  1. If your bid to upgrade to Haven is successful, am I correct that in addition to the set gratuities, you also are expected to tip the Haven staff as they don’t share in the gratuity “pool”?
  2. We tried Celebrity, specifically the Equinox in April. We’d previously been twice on NCL. Short story - we are going back to NCL in March . We found the Equinox to have a fair amount of live music, which was nice. Mostly easy listening type music. No comedy club. No District Brew House, no Cellars wine bar. We also missed O’Sheehans (pub style, all day food). Though we are not water slide, rock wall climbing types, it is sometimes fun to watch activities- none of that on the Equinox. Fewer area to sit outside at a bar. We did enjoy the El Bacio cafe and the martini bar on the Equinox, that bar seemed to be the only lively one. Overall, a much more laid back vibe. But hey, a day at sea is always better than a day at the office!
  3. Not a big deal, just thought if I could use them that would be great. Thanks very much
  4. I have a Starbucks gift card, and wondering if it will be accepted in the cafe once on board. Thanks!
  5. Thanks very much for the confirmation. Looking forward to trying the speciality restaurants, though to be honest we’ve always enjoyed the main dining rooms on NCL. As a perk, we’ll give it a try. Cheers!
  6. Thanks. We’ll be on the Escape as well. I was confused by the wording (?)
  7. I booked a cruise with the dining perk, and chose times to reserve. The confirmation shows for Le Bistro as “a la carte” and the confirmation states “ charges will apply” ? Is this the usual way it is shown? We’ve cruised NCL before, but never with speciality dining. Thanks for any help!
  8. We were at this Hampton in April, and they gave us each a voucher for one free drink at the bar. Nice touch, we got our drink then sat outside around the pool and relaxed. The breakfast buffet is good, big plus is that the breakfast room area is really large. As others have mentioned, great walkable location to lots of bars/restaurants and a CVS.
  9. I agree with you about lack of lunch options on the Equinox. We sailed for the first time in April, and also got tired of the buffet.
  10. What car service did you use? Following with interest as we have never left from this port, but flights are a bit better for us than to FLL or MIA. Great to have a first hand account of logistics. Thanks and enjoy!
  11. We were in a standard balcony room and asked our room attendant for a foot stool. She was back in minutes with one :)
  12. RSWBader - Thanks for the idea. We have done that previously, when our flight was in the evening, however this time with the change in flight time, we now leave FLL @ 3:30pm. And, flying Internationally, need to be at the airport approx 3 hours before departure. Leaves an odd amount of time I think with luggage etc but will look at some options. Jamjam - disappointing for sure, however sounds like we both were quick to adapt to the change, and able to get on that flight from FLL. Fingers crossed that time does not change again !
  13. Thank you. We'll plan to leave around 8:00 - 8:30 am.
  14. Will there be anywhere on the ship to eat a quick breakfast? We plan to carry off our own luggage.
  15. Our flight time has been changed, and we are no longer in a hurry to leave the ship. April 27 sailing, returning May 4th. How late can we disembark? What was a noon flight from Miami is now a 3pm flight from FLL. Thanks!
