The company name is usually on the excursion tickets. You might ask if anyone taking that excursion can look for you.

This is one reason to talk to the casino manager. Then, the cashiers can be told to give you change (small bills) after you cash out at the end of the slot pull.

NCL Distinctive Voyages
We were told that Norwegian’s domestic flight prices are generally non-competitive. The only time we book flights with Norwegian is on one-way international flights (like coming back from a...

That was my thought. At one point, it looked like Norwegian was in the program, but the program wasn’t available at their pier. So, go figure.

Make sure she doesn’t have a CC account or the surprise may be lost.

All the collected trash is. I believe the issue with straws is that they are prone to being dropped or left on a table and then fall (or blow) overboard.

I prefer the Jewel class, especially the Jade.

I don’t use any of the megaship bells and whistles (rock walls, water slides, I rarely go to the pool) so all they give me is more people to...

If you book the MDR or the specialities that are ala carte, you should be able to just make a reservation for six, and tell the others not to bother. If you book the flat rate restaurants (Moderno...

This is a non-drug solution, but the only time I felt queasy (16 cruises), I was in a towel folding presentation in an inner, enclosed room. My brother-in-law is a tugboat captain and what he says...

If you order it ahead of time, it will show up in your eDocs and amenities, so it can be difficult to keep it as a surprise. My wife had friends call, order it and pay for it - and it still showed up...
Bummed...I can't find a Cruise I want to book.
Classes are families of ships of the same basic design. The Breakaway class is the Breakaway and the Getaway. That class was followed by the Breakaway Plus class: the Escape, the Joy (China market)...

Are there special luggage tag porters? I thought all the pier workers were union.

Also, remember on the Internet packages, you can use multiple devices, just one at a time. My wife and I usually split an unlimited package.

Sodas are $2.50 to $3.00 from my (faded) memories, with the per drink gratuity. I got the soda package on one cruise and decided it wasn’t worth it for me. I usually just pay per soda and drink a lot...

You may run into the hold issue here. If you have $800 of credit on the card and the first day, a $400 hold is placed, it won’t cover an $800 final charge.

Once again, it is not Norwegian’s insurance policy. Norwegian doesn’t have anything to do with this.

Why hasn’t anyone blasted the military? They caused the problem.

There is no advice other than fight it out with the insurance company.

There is no reason to bash NCL - it’s not their issue.

Your idea of “right” is simply wrong. Blackmailing companies because you failed to do any basic level of research is bad for everyone.

An unsettling situation with NCL. Your thoughts and suggestions ?
This is a major problem in the US today. They didn’t read the contracts they signed, and then it becomes the company’s fault, and then all the cheerleaders start calling for boycotts and protests.

I think most insurance policies exclude military action (including training exercises and service). I’m not judging the practice, I just think it’s standard (it’s an exclusion in the NCL-sold...

Do you?

Some restaurants were collecting portions of tips from the staff (see various lawsuits.) Many places pool tips, to cover busboys and runners. There is a rumor that should come back in...
