    Has anyone ever hit a jackpot on slots on the ships?

    On the 10 day western Caribbean on the breakaway out of New Orleans on the January 17 2019 sailing, a woman sitting next to me on a Different Machine hit for $10,125.00 give or take a few dollars. Sorry it was late that night. The amazing thing was she was on a so called penny machine, bet minimum 0f $.50 to $5.00. She was Playing $1.00 and hit the grand jackpot. Then When NCL showed up, after multiple people myself included went to the cashier counter to let them know they were needed, they proceeded to inform the women and her husband that they would only give them half in cash, and the rest would have to be a check. The arguments over this lasted the last 5 days of a ten day cruise between NCL, the couple who won, and those of us there to witness. We all told them that they had more then enough money to pay cash, just start opening up the machines taking all the money, (aka) slot machines. The machines only took in cash, not checks. alas the machine next to hers did pay me out $1,125.00 in a jack pot at $3.00 per bet.

    Disney Dream No Casino arrgh

    I'm sorry but I can't help myself. DID You fall and hit your head? I have many people asking me to check into River cruises. My response is when I find one with a Casino I will think about it.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    The one that showed as processing was for a standard balcony from an ocean view for $110.00 per person. then it reset to pending. Another person on the same cruise went from a ocean view to a balcony for $75.00 per person yesterday. It must really just be a roll of the dice I guess.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    I used the email link to check in, and that's when I show the processing for 1 of the bids. I Did check my credit Card and there was no sign of activity. There is still time left, maybe I will get lucky. Either way I get to spend 2 nights in New Orleans and then the 10 day cruise. Life Is Good. By the way does anyone know if upgrades are ever processed on the weekends?

    I'm on the 1/17 Breakaway sailing. Yesterday when I checked I showed 3 expired bids and 1 Processing. When I checked later in the evening they were all set back to pending. Not sure what that is about. But I was really bummed out.

    Bliss / Live / Solo - Dec-01-08-2018...

    I can also warn you to be careful with it. Just wait until your in there, with shampoo and on and soap on your face, when you knock the stupid thing off. It will shatter very nicely on the floor, now you can't even move your feet. lucky for me at least it didn't land on my toes.

    cash on cruise

    Bundle the cash very carefully. If done in $100.00 bills the size of the bundle will be easily manageable and hidden. Try to find out in advanced if your hotel room has a safe. I stayed at the Drury Inn in New Orleans last year, and they had no safe. Not a couple of fun days. Also make sure to be aware of the $10k limit to walk around with. This can cause trouble at airports and customs on return to port.

    Solo Cruiser's Roll Call

    I was on the Escape last January for my first NCL cruise, never had any issues with unauthorized people in the studio area. your keycard is required to access all entry doors. In the evenings solos that were not in studio cabins were given access for the evening Solo meetings. Outside of this narrow time window, no Key card no access. Perhaps somebody was leaving the doors blocked open that allowed kids in? I had a fantastic time on this trip.
