Thank you..were you inside cabin paying 666 times 2 or was it the whole fee??
How did you enjoy the Star??..thanks..Sarah
Love the several restaurant idea...sometimes I love a group table..sometimes I really enjoy my own thinking and pondering..I think they have teakettles in their cabins..that sounds nice,,,,Sarah
That was the total fee including the 200% solo rate. The price dropped $299 pp a few weeks before the cruise making paying the solo rate affordable.
Just got off this cruise last week and had a blast. Every solo cruise that I take seems to surpass the previous one. This was the first time on the NCL Star and she is beautiful and has a very happy crew.
I went to the Meet and Greet and met some wonderful people. I hooked up with a couple that I had met on my last years cruise. This allowed me to share a couple of excursions in Costa Maya and Cozumel with them.
I can be a shy person in certain environments but go out of my way to talk to the crew and start up conversations with people on the upper decks and in the restaurants. For me, I really enjoy talking to the crew and finding out a little about their lives.
Also, our ship had over 80 British people who got on the ship in Cozumel and then returned back there a week later. They were doing a combined land/cruise tour. It was kinda of fun hearing the British accents again since I have been in the USA over 25 years so don't meet many fellow Brits.
Below are some of the videos I took with my new Sony HX20V camera.
Will be back on the boat in april, this time getting my sister and brother-in-law, from Scotland, introduced to cruising.
