  1. Thanks all!! I have only booked a dive through the ship once due to time restrictions in Bonaire. There were 20 of us on one boat and 2 DM's/ needless to say i didn't even get on the boat. Plus so much better one on one service through a private op. They "get to know you" in the first 10 minutes for your safety and theirs so i will always go the indi route or not at all. I will look into all the recommendations you have provided. Again thank you all!
  2. Do you recommend diving at the following and if so with whom? Ocho Rios (think i may not haven't heard good things about diving in Jamaica in general) Grand Cayman (100% for sure on this one unless there are tender issues) Roatan (100% for sure on this one) Used Coconut diving last time but conditions were Horrible. Coz (on the fence have dove 2x already) Used H2O but looking for other op this time. Also anyone know how the private islands work when trying to set up outside dive's? We stop at Great stirrup Cay and Harvest Cay. I am thinking those 2 may be a wash if i cant get a private vendor. TIA 🙂
  3. I dived with bas a few years back and really enjoyed it. He and his staff make it a really great experience.
  4. i am wondering when NCL "opens" the booking option for sail away rooms? I am looking at a cruise for end of Jan 2020 on the Breakaway. The Sail Away's are listed but all sold out. thinking they are holding them back and will open them at a later time but when? i am also wondering if the Next cruise certs can be used to purchase a sail away class cabin. TIA everyone
  5. We chose the Dining and the 50$ excursion credit. We also had a 50$ excursion credit for it being a "distinctive voyage" when we booked (making in 100/port credit) so we were easily able to find beach breaks for @ 50$/person through the ship. if you figure they are giving you 50$ a day on an 11 port stop cruise that is like them giving you 550$ to spend. granted the choices are limited most times through the ship but it was what worked best for us in our situation. Good luck choosing!
  6. The bold doesn't show up on all devises or platforms. I would just type it out CRUCON.
  7. Here is my upgrade data: Sailing out of San juan 1/27 Dawn Orig booked Obstructed ocean view with a ton of "perks" (free tax day, distinctive voyages, etc etc) 1249 guest fare 1265 out the door. offer to upgrade to Balc or Mini suite. Chose mini suite bid at low fair range, still under the going guaranteed rate for mini on the site now w. the 20% latitudes reward promo. (1549 guest fare 1710 out the door) Considered rebooking but would lose all the "perks" so we cant do that bit. Question to you all is with all the things NCL may or may not consider when granting upgrade bids....do you think the bonus perks you select have a bearing? ie since we didn't chose the Unlimited drinks would that make a difference? or is the consensus that they go on base fare?
  8. Sorry but what is the site i must be missing the bold? any addtl clues would be appreciated :)
