  1. Guessing the bars themselves will have prices printed but they may not be placing the folders on all the tables like they have in the past.
  2. I'm thinking "first night, first cruise back" might explain at least some of the odd sounding activity. Perhaps also with the stock in the shops and maybe even the wines not being completely refreshed and set yet? Thanks again Lisa for all your efforts at keeping us up to date! I do believe those are new elevator doors you pictured earlier, I don't remember those in December 2019, but there's a lot I'm sure I've forgotten about BC!
  3. Happy to read that everything is going so well to this point. Wishing you and all passengers and crew aboard NA the very best. I would have a hard time myself trying to catch my breath being on that cruise, I would be so excited! 😁🤪 Bon voyage!

  11. Correct! Up to 4 adults. And much more expensive now than formerly.
  12. They do this so there is no conflict with any other excursions that you might purchase at Half Moon Cay. Otherwise, the website would show you a conflict and might prevent you from purchasing say, the horseback riding.
  13. I did not say tips for cabana personnel was covered in the HSC. I said I expected it was covered in the daily charge for the cabana, if there is a gratuity collected in that charge at all. The deck/pool stewards assigned to the cabanas generally don't receive gratuities unless they are part of the lido dining or bar staff. Bar stewards are covered by the gratuities collected on drinks ordered when there is a charge for them. I also pointed out that additional tipping is always optional and up to the individual. The available literature for cabanas (located here) does not specif
