bar. Additional entrée charges may apply. https://www.ncl.com/specialty-dining-package/faq
  9. we used civitavecchia shuttle in July and will use them again in May. Shared to/from port and not shared from airport. Reliable and could use PayPal beforehand.
  10. Recently paid to upgrade from Inside to Outside AFTER final payment. Got new perks. Two weeks later, mini suite dropped to lower than outside and NCL gave a free upgrade into MS. Again, AFTER final payment.
  11. We will be on that same cruise and didn't book the spa this cruise b/c of the price. I thinker's getting out of hand. Last cruise it was more crowded than ever - and I saw many people with their cruise cards (meaning that they hadn't check in and maybe didn't even have passes). People were reserving two chairs each - one heated and one not. Became more of a hassle than it was worth at a lower price.
  12. and how much did it cost? Thx!
  13. Happened to me on the POA this summer - booked on board - no discount. I think they hope that you won't notice.
  14. It looks like NCL is now offering a perk if you don't use the air on some sailings. Maybe they read this post?
  15. Are these new T & C? The link in this thread didn't work so I Googled. Seems now charge for extra entrees in all but still no limits on sides:: Specialty Dining Packages (SDP) are available online for pre-sale or onboard during the first two days of the voyage. SDP is not available on 1 and 2-day sailings; On 3-day sailings SDP is for sale on day 1 only. No refunds available if not all meals are used. SDPs are personal and non-transferable. SDP does not include any beverages and additional main courses will incur charges. An SDP meal in Food Republic, Pincho, Sushi and Wasabi includes 4 menu items. A 20% gratuity and specialty service charge will be added to the package price. No SDP kids pricing available. We encourage guests to visit ncl.com/myncl to make dining reservations in advance. Reservations are not required but highly recommended for SDP guests, however, once onboard, reservations will be subject to availability. SDP meals can be enjoyed at American Diner, Cagney’s Steakhouse, Food Republic, Italian, Le Bistro, Los Lobos, Margaritaville at Sea, Moderno Churrascaria, Ocean Blue and Bayamo by Ocean Blue, Pincho Tapas Bar, Q Texas Smokehouse, Raw Bar, Sushi and Teppanyaki.
