  1. I just booked a Transatlantic cruise on the Jade from Rome to NYC, sailing October 31, 2020. I also started a roll call for this cruise, which can be found HERE
  2. Are we still able to do a search of roll calls by member name? I can no longer seem to bring that option up. Thanks.
  3. We are westbound from Copenhagen. Gothenburg was substituted for Amsterdam, due to traffic in that port. We plan on mainly strolling around Haga and having some local fish soup, but may stay on the ship if the weather is terrible.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I posted here, because different cruise lines may provide a free shuttle or have a different charge than NCL.
  5. We will be calling at the Port of Gothenburg on Norwegian Breakaway (changed from AMSTERDAM :loudcry:) on our upcoming Transatlantic cruise from Copenhagen to NYC in October 2018. Can anyone tell me what the recent cost was for using the shuttle into the city center from the Commercial Port (Skandiahamnen), where we are scheduled to dock? I called the NCL Shore Excursion Department and the person I spoke with was clueless.
  6. I want to know if, FROM EXPERIENCE, anyone can verify this statement concerning small, Cruise Critics members privately arranged tours. I find it hard to believe that the ship would assign a staff member to assist a NON NCL tour group of the ship because one member has Platinum status.
  7. Thanks. I have been looking for that chart. I am already almost to 40,000 after paying off our upcoming cruise. I thought I got TWO points for NCL purchases, but discovered I got THREE! Just got my new point statement yesterday. :D
  8. Without spending hours gleaning through this thread, can anyone here with experience in redeeming NCL Mastercard points tell me: What sort of upgrade can I get using 30,000 points? I am thinking a 2 category upgrade, but I am not sure about that. BTW ~ what, exactly, is a Mega double-cross upgrade? Sounds like a voodoo spell! :cool: Are there any specific upgrades available at 40,000 points? I know I could get a 30k upgrade and $100 in onboard credit, but that doesn't seem like the best way to use points. I am currently at almost 30k points total for my card and have to make the decision to keep using it to get more points, or to switch back to using my Delta AmEx card and/or my United Visa card for point accumulation. Thanks in advance for your suggestions and assistance! :)
