  1. The reason why CDP is a business. Things change, the lines don't want to spend time or money. Refurbs happen. Even within a category many different variants. Dawn and Star DOS still have rendering from 2010 that does not match either of the two real versions. I'd agree about new ship but Haven sold out on TA in 36 hours. Those in the know that NCL usually improves a category so if you are familiar with a cabin type there is low risk of disappointment.
  2. There has been little info here about bidding. Supposedly they use same third party as NCL where lots of info. Reports are submit bid, you can change, but no report of contact to increase bid if someone else outbids you.
  3. Yes, the aft pool area at top is Haven. The lower deck, Boulevard??, aft section appears to be public.
  4. Welcome to CC. We took our 3 yo DS back in 2006 when NCL had three ships there. For us it was flexibility to work around things. Car rentals were easy there but hearing stories of rental shortages now. We tried to keep things to about half a day or we split doing things off ship with older child. Key for us was to get a nap in for him. The ship will be deserted during Port stops so an afternoon stint in the pools was lots of fun. We have pictures on wall with kids in the pool and one with him sitting on a beach chair smiling and holding a su
  5. We were lucky to get June cancel in 45 days. Nearing 14 months for FCC from last year.
  6. We were supposed to sail in one month. No new ship smell for us.
  7. Doing some more checking, it is pay as you go. On US site, if you sign up for package, spend $100 get 50% credit. No list of prices. They do have a chart for ships as to what will let you get 50% credit if you spend money there. Example, Mera zipline, no credit, Seaside yes.
  8. They used to have unlimited package for room. That changed. From US site, price varies based on ship and when purchased. Buy online and get 50% credit or you can save 20% compared to onboard prices - asterisks. The newer ships have the first option and older ships the second. Check their site under 'onboard' then 'entertainment'. Also, the newer ships have 4d vs older 3d shows whatever the difference, not sure. We did 3d shows on Divinia and they were cool. F1 was cool too but it kept breaking due to software.
  9. Hope it works out for July sailors. Saw Port Canaveral also had crew vaccines.
  10. Maybe I missed it, but can you get the vc discount using a TA?
  11. We've had wristbands last two trips in yc and they work well for everything. MSC also sold wristbands for other categories and kids.
  12. Black status used to get free cake if your birthday was while on board. I always thought kind of odd thing as we don't plan trips around birthday so guessing few actually benefit from this perk.

    MSC for Me App

    There is another thread floating around here the past few days that may help.
  14. My thoughts is cruise lines have lots of employees from India. Is what is going on there hampering getting crews back on ships?
  15. It was posted here long time ago and kind of can be found on MSC website under Cruise deals then deals then. Military and Civil Servant. Why I say kind of, from quick glance at terms under link it only talks about Military yet we've gotten civil servant 10% off. The post that was here included other groups - I want to say it was teachers but MSC US site does not mention that. It also says interior and ocean view are only 5% so maybe that is why TA saying only 5%?
  16. Not sure what to tell you. We are waiting near 14 months.
  17. We've been there three times and unless things changed, there wasn't any beer. I do recall wine and sparkling wine and water. Sodas, don't remember. Light snacks, yes.
  18. Getting ready for July cruises available on website. Joking aside, how long has she been there? I think I checked a week ago and she was just east of Port. NCL Gem was there, a month ago?? for seven days IIRC then is now in Aruba with Sky? Hard to keep track of all the ships.
  19. We don't really know about kids and how many vaccinated by then. With doses going unused now by us. We do know September kids are back in school so of course less kids than summer or spring break.
  20. Good to know. Misguy didn't say if TA or not or dates or ships.
