  1. This was really helpful, especially with the pictures. Thank you for posting! Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to see Antigua in April 2021.
  2. @SNJCruiser, I believe you're referring to Sheridan's? You're right -- I think you might be able to buy it in Canada, but I'm pretty sure it's not available in the US as a rule.
  3. I would say it depends on your interests. I've cruised out of Vancouver, but haven't stayed there (yet), but live on the East side of the Cascades in Washington state, and have family in Seattle. In my opinion, Seattle is great for exploring locales, wine, and is probably the more cost-effective flight destination. Of course, you can also land in Seattle, tour a day or two, take the train up to Vancouver, cruise, tour Vancouver/Victoria, and take the ferry back to Seattle (from Victoria).
  4. Next booked = NCL Encore (Reposition East-West Panama Canal) 4/10/21 Next one I think will sail = I sure hope Encore goes; it should, since it's the Respositioning to set it up for the Alaska season. Also have a B2B (our first!) for the 5-night Pacific Coastal after it, so we'll be going Miami-LA-Vancouver, for a total of 21 days (hopefully!) Devastated if doesn't sail = Like many others who have posted, I won't be devastated; just disappointed, and immediately working on scheduling another! Also have Jewel TA (31 August 21, Copenhagen-Boston via Iceland and Canada), and then Ovation TP (April 22, Sydney-Honolulu) L&S from the May 21 TP
  5. Thanks for the link, @jeremyosborne81. I didn't realize that cruisedeckplans had the walk throughs! I did learn (by watching one of the videos of the inside cabins) that the lights above the bed(s) have USB ports as well, and that there's a little shelf above the headboard area of the bed to store small items.
  6. I originally posted this in the Cabin Selection Tips forum, and received one reply -- which was (well-founded) advice to move it to the Norwegian forum, as there's "more traffic there." True statement! I've searched through the different forum topics and discussions, and have found few posts about specific Inside cabins. We've been in Oceanview, Balcony, and (Junior) Suites (on other cruise lines, but never (until, hopefully, next year) in an Inside. This will also be our first time on NCL. I picked 9603 because it's all the way aft, one deck up from the Waterfront, and relatively near stairs/elevators. I believe it's in the same location on the Encore's sister ships. I searched through the Cabin reviews, but they all result in a "Page Not Found" error. At this point, I'd love to hear any reviews on a Breakaway or Breakaway Plus class Inside cabin. Anyone?
  7. Thanks to all who replied! This cruise is a replacement for our cancelled April 2020 cruise on the Bliss (on which we had a balcony 😞 ). Unfortunately, given the increase in prices, I couldn't really justify paying twice the amount I had committed before (yes, I did get a refund), and so decided to go with an Inside Cabin. I have used the CruiseDeckPlans site, and looked for similar cabins on all decks on all Breakaway Plus class ships. I noticed the configuration, with the mini "desk" and the two twin / ~King bed layouts, but noticed that there was no chair, or even room for one! I guess my DH will just have to lounge on the bed to watch TV! Thanks for the tip about requesting a chair from the steward, @don't-use-real-name; if there's room, we might just try that! And yup, the suitcases are definitely going under the bed(s) -- I noted the dearth of storage space in the closet.
  8. OK, no, this post has nothing to do with navels . . . just some "Stay at Home" humor! I have searched through the Cabin reviews, the ship reviews, the Cabin post on this forum -- and can find next to nothing on people's experience with Inside Cabins, specifically on Breakaway Plus class ships. I've used the Deck Plan site (I don't know if I can name it here, so . . .), and have viewed all of the pictures I could find there. My "burning" questions at this point are: 1. Is there any kind of seating in an IC cabin? Maybe just the little stool with the tray table top? I'm thinking about TV viewing, which my traveling partner (AKA DH) uses to relax before going to sleep. 2. Is it possible to store suitcases under the bed(s)? I would think so, but couldn't find any mention of it. Thanks in advance for any feedback on Inside Cabins!
  9. I, too, got a refund on the Bliss Panama Canal cruise; I've since rebooked (an inside cabin) on Encore for April 2021 (Miami-LA). The price was pretty reasonable, and I really want to see the canal! For me, this is a "destination + ship" cruise -- a place I really want to see, and a cruise line / ship that I have not yet experienced. As far as the mask/shore excursion restrictions, I'm not personally bothered by it. I will do what I can to protect my fellow passengers, and myself, against COVID-19 and any other ailments; if that means I'm restricted to NCL shore excursions, that's ok. I really want to see the Panama Canal; the opportunity to explore the ports is a bonus.
  10. I don't know how long this will last, but on my Cruise Planner today (9/21/2020) at 1:20 pm PST for Anthem OTS Norwegian Fjords 16-24 July 2021: DBP (it says including gratuity!): $46/day; total for each DBP was $368, so it looks like gratuity was included in the price. DBP + 1 Device VOOM: $54/day ("Each adult of legal drinking age assigned to the same stateroom must purchase this package. Price shown is per person, per day.). I couldn't tell if this meant that both had to buy DBP + Voom 1 Device) VOOM 1 Device: $11.49/day VOOM 2 Device: $17.99/day

  12. Thank you so much for your great review (and thank you, Darko, for the great pictures!). If I may ask, what kind of cabin were you in? Did you happen to notice if any of the Inside cabins were being used?
  13. @Pelican Bill So neat to see someone else knows what "tip" stands for (or, more accurately, stood for -- since, as you noted, they're now commonly expected after a service is rendered).
  14. Mine, too. I'll wait a couple of days to make sure it doesn't post, and then will call. It was my initial deposit as well, made to a different CC than the one shown in my refund email, so it's possible it's in process.
