    Is there any way we can see what excursions will be offered at each port before we are able to book them? We're doing a segment of a world cruise in 2025 but I want to start exploring all the options.
  2. I am the original poster and looking through the website photos, I definitely see advantages to the Classic floorplan. One thing I didn't notice before was the small slider vs full sliders in the Classic. I also prefer the TV to be opposite the bed. So thank you all. We have a perfect cabin!!
  3. Thank you everyone for your thoughtful responses. We booked a segment of a world cruise in 2025, and Classic was our only option. Very happy to hear the good reports.
  4. Are some still not renovated. If so, are the Classic suites really dated?
  5. I have been amused by how my question about dressing for dinner and sport coats morphed into a discussion of wearing baseball caps (loss of hair due to chemo not included). Any more REAL comments on what "normal people" wear in the dining rooms!! 😂
  6. We'll be going on the NYC to Montreal cruise this fall. Do people tend to dress up a bit more for dinner during fall cruises. Do any of the men wear sport coats?
  7. Can you tell me what wine by the glass costs? And there's a 20% service charge?
  8. Not familiar with mega ships, but we're on the Ovation in July. Do we have to make show reservations? How do you know what the shows are? I can't find information on my reservation page. Any info would be helpful.
  9. Should we exchange dollars to euros and/or shekels or do tour guides catering to Americans accept dollars for tips. I understand 5-15% of the price of the tour (per person) is the norm (the higher end for exceptional service). Any comments on that?
  10. Do you need show reservations on the Jade?
  11. Thanks. I think we have only one tender port and we have an excursion for that one.
  12. New to NCL. Do ship excursions have priority leaving the ship in port, or can anyone leave at their leisure. I'm trying to plan for times when we have a private tour waiting for us. How soon after docking might we be able to disembark?
  13. Another Skagway question. I'm rethinking our excursion in Skagway. What is the best tour to travel the Klondike Highway for the scenery but to spend enough time at a dog sled camp for the grandchildren to cuddle with the dogs as well as take the 15 minute ride? I've looked a Viator and other shore excursion tours, but I want to have the best possible experience with the dogs while going as far as we can on the Highway.
  14. I was hoping for something we could do for free because we have 11 of us taking an excursion in the morning. Big $$$
  15. We are a family group of 11, including 5 adventurous grandchildren ages 12-13. We're doing a half day excursion up the highway and to visit the dogs, but what can we do for the extra 6 hours. We're docked until 8 PM. Are there any outdoor activities/hiking trails accessible by foot from town.
  16. Haven't been on NCL in many years but booked on Jade in May. Reservations for shows? Can you explain that?
  17. Specifically on the Jade, are the theater show times typically 7:30 and 9:30. We haven't been on a large ship in a long time and getting ready to book dinner times.
  18. I'm on the Norwegian Jade in May. In Santorini from 1 to 9. I booked a short ship tour to the volcano in order to get off the ship first (It starts at 1:15 I think). At the end of that, the cable car should be quiet and we'll take a public bus from Fira to Oia. Fingers crossed it all works!!
  19. We're not going until July-August but we are a family of 11 all flying out in different directions the day we disembark. It would be great to get the real scoop. Thanks for the Lyft/Uber info!
  20. Can you leave the ship early enough to make an 11:35 flight from SEA-TAC. We have never been on a ship this size and am wondering how the disembarking process works. That goes for the ports too. If we make private tour reservations can we leave the ship anytime or would we have to wait for the ship tours to leave?
  21. I was able to get information on the Celebrity Galapagos Facebook page.
  22. I did get some useful information. Thanks for responding though.
