  1. Can I buy cruise next certificates on board and use them right away to book our next cruise? Going first time NCL in late october and considering a cruise in january, but will not book untill I have the cruise next certificates (and experienced the ship), so might book it while we are still on board
  2. We are booked on the Epic, October 27 and have a balcony (9043). I received offer to bid on upgrade and mini suite with balcony starts at 50€. Is it worth it?
  3. Thanks for all your replies. We are flying in from Copenhagen, så it's within the EU and therefore no customs/imigration issues 😉 Have used Norwegian several times before and was never delayed, but off course it can happen. I talked to the TA again and we have now decided to stick to the flight, but in case it is delayed, we shall contact the TA who then will contact NCL and let them know that we are on our way but slightly delayed
  4. How strict are NCL with the "Must be onboard 2 before sailing"? Are booked on the Epic, oct 27 and talked to my TA about flight into Barcelona. I was looking at a flight with Norwegian from Copenhagen with ETA Barcelona 14,30. The TA said that it should be time enough, but now I am unsure if it was the right decission to book that flight. It will be very expensive to change it as I', affraid that the tickets are non changeable, but on the other side it will also be a bummer if we are denied to come onboard even though the ship hasn't sailed yet. So anyone tried to arrive last minute?
  5. Hi we’re booked on Epic October 27 from Barcelona. Have adult beverage package as one of the Free at sea perks. Just wondering if I will be able to get fever tree when I order Gin/Tonic?
  6. I just took the tour with JNJ Tours and I defineately second the review. We had a great day and the price of USD 50 was very reasonable. I highly recommend Stan and his crew
  7. A year ago we were on Constellation in the Mediteranean. Great cruise and we had an extremely good experience with our sommelier in the MDR. He knew what he were talking about, knew when to serve and which wines to combine with the meals chosen. Also the wines were excellent. Because of this experience we decided to book Celebrity again and has just returned from the Summit in the Caribean, but what a disappointment. The first sommelier we had, didn't come to our table before I had the waiter call for him. Just asked if we wanted white wine for the appetizer and then served it when we where half done eating the appetizer. Same thing happened with the main course. He didn't care what meals we had chosen and definately not which wines to pair with them. Next day I asked to be moved to another section. The sommelier we had there was nice and she paid a lot of atention to us, but the knowledge was not good and the selection of wines were not better than standard wines on other lines. I don't know if this is just a new standard on Celebrity (or maybe they just serve better wines in Europe) but i was very disappointed and my intention of staying loyal to Celebrity is gone. I will probably book with them again, but only if it's a good deal
  8. Hi we have 3 nights at Double Tree by Hilton in San Juan. Can anyone recommend some good authentical lokal restaurants within walking distance from the hotel?

    Car rental

    Thanks. I might do that. Does anyone have an idea of the taxi cost for that roundtrip we want (for 5 persons)?

    Car rental

    Does anyone know if there are other car rentals than Avis and Budget in Frederiksted? We are 5 and planning to see Christiansted, a sugar plantation and Cruzan Rum Destillery, so I guess that taxi will be very expensive. I would therefore like to rent a car, but both Avis and Budget are sold out on our port day, so would be glad if someone can help
  11. I noticed others also use Charlies Car Rental. The rate is good but the insurance is sky high so considering carrentals.com with insurance. I'm not american so believe that I need the insurance? have you used carrentals.com?
  12. The app only seems to work on 3 ships
  13. Do You have a link to him? Couldn’t find it on google Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. We are also in concierge cabin, but traveling with my parents who are in a balcony cabin. Can we take them with us at the check in and to the embarkation lunch? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. Hi I Understand that there's a Premium Outlet Mall in Puerto Rico. We have a few days before the cruise, and would love to spend a few hours in an outlet mall (we always do that when we come to the US). Is it worth going there or are we better off waiting till Sint Maarten? If so, how do we get there from our hotel Double Tree by Hilton in Condado area?
