  1. I noticed today the Sun and the Gem are docked in Aruba. This might sound like a dumb question......But Why? Hurricane season? Cheaper to keep them there vs anchored around the Bahamas? Just curious....
  2. What is the norm for hats, etc on really hot cruises? Especially for sightseeing (not sunbathing) on top decks exposed to sun and wind, and for some excursions. Is it geeky to wear a 360 degree wide brim hat with underchin tiedown, and maybe long sleeve and pants like I do for tropical sailboating? I have been a more carefree person in the past, but have noticed folks in nursing homes with bad sun damage that blooms late in life. Or are decks gentrified now to limit exposure to wind, sun, or rain to the point where weather doesn't affect clothing choices? In long past cruises I have spent umpteen hours for example fjordwatching on rain lashed top decks or checking out Med. ports that my cabin is facing away from. Maybe a minimal solution is the narrowbrim crushable hat that sailplane pilots tend to wear, but with a foldaway chinstrap added. Cheers...
  3. Did they do away with the "Ultimate Drink Package all together? I plan to go on the Sun to the Bahamas 4 nights and I don't see any drink package offered at all! Do we just buy drinks ala carte now?
  4. Anyone know why the Sun's sailings through October 18, 2020 have been canceled? Or Maybe that info is incorrect. I was at the homepage on a major TA and was reading the list of cruise lines and their canceled dates and notice that under NCL
  5. Heyyyy My CC Peps! This is my 2ND review (so please bear with me 🙂) Link to 1st review on Carnival Vista https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2522467-another-carnival-vista-review-2182018/ (Copied Intro) So A little introduction, I'm Melvina (42) and my Hubby is Richard (45), we reside in the endless summer state of Florida, Fort Lauderdale to be exact. We have 4 children ( 11,19, 23,25) a glam daughter (5) and 1 year old grandson and a yorkie, Max (7). We have only cruised with Carnival and always from the Port of Miami, even though Port of Everglades is much closer, It has just always worked out for us this way. We almost cruised out of Tampa and I say almost because we missed our cruise .. yes MISSED :mad:. We booked Paradise a couple years ago out of Tampa because my DH had received a casino deal that we couldn't pass up and it was only on select sailings, Tampa is about a 4 hour drive from us, so we decided to drive there on our sailing date, needless to say halfway through our trip, I remembered we didn't have our passports, birth certificates or any documents needed to board the cruise and no one at home who could have faxed or copied the info for us, so we turned around, grabbed our documents and tried to make it to Tampa. We did call Carnival to tell them we were running late, but was told if we didn't get there by 4 we couldn't board. We got there about 4:15, ship was still there but no porters and we still hadn't parked our vehicle. So long story short we missed our cruise and was refunded a portion of our money a few weeks later.... I'm going to change the subject now, because it makes me wanna cry just thinking about it.
  6. Is there actually a grill by the pool on the Sun? I’ve watched some YouTube videos but I haven’t seen that. Also, do they show movies anywhere on the ship? Are there any extra fee deck areas that are available to pay to access? Thanks in advance!
  7. They don't mention the ships names but I assuming since these 3 do Alaska? https://www.sfgate.com/news/bayarea/article/Three-Cruise-Ships-Without-Passengers-Will-Dock-15258260.php
  8. I was trying to find a roll call for Norwegian Sun August 15, 2020 but instead found the Roll Call for this ship going to Alaska on August 13. I expect this is due to Covid-19 and all ships have been rerouted. I have to say I was quite surprised to see an Alaska voyage canceled for August. Can anyone tell me how to start a Roll Call, or who to contact to start one? SO....missing our cruise time and jumping back on board asap, even if it is a shorty. Thanks for any help
  9. We were booked through a big box TA for the NCL Sun cruise departing July 13th. This cruise was cancelled by NCL, and communications to guests directly booked with NCL stated that full refunds would be given if a form was submitted between 4/20-4/27. That form was never sent to big box customers. This morning I received a cancellation survey from the TA about this cruise, stating that they would follow the cruiseline's guidelines regarding refunds and FCC. I filled it out until the last page, where the fine print stated that this form would get me a FCC. I assumed when the email stated that the cruiseline's refund policy would be followed, that the TA would take my information and submit to NCL between 4/20-4/27. So glad I read the fine print. To compare....I had a Carnival cruise cancelled earlier this month. I was sent a survey from Carnival, and the big box TA, allowing me to request a refund or FCC. The only communication I've had from NCL said FCC, no mention of a refund. NCL is not playing nice with customers. If I didn't read CC I would have no idea that a full refund was an option. So, I won't be sailing with NCL again, or using the big box TA.
