  1. So, I don't have to book tickets in advance right? I can just go to the ferry booth and book the moment I get off the cruise ship?? Can you please share the directions on how to get to the Stavanger Ferry from the cruise port? Thanks!
  2. Does anyone have any copies of the 2018 menus for the Escape’s main dining room?
  3. Interesting! We are on Feb. 10th sailing but no mention of that date in the email either...just the other dates in Feb? Does that mean we are or aren't on the revised itinerary? Hmm?
  4. Hi. My family and I are going on Norwegian getaway this weekend. This is the first time on Norwegian. We have done several other cruise lines and never had a problem wearing sandals in the dining room. Looking on the website, it says only closed toe shoes allowed. Is this a strict practice or can we continue to wear sandals like on past cruises. Thanks, Barb

    Need help deciding on a beach

    Hi there. We'll be there in February. I just emailed JO's. If you don't mind me asking, what would lunch run you? Is this a suitable place to go with 2 we'll behaved kids (11&8)? Thanks :)

    Canadian cruisers!!

    Thanks to all of you for helping me with this! I just called, got the email confirmation! $499 (that's the max they allowed me to add to obc) and it cost $548!!! That's just insane!!!! Wow! I wonder if I could add more than the $499 if I call again another time before my cruise or if the $499 is the absolute limit? Thank you all so much!!! Barb :)

    Thanks to all of you who responded. Once I call in and put the obc on my account the amount will get charged to my credit card. So for example if I put $200 obc, then my cdn credit card will charge me the daily exchange rate? Correct? Or am I missing something? Or do I need a US credit card? Just want to be sure I understand how it works. Thanks all :)

    Hi There, Quick question...can someone walk me through step by step what I need to do to apply an on board credit and take advantage of this great exchange rate? I called the 1800 number and the fellow on the phone was not helpful. They then transferred me to Gift and Gears and the office is closed for holidays. Any idea on how I can add this to my account? Thanks

    Baby Beach or Eagle Beach

    This is great info. We will be in Aruba in a few short weeks. We will do the bus to Eagle Beach as well - will get on the bus at the port. I am assuming the bus stop is right there? What type of currency should I have on hand for the bus? and approx how much?? Thanks

    Blue Bay Beach - how to get there?

    Thanks. Do I just grab a cab when I get off the ship?
  13. Hi, We are travelling on Grand Princess in November. My daughters are 4 and 7. Will they allow them to be together? Please help with any tips? I as well as they would prefer them be together. Thanks

    Eagle Beach and how to get there?

    Hi My family of 4 is looking to go to Eagle Beach on our port day in Aruba. How do I get there ? I have been reading that that bus there is cheap. Is this easy to do or complicated? Please let me know what the best option is on how to get there and any specifics on what to tell the cab driver or bus driver? Is there a specific resort I should be looking at? I have read about Amsterdam Manor?? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks :)

    Blue Bay Beach - how to get there?

    Hi, We will be in Curacao from 8am to 1pm on a port day. We would like to head to Blue Bay Beach. 2 adults and 2 children (4 and 8 years old). How do we get there, how far is it from port and if it's by taxi how much should we expect to pay for the 4 of us? We were thinking of leaving the ship early in the AM and then spend all the time at the beach before heading back to the ship. Please let me know your thoughts. thanks :)
