  1. Can you pay to upgrade into two different cabins?
  2. We always book in USA thru NCL so it is not a TA thing. I am intrigued by this now!
  3. That is so odd, so I looked into other posts and found where someone showed their bid page and it did only have blue! I snapped screenshots of what I normally see, which has different colors along with the category (poor, fair, etc.). I have no idea why some are blue...anyone else have an idea?
  4. Really appreciate your optimism, it helped give me a better perspective. I am thinking of emailing the Pre Concierge to request meal times, but not sure that they have any better access than our PCC or ourselves have at this point. This computer system merge/update cannot go on forever, can it? Hoping it is resolved soon!
  5. We are interested in doing the same thing next year! MSC Barcelona so thanks for the tip! Absolutely a problem moving on after Haven. We really were sold when our first (and only) upsell was for the Garden Villa! We’ve only done Haven 2 BRs since. There is just something about the Haven that we don’t want to live without.
  6. I did not realize this was usually the case. I asked to upgrade to a suite after final payment and our PCC sent me an invoice where we would lose all our prior perks, including the air perk where they would now charge the excess reduced fare. Made it cost prohibitive to do it. Instead, we bid a fair bid at almost retail and got to keep our original perks when we won the upgrade. This PCC has cost us other losses based on her information. I was already thinking of changing PCCs and this new info may have tipped the bucket. Thanks for any insight.

  8. Congratulations on the Haven. It is an awesome experience! Be sure to look at the CC threads on Haven so you have an idea of what to expect. Butlers, Concierge, Priority,...Oh My! Enjoy!
  9. Thanks for your information. It will help us plan as we get closer to the day. Can’t wait to be onboard!
  10. Thank you. The video of the trip from the pier is helpful. Our ship says it will be in Key West from 9 am - 6pm so we thought we would have plenty of time. If you think otherwise, I would appreciate input.
  11. We have friends who stayin Marathon and we got a really good deal with points on a rental. Plus, I really want to drive on the overseas highway. We will be back in the fall for another cruise and will be able to do more then. I would like to know if cabs are visible around Mallory Square or other transportation. Thank you for any info.
  12. I see we will be arriving at Outer Mole pier, take the trolley 5-15 minutes to Mallory Square, or three blocks from it. Where will taxis be located so we can get to the airport for our car rental? Thanks for any info!
  13. I agree it’s frustrating that it doesn’t seem to take into account that an Aft Balcony costs way more than a regular one. I recently questioned why the minimum bids are similar for a 4 day, 7 day, and 11 day cruise (all with same starting room BA). How is it the algorithm calculates one is willing to bid, for example, $300 for a PH for 11 days and $300 for 4 days! I found it seems better bargains are to be had on longer cruises than short ones. Lesson learned. I think as long as we book what we are happy with keeping and bid only what we are willing, we can be grateful for information from each other. Thank you for sharing your experience. Enjoy the amazing views from your Aft Balcony!
