  1. and still no respect for customers holding already a booking. It looks like loyalty is not rewarded at all exc.with the Latiudes program.  We pay months in advance, NCL use our cash to survive but we do not have access to all the promos and if we cancel/rebook we loose the penalty . Strange commercial behavior. I was glad I did it differently in my previous active life ....next year I will wait until the last moment to book; since the long-haul pax will not be cruising so soon, the risks are limited.

  2. I do not see why my country of residence should interfere in a simple customer recognition. The new rate is also valid for swiss residents therefore I just do not see why I cannot make use of it ..... lack of customer orientation for sure which a lot of fellow cruisers feel also in the past months ! we are talking of one week interval worth 640 EUR.... I am truly disappointed. 

  3. Booked last week on the Jade a Med cruise for June 20; prices dropped by 12% since then. I called this morning to get the new price and had a nice travel consultant I know from a long time ago and she said nothing she can do; If I cancel and rebook, I would loose the downpayment. Strange way to punish faithful customers !!

  4. if you like meat, then try the Moderno Churrascaria which is a typical Brazilian restaurant with Brazilian meat pieces as if you were there in Copacabana. So gooood ! they call it "rodizio" ; it is a eat as you can system where the waiters bring their long spice on your table and cut the portion in your plate ... a spectacle for itself ...I lived there a few years and it is fully comparable; great salad buffet to start with, etc; etc. But you should book well in advance ... enjoy !

  5. Thanks for the advice. We hadn't planned to take a tour to Olympia as we've been to Ephesus, Athens, Pompeii, etc and have heard that you really need a good guide and strong imagination to get a lot out of Olympia. We had planned instead to take the tourist train to the beach / winery and have a more relaxed beachy/port/shopping day like we had in Mykonos on our last cruise on the Spirit..


    Looking forward to reading the rest of your review!


    In Katakolo, we suggest either to take the touristic train or take a taxi to Kourouta Beach. Then you can stroll around the harbour followed by a lunch at a restaurant called - Fillia - right on the harbour. The restaurant is held by local girls who cook only local products. We were there 2 years ago and we can highly recommend it ( high ratings on Tripadvisor).

  6. On May 18, a brand new cruise terminal will be inaugurated in Civitavecchia. It is time ! The terminal Amerigo Vespucci will offer very modern facilities compared to the one used until now.


    Does anybody know wether NCL will be using this terminal as of Saturday 19 ?
