OMG, how awful. I appreciate your posting the information.

RIP, Laurie, you were an amazing talent. Thank you for those great evenings on the Gem.

My prayers and condolences to her family...

We did a full transit earlier this year on the NCL Jewel, and called at a number of the ports on your itinerary. I have a very detailed review here, including what we did in each port:

See Post 28 above for your answer. Grande was a "formal" venue during Anthem's dynamic dining phase, and there were no formal nights throughout the rest of the ship. Once Royal ditched dynamic...

When are the tender tix given out? We have two sea days after leaving NJ, then a full day in Port Canaveral, then Coco Cay. Thanks for any info!

I can't speak yet from personal experience (ask me in about 9 months :D), but based on my research and the deck plans, some of the SS are larger than others, including the balconies. E.g., take a...

I agree there is usually too much light on cruise ships for really good stargazing. I'm sure this is a safety issue. But I wish ships would regularly schedule a stargazing "lights out" spot or...

Since GSC is NCL's private island, I suggest you also ask your questions over on the NCL board.

We have been to GSC once; we were traveling with family and rented a small cabana, which we enjoyed....

I wouldn't skip any of it. Imho, learning about how the Canal actually works -- and still works the same way more than 100 years after it was built! -- is pretty fascinating.

OP: those rude people put you in a tough situation. Either walk away, or have an altercation. I think your choice of the former was best.

I had a similar issue on a cruise a few years ago. I...

OP: what interests you? As noted above, you'll be in Cabo during the heart of the whale migration season. We were there in very early February this year, and had a fantastic morning with Whale...

An aft-facing cabin would be okay for the Canal, BUT you do not want to stay on your balcony, wherever it is, for the entire transit. You want to see the locks from all different perspectives...

Seriously, every time I've gone into my Cruise Planner since the same thing happened to me, I worry. It truly is absurd that RCI knows this "glitch" exists and hasn't fixed it.

A) One card is outside your cabin.
B) Nothing, but what will Joe do with it? Your cabin is empty, nothing to steal. And unless Joe is your identical twin brother, he won't be able to use the card...

There's a known "glitch" in RCI's web site that "removes" sales prices when you check your reservation on line; outrageous that they haven't fixed this. It sounds like this might be what happened to...

Unless something has changed recently, which I strongly doubt, you don't need your passport but you do need a government-issued photo ID.

Happy Thanksgiving.

And I'll add a Me Too on the problems reported above -- in particular, no drop down menus (which means no Search function), and no Back to Top button. I have these issues in...

If it's critical to you that the SF bed splits, I would call NCL and check. We've sailed twice in SFs on the Jewel class ships, and it's always been my understanding that the beds on those cabins...

"Always off" -- well, that's sure counter-intuitive! :D

Okay, I've reset mine to that. Let's see what happens... Posting...

Edited to add: that worked, thanks. I hope the mods revise the...

My Time Zone settings are and have been correct, but like the OP, the posts in the threads still show a time that is an hour later (that is, not corrected for the end of DST), and, like the OP, I...

Very happy to hear that. Some of us on our Roll Call are using them next summer for their South Coast Tour, and some for their Golden Circle Tour. I've been pleased with their email...

OP: HUGE thanks for taking the time and effort to take and post these photos, much appreciated!! (And thanks to gardenbell for the link and search instructions.)

Tried it a few times on two different ships. The meats were always dried out. We are done with Moderno. NCL can't pull off the concept. Save your money. Find a Fogo on land.

Our first dinner at La Cucina was seven years ago on the Jade. We thought it was awful, and skipped it on the bunch of NCL cruises we took between then and this past January/Feb on the Jewel. By...

I've seen all three shows. Really didn't care for Spectra, though I love Two70 and the amazing stuff they can do in that space. Be sure to wander in there periodically in the evenings to check out...

OP: Thanks for taking the time to post your comments. We'll be on Anthem in February, and I'm sure hoping your reports of long lines and waits, even when you had dinner reservations, was caused by...
