  1. This is in the T&Cs: Can guests choose to carry promotional amenities or value adds from their cancelled reservation to their future booking? At time of cancellation, all promotional offers, amenities and value adds will be removed from the booking and will not carry-over to future reservations. Future reservations are subject to prevailing fares and offers in market at the time of booking.
  2.

  3. I have no experience with Nationwide. However, the company we use issued a certificate (with an expiration date) for a cruise in May that was cancelled by NCL. The trip shows as "pending," and we can change the coverage to apply toward future travel as we need it (up to the certificate cancellation date).
  4. You are correct about "some" of the old perks! However, October 1, 2019, I re-booked a Dec 2018 booking with a promotion that includes two separate $50 Shore Excursions Credits per port/per state room. Both show on our Invoice under "Add-ons" ...toward the bottom of the first page. The perks (looks exactly like this on the invoice) during this particular booking window were : Premium Beverage Package Internet Package (250 Minutes or 1000 MB) per stateroom Choice Shore Excursion Credit 5 Meal Specialty Dining Package Free $50 )n-Board Credit Certificate Non -Refundable Internet Package (60 Minutes) SHORE EXCURSION $50 PROMO All of these perks are listed on our "Amenities Invoice," as well! ... at that time, this was a somewhat revised version of "Distinctive Voyages" and was a short-lived Promo!
  5. There are actually at least two scenarios that exist for how the Shore Excursion Credits will work when booking online (or when calling the Shore Excursion #(866-625-1167). It completely depends upon which "Perks" code is on your reservation! Here are a couple of examples: HEXTRSX2 is an older promo (we booked in 2018). (This code is for two seperate $50 Shore Ex credits, per stateroom.) So, if booking shore excursions (online or calling), only applicable Latitudes discount will be applied. -OR- SHX50 (new in 2020) is a code for $50 off booking for the first person (only) per port. So, IF chosen excursion is $59, and two people in the room choose it (if neither has Latitude perk), the cost would be $9.00 for person 1 and $59 for person 2, totaling $68 paid up front total cost, billed upon booking (whenever/whichever method used). In either case, other codes might exist, but I don't know them!
  6. I've noticed that NCL has been loading a lot more excursions lately. I found Cabanas and Villas listed for a SKY cruise we've had booked in mid-November. Small Cabana $199, Large Cabana $299, Villas starting at $349 and go up to $599 for the 2-BR. But again, this is for the SKY, with (currently) no other ship scheduled there on that day. ...As always, "supply and demand" could make the pricing rise. I did book with our ShorEx Credit and Platinum Plus discount. However, I did have to pay at the time of the booking. (Which seems to be the case now, for anybody who books ahead!)
  7. I'm glad that you seem to have "weathered the storm" better than some. Also glad to know that you now have proper protective gear at work. I hope everything starts to get back to normal around you. Also, that you do, indeed, have a higher degree of immunity now. Stay Well! gg
  8. Hello MSUjohn! Today was the first time that I have come to this thread. Your posts caught my attention, mainly because I did not see anyone reply to you. So, I just wanted to say that there are people that do care. My hopes are that you are well! gg
  9. For future reference, here is CC's forum for the Dominican Republic! https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/280-dominican-republic/ And, for the Caribbean in general (by country) https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/456-caribbean/
  10. ast Update: May 20, 2020 FROM: https://www.ncl.com/suspended-sailings Expand All What costs are included in the future cruise credit (FCC)? The following will be applied to the FCC: Cruise fare and taxes Including any winning Upgrade Advantage payments. Flight arrangements booked through Norwegian Cruise Line. Hotel and CruiseTour packages purchased through Norwegian Cruise Line. Shore Excursions booked and pre-paid through Norwegian Cruise Line Prepaid service charges Beverage or Dining gratuities (if part of FAS Promotion selection) Essentials, Booksafe Standard or Platinum Travel Protection, if purchased. Booksafe Travel Protection will be issued as a separate additional FCC worth the value of the travel protection plan paid. This insurance FCC will be valid for one year from date of issuance and only applicable towards insurance for all published sailings through Dec 31, 2022?
  11. Perhaps this may be of help to you! https://dominicantoday.com/dr/tourism/2019/12/14/new-cruise-terminal-in-puerto-plata-will-be-operational-in-2020/
  12. Hello Big Al, Are the prices showing up in your "MY NCL - - Explore & Plan"? Or, are you looking at the "generic" EXPLORE - - Shore Excursions? Lagoon 1-Bedroom Villa at Silver Cove on the generic site currently shows $899! Depending on the time frame ("Spring Break ?"), ship (newer vs older), itinerary of your cruise, and how many ships will be at GSC that day, that price might escalate tremendously! If any were showing in our itinerary for purchase right now, I'd go ahead and purchase one. Sadly, nothing for GSC is showing for purchase yet for our itinerary!
