  1. I know this is somewhat selfish on my part, but my upcoming sailing docks in Brooklyn on 5/24/2019 so I appear to be safe for now. 😉 I’m certainly not happy about this kind of behavior by any company, but I would bet that a decision of this magnitude would spend years being appealed before any such draconian measures were enacted. Once the lawyers are done yelling at each other, wrists will be slapped, tongues will be clucked, and not much of anything will be accomplished.
  2. I cruised Alaska in May a few years back. There were days when I needed a jacket, a sweater underneath, gloves and a scarf. It was pretty cold when we sailed into Glacier Bay in particular, although not so cold that I didn’t get to see the glaciers calving in spots. The sound was amazing. There were also days I could walk about in shirtsleeves and a few hardy souls even hopped in the pool. The advice about layers is really spot on. I wish you as nice a weather as I had, there wasn’t a day I didn’t need my sunglasses. You will love your journey, Alaska is truly beautiful!
  3. Early in a cruise, especially a long one, it’s Classic Margaritas, salt on the rim, ALL NIGHT. 😎 Then about half way thru I think of the carbs. Then it’s Vodka and tonic for my first drink, then vodka and club soda for the rest of the night. Sometimes it’s a long night. Thank God for the UBP!😂
  4. I think it’s too soon to say. I’m sure there will be a few glitches in the beginning but I’m hopeful that all will be well!
  5. I don’t like to advise folks on dietary measures but being a diabetic (I am type 2 if that matters)does not mean you can’t drink. I agree, the fruity drinks are too high in carbs except for an occasional treat, but vodka itself has 0 carbs and you can always request grey goose in your glass of club soda and lemon. That drink is carb free and harmless to your blood sugar. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. My fiancé and I will be on your cruise, it’s the first leg of our honeymoon . I’ve booked airfare with British Airways to London as we’re going to stay on the British seaside for a few days before we head home on the QM2. The airfare for the two of us ran about $765. I have found that air prices typically go UP if you wait till the last minute. The NCL price you quoted is certainly reasonable, as long as you’re flexible about the arrangements. If YOU want to make the travel choices yourself, I would steer away from budget airlines, primarily because of cancellations, without satisfactory backup flights available to get on. The luggage restrictions on budget airlines also eat up a lot of your potential savings. I think you get what you pay for. I hope we see you aboard! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Because I love it. There is no place I’d rather be than on a ship, sailing I don’t care where. Sailing started alone, and I loved that. Then I found the woman I love and sailing with her is even better. We can share some experiences and have time alone to reflect as well. There is always something to do, even if it’s nothing.

  8. I’ve been on the Sun twice. First time was a Thanksgiving cruise out of Tampa. Second time Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. If you have a spa pass you can always wear your robe back to your cabin. They never say anything. You also get a chance to find a large one that way if you’re lucky. I’m 6’3” and a lot of the robes are too damn small! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  10. Seven layer chocolate cake in Cagney's. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. They say allow 7 to 14 days. I sent a photo of my room card back in July and never got a response, but I had a lot of trouble with the web site, I think they're overloaded with requests. I called again this week and turns out that they want a screen shot of the Lattitudes status page, I guess since it shows the logo, your latitudes number status and name. A nice young lady on the phone asked me to hold while she attached it to my original app and made sure it got to the right department. She assured me everything would be good and asked that I allow them some time to process it. Two hours later I got my confirmation from Voyagers Club that I was now Black status and gave me my new number. I still love NCL but if I find a good deal I'll give them a try!

  12. Sure, next time you take me to an Expo’s game.[emoji6] Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. It's a great show, but not for kids. Lock them in the bathroom and go, you'll enjoy it![emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. According to the FAQ section in Latitude Rewards, there are no destination restrictions, but you can’t cruise during a Holiday (I read that as Thanksgiving and Christmas) week. Pretty nice, a free balcony cruise in Hawaii. Enjoy![emoji41] Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. Well I finally hit Platinum Plus last year and I've had 15 cruises with NCL going back to 2012. All I know is I'm 446 points away from Ambassador and by that time they'll be called Norwegian SPACE Lines! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
