  1. MSNBC and advice is an oxymoron. I think you meant to say CNBC, which is a financial channel. MSNBC is pundits peddling nonsense.
  2. Just found out Carnival actually has a smoke free implementation now. This is huge. Hopefully other ships follow suit. No use in pandering to the extreme minority here by allowing smoking when the overwhelming large marjority does not smoke.
  3. Just got back off of our last Norwegian ship and likely headed back to Celebrity. Does Celebrity have any smoke free ships yet? The Casino on the last ship was unbearable. As were the 2 restaurants close to it. The cigarette smoke was just everywhere.
  4. And another. I expect many more will be flooding in as well. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=658614
  5. Another review was recently posted about the same ship and same sail date. It was also accurate and echos our sentiments. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=658701
  6. You likely enjoyed the buffet. The food in the buffet was Carnival quality for sure. (definitely a huge dip from previous NCL, RCL and definitely Celebrity) We are not big buffet fans personally but we did venture in their a few times. This buffet brought out the worst in people. Once you see people just digging in and eating food WHILE STANDING AT THE BUFFET it tends to turn us off. The specialty restaurants were all fantastic as I said earlier.
  7. NCL will not refund you for tours booked outside of the cruise line.
  8. Correct. Very rough on that bit of it. On these large boats its fairly easy to handle but we definitely had some rocking and rolling a couple days.
  9. What an absolute mess of an entire trip. Norwegian really really dropped the ball on this one. This was our 2nd time on that boat and the second trip was nothing like the 1st. The boat was right off of dry dock, all new staff, no one knew what they were doing, never even met our room steward. No customer service to call, lines were hours long to get anything answered. Syd Norman nice addition with syd Norman band very entertaining. Burn the floor and million dollar quartet nice entertainment Dueling piano entertaining at first but played same songs over again No smoking in casino should be implemented. Smoke permeates bistro, makes whole 6th floor unusable Food in buffet was commonly cold, chicken over cooked. Indian food was not as wonderful as it was on the bliss. Specialty restaurants were exceptional - Brazilian, steak, Italian, raw bar. Missed 2 ports, one due to leaving 4hrs late and the other from what we hear was due to Norwegian passing it off as weather but it wasn't. The tendering was an absolute nightmare. Took hours to get off. Some ports you'd literally have 2hrs before having to come back and stand in another line for 90 mins to get a tender. HOT MESS. We are likely done with NCL after this one. First trip on Getaway in the Baltics was great, Bliss thru the Canal was wonderful, this was all unacceptable and they offered no refund for missed ports nor compensation for missed tours not refunded on the missed ports. Bad.
  10. Just heard this is a thing. Sounds crazy!! Apparently if you see a Pineapple sticker on a cabin door that means the people are swingers and interested in meeting others. Is this true?? We are taking a cruise with a bunch of elderly people in our family and want to be aware of this type of stuff. So we can stick stickers on their doors and help them make some new friends. just kidding.. Seriously though.....Pineapple stickers?
