  1. They essentially do give you $250 to pay part of your bill... They charge $500 for the two certificates and then they give you $250 back to pay part of the $500 they just charged. It really is quite simple to follow.
  2. There is also the option of doing a NCL tour that includes being dropped at the airport as well.
  3. Did they book the FREE/Reduced airfare offer or just book regular airfare through NCL along with the hotel? Multiple people, including myself, have been told when you book the Free/Reduced option that flying early or staying later is absolutely not an option. You must fly in the day of the cruise and return the day of debarkation. Someone above mentioned a diversion fee and I even asked about that as I booked a Rome cruise in 2020 with airfare and would love to fly in at least a day early to see Rome but we were told there was no option at all to do that. Now, if you just book regular airfare that is not part of the promotion, then yes, you can book pre and post cruise hotel along with your trip.
  4. The more I see it, the more it grows on me to. I remember when Breakaway was unveiled and I thought, OMG, that's crazy looking... But now I love the hull art of BA... I think NCL's hull art certainly makes them stand out among other ships in port.
  5. Ok, I'm going to be THAT person that dredges up a dead thread... I follow a couple of FTR:TBP performers on Facebook and one of them posted today that this is the final week for the show... The post makes it sound like it is indeed the show ending and not just his contract ending. Anyone seen any news about a new show taking its place on Escape?
  6. Technically, they are swapping deck space. The area that was used for laser tag on Bliss is becoming sun-deck space on Encore... And the area that was Spice H20 on Bliss, is actually becoming the Galaxy Pavilion with a new deck being built on top of that where the Laser Tag will be located. In the grand scheme of things, they are actually adding additional square footage to Encore...
  7. If you use the airfare directly through NCL, you don't have the option to fly in early or stay later unfortunately.
  8. We just booked a 7 day cruise from Rome using the reduced airfare and flying from Atlanta. Got it for $699 which is cheaper than what we normally find from Atlanta and it also included all other perks too.
  9. Twice on Epic and thoroughly enjoyed both times. To me, Epic has the best Thermal Suite in the fleet as well. The only downside is the bathroom set up but if you know what to expect before hand, it's really not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
  10. GOTCHA! I didn't realize you were on the TA and that's what you meant by not booking a flight from Miami. Makes so much more sense now. We're booked on the 24th departure so I'm just hoping everything stays on schedule and on track to keep that date. Fingers crossed. Robert
  11. They are keeping B&C and turning it into a combined and expanded Terminal C. The new terminal will be Terminal B upon completion.
  12. NCL still has a terminal.. Regardless. So you would only book the cruise if you knew the ship was actually docking at the new terminal?? I'm confused...
  13. I think it depends on timing of construction but should definitely be one of the first if not the first.
  14. Likely not happening... The underlying structure to support the weight of the track and cars is just likely not there without effective the weight and balance of the ship.
  15. Epic and newer I believe are all co-Ed with separate locker rooms. Older ships are mainly the ones that may have separate lounge areas/saunas/etc.
