  1. Save yourself the call. ANY includes sail away.
  2. balconies and above is typical. ANY stateroom is rare. understand $100 OBC is also rare, but not the point i'm making.
  3. being able to apply to any stateroom is also rare.
  4. MDRs will likely have a mixed menu of holiday dishes and regular items. Winter decorations (not necessarily christmas) are throughout the ship, but it's not over-the-top or corny. specialty restaurants may have the least of that though.
  5. Go karts were closed for every port on our Bliss cruise last december, and the weather couldn't have been better. I believe they opened at 5pm. My advice would be to schedule go karts and laser tag first thing when you get on the ship. So you at least have a first round confirmed. Scheduling fills up fast with unlimited pass riders.
  6. You can use your deposits to book a shorter Cuba cruise. NCL lifts the 6 days or longer rule for that destination.
  7. Hawaii Beverage Package is applicable to Pride of America sailings only.Applicable to guests 1-2 on the reservation. Eligible guests are entitled to two beverages per person per transaction. Includes a variety of beverages up to $15 USD retail price.Also includes fountain soda, freshly squeezed juice, bottled water (flat and sparkling), non-alcoholic beer, and specialty coffee (specialty coffee inclusion shall be limited to dining rooms only).Does not include: specialty coffee outside of the restaurants, room service, mini bar purchases, or vending machines.Guest's check may reflect applicable VAT and/or taxes for certain ports or itineraries.Guest is responsible for 20% gratuities on the retail value of the Hawaii Beverage Package ($19.80 USD per person per day) prior to cruise.Retail value of Hawaii Beverage Package is $99.00 USD per person per day. Package price is subject to change.The purchase of any alcoholic drinks within the Hawaii Beverage Package may, in certain individual circumstances, be restricted in accordance with Hawaii’s Intoxicating Liquor Law and applicable local rules and regulations.No substitute for package if guest cannot consume all beverages included.
  8. Not the case on the two cruises I have booked. Excursion rates are same. 🙂
  9. I've seen blueberry chilled soup on the buffet within the last year. I think it was on Epic, but may have been Escape.
  10. I cruised on Epic semi recently and found the staff to be some of the best I had encountered on NCL ships and I've cruised on getaway, escape and bliss. All were very personable and attentive. And that's not to say they aren't on the other ships. moral of the story: keep an open mind. 🙂
  11. Favorite NCL excursion in San Juan? Considering the Twilight Zipline.
  12. This was only an option for POA sailings up until recently. Definitely something to take advantage of now that it's opened up to the rest of the fleet.
  13. Blocking for bids? As opposed to leaving them open to sell at full price? Holding them for a group seems likely.
  14. FYI - "all inclusive" is how NCL brands their cruises with free open bar (i.e. sky/sun 3-6 day cruises, and ALL staterooms are eligible, even sail away categories). --- If you book one of these sky/sun cruises and opt into the "premium plus" drink offer they have as part of Free at Sea (i.e. not eligible to Sail Away), you forego some of what would be an upcharge otherwise (that's obvious). Did you take the premium plus perk? Curious whether a shot would be covered if you had. Although the terms for the package state it includes only beverages "by the glass."
