  1. Breakfast and lunch for Haven guests on the Jewel is in Moderno, midship on Deck 13. There is a bar inside Moderno called Mojito.
  2. I tried to access the Australian NCL website on my cruise to NZ and it automatically defaulted to the NZ website even though I put in the au at the end.
  3. I've just booked an 8 day cruise in a mini suite on the Pacific Adventure.
  4. Hey Geoffery Mark said we paid $48 for the share taxi to the airport. My DH & I drove out to Cradle Mountain. The road was narrow and windy. We arrived a little after midday, way to fast given the weather conditions (raining). Whilst we ate lunch in the very small cafe the rain stopped and sthe sun came out. We then caught the shuttle to Dove Lake. In retrospect I would have driven into the park instead. As previously mentioned there are plenty of other places to visit that are closer unless you really want to see Cradle Mountain NP which I did.
  5. I sailed on the Jewel Vancouver to Honolulu in October and it didn't mention on the itinerary sailing past the Na Pali coast but we spent hours sailing the Na Pali coast.
  6. My DH & I sailed on the Jewel 10 day to NZ in December. This was my fourth time on the Jewel. I love the size of the Jewel (approx. 2400 pax). The crew were great, very friendly and helpful. The ports in NZ are excellent. 1. How was the service? Excellent 2. How was the food quality & variety? We enjoyed all our meals. The only negative is my DH ordered two courses to my one and twice they were brought out almost simultaneously. 3. How's the entertainment? I really enjoyed the shows especially Rock you Tonight and Velvet. The band is from Columbia. I also really enjoyed the pianist. 4 Are there any dance class during the day? Yes. They had two or three dance classes in Spinnaker Lounge 5. Would you recommend this particular ship? Absolutely
  7. We had one on our recent Jewel sailing with the card showing the time change leaning against it.
  8. I booked a cruise to New England 2020 on my cruise. I was able to use two cruise next certificates for our inside cabin and received an upgrade which enabled us to receive a free at sea offer. The cruise booking was transferred to my TA and I received a further discount through them.
  9. I purchased 3 USD$100 gift cards which I used as my onboard credit on my cruise last month. The exchange rate was better than if I had paid later using my C/C.
  10. My DH used the ferry to the mainland. He obtained his ticket on the island near where the boat leaves from. He was pre-allocated a return time. If he had chosen to take a later boat there was no guarantee he could get on the boat as the people allocated to that hours boat were given priority. He caught a 10am boat and returned at 2pm. The ferry trip is 30mins each way. There were a few shops and a couple of women selling souvenirs. He found a really good coffee shop(turn right after getting off the boat, then left) with good coffee and had free wifi.
  11. I had the same concern with Daniel's Sloth Hangout as our ship also didn't arrive into port until 10am. When I contacted them they guaranteed we would still get to hold a sloth as were were a private tour. Hopefully Bodden will be the same.
  12. My DH used the ferry in April. He bought the ticket 10m from where the boats depart to Placencia. When he purchased his ticket he was told which boat he had to return to the island on. Not everyone stuck to their allocated return time which made things a little bit tricky.
  13. Hi Turtle06 I finally found a way to permanently log out so I could do a mock booking so I could see the savings. As I mentioned when I tried to do a mock booking before I was pretty happy with the price, AUD$4590 per cabin with the drinks package(NCL had automatically applied the 20% discount on the booking). When I did the booking without the login it showed I would have saved AUD$500pp on an inside. Unfortunately my DH has kyboshed any bookings for next year at the moment. Thanks for taking the time to walk me through the process. Enjoy your cruise.
  14. Hi Turtles06 I followed the exact directions as posted. I also did a mock booking without the 20% by just logging in as usual and the prices were exactly the same . Then I noticed with both bookings it says because you are a Latitudes member we have reduced your fare by 20%. I have no idea how much the discount actually is as I can't see the original price. I tried to use my phone but apparently that is also linked to NCL.
  15. I was looking at the Jade repositioning cruise from Barcelona to New York October 2020. I made sure I didn't use the sailaway price but the price didn't change :(.
