  1. 1997 Carnival Fantasy I absolutely fell in love with cruising and have been hooked on it ever since. I'll be taking my 6th cruise in November of this year, assuming cruises are back up and running by then.
  2. Thanks so much MAPCruises. I leave for a 7 day Western Caribbean in 3 days, so this is hugely helpful.
  3. 5 more days left until my Western Caribbean cruise and it is going ... sooooo ... slowly ..., haha.
  4. I am going on the Getaway at the end of November. Does anyone know who is slated to replace Errol at GM? Also who are the other senior staff on there?
  5. Not saying you are incorrect. This was just the information I found online when researching what I could and could not bring on my upcoming cruise. I'm sure you know how information can be online. Good to know that you can bring extension cords with you. Makes things easier, haha. Thanks for the updated info @MotownVoice.
  6. When I say power box, this is the type I am thinking of: https://www.amazon.com/Cruise-Power-Strip-USB-Outlets/dp/B07BHVKPC3/ref=asc_df_B07BHVKPC3/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241973970700&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10511679454801631334&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9025389&hvtargid=pla-431025274938&psc=1. No power cord because I heard that Norwegian doesn't allow power cords, along with no surge protector.
  7. I use a lanyard that has a clear pocket to slide my card into.
  8. Definitely interested here, to hear your take on the 9/29 sailing if you go that route.
  9. Just to add on to this: 1. Make sure that if either of you take medicines, that you pack them in your carryon. As another poster stated, it can take some time for your luggage to get to you. 2. There aren't a lot of plugs in staterooms, so a power block is definitely a good thing to have. Make sure it is not a surge protector or power strip.You can get power blocks on Amazon, if needed. 3. If you plan on being around the water (either ship's pool or the ocean), a waterproof phone bag is not a bad investment (especially if you are clumsy like I am, haha). 4. Download Norwegian's cruise app before you leave for your cruise. I believe it will show you your reservations, as well as a schedule of activities on the ship. It also allows you to check your account and see where charges have been made. 5. As an adjunct to #4, if the two of you want to see any of the shows on the ship, reserve them now before you leave. While you can reserve once on the ship, and there is also an option to just show up and see if there are any seats available, either or both of these may mean you don't get a seat. 6. Have a really great time on your cruise. 😄
  10. On the Getaway, do you go to Guest Services to get the passes for Vibe?
  11. That brings back memories, Haha. The first cruise I ever went on was The Big Red Boat III. I was 12 and remember the preteen club and the friends I made. Great memories and I do remember thinking how massive the ship was. Compared to the other ships I've been on though, not so much. @mitsugirly Love your reviews. They help to keep me sane on my countdown to my Thanksgiving cruise. I love your descriptions of the places you've been and the things you saw and experienced on the ships.
  12. I think one of the slides has a sort of foam backboard you can use, but not the other one. Spice H20 is the adults only area. it has a hot tun, but no pool. Both pools on the Getaway are by the water slides. I believe one of them is designated adults only. Anyone, feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong.
  13. I am sailing on the Getaway in November and got my cabin assignment more than 120 days out. Our cabin is directly under the Garden Cafe, but as debgreg said, you are not really spending much time in the cabin anyway. The only places I could see being a problem is if you were under a bar/club or something else that might have a lot of noise, late at night. I tend to stay up late on cruises, so even a theater wouldn't be much issue with me, as the shows would be over before I was back in my room. Our cabin is very near stairs and elevators, plus is as near as you can get to being an aft-facing balcony without actually being an aft-facing balcony. I am very happy with the assignment. I've been on 5 cruises across three cruise lines and haven't had any issues with the rooms. All of that being said, it is still a toss up. There is no guarantee of where your room will be and it is unlikely the cruise line will let you change the room if you don't like where it is located.
  14. 1) If you look at ncl.com (https://www.ncl.com/cruise-ship/getaway/staterooms/mini-suite) it shows the listing of the mini-suites. I believe they list them from most desirable at the top (Spa Mini-Suite) to least desirable (Sailaway Mini-Suite). For a guarantee cabin you could be forward, mid or aft. 2) Mid-ship Mini-Suites are just above Sailaway Mini-Suites. You have things like mini-suites with larger balconies, aft-facing suites and Family Mini-Suites they are more popular.