  10. This morning I notice that NCL decided to keep the "Sun" cruising out of the Florida, (instead of Alaska) for the summer. Of course that remains to be seen, due to the virus. On their website dates are shown from June on. I'm glad to see that NCL decided to keep a ship located there for the summer. As a resident of florida, I enjoy the short 5 day cruises. Just a short drive, no overnite stays, and boarding a smaller ship makes it easy on/off. What do others think of their decision.
  11. About us: DH & I are in our mid-fifties, and this was our 11th cruise, 9th on NCL, and 5th on the Sun! Needless to say, we like the ship! We like a mid-winter getaway to be able to wear flip-flops and see the sun, with our biggest goal being relaxation. I'm a teacher, and my district has a week-long break the week of President's Day in February, so that's when we usually sail. We used to go for 7-day cruises, but we've really found a 5-day to be the sweet spot for our winter escape - I still have some time to catch up on work, and I don't have to find a sub and take an extra pre- or post-day for travel. Because of my job, we like to be able to drive to our port - since we live outside Atlanta, that makes Port Canaveral a great choice - we've sailed from there 6 out of our 11 times. Booking: I wouldn't usually include this, but this one had some interesting developments. Originally our plan was a Cuba cruise, so I was watching the different cruise lines prices and itineraries for our Feb window. Then...the door closed on Cuba, and the prices dropped...a lot! We like the Sun and we like sailing out of PC, so when I saw a great price on sail-away rate, I booked it. The Sun was still all-inclusive for drinks, and we just earned platinum on our last cruise, so we didn't care about the Free at Sea perks. Even though the Sun went back to the normal Free at Sea beverage package, we were told that our all-inclusive drinks would automatically convert over. At that time, our DSC dropped from $20 to $15 a day, so let the savings begin! Normally, I never see a price drop for the week I sail, since it's a really popular break week in the northeast & more districts in GA are having a break then, too. But...the price did drop...a lot! So much so that it was cheaper to rebook and pay the Free at Sea gratuities on the drink package - not to mention move from the 4th deck to the 6th deck. And still the price dropped again! This time, I asked for OBC - I saw on this board that the usual offer is 25% of the price difference, and that's exactly what I got. Pre-Cruise: we stayed at the Radisson Resort at the Port on their Park & Stay package. They have a shuttle that will take you to the port and pick you up when you return. We watched the prices for this one a bit as it went up and down - we actually considered staying somewhere cheaper in Cocoa and parking at the port, but - FYI - the port charges you an extra day. The price dropped to a rate with which we were happy, and so we booked it. Worked out really well. The night before, we went over to the Cocoa Beach Pier - took a walk down the beach at sunset, and ate dinner at the Riki Tiki Tavern at the end of the pier - felt like the vacation had started before we were on the ship! Embarkation: We got to the port around 10:30. We went to the platinum line to check-in, which did save time as they were doing a more intensive passport check (due to the Corona virus), and the non-latitudes line got busy quickly. We also had a double-page version of the health form to complete. Shortly after we checked in, they called Priority Access first (looked to be about 10 - 15 people), then our one ambassador by name (impressive, I thought), then platinum/platinum plus - took about 5 minutes. The Ship: Like I said, we like the ship! It is older and smaller, but it has a certain charm. This was our 5th time on it, so it felt like home (and I knew where all the public restrooms were - very important when you have the drink package, haha). The dry-dock in 2018 really spruced it up, and the spaces look great - there were even some furniture updates from when I was last on in 2018, right after the refresh. My favorite areas remain the Great Outdoors Café and the Observation Lounge - I'm also a fan of the Windjammer Bar. The pool deck seems a little bigger in proportion to the size of the ship compared to some of the newer ships - pretty sure the pools aren't heated - it was a little cool that day, and I did not see many people in the pool - not even the hardy little kids you usually see in the water. For smokers, they moved the smoking area to the top deck section near Champs bar. This was actually a great move as the smoke mostly went up and away - they also kept Champs bar open more. We got to do the platinum behind-the-scene tour, and we saw the back stage of the theatre, the laundry, and the main galley. Very interesting! The Room: We booked an inside on the Oslo deck - deck 6a. This funky little deck can only be accessed by a set of stairs on deck 7 - no elevator access. It was actually well located - near the forward elevators. The hallway was very quiet. We've booked a wide variety of rooms on the Sun - aft balconies, forward balconies, sideways insides...this was a smaller