  1. NCL Girl, it looks like you can make reservations on August 19 or so, is that right? If so can you post at the time to let us know if it is comp or not? I am not on ii until next May.
  2. Everything I read about Bernard's tours says or implies that it is private. Is this true? Can a couple just book it like you would a ship's tour?
  3. Does anyone know if the Choir of Man is comp. On MyNCL it still shows as $15.99.
  4. Sorry that should be Feb. 23 2020 cruise on HOTS.
  5. I knew there was a reason I checked CC every day! I just bought it for our May 31, 2020 cruise on HOTS. Canadian dollars so I was charged $23 a day. I guess as Canadians we will have to drink more. I will take it as a Canada Day gift!
  6. Excuse me for going slightly off topic, but what about visually impaired? My wife is legally blind but still partially sighted. She can see shows from the front. Anything towards the back would be a waste of time for us. I have enquired and told guest services will help us after we board. I have learned not to be too trusting of statements like this. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this situation.
  7. In Aruba, we came across a local tour just at the end of the dock area near the main street. Don't recall the name but it was $25 pp I believe. He had about 8 passengers and took us around the island for 2-3 hours. Four stops, including the lighthouse and the rock formation area which was covered in cacti. Good photo opps. Also the Aloe fields and factory. He then stops at Eagle Beach and will pick you up after an hour. That is optional. Seemed like much more value for money than ship excursion for sure. Never stopped talking about the island. I would recommend. We just walked around in Curacao but noticed local tours being sold in the area just after you cross the pontoon bridge. Considered a $35 tour there but after our walking didn't have enough time. May be worth checking out.
  8. We were to both a couple of years ago and in Hamilton they had a free walking tour with the town crier. Excellent and over 2 hours long. Larger and more shopping and such in Hamilton and also seemed safer with some roads in St. George with small or no sidewalks and cars whizzing by. The highlights in St. George are some old churches and heritage buildings plus the "dunking of the wench ceremony", either a hoot or politically incorrect depending on your sense of humour. You may want to google and check if Hamilton still has the free walking tour.
  9. I understand the process with specialty dining restaurants with a cover charge but how does it work with a la carte. What are my limits?
  10. ...straighten out your dining plans? After reading many posts here about traditional and MTD I am still left confused on the options we will have, especially concerning MTD and intend to head directly to wherever I can confirm/change/clarify our situation. Is it one of the dining rooms? TIA
  11. Thank you. I did not think they had tables for 2 in traditional. I will check that out.
  12. Interesting. Are they still showing as 5:45 in your planner? If you remember could you update this post after your cruise as to what happened. Thanks.
  13. Yes, but the point is that MTD does not start until 6:30 on the Harmony now, so showing up at 5 or 5:15 is pointless. The Compass on earlier cruises still said 5:15 but now clearly states 6:30 as per the edition posted on Royal Caribbean blog website. The best case scenario is that the policy is changed for our cruise in 2020.
  14. That is what I was counting on too but the above posts plus the revised MTD times in the May 26 Compass don't make it too likely.
