  1. This was a year ago, but I could purchase FCDs on-board for immediate family members when I was making a future cruise booking for ourselves plus them in a separate cabin.
  2. Can't hurt to call but don't expect to be given an exception to the rule.
  3. Clarifying my response above: Only the premium plan is available to purchase before boarding with about a 20% discount and paid for by credit card, not on-board credit.
  4. Can only buy the premium plan before the cruise and paid for by credit card, not on-board credit.
  5. I generally try to book the Neptune under the Canaletto--usually very quiet.
  6. Yes, whenever we have promo SBP package, we always max out on the bonus days.
  7. We have that promotion, and the 10% off select shore excursions shows up on the various shore excursion pages associated with your booking. Log in, go to already booked, manage your booking, select your booking if you have more than one booking, and shore excursions to see which shore excursions are 10% off and what the new price is. It will be printed in orange.
  8. This is the one we have used--https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TQEX8BO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. We can each only speak to our own feelings, but I would be overjoyed to have them back on the same/home continent even if quarantined.
  10. And the pre-purchase Premium with the discount is often close in price to the on-board Surf package.
  11. Christmas 2018 we did a tour/airport transfer excursion in FLL that was great. Included a drive, ride on a boat, and then a walking tour of some highlights of Ft. Lauderdale. Our luggage went on the bus with us and we were dropped at the airport at the end. We signed up for it onboard the ship.
  12. I'm not sure how to link to an earlier topic so I suggest you go the search box above, type in the word internet, search in this forum, and the second result will give you lots of information with recent changes, as well as cost. I am cutting and pasting from that topic titled something like "Now up to four devices!!"-- (Ha, I figured out how to attach the link! Just click on the box above where it says Internet plans: now with up to four devices!)
  13. We did okay on refaring for Alaska this fall. The fare went down by $1200 pp and the value of the promos lost equals the value of the the promos gained so I'm happy. Now to check on the next spring's Panama Canal cruise. Did have to switch from the $1 deposits to using FCDs but they were going to expire next year anyway. (Nope, not a better deal for Panama next year)
  14. Not sure how many kids would have fun in the retreat cabanas with no pool or splash pad, etc. Remember the cabanas are limited in the number of people who may occupy them, four for the larger ones, two for the smaller ones. Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with one well-behaved kid sitting with mom or dad, but I wouldn't be happy if it became a playground area. Per the pricing sheet, it does state "Cabana Club/Retreat Cabanas for two adults with two loungers" and for the Family cabanas "for four adults with four loungers" although I don't remember seeing four loungers in the family cabanas on the NS. I don't see anything printed that says "No children permitted." We were on the NS last Christmas and the two person cabanas had space for two loungers and a small table between the lounges. They are not big. We had a total of four adults sharing two adjacent cabanas and it was perfect for us readers and nappers. Already bought one for a Panama cruise 18 months out. There are a few dining tables in the retreat area but eating in the cabana means having the plates on your lap.
