  1. For our 50th, we are taking our family of 11 to Bermuda in August of 2020, and would be interested in any ideas that you have for a celebration on the island. We’re not really interested in a dinner, but more like a celebration on one of the beaches, or any other scenic spot. We arrive on Sunday, and that’s our actual anniversary day. We’ve been to St. George’s before, and love that part of the island. Any thoughts on a wonderful locale for a visit would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I’ll take a stab at some of your questions. 1. Breakaway buffet is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the options are plentiful. If you’re interested in a more relaxed breakfast, we always eat at Taste or Savor. 2. Free restaurants all have a similar menu, but there are daily specials each night. There are always traditional meals offered each night. 3. The buffet does have a lighter menu available, but you can eat at O’Sheehans 24/7. 4. We eat at Cagney’s And Le Bistro for our specialty dining, and switch between the Brazilian dining and La Cucina for the other meal. We’re sailing on the Bliss in February, and I’m disappointed that Le Bistro has taken cream of mushroom soup off the menu. 5. There are demonstrations and shows during the day in the Atrium. Last cruise, there was a lesson on writing In Chinese! 6. I’m not sure if the shows on your cruise, but we loved Million Dollar Quartet. Also, we’re seeing Jersey Boys on the Bliss...a great show. 7. Some tips: Don’t get frustrated with the crowds on embarkation day; it gets better after that. In planning Specialty dining, be aware that you get locked out of some show reservations, as the require a 2 hour window for eating. Try managing reservations for both shows and dining before leaving. You can still do on board, but you need to manage the specialty reservations, along with shows. Enjoy your cruise!
  3. We’ve become spoiled about getting a Spa Balcony over our past few cruises. It is so relaxing, especially on Sea Days. Has anyone taken an Upgrade bid, say to a Mini-Suite, and been able to retain the Spa access? I don’t recall seeing any reference to Spa cabins in prior upgrade notices. Thanks for your help!

  4. Another interesting tidbit is that you can’t get a free glass of water with your meal at the Landshark Bar and Grille. They make you buy a bottled water. I thought that the whole food/bar scene was underwhelming. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. My understanding about getting into Belize is that there are transfers, but only for the NCL excursions, not independent travel. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
