  1. We are sailing on Breakaway 12/14/19-12/21/19 and I wanted to reserve one of these villas. However, they are not showing up in my excursions for GSC anymore. Did they remove them as an option or is this an indication that these Villas are sold out? A few months ago I thought these were Haven Villas? I'm confused.
  2. Has anyone ever known of a family of 5 staying in a DOS on the Breakaway? The specs state the max capacity is 4. The actual sq ft is almost double our reserved H4 2bdrm which are currently sold out on our sailing and we have 3 small kiddos (7, 4, 3) that could share the sofa bed. Just seeing if this is possible.
  3. Must of missed that when I was reading this thread. Thank you!
  4. I'm a bit confused. We are staying in the Haven (family of 5) and when I went to book the GSC Ocean View Villa for our December 14-21 Breakaway Cruise it is charging $699 per person. For a grand total of $3,495.00. Please tell me this is an error? We stayed in one of these for our Ruby Princess cruise back in 2011 and paid an amount similar ($699 to rent the entire villa, not pp). It was the highlight of our cruise, so we wanted to something similar for this cruise. If it is $699/pp that's insane.
  5. We are on a BA eastern sailing 12/14-12/21 with 3 kids. We booked prior to our 2019-2020 school schedule being released based on prior calendars. You would know school decided only to be closed that Friday. So he will miss. We booked due to the lower pricing for this sailing. We are 16 across from the Haven pool. This is our first sailing with kiddos and we hope that they will be in splash academy for the hours it is opened.
  6. When we booked we elected to take the NCL trip insurance. After reading here, it is much less expensive purchasing it on your own. I think we are paying $818/total for our family of 5. Using the website recommended above, I can get better coverage and the premium is half of the cost. Do you know know if you can cancel the trip insurance through your cruise line? I messaged NCL but they cannot help me since we used a TA. I just wanted to be sure we could get it refunded or removed from our balance prior to bothering her. TIA!!
  7. How did you get NCL to refund you? Did you have to call when you saw the price go down? That is great to know! Thank you!!
  8. Not according to the research I've done. The only other option is an oceanview and that is way too small of a cabin for the 5 of us. Plus no privacy. https://www.cruisemapper.com/cabins/Norwegian-Breakaway-584
  9. We are on the same cruise Dec 14-21 currently staying in the Haven. I feel forced to book the Haven due to having 3 kids. Due to my kids ages, I don't feel comfortable booking 2 rooms. The Haven suites allow up to 5 people. Maybe this is why there are more kids in the Haven? I booked our cruise with the high pricing. I'd love book a cheaper room and bid up, but the only way we could do that is to book 2 rooms. Then we'd risk the rooms being separated. So yeah I am one cruisers paying an absurd amount of money for our Haven suite. This is our first time cruising NCL. We've been on Princess and RCCL pre-kids. We were trying to find a kid friendly ship. If there is a better ship where I can have a better experience for less money, I am all ears!! I checked MSC but every time I put in 5 people it says the rooms are all booked. Leads me to believe they don't have a room that accommodates a party of 5. Our cruise has the 6 free, we opted to drive instead of fly (700 pp was ridiculous), and it was around 9500 w/out gratuities. Which boils down to 1900 pp. I'm reading all these negative reviews and thinking I should cancel. One of the most important things is the Splash Academy being limited. If we can't get my kiddos into their respective age group programs it will make for a miserable trip.