inside, sleeps 3, with the third on a foldout loveseat. I think that would be awfully tight. The room had plenty of storage, a new flat screen TV, the love seat, and a stool for the desk area. My only complaint is that it was very tight between the end of the bed and the love seat. The bathroom is the infamous Sun bathroom - small, circular shower with a curtain. However, it had great hot water with awesome pressure. I like the Sun's bathroom - I like being able to put all my toiletries on the little shelves - DH said it "appeals to my meticulous nature." Hah! The Food & Drink: We ate in La Cucina, Le Bistro, the main dining room (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), and the Sports Bar. Wings in the Sports Bar were not as good as I remembered (they were fine - just not as good). I really wish the Sun had a true O'Sheehan's/Local. All our meals in the main dining room were fine - there were some new menu choices on there that were very tasty, and some yummy old standbys as well. We enjoyed being able to use our platinum benefits for the first time in the specialty restaurants. We were told ahead of time that it was good for an appetizer, entrée less than $35, and dessert. We also got to choose a bottle of wine from a special list for Le Bistro. Service was pretty good in La Cucina, but not as much in Le Bistro - it was not the server's fault - he was very personable and was hustling. It was very busy, and they sat three couples, including us, in his section at the same time. We had to sign for our meal in La Cucina, but not in Le Bistro - not sure why. We stopped going to the specialty restaurants when they became a la carte. If we were paying for our meal at La Cucina, it would've been $86 before tips...I don't even pay that much at our local fancy Italian restaurant! I miss the old $15 upcharge. Funny thought I had - I remember the move to a la carte pricing was supposedly because Andy Stewart's wife wanted to be able to go in and order Cagney's cheesecake without ordering a meal and paying the upcharge. I was wondering if anyone ever actually did that - just go into a specialty restaurant for appetizers or desserts? They had some new drinks on the drink menu - that was fun to try! The Ports - Key West & Cozumel: In Key West we were docked at Old Mole/Navy pier. This is where you have to take the special trolley to Mallory Square to get off the Navy base. They announced that people would have to line up for tickets, however, gold and up Latitudes, suite guests, and priority access passengers could just join the line when they were ready to leave. We did our own thing in Key West - a short walk to the Truman Little White House (very nice tour - interesting history), lunch at First Flight, a restaurant across the street (the former home of the Pan Am ticket office and the first international flight in 1927 from Key West to Cuba - cool), a walk to Kermit's for some frozen key lime pie on a stick, and a return to the ship - great afternoon. For Cozumel we booked an excursion through NCL (10% platinum discount was applied online when I booked) to do a Coral Reef Restoration & Snorkel. It was very interesting - we learned about coral, and then planted some mangrove seeds. Finally we went snorkeling and saw the artificial reefs and the platforms where the corals were being grown. It was nice to feel like you were giving back to a place, and the snorkeling was neat. The Entertainment: The Sun does not have the Broadway shows or Howl at the Moon like the bigger ships. However, the live music at the pool and in the bars were all really good. World Beat production show was very entertaining. The magician's show in the theatre was very good - we did not have a chance to see the comedian. We also didn't see the Rock You Tonight production show as we've seen it three times before - it's vert entertaining and worth seeing at least once! The Spa: I made the mistake of saying "Sure, I'd like to enter the spa raffle" on embarkation day...big mistake. I thought the spa attendant would just give me the card to fill out...nooo, I had to take a round-the-world tour of stations outlining all the amazing things they could do...meanwhile, DH is waiting patiently outside for me. Ha, don't let that happen to you! I did get one service - a hair cut & style - it was great. The stylist took his time and did a magnificent job. He's the only one for whom I filled out a Vacation Hero card this time - service was fine, but it was not as outstanding as I remember in the past. They did have some great massage & facial specials mid-week, and I wish I had known to wait for the specials, but I really needed a new 'do, so it was all good. Debarkation: Relatively painless - we did the self-walk-off. Customs was doing the new facial recognition thing, and that would've been great if it recognized DH! He just had to go an agent - cursory glance at his passport, and we were on our way! So those the highlights! If anyone has any questions, I'll check back and answer if I can - I didn't save the dailies, and I forgot my camera so I didn't get a lot of pictures. I don't play bingo or Deal or No Deal, so I can't really help with that. All in all it was a wonderful, relaxing 5 days, and I had a great time!
