  1. On another thread, a $14.50 pp/pd DSC cost was mentioned. Is this an extra fee on top of reservation and pre-paid gratuity?
  2. Hi all! Heading out on the Epic on 20 Apr with a group of 20. We have 7 cabins so we got the NCL group cruise where each cabin gets 2 perks, regardless of cabin type. Personally it's my wife, my 2 boys (ages 15 and 12), and myself. We chosen the pre-paid gratuity for my wife and I plus the adult drink package, again for the wifey and I. Our plans are prior to cruising, or perhaps day of, adding the pre-paid gratuity and teen soda package so we're all taken care of for taxes and drinks. Are these packages worth it or should we consider something else? We typically don't drink many soda's, juices, etc so just wondering if there's value in another perk. Trenton
  3. Ready2cruzagain....most of us are likely staying at different hotels. I believe my family is using a hotel which offers a park/cruise shuttle to the port. I appreciate the info. As stated, first time on a cruise. Since we're a group, each cabin gets 2 perks. We're using the adult drink package for my wife and I plus the pre-paid gratuity for my wife and i. Either before we board, or once on ship, i'm buying the teen soda package and pre-paid gratuity for my boys. Outside of any shopping/casino's/excursions/perhaps meal plus ups....are there any hidden costs that I need to know about?
  4. We're driving down to Port Canaveral the day before (Friday) and grabbing a room at a nearby hotel. So many questions.... 1. Should the group head over to the cruise port together? 2. What time should we head over? 3. Is it easy to reserve a daily dining time for the group at one of the complimentary resteraunts? I don't know what I don't know about cruising but my family and I are super excited. Thanks for any tips, tricks, or other recommendations!

    First time cruiser

    Hello all! I'm the group leader organizing a group cruise, aboard the NCL Epic from Port Canaveral in April. This is the first cruise for many within the group, but especially my family (wife, 2 boys, and I). We're driving down to Port Canaveral the day before (Friday) and grabbing a room at a nearby hotel. So many questions.... 1. Should the group head over to the cruise port together? 2. What time should we head over? 3. Is it easy to reserve a daily dining time for the group at one of the complimentary resteraunts? I don't know what I don't know about cruising but my family and I are super excited. Thanks for any tips, tricks, or other recommendations!
  6. Greetings all! Unless you count a Navy ship, first time cruiser here. I have some many questions but for here...how/where do we make group (traveling with 20 people) dining reservations at one of the complimentary dining rooms? We're sailing aboard the Epic on 20 Apr 2019. Thank you! Trenton
