  1. Drop it off at the pier then go explore. Check in when you are ready to embark.
  2. Unless you get exceptional service from a certain crew member or want to ensure great service from a bartender, extra tips are not necessary.
  3. I’ve only even on three NCL cruises and have never been asked if I wanted to sit with others. My DH and I have just always been given a table for two.
  4. To avoid the 10% extra charge to exchange US currency, we converted money to Canadian before we left home. Private tour in a ‘58 convertible was wonderful! I preferred that to the walking tour we took after lunch. There are some wonderful paladars within walking distance of the terminal for dinner and it is very safe to wander in Havana. We chose to see Cabaret Parisien after dinner and I’m not sure if the show was not good or if we were just too tired after a long day, but we left early. i loved the day we had and wished for more time to experience more of the country.
  5. I was recently on the Sky with the new Premium Plus Beverage Package and found it to be worth the extra money. The Sun and Sky have many premixed drinks since it’s all included, so asking for the same drink with Premium liquor, it was made fresh each time. Having bottled water on the ship tasted much better than the water served from the coolers at the bar all day and we always got bottles to take each time we left the ship to tour Havana. ( we were on and off 3 separate times) We didn’t plan on using the tour credit in Havana, since we were able to book for much cheaper on our own, but on Stirrup Cay, the credit practically paid for our snorkeling. Din er in La Cucina would have been almost $100 with the sparkling water we tried and the bottle of wine that was included with the PPBP. Bas, decide if you will take advantage of the extras and see if the added cost is worth it.
  6. I called NCL prior to our cruise to say we were celebrating our anniversary. A card was waiting in our room we could bring to dinner for a cake. We never needed to bring it because the night we dined in La Cucina the hostess greeted us with, “I see it’s your anniversary, congratulations!” A cake was brought to the table during dessert.
  7. We were in Havana in April. We purchased our visas through NCL and took a private tour. Nobody checks what your visa says. You hand it in at customs the first time you disembark. After that, you’re free to come and go as often as you wish, no questions asked.
  8. APDMOM, you sure do your homework! Thanks for the charts and advice.
  9. Newbie here with Royal Caribbean. I know NCL’s fares drop the closer you get to sail dates I would like to try Royal Caribbean for my next cruise and was wondering if the same thing applies. Thanks for any info you can share.
  10. Yes, he can still pay the difference.
  11. Call NCL and ask. You will still have to pay at least what your bid was.
  12. I took an excursion last year with Bermuda Byways incorporating many sights with the history of the island. 6 hour tour includes lunch and costs $100 per person.
  13. To check how many cabins are available in a certain category, go to ncl.com and do a mock booking. You will be able to see what’s available when you “pick” your stateroom.
