  1. Sports bar....no you cannot Every other restaurant...desert yes, never had a problem Buffet...dont think they have containers
  2. Last month on the Jade I ordered it on two nights in the italian restaurant using the SDP...no problem at all
  3. So 50% penalty would be of the cruise fare only...you should get taxes and port fees and even the service charge for the "free" drinking package back (maybe even a CruiseNext deposit)...correct? So for example on one of my next cruises...5700 total...but if I substract the above...3800 left...so that would mean I would loose 1900...still more than 900 less than what you might think first... so only 1/3...not 50% Maybe that helps you a bit...
  4. Free wifi is only 250min...$125 or so
  5. But sometimes...it is not in your cabin...like our last cruise..now try to get to the CruiseNext consultant when you have a 6pm reservation and want to use your coupon...ouch...
  6. From NCL: Not only will you have access to all the ship has to offer, you'll enjoy the personal service of a concierge and 24-hour butler throughout your entire stay. As I said b4 if they go beyond the expected...fine...but if not...I dont tip em.. But that is just me
  7. So you pay for the haven and Butler and concierge usagage are incl. So I only tip if they go beyond the expected...but what is beyond... Bringing you snacks...no Room service (not a whole dinner...maybe some pizza or chicken wings)...incl...$1 or 2 per order...just like in a normal balcony... Now if they would bring me drinks...but they are not incl in the beverage package...so I rather go myself... Escorting you around the ship to a show or shore excursion or disembark...that should be included... Same for the concierge...making reservations for a restaurant...or show...should be included... Now if they do something special... so what is really special? Waiter in the haven restaurant usually get nothing.. most of the time there is someone else...so who do you tip...and what about the chefs?...they do the hard work...if the steak is bad a nice smile wont help me Same for the bartender...if they are really good...$10...but since we dont drink alcohol... hell they have a hard time making virgin drinks ...ouch... Last cruise in la cucina...we ate there 4 times...11 day trip... very good food...bartender made the best virgin drinks in board...we slipped her $20 tue last evening...because they were really special... And the Service charge is also higher in the haven... So on a 7 day trip...just normal stuff... Maybe 20-30 for the room steward...if he is fix and has our room ready when we go to bed... Butler...maybe 20...if we do use room service... Concierge...I really dont know...but so far never more than 20...and when I think back even that was too much... But thats just me
  8. Yes just hand over the coupon and you should be good... On my last cruise I used the coupon At le Bistro just like before...well last evening we ate at la cucina...and all our SDP credits were used... No problem they fixed it when I explained I used my platinum coupon in le Bistro...but even stranger...I dont know how this could happen...I did check the le Bistro receipt later that evening...and it clearly stated...platinum in it...I am pretty sure it did...
  9. Thank you... That would be perfect... I do think 2 nights at BC are enough though during our 7 das cruise... But I am not sure...since this will be our first on MSC and YC...and my wife likes her filet almost every night (only cruising NCL normally), but from what I read you can a filet every night in the YC restaurant even if it is not in the menu that night.
  10. Btw Anyone know how the dining experience works with the Tomahawk steak...50% off and I loose my main course and my wife too? Or van my wife order her Filet mignon as usual? Thx
  11. Now that makes sense that they change it. For our upcoming cruise in may it says online I can buy a dining package for Butcher's Cut. So I guess they change it until may. Well that would be fine with me.
  12. So what meal can you get on the MSC Fantasia?
  13. Last cruise on the Jade even worse We booked onboard, so I say to the shore excursion guy...my and I are both Platinum, plz dont fort the latitudes discount...1 excursion is not available...the rest is...so he books it... I go up to my cabin...check the onboard account...well no discount applied... Later that afternoon I talked it over with my wife what excursion we would like to do instead of the one that was now available... Guess what I talk to the same guy again...and seems to remember me...tell him about the platinum discount...and also dont forget the discount on the other excursions ... I go up to my cabin...and guess what...finally everything is correct... I gotta say to get you latitudes discount is always a hassle...they have to fix it somehow!
  14. First; It is the breakayway, not escape Is it a spa suite or normal one? If spa take that one and use you $500 CruiseNext deposit I would not do the 2nd for the bucks and 3rd scares me a bit too 4th could be good one too, if you do like meditaranian food and italien style and from what I read and saw the overall YC complex is nicer there. Since I am Platinum with NCL (Black with MSC too) and condisdering the route and all I would go NCL with a close second to MSC GL
