  1. The Dawn left Marseille on August 23 and just passed through the straights at Messina, Sicily. Where is she headed?
  2. We booked a TA on the DAWN for April 2022 using both the 10% off and cruise next certificates.
  3. As of today January 15, the booking systems are down for maintenance until Monday. Is this a sign that cancellations are imminent? Also, if I try to do a mock booking for the April TA on the Jade, I get the message that all cabins are sold out which usually indicates that a cancellation is imminent.
  4. We took on fuel at Cartagena. My cabin was mid-ship, port side, and the fuel barge was docked against the ship from shortly after we docked until shortly before we left. Although we were off the ship most of the day, we saw the fuel barge below us before we left. I didn't realize that we needed a different fuel for the canal.
  5. I did a 21 day NYC to SF cruise on the Gem. I believe that the Breakaway, Bliss and Encore all would use the new locks where as the Joy, Pearl and Jewel would use the old locks. I like the historical aspect of the old locks. Westbound traverses Gatun Lake in the morning where as Eastbound it is in the afternoon. I prefer watching the sunset over the Pacific.
  6. I have a TA cruise booked for Apr 2021 on the JADE. My sister is my travel agent, and she is constantly monitoring the price of my cruise to see if she can get me a better deal. On Friday with the release of the increased OBC offer, the price of my cabin (class BA balcony on deck 10) is over $1,300 higher than the price we have booked. Is this how they enforce the proposed reduce capacity of the ships to account for social distancing?
  7. Here is what was just posted on CNBC: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/05/norwegian-cruise-line-says-theres-substantial-doubt-about-its-ability-to-continue-as-a-going-concern.html
  8. Pictures of room 10586 on the Gem from January
  9. On the GEM, room 10586 has a chair between the bed and the balcony. I was on the GEM this past January, and I believe that the JADE has a similar layout.
  10. With this order, no cruise ships will sail from US ports until at least July.
  11. I tried to take advantage of this offer for my cruise in Jan 2020, and the customer service reps claim that it only applies to new bookings. I booked this cruise 20 months ago, and prefer to prepay rather than get hit with a big bill at the end of the cruise.
  12. First time on NCL for my wife and I, and we are taking the 20 day Panama Canal Cruise from NYC to San Francisco on Jan 4, 2020. As part of the promotional credits--i.e. Free at Sea, I received the following: Shore Excursions Promotional Credit; I also received another Shore Excursions Promotional Credit for the Exceptional Voyage promotion. Both of these credits are for $50/stateroom, and are in my name. If I take an excursion that is less that $50/person, will I receive the full $50 credit for the excursion? There are a couple of excursions that we considering that cost less than $50 on this cruise.
