  1. The biggest perk for me, is the 3 points for NCL purchases, which equals 3% back. I don't use this card for any other purchases. If you spend a lot on NCL, it's worth getting. If you don't, there are better cards out there.
  2. I've done this over 10 times in the last year and a half. It can save you a lot more than $50, it just depends on the sailing. You pay for the lowest priced cabin in a category, and move up to the highest. You can even pay the sailaway price, move up, and get to pick your cabin(sailaways are guarantees), but then you don't get the perks. Booking a sailaway inside, I've saved over $700 on a sailing (minus the perk) of what an IA was priced. Booking Obstructed Ocean View is usually a great deal, because you get both perks, and move to an OA. I've saved over $600 doing that. The chocolate covered strawberries are just an added bonus.

  3. The Bliss is my favorite ship at the moment, she's amazing! ...but my husband wouldn't let me book her for Alaska again. He felt cheated. The observation lounge is a game changer. I'm not sure if the Joy will have that after the refurbishment. It doesn't have it now. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Ok, but just to let you know, they have to sail around Vancouver Island, because they are too big to fit through the Canadian part of the Inside Passage. We were on the first sailing of the Bliss to Alaska in June, and a lot of people were very unhappy about this. On the smaller ships, this is some of the best scenery of the trip.

  5. Neither will do the inside passage, they are too big. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. I agree with the Cruise Next Certificates, but have another idea if you have some left over at the end of your sailing. As long as you've left the daily service charge on your account, you can designate nonrefundable OBC to go as additional gratuities to whomever you like. We had them give part of ours to our room steward, and part to our favorite bartenders. We just told the customer service desk the first names, and where they worked.

  7. We are booked b2b on the August 26th and September 2nd sailings. We are in the same inside cabin for both, so I'd rather not upgrade, but DH prefers a balcony. We have gotten offers for both sailings. I only bid the minimum, $75 pp/per sailing. September 2nd has very few balconies left, so I doubt that I will win that, August 26th has more, so who knows. I have bid 6 times in the past, won three of those. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. We'll be driving over from Fort Myers. See you on the ship! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. The system should know about your dining package. If you are Platinum or above, the system doesn't know about those free dinners. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. 120 days before sailing, unless you are in the Haven. I think that they can book at 130. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Thank You for posting this. It was interesting. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. The escape room takes about an hour, and the comedy sets are about 45 min. You need to make reservations when you board. Howl at the Moon usually runs from 9 pm - 1am, and is come, and go as you please. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. LOL, We booked the Encore TA a month ago, but sorry, no single ladies in our group. I'm loving all three live reviews, Thank You. We'll be on board next week. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you Tony! Your videos are great. I've only watched the Venice ones at the moment, but they were helpful. We are sailing out of/ into Venice in August/September and I'm trying to plan where to stay, and what to do before and after our cruise. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. Yes, the Illusionarium has been gone for about a year. Yes, La Cuciana is covered. We prefer Million Dollar Quartet, but why wouldn't you want to see both? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
