  1. The article doesn't explain why Cook only discovered the cabins were not connecting once on board. I'm at a loss to understand why this is. NCL could bare some blame. The booking agent probably shares some also but Cook should have known what cabins she booked well in advance of sailing. Without knowing all the facts it seems generous of NCL to offer the future credit. Trying to stiff the line for 3K seems a bit much. If I supplied services to someone and they pulled this on me, I would no longer do business with them. Of course there may be more to it than provided by Elliott Advocacy though I doubt any negligence by the cruise line was left out.
  2. We rank the value of free at sea offers as: 1) Drink package 2) Dining package 3) Wifi package 4) Shore excursion package If we are sailing with more than two as we often do, Third/Fourth free is our first choice then ranked as above. If you don't mind spending the additional $200 for deck 8 i suggest doing so. It is a very convenient location and just a flight of stairs above the exterior promenade which circles the back two thirds of the ship. For less than $10 per person/per day it seems a small up charge for a nice upgrade.
  3. The hot dog cart made an appearance at the end of the tunnel leading to Spice H2O during the NFL conference championship games in January. The games were shown on the big screen. We never saw the cart again. My guess is the cart is still on the Breakaway but seldom put into service.
  4. I have read several accounts of cruise ship crew providing the contents of the cabin safe to the port agent in the event of passengers missing the ship. If you or I miss the ship I would not rely on this happening. If I found myself in that situation and the port agent had my passport and valuables I would be very pleasantly surprised. The most obvious response is to 1) not miss the ship 2) have what you need with you when off the ship.
  5. If you like Rock-n-Roll visit Syd Normans Pour House. Small venue that fills fast. We loved the show. We were glad we went on the first full day of the cruise. We went again a few days later and it was packed.
  6. From what I have read the number of ships will be reduced for now while a solution (probably a new terminal on the mainland) is worked out. I hope your November cruise will not be affected. It's a shame but I'm surprised this didn't happen years ago. It looks like Dubrovnik is considering limiting the size and quantity of cruise ships also.
  7. Dancers from Burn The Floor performed in the Manhattan Room during our Breakaway cruise in January. We were lucky enough to be seated at a table on Cagney's that overlooked the Manhattan Room dance floor. We really enjoyed the show. Since the Manhattan Room is open for dinner from 5:30 to 9:00 and the dancers were there for about 30 minutes it doesn't surprise me than many guests didn't get to see the show. My suggestion is to inquire with the maître d' on embarkation day and ask if/when the dancers may perform and make a reservation for the show if possible.
  8. From what I have experienced with NCL latitudes, if the change happens during the cruise it makes no difference. My assumption, though I could be wrong is that status should be visible on the child's MyNCL account before boarding.
  9. The Ven diagram of people who want to know about debarking in Dublin is going to be small. The likely hood any on this forum much smaller. I know of no of no legal restrictions that would preclude or expense this option. Call NCL
  10. I really don't get this. You have choices. You do not have to book the beverage package with its service charge. Book what works for you.
  11. Last January ferry tickets were available for purchase at the excursion desk onboard. The number of tickets appear to be limited according to what we were told. Tickets were also available on Harvest Caye. Whether tickets are truly limited or not I can't say as we haven't taken the ferry but if you are sure this is what you want to do its is probably a good idea to visit the excursion desk once onboard and inquire.
  12. 11132 is located under the seating area at the back of the Cafe. I haven't stayed this far back but we did sail in 11120 on Pearl and noise was never an issue. Since 11120 is closer to the busier part of the buffet I think 11132 should be quite also. We liked 11120 because it was close to the stairs/elevator. What I would like less about 11132 is the extra walking being so far aft. If the extra steps are not a concern I think you will really enjoy the cabin. The mini-suites on the Jewel class ships really are a step above the standard balcony cabins for the reasons mentioned earlier in this thread.
  13. You can put credit card numbers into the reservation on MyNCL but the card still needs to be swiped at check-in.
