  1. I had to look that up because being retired U.S.N. myself it seemed excessive and surprisingly... https://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=113370
  2. Click on the promo you are interested in. On the next page scroll down and click on "Terms and Conditions". You will find all the info you need to know about your perks.
  3. Just curious, exactly how much FCC does it take to choke a horse?
  4. Not sure why you would think that. I rarely tip extra and I've never had any reason to complain. 20% gratuity paid in advance is plenty as far as I'm concerned. It's really up to you what you do with your money.
  5. There is no need to tip anything. You have paid gratuities in advance. https://www.ncl.com/onboard-packages/beverage-packages
  6. When it comes to modern cruise ships, especially the MEGA ships are there really any that one would look at and say "Wow..that's a great looking ship"? To me they all look like floating resorts/hotels/office buildings. Regardless, it doesn't much matter what the outside looks like.
  7. The forum you want to be on for this query is the San Juan port of call forum. Lots of good info available. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/80-san-juan-pr/
  8. That was a typo on that posters part. He meant "FCC", Future Cruise Credit.
  9. "Available on select sailings" Check the T/C's and "Cruise Deals" on the main NCL page.
  10. If you haven't done so already make sure you read the fine print in the Terms and Conditions of the current offer on NCL.com.
  11. That article and information is six weeks old. Finances have changed since then.
  12. You aren't wrong, I just wasn't as clear as I could have been. Many posts I have read (NCL) the affected passengers felt like they had no choice but to take the FCC's when initially the whole cruising/cancelling fiasco was clear as mud. Regardless, my point still stands, once the FCC crowds are gone the lines will have no choice but to have sailing specials to get cruisers to come back and of course, appeal to new cruisers. (Good luck with that).
  13. Disagree with Arnold. Once people have used up their FCC's from the previously cancelled cruises the lines will absolutely have to present good deals to get cruisers back on the ships. A lot of people have rebooked because they had no choice, some of their own volition. I just did a quick glance through the NCL web site and there is zero chance of me spending the kind of money they are advertising cruises for even if it was a normal situation.
