  1. keifernney - Thanks for your post and the information. Just curious, what time were you originally scheduled to arrive at the pier in Manhattan - which day and time? What time are you expected to arrive now due to change in schedule? We are sailing Saturday October 19 - any advice ? Hope you had a great cruise - anything NOT to miss - anything to skip? Hope you have smooth sailing returning home - thanks for any info. - appreciate it.
  2. I was just wondering if there were any itinerary changes due to the strong Nor easter hitting the east coast - Oct. 17, 2019?
  3. I was just wondering if there were any itinerary changes to the Dawn yesterday or today due to the storm in the north east, since she is on the Quebec to NYC cruise? Hope all is well.
  4. We are booked on NCL Dawn leaving Saturday October 19 for 14 day cruise out of Manhattan Pier. I just printed out our documents and it says embarkation will not start till 12:00 noon. It said not to arrive before 11:00 a.m. This was on our last documents in June also - we arrived at 10:15 and were on the ship by 10:45 - and we were not even in a suite - but Platinum. I did check and the cruise before us arrives at 8 a.m. which is a later than usual. I LOVE getting on the ship early and getting "extra" time for lunch and touring ship before muster drill and sail away. What should we do - still arrive around 10:00 and risk doors to terminal not yet open? Or wait till later - I know this sounds trivial, but seeking opinions. Also, when we return from our cruise the time docked is listed as !0:00 a.m. - I hope others sailing noticed this - as we have a car to pick us up - and don't know what time to tell them to be there. I don't want to pay for extra time if they have to wait. Again seeking advice - if docked at 10 a.m. - what time do you think we will disembark? Then again if we DO get in earlier - we might exit earlier. We are in a suite this time - and embarkation for suites is usually pretty rapid. Thanks for your opinions.
  5. Our schedule will permit a cruise in either May or September - which would you vote for and WHY? Thank you for any valuable input!
  6. Does anyone happen to have a complete listing of NCL ships that have windows in the shower and tub area in the bathrooms - If I cam correct these might be only in the ships that have a Haven? Perhaps I am wrong - if anyone knows - please provide a list - I think it would be great to cruise in jetted tub with view of ocean - or take shower with view of ocean - I know some are in the aft corner cabins - THANKS!!! And I would appreciate if you know the cabin category that provides this -
  7. I did get a reply from the concierge on Dawn - said disembarkation will start around 10:30 a.m. since docking at 10:00 a.m. Docking time at pier is correct as listed - I will double check once we are on board - so if I need to make different arrangements for pick up will be able to use internet package.
  8. Looking at pictures of the revolutionized Summit - it appears that the multi nozzle showers were replaced with regular showers. We always thought this was one of the best features of Aqua class - all those streams in the shower were so relaxing after a busy day out and about - shame they replaced them? Am I correct - have they been changed out for a regular hand held without all the extra features? Bad decision.
  9. A question to those on this sailing. On the itinerary it shows the Dawn arriving back to NYC Manhattan Pier at 10:00 a.m. Is this correct? Usually the ships arrive way early - like around 6 or 7 a.m. ??? I called NCL twice and neither rep had the answer - said they would check directly with the ship and get back to me. I need to know as we are having a car service picking us up after the cruise. Maybe someone got an answer from another rep? Thanks -
  10. Thanks for all your replies - glad to hear we can open the balcony dividers - hope for NO rain. However, I am EXTREMELY disappointed that the fantastic multi spray showers (one of the reasons we love Aqua )have been removed during the renovation. Bad decision!!!
  11. Sorry, I asked this before, but for some reason the search is not working for me. I know PRIOR to the Summit makeover - (I know not the right term - revolutionized) the dividers for balconies could be removed for adjoining cabins. Does anyone who sailed recently since the revolutionization - know if in fact these dividers can still be opened? We have 3 cabins in a row - and were hoping to have them opened for easy access to all cabins and a larger balcony to share. Any information greatly appreciated.
  12. I see the Getaway is sailing Italy/ Greece cruise in 2021 (May). I was just curious if ALL ports of call would have to be tendered for this larger ship. I wish the smaller ships would be doing this itinerary as less passengers to get on and off at each port of call. I see smaller ships going this year and 2020 - was hoping another smaller ship would sail for 2021. Time will tell - maybe something will surface later.
  13. If I recall correctly, there is no Haven on Dawn. Are suite guests still provided with access to Cagney's for breakfast and lunch? I believe that is what we did on the Gem, but that was a few years ago? Thanks for any information provided - I think we had lunch on embarkation day there, as well.
  14. I miss the chicken parm they took off the menu - we would get that every time - was soooo good.
  15. For the newly refurbished cabins on the Summit - I am asking a question about the Aqua Class cabins on deck 11 - both port and starboard - (not the cabins totally aft facing wake). Are you still able to remove balcony dividers between cabins - I know you could previously on this deck - hoping it has not changed. We have 3 cabins in a row and would like to open them for easy access outside on balconies with our friends. If anyone has sailed recently since the updates, I would appreciate any information or pics you could offer. Thanks for your trouble!
