  1. I see that you recommend that those with status - I am Elite - should wait until onboard to purchase unlimited. I am doing a 7 day and the pre purchase price is around $59. I know as an Elite I would get 150 minutes. Do you know what the online price is for unlimited? Thanks!!
  2. I too have the 5 package and wondered what happens if I have more than 5 speciality reservations. Does it cover the first 5 in order? Also, how does it work with Cirque? Does that reservation take 1 of your 5 options? Thanks!
  3. Another related question would be, if you had the unlimited internet package, couldn't you phone home without a cost? As you can probably tell, I have a situation where I will have to phone the states on my transatlantic cruise. Thanks Again!!
  4. Another dumb question.... I see you can call off the ship for .79 per minute. I assume since your phone is in airplane mode, your cellular carrier does not charge you a fee for this call? Or am I missing something? Thanks!
  5. Does the time on the app count against your internet package? Thanks!
  6. It looks like if I prebook, I get a 15% discount on the unlimited package. This is a 19 day cruise, so the unlimited package is discounted to $399. . However, I have 250 free minutes that I wanted to apply to that price. So if I am understanding your recommendations, you think I should wait until I get onboard to upgrade?
  7. Does anyone know if the dividers on the balcony can be opened? I am specifically looking at an aft cabin on the Getaway. Thanks!
  8. Excellent idea. Does the Getaway have an ATM? Thanks
  9. It is not a king. My sister slept on it when we sailed and she is not a big gal. It was really just the couch folded down. No way two 14 year olds could sleep on it together. When it was open, it was difficult to move around it. It took up the whole space.
  10. I am sailing on a 19 day transatlantic cruise and want to have money to play in the casino. I will be doing some travel prior to boarding the ship and don't want to carry a lot of money with me. Can you charge casino money to your cabin? If so, I assume there is a charge? Could I buy OBC and not be charged a fee for using the OBC in the casino? Another thought was using travelers checks - Not sure they even still exist. If they do, can they be cashed on board? Thanks very much!
  11. What happens if for example your tour is only $89. Do you get a credit for $89 or $100? Thanks!
  12. So only one person gets the $100 credit and the 2nd person gets nothing?
  13. That sounds like it may be the solution. Have you done this and worked out ok? Thanks very much!
  14. Yes, I have every cruise.
  15. I am curious how you do "front" money. I would like to have cash for gambling but will be doing a land trip before I get on the cruise and I don't want to carry a lot of cash with me. Thanks!
  16. How does this work? If there are 2 people in the cabin, can each of the get one of these excursion credits?
  17. A friend and I booked a Haven Suite and had the pick 5 perks that included a $50 excursion port credit. There was a second campaign going on at the same time that offered another $50 credit. Since she was listed first on the reservation, both $50 credits are under her name. I asked our TA if one credit could be moved to my name so we could each have a $50 port excursion credit. I was told no, it only applied to the first passenger listed on the reservation. Has anyone else had this double excursion credit? I am thinking that the way this is listed, she would get a $100 port excursion credit and I would get $0. Is that how it works out? Thanks for your help!
  18. Does anyone have a menu for Alfredo's? Do you need a reservation? Thanks!
  19. How do you receive these offers? Is it by email or a call? thanks!
  20. I vote Princess. I have taken my mom on Princess and she loves it. I asked her advice on your situation. The only comment she has is that it can be a "high step" into the bathtub/shower on Princess.
  21. Quick question...If you have SDP how does your server know that? Also, lets say for example you have purchased the 3 dinner package and actually dine 4 times. Does the SDP automatically go on the first 3 dining visits? Thanks!
  22. Great review. Can you share a little information about the hotel you stayed at? Also, do you happen to remember how much the taxi fare was from your hotel to the ship? Thanks!
  23. I agree about that the increased tip may give the impression that the Butler is included. I recently sent an email to the Public Relations Dept at NCL. I wanted to get clarification as to whether or not the Butler's tip was included in the daily fee. My email is below - followed by their response. It appears that even NCL is confused as they gave me the impression that ALL crew members share in the daily fee. :) Sent: Thursday, April 19, 2018 4:59 PM To: PublicRelations NCL Subject: Butler Service Hello: I hope you can assist me. I have a cruise planned in The Haven. I want to ensure that everyone receives a gratuity. Can you please breakdown how the $17.50 service charge is allocated? How much to wait staff, versus cabin steward, etc. Also, I want to clarify if the Butler is included in this daily charge? Thank you very much. Hi: We do not have a breakdown ofthe service charges. All our crew is included in the service charges. If youhave any other additional questions, please send an email to accessdesk@ncl.com. All the best, Public Relations Norwegian Cruise Line
  24. I need some help from the experts! We want to book a mini suite on the Regal. I have read posts that say to avoid the minis that are exposed to the Skywalk. However, I can not determine which minis would be exposed. Can anyone tell me which decks to avoid? Also, are there any minis that have better balconies than others? I know some front balconies are larger. Are there any decks that have larger mini suite balconies? Thanks so much!
