  1. So, you did not have to pay extra to choose your own seats. How do you choose the seats? Do you just pull up your confirmation number and then there is a place to pick your seats? Sorry for the stupid question but I've never gone in and chosen seats after a flight was booked.
  2. Those are good reminders for everyone. Wouldn't life be great if everyone just behaved themselves?
  3. I would love to see the dailies if you can post them. 🙂
  4. We enjoyed it. We had a great butler and concierge. The bar service and restaurant were wonderful. We loved coming back to our cabin to find out what type of snacks were received. We became very spoiled. It just felt so much more relaxing by the private pool instead of being surrounded at the main pool. We really only ventured out for the specialty restaurants and shows. We also met a few people that we really clicked with in the Haven and shared a few drinks and meals with them. We also loved having the priority boarding and disembarking. I love the Haven and think it's well worth the money.
  5. We absolutely love the Haven but we only book it if we are traveling just by ourselves. We have several friends that love to cruise with us but would never pay for the Haven. I'm not going to pay the extra only to have to spend a lot of time with our friends outside of the Haven. We also like the Haven when we don't really care about missing the ports. We've seen most of the Caribbean ports so we don't mind missing those to enjoy our time in the Haven. We truly enjoyed all the benefits such as the priority boarding, butler service, Haven restaurant and bar. When we travel by ourselves in the Haven, we usually meet a few people and end up sharing a few drinks and meals with them. We try to cruise twice a year. Once by ourselves ( just hubby and myself ) and once with our friends. So, we get the Haven once a year.
  6. I have been in that situation. Not in a family suite but similar. We cruise with friends and normally get 4 or 5 cabins very close together. That is so convenient when you like to travel in a pack, which we do. One year, my DH and I decided we wanted a suite which was on a different deck and on the opposite end of the ship. We were still able to call each others' cabins or text via the cruise line's app but it wasn't quite as convenient as being right beside them. We found ourselves a little out of the loop and had to catch up to them. So now we book suites when we go all by ourselves and book cabins beside our friends when we go with them. We just don't like to miss out on anything with the friends. That's just us though. You might have a totally different experience.
  7. Oh okay. I had no idea. I thought the room steward just brought us the wrong bag. It sure was nicer that the paper bag.
  8. In my experience, the complimentary bag they give you is a small paper bag that tears easily if you try to put to much into it. Last time we lucked out. We asked the cabin steward about the free laundry deal and he brought us the wrong bag. It was a nice big mesh bag. We were excited thinking it was a great deal. We didn't find out it was the wrong bag until after it was gone. They honored it though and we didn't pay anything. It was our first trip on Norwegian and I thought they were just nicer than the other cruise lines by offering nicer laundry service. We found out later that we should've gotten the small paper bag. oops. 🙂
  9. Just curious why you would say no hotels around the MIA airport? Is this area a higher crime area or just not very pretty? I'm trying to decide between port area and just getting a hotel near the airport.
  10. Thank you. We're from a tiny town in the Midwest. We don't have a lot of city experience. 🙂
  11. Thank you everyone. Maybe we'll have an early dinner. 🙂
  12. Hello Everyone, We are cruising out of Miami and I really want to stay close to the port. I've been reading that a lot of people like the Intercontinental Hotel. I've been told that Miami is a very rough city and I shouldn't be out walking. For those who have stayed at the Intercontinental, did you feel safe walking down the street to a nice restaurant? I also wanted to know, how good was the hotel's breakfast and what restaurants were very close by? Thanks,
  13. That's true. I can't wait to see all the pictures once they are done with the dry dock.
  14. We are booked but unfortunately, we have to wait clear til Jan 31, 2021. We're doing a 12 day Panama Canal. Can't wait.
  15. Thanks... No offense to anyone but that doesn't sound like a good snack for me. I'll stick with chocolate covered strawberries and cookies. 🙂
