  1. They didn't bother you with a power strip? I haven't read anything negative on the NCL boards, but when I sailed Royal, they are a HUGE no-no! How many power outlets are there in a balcony room??
  2. We're going on the 11th....can't wait!!
  3. We're on BA in August as well, which sailing are you on?
  4. Glad to see in your port video that RCL's Adventure of the Seas was there! We were just on her in July 2018, had a blast!
  5. I agree that someone in Roatan would be much better off with $10 than I am, and trust me, not arguing about the $10 by any means. I just am wondering how I should approach the guy. Not sure if HE is the one who's giving the tour, or one of his guides. On another note, I did ask him to go see a village, so we can give school supplies to kids in need. So, yeah, I'm definitely paying it forward and doing our little part to help kids in need, which makes me feel good
  6. I found this private tour company in Roatan. Their excursions and prices seem to be fair and better than most. I was able to get a tour for 4 for $25pp plus whatever entry fees we may incur. I wanted to do the sloths/monkeys, so he gave me a name of a place that was $15pp, which is fine. He then asked me to pay via PayPal, so he would avoid taxes on his end. So, I click the link he sent me, sent him the $160 for the tour, and he responds back to me that he didn't get the whole $160 and PayPal took almost a $9 commission from him. He didn't ask me pay him the difference, but what am I to do? Do I say, well, that's not my fault, you gave me the link? Or do I just bite the bullet and give him $10US there? Don't think it is my problem that he's out money, but at the same time, don't want to piss him off as he's going to be transporting my family and I in a third world country...And it's certainly NOT the $10, but the principal.... Thoughts???

  8. Not only that, but the closer you get, the less "free at sea" is offered. My wife is going on the Sky to Cuba next month, and I was looking all the time for a price drop. Luckily the day we booked it was the last day they offered free air! Cruise fare stayed the same and more cabin categories got sold out. Its a coin toss....
  9. So your number was total, thank goodness!!!!! HAHA I sell fine wine and spirits for a living, so for that, I can keep up with my everyday drinking pleasures!!! 🙂 #firstworldproblems Thanks for the clarification
  10. Now I'm a heavy wine drinker, and love my great bourbons (as I'm sipping a Bulleit and Ginger right now), but you're saying that you paid $70pp per day? PLUS the $22 (I think) pp per day gratuities on the Free at Sea promo? Something doesn't add up. That's $92 (give or take) to drink. That seems awfully high. I thought I saw it was something like $30-$35pp per day for the PPBP. We're debating doing it IF it was under $500 total for the both of us @kboltwkreations we're going on BA in August, if you could please report back after your trip, I would definitely appreciate it!
  11. That place looks great! We were fortunate enough to have booked Maya Chan well in advance. They seem like amazing people, and have heard NOTHING but FANTASTIC reviews of the place. Glad you were able to find an alternative! (priced similarly as well). Keep it going, I'm leaving in 111 days, and chomping at the bit to get on that plane down to MIA!!
  12. I wish it was that easy, my wife wants to stay with connecting rooms, so we're sort of stuck with these category rooms. I tried to get a Mini-Suite and a B2 together, but nothing available. Mini-suite is the next higher priced room, so I'll just stay where I am and take the $65 and maybe buy myself a great bottle of Bourbon in duty free!
  13. I can't forget this thread....its like a trainwreck! Gotta hang out to see what happens!!!! 🙂
  14. OMG this thread is nuts...First off, where is the OP? One and done? I think it was truly just an opportunity to spark some debate and piss some people off, and to see who would offend who. According to past posts on this thread, the following people should be offended: LGBTQ, Non-LGBTQ, Caucasian, African American, Latino, Asian, Pan-American, Native Americans, Christians, Athiests, Muslims, Jews, Vaccers, Anti-Vaccers, and whoever else I may have offended by neglecting to mention.....Come on people! On another thought, I happen to be a Jewish male, thought I would be offended by the mention of Hasidic and Kosher groups, but then being a Non-Practicing Jew (Sorry if I offended anyone), I realize that I would be ostracized by them as well. Now, getting to the Anti-Vaccers, and the NYC talk, the whole big issue of the Measles outbreaks within the Hasidic and Ultra-Orthodox Community may or may not be what the OP is talking about, IF the OP's post is actually true. I would HOPE in all honesty that NCL would take warning about letting a large group of people on the ship knowing there's been an outbreak in those communities. Not that NCL has a requirement for a health inspection or doctor's note to be clear of Measles, but it is a concern.....
