  1. Thank you so much! I became even more excited to see the real video of the Excel suites after seeing the video you posted. I did not see that video on any search I did through Google. Yes, please do tag my screen name with future real videos you post. I love seeing the ship come to life! Thank you again, I truly appreciate it!🤗
  2. I wanted the aft suite but it was not available for the dates I booked. I will have to book another cruise to try for the Presidential Excel or the Excel aft. I like the perks offered plus the idea of having a hot tub on the private balcony with spacious cabins. Perfect for some private relaxation!
  3. That's the info I found that prompted me to book the Excel Corner Suite. 😁 I know it's probably too early, but when I came across the other post that showed the video I thought maybe an Excel suite video might have been made or more pictures to show every area instead of just the renderings posted on the website. I'm patient though! So if you do come across any other info please tag me so I can check it out! Thank you for taking the time to respond and link to the site! I do like all that is offered with the Excel suites and I'm looking forward to utilizing Loft 19 for sure! You'll get there before I will! I'm not going until June 2021.
  4. Do you happen to know if there's a video like the one you linked to, to see what the Excel Corner Suites look like? I searched but only found the renderings posted on Carnival. 😊
  5. Perfect! Thank you so much! I tried searching myself but did not think to use "deployment" in the search.
  6. Hello, I'm wondering if anyone might have an idea of when the cruiselines will start opening bookings for summer of 2022? I've seen some itineraries date as far out as April, 2022 but wondered how far in advance do they usually roll out the summer itineraries? Around 24-26 months ahead? We are looking into European/Mediterranean, Polynesian/ Tahitian/South Pacific, or similar for June, 2022. Thank you for any feedback!
  7. Maybe take a screenshot of the $20 off deal. When you get on the ship, all 3 of you go to the spa and expect to get in since all 3 of you are booked in one spa cabin. If they give you issues, ask them where it stipulates the 3rd person isn't entitled to the spa. If they show you, then tell them you didn't know since you didn't see it stipulated on your paperwork, and ask them if they'll honor the $20 discount due to that fact. Worse case scenario you pay $20 more, but I think the 3rd person will be included. Just be prepared for the worst case scenario and plan for the best. Have a great time!
  8. That's what I found too and the picture, but I couldn't see what cabin determined receiving the 4th berth. I'm hoping for the best. The TA said it sleeps 4, but she couldn't see how the 4th would be set up. Thank you for the help!🤞😊
  9. We booked cabins on Encore for Mid-ship Mini-Suite with balcony, deck 15 for 4 people each cabin. I can't tell if the attached picture is the potential layout for this kind of cabin. Cabin code: MA + We need the bed configuration shown as the queen bed will be for the adults, but need two other beds that are separated for age and sex differences. Don't want opposite sex friends sleeping in the same bed. Does the (+) indicate 4 beds? I can't tell if there's a pull down bed above the couch in the sister ship of the Encore. One cabin we booked was MA-15168+ on the Encore. If anyone knows please advise if this layout isn't the case for this specific cabin, then what cabins would have this set up? I'd appreciate the help as rebooking may be in order.
  10. I'm thrilled to know those are included on that list. We like Teppanyaki on land so that would be fun to experience on a cruise. Thank you!😊
  11. Interesting. In our documents it is worded rather oddly. It states "one main course included per person." Does "main course" have a different interpretation than on land? We go to a restaurant and you can order appetizers, main course options, and desserts. But one can order just the "main course" if that's all they desired. It would appear more as a 3 course meal if you have all 3 included. But if they are specifically only talking about those 2 restaurants then that makes sense what you said. Since they didn't mention any other options that is what is confusing. My documents also stated it "includes one main course at Cagney's and Le Bistro." Being new to NCL, I would not know other options are available because of the way they stipulated it. If they stated something like " we have "this many" specialty dining options, but if you choose to eat at Cagney's or Le Bistro, only the main course is included and additional items will have an upcharge" then it would imply that one has options. But the way that it is stipulated appears as if it's only those 2 dining places with only the main course included. I'm happy to read that it is not that way, as I rather you be right and have more options. Just confusing to a newcomer to NCL and not knowing how it all works. Thanks for the clarification!😊