  12. We recently sailed on the Breakaway and stayed in an inside cabin. DH and I had been worried by how small the room was going to be because we are long time Disney cruisers and their inside rooms are pretty large (185 SF). We watched videos and looked at pictures on the internet so we were prepared for minimal storage and I packed accordingly (packing cubes, extra bags to hold things since there were no drawers). When we got to the room, yes it was small but were pleasantly surprised how there was plenty of storage and we found we spent much less time in our room than we did on our Disney cruises because there was so much to do. Our next cruise will be on the Sun (God willing) and this time we chose an ocean view. We are trying to convince friends to come with us (also long time Disney cruisers), but money is tight for them and an ocean view is outside of their comfort zone. I am trying to convince them to try an inside room, but they saw how small our room was on the Breakaway when we showed them our pictures. By the pictures I have seen the inside rooms on the Sun, her rooms appear to be larger with better storage. While my GF is convinced, her DH is not and keeps saying they are too small, there is no room and he doesn't want to go because of it. Has anyone stayed in an inside on both the Breakaway and the Sun (or their sister ships)? Can you help me with your opinions on how they compare? Any pictures of the rooms on the Sun would be helpful. The ones here on CC ship information show a family or accessible - not a standard inside. Thank you in advance for your help.
  13. My reservation is still showing, but Alaska cruises this year on the sun are no longer available to book. No idea if this is a temporary glitch or if cancellations are coming.
  14. So like many others I'm sequestered at home, as I try to pass the time, I do look at various bookings for future cruises. Myself, I cannot imagine booking anything until the fall of this year, but who knows. Question - for those familiar with the NCL Sun (or same class ship), I'm not clear on the perqs you get with a suite? Specifically I'd be looking at an Aft penthouse room. There is no "Haven" per se, on the Sun, but I do believe if you are in a penthouse then there are perqs such as a butler and concierge? Can anyone comment more on what that actually entails? There is no Haven, so is the butler just to deliver room service? If so, what's the point? Does the concierge operate similar to the Haven concierge in that they can book you dinner or show reservations? Essentially what is the benefit of a penthouse stateroom beyond the size of the room and what it includes - i.e. what is in addition to the room itself? I tried doing a search, but I find this site very challenging to find relevant posts without weeding through ad nauseam irrelevant ones.
  15. What can you tell me about this ship. Opinions? Are the mini suites worth the extra money? Thanks
  16. I'm new to NCL. And an old timer to Oceania. We were booked with a family reunion on Bliss to Alaska in May. Discovered tonight that some of the older folks want to cancel, so we'll cancel on 3/10. Have done Alaska cruises several times and it's always a joy. After seeing the movie "The Call of the Wild" for the third time last night we've decided to do Alaska one more time by ourselves, no more big groups. Looked tonight at what we could do with our FCC and see an itinerary on Sun that interests us. Oceania is more luxurious than NCL for sure, and we do love our Oceania. But we're pretty laid back. All we are interested in in Alaska s a good meal, a quiet place to read, the beautiful scenery, nice people, clean ship, good service. Not party people, not into the casino or even shows. We're pretty boring. Smaller is better to me and I wasn't thrilled with the idea of 4000+ people anyway on Bliss. This cruise is 2021 and Sun was last refurbished 2018- four years seems to me to be about the limit a ship can go without needing some help. Appearance and cleanliness will bother me if it isn't decent. What do you think? If I'm looking for a small tidy NCL ship what would you recommend? Is Sun OK?
