  1. To be honest, the only reason we paid for the specialty dining was to have lobster. Now I'm not sure it's even worth it. I can pay alot less while in port if you consider the upcharges. Nothing on these new menus seems that spectacular compared with the MDR to justify. Thoughts?
  2. If I win a spa balcony upgrade, will they refund the week long Thermal passes I bought?
  3. Hi everyone, Sorry, I should have researched further to see the list of banned items before asking. The reason I ask, is because I'm having a hard time justifying having to pay extra (almost $500 for the two of us) to upgrade to the premium plus beverage package, just so that we can have Latte's. I just had a thought that if I brought my own Nespresso and Frother I could avoid having to pay for a-la-carte latte's. We usually cruise celebrity so the fact that the included beverage package with the promo doesn't include water or coffee is just kind of irritating and I was hoping for a work around.
  4. Anyone know if I can bring my own Nespresso machine and milk Frother?
  5. Trying to decide about making a reservation for specialty restaurant on NYE versus eating in MDR. Does anyone know if there are special menus in either the MDR or specialty restaurants that evening?
  6. The only NCL cruise we've ever done is the Getaway. We normally cruise with Celebrity but I have a credit that I have to use before the end of the year with NCL. First time going on a cruise without our kids. Yay!!! We prefer an inside cabin because well, we are on a budget and like to apply the money to spa passes instead of the room category. Cleanliness and good food would be our other priorities. Ports of call really don't matter to us. We love spending time in the Thermal Suite, as a couple using the Sauna, Steam Rooms, and Heated Loungers. We spend a few hours there every day. It would be important to us to be together and I couldn't tell for sure if some of the therapy rooms are all co-ed. The only thing that we did not like about the Getaway thermal suite was that the waterfall on the therapy pool was very loud and located directly behind the heated loungers. For us, it affected the quiet, serenity that we like while reading or relaxing on the loungers. I'm having a hard time finding pictures of the different ships with the layout of the thermal suite to see if they are set up like the Getaway. For the Dawn ship, I've read a few reviews that said sometimes the loungers are not working, so that would also be a consideration. This is the pricing for the NYE cruise, all including the specialty dining offer: Dawn 2157 Escape 2638 Breakaway 2683 Encore 3445 Can you help me choose the right ship based around our needs and the price value?
  7. We leave on Sunday on the Edge with our 10 and 12 year olds. We booked a long time ago and were disappointed that the final reveal didn't include a basketball court or any area for them to burn off some energy. I'm hoping because it is Spring Break they will have a little more activities than what OP described.
  8. Bumping this hoping to get a reply. Sail in one week!
  9. Hi, Wondering if my DH has a premium non-alcoholic package if he'll be allowed to get some of the fancy cocktails with no alcohol? Specifically looking at some drinks on the Eden like the Elderflower Bush and Blackberry Mojito. TIA
  10. If a lot of the activities, for instance digital scavenger hunt for the kids, require a device, what if you don't pay for wifi? My kids only have tablets and they don't have data. Is it all thru the app or how do you partcipate in digital activities? For the most part we are usually unplugged for our cruises so not sure how I feel about this.
  11. I realize the Edge hasn't sailed when school is out but in preparation for our spring break cruise I was hoping to take a look at the Fun Factory schedule. I thought some of it used to be in the regular dailies but I'm not seeing any mention of youth activities in them?
  12. The 2 and 3 day showed available on my 7 day cruise in March but when I tried to add it to the cart it was unavailable. I'm not sure if it's really sold out or maybe a glitch.
