I always shop around when planning a cruise, trying to get the best value for ports, ship amenities, and total cost. A look at my signature will show I have so far floated pretty easily between NCL...

While the late night fun zone starts at 10:30PM, that just denotes the time the Splash Academy incurs and additional fee. From 7pm-10:30pm, the Splash Academy is open and complimentary. You can make...

Practically all of the wines available by the glass are under $15 for a 6oz pour. More particular wine drinkers have commented that this by-the-glass list leaves a lot to be desired, but even without...

Anybody ever make a successful Nationwide "Shipboard Service Disruption" claim for a canceled port due to not being able to tender (i.e. as is somewhat common with GSC)? I know it wouldn't count...

It depends on the policy, but for full coverage, most require you purchase the insurance on or before final payment date.

There are also smaller/less fancy clam shells on deck 18 (one deck above vibe) on the public sun deck.

Some insurance companies actually cover this with an "inconvenience payment", but it's actually much higher when the itinerary changes before sailing, not during the trip.

Last time I sailed NCL, they didn't allow reservations in the MDR on the Spirit, but I was able to get a table for two at Windows most nights by 6pm with no or a very short wait. The couple of times...

With a year or two out, yeah I wouldn't have minded too much (hell, I would even consider the same room on Escape to essentially be an upgrade with the added dining/drinking venues), but when I...

Holy cow, they actually did it, and within an hour! Well played, NCL, well played.

I haven't had any experience with the claims process, but I am insuring my upcoming trip with Nationwide, and after doing a comparison shop, they provided the most coverage for the least cost for my...

I called NCL, and there was a typo/glitch, and all Nov/Dec Breakaway sailing reservations were emailed, including Nov/Dec 2017. All sailings in 2017 are sailing as scheduled and are unaffected by the...

Thanks for the info! You are covered for drinks in Margaritaville with UBP though, right?[/quote]

That is correct. There is a small bar there where you can walk up/sit at if you just want drinks,...

The rule of thumb for NY sailings that time of year is to pack layers from early winter (but usually not deep winter) gear for embarkation/debarkation days, some more fall clothes for evenings and...

#2: The only limit is how much they want to spend on upcharge dining. Most of the upcharge venues are a la carte (only exceptions are Teppanyaki, Moderno, and the Dinner/Lunch shows in the Spiegel...

It may be different from sailing to sailing in regards to what times they make available online at the 90 day mark. For my particular sailing for Manhattan Room, they only had the hourly times...

You certainly don't need reservations for the MDRs (Manhattan/Taste/Savor), but NCL does offer reservations for those venues if you want that peace of mind knowing you have a space reserved (I know...

On the Breakaway, at least, at the 90-day mark the MDRs had reservations available every hour on the half hour (i.e. 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm, etc). The specialty dining had most times available,...

As far as I can tell, GSC was not in the path of any of the recent storms, and there was no publicly reported damage. There would be no reason it would be closed.

Obviously, there is always a...

It may have just been an off batch and/or improved in the past 8 years since I was last on NCL, but the escargot in both Le Bistro and the MDR on Spirit were a total disappointment (the snails had no...

Occasionally, TAs will offer additional bonuses/perks (like extra OBC, a bottle of wine, pay your gratuities for you). Some know the ships really well and can help with choosing a cabin.
