  1. Makes no sense....why would you lose everything? These cruise companies have low paid staff, overhead costs for the major items (Fuel, Food, etc) that stop when not operating, large collections of physical assets, access to large lines of credit........there is really nothing to show they will go under completely. I am curious as to your thinking with a comment like this... 6&8
  2. We used to sail with NCL, but they have gone way down hill. Ever since the current management took over quality fell and prices went through the roof. The food in the MDR is close to inedible. Royal and Carnival are far better lines overall. The nickel-and-diming on NCL has gotten out of control. We will likely never give them another try after several sub-par cruises.
  3. There is so much included food on the ship, why pay for this? Are the prices super reasonable so it's a great deal? The reviews have been decidedly mediocre, so I am just curious. I have never had a lobster roll and it sounds interesting. What is the cost? 6&8
  4. Not in the least. Only three times have I ever even been aware of a CD. Leigh who was with Royal and was last with Carnival was amazing the two times we sailed with him. He was present, wild, and made the events he ran outstanding. The other was the Couple that works for Royal (Cruise Director and Activities Director). They were TERRIBLE. The wife was the fakest person I had ever met. They also ruined the Quest, turning it into a G rated yawn fest. Other than that on my other......20+ cruises I have been completely unaware of a Cruise Director in either direction.... 6&8
  5. They really need to use Norfolk more. It is a great port, and much easier to get to than Baltimore. 6&8
  6. FTTF is not worth it in any way IMO. Cancel and use that money elsewhere. 6&8
  7. Were you able to make reservations for Hibachi with the Dining package? Did you just walk up to chops and tell them you had the package for the embarkation lunch? 6&8
  8. No reason to be a sit-down place for lunch. Open it for lunch and pump out burgers to go. Would be very simple IMO. 6&8
  9. Carnival manages just fine with Guy's burgers and they are FAR FAR better then what is served at JR. 6&8
  10. $48 is a break even of less than 5 drinks a day. You will also get coffee, milkshakes, bottles of water, energy drinks, etc......Dont second guess, just enjoy. Best part of the drink package is the freedom to try a lot of new drinks.....dont like it, just order something different. 6&8
  11. You seemed to have missed my point....They allowed a very small number of people to buy at $18 (thus taking a likely short term loss) so that they could drive up the overall price long term. This in no way proves your point which I do not agree with at all.
  12. My opinion is that is was NOT a pricing mistake. It was done intentionally. They release a few cruises with the prices at $18. They make a big deal about honoring the "mistake" and then stop discounting the package as deeply moving forward. The masses don't look at Royal, but instead now "blame" it on the $18 mistake. It is a brilliant strategy.... 6&8
