  1. Packing for the cruise now. I just assumed there were hair dryers in the cabin. Yes? (Then again, I also falsely assumed there were self-serve laundry mats, like on the other cruises I've been on! LOL ) thank you!

    Laundryroom on NCL Star

    I just read there is no self service laundry room on board for passengers. Is this true?? I was really relying on this.

    Teens getting bored on ship

    Of course. We already have our cruise booked on NCL, though.

    Teens getting bored on ship

    How do you keep your teens from getting board on a ship that doesn't have a lot for kids to do? My kids are 11, 12, and 14. They aren't big into the kids clubs, but I'm sure they will give them a try. No waterslides or bells & whistles on this ship. (NCL Star)
  5. Is anybody familiar with beaches around the Split (Croatia) port?
  6. Any tips on getting to Krka River National Park from the cruise terminal? Our cruise line has an excursion but it's $109 for adults and $75 for children. As far as I can tell, that just includes the transportation. Seems awfully expensive, especially since we are a family of five. We just want to check out the waterfalls and if the weather permits, go for a swim. Any advice on getting there and back? Thanks. :)

    A bunch of questions about NCL Star...

    I hope not, too! :o They've been spoiled with Carnival's biggest/newest ships. Our cruise is very port intensive (5 ports on the week long cruise; only 1 sea day), but I still want them to have stuff to do on their own.
  8. We are jumping over to NCL from Carnival. :) I have some questions and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. Feel free to answer whichever ones you are familiar with: -Can somebody post (or a link to) the current MDR menus? Any "must have" recommendations? -Does the cabin steward come to the cabin twice a day or once? -I just read that I'm supposed to reserve our show times before we sail. Ack! I didn't realize that. Any shows in particular that we shouldn't miss? -Can somebody post the kids club itineraries? (ages 11, 12, and 14) -My kids want to know if there is soft serve ice cream 24/7, like on Carnival. ;p -There are no set dining times for the MDR, correct? Do you just show up at the dining room or do we check in elsewhere? I think that's it for now. :) Thank you so much!!
  9. My kids are 11, 12, and 14. We have a very port intensive cruise, but when we ARE onboard, what is there for them to do? They've been pretty spoiled with ships that have a lot of bells & whistles. I just learned that the waterslides have been removed. Very sorry to hear this. My 11 and 12 year old aren't thrilled with the idea of sharing the kids club with the little kids. How do they separate the older kids? Any idea what kind of activities they have planned for them? Is there ping pong? Basketball hoops? Is there a 24/7 soft serve ice cream like on the Carnival ships? Bonus points if somebody can post the kids club activities for these ages. :cool: Thank you!!

    Norwegian Star water slide removal??

    Oh no! I'm so sorry to read this. My kids are going to be so disappointed. I saw a bunch of pictures with the slides and I never would have thought they were removed. :(
  11. I'm trying to figure out if we will have enough time to do an excursion (private) to the Blue Cave in Kotor. We will be in port from 8:00am - 2:00pm. Is that enough time? If so, can somebody recommend a company to go with? Looks awesome! Thanks.

    MSC Splendia & teens...

    Does the Splendia have a teens/kids club? If so, can somebody post the newsletter of activities or give me some kind of activity of what they offer? What else does the Splendia have for kids ages 11-14? Sports courts? Thank you.

    Canary Island beaches

    Any input on the beaches in the Canary Islands? The cruise we are looking at stops at Canary Islands (Arrecife/Lanzaorte) Canary Islands (Las Palmas) Canary Islands (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) The cruise is at the end of February. Any chance there would be nice beaches to go to in any of these places? I looked at the cruise line excursions and there wasn't anything. I was surprised because I thought there were supposed to be nice beaches here. Thanks! :)

    NCL Spirit for teens

    Can somebody please tell me the age groups for the different clubs on NCL? Also... is there a program for the activities that they do doing the cruise? Thanks. :)
