  1. other cruise lines include the tips with the beverage package. NCL is charging for $100 a day no matter how few drinks you order.
  2. a few years ago I put $6000 on our customs forms and were not charged anything. Depends on the port and inspector. Now no forms!
  3. I bid $310 pp for an aft penthouse from a mini suite. Is that a bid that might be accepted?
  4. I prebooked the Brazilian meat restaurant and with tip it cost more that our local one which isn't cheap. Can I cancel and get a refund on board? I might like to go to the Bistro a second time.
  5. we haven't had a customs form in the last 3 years. No one at immigration ever asked us how much we spent or what we bought. Not at Tampa, Miami or FLL.
  6. we stayed at the Hyatt Regency on points. It was just a few blocks from the bridge to the port and we got there very quickly.
  7. don't order crab cakes unless you are near the Chesapeake bay. You have no idea what kind of crab is being used. Wwe had some in New Orleans and it was Dungeness from the west coast. Big lumps but not much flavor.
  8. We haven't sailed Norwegian in over 10 years. Do they still have slots that pay out silver collector coins? If not, are they a collectors item? I think they were worth $20.
  9. do they sell Guy Harvey clothing on the ship?
  10. My partner likes to play on sea days as well as in ports we have been to.
  11. we were disappointed with all the Caribbean menus for this cruise. We ate at Sel de Mer twice and Canalleto 3 times. They now post a 2 pm MahJongg get together every day. Lots of people showed up every day. Great that they added it to the daily bulletin. I hope that this is fleet wide.
  12. I think HAL now has Dufry run all their shops. They are in a lot of ports especially where Carnival has made a fake port.
  13. I have used a regular TA and also an airline one where I can get up to 70K miles. Figuring at 2.5C a mile If purchased it's often better that the discount my TA gives me. I have also gotten OBCs and free tips incl. It pays to look around and get several quotes. The airline agent told me she books for most airlines and box stores and other travel sources. The miles can vary depending on the airline.
  14. there is no comparison between HAL and Seabourn. I would take S in a NY minute
