I would ALWAYS chose a one way over a round trip, especially out of Seattle. For the money you save on Jewel, you can add a few extra days on the end of the cruise and go to Denali.

Can you explain why you think the food is terrible. I enjoy the food on NCL, I find it much better than Carnival or RCCL.

After the date for final payment NCL will not give you an OBC. Prior to the date for final payment, if there are price drops NCL will adjust the price you pay.

At ports of call the gangway opens as soon as the ship is cleared, which could even be prior to scheduled docking time. There is no order for getting off, but it typically takes no more than 15...

NCL won't talk to you because technically the booking belongs to your TA, not to you.



Since you dealt with a TA, you probably need to look to them for answers and not NCL, but answering your...

Do you think that adult only pools and hot tubs have any less urine in them than family versions. If you do, you are being naive.

All luggage taken on the ship, whether you carry it or check it is scanned by x-ray. If something is suspicious some lines will open your luggage, others will hold it and make you come open it in...

You can lock it but don't but anything in your luggage that you cannot afford to lose. In other words checked luggage is for clothes and toiletries, not cameras, jewelry, documents, electronics, etc.

Please define nice.

To some people it may be the local Outback Steak House or local mom and pop restaurant. To others it might be the fanciest restaurant in New York.


Nice to the farmer who...

I have never seen what I would consider an upscale restaurant on any cruise ship and that includes the four luxury lines that I have sailed on. Granted I haven't been on Cunard, and that line may be...

To a large extent the amount of sunscreen required depends on your skin type. I can apply SPF 30 once in the morning and can go all day without reapplying or burning. My wife has to put it on two or...

There is no such thing as a standard. Tipping is a personal expense that is customary in the US. If you want to give a person in another country a tip then give them whatever makes you comfortable.

IMO this simply illustrates the myth that prices drop the closer you get to sailing. It seems to me that the best prices are at least 9 months out, any closer to sailing and prices tend to go up....

As long as you don't have any open cuts or sores you are fine using them, as has been said, just don't drink the water.

I have no idea where you came up with a statement like this, but I would suggest that probably 50% of married women who sail now have last names that match the name on their birth certificate. I...

Tipping is for the most part strictly a US custom. There is no need to tip, but if you insist then $5 per person for a full day tour is more than enough except in the US.

While you can do it, it is not as easy as the people who posted above want you to believe. On the way over you have to stop at Tortola to clear British customs. On the way back you have to go to St....

Generally Punta Langosta, but we have tendered into the International pier from the Dawn on occasion. It really depends on how many ships are in port.

You will have to look hard to find that type of attire on a western Caribbean cruise. It is not something that you should worry about. The only place I have seen thongs or topless women is at AI...

Dawn doesn't have any studios. I would not assume that prices are going to go down. They may offer a reduced single supplement, but that doesn't happen often. The best price right now for an inside...

You are almost correct, some churches do issue ecclesiastical marriage licenses, that are just as important as the secular version.

We have stayed in the Sheraton Anchorage three times and all three times there were NCL groups staying there. This is over a period of five or six years so the Sheraton might be a good option.

The only reason to make a reservation for one of the main dining rooms is if your party is larger than six people, any table size of six or less they seat pretty quickly even at the busy times.
