  1. Good Morning! Now that we are past final payment and under 110 days, I thought I would throw this question out again! Thanks
  2. I would really appreciate some insight. We are now planning for our next cruise and the dining and excursions are currently open for selection. My question is; I saw some interesting excursions that are offered on the NCL webpage for some of the ports we are visiting. However when I look at the excursions listed under “Explore & Plan” on our Vacation Summary, there is very little available there? I saw that a few on the main webpage were not available for our cruise, but is it possible more will become available? Will the ones listed be all that we have available? Do I just forget about the credits and book outside tours? Thank you Ken
  3. Yes, I had planned to pay for each phone individually, I just didn't know if I had to set up separate NCL log in's for each phone. Thanks
  4. Good afternoon! Please bear with me. I have a follow-up question to this “Phone and Messenger Package”. My question being, can two people sign into one account and use this for two phones or do I need to set up a separate account using the same reservation #? I appreciate any input. Thanks. Ken
  5. Is imessage the same thing as the NCL Calling and text function through their appl?
  6. Hey Cruisers, I have been looking into the Phone & Text option through the NCL appl. At $9.95 each for the duration of the cruise, it sounds like it will work well for us as a means of communication while wondering around the ship. My question is, can two people sign into one account and use this for two phones or do I need to set up a separate account using the same reservation #? I appreciate any input. Thanks Ken
  7. Thank you very much for this information. I will be researching this option as well 😎
  8. Yes, Thank you very much! I guess I shouldn't be surprised that NCL makes this information difficult to find. I only found out about it from this thread. One more (of many) thing off my list!😁
  9. Hey All! I am glad to see that there is, what appears to be a convenient means of communication while onboard. It is one of the things on my to-do list. Reading through the brochure it looks like it is $9.95 per phone. What I am hoping to confirm is if the price for the whole cruise? Is it per day? We are heading out on a 16-day and if the $9.95 is for the entire cruise, GREAT! But, I cannot imagine NCL letting this service go for such a reasonable rate! Thanks
  10. Thank you all! Lesson Learned 😀! After many years of traveling, sitting back and letting someone else plan for you (especially the cruise line) doesn't always work out! We are flying out of Boston on the 12th. Again, we have no idea when. We are planning a tour on the day we arrive. Using Google map, it looks like we are in a good place for a Rome tour I found, sort of a hop on hop off. Looks like embarkation day is going to be sleep in day and a lazy breakfast. NCL's reduced airfare and transfer program seems to cause more stress than it is worth. We will remember this in future planning☺️! I may have to go back and "play nice" with our travel agent! We plan to enjoy this vacation to the fullest. Thank you again.
  11. Hello All , I am hoping somebody will be able to offer some advice. We will be embarking on the Pearl in October and this is the first time I have allowed NCL to handle our flights and transfers. We are flying in a day early and staying at the Crown Plaza. My question is, has anyone had experience with the “day of” cruise transfer from the hotel to the ship? Do we have any input into the time we are picked up? I spoke to our PCC who said we won’t be told “anything” until we check into the hotel and receive some “Welcome” packet. This would make it impossible to plan any excursion or activities, etc., that morning before we set sail, which would be disappointing. Thank you for any insight! Ken
  12. Thank you for the feedback. From the deckplan, it looks like the Great Outdoors is just two decks above us and has a bar. The exercise will do us good 🙂. I have decided we will have the minibar emptied for the 16 days. and if we do decide to entertain in the suite or on the deck, we will just order through our butler. Thank you all again!!
  13. Looking forward to our upcoming TA in October aboard the Pearl. I have searched the board and have come up with scattered information about the minibar? I am trying to weigh the cost of bar setup's (which are ridiculous!) vs the occasional use of the minibar. Would anyone have any idea or list of minibar charges? Would our suite or the Premium Plus package impact the cost? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
