  1. We sailed the Sun but it has been a while. I do not recall ever having an especially long wait for any seating at any meal. It really is just luck of the draw though. If you prefer to dine at the same time a lot of others on your crusie do, there could be some wait. However based on the size of the ship and the seating capacity of the MDRs I would thknk you would be OK. If you do run into longer waits. Ask the crew member handling the seating what the slower times are and maybe adjust your dining time accordingly. I think you will enjoy your NCL cruise. All of ours have been fantastic!
  2. I hopr hat you all have a fantaxtic rtime on yoru cruise. We have found that NCL cruises are one of the best vacation experiences out there, Enjoy your time abord the ship!
  3. How manu are usually in the Haven? Normally about the same number that booked the Haven for the cruise in question! 😉
  4. Big difference vetween NEED and SHOULD. If you are talking specialty dining, no you do not NEED to but yes you SHOULD. If you are talking the MDT, you cannot make reservations. It is first coem first served.
  5. You have that 100% backwards! The two free meals with FAS are NOT sharable and no voucher. They are noted on your key card and only you can use them. The latitide meals are a set oy vouchers which will be in your cabin. You found out wrong.
  6. Only you can answer that for yourself. "Worth it" is highly subjective. Look at the cost of buying what you are asking about and see if you think it is worth the price, As to the origianl question, NO.
  7. I prefer my steaks and various cuts of beef prepared medium rare, NOT burnt to a crisp. I guess I must have caveman blood in me according to the OP! Enjoy gnawing on your shoe leather....
  8. It is quite possible that the price you were looking at on line was the cruise fare only and the price quoted on the phone was the to final price including things such as the port fess/taxes, insurance, FAS gratuities, and possibly the DSC. No scam or false advertising. Just a misunderstanding on your part at what you were looking at.
  9. Look at your on board account once on the ship. The amount of unspent OBC will be listed and broken down as as far as a refundability. It will be updated as it is applied to purchases.
  10. Well said. Refundable can also offset the DSC or ANY charges to your account.
  11. They don't try to give you anything. They bring out what they have ready. Just let them know what you want and it will be there shortly. If you want a particular meat cooked to a specific degree of doneness, simply ask. I like my steak medium rare (I guess according to the OP that makes me a caveman, LOL), and when I ask for it that way that is exactly what I get. BTW I fixed your post in my quote!
  12. No need to "complain" at all. SImply tell your server what type of meat you wnat and hwo you wnat it cooked. He will bring it. That pineapple rocks!
  13. You can request exactly what you want how you want it cooked and you will get it.
  14. You can have as many as is indicated on the deck plan for the specific cabin. Cabins hold anywhere from 1 to8 people on most ships. You cannot have more people than the capacity of the cabin in question though.
  15. Forgot to mention that the one food item that I did not care for is the item they CALLED chili. As most folks know, chili is a MEAT dish and real chili does NOT have beans in it. That is an American bastardization of chili. They did not have real chili. In fact in most chili cook-off competitions, benas are forbidden. To make matters worse they used this non-chili on the chili dogs as well. NCL is not the only organization to make this error though. Other than that the food was great!
  16. On NCL there is ONE 'dress up or not' night but no formal nights. There are two dining options on some ship that have a not so strictly enforced dress code of a collared shirt for men. However you are free to dress as you please otherwise. There are cetainly no dining options that require a suit or tie at least not since 2011 when I first cruised. I have only been on 19 NCL cruises so far, #20 is later this year. I've never seen any rude behavior. To the contrary I have seen nothing but very kind and thoughtful passengers. Luck of the draw I guess.
  17. My family and I had an amazing time on thgis cruise. We were in balcony cabins on deck 11 and 14. The crew took very good care of us and were constantly checking in on us to see if we needed anything at all. The sapphire dinner with the officers was great. We ate specialty dining all other nights and the food was perfect each night. We had breakfast at the Local the first day and my wife was very pleased with how perfectly her food was prepared. We asked for the chef to come see us and I gave him a $5 tip for how well the meal was prepared. A few days later we went back and they were already on the lunch menu. I had a real taste for breakfast and Roman (the chaef) prepared eggs and an english muffin for me even though breakfast had stopped over an hour prior. I tipped him anotehr $5. The ports were all very good and we had a blast at each one. We did not care too much for the comedy show. It was OK but no real comedu IMHO. Chior of Man was really good. All in all it was a fantastioc trme and I won over $2,000 playing poker! 🙂 We will be sailing again some time later this year.
  18. They are not cutting it clsoe IF everything goes perfectly. we all know how much of a riak it is to ASSume that it will do so. Flying into the port teh day of teh cruise is always a risk. It is highly advisable that they fly in a day early.
  19. There are no prepaid gratuities, They are referring to the Daily Service Charge (DSC) and yes it is usually a legit offer (as long as it si frm a legit TA). If you take that offfer, NCL will not charge you the DSC on your cruise.
  20. Pickleball, isn't that the game someone invented so the kids who always got picked last for real sports will have something to do? 🙂 🙂 🙂
  21. If you thought that CCL was good, you will absolutely love NCL. NCL is far and away a better cruise experience than CCL.
  22. The title of your thread is misleading. The deck may have been overcrowded on YOUR sailing. That does not mean the deack"is overcrowded". If everyone who has access to the deck (or any otehr place on a ship) attempts to use it at the same time, there will be overcrowding. We did not run into any such issues on any of our Haven cruises on the Joy. Sorry it happened to you.
