  1. For what it's worth, I had the same thing happen (mysterious "purchased" OBC show up on my Vacation Summary), and mine is, in fact, OBC from my travel agent. So.... there's that.
  2. No Dailies yet - we're the first cruise on this particular itinerary out of New Orleans. You should join our Roll Call here - We're doing a meetup, a poker run, a cabin crawl.. some of us have talked about meeting up to do trivia, the escape game, and other stuff!
  3. Less than 48 hours. That was Breakaway though. You used the email address in the post from this board - groupeventjade@ncl.com? I’d try again and put “2nd attempt” or something in the subject line.
  4. I got a response just about a week ago. Which ship?
  5. The events / group coordinator takes care of that for you! Of course, if you happen to run into any of them on the ship, it doesn't hurt to reinforce the invite!
  6. It's supposedly only while the Four Seasons is being constructed, so - yes, should be temporary.
  7. If you are going before next summer, the Julia Street terminal is closed. There will be a shuttle of some sort, but the streetcar will not run to Julia Street.
  8. No, it won't, unfortunately. The Julia Street terminal closed in July of 2018 for approximately one year while they're building a new hotel.
  9. If you're going sometime before July of 2019, this won't be an option: https://wgno.com/2018/07/30/two-stops-on-riverfront-streetcar-line-suspended-for-four-seasons-hotel-construction/
  10. Rock of Ages is a Broadway musical..... not something any Australian company came up with :) It seems that all they're trying to do is modernize some of the entertainment, since I suspect that a fair number of the younger demographic cruising these days finds the Vegas-style theatre outdated and boring. RoA might not be the best choice - perhaps something like Movin' On, Motown (oh wait, that's largely based on African American history, so that's probably out too ) or Beautiful would be better suited as a bridge between demographics. But if I see one more crappy revue-style show (like Swing!) on a cruise I'll lose my mind. And "too homosexuality in your face" is telling that it was even mentioned, frankly.
  11. I love the show - saw a touring production in Chicago a few years ago. I'm taking my mom to see it on the Breakaway, and I think she'll love it. That said, if I were going solo... I would leave if I didn't think the cast was up to par. I find NCL's entertainment to be very hit or miss. I've left productions in the past because I just didn't care for the quality.
  12. There's a thread trying to track it here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2594030-confirmed-ncl-cruise-ships-that-have-straws-october-2018/
  13. I mostly agree... I would add two caveats... 1) Teppanyaki is impossible. If that's a "must" for you, I'd keep the reservation. 2) If you are traveling alone or as a couple, then doing things "whenever" works. If you've got a group of 6+ - then you may not have that luxury. That's just what I've seen in person and on the boards.
  14. I'm on the 11/11/2018 sailing of the Breakaway out of New Orleans. I got the offer to upgrade on 8/23. I was booked in an Oceanview, category OB. The offer was for either a mini suite, minimum bid $50pp, or a balcony, minimum bid $25pp. I put in a bid of $95pp for a mini, and $75 for a balcony. On Thursday, October 22th, I got the notice that we were awarded the balcony upgrade, and with the confirmation, moved to a forward BC on deck 13.
