  1. FYI depending on your dates traveling, I read somewhere Dunking of the wench is not year round. We are going in April and I know it is not performing then.
  2. We bought the spa pass. We have never used the spa on any ship. I saw folks suggesting putting your swimsuit in your carry on so you can go as soon as the spa opens. Wondering if there are secure lockers in the spa? Also is it like going to a YMCA? You change in a locker room and then walk around in your swimsuit? Sorry to be such a dunce but I have no experiemce how this works or how to prepare.
  3. We just booked unlimited passes today on the Gem out of Boston for end of April for $139 per person.
  4. Will they serve you drinks in the spa? Can you bring in food?
  5. No. They do have laser tag. FYI You only get to play laser tag 10 minutes though. Guest Services told my husband that laser tag was an hour so he signed up himself and our 2 adult sons to play. They were quite surprised to find out play only lasted 10 minutes. Felt it was definitely not worth the cost.
  6. Sorry I do not. I scanned through all the pictures posted over on the Everything...Norwegian Joy Westernization 2019! board topic. These are the menus I found there. Only the Local is complimentary. American Diner page 15 Ocean Blue p 20 Q p 20 District Brewhouse p 20 Starbucks p 22 Cellars p 24 The Local p 24 (they also had a "special of the day" each day in addition to this menu) La Cucina concierge lunch menu p 30
  7. The menus shared here by Coloradocruiselovers88 that I posted on another thread are the full menus served in the La Cucina at breakfast and lunch for Concierge guests. They were the exact same menu choices each day. Menus were one page for breakfast and 2 pages for lunch. If you read close under Morning Specials, they did have pancakes and french toast, just had fancy names! At breakfast, they also had a small self serve buffet with tons of excellent fresh fruit, cheese, yogurt parfaits, pastries, etc and they brought a basket of pastries to your table as well. The food and servi
  8. The fare was about $35 each way. That covered four of us riding in the cab. The park only allows certain taxi companies actual access all the way into the park and up to the parking lot by the Visitor Center. If you take one of those companies, the cab will collect a visitor fee per person on top of that (I can't remember exactly how much....around $12 I think). If you take a cab company that does not go all the way into the park, you do not have to pay that visitor fee. The park did not collect it themselves. The cab will drop you off about a 10 minute walk from the visitor ce
  9. This is the map they gave us as we exited the ship. I really didn't pay attention as we grabbed a cab to Mendenhall Glacier right as we got off the ship and then another drove us straight back.
  10. Who knew? Thanks for the tip! (That could be helpful if I was smart enough to know what time zone we were in, lol. They never told us that part).
  11. We just sailed last week on the Joy. There were people wearing sandals and shorts throughout the cruise both inside and into port some days. At the same time others were in sweatshirts and jeans. It just depends on how hot/cold you run normally. Inside is always comfortable, just wear what you would as if you went to a restaurant at home if it was in the 50's outside. The staff and servers wore long sleeves and long pants inside. Outside on deck the staff wear jackets. On the Joy, there are places outside on the decks that have clear plexiglass shields to block the wind and
  12. They were the exact same menus every day. In addition, at breakfast they had a small self serve buffet set up with fresh fruit choices, yogurt parfaits, etc that you could help yourself to while they cooked your order and they would bring a variety of pastries in a basket to the table. My family ordered the steak often. Said it was the best place to get steak on the ship. I finally listened and ordered the steak and eggs on the last day and wow the steak just melted in my mouth.
  13. For our cruise last Sept, I emailed the address given on the FAQ part of NCL website to request distilled water and recieved a confirmation email within a couple of days. The water was in our stateroom when we boarded. For our Alaska cruise last week, I emailed again. Did not hear anything for two weeks. Called them to follow up on it and spoke with a representative who said they didn't do it by email anymore but she assured me she put a notice on my account to have distilled water in the room. About two weeks before sailing, I received a confirmation email saying they received my
  14. We also had clock issues last week on the Joy. Somehow my husband's phone got pinged in Seattle while still in port and located him in Singapore. He had Singapore time on his phone for 2 days until it pinged again in Ketchikan and finally reset itself. We were advised in the Freestyle Daily to turn our clocks ahead or back an hour the night before arriving in certain ports. Since our phones did not get signals at sea this didn't work automatically. We set a phone timer instead of alarms to wake us in the mornings just to be sure we got up when we hoped to. I did have on an old fashi
  15. The master bedroom mattress in our concierge family suite this past week was very comfortable. My husnband and I had no complaints on the comfort. May not have been a pillow top exactly like a Haven as I haven't been in one to compare but certainly not a rock hard mattress. While I did not lie on one of the bunk mattresses in the second bedroom, my sons say it was "not stellar but fine" (coming from previous college campus experiences, I'm taking that as better than a dorm, lol)
