  1. She should find out what her vifp # is if she doesn’t already know it. Write it down somewhere so you know where it is when you book a cruise. When you book give them the vifp# first and they can pull all your info up for the booking. That way you will always get credit for your cruises. After you give them the vifp info and they pull up the information then you can tell them the new changes to your name and they can input it in the system. I had an issue before with having two different vifp #’s because my last name has two words in it. Some of my cruises they booked it with both last names combined as one word. I called and had them combined and put on one vifp#. My kids and my wife are listed as travel companions so as soon As I give them my number their info also comes up so they can add them to the booking without having to give them the info over the phone.
  2. Who gave you that bad information. Free at sea is just the name of the promotions. If you choose the drink package it is good as soon as you step on the ship until the bars close the night before u leave the ship. Doesn’t matter if you are at sea or in a port you can get drinks for free on your drink package. When you board the ship and are still in us waters you will pay local tax on the drinks you order. So if you order a $10 drink on the ship while you are still in Miami or us waters u will pay Miami sales tax. If the Miami sales tax is 6% you will get a bill for .60 cents
  3. They will let you know on the ship. I have been on 15 cruises and they have only changed the ship time once to account for the time change and that was in Alaska. So there is a possibility on your cruise they will. My cruise was on NCL out of Vancouver. The night before we got to Ketchikan the official ship time was changed. There was paperwork in the cabin about it to let everyone know.
  4. exactly! how many employees in these ports would be out of work? how much lost revenue would occur in each city that houses the US ports? how much would each state and each city in which these ports reside lose in tax income from the cruise line? not to mention how much money would citizens of the US and the world lose because their cruise has been cancelled? because of all these underlying factors this is exactly what it is a threat that will never happen. you want to punish the corporation then punish the corporation with heavy fines, but don't punish people who have nothing to do with it.
  5. You don’t get priority tender tickets. When you check in on the first day to pick your cabana you will be given a excursion certificate and paperwork that tells you what time to meet on the day you are at HMC. On that day you meet at the designated venue usually the theater at the specified time. This is where everyone meets that have excursions or priority tender. They will call you by excursions and as a group you board the first tender to the island. You show your excursion certificate as you get on the tender. The people in your group just follow with you. They will not worry about counting how many people are with you. They will just guide you on the tender.
  6. Oh I know that. Luckily they are not big soda drinkers. They have been on over 10 cruises but only the 1 on NCL. I usually put like $70 each on their S&S card for the week and they can get whatever they want. But once it’s gone it’s gone😀
  7. Great. Thanks. The last time I took them on an NCL cruise it was an older ship and didn’t have local or sheenhans. The 24 hour food option was in the sports bar.
  8. It’s the same. No extra charge for mixers
  9. my Kids love hot wings. I was wondering if my 13yr old son and 10yr old daughter can go to the local restaurant by themselves and order hot wings and soda since it is a complimentary restaurant. Or does an adult have to be with them to order.
  10. we usually get cheers and my wife likes to drink wine especially red wine. wine by the glass at the bars is pretty much the same you might have only 2 red wine selections. the dinning room has a better wine list and should offer more choices by the glass. my wife often goes to the steak house and gets wine at the bar and takes it back to whatever bar i'm at. the steak house house the best wine list and the most wine by the glass selections. most people don't know about the bar at the steak house or don't think you can go to it unless you are dining at the steak house.
  11. for some reason they have stopped putting the different type of liquor and the corresponding prices on the menus. i guess that way they can raise prices without changing the menus. they did this a couple of years ago. they have most of the typical liquors what are you looking for.
  12. Here are the alcohol choices available with the UBP that you can choose when you book a cruise. They have put back Grey Goose vodka as free with the package https://www.ncl.com/sites/default/files/premium-beverage-package.pdf
  13. From your pictures it looks like they brought the price of grey goose back down to $14.95 so it will be covered under the plan. That’s good. People were posting before that grey goose was now an insane $21 a drink
  14. a shot of patron reposado is $23 that is insane!
  15. that seems high. i have had 4 up sell calls. from an inside to a balcony has always been $250 total. once on the glory i had a choice $250 to go from inside to balcony or $300 to go to aft wrap around balcony. i of course jumped all over the aft wrap around balcony. that was the best cabin i have ever had.
