    I was just on the Prima, and the decks never worked on the app. It opened one deck and never showed another. I went to Guest Services and the IT guy, but they  couldn't help.

    I recall having the same issue, but somehow had click so the list of other decks appeared in the drop down menu, almost like a hidden thing you need to click. It was annoying and I didn't even figure out until towards the end of my last cruise. 

  2. I have the offer on my Blue Cash card, too bad I booked my cruise just a few weeks ago with payment in full.

    Will onboard charges count towards this? Or should I prepay my gratuities now? It will be about $700 between 4 cruisers... 


    For a past NCL offer, booking an excursions online did trigger the credit.

  3. Might be a bit late on replying to this, but we did this via ship excursion as we had limited hours in port. They did offer it as only half day and presumably slightly cheaper than a full day pass. Buffet lunch was included with the ship excursion, you only go through the line once though, no returning for seconds. 

    Can't comment on transport as it was included with the ship. Probably one of the few times the ship excursion has been worth it, their bus picked us up, and there was an Ocean World rep onboard who explained what things to do and kind of a recommended itinerary if you wanted to see the different shows they offered.

    That's for EACH gold member correct? So both my husband and I would each get a bottle of water? (It's been awhile since I was on Carnival and can't remember if we used that perk last time or not). 

    As gold, you get the bottle of water and an appreciation drink if the cruise is long enough, for each member. 


    I usually get my bottle from a bar so I know it's free and don't get inadvertently charged from the stateroom and I presume less work as the room steward won't have to restock it.

  5. For a Carnival cruise, I wouldn't worry about it. They have a lot dedicated to them.

    I actually took an NCL cruise (who doesn't normally port in Baltimore) and they opened an extra side lot (just a little further away from the terminal, but you drop off your bags from the car so no worries) to accommodate NCL passengers.

    Where are you seeing a 4 year expiration?

    The flyers onboard and at the CN desk. I'll see if I brought any of them back.


    When I asked the rep about it, they said it was still what Miami was telling them, told them I no longer had an expiration online and they just deflected.

  7. I haven't read all the pages of comments, but how old is this kid? Maybe he rather just be alone with his girlfriend rather than tagging along with his parents? The "terrorism concern" was just their polite way of dodging being stuck with the kid's parents on a ship for a week.

    it's definitely targeted. if you have ever used an amex card for an NCL charge, even if it was only a few dollars, you'll likely get the offer. they may also target the travel segment, so if you regularly use your amex card for airline tickets or hotels, or other cruise lines, you also might be targeted.

    Feel like it would be the other way around, to entice new customers. 

  9. As someone else mentioned, they look for the shortest married couple and the longest married couple. For the middle couple, it's sort of an audience pick. I think I've seen where it is just a kiss, but also where the couple has to do their best Tarzan impression which can get amusing. 

  10. Just booked the Sun out of Baltimore in December. I really like the ease of cruising out of Baltimore so this will be a new ship to me and all new ports! There are just limited options if you want to go out of Baltimore, the ships tend to be older as they need to be smaller to fit under the bridge.
