We had Walter on the Jewel. The following year we were on the Pearl and Walter was there and took the time to visit with us. He really is special!

Delays do happen and are frustrating. But in my experience delays are the exception and not the rule. A few times I have been able to get to airport well ahead of time and book an earlier flight so...

Agree! Given a choice I would prefer the Pearl or any of the Jewel class ships.
Love the Pearl!

Some are simply clueless and really are not good parents. They do not take parenting seriously and probably don't take much responsibility for what most of us consider common sense. These are the...

We used to visit the Caribbean in the summer when our kids were in school. It can be great and prices are lower. BUT you will be keeping a close eye out for tropical storms and hurricanes. ...

Cruises can be different than expected. I recently had this happen and it didn't ruin my cruise. It's easy to avoid what does not please you. Sometimes you meet people that ordinarily you would...

That's the way I have seen it in the past. But if you want your soda in the can unopened just tip the waiter or bartender a buck and it's yours. I like to have a few cans of soda in my cabin and...

There is a larger bath with a tub which is nice for many. But the tub has some problems. I do not know if this applies to all NCL ships but does for the Gem glass. The tub is high and has sliding...

He may grumble now, but he won't be grumbling after your cruise!:)

Just noticed from your header that you will be on the Gem. You will love the Jewel class. Not too big and not too small. I would not hesitate to go with the two bedroom.

I would upgrade for that price. The aft penthouse suites are fantastic. But your son will be sleeping on the pull out sofa. You will all be in the same room so not too much privacy. You will also...

If you like the Dawn, I would either flip a coin or go for the best price. I'm lukewarm at best when it comes to the Dawn. But do keep in mind that the Dawn has many loyal followers who consider it...

It might not be the same on all ships, but most have a "mini morgue" in the medical center. The Spirit is older and does have a mini morgue. My thoughts are that someone was enjoying passing around...

I never ever get emails from NCL. Without the good folks at CC I would be even more clueless..................thanks!



Last cruise was in November 2017 and I believe the basic rate was $13.50...

It took me a minute to figure out AYCE and you gave me a good chuckle. Lots of passengers belong to the AYCE club.

Thanks!:)

After several cruises we encountered the "Bickersons" on our last cruise. Not terrible, but annoying. TV often blaring and the wife loudly commenting on anything or everything from the balcony to...

MSC has become one of the cruise lines I'm thinking about. NCL has made many changes and my last cruise just didn't push my buttons.

Will be following this thread and see what others have to say.

I've never seen any vending machines on a NCL ship. The price for soda at a bar isn't too bad and will be charged to your card. With a smile and a tip the bartender will give you the unopened can....

We love the Jewel class ships and the Pearl is our favorite. Even after the recent updates we were disappointed with the Dawn.
