  1. We sail this July 27 and only booked this May 3!
  2. Sailed the Gem 8 times. Love the size, layout, crew and entertainment! Not much changed in her last update. Mostly carpeting and decor.
  3. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis at the San Diego Marina. Beautiful views. Easy walk to Glasslamp district. Also right at the seaport area with shops and restaurants, really nice. Did the hop on hop off trolley to see all the other popular districts, really enjoyed it.
  4. We were in San Diego last June. DH for work, myself for a little vacation. We both did the zoo. Absolutely loved it! One day, while DH was working, I did the Hop on Hop off trolley. A great way to see many different things in San Diego. If you do the complete loop and don't get off anywhere, it is approximately 2 hours. But I would highly recommend getting off and seeing things if time allows. Trolleys pick up frequently. Balboa Park is beautiful. Old town is really interesting. It also drives thru and stops in Little Italy, the Glasslamp District, Coronado Island and several other areas. I really enjoyed it. The USS Midway is also right down the street from the cruise terminal. We both found this very interesting! Hope you have a great cruise and enjoy your day in San Diego!
  5. We were in San Diego last June. We loved Richard Walker's for breakfast. I had a stuffed crepe and DH had a baked omelette at the La Jolle location. We both did eggs, bacon and potatoes at the Glasslamp district location. We still tell everyone how good it was. We even took pictures like we were foodies which we are not, but that should tell you how good it was! We didn't eat at any of the other restaurants you mention. But we did really enjoy Rockin Baha Lobster. We ate at their location in Old Town and in the Glasslamp district. Also really liked The Lions Share in downtown San Diego. I tried antelope sliders (never had antelope before) and they were delicious. DH had a sausage board with 3 different sausages (boar, rabbit and elk) which he said were also delicious. We also went to the Crack Shack in Little Italy. DH seen it on the Food Network and wanted to try it. Really good fried chicken! Seating is outside and it gets busy but we did enjoy it. On Coronado Island, we went to the Bluewater Boathouse for lunch. Had an excellent lobster roll!!! And the water views are nice. It's across the seat from the famed Coronado Hotel and the staff said the building used to be a boathouse for the hotel. Hope you have a great trip!
  6. Yes, please tell us about your excursions. On the Joy on 7/27 and very interested in everyone's experiences! Thanks for sharing!
  7. Can't wait to hear more! On the Joy 7/27!
  8. Sailed on NCL 17 times. Our 18th cruise is coming up on the Joy in July. Got the same letter the other week that the OP has gotten. First time ever. Also a week later received luggage tags in the mail, again 1st time ever. And, no we are not in the Haven and never have been. Thought it might be something new they are trying to keep customers informed.
  9. Our best deal was $1200 for 2 in a balcony cabin on the Gem for 7 day Bermuda cruise in Oct 2011That was the total after all port fees, taxes, insurance etc. Booked it 9 days before we sailed. That was our first NCL cruise and have sailed NCL ever since.
  10. Can't wait to read more! On the Joy 7/27 and it's nice to read all the details ferment perspectives that everyone has. DH and I seem to be more like you, we don't sweat the small stuff!!
  11. Thanks for sharing your video! Can't wait till my July cruise and your video added to my anticipated excitement! 😄
  12. Thanks for posting! Looks delicious 😋! Hope they continue to do the seafood buffet! Sailing 7/27!
  13. Thanks for this info, so glad to hear that these 2 tours are good as we picked both of them! Your pictures are beautiful, thanks for sharing!
