    When do they start decorating?
  2. I don't play much either. It was a special cruise offer listed within my Carnival account.
  3. How is this enforced? ? Do you have to actually sit at a table or a machine and will only get drinks served to you while gambling, or can you go to the casino bar and get drinks?
  4. I know it is current, because when I booked a few weeks ago, that page was one big mess, with contradicting statements. The have cleaned it up recently. Also look at the difference for the free at sea on a open bar ship (your cruise) and a ship without open bar
  5. First sentence on this page https://www.ncl.com/terms/sun-beverages ""Effective for Norwegian Sun 3-5 Day sailings beginning May 2018, guests will receive complimentary beverages which include designated spirits, cocktails, bottled beer, draft beer, and wines by the glass and unlimited fountain soda and juices at all bars, lounges, restaurants and Great Stirrup Cay*."" It will be hard for them to get around that! But I do agree with you and the gratuities have thrown several of us off..
  6. Good question... I have no idea, but would love to get an answer as well. I've been on two open bar NCL cruises and one MSC open bar cruise. None of them were like that. I didn't see any difference in peoples behavior from any other cruise I've been on.
  7. Maybe Cruisingnole should use a travel agent so he/she can get the gratuities right 😉 I totally agree wrecklezz. The $14.50 threw me off as well as the open bar wasn't mentioned during the online checkout. They know there was a problem since they very recently updated this info page https://www.ncl.com/terms/sun-beverages. Now it's crystal clear. However, when I booked the text on the top of the page said that open bar was on 3-4 days cruises from Port Canaveral. Further down the same page it stated that it was 3,4 and 5 days. So who would know what to believe! (except for Cruisingnole of course) 🙂 Anyway, they cleared their mess up and everything is good. .
  8. Our prepaid service charges was $14.50 for our 4/1 - 4/6 Sun cruise.
  9. I had the same issue today when looking online. It wasn't clear if open bar also was for sailaway cabins. So instead of booking online, I called them. At first the agent said no, no open bar for sailaway prices, but she checked with someone else and came back and told me it IS included. Nothing to see about it in my online booking, but this is from my confirmation email CONFIRMATION GUEST COPY SHIP: NORWEGIAN SUN SAILING: 1-Apr-2019 to 6-Apr-2019 CATEGORY / STATEROOM: IX / GTY ITINERARY: 5- DAY WESTERN CARIBBEAN FROM MIAMI: FREE OPEN BAR EMBARKATION: MIAMI DISEMBARKATION: MIAMI So I guess everything is ok...
  10. Do you know if you can upgrade any day right up to sail away date or do they have a deadline?
  11. I don't think martinis are included in Drinks on Us, but are they if we upgrade to the Classic drink package?
  12. I feel my vacation starts as soon as I board the ship, so the earlier the better!
  13. I believe you can go to the service desk and stop it and then tip whoever you want.
