  1. We had this for the first time on our trip to Alaska last summer. So wonderful. We got to the ship with our two grandchildren and were immediately taken to the special lounge where we checked in. Had all kinds of snacks and drinks which the kiddos loved. Our concierge came by and introduced himself and let us know that he was available any time for questions and help. We always got notes in our suite about when and where we would tender from (we were not in the Haven, but we were in a family suite). With disembarking they gave us special tags to put on our luggage and we were some of the first ones off the ship. Again, all information was given to us in advance. Can't wait for our next cruise to use all that again.
  2. I try to book everything I can as soon as they are offered to book. Have done this on every cruise. That way we get exactly what we want when we want it. We prefer earlier dining and those slots go fast.
  3. We were on NCL and we started in Venice, did the Greek Isles and then back to Venice. Then we went to Spain and Portugal on our way back to NY on the TA. Got everything in. Loved both places.
  4. We are going to try this out in 2021 in South America. I had checked on lots of flights and the only one that would get us that cheap an airfare was one that took us from Portland to Toronto to two different airports in New York, London and finally Buenos Aires. According to NCL they have flights with only one stop out of Seattle. We shall see, but at least we are assured that they will get us there somehow and we don't have to worry about how. That is worth something we hope.
