  1. Anyone try to change chips for Euro on the Epic? Are there fees or limits?
  2. Epic specific question - does anyone have any good hacks for the bathroom situation? Not a fan of the open bathroom space. Can things be hung on the doors so that it becomes a little more private. Any sound/smell dampening techniques?
  3. Yes! I found some good info through the roll call. I was a little skeptical about IT.EU because it was referenced SO MUCH (seemed like spam), but after finding some more outside reviews, I will probably book some spots with them soon.
  4. Hotels would store luggage even if we're not staying? Will be landing 9am for a 6pm (4pm, really) embarkation. I also saw that some app Bag BNB was suggested, which I'll be looking in to.
  5. Hello! Just want to make sure nothings changed in the last two months. Flying in on Sunday morning, want to drop off luggage and head back into the city since we only get that day. What's the earliest that the Barcelona port starts taking in luggage?
  6. Oh! Thats something I missed! Wife won't be so happy, so I will need to find an alternative...
  7. Thanks for all the info! We will be coming from NY and we're hoping to push through any jet lag since Sunday is the only day we'll get in Barcelona. Needing to lug around our stuff will be a hassle...that's unfortunate.
  8. Oh great, I'll look through that. I've always focused on the NCL boards on this site
  9. Hello, I'm late in prepping for my cruise, so I thought I'd put together a simple survey to get feedback from past cruisers to help me get started on an itinerary. Jumping on to the Epic soon and doing the Western Mediterranean for the first time. Thanks! Landing in Barcelona the morning of departure, will I be able to drop off my bags at the ship and tour Barcelona (eyeing the Market and the Unfinished Cathedral)? Can I use my Uber app in the following locations? If not, recommended mode of transportation? Barcelona, Spain - Naples, Italy - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy - Cannes, France - Palma, Majorca, Spain - What is your number one excursion, whether self booked or through the ship at the following locations? Barcelona, Spain - Naples, Italy - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy - Cannes, France - Palma, Majorca, Spain - What is your number one food/drink at each location? Is there anything that's unique to that location worth finding? Barcelona, Spain - Naples, Italy - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy - Cannes, France - Palma, Majorca, Spain - What souvenir would you recommend seeking out at each location? Barcelona, Spain - Naples, Italy - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy - Cannes, France - Palma, Majorca, Spain - If you had to give a single pro tip for traveling in the following locations, what would it be? Barcelona, Spain - Naples, Italy - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy - Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy - Cannes, France - Palma, Majorca, Spain - I have the specialty dining package, what are your top 3 specialty restaurants on the Epic? 1. 2. 3. Thanks!
  10. If the friends and family sail free promo isn't currently offered on a cruise I'm interested in, is there a chance that it will get added later? Specifically, looking at booking a week in early March but the third and fourth sail free is only offered in later March.
  11. Phones have been awfully busy lately. Just bit the bullet and removed the $206 paid package and will do the upgrade on the ship. Guy I spoke with asked his manager and they both confirmed that they have no idea about upgrading the 250 min promo package.
  12. Yeah, I'm slightly worried that if we board with both on the amenities list, the worst case result is having a fully paid $206 unlimited premium package alongside a then useless, non-changeable 250 minute internet promo package (n). OR they may talk us into a benefit of the 250 minute being for a second device (n)(n). (n)
  13. Does anyone know the proper way to do this? Heres my scenario: I originally had the SDP promo, and purchased the unlimited premium for $206 weeks ago. Yesterday we decided to ditch the SDP and just take the credits to reduce the internet charge. So called up and changed our free at sea to the 250 minute internet. I checked again today and see both that promo and the paid $206 unlimited on my amenity statement. Just got off the phone with another rep and they sounded confused about upgrading the 250 minute package ... I see two options here: call till someone understands about the 250 minute upgrade, or remove the paid $206 and upgrade on board. However, I believe theres a loss with that second option?
  14. Going with a family of 6 people soon, and two of them got the promotion for the 3-meal specialty dining package. Weighing out whether we should get the remaining 4 people the packages as well considering we'll be eating the meals together. Does anyone have an estimated amount of savings by doing so before boarding vs paying the a la carte prices? That is, perhaps an estimated adult meal at a specialty dining venue and how that compares to the ~$23 value of the SDP. Would just like to understand if its ones, tens, or hundreds in savings!
  15. Is there something similar to the breakaway where there are a few nights with live dance performances in the Manhattan room during dinner?
