  1. No straws at all on the GETAWAY last week. That was the end of the Pina Coladas. Should have brought our own.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    Bid was for 10/21/2018 Getaway Sailing. I was in their room. Even their travel agent said they had never seen such a low bid accepted. sorry if this aggravates anyone. I couldn’t even get an upgrade from a balcony to a spa balcony for $100 each.

    Someone on my cruise was upgraded to a haven room for a bid of $200 each from a balcony. They are first time NCL cruisers and just booked the week before. Looks like no rhyme or reason to who gets upgrades.

    Laundry bag

    Just got off the Spirit 10 day Rome to Rome. Kept waiting for the laundry special, but it never came.
  5. I believe they also have sales for the dining packages set up in HEADLINERS.

    shore excursion multi discount question

    Hi...an additional related question...the excursions need to be booked at the excursion desk to get the silver or gold excursion discount, correct? Not be confused with the $50.00 per stateroom excursion discount per day.They cannot be booked online or via your room to get the discount, because you need to show your key card. Please correct me if I am wrong. We missed out on this discount in our recent Bermuda cruise because we booked the excursions from our room.
  7. Hi, my daughter and son-in-law have 3 children, 5,3 and 15 months. They are considering the concierge one bedroom family suite. This arrangement has a pull out sofa bed and a Pullman sleeper. The two older children need to sleep seperately, so both beds will be in use. Is there room for a pack n play with both beds in use? Where could this be placed? The baby still takes two naps so they would need to be able to have a darkened area for those. The other two (not so much the 5 year old) take naps as well. Any suggestions? Have any of you been in this situation? Any insight you can provide would be helpful. Thank you!Disney drea

    Tender in Juneau?

    We were tender #21, and were called around 2:15. So we had a lot of time.

    Escargot?

    Was available each evening in the main dining room as well as BLU on last week's Solstice Cruise. My husband ordered it every night!

    Tender in Juneau?

    The line is pretty well organized, except for those that save a place and let their whole family in. You do get a number, but can wait in any public area for your number to be called. You can even wait in your stateroom, and open the door to hear the announcement for your specific tender.

    Tender in Juneau?

    We were just on the June 28th Solstice trip. Waiting in line to get tender tickets is the worst part of the experience (not that bad). We had an independent excursion for 4:20 with Harv and Marv and were off the ship with more than an hour to spare. 4 tenders were in use instead of the previous 2.

    Camera for Alaska?

    The SX50 has several Image Stabilization modes. It is extremely light, so we are thinking about bringing a monopod (more stuff). Actually the heavier camera are easier to stabilize, but I don't really want to carry it around. We are on the June 28th Solstice cruise. No matter what camera you use, you will have terrific memories! Enjoy your cruise!

    Camera for Alaska?

    Because I don't want to lug the 5D and the accompanying heavy glass to Alaska, I elected to purchase a Canon SX50 because of the telephoto lens size and raw capability. It should be coming today!! I have read several reviews where for many professional photographers it is the travel camera of choice. I'll also be bringing a Canon G11 (better low light capability) so we should be set! Almost any camera, as long as you understand the functionality, and have had time to practice a little, should do the job.
  15. We are hoping to use the LUGGAGE VALET service on our upcoming Solstice Alaska cruise. If we use luggage valet, do we have the option to self disembark? Our flight is not until 3:00, so we would like to grab a cab and go over to Pike's Market instead of sitting at the airport for 4-5 hours. Has any body done this on the Solstice? I'd like to avoid paying $70.00 for a Seattle tour prior to our flight, when I know I can do it much less expensively myself. The only glitch would be if we don't get Luggage Valet (not enough people) and then we would be screwing ourselves if we had to disembark early, and had no where to put our luggage in the meantime. Any thoughts? Has anyone done this exact process? Any input would be very much appreciated.
