  1. The inconsistency of what passengers are told at different restaurants on the same ship---even during the same cruise (!)---is curious to say the least. I sailed the Escape from 8/25-9/1 with my wife and son (my wife and I had the SDP, my son did not). The three of us all dined at Cagney's and Moderno, and it was only my wife and me at Bayamo. Our experiences with the SDP: Cagney's: We were told that the SDP holders are limited to 1-1-1 (or was it 1-1-1-1, I don't remember). We were asked if our son would be ordering off the childrens' menu. We told our server that he w
  2. Not sure if it’s standard procedure or not, but I wasn’t asked to sign a sales slip on the drinks I ordered while still in NY on last week’s Escape cruise. The sales taxes were still added to my account.
  3. Next Sunday, 8/25, the afternoon high tide had Fort Wadsworth is at 3:50pm and the next low tide is at 10:59pm. (https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/noaatidepredictions.html?id=8519024&units=standard&bdate=20190801&edate=20190831&timezone=LST/LDT&clock=12hour&datum=MLLW&interval=hilo&action=monthlychart). To those who understand marine navigation much better than I do, does that suggest that the Escape will be "late" leaving NY next week?
  4. Although for at least some credit cards (BoA Cash Rewards in particular), the terms specifically state that any transaction made or processed outside of the US---even if denominated in USD---would incur a 3% foreign transaction fee. But reflecting the Miami address sure seems to me like a US-based transaction.
  5. I figured this may have been asked before, but I couldn't find any threads on the topic. I know that NCL is headquartered in Miami, and as far as I can tell the Escape is flagged in the Bahamas. When my onboard folio is settled at the end of an Escape cruise, will the charge "register" as a US or foreign transaction on my credit card?
  6. I wonder if waitstaffs' response to "How many appetizers/sides/desserts am I entitled to with SDP?" may be determined, in part, based on how many people at the table actually have the SDP. I'll be sailing Escape next month, and my wife and I have the SDP. Our son does not have the SDP, but he will be joining us at Cagney's. We'll pay a la carte for his steak of course, but it's probably frowned upon for my wife and I (with the SDPs) to order multiple appetizers/sides/desserts and then just pass some of them off to our son. I like to do what I think is ethical. My son wi
