  1. Thank you for posting this! It made me go (yet again) to double check for any price drop--not only did I get the same cabin for $977 less (yes there was indeed another price drop), I also got this extra $50 off excursions!
  2. Thanks for this link! My excursions just started showing. For GSC, The villas show but not the cabanas yet. My CTC said they will open in a couple of weeks. Weird thing is, I was able to see them on this link but the small cabanas are more expensive than the large ones! How/why would that be??
  3. I have one for too. He stopped enjoying cruises, got bored with them and has not been on one in 4 years. He is 64 (going on 94). He now prefers to stay home and take “staycations” and not leave our cats! The heck with that, I’m not dead yet! So I am taking my sister on a cruise in February (she has never been on one except a 1 nighter) and it will be a relief to be on a cruise with someone not grumpy, lol. I think there is a group of us out there, with grumpy significant others who would rather stay home. We should unite and all cruise together! 😃 you have a great attitude, girl. You will get through this and then go have a great time and breathe a bit easier in the fresh ocean air, whenever you do go.
  4. Well said. I would be too. OP, this is disappointing for sure. Having a restaurant in the Haven itself is a big perk. Some people don't use it much, so ok. They would be fine about it. But a lot of people look forward to having it right there even if they only eat a couple of dinners there and that is indeed part of what they thought they were paying for. I'm sure having Cagney's as your dedicated restaurant will be nice, but it is just not the same.
  5. I will be requesting them a couple of nights on the Bliss in February. Takes them a couple of minutes and they love the happiness they bring. If they say no, then so be it. But I will be asking. The “already overworked” description of stewards is kind of silly, IMO. Especially now that they are pretty much only doing them by request.
  6. Considering they were not ships with a fully useable adult sun deck, I would agree with you if I thought of going on one of them again. But even if there are a couple of them on the Bliss, there is plenty of other adult space with hot tubs to retreat to. That makes it well worth the odds for me.
  7. And away we go... incoming!
  8. I have been in the Haven three times (all 10-day cruises in Jan or Feb, NOT during school breaks) and only once were annoyed by the kids, there. It was a pack of 4 and they seemed always to be in the hot tubs or pool, which in itself is not a problem of course. The problem was that anytime we also went in the pool or hot tub, they got upset and would accusingly ask "Why are YOU in here?" I would just calmly say, "Because it's my hot tub/pool too." They would huff and get out and shoot us dirty looks. Never any parents around. Didn't ruin the cruise but it was pretty annoying to have to deal with every time we wanted to use a pool or hot tub. The ships we were on did not have a hot tub on the adult sun deck. But even if it did, that is bad and rude behavior that we want to avoid as much as possible.
  9. And what difference does it make if it is nice to know or not? Ha ha, just kidding. 😉
  10. Clearly NCL has their reasons. If they told you what it was they’d just get a lot of this sort of argument. Bottom line is it’s their ship, they make the rules. People who choose NCL have to deal with their rules. I guess I just don’t get what the big deal is and why some people expend SO much energy fighting this sort of thing. It’s a cruise. It’s a vacation. Relax and enjoy! And if you don’t like the rules, go elsewhere. Am I wrong on this?? Jeez.
  11. Carry on and declare it. Pay the corkage fee and it’s yours.if it’s in your checked bag, they will hold it until the end of the cruise I am pretty sure.
  12. Well one must be Latitude Rewards promo. 20% off, I believe? Dash Sale is up to $500 OBC. Easyfare is a code for TAs to get the best fare. That was just from a quick Google search.
