  1. We prefer the Indy, with her two cruises over the Adventure's Dec 7 cruise as it felt more crowded, also must use the lower decks for the FWD elevators, only the Port side elev for Deck 14. Enjoyed the Ice show on Indy much better. Only two Ice shows scheduled the same day on the 8 day. No reservations for any entertainment. The line for the 8 PM last show had a horrendous long line an hour before show time and building. People jumping the line from all sides as the doors opened. We enjoyed the Indy's ice show more. BTW we sat in an upper side row with some obstruction from a pole in front. A lady arrived and sat down saving a seat a next to us, I noticed she was on a large cell phone and then it clicked as she was talking to the Captain on a ships phone, who then sat next to us. Impressed that no seat was saved in a prime location,or a special seat assigned like Key and Suite. Just my 2 cents.
  2. I'm thinking about all the servers in the buffet picking up glasses and plates and then serving you a drink. Same for the bartenders, have witnessed some using hands to pick up fruit for the drinks or not using a scoop for ice Have experienced Noro this fall on a prior cruise line.It can start within 12 hours after boarding and that's exactly what happened, for 5 days and i'm a germ a phobia. Thank G-d we disembarked from the Oct 27 NCL Joy canal cruise as her next cruise is when Noro all started.
  3. Forgot my phone at home , good thing we had printed the docs as a back up boarding the Symphony. Being upper tier, I was able to use the ships phone to make calls, no charge.
  4. Price drops on the Joy. After asking for an upgrade or ,OBC I received a cabin upgrade. There is still a difference of $278 in which I asked for in OBC and was told I already got an upgrade. Last cruise with NCL. Was looking forward to book the Encore.
  5. The Casino may still punch your cards. On board the Adventure's Southern cruise this Dec.
  6. Is Halloween night celebrated on board? Do cruisers dress up? Will be aboard the Joy. Last year on the Allure there was a parade on the promenade deck with about 1000 cruisers in costumes even in the DR. Ship was well decorated and a venue was turned into a scary fun house.
  7. Does NCL allow you to bring aboard wine to drink in the cabin area or DR?
  8. Thinking of doing early walk off. Cabin is in the same area on deck 8 fdw. Would you no what time the MDR opens for breakfast for embarkation, and which deck? Also would you advise us to leave the luggage in the cabin and go to MDR or take with us to MDR. Thanks in advance.
  9. Was there any noise issues with the outer door and the cabin being along side the passage way walk or other noise issues for cabin location?
  10. Was there any noise issue with the outer door or the cabin along side the passage walk way? Thanks in advance.
  11. Did you experiance any noise from the outer hallway door, passage wayl or any other noise ? Would you reccomend the next I/S cat which is only $20 more per cabin? Also Fwd, Mid location? Thanks in advance.
  12. My NCL final payment due this week also for October. NCL, cruises over 7 days final is due 120 days out,90 days for 7 days.
  13. New Panama Canal partial transit shore excursions. Would like suggestions on tours for the canal. NCL does not show many for Panama, P Limon, or Cartagena. Thanks in advance.
  14. Our passport is due for renewal in 8 weeks. Not cruising until late Sept. If we renew before or after the due date, will the new passport have an earlier, or later renewal date or the original renewal date?
  15. Will she pass thru the old or the new canal? Complementing on booking her, enjoyed the Bliss.
