Wow, you really are
spoiled! LOL! But, I do understand exactly where you're coming from. To many, accommodations are low on the priority list - not to me.
We just did our first cruise in October (Carnival Miracle) in a deluxe balcony. Funny, we never seemed to get in each other's way in the cabin, but we do at home -
. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of the cruise - food was great, shows were wonderful, cd was hilarious, ship was 7 months old and immaculately clean. We don't do the hairy chest contests and never hung on the Lido deck for more than 10 minutes or so. We spent quite a bit of time in the cabin - room service breakfast every day, coffee on the balcony, afternoon naps, late evening tv and just to get some quiet time on the balcony. We got used to the fact that 2 people couldn't be in the bathroom simultaneously, and it worked out great. So, although DH is very easy to please, he should be ecstatic over the AD on the Spirit. Concierge and
butler....he'll be pleased.
Besides the cabin issue, how did you like the Dawn
? We were docked next to her in Nassau and shared a shuttle with 3 pax and they loved it.
One thing that does surprise me about NCL is the size of the tv in most cabins, a miniscule 10", I believe, and it's not
interactive. On the Miracle, we booked an excursion, checked our balance every day, etc. etc. I can't imagine having to wait in line to check your balance. Just seems very un
-state of the art. Maybe that, too, will change with the refurbishment.
Well, if you're ever feeling spoiled enough to book the Dawn
or the Jewel Garden Villa, just let me know and we'll gladly share it with you! Now, that
would definitely spoil me
