  1. Take the letter you received to the cashiers cage in the casino and they will give you the amount on your letter. We did this for $75 on the Seaside and they gave us the money to gamble with. Think of it as freeplay, not OBC.
  2. WE did this same cruise 2 years ago and we rode the train to the other side of the canal. The train runs along the canal and you can see the locks and other sites along the way. In Panama city there was a local tour and then a bus ride back to the ship. Colon is a shipping port and there is not much to see there as we saw a lot of it on our way to the rail station. A few cruise ships do not go into Gatun lake and turn around due to the timing and cost. In response to your question about smaller ship excursions we did not see or hear of any being offered but you might be able to g
  3. In all of our cruises on Norweign, Princess, Holland American and MSC we have never tipped for room service. Always figured it was included in the cruise fare. If they provide any service like clearing a table, setting up the dishes etc., I might give a tip.
  4. Yes you can put door decorations on your door. Use strong magnets as the steward will occassionally hit the door as they move around. We have used the CC door sign on our 8 MSC cruises and don't care what NCL does. Signs, good wishes, birthday/anniversary signs put on our doors as we wish to do.
  5. We have sailed four times in the Yacht Club on the Divina and we loved every cruise. We then cruised on the Seaside and decided we would always sail on it over the Divina in the Yacht, We have now done four cruises in the YC on the Seaside and like the layout of the YC over the Divina. You can't go wrong in the YC on either ship. Your Son will love the YC on the Seaside and the ease of getting anywhere on the ship.
  6. Your OBC will go on the credit side of your shipboard account. Daily service charges and any other chargeables will be deducted from your account. Think plusses and minuses. Enjoy your cruise......
  7. Had the same problem on Regent a few years ago and they would not give me a refund for prepaid excursion but my TA got the money refunded for me. Good luck.
  8. Great service from Elaine got exactly what I wanted. No reply fromDiego. Thanks again for the info.
  9. Thanks for the info, will give them a try..
  10. Mr Mike45 can you give me the info on your casino rep as I have been trying to get hold of someone in MSC casino and have gotten no results, Thanks in advance.
  11. Not sure I agree with everything said above. There were no craps games on the Divina or Seaside for the 8 cruises we did. I play BJ, Roulette, 3 Card and UTH plus craps when available. I play for the fun and excitement of the game. At times I wouldn't give my card as I don't need points to get a stuffed toy or boat, etc. Casino person(?) told me I was losing the opportunity for cruise discount so I gave them my card. Believe me they know who is gambling and who is just playing. After a couple of nights play, we do BTB, casino personnel would approach us and ask some informat
  12. Just tell the concierge in the YC that you went the previous cruise and they will take care of it for you.
  13. What number did you use to contact the casino department? I am trying to get a discount I was promised.
