  1. I agree! Also, I've definitely have switched seats so parents could sit with their kids (flight attendant approved) before. Most people are understanding if you just ask them and explain the situation (Providing that they aren't asking you to give up a different class of seat)
  2. Really? I have always thought that NCL mixed drink prices were really affordable, especially for being at sea. I know I paid WAY more per drink on RCI!
  3. I agree with most of the posts here about the pricing being insane from Sailaway rate to "perk" rate. On our last RCI cruise, we didn't do the drink package because it was 800.00 for both of us and paid as we went...which basically equaled us not drinking. I don't know about you guys, but whenever I see it go on my bill, even though I KNOW its irrational, I don't want to have that bill be so big at the end of the cruise, even if it WOULD have evened/been less than if we HAD bought the package. It's a complete mental thing for me, I like to have a pretty all inclusive onboard experience because otherwise I am just a penny pincher onboard. In the interest of discussion, I think i got a pretty good deal this time around with my TA on our Getaway Feb 24th sailing. She is paying our beverage tips/room tips instead of giving us OBC, so we are paying 1850.00 for two people in an inside cabin, where we got to pick the room (deck 12 I think) with the UBP, no extra gratuities. Ended up being a savings of around 450.00 over booking through the cruiseline. I do think this was a pretty massive deal, which I doubt we will ever get again. Plus I had a 250.00 FCC which brought our price down to 1600 for two people, so 800.00 for two people with alcohol for 7 days = a fun time to be had 😄
  4. I never get when people freak out about what other people are wearing while eating. Honestly, my eyes barely leave my plate and I don't pay attention to other tables unless its a big family drama show or something.
  5. Surprised to see this thread! I am a go with the flow person, and I wouldn't have been upset at any of these things. However, on my last cruise on the Escape, I got seating in the MDR and sitting there for 1 hr with our menus and no one took our order, we got up and left. I mentioned it politely to the maitre d at the front and she went above and beyond for me the rest of the week. I've always had any slight problems I have had with NCL fixed with such detail. For example, with the MDR situation, I got a free meal at Food Republic, as well as 2 bottles of wine of my choice off the menu. Really, the whole thing was WAY too overboard as I wasn't even mad about waiting in the MDR for that long. I understand that other people would have been mad, but ultimately, I'm on vacation to have a good time, not to sweat the small stuff. Just try to enjoy yourself and let all this other stuff go!
  6. WOW that is so awesome, how did you make them?
  7. I went to hamilton even though we docked at kings wharf. Wasn't really too impressed with hamilton, at least the part that I toured...thats just me though!
  8. I was on the Getaway in 2014, and yes the raspberry mojitos were better that year than they have been recently. I think it's more that the premixing of the drinks just doesn't make them taste as good. I totally understand why they have to do it though
  9. OH NO, that's my favorite drink! 😞 I will miss it a lot, although since they started premixing it, it just hasn't been the same! They used to make it from scratch and it was HEAVENLY then.
  10. I would just pay as you go! The actual pricetag NCL has on their drink package is quite high, because of the free UBP almost everyone has. I felt like the drink prices were VERY reasonable (Cheaper than a la carte drink prices on Royal Caribbean) and there are days where you can get a some discounts on drinks, although I remember seeing some drinks for sale out poolside for like 6.00 each + gratuity!
  11. I was just going to post about this! Not saying to NOT get travel insurance, but your credit card company probably has a lot of benefits you don't even know about! In fact, I found out like a month ago mine offers free reimbursement for TSA precheck and offers a lot of travel insurance because it's a business credit card. Like someone else said, it's all about being informed.
  12. I "lived the good life" on the free waterfront hehe!
  13. I really laughed out loud when I read that you just ate 3-5 cookies at a time...they were SO TINY! She had like SO many of these tiny little cookies...I was just overall sour about the lack of fish and only one snorkel stop, those tiny cookies put me over the edge. :') I agree, good group of people and staff was nice, just poor execution
