  1. Breakfast and lunch in Moderno's is another great perk.
  2. Yes, they do. We got them in the mail for our TA this year and last year.
  3. We did the TA this year and stayed on to Civitavecchia. We went into Barca for lunch and came back to the ship around three. The line to get into the terminal extended almost to the next terminal. I can't say how long it was taking for the new cruisers to get through that, as B2B pax had a separate entrance, but it was a bit of a mad house. The fact that everyone leaving the ship that day had to go through Spanish passport control, and there were only two agents working to clear 4000-plus passengers, probably had a lot to do with the backup to get on board. It took us over an hour just to get off the ship, and that was with priority debarkation.
  4. We sailed on Escape when she came out out of the shipyard in Hamburg, the first people to ever stay in our cabin. It was a great experience. Nothing like that new ship smell.
  5. 640 days until my next cruise on Dawn, and all categories of suites still advertise with butler and concierge service for that sailing.
  6. I"ll second that. I used an Orange sim card in my unlocked iPhone, which worked far better and was much better than my $10 a day AT&T service. I got mine on Amazon for $40. I had great service in the Azores, Madeira, Spain, Italy, France and the UK. We were in Europe for five weeks, so I had to top up the card, which was easy to do online.
  7. I know. The nerve! I keep hoping they'll say "okay, you can stay on."
  8. I've been on 17 NCL cruises and all of them were terrible . . . when the cruise ended and they dragged me off.
  9. Can your TA check on this for you?
  10. Did you book directly through NCL? Whenever I book through that place with quarter-pound dog and drink for a buck-fifty, I never get an upgrade offer. If I've booked through ncl, I do. Last year"s TA on Epic in an H4, we got the upgrade offer, even though the Haven had shown sold out for a year. We'd booked through ncl. We did the same TA this year with same category cabin and added the b2b to Rome in the same cabin. First part was booked through the membership store, the 2nd through ncl. Got the upgrade offer on the ncl part, nothing on the first. Moot point, as we didn't want to upgrade, but this has been our experience.
  11. Great info, Simon. Thanks for taking the time.
