  1. Thanks everyone for pointing out some things to consider. A lot of our OBC is from our agent, and would most likely be refundable (as it has been in the past). We are in the market for a new IPad as ours is over 7 years old, and can no longer update, but surprisingly still works. I will have to print out some infromation to bring with me and ensure the price is on point, and verify the model. Thanks again for the tips and suggestions.
  2. Thanks. I did read the thread over. I beleive we are exmpt from VAT as we depart from Lisbon, and stop at Gibralatr, which from my understanding from this post eliminates the VAT.
  3. Hi Everyone, We wil lbe sailing at the end of October on the Reflection . We have a significant amountof OBC and was wondeirng if iPad's are still offfered for purcahse on the ship?/ We may be in the market for a new IPad in the next little while and thought why not try to use some OBc to apply towards our purcahse. Can anyone comfirm if they are still available for purcahse. The Pros and cons of purchasing on the ship. I will be out of Lisbon to Barcelona, would I have to worry about VAT? Thanks in advance for any insight. I tried to do a search but found only dated posts. TIA
  4. I had this offer for 20% off drink poacakges under my Febraury 2020 cruise. When i called the rep said it as no applicable on the upgrades from classic to premium....after waiting on the phone for over an hour 😞
  5. Thanks. I have cruise a few times, but never really needed to delay the disembarkation, and never really paid much attention on timing of everything. Plus I know it will take 30-40 minutes driving from FLL to Miami depending on traffic. I wasn't certain of when last call was to disembark. So thanks for letting me know. We arrive at 7am.
  6. Hi Everyone, I tried doing a search but came up short, and thought this may be quicker. I am sailing Feb 2020 in he Infinity out of Miami. I am renting an Airbnb post cruise for one night. I am trying to locate the time slots for disembarkation to try and time our arrival to the Airbnb. We aren't able to drop our bags off until 11:00/11:30. I am trying to figure out how much extra time we will have from disembarkation to checking into our Airbnb in FLL. Then we will need to find a resolution to kill time between the two in the event there will be a long stretch between. Obviously we would be aiming to disembark as late as possible.
  7. I am also interested in knowing how this situation works....
  8. Hi Everyone, We will be sailing on the Getaway. (our second NCL cruise - first being on the Sky - we typically sail with Celebrity). I noticed they have a Mojito bar. I know mojitos are with rum, but rum does not agree with me. I usually replace it with vodka. Do any of you know if they carry vodka at this bar? I would love to try the list of different flavours if they would substitue it with vodka. Thanks in advance! Wendy
  9. I was trying to look up shore excurions by port (not through the planner as out cruise is still too far out), to try and get an idea of excurions prices/offers. However it keeps listing 1-8 excurions, 1-21 excurions, but doesn't show any of the excurions listed. Just a blank page. Is anyone else experiencing this problem on their site? I have tried using Explorer and Chrome from our desktop and safari on my cell phone.
  10. Thank you, I tried to look but for some reason couldn't find a straight answer amongst all the T&C's. I must not have looked hard enough. I greatly appreciate it.
  11. Hi Everyone, I have only done one NCL Cruise, and we are looking at another one as we really like the European itinerary. We have done a dozen cruises on other lines so i know typically the deposit is refundable prior to final payment in the event you need to cancel. I am lookig at the air and cruise combined. It states I only require a 100.00 deposit, but I wanted to ensure that all is fully refundable and no cancellation fees even with booking air. The cruise is in 2021, and i know the air wouldn't be booked. I just want to confirm that it is all fully refundable and cancellable prior to final payment just like booking cruise only. Thanks in advance!
  12. Can you recommend a few options for restaurants with a nice view? Thanks for the suggestion :)
  13. Thanks for the replies! This will be our first time in Barcelona. We are staying just off of Las Ramblas, so we thought the Gothic walking tour would help us with the immediate area. Our cruise is October 28 - Nov 5, staying in Barcelona from November 5 - 9. I think the weather will be pleasant (if not raining), for a walking tour. We are also going to look into the HOHO, to introduce ourselves to Barcelona. The accomodation has paid storage locker facility, which I am ok with knowing our luggage will be locked up safetly. We are currently booked with another tour company for 3:00 (I have read positives things about them as well), but I think Runner Bean at 11:00 would be a better option. Gets us familiar right away, and we have heard great things about the company. I just wanted reassurance that 11:00 is doable and not too rushed. :)
  14. I know I could also post this in Barcelona's forum, but thought hearing from passengers on Celebrity may make a difference on disembarkation times and process.
