  1. Looks really nice. The Spirit was always one of my favorite ships and I'm going to look into booking on her next time.
  2. Part of me feels like Norwegian didn't save for a rainy day the way other cruise lines did.
  3. They did allow us to use just one person's credit to share between the two of us.
  4. I am done with Ocean Blue because it was terrible on the Encore. We went to Food Republic on both the Bliss and Encore. My husband loved It and would have eaten there every day. I thought it was pretty good. They had these amazing tacos on the Bliss, but they weren't on the menu for the Encore. On the Bliss we were able to sit by the window and watch whales which was an extra bonus.
  5. The only time I've ever gotten seasick was going from New York to the Bahamas. I was sick the whole trip up and down the Atlantic. I've sailed out of New Orleans twice and never had a single problem, I think you'll be fine.
  6. I checked the price on our upcoming cruise today and it is currently listed at over $400 per person than when we booked it in December. Which, of course was in a different decade. I'll keep watching those amazing "sales" though.
  7. In Seattle we were able to sign up to transfer all of our luggage to the airport and put it in the hall the night before, if that works for you. Then you just have to deal with your carryon's until you get to your home airport.
  8. I guess I would go with option #2 out of Miami. I love New Orleans, it's one of my favorite cities but the Mardi Gras crowds might just ruin the whole experience.
  9. Onda was our favorite specialty restaurant. Ocean Blue wasn't that great the night we went.
  10. "Norwegian Cruise Line, on the other hand, has introduced non-touch temperature screenings for all passengers boarding its ships from Chinese ports to prevent the flu-like virus from spreading. Those who have a body temperature of 100.4˚F will not be allowed to board. Individuals who have lived or traveled through Wuhan in the last 30 days will be turned away as well." https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/cruise-lines-china-coronavirus
  11. I just checked my Mexican Riviera cruise and its currently running about $160 more than I paid. It's not until October, though so I'll keep checking.
  12. I just feel that NCL is one of those companies that don't particularly see the value in investing in great technology.
  13. I'm an awful person, I know. Nobody else on this board ever would be so ungrateful as to book a cruise, and then actually hope that the price goes down later so they can get a reduction. I'm clearly the only one who even looks at prices after they've booked. There probably isn't a single thread on this board about people looking for price drops.
  14. It's been a few years, but on our NYE cruise they did hand out champagne on the pool deck and do a huge countdown party. It seems like there were people of all ages. I saw some tuxes and people who didn't dress up at all. I wore a black cocktail dress. Anything goes that night.
  15. I was trying to be funny - Let's just say I'm slightly disappointed.
  16. I checked my cruise prices today hoping for a reduction, and the current price is actually higher today with only 2 Free at Sea offers. I have all of the offers in my current mini-suite reservation. I am bitterly disappointed, obviously.
  17. I lived in Canada for a couple of years and they were always just called Caesars. You could actually make a meal out of them at some restaurants there.
  18. Yes, every ship I've been on has Clamato, with just the usual Bloody Mary garnishes. They don't do any fancy rimmers that I've seen.
  19. The Encore is in Great Stirrup Cay this weekend. I wonder how many guests are on board?
  20. The rep you talked to is wrong. You should call again. I changed mine yesterday and the rep I talked to agreed that there is no way for a customer to change it themselves. NCL has zero interest in having a fully functioning website, for whatever reason.
  21. A $25 supplement charge with the dinner package for a lobster at Ocean Blue? This is a soul crushing development.
  22. I get these little crossbody purses from Amazon. The front zipper pocket is perfect for your room card and they come in different colors. They are super flat, so they don't take up any room in your luggage. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07191RXQM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  23. We bought the package for the kids right at the first speciality restaurant we went to.
  24. I remember seeing rectangle tables put together for large parties in the Manhattan room. You might be able to seat 6 at the round tables, but I think that's about it.
  25. I have Kinky Boots reserved on Friday at 10:30. None of our dining or entertainment reservations are showing up on our summary. I called to confirm again today and was told it wouldn't show up on our summary. It's probably a good idea to call and confirm anyways.
