  1. If you are referring to the SkyRide in St Thomas, the excursion ticket is not a timed ticket. There is no set meeting time for this excursion. You would simply walk off the ship, and present your NCL excursion ticket for admittance onto the tram once you arrive. The excursion ticket is valid anytime during the SkyRide business hours during your day in port. We have taken advantage of the SkyRide tickets in St Thomas through NCL with the Shore Excursion Credit, as they are essentially free.
  2. I hope you are having a wonderful cruise aboard Getaway! We have an upcoming 14-night cruise on Getaway, and I'm wondering how long Hanno will be onboard. I have had a couple previous cruises with him as the concierge and would be delighted to see him again. Save travels and happy cruising! - Khristine -
  3. We plan to do the Haven at some point, but we will only do that on one of Norwegian's mega-ships. We sailed the Inaugural on the Escape several years ago, and some friends of ours were in the Haven. We were given a brief tour, and we know enough to realize that the smaller NCL ships don't offer what we would be looking for when it comes to the Haven experience. Ironically, the Escape has been my least favorite of the Norwegian ships. We really enjoy the Jewel Class most of all as well as the Sun. I'm thrilled that you are in your "dream suite". I know you'll enjoy the private Haven pool area, and my husband is jealous. I put in a pathetic bid for the H4 knowing that it would not be enough. He'll survive with the SC, and we can use the second bedroom to store our luggage. 😳 We will enjoy the suite perks; I've been lucky enough to have them once in the past while sailing in a balcony cabin......long story as to how that came to be! See you onboard in a couple weeks; join the Roll Call for the Meet & Greet if you are interested. - Khristine -
  4. We have just received THE email everyone bidding waits to receive........."You've been awarded an upgrade advantage!" We are sailing on the Gem departing from NYC on November 15th so we are 17 days away from sail-away. We were originally booked in a BB category balcony stateroom on Deck 10, and we will now be in an SC 2-bedroom family suite! We were also bidding on two different Haven categories, and all of my bids were bare minimum. I modified our bids lowering them after noticing that the minimum bids had been lowered on the upgrade advantage site roughly 10 days ago. Everyone needs to periodically check to see if that's the case for your respective sailings. It's been 18 years since we've sailed in a suite; we're looking forward to it as it may be another 18 years before we're in a suite again! 😳
  5. YAY!! You're back home to you Roll Call! Have a great cruise, and we'll try to take good care of the Gem for you.
  6. I just noticed something else.......be sure you are clicking on the Norwegian Gem Roll Calls and not the line of text below that the begins with a star icon followed by the language "Find Your Norwegian Gem Roll Call". When I did the latter, I could not locate your Roll Call either. Why does this have to be so darn complicated??
  7. Ah, I understand the issue now. After the update to Cruise Critic, I had the same issue when utilizing the "Find Your Roll Call" function. I was able to easily locate my Roll Call by going to the Roll Call section on the homepage of the boards, then choosing NCL, and finally choosing the Norwegian Gem section. Make sense? That's how I went about checking to make sure your Roll Call was still there a few minutes ago. You'll be embarking the Gem as we disembark. Happy day for you, sad day for us! - Khristine -
  8. I see the Roll Call you are looking for with no problem. It was started months ago by Peg013.
