    Upgrade bid successful

    I have a question if your bid is accepted lets say 48 hours prior to the cruise --Do you have to reprint your E docs?
  6. On our cruise on the Escape out of NY May 2018 there were no straws. The waiter told me that starting with our cruise they were getting rid of them. Needless to say, our friend that was coming with us got a text to bring some onboard.

    Essential Travel Protection thru NCL?

    I second call the trip insurance store --they are very knowledgeable and will guide you to the right plan for you. I always get their plan. Had an eye issue 2 years ago on the cruise. Between ship doc and having to rent a car when we got to Port Canaveral to see an eye Dr. It was $600 out of my pocket. When I got home filled out the forms with documentation and was 100% reimbursed. So you have to read the fine lines of the policy as well. I always make sure I get my trip insurance within 2 weeks of booking because then I can get the medical waiver for pre-existing conditions. The trip insurance store has a ton of info about policies on their website. I just paid $160 pp for my husband and myself for our may trip. $100,000 accident and sickness medical expense.Emergency evac is covered at 1 million- so if you fall and Fracture your hip -lets say in the Bahamas and need surgery I would rather get stabalized on the ship and have a medical plane come get me and take me to Florida for my surgery. Just my 2 cents Also Medjet assist has short term policies starting at $85 if someone you know has medical issues that may need an medical evac.

    Bliss Haven DOS vs 2 BR Courtyard Suite

    Thank you , for the info. I just watched another youtube and saw the difference in the size of the 2nd bedrooms. What deck were you on? I am leaning to bid after watching all the videos.

    Bliss Haven DOS vs 2 BR Courtyard Suite

    How was the wind on the H2 on the escape? My situation is this- 4 of going me, husband, son and close friend who is celebrating her 50th BD. son will sleep on the couch so no problem there--however he is a night owl and I'm sure he will be getting in very late or shall I say very early. At least in the H2 there is more room to move around him during the day if he sleeps late. We stayed in the H4 last year with just 3 of us so never needed to open up the couch for someone to sleep in. So I have no idea how much space there is to get to the balcony and walk around the couch/bed.These are the strange things I think about.lol So I do not know if I stay where I am or just bid on the H2. so looking for input. I did look at some videos on you tube to get an idea of the 2nd Br space. But will have to go back and see. I guess the H2 has drawers and the H4 does not in that 2nd Br. I guess behind the curtain in the H2 in the 2nd Br is storage?
