  1. Yes, you are correct. I do believe they had something for the kids. And yes ,you sound like one of the many spirted passengers that had a great time on that cruise. I was worried because it was the first cruise we were ever on that had unlimited drink package that most passengers took advantage of. On top of that there was around 800 singles on board. But everyone was well behaved and we never encountered any idiots . It turned out great. I would go again.
  2. We are latitude level . When and where do you get the free laundry coupon for our booked cruise ?
  3. We were on the Bliss Halloween cruise last year. It was very fun. Yes many dressed up for Halloween . They had a deck party that night that many in costume went. The craziest thing was getting on the elevators with most in costumes. There is a thread on here from last year , and I think maybe a couple youtube videos .
  4. We always try for a lower deck mid ship balcony. I get motion sickness easily, and never had a problem in that location.
  5. We are sailing on the Joy this winter. The Joy is a sister ship of the Bliss. We really enjoyed the Bliss last year. Like stated before, they tried to makeover the ship to be as close as possible the the Bliss. They installed all new carpet, and new lightning in some areas on a ship that is only two years old. Both ships have a great observation decks that makes it perfect for Alaska and Pamama canal trips. The success of the Bliss, and demand for more west coast cruises helped with the decision .
  6. I have a question also about the drink package. The question has nothing to do with tax or tip. I need someone to refresh my memory as I have been on another cruise since we were on the Bliss and don't remember for sure. While on the Bliss, am pretty sure I was able to go to the bar and order two drinks with just my card. That was really nice because I would grab two mojito' s to take back to the balcony for us. Is it still that way? Also, I thought I could get a bottle of water at the bar just by showing card. Is that correct? If I have to buy water, is it priced the same as if you ordered it pre-cruise.
  7. I guess what I am talking about is this, the cruise is seven months out, and the web site shows that there are only GTY balconies available . It doesn't say balconies are sold out, it says they are GTY . It is hard to believe that I would not be able to pick my balcony this early, as i am willing to pay to choose my room. Also, most cruise line web sites show deck plans that clearly show the available rooms left. Easy to determine what rooms are left.
  8. Thank you. Very helpful. Looks like I need to be on top of it around 60 days out. And nice to know you can upgrade.
  9. We just booked a February cruise and got the $99 per person airfare also. (Deal maker for us) So you received your flight information 53 days ahead of the cruise. Did you receive the information via email or by checking your booking on the web site. Once you were able to log into the airlines web site, did you find that the seat assignments they selected had you sitting together. Would their selections have worked out for you? Then when you did change your seat locations, was there many choices ? Thank you. And others that have been through this can chime in too.
  10. We decided on our last cruise to go ahead a try the grantee balcony since it was just the two of us. We ended up directly above the Caravan club on the Bliss. The only bad thing about it was during our nightcap out on our balcony to hear the waves crashing, we could only hear the conversations from the outdoor bar just like if we were there. We saved a few hundred dollars so made the best of it. If you can't beat them, join them. And had fun. What I don't understand is that when I tried to originally book our room, the on-line booking said all they had was GYT. I booked fairly early, and I really wondered why I didn't even have the option to pick my room. Is there a way to find the rooms available to pick. Like the deck plan that shows the reserved rooms like some other cruise lines. Any advice about how to find rooms to pick. Is Norwegian holding rooms out that should be available. What is going on with how Norwegian books rooms. Even though I cruised with them before, I feel lost on there website, like I am missing something.
