  1. They don’t charge you extra. I was parked there during Hurricane Sandy and we were delayed returning. There was No additional costs. They have a Max Cost for parking. You pay on the way in.
  2. I normally use cash. My family wife, 2 daughters and I. I start off with around $700. Then monitor my account and add as needed. I use to use a Credit Card. However they put a hold on it day one of $1800. So we rather just go with cash instead of playing with the holds.
  3. You will definitely make the early show. As far as the Haven seats. They are sectioned off to the left side about half way up. When I was in the Haven I chose to skip the section and instead sit in the middle section. The only good thing is you know if you are running late you have that seating area until 15 minutes before the show. Then they open it up to everyone and standby guests.
  4. Normally the bar tenders let you get a soda for your child as a second drink. However on my cruise in November 2019. A lady did it in front of one of the “Bar Supervisors” and he said nicely you really can’t be doing that and she responded very nasty to him. He said and not sure if he did it that he was going to cancel her package and make her pay for her drinks for violating the terms and conditions. They were arguing for quite a while. So just be careful and don’t do it right in front of them.
  5. When I was on the Breakaway in Nov 2019 there was themed dinner nights at the buffet Every Night. The service was good. However the food quality did go down some. I’m going on the Encore in April 2020 so I will if it gets better or continues to decline.
  6. I took a Lyft XL from FLL to a Hotel in Brickell (Miami) and it was only $70 at 4pm. Uber was quoting between $80-100 when I priced them. So we went with Lyft XL.
  7. I am flying into FLL on Friday and staying at a Hotel in Brickell for my cruise that leaves on Sunday out of POM. We plan on taking an Uber XL from FLL to the Hotel.

    Hair braiding

    I was wondering if they do Hair Braiding close to the pier. My daughter wants to try and wait to the last port we go to to have her hair braided. Otherwise I think she will just get it done in St. Thomas.
  9. Thank you.... I had thought it was Old San Juan but when I googled it, it said port was permanently closed. So wasn’t sure if it was still not operational. Glad to hear we sail in there. Still wish it wasn’t so late at night though (5:30pm)
  10. I’m sailing on the NCL Breakaway in November. We sailing in at night. I was wondering which of the ports the ship will dock at. So I can try and see what is around the ship. Thank you in advance.
  11. Always recieve an email receipt within minutes of making my partial payments. Check your email junk folder. Maybe they are going there.
  12. I have a portable TENS machine. Do you know if the Cruise Line would have a problem with me bringing it?
  13. My family and I sailed on the Breakaway in the Haven. My sister and her husband were not in the haven. I sent a request to the pre concierge in advance asking if they could check in with us. They pre approved it. They had to check in then were allowed to join us in the haven area. Their names and cabin numbers were on the pre approved list. We did see another family that tried it at the pier and didn't get pre approval get denied. So I suggest you seek the pre approval. We were told if they chose to eat in the haven restraurant there would be a fee. However we felt uncomfortable and decided to head to the buffet. The only other time they came in the haven area was when I asked the concierge if he could show them around. I believe as long as you ask permission and they can do it they will accommodate it.
  14. If the non Haven guests are a small party you might be lucky. I would request it with the concierge prior to your cruise so they can pre approve it. I did it that way when I stayed in the haven with my family and my sister and husband were non haven guests. They checked in and then joined us in the haven waiting room as they were on the list the employee had. I did see a family try and do it that day and were denied. This was at the NY Pier. Hope this helps. We didn't eat in the haven restraurant when we boarded. We instead went to the buffet as I felt uncomfortable even bringing them in even though they would be paying for their lunch.
  15. I was able to use mine that expires in July 2019 for my November 2019. However I also was told if I cancel or rebook and don't use it by that date I lose it.
