I'd love to see a big-ship cruise that cobbled all those little "oddball" ports together: St. John's, Corner Brook, Gloucester, Rockland, Martha's Vineyard, Salem and Newport (well, lots of cruises...

Yes. Exactly this. Anyplace cold is fine with me. And I'll throw in a Voyage of the Vikings roundtrip passage, since money and time is no object. Even so, I can't imagine being away from home for...

In my experience, absolutely. I've only sailed NCL in a suite category once, have only eaten in a specialty restaurant once, when it was free. I've always received excellent service, and have eaten...

Thank you. I was thinking that might be an option if the MDR food wasn't appealing and the Lido had closed down. Guess not.

A card deck sized first aid kit, and a tiny flashlight. I like the idea of a small sewing kit. I've seen them in my supermarket, and will try to remember to buy one.

CrewNews' menus included Lido "Late Night" snacks. What is HAL's definition of late night?

I'm not especially fussed about the increased service charges, or the move to a' la carte specialty dining (which I kind of like), but the timing of these changes makes it seem as if NCL is making...

I'd have to see the itinerary, but I'd like to take a closer look at the round trip South American itinerary. I wouldn't want to do it over the December/January holidays, and it'll probably be too...

I think so, too, but a lot of folks disagree with us. Personally, that sort of thing is lost on someone like me. The way things are going, I'm happy we all still have options.

To answer the original question, yes. Or at least NCL had a carry-on storage area a few years ago. On the Jewel, it was in one of the bars, and worked exactly like a coat check. It wasn't what I...

They're not perqs; they're "promotions." Most of the "promotions" currently on offer don't interest me, either. The few I'd actually use (laundry, internet time, soda package) could easily be offered...

Good bagels, for cruises sailing out of New York. Emphasizing GOOD bagels, not bread with holes.

Only NCL ships with studio cabins have a studio lounge (currently Epic, Breakaway and Getaway). Solo lounge is a slight misnomer, though typically solo cruisers book studio cabins.
