    NCL Suite Amenities List

    This may not be a complete answer, but following is a list of suite amenities as of 10/19/18 for an SB suite on our TA on the Star leaving Rome on 11/5/18. Hope this is helpful.

    Thanks dexddd. GREAT news! I previously received my luggage tags, but can easily update them to reflect the new room assignment (due to the short time remaining before departure). I had also previously emailed them re: room requests, but I will email again re: the liquor/wine. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the info dexddd. Really looking forward to this trip. Do you know if NCL still offers the three bottles of liquor with this room and if so, can they be switched for wine?

    We just received an email confirming our upgrade from a Family Suite on 12 to an Owner’s Suite with Two Balconies on 10 for the TA on Star leaving Rome on 11/5/18. Curious if others are also getting upgrade notifications for this sailing. Hope everyone has good luck with their bids. 👍

    Are Mini-Suites on Jade noisy?

    We placed a bid and were upgraded to a mini-suite on 11 under the Garden Cafe on the Jade in 10/17. It may have been 11090, but I am not absolutely certain about the stateroom number. Anyway, we were lucky that our room was under a carpeted table area of the GC. We never heard any noise except for one morning there was a brief rumbling sound from what we guessed was some sort of cart passing through the GC. Otherwise the room was perfectly quiet. As I said, we were lucky as this was a bid upgrade and we had no input regarding the specific room selection. If you decide to bid, I hope you get a great room.

    Star deck 12 room info

    Hello everyone. We prefer an out of the way room far forward or aft, but this was a late booking, so the choices were limited. We’re currently in 12030, a family suite, no balcony for the TA Leaving Rome/Civitavecchia on Nov. 5, 2018. We have an option to switch to 12512 which has a balcony. I understand the balcony space reduces the room size. I believe I read that the balcony is enclosed. Is that correct? I read some comments regarding noise from the jogging track above on 13. Anyone had a problem with that in either room? Any issues with hallway foot traffic noise heading from the elevator to the pool on 12, or from the bar or whatever else is above on 13? Any other comments on these rooms or general area would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    1st time I've seen the Upgrade bid offer

    I had the same situation on the Jade 10/17. I reserved through a TA. I received two upgrade offers from NCL, placed bids on both and moved up to a mini-suite... all directly with NCL The fact that I reserved through a TA seemed to be irrelevant. Worked out beautifully (and economically) for us. Good luck.

    Bidding for an Upgrade?

    On a 10/17 Jade cruise we bid $600 on a mini-suite upgrade from an ocean view. To our surprise we got mini-suite #11090. Initially we were concerned because this stateroom is under the Garden Café buffet, but turns out 11090 in under the carpeted table/sitting area. We never heard any noise from above, or elsewhere and couldn’t have been happier with the stateroom and the bidding process.
  15. We got off the Jade 10/26/17. They showed the following three movies in the theater. Monument Men BFG (Big Friendly Giant) King Arthur (Don't recall the exact title.) Hope this is helpful.
