  1. This is my first sailing on NCL. We received the Premium Plus upgrade as one of the free upgrades. Does this include shots or just drinks by the glass? I like to have my margaritas with a shot of Grand Marnier floating on top. Will this be extra or included? Thanks!!
  2. We are frequent cruisers but this is our first cruise on Norwegian. I have a few questions and would love any suggestions you have. We are sailing on the Sun on July 8. It is my husband, my 19 year old and myself. Are there any activities available specifically for ages 18-20? Some cruiselines have get togethers for this age group since they are too old for the teen club but not 21 yet. Also, I want to try the Steakhouse on board. Has anyone eaten there and what did you think? Also, what other restaurants do you recommend? It is a 4 night cruise so we can't try them all. Any other recommendations are welcome. Thank you!!
  3. Last time I went, you couldn't use the drink package on HMC. Hopefully that has changed by now.
  4. I've never sailed on the Horizon but my husband and I sailed on the Magic and loved it! The layout was very good. We sailed to Amber Cove and Grand Turk and I would go back again since it rained while we were in Amber Cove.
  5. Our cruise on the Sunshine dropped $70 and our TA got us the difference in on board credit since we'd already paid in full. She did it all.
  6. Not always. Agencies are able to hold blocks of room and offer them at a discounted rate. If they don't sell they are released back into inventory.
  7. It can depend on the promotion you are booked under. This is the same for booking direct as well as booking with a TA. My TA would always tell me if I'd be losing something if I called with a lower price.
  8. That would certainly discourage me from using a TA. Just curious...was it a Carnival TA from their phone #? I always wondered if they have the time to give personal service like that with all the customers they talk to. Luckily all TA's are not the same. It was always easier and less time consuming for me to let my TA do all the work. I didn't have the time to watch the prices all day.
  9. Or you can book with a travel agent who can watch the rates for you. DM for info
  10. We were on the Miracle in October last year and it was outside.
  11. Hey! We were on this ship the week before you. Beautiful ship. Will definitely sail her again.
  12. Serenity Punchliner Comedy Club Love & Marriage Show
  13. Thanks for the info! We saw "88 Keys" on the Magic but have not seen the others. Do you remember any live music in any of the venues?
  14. What a disappointment! We cruised last summer on the Magic and there was live entertainment around the ship and the shows were very good. We spent several nights at the Alchemy Bar listening to the live music playing there. Red Frog Pub had live music also.
  15. Hi! We are cruising on the Miracle in 13 days!!! Can anyone tell me what the Playlist Shows are on this sailing? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it isn't one of the shows we've seen before. Thanks!!
  16. 28 days and counting until the Miracle on October 21!!!
  17. I buy gift cards through AARP. They have a 10% discount. Then I apply the cards to my sign and sail account once I get onboard. For my next cruise (7 nights) I will have $500 on my sign and sail card from the gift cards. That is pretty close to AI for us. And we can use it for anything from bars to photos to excursions.
  18. Does this hotel have shuttle transfer to and from the port?
