  1. we were on a HAL ship in the Fjords off NEw Zealnd last week .Hit a water cyclone. we thought 21 ft waves were crazy, can't imagine what you experienced felt like
  2. We were on The Royal Ptincess for a British isles cruise the end of August I to Sept. not only did we not hear any music in hall atnanympointnof the day, we also did not hear the announcements in our rooms as stated above, we had to list at the door. so o thi , you are going to be fine.
  3. I has anyone extended their stay using the airfare perk? spoke with TA and was told we could still use the airfare if we booked the hotel through NCL. But is appears that the hotel price is 2x the advertised price on the hotel website.
  4. I asked our TA if they would offer something if we did not take the airfare on our Dec. 2019 European cruise and she said their response was no.
  5. I would double check on that status match. We had a problem with our status after our first cruise. Once we spoke to customer relations it was fixed . They can be very cut and dry at times , but push your concern.
  6. I was wondering how long it would take to change the matching. As a Black card holder, I have seen the reduction of some perks . I guess the match program brought in many people who were given the benefits
  7. They are trying to break into the U. S. Market and are in Miami . The ships are beautiful and pricing for similar itineraries is much lower,
  8. I am a loyal NCL customer and stockholder. with that said we have sailed 3 times on MSC in the past 12 months. Love the ships and the food. I would say that the shows on NCL are by far better. Can't beat the price on MSC, which was our orginal feel about NCL until they began offering all the "free at sea offers" and raised the prices. MSC is trying to make a mark in the U. S. Market so enjoy the low prices and perks while they last. We will be back on NCL in December so we haven't totally " jumped ship" . WE sail for the itinerary.
  9. Butcher Cut was empty when we were on th Seaside in October as well.
  10. Doublebzz i don't think we xan get the benefit Twice. But hey , we can give it a shot and purchase OBC and see if it works.
  11. Our TA could not added this to our HAL cruise since it was paid In full , but did on our new booking on Princess for 2020.
  12. Contacted our TA . SHe was able to get us - dinner in a specialty resturant and $100 beverage cards each. we had already made final payment earlier this month, so this was a very nice surprise as most lines will not add benefits after final payment. she said it was because the price went down that they were willing to make the offer to both us and the other 3 cabins booked with us.
  13. We have sailed on her twice . Once in April and the second was the beginning of October. Both times we had a great time. The food is fine. Lobster is not on the menu. steak is. They have an Italian night and two Gala nights with a special menu. The smoking area is the only place we smelled smoke. Our group ranged in age 62-78. we all had a great time .
  14. We missed our embarkment in LeHarve France this past August .We were able to embark the next day inSouth Hampton England. We had a Family death and informed Princess of our situation . They were very accommodating. They actually held the ship for 45 minutes due to a problem with a flight and traffic. WE were in contact with them every step of the way.
  15. We were just there in October . The recovery is slow but they have worked on the immediate Port area. As we drove to the beach , you can still see how much work needs to be done. IT is slow and steady progress.
