  1. We don't need your spreadsheet. We just need to know where you find out how many rooms are available.
  2. If I recall correctly Margaritaville lasted exactly 1 cruise as an included restaurant. Apparently there were 2 hour lineups for lunch and the next cruise it was a la carte.
  3. Yes. The parking garage right across the street is Republic Parking. I have used them a couple of times.
  4. How do you know this? I don't think any cruise line publishes totals of sold or available cabins.
  5. There is a post on the Encore Inaugural Caribbean cruise that show hard selzer as an option on the beer menu.
  6. We got our upgrade letter yesterday, 95 days out. We are in an inside. I did some mock bookings and it seems that the insides do not have many rooms left, and the higher room categories have many more rooms left. NCL might be trying to create some openings at the low end so they don't have to report the category as sold out. If that's the case we might expect that these offers might be accepted soon. Also, by not selling out the insides it means that the "starting at" price on the search summary stays nice and low.
  7. On the first cruise of the Escape, when Margaritaville was a free to dine venue, there were 2 hour waits for lunch. When they starting charging people on the second cruise then everybody lost interest.
  8. I saw the recycling area on the Star last February, so it is still in the rotation. The officer in charge was rather miffed that in some european ports all of their carefully sorted garbage is mixed together and taken to the landfill.
  9. You can get them from Amazon, Aliexpress, virtually any store fixture supply store. I got mine at http://www.eddies.com , search for hang tabs. I paid more in shipping than I did for the tabs. Be carefully when ordering. Some hang tabs contain a perforated section to make it easier to detach the glue portion from the tab portion. You don't want those.
  10. I just ordered some hang tabs. You know those plastic stickers with the hole that stores use to hang products. So now I can attach my card to a lanyard without using those stupid envelopes.
  11. I was doing a back to back out of Miami a few years ago and standing in the lobby for the last guests to leave and clear customs before we could we could do our quick disembark/customs/reembark routine. There was an elderly couple that waited in their room until there name was called on the PA system as the very last passengers before they even bothered to come down to the gangway. That couple made all the Back to Backers plus hundreds of people on the pier wait an additional 15 minutes because they didn't want to get off the boat too early. Don't be that couple.
  12. Bid anyway, when people are upgraded it creates vacancies in other categories. I was on the Escape last year, there were only two rooms left on the entire ship, they were havens. When they processed the bids 2 suites moved up to haven, 2 balconies moved up to suites and we moved up to a balcony from an oceanview.
  13. Most alcohol based hand sanitisers are ineffective against norovirus. Soap and water will probably work better. https://www.romper.com/p/why-wont-most-hand-sanitizers-kill-norovirus-theres-only-one-that-will-36063 I am assuming that the washy washy crew uses the effective kind listed in the link above.
  14. I usually hang a Canadian flag that covers the top half of the door using magnetic clips.
  15. Very large (18"x24") zip lock bags.
