  1. And I'm cursing daily ! (Oh, for a proofreader)
  2. While we have been to Nachi C. and Allegro and enjoyed them very much, I recently discovered Del Mar Latino which is small, has a limit of 80 adults, is AI , and the best part, only $30. PP. We have a reserv. for Dec. Good luck ! steve
  3. I redeemed 10,000 points for OBC this week by calling 866-9544077 and was told it was OK to redeem up until the day before you sail. steve
  4. After being assigned a balcony cabin 6 mos. in advance in an undesirable location, I was told by my TA (not NCL) that NCL would not change it, so I upgraded to a guar. mini suite for $100. PP. steve
  5. WOW!! Thank you VERY much. We'll be on her in Dec. from NOLA , but they are a fascinating read.
  6. We are Platinum and sailing on the Getaway Dec. 1st. Booked a GTY balcony last Feb. and was assigned cabin 13710 six months prior to sailing!. However, Since it is about as far from the elevators as possible, I expect we will upgrade to a GTY mini for $231. total, while keeping our percs (prepaid grat.) and will get and additional $25.OBC. steve
  7. Last year we went to Allegro through Resortforaday and enjoyed it very much. Also have been to Nachi, which was comparable.
  8. We are NCL Platinum and booked our 1st GTY balcony (with promos) last Jan,. for a Dec. '19 sailing on Getaway. Of course I've been curious about our cabin assignment and check balcony and mini availability periodically.. After reading this thread yesterday I went to NCL site and was surprised to see that we've been assigned a cabin 6 months in advance ! There are still many balconys and minis available in all categories and I'm not too thrilled that our cabin is as far away from the elevators as possible, so am thinking about trying to change it, or book a mini for $100. PP more (providing I can keep the prepaid grat. and OBC). Final payment isn't until late July. I'm not really asking for advice, just relating our experience. Thanks for playing. Happy sailing! steve
  9. Excellent !! Thanks very much ! We'll be on her in Dec.
  10. WOW !! Talk about comprehensive. I can't thank you enough, Bird, as we will be on her for the first time in Dec. Great photos and descriptions ! We prefer smaller ships, but have been on the Epic, so we have an idea what to expect, although it will be our first time in a guar. balcony, due to the $350-400 price difference of a reser. bal. Best wishes, Steve
  11. Does anyone know if Lattitudes (points) status would be a factor in GTY assignments ? We are Platinum and just booked a Getaway GTY. Thanks, Steve.
  12. Thanks very much, Mark. Very enjoyable and well-written. We'll be on her for the 1st time in Dec.
  13. We got off the Vision last Sat. where we did this at Chops and Italian. It was great with no added gratuity.
  14. Thanks very much for the insightful and well-written comments. We'll board her for the 1st time this Sat. Sounds like you had a great time. steve
  15. Thank you very for taking the time and effort, creel. We'll be on her the 19th for the 1st time. Our very first cruise was on Enchantment, but have since sailed NCL a lot, HAL twice and Carn. once, so I'm curious to see how this compares. steve
  16. Good to know, gofeo. I see that 4 ships are scheduled when we return to CM in Jan. Do you think the const. will be completed by then or will there be tendering ? On our previous trips there have only been 2 ships docked. Luckily we can still walk that looong pier if need be. Thank you. steve
  17. Thanks very much for the prompt reply, Bob.
  18. Can any recent "Visioneers" offer me some feedback on the current evening enter. options on board ? Any production shows worth seeing? Thanks very much. Steve
  19. I have reserved roof-top pkg. with Fulton Street for $84. for our 7-nighter in Jan. Free shuttle to and from pier.
  20. Thanks very much, Linda. I just found this thread today and it will prove helpful for our 1st time on Vision in Jan. steve
  21. Thank you ! Loving this ! We'll be on Vision in Jan., our 1st time back on RCI in about 12 yrs. after a lot of NCL and HAL. Hope you have a stress-free time. Steve
  22. Harvest Key is beautiful. however it rained all day when we were there 2 years ago.
  23. Thanks very much for the info. We'll be there again in Jan.
