  1. Even though this is not an NCL ship I thought I would share info here. Prayers going out to Passenger and crew that they all are safe. Another good reason to take the Muster Safety drill seriously Cruise liner with 1,300 passengers calls MAY DAY as it drifts towards Norwegian coastline in heavy winds Viking Sky suffered engine failure and rescue helicopters are evacuating people Passengers have been airlifted to a village near Molde on Norway's west coast Wind was blowing at a speed of 38 knots at the time of the incident https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6842479/Cruise-liner-1-300-passengers-calls-DAY-drifts-land.html
  2. If the new wardrobe is designer garments or items made with more expensive material such as silk or cashmere then I would think this is an upgrade not an upsell. Now back to the subject at hand..............
  3. I would equate the MDR to banquet venues. Most food is already prepared and plated as they orders come in.
  4. Some Travel Agencies give additional OBC or offer extras like free insurance. Other may be first time cruisers who rely on a professional to guide them to the right cruise line and itinerary. I always book directly.
  5. Even though inside and balcony cabins have access along with Suites , Carnival did dip their toe in the water with the Havana Area..
  6. Yes and after they retrofit cruise ships with porthole windows that open, airlines can do the same on their planes.
  7. If I had a Nickel for every time NCL missed GSC, I'd have a lot of Nickels.. Now that Royals new pier on Coco Cay (island next door) is just about ready I'm a little green with envy.
  8. I would assume NCL's team of attorneys offered the passenger an option to settle for far less to avoid a trial ? Will it be more difficult for NCL to appeal due to the fact Royal was ordered to pay out even more in that case mentioned in same article ?
  9. Because Haven people are to classy to pee in those hot tubs ?
  10. I would say bring them in checked luggage. Worst case scenario they are confiscated by NCL. If that were to happen they would give them back to you before you disembark. Wouldn't hurt if you were to bring a letter from your physician explaining you are on special diet requiring the shakes.
  11. You have to wonder how many more folks would opt for "sail away" fare vs. Free at Sea if they were able to choose their cabin ?
  12. Current sea conditions on Long Island Sound: STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EST THIS EVENING THIS AFTERNOON W winds 30 to 35 kt, becoming 25 to 35 kt late. Gusts up to 50 kt. Seas 5 to 7 ft. TONIGHT W winds 25 to 30 kt with gusts up to 45 kt, diminishing to 20 to 25 kt with gusts up to 40 kt after midnight. Seas 4 to 7 ft, subsiding to 3 to 5 ft after midnight
  13. My only issue with those tasty last minute "Sail away" rates is you cannot pick your cabin. I am not willing to get a cabin all the way forward , aft, or under a busy area such as the pool or DR. Due to the spike in fares my upcoming cruises are inside with 1 Perk. Has anyone had success booking a Sail away early on with the ability to select a cabin ?
  14. Someone has to pay for the 11 new ships by 2027......
