  1. My offer was a little different from Amex: Spend $500 or more, get 15,000 Membership Rewards® points Norwegian Cruise Line Expires 12/31/2020 Details Get 15,000 additional Membership Rewards points one-time by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $500 in one or more eligible transactions online at NCL.com or calling 1-888-438-7114 by 12/31/2020. See terms for exclusions. Offer Terms ENROLLMENT/ELIGIBLE CARDS: Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Your enrollment does not extend to any other Cards that may be linked to the same Membership Rewards program account (such as Additional Cards). Offer is non-transferable. ELIGIBLE PURCHASES: Offer valid for qualifying reservations between 10/2/2020 & 12/31/2020. Includes spend for booking directly via NCL.com or by calling 1-888-438-7114. Excludes purchases onboard, Norwegian gift cards, shore excursions and transportation to and from the ship. Valid only on US website. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars. Please note that hotels, car rental companies, cruise lines do not accept prepaid cards for charges authorized in advance, although prepaid cards may be used to settle the final bill. Check to make sure prepaid cards are accepted before attempting to use your prepaid card to take advantage of offers for these merchants. Purchases may fall outside of the offer period in some cases due to a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction (for example, the purchase date for online orders may be the shipping date). If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the additional points. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the additional Membership Rewards points if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party. EARNING POINTS: Limit of 15,000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must be active, not be past due, canceled or have a returned payment outstanding to receive the additional Membership Rewards points. Any additional points you receive through this offer are in addition to the points you would normally receive for purchases charged to your Card, but the number of additional points you receive will be based on the purchase price after any credit or other discount is applied. When we calculate the additional points benefit for Amex EveryDay® Card products, points awarded under this offer will not be included. Additional points will be credited to your Membership Rewards program account within 90 days after 12/31/2020, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. We may not credit additional points to, or we may take away additional points that have been credited to, your program account if the qualifying purchase is cancelled. Terms and conditions for the Membership Rewards program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice. The value of Membership Rewards points varies according to how you choose to use them.

  3. Just cxl’d our 1/10/21 Joy out of Miami and rolled it into 1/9-22 Encore out of Miami. Saved a few $$ and get the extra point, but did anyone else also receive a $50 OBC for their cabin? Didn’t see that written anywhere. Is this a Latitudes perk?
  4. I’m guessing the pick 2 and Balcony for Oceanview wasn’t as big a hit, So Choose 5 Free Offers is back. I haven’t done any mock bookings yet to see what price changes are accompanying the new(old) promo. https://www.ncl.com/termsandconditions/promotions
  5. I also can’t see Cuomo allowing people to come into NY unless they are quarantining for 14 days prior to any cruise...and even then will the ports even be open yet...and so it continues...
  6. Can someone direct me to the thread that defines all of the Promo Codes? I've seen one a while back, but a search pulls up many threads that are only discussing one particular promo code or another. TIA
  7. We love Aft Balcony cabins. There is nothing like staring out and just seeing our wake 😊.
  8. Wouldn’t any dry dock also include whatever retrofitting may be required as per any new CDC guidelines...air filtration, larger medical/quarantine facilities, etc.?
  9. Where can one find the old itineraries of these ships? I went on the Windward for my Honeymoon in April of ‘95...but I can’t find any historical NCL itineraries from this time. We stopped in Domenica, which they don’t even visit anymore. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  13. I live on Long Island and am grateful that Cuomo and the Legislature took the necessary steps that got us out of those horrible early days. With the current 14 day mandatory quarantine from 34 states and Puerto Rico in place, and the potential for more hot spots around the country in the ensuing months, where are all of these potential NY cruisers going to hold up for 2 weeks in NYC prior to boarding?
  14. When do you think Miami, Tampa, or Port Canaveral will be opening up for cruises? Europe was much more diligent across the board when it came to COVID, thus, selective itineraries exclusive to that part of the world should move forward. I’m more concerned about my 7 day Eastern on the Joy out of Miami on January 10, 2021. Any thoughts? Based on this letter, my final payment date hasn’t changed. Hopefully it will when November ultimately gets pulled too in a couple of more weeks.
