  1. I did read the full post;. I was asking why they were choosing to wait rather than call immediately. 😕
  2. See that's what I did, uploaded a pic of Deck 4. But the OP already knew that and just wanted to know if the iLounge was there is the same location as CC, ort maybe they thought CC was the iLounge?
  3. 🖐🏿️👋🏿🙋🏿‍♂️ I'm on Bliss in January, and I do wish you well and hope you have a great cruise despite the circumstances 😕.
  4. Ohhh, I misunderstood the question...nevamine (misspelled on purpose)
  5. Is there a reason you don't just call them now and just get it taken care of?
  6. Has anyone been to Cabo San Lucas via Norwegian? I want to see Land's End, but want something that sails right through and under the arch, if possible. Did you do any of these excursions, what was the best one for you?

Sorry, links don't work if you don't have an account with NCL. 😕
  7. I thought so too, until I first sailed Equinox and then Infinity. LOL There was a difference, even though both ships were practically carbon copies, the Infinity had the wear and tear of a (near) 20 year old ship, versus Equinox's 10. But the Equinox had just gotten out of drydock for it's upgrade when I sailed in 2019. So for me the Bliss is a new ship; likewise, a ship has to be sailing for at least 20 years for me to call it old; 10(meh 15) years is seasoned. 🙂
  8. I hope mine is by the balcony. My very first cruise on Celebrity Equinox had this configuration (door, couch/desk, bed, balcony) and I loved it. On the Infinity it was by the door (door, bed, couch/desk, balcony), and I didn't care for it too much, but I managed. The extra space between the bed and the door made a difference; and sleeping by the sea a plus. Closets in both cases were easy to get to. [CONCIERGE] [AQUACLASS] Also, the room seems larger, and feels less cramped with the bed by the balcony; both rooms were only 192 square feet.
  9. @luckyinpa " I agree there are lots of eager folks willing to pay the prices. On a newer ship it may possibly be worth it but on something like the Breakaway there's no way I would pay the ongoing pricing. It is over 5,000 for a courtyard in 2 weeks for Bermuda but I think I'm going with the mini Suite Ma. The only thing I'm concerned about is I've heard people getting Q-tips through their brains at the terminal I hope it is worth it" --------------------------- I've been in the house over the last year, so I have only put q-tips in my ears. This will be my first swab-up-the-schoz. 😆 I'll be fully vaccinated by the time that happens though. 🙋🏿‍♂️ Yeah, the Courtyard for my sailing was 29K$ for a solo...yikes-so-owza!
  10. Nope. 😟 I found a full Panama Canal transit cruise I wanted even more. It's on the NCL Bliss in January! Maybe next time, because I want to see the South Side of the Caribbean.
  11. 😁😄 Thanks! Since it's a 14 day cruise I'll pack it, just in case they have a photo with the Captain. Do they even do that? Thanks again for the compliments! 😆🍾
  12. I had to look that up. Thanks, you added anew word to my vocabulary! 🙆🏿‍♂️😄
  13. 1. I'm sure I'll fine with this "mini suite". After all Celebrity's Concierge and AquaClass cabins are similar in size; unless NCL offers me a discounted Haven upgrade, I'll stay in MA. I'm thinking that upgrade would likely cost me 9-10K$ , given what those suites cost now for the same itinerary. 2. Heh eheh, on my first cruise with them in the summer of 2019, I was actually not surprised by the number of scooters I saw. The kids/teens, however, surprised me; I thought it would all adults.
  14. 1. Because, Celebrity is classified as a Premium line by the industry. 2. For the itinerary (mostly bucket list), and the fact it's a new ship on the carrier. But, mostly, the itinerary - I have always wanted to experience a full transit of the Panama Canal. The Bliss was the only vessel sailing in January and was 14 days. Assuming Cabo doesn't get cancelled, like it did with Disney; the ports are bucket list items - Cabo San Lucas, Parta Vallarta, and Costa Rica. Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Columbia are also on the itinerary. It really had absolutely nothing to do with the ship. I just wanted an honest opinion on what to expect from NCL. I would have booked a similar itinerary on Regent's Splendor (https://www.rssc.com/cruises/SPL221213A/summary), but I would have to wait until next year; granted that cruise is 23 days versus the 14 days I'm doing now. Peace
  15. Okay, so I guess that I have won't have to fight for the cars or water slides. Nice!
  16. Oh I knew that going in. This cruise was just for the Itinerary, not the line per se.
  17. Heh heh ehe, for a minute there I had a cyberspace (before it was the web, and later Internet, capital "I") flashback to the days of Internet Relay Chat, and IIRC was a common IRC term.
  18. This was me o n CxC Equinox Summer of '19. A lot of folk did get dressed up, because it was picture time with Capt. Kate. Should have buttoned my jacket here, with my fat tummy. Just realized I didn't smile, but then again this was the last sea day and I was the only who got dressed up.
  19. Hmm? Keep us posted (an my post count just went up 😄).
  20. Knowing that NCL ships are "Freestyle", do they actually have a designated Formal Night onboard any ship? I'll be on the Bliss in January, and want to know if I should pack my Tux. Thanks
  21. Having never sailed Norwegian, I can say I'm a bit nervous. I only sailed the premium line Celebrity, and got used to their level of class and style. I have read that NCL can be hit and miss. I've read all to casual posts about the relationship between the norovirus and NCL ships 😟. SO, I hope this new ship, Bliss, is all hits come January when I finally see the Panama Canal! 🤞🏿
