  1. Last I checked NCL was a for-profit corporation and, as such, can add or take away any amenities they want. Rather than gripe just vote with your dollars. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  2. As a matter of fact they do if my kids are in the room. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  3. Yea, and hershey bars used to be bigger too. Back in 1976. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  4. Yes. I just slapped a luggage tag on mine at it walked right on the ship and into the MDR. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  5. True, but if you were planning to go to teppanyaki anyway, the lobster is "free" Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  6. I was in the 2 br haven suite on the June 30 sailing and I asked about lobster on the first night. I was told there would be no tails on the first night but rather a "pasta and lobster" dish on the second night. It was either in MDR or buffet, can't remember. I was in moderno second night which by the way was fantastic. On the last night of the cruise we ate in teppanyaki and somebody at our table ordered the lobster and got two beautiful large tails, so that may be the way to go.
  7. Nice!! Enjoy! Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  8. Parking for the week: $245. Eight passenger stretch limo from Long Island: $225 incl tip and tolls. Not having to worry about my car for the week and having the porters fight over taking your luggage: priceless. We'll slum it on the way home. Vacations over and everyone's depressed anyway.

  9. Something else to consider. I just checked my travel accident policy for my upcoming bermuda trip, and motor bikes and scooters are excluded. Next time I'm going to check this before I buy policy. While I do think scooters are generally safe I'm not comfortable knowing injuries would not be covered. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  10. Wow, that's terrible, I am really sorry you were so badly injured. But, you drank beyond your known limits and got sick and injured, and somehow this is NCLs fault? I don't blame the insurance carrier for not covering alcohol related injuries. Can you imagine the claims they'd get?! Again sorry for your injuries but I ain't buying it. This is either a farce or the biggest case yet of failing to take personal responsibility for ones actions. And by the way I'm pretty sure it's an underwriter and not NCL providing the coverage so blaming them is misguided. Especially when there are dozens of travel policies available for purchase. Caveat emptor. ps I really doubt having one drink EVER voids the policy. If that were the case 95 percent of cruisers are uninsurable. Pss I'd take the credit, book another cruise, and don't drink.

  11. I have to agree with grobma. I would ditch this car service and find one that will pick you up around 9 or 9.30. As a long islander I know what a crap shoot traffic can be. I'd rather be early and wait then stress about it. All you need is one breakdown and there goes the belt or bqe. But you know this aleady I'm sure. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  12. Keep an open mind, go with the flow, consider your fellow cruisers and most importantly HAVE A BLAST!!! Oh, and know in advance cruising can be addictive. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  13. The idea is shared risk. Instead of one family getting financially ruined by a 34,000 medical bill, 100 of us cruisers get together and agree to spread out that cost by paying 340 each. Doesn't matter who the unlucky 1 person is who got sick, we all shared the much affordable cost. Of course you could roll the dice and say there's a tiny chance YOU will be the unlucky one, but is it worth it? Most don't think so. And yes of course the insurance company makes a profit doing this. They should they are providing a valuable service. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
  14. June is pleasant for sure, but this year many visitors have reported the water was too cold to swim. If you like hot hot beachy weather July is a safer bet, IMHO. Sent using the Cruise Critic forums app
