  1. We were on the Spirit in December and had the Upgraded package and had no problems with Veuve , we had it at every dinner and also at the different bars.
  2. Doug, it was fun meeting you and Sue on the Joy. I love your reviews but you gotta enjoy the cruise too! I am with Sue in that! Hopefully Chad and I will meet up with you two again sometime on another cruise! Kerry and Chad Wilson
  3. I know it sucks not to going to Mykonos and Santorini. But the new times for the ports are much better! You get more time in Dubrovnik, Corfu and In a couple more of the ports. Dubrovnik was such a short stop, it would have been nice to stay longer.
  4. Have a wonderful fun transatlantic! It was great meeting you and Sue on the Joy! Are you going to Miami for the Inaugural at all as well? We will be on her on the 17th. Looking forward to watching your trip now! Kerry and Chad Wilson
  5. So we did the Premium Plus (PPB) beverage upgrade and I will tell you for us it was worth it... and we are not heavy drinkers. We were on the Star a couple weeks ago. But to give an idea: Fresh OJ 14 glasses (2each morning) 3.00 each 9 bottles of Aqua Panna water with meals 6.00 each 10 bottles of Veuve Clicquot... ok ok.. a lot! But one with every dinner and others enjoyed with friends! I would ask for a glass and they would respond , do you want the bottle? 99.00 each and ask how many glasses we wanted. This was at restaurants and also at Gatsby’s bar outside Le Bistro. 4 Starbucks drink ranged around 5 each .. I do not think it is given on bigger ships where they take the gift cards, but since this was at the Atrium coffee it was. Remy Martin VSOP a couple times 30.00 each Whistle Pig rye 35.00 ( Husband wanted to try) Jadot Pouilly Fuisse was 27 a glass. Plus Pepsi’s like normal and other regular drinks like aperol spritz, beer and coladas, wine etc.... It was not hard to make up the extra cover charge for it . Just wanted to give you all an overview on how well it works. The crew was great, the first lunch in Sheehan’s the waitress gave us the bar menus so we knew what we could get. She said some people didn’t realize until half way through . Hope this helps!
  6. We were also explained for the early departure from Croatia had to do with getting back to Venice as well.. the captain is given a time frame to get into port. So to make that , for us it was 6:30 I think it was we had to pull out early to make the window or the ship would have had to wait another two hours to pull back into Venice. We got to Croatia early so we actually got on to shore by 7 am from the tender so we took advantage of the full morning we had there then got in line before 11:30 as the Line gets long to get on the tender back.
  7. So we did not make it on the sailing of the 13th to Kotor. We were given the leaving time of 8:30 from the Harbor Master. I guess there are 5 leaving slots that they rotate the cruise ships thru. It takes 45 minutes for each ship to get out of the port with the pilot boats. And another 45 for the tugs to get back. We were told we we have to go 28 knots to make it to Kotor and the ship is max 24. So once there , there are are 3 tender slots... one is 20 minute ride to shore next out is 30 minutes out and the other is 45 out . The shore is too rough and can scratch the ship to port at Kotor. So if we went we would have gotten off to just have to turn back. They still do the Tech stop to be out of the EU for the taxes for us on board ( so we do not have to pay them the whole cruise) Hope this explains a bit better! They did a great job explaining it to us all!
  8. I sail on the 13th and we were notified that we are Not going to Kotor, leaving Venice at 8:30pm. Our itinerary shows the update. my PCC showed it was for the 13th and 20th sailing .
  9. Does not show any obc. She said it is not to get it, but asked if I knew a name or a reservation number that had it so she could check on it for me.
  10. No , I took air so it is not a choice . And I took the beverage and dining package as my perks. It showed on the right side with the pricing summery where is listed what you picked with the total pricing and deposit .
  11. Mine has both, was just the 20% last month. But as of yesterday was added to have both. My new email PDF does not show OBC. I questioned since I did see it say 50 with the choices , I should have taken a screenshot of it.
  12. If anyone with the 20%off and now added the extra point per night and got the Latitudes 50.00 obc, would not mind letting me know a reservation number I would be grateful. i emailed my PPC to add it to mine for my 2021 Alaska, price stayed the same, just ten more per person for the increased dining plan. But it does not have the obc... I know when I priced it last night it showed and this morning but it doesn’t now when you do it on the site. She asked and they said it is just the extra point. But said she can see if I know of someone else who got it. thank you ! Kerry
  13. Here is what is included... https://www.ncl.com/terms/premium-beverage-package https://www.ncl.com/sites/default/files/premium-beverage-package-2019.pdf
  14. I don’t know for sure, it just seems to be the trend the port master has been doing reading rolls for other weeks . fingers crossed that we do go! Kerry
