  1. We were on Christmas and new year. Starbucks in the Atrium lovely manager and staff
  2. We did the same. Currently on the Christmas and New Year Sailing. Not the best of cruises even for the price. The crew are absolutely amazing and the food very good. No entertainment worth watching or what does sound good is in the small Windjammer. Only buffet food during the day in very crowded areas . NCL is our favourite cruise line but this sailing is giving many on board, including us, doubts about booking with them again
  3. Hi Unvaccinated visitors to Spain just need a negative test certificate on Embarkation. Covid status is not checked at ports of call, only at airports/ferry ports entering Spain from another country
  4. Hi Hamrag We have, a two nighter followed by a 7 night cruise and diamond meal on both sailings
  5. understand what your saying ugagrad97 but regardless of any Companies' website or T & Cs those are the entry requirements set by the Spanish Government. We are on the Prima TA from Southampton on the 23rd September 2022. NCl have done away with COVID testing but the Canadian Government require it pre embarkation. We have the test on the 21st September and have a one port stop in Canada on the 3rd October which makes any tests out of date but its Canada's rule so we either produce a negative test result or we don't board the ship
  6. Non vaccinated can now enter Spain (by flight, ship or vehicle etc) from 12th June 2022. They need to show a negative pcr or antigen test. Vaccinated entrants must have had a booster (no time limit) or their last vaccination between 14 and 270 days/
  7. Yes to both, its on the NCL website and still applies even if you stay on board. Our TA leaves the UK on the 23rd September and we are being tested on the 21st. We dont reach Canada (one port stop) until October 3rd which to us makes the rule in in our opinion, a nonsense as its 12 days from testing. However, its the only way to sail so we will obviously be tested
  8. This makes our TA crazy re testing. We embark in Southampton UK on the 23rd September. We will need to test 2 days before (within the restrictions) . Making that 11 to 12 days before we reach Canada, which is not the disembarkation port.
  9. Our TA on the Prima this September has been very active from the day the itinerary was released. Its now standing at just under two thousand posts and as we get nearer its expected to liven up even more. The one on social media is active but nowhere near the CC critic one
  10. Ours too has changed to guarantee and there only seems to be availability for one YC.
  11. Hi Momto3girls, we fly Iberia often as its a Spanish airline. Usually the flights are pretty full so we always book and pay for our seats. Our next one is New York to Barcelona in October after the Prima T.A. with flights booked through NCL. The seats together (extra leg room) were only around 40or 60 euro each so to us well worth it. Personally on a flight more than 3 hours duration we would always opt for the booked seat option but of course its a matter of choice.
  12. Hi Pennyspain, If like us, you booked through the U.K. office then as your agent says you will of course get a refund on gratuities, shore excursions etc. Sadly though you will not get your deposit (CruiseNext) refunded or any other payment for the cruise itself. Has your insurance covered this part it should do? Hope your husband is on the mend and you can look forward to cruising again soon
  13. May be an idea to check your method of payment. Our credit available on our credit card changed by the bid amount 2 days before we were notified that it was an acceptable bid. We were in the exact same position, and there was no YC available on the web or by phoning direct at any time but we still got one. Did think to leave the purchase of the drinks package until day 2 to make the price the same as online if our bid was not accepted.
  14. Sorry posted without finishing. It is 1st doses unless you have had a booster. Although if you have had the booster then the six months does not apply. It is not very clear is it?
  15. Hi Kandmd no, you will keep the experience you booked. The only exception is an upgrade to Yacht Club, where you get all the YC benefits included.
  16. MSC UK answered the phone within 2 minutes and spoke with a very pleasant agent called Cassia. We have had our YC upgrade bid accepted this morning so wanted to check up on a couple of queries. We have excursions booked at very reasonable prices so wasn't too concerned. Happy to hear though that from 22nd March passengers will be able to once again without MSC excursions.

  18. We are on the Fastasia 1st week of April 2022. Email arrived today from MSC stating cruise excursions only. This is also to include the whole of Spain (we are Spanish Residents). For us its not a problem as we booked in December under these conditions but for others it could be a deal breaker. The U.K website says possibly April but not April 1st for independent excursions but its not looking to be the case unless its late in the month.
  19. We are on the Prima TA September 2022. When I read about the menu changing I wasn't too bothered. If I don't need to shop, cook and clear then I am happy. Husband on the other hand, (who has no part in the previous) wasn't too happy with the idea. Not a defender of NCL at all cost but had to point out that our favourite local restaurant has had the same menu for 15 years. Added to that, we have 4 free at sea, 2 Latitude, the local and the buffet. Result one happy husband
  20. we have done this twice without any issues. disembarked Barcelona as its nearer to where we live, we just let reception know the day before
  21. Hi Go4Golf Have you sailed within the last 3 years you need this to maintain your level or go back to basic member. They did increase this to 4 due to not sailing the first year of covid so you may still qualify but need to send in the dates etc., by email to query it
