  1. Wait, I was thinking it wouldn't be too hard to get to Portland Maine in the worse case scenario. It is a round trip Canada cruise out of NY that has a day at sea and then stops in Portland Maine. I didn't think about weird cruise rules, you are saying I couldn't join the ship in Portland? I'd have to wait to join at Saint John? I'm rapidly losing interest in this cruise.
  2. I could use some guidance too since I booked a cruise out of NY with the Air and assumed they will book me in very early and if something happens, since they book the airfare, would help out getting to ship. I normally do get in a day early but normally book myself. Transfers are included on my confirmation. NY would be expensive to stay a random night and just seemed easier to leave reservation alone and take the air they give but now I'm concerned. If I add NCL insurance to the reservation before final payment (I assume this happens before flights assigned) does that protect me? I.e. if miss sailing, they would get me to next port, Portland Maine? I normally buy insurance but not thru the cruiseline.
  3. It is so weird to me they didn't just make this change affective with new bookings as of xyz date and then pax would know when book abc rate exactly what getting for that. Perhaps rates will go down without perks on these cabin types. I bet they looked into it and it was an adminstative hassle to try to figure out which of the CP/BW paxs got perks or not. Still, seems like they could have just "bought" soda packages at a minimum. Interesting that they no longer think need perks to fill these cabins, some bean counter must have figured better to sell at a discount these cabins than fun the perks to get pax in them.
  4. Have all Oasis class ships gotten rid of the Headliner show or just Symphony? I won't see Cats again and would guess many are in the same "boat" and would at least like THIS ship, which is showing the same ole CATS, to keep an option for a headliner show some nights.
  5. Since the perks had some value it would seem cruise fare will decrease, or at least the price difference between BW and CP compared to an OV balcony will increase. Some might prefer a cheaper cruise fare over the perks and it's one less thing to worry about administering.
  6. Thanks for posting this list. I've only sailed once as D+ and got a bottle of wine and a beer, which was nice. So if I call C&A I can chose beach towel or slippers instead of the bottle of wine? Are there any pictures of towels/slippers? Is the beach towel nice to have, long? Thanks.
  7. They have good reviews on TA but nothing since July. Thanks.
  8. I think that's a helpful image, especially now that I get which way things face. Is there something similar for the bungalows?
  9. Refresh my Coco Cay memory b/c I'm pretty sure I read about this before. I know you don't have be be in a suite to book a bungalow on coco. Do they have two sets of Cabanas to rent; one set in suite area which can only be reserved by suite guests, and another set of Cabanas available to anyone to book online? I thought non suite pax could book some sort of Cabana on Coco Cay so maybe there are suite cabanas and 'avail to all' cabanas?
  10. I can't really justify buying it b/c last cruise couldn't even use 3 DL drinks offered since brought wine onboard and don't really like beverage package wine. It's similar to buffet prices on land, if I find one with good enough quality to compare to a regular restaurant, I'm still better off at the non-buffet place where I can order a meal and bring home 1/2 for leftovers. The pricing is going toward only really big drinkers can justify getting it, and that's fine too, we all make decisions based on how much can drink, RCCL can do what they want, their ship. Perhaps their sales will just show up as larger percentages off now........... we've seen that before. I do sort of think a diamond member may bet the biggest bang from booking BW balcony so get sodas already, and coffee from the DL, and 3 drinks per night outside of the DL.
  11. Sorry, that just stinks. I had something similar on Carnival Freedom for a port of call that docked and couldn't get over taking so long in a hot line, nearly missing our private excusion hookup after allowing plenty of extra time, just to "ding" out and walk off. If Oasis class I'm walking right off and smaller ships I'm in a hot line thru hallways, something is wrong. I'd hate to see any RCCL ship be similar to my experience on Carnival freedom which I blamed on Carnival manpower working the machines. After 45 minutes they openned a second line. I haven't been back despite some things being very nice on Carnival. Can understand tender wait but not a line to get off the ship more than maybe 10 mins.
  12. Probably a dumb question but if not staying in a suite can you book cabanas/ bungalows? Does it open up to non suite guests ahead of boarding ? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Not really related but did anyone bring up the website recently and for a second think, did I go to Ncl site?....... Epic Escapes sale Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. Closer to reasonable prices and if already booked may be able to move up to a slightly better cabin. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
