  1. Have actually stayed in 6302 and would NOT recommend. Balcony is slightly larger than standard, but nothing like the sweet 16 on M-class (which we have also stayed in multiple times). The balcony of 6302 ends, but the roof of the restaurant below (at balcony floor level - it was blue in the ship photos) continues out. Not only does that block your view down to the water, but crew would walk & work there using the window washing machines (yes, on the restaurant roof right outside your balcony) while the ship was in port.....most days. Guess why that's why the res
  2. Completely agree with the above post. Well said. To the OP: 1. Welcome to CC. I see this was your first post. 2. Suggest in DR you do a tour or shore excursion. Don't recommend any independent exploration there. 3. As others have said - Nassau is nothing special.
  3. Easy to keep prices high when your ships are not sailing. Why cut prices when it's all demand & no supply. Be patient.... when the ships return and are not at capacity (whatever that is) ... deals will follow.
  4. Mark - Amsterdam is a wonderful city with spectacular sights. Can't comment on this particular tour, but can only suggest that you look into what is there.... and see what you want to see.... not what the slow-moving X bus tour takes you to. Some great sites include: Rijksmuseum Van Gogh Museum Anne Frank House Daily flower auction at Aaslmeer Keukenhof Gardens - In early May it will still be open You will miss most of these on the X tour and that's a shame. Please consider staying near the Museums and seeing what you want to see. It's an eas
  5. One last thought - If C1 is in your budget, the balconies of these aft cabins are amazing on all M-Class ships.
  6. Try this Thread: https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/1289058-sweet-16-cabin-question-on-summit/ Do a search there is plenty of info here.
  7. Can't help with window-washer location, but have stayed in 8046 and the larger angled balcony is nice. However, that larger balcony makes the balcony in 8048 not-private (right next to the angled balcony). The person standing at the edge of the 8046 balcony can look right on to the balcony in 8048. I would not stay in 8048. Prefer the "sweet-16" cabins to either of these.
  8. Here in New York it's hard to believe any cruising will begin this year.....but I sure hope you are all right. Fingers crossed and watching with optimism!!
  9. If needed you can lift the bed frame to slide the case under the bed. Have found that the frame extends lower than the actual space under the bed and is easily lifted slighty. Three cases should be no problem....you have the whole space under the bed.
  10. From a Cruiser in New York: Please try to understand the situation here. Writing from just outside NYC. New Yorkers have been strong & determined. I am proud of our state and proud to be a part of our recovery. As a whole, there has been incredible compliance with tough restrictions for 12 weeks now and counting. We have done an unbelievable job of beating back a horrible illness brought to us because ...well, everyone from all over the world comes to New York. If your area has not had a hard-time with this illness, be grateful. As everyone knows, N
  11. If you plan on at least 3 nights in a specialty restaurant, look into the packages.
  12. Stayed next door in the veranda cabin 6303. Would not stay there again. Maintenance crew walks on the restaurant roof right outside your balcony to clean the restaurant windows below on most port days. That was weird with workers right outside our balcony, and you can probably expect that. Also as you probably know view is not as good with the roof extending past your balcony. We were fine with no noise from the restaurant below. These boards advised to make sure you are not located over the kitchen areas (blank white space on deck plans) as that can be noisy. W
  13. If you do wait to upgrade until you board, resist the first person who asks - probably while you are still on the boarding line. Go to the bar you expect to frequent most during the cruise and upgrade with someone who works there. Apparently (according to these boards) the person who makes the upgrade sale gets something out of it so you will be "immediate friends" with them. One tip: make sure the person you upgrade with is one of the regular servers there. X puts extra people on for embarkation day so just ask. I made that "mistake" once. It's always nice to ha
  14. We usually eat in specialty venues at 8:30 pm and are often "last in" and among the last to leave many nights. Honestly, no way you want to enter at 10pm. If, for some unusual circumstance, you must dine so late one night, talk to a restaurant manager and ask what they suggest for you. But forget about eating at a restaurant at 10pm. Entering a restaurant at 10pm is going to be so uncomfortable for you even if they will seat you. You will be rushed and dining alone at best. No thank you, .....Not for me!!
