  1. If they refuse to bend, tell him to take off his service charge. That will get their attention and they will bend over to rectify. Something similar happened to us and as soon as we said those magical words we had a senior officer who fixed all immediiatley.
  2. What a G**D*** disgrace. For what the package costs, they could at least throw in one IPA
  3. The Stewards knew when they contracted what was expected. The only way NCL will modify this asinine policy is when folks pull the DSC . Why should I pay for service that I am not getting. I don’t want to hear about poor crew as I also work hard and then pay for something I’m not getting.
  4. Yes enjoy but if I am not getting proper service why pay the DSC? If I don’t need to settle for less why shouldn’t I give less . Dirty cabin is just not accepted. If I ask more than once it’s obvious that management should be involved not a conversation with the steward or his boss
  5. I am a spelling and grammar freak at work. On vacation, it’s kind of charming.
  6. Thanks but really want Berlin. I have not been since 1987 and my wife has never seen. That’s why we will suck up cost and take charter train. But for those interested found a great free walking tour and a brewery near main train station with great lunch per a German friend
  7. We are taking the NCL chartered Berlin train in August from Wannamunde. Does anyone recall the time of departure and arrival in Berlin along with departure time and what station used as we are trying to plan tours and meal. Thanks
  8. Meatballs for the People. Very reasonable plus opportunity to try Elk or Reindeer if you want.
  9. Customer service and MSC is a misnomer like military intelligence
  10. Very easy and quick. Nice part is checked in bags do not have to be claimed and rechecked. Only negative is once through pre clearance no duty free and no real food.
  11. I go back to my original statement. Deduct from DSC and tell them why. If getting charged for a service your not getting,all included, then get your money back another way. Let crew take it up with bar staff . It may not be so nice but neither is NCL taking my money and not providing for paid services. I am paying for a vacation not a charity for corporate

  13. As I said simple solution for those with package. Ad unable to get served in certain ports, demand guest services refund the service charge as pre paid. If they refuse have them remove the DSC and tell staff why it was removed. After the inevitable crew discontent with bar staff who is getting tipped for doing nothing, the policy will be adjusted. Ad I said earlier it’s a nuclear option but effective one as paying customer, us should not be the loser. This is a paid vacation not a charity service.
  14. Simple solution for getting your money back . Yank the DSC and tell them why as the service charge for the drink package is non refundable . This will get their attention. As for those who believe it is screwing over the crew who gets this advice them to speak with the bar crew who are getting paid for service not rendered. It may be a nuclear option but it is something that would cause management to address issue and have us not out of pocket.
  15. If using NCL BOGO remember the line from Blazing Saddles, son you are on your own.
  16. Save it and bring it. I have a European cruise in a few months. If this occurs will ask for prorated refund or take nuclear option that will puss many off but will not be the loser, deduct from service charge and tell them why
  17. Again paying more for less! If I can’t get something I pay for I then ask for a prorated refund on service charge. That would be an attention getter
  18. NY Strip with peppercorn sauce and fries!
  19. Try Nandos for a nice and quick lunch
  20. Watched it from my window in Staten Island enjoy!!!
  21. Why book a cab or car in advance in Barcelona. It is quicker and either the same or cheaper to grab a cab at port.
