  1. Stalking cruise prices and found a perfect example of the effect of supply and demand on cabin pricing: 7 day Escape to Bermuda on June 30, 2019 ... $1,449 for a sail away OV and $1,449 for a sail away balcony.
  2. Sorry to hear about the crappy butler ... yes, there are some duds. They can make a mediocre cruise great with a smile and attentiveness. Next time, tell the concierge immediately.
  3. OP - sorry to hear about your injury. Ask for a handicap cabin with hand bars.
  4. ‘NCL doesn’t have a good record of to making it to GSC
  5. That stinks ... you will probably skip GSC, as well. Get a spa pass.
  6. We give the kids two pieces of driftwood and let them go at it.
  7. Agreed. This is not a way to keep a customer, especially one that cruises often.
  8. NCL call center customer service stinks. It leaves a bad taste in the mouth and only puts more stress on the ship’s staff who have to deal with it.
  9. I agree ... cruising itself is bubbling. The growth will soon be unsustainable at current pace.
  10. We don’t usually board in the first groups. In fact, for this cruise out of NYC we are taking a train and won’t board until close to 1:30-2:00. I, too have also waited to book on board and the choices were abysmal ...8:30 - 9:00 p.m. or none at all. Hence, I reserved at the 120-day mark.
  11. Not sure ... the supervisor sounded flustered. The problem is that the same options are no longer available for reservations. We don’t want to eat at 9:00 pm. They were said to wait until boarding, which negates the whole idea of reservations. Completely unhelpful. We are just a two-top ... I feel bad for the eight-tops that lose reservations.
  12. Upgraded my cabin last night and checked my dinner reservations ... they were all eliminated ... no longer existed. I just spoke with an NCL supervisor after being on hold for 30 minutes. Per the supervisor, ALL dinner reservations are subject to cancellation when upgrading your cabin. This has never happened to me in the past so it must be a new policy. I thought it was a mistake, but the supervisor said it happens. Be careful out there ... the seas are choppy.
  13. Try to be on time for your reservation ... if you get there early and need to wait for the table to fill out, then you will watch someone else’s chef. They do the same shtick.
  14. For the cable car down in Fira, there may be a very long line. Send the folks needing assistance to the front of the line so they are not standing and waiting. Travelers with a ounce of compassion should let them cut in.
