  1. We had the same on the Escape in December. They were testing out some specials in addition.
  2. Been several years that I've noticed it. Tax is at the local rate on the price of the drink.
  3. So you did the air through NCL? In that case you should be fine since they are in charge of getting you there the whole way.
  4. Also the deck overlooks a rotary, always fun to watch the American drivers when they face the point of having to turn :)
  5. It's any port that requires taxes to be collected. We sailed out of NYC and stopped in Port Canaveral. Paid tax on value of drinks in both ports. It's not a huge part of the bill.
  6. Mixed area. Cagney's, La Cucina, Bayamo, & Moderno all have outside sections on the Waterfront. Cellars wine bar and 5 O'Clock bar are also out there. There is also non-restaurant seating that you can use whenever you want.
  7. News says that Park Service will keep many parks open but no facilities open. So good chance that Liberty Island in NY harbor will be closed like last time.
  8. We were notified fairly early - 60-50 days out. Our next cruise we only got the upgrade confirmation last Friday and we sail this Sunday, so 9 days out.
  9. The do it - we went from Aft Balcony to Owners Suite last Thanksgiving on the Gem. Some TA's don't participate and I've also heard of some people who didn't get the email but it shows up on their MyNCL account.
  10. We got approved Friday, for the 11/25 Escape 14 day from NYC. Went from Spa Mini to Spa Haven Suite for $580 each plus insurance cost. Bid was middle of Poor when we made it, don't know where it was when accepted. We're Platinum with NCL.
  11. Last cruise was first with bids. Ours was accepted early, I found out when I went to MyNCL page to check excursions and saw that room had changed. we have a bid in for our Nov. 25 Escape and that's where I check now, since I can then just go to plan everything else.
  12. 30 Days out you are still live - so still pending.
  13. The published time has some cushion - they have to get everyone from the prior cruise off before they let they new ones on. If all goes well they start boarding around 11.
  14. We had an OS on the Gem last year. Snacks were the big thing for our butler. One nice touch was he also collected our duty free liquor for us so we avoided the line on the last night - came back from dinner and our boxes were there!
