  1. Anyone have success with a 'poor' bid from a balcony to a spa balcony? I'm sailing the Escape on Dec 7 and thinking about bidding the absolute minimum ($100 CAD pp) just to see what happens. I'm really interested in the thermal spa pass but can't swallow the actual price.
  2. I booked a Sailaway GTY inside for my upcoming Dec 7 sailing on the Escape. I knew it was a risk, but the savings were too great. I got my cabin assignment shortly after final payment. Unfortunately, I was assigned in a family inside - forward, deck 5, and right under the theatre! 😳😂 It's just me and my sister travelling. We'll be with all the Guppies! Needless to say I'm bidding for an upgrade, or hoping the pricing plummets and I can pay for an upgrade!
  3. You two sound like a fun bunch to sail with! Thanks for your detailed review! I'm sailing the Escape in Dec on this itinerary - gave me a lot of good ideas of what to do in each port. 🙂 Nothing cures post-cruise blues like making your favourite ship drink at home. 😉
  4. Great review, with a lot of great photos and tips. Can't wait to sail her in December! Thanks for sharing your experience with us!
  5. Between myself and my sister, I'm going to see how many of these we can try in December! 😂☠️
  6. I say you should experience it for yourself and make a formulated opinion after your cruise! It's so worth it. I went on my first cruise with NCL in Dec 2015, not expecting to even enjoy cruising, and it was so much fun that now I absolutely love it! Try it for yourself!
  7. I booked a Sail Away Inside, too, for my Dec Escape cruise and was wondering this. I suppose I will put in a bid for a balcony and an oceanview and just keep my eye on prices dropping. I was hoping our GTY cabin would end up being ok enough, but I suppose since the upgrade process it makes more sense that GTY wouldn't get as favourable cabin assignments as in the past. Not when they can make money off people upgrading!
  8. As a native Haligonian, you should try Salty's, McKelvie's, or the Five Fisherman in Halifax for seafood!
