  1. We got of the Dawn on 3/31 after sailing in the Owners Suite w/ 2 balconies (10006). They already had started not doing the towel animals. Did not get a single one. I did not say anything after the first night because I thought "ok they are busy getting all of the rooms ready and delivering luggage)." They never did a single towel animal. They also mentioned they would appreciate it if we could reuse our towels and only requested a replacement every other day. All other services were excellent and the Butler took great care of us. Basic room service not so much.
  2. I thought the same except I received the same email(s). I am in a Owners Suite w/ 2 balconies on the Dawn. The only thing showed available to bid on were the two Garden Villas. Both of which were sold out. The people in the Garden Villas are not upgrading anywhere. I think sometimes they do it simply to gauge how much someone will spend on a room.
  3. Get a "Robert Kraft" extra special massage at the spa. 😊
  4. I would walk right on by without adding a tip.
  5. This i agree with. Basic transportation from point 1 to b is what the excursion cost is for. Taking me to the shorkeling spot is what the excursion cost is for. Assistance with equipment, tips on snorkeling, etc. is what generates a tip.
  6. And then everyone wonders why NCL did so bad in the "Cruise Critic" awards which are based on the whiners. I could not agree more.
  7. I did not think anything with surge protection was allowed.
  8. Didn't even think about the thank you cards. That is a better idea than just a plain white envelope.
  9. A new tipping question. I know that while staying in a suite, I will need to tip the Butler and Concierge as they are not included in the DSC. With the DSC now in full affect, do they still leave tip envelopes in the suite or do I need to bring a couple envelopes with me? Thanks.
  10. I sneak my own lobster in my luggage. I then cook it in my room with a hot plate I also sneak on. Who cares if it blows all of the circuits on my section of the ship. As long as I get my lobster.
  11. I make the "free at sea" perks free by removing the DSC to cover the costs of the "free" perks. Boom!! Two topics in one. Anything left over I use to purchase plastic straws that I then feed to the coke-addicted sea turtles that keep getting them stuck in their nose.
  12. Not sure where you are getting that information or if I am just misunderstanding you, but bad service that is not corrected, is an exact allowable reason given by NCL for the removal of the DSC. Not saying you should but if I received bad service that was not corrected, then I would remove a portion or the entire DSC as that is my only option. The entire group gets the benefit of good service and the entire group has to pay for bad service.
  13. What I like to do is have the DSC removed and get the equivalent cash in singles. I then invite all of the applicable personnel (room steward, waiters, etc.) to my room on the last day and throw it in the air so they can battle for the cash gladiator style. Trust me on this. It is better than in MMA fight you have ever witnessed.
  14. Um no. They are not like dining reservations. It even clearly states when looking at the excursions that popular ones will sell out prior to sailing.
  15. Hookers and blow. If you are in a suite, your concierge will hook you up. And straws. Lots of straws.
