  1. I think there is not a dedicated Diamond Lounge on Empress so how will the morning Specialty Coffee and other tasty snacks be available? Thanks E
  2. Considering an Empress Fall cruise. Being the oldest ship in RCLs fleet, a few questions: 1. How are the stabilizers? Does the ship rock & roll. Never had trouble on the big newer ships but you never know on an older ship. 2. Outside cabins. Are there any cabins that is a little bigger because of placement on the ship? Also, I assume lower would be better. 3. Diamond Club .... Is there a DC and if not what accommodations are made? Thanks .... E
  3. First time O cruiser. How are the C1 & C2 ocean view cabins. Size - both cabin and bath? By paying up for a veranda would the size of both cabin & bath be significantly larger? Thanks for any opinions. tp
  4. Are you notified by RCL when you can make reservations for the shows on the Oasis class ships or do you just have to check everyday? Thanks ..... empehi
  5. Has anyone heard rumors concerning DL overcrowding (especially on the Oasis class ships). I am afraid that some sort of adjustment (perhaps increasing the requirements for DL access) may be coming in the future. Anyone heard anything?
  6. Does anyone know what the current main Broadway shows are on the Oasis class ships? Thx
  7. I'm new to NCL and have read a number of post about bidding for upgrades after your initial cabin choice. How does this work? Do you need to sign up with NCL? Thanks ...
  8. Odds at making 9:45AM flight from FLL off the Allure of the Sea?
  9. Would appreciate any thoughts on lower priced ocean view cabin on the Maasdam. Specifically, HH 375, 376. If a category or two higher would provide better views and location, I would greatly appreciate the input. I have never been on this ship. Thanks.
  10. Does anyone have an idea when Holland is considering refurbishing The Maasdam? It has been a long time. Thanks .... empehi
  11. We plan to arrive in Sydney a number of days before our cruise but we plan to fly out the day the cruise returns. How early should we book a flight to the USA the day the cruise returns? Fastest way to get to the airport? Thanks. E
  12. We plan on taking a cab from FLL to the port. What would be the best place to stop to buy wine, soda & water? Thanks ....
  13. We will cab it to the port from FLL and want to buy wine, water & soda somewhere between the airport and the cruise port on the day of the cruise. Any ideas where a quick stop in a cab would be to accomplish this feat? Thanks ....
  14. Sounds interesting ..... How much was the cab fare? tp
  15. I see that you can purchase pre-paid beverage cards in amounts like $100 or $200. What would be the advantage of this. Why not just charge your beverages to your room card to be charge to your credit card on file? Please, you experienced HAL cruiser explain these cards (I assume they can be lost and are just like cash). Thanks.
