  1. The placement of these slides do appear to be crazy. I am predicting problems for NCL exceeding the benefit of the slides. I am not sure who will be using them (kids age 8-12?) and how often. When you get to the bottom it looks like a journey to get back up to the top.
  2. I probably will not be using the discounts. If the 20% one was good through 12/31/23 we would use it. 12/31/22 is too soon and we have a few other getaway's planned to squeeze in a cruise before year end. I will be checking out all cruises just in case😀
  3. I logged onto my account and these show up. I just looked based on another posted topic that mention the 20% discount on their account. I just logged in and find it interested that I would never have known if not for reading it on CC. No notification from NCL that these were posted. Does anyone know why I am getting these? Can they be used together? Thank you CC posters for making me aware of these.

  4. For extra room the angled balconies are great. I had a larger one on the seaside and you could fit 20 people on it. Of course this was in 2018 when the angled balconies were just a balcony. All balconies were the same price. Now they are all different prices depending on location, deck etc.
  5. I won a bid on an upgrade from inside to balcony on 7/23/22 Getaway cruise for $10 over minimum bid. When we got on board first reaction was oh no we will regret this upgrade. We were way up front on deck 13. Long walk to elevator/stair bank. Turns out it was a blessing. We talked to many people near stairs that said the kids were very loud into all hours of the night. Several had to call security at 2-3 AM. We never heard a peep. I guess all locations have their pros and cons.
  6. I just looked at chart and I will be Gold with MSC matching my NCL Platinum status. Most important is the 5% off the cruise fare which looks like you get at all levels.
  7. I had 2 cruises in which I will lose. I am at a higher level now though on another line so maybe I will be higher on MSC when I reapply.
  8. Now this is an explanation that makes some sense. I thank the poster for their opinion on NCL's thinking.
  9. Of course. I do not have an opinion one way or another. I have cruised 2x in the past year and will continue to cruise. I will cruise whether there is a test requirement or not. I do not care one way or the other although no testing makes it a lot easier. I just do not understand the logic.
  10. Got it. No questions on CC unless it is directed to people with specific knowledge of the topic. No opinions or speculation allowed. That won't limit posts much.
  11. My status match has expired because I haven't sailed with MSC since March 2018. I had a March 2020 cruise canceled at last minute (first cancellation due to Covid). It is sort of not my fault. Can I get my status restored or can I reapply for a status match. Will MSC do that a second time or are you one and done?
  12. Vaccinated or non vaccinated can get the virus and pass it on. Actually if the unvaccinated has Covid you may see symptoms. Vaccinated may not shows symptoms but can still pass it on. No symptoms walk on to the ship ready to pass it on. So you can still try to answer my question rather than ask me a question if you can offer any logic to this situation. Even if it is "their rules" please give me a logical explanation.
  13. This really makes no sense. Non vaccinated needs a test. Vaccinated does not need a test. I really need someone to explain this to me.
  14. That is bad news. It would be interesting to know how they choose.
  15. No mini golf on Getaway. Just sailed her last week.
  16. Just off the Getaway last week. I never saw a customer in the American Diner. Almost comical.
  17. Just got off the Getaway. Kept waiting for my $100 shareholder credit to be subtracted from my charges. It wasn't being deducted so I suspected it was not eligible to go against service charges. I checked at customer service and they said no to service charges and no to casino. They said it could be applied to excursions but I already paid for all excursions prior to getting the OBC. Needed to burn $100 somehow or lose it. We bought 2 tee shirts - $20. Waterproof camera case - $15. 2 Ice bar admissions - $36. 1 Deal or no deal entry - $30. Oh well.
  18. So it looks like you got 10% off everything including port charges, taxes and tips (assuming you got free drinks). That is incredible. Usually the 10% is fare only.
  19. Typo - Getaway. I am sure everyone understood. Auto correct.
  20. Got upgraded from inside to balcony on the 7/23/22 Gateway cruise. Bid was $100pp - $200 total.
  21. Good going. I am on the same cruise and anxiously awaiting any news on winning an upgrade. Nothing so far although I see many have been notified on this sailing of a successful bid.
  22. Sailing 7/23/22. GSC visit 7/24/22.
