  1. Wrong ship. Should be Star and this post should be posted in that roll call. Have a great cruise.
  2. No reason to lose hope or change your bid. Each experience can be quite different. The computer/algorith might love you not but if you don't bid, as with any lottary, you don't have a chance. Good luck.
  3. I'm thinking that perhaps there are more important things than money. I loved my cruise on MSC Divina, however, I've heard from friends that MSC doesn't treat solo cruisers nearly as well as NCL. Is that the reason? It would be for me, having experienced solo on several NCL cruises, and, in several different staterooms. Money is not everything.
  4. Texas seems to have very strict alcohol laws. Found this article: https://www.cruzely.com/answered-first-day-drink-packages-and-alcohol-on-galveston-cruises/
  5. Outside is generally an Oceanview. Is that the type of cabin you got?
  6. Soft drinks, soda and pop... all the same.
  7. No, it was a 2-way radio and they were broadcasting on channel 16 (VHF) which is the emergency channel the coast guard monitors.
  8. As mentioned, I do book balcony GTY cabins, and, I'm Platinum. My upcoming cruise is in less than a month and I've just been assigned my cabin. It's a BA, deck 15, right next to the elevators/stairs. The location is fantastic, especially if you have mobility issues. I'm lucky enough not to, but still, I'm sure I'll be grateful for this location considering the size of this ship. So, how do they assign cabins? I think it must be just a computer program that does it. No idea what it's based on though since I've always been happy with my cabins but haven't always been Platinum. Luck of the draw.
  9. Port fees, dsc (if you've prepaid it) gratuities, shorex... etc. Will be refunded within a very short time... 5-10 bus. days. Good luck, hope you don't need to cancel.
  10. Well darn, was afraid that might happen when I looked at the price for those cruises. Too bad you're not interested in a shorter cruise. I didn't think I was either until I saw the price for a Concierge stateroom on the Joy. The pricing is great but it's only a 5-day so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't fit your bill. Oh well, you'll find something when the timing is right. Good luck 😉
