  1. I am surprised to hear you say that, almost everyone on my roll calls are rebooking for 2021
  2. When I first sailed with NCL (not that long ago) the dress was described as "resort casual" I.e. what you would wear to a golf resort
  3. We had an extended balcony mid ship cabin in the Epic a couple of years ago.as complawyer says the rooms are narrow, the beds are short and the bathroom isn't to everyone's taste but all these issues exist in the standard balcony cabins too. We found that the room was dark because of the extended balcony. The balcony itself wasn't as big as I expected it to be but certainly big enough. The big thing about med cruises are with the long port days you don't get a lot of time to enjoy your balcony, or at least we didn't. All in all I would choose that cabin again because it is central and you don't feel the movement of the ship but as complawyer says if you can afford it the club suite is very slightly bigger. For what it's worth I love the Epic, it was the first ship I cruised on, Priscilla is a funny show, we like Cirque but I think that has gone now and i liked the open spaces. Gail
  4. I think the kids sail free promo applies to 3rd and 4th guests in the cabin, we don't know if the OP is going on her own with baby
  5. So let's say they get 250$ a week wages and look after 8 staterooms who tip 140$ per cabin that gives a weekly income of 1370$, that's over 70,000$ per year.
  6. Wow, I'll have to try again when our December cruise gets cancelled. 10% off would make a difference in our haven booking. Did she have to effectively rebook so it was like a new booking?
  7. I spoke to NCL, they could see the 10% voucher although it wasn't on MyNCL. I made a new booking but also asked if it could be used on existing bookings, the answer unfortunately was no, new bookings only.
  8. Looking at the revised deck plan for the Epic it now shows some of the old spa cabins in the standard club suite colour. Our cabin 14098 is one of the recategorised (red) cabins, guess I will have to try to get one of brown ones instead
  9. Really, maybe? I thought it was probably a money grab: $299 per person per week (×2 weeks on our TA) for a spa pass vs additional $200 per person for the whole cruise for a spa cabin, nice quick increase in income for NCL. Of course maybe I am being cynical or maybe it was a website error and when I board I find that I actually do have spa access.
  10. I had a cruise cancelled for 1st Nov and I have a TA booked for Dec which I'm pretty sure will be cancelled, in the unlikely event that it goes ahead and we're allowed to enter US we will go. In the meantime on the assumption that it will be cancelled I have booked Dec 2021, April 2022 and Oct 2022 (I already had a booking for Sept 2021). I hope it will all be over by then and if not back to normal at least normalish I am happy to cruise whatever the restrictions. I work from home and only leave the house once a week to go shopping so I will put up with pretty much anything to get a holiday 🙂
  11. Just a quick note to say that on the TA in April 2022 both the Spa balcony cabins and the spa mini suites are showing as sold out because they have been recategorised without the spa access. We have just booked 14098 which used to be an M9 and is now an MA. Guess I'll have to buy a spa pass instead
  12. We had a cruise for 1st November cancelled a couple of days ago and on the email from NCL it said that the 10% discount would appear in our Latitudes account on 7th October. It hasn't arrived yet, has anyone else got theirs? Am I just looking in the wrong place?
  13. We paid for our Dec 5th a few weeks ago on the basis that I'd rather ho but if not I can use the credit towards other cruises i have booked.