  17. I have been back for a little over a week and am now sitting down at the kitchen table to do my usual review with the piles of snow outside the widows. As usual, it will be long and in parts so some of you might want to skip my tomb of a recount. By way of background I foolishly waited about twenty-five plus years before I took my first cruise in March of 2017. Up until I travelled it was mostly to all inclusive land resorts when I was looking for sun in the south. After my first trip on the Norwegian Breakaway out of Manhatan, I was hooked. This most recent cruise was my fifth and I have another one coming up in early March. I have had a very good time on all of them and the Sun was no exception. THE PLAN This was a guy's trip; a short getaway. On a gloomy November day last year (we got dumped on with snow early this season) I texted my buddies who I do a yearly trip with to see if they were equally in need of a trip to look forward to and they were in. I live north of Barrie, Ontario and work in Toronto. Mike lives in Calgary and Steve is in the little town of Kensington, Prince Edward Island. We are all in our early fifties and are very seasoned world travellers. Within a few hours we had agreed on a four or five day window and I went to work looking into what was available within the window of time we had. I had been on Norwegian, Carnival and MSC and Mike had been on Norwegian in Europe the previous summer. We wanted something out of Florida because it is central for the guys coming in from Eastern Western Canada and because there are lots and lots of flights at pretty decent prices. Our last trip was in June the previous year where we went fishing in Northern Quebec. Our plan was simply to get away for a few days to eat, drink, read and relax. The Norwegian Sun's five day itinerary to Costa Maya and Cozumel hit the mark. I had been to both of those ports in January of 2019 on the Getaway. On our last cruise we had wanted to go to Maya Chan and Mr. Sanchos in those ports but they were booked. This time they were open and we booked them for our port days. More on them in detail in a subsequent post. We really did not care about the cabin. I had only ever sailed with the Family on Norwegian in the Haven and I knew the Sun did not have such a suite, and the guys just told me they were fine with an inside cabin. At the time I booked they had some type of sale and it turned out that a balcony cabin with three free at sea was only couple hundred dollars more than an inside cabin. It was crazy how little the price difference was for a balcony, 100 internet minutes and the dining package for two. Considering the guys had to fly to Toronto, I sprung for the difference and got us into a balcony cabin. I noticed that there was a forward facing cabin still remaining on deck 11, which is the lido deck with the pools, buffet, spa and gym. Our Room appeared to have a larger balcony. It was cabin 1002 and was right next to the port side owner's suite. I frankly could not figure out why this one was still available. The Bridge was below us and there was the bar above us. I figured it must have been the bar/noise potential. I wanted to try a forward facing balcony as I have had aft balconies before and loved them. I thought that it would be very windy up front once we were going 20 knots or so, so that also was something that I thought would be a down side. In any event, we are three very easy going guys that are very much use to camping and the outdoors so we are low maintenance as long as A. the place is clean. B. People are friendly and sensible and C. The ice cube machine works!!! The cruise was cheap in our opinion. It was something shy of $700 Canadian Each. We really did not want to take an extra day off so we planned to catch the first flight our of Pearson the morning of and if it was delayed, it was delayed and worse case we would find something to do in Orlando for a few days. None of us have every bought trip insurance in 30 years of travelling (we acknowledge we are due to get burned). It is what it is but cost of an extra day prior to departure in time and cost was something we were willing to roll the dice on. Mike was going to take a red eye our of Calgary on Feb 6th and then catch a 7:30 am flight our of Pearson to OCM. Steve flew into Toronto with his wife a few days early to go to Raptor's game and a show so the two of us were going to get to Pearson for a 6am flight to Orlando. Good plan until three days before I checked not he flight and it had been cancelled and we were now not leaving until 9:45 am which would put us into Orlando at 12:30 or so and that was cutting it close, so we decided to do what Mike was doing and take a red eye out Thursday, February 6th and then grab a hotel for a few hours sleep. We rebooked which was no easy task because around this time the Canadian Ministry started making entry restrictions and flights are getting cancelled in the far east and all hell is breaking loose and the wait time for Air Canada was two hours if you could even get in the cue. TIP.... when you call in and ask you to select one of the items depending on if you have an existing or new booking or something else.... ALWAYS say you want to spend money and go to new booking... they won't put you in the long line. Try it next time. I waited for 1.5 hours before giving up then I called back and it was to be a similar wait and then it hit me... tell them I want to spend money and they will put me in short line. What business turns away money? None. Boom... I was talking to an operator in three minutes and he had no idea what button I selected previously... It would appear they all go in the same line. Try it. So next I need a hotel for a few hours of sleep. The Hyatt at the airport was five hundred USD large so that was a no go. I wanted something close to the airport with a shuttle, breakfast would be good a nice option and ideally close to a pharmacy for last minute items. I was in a hurry and did not have a lot of time to research. I ended up booking the Econo Lodge on McCoy which was was advertised as sixty bucks and change and I regretted it as soon as I had a chance to look at it later in the day. It was an "oh well" if we can sleep in the woods while hunting, how bad could it really be? More on that later. LEAVING TORONTO So while we are having a beer waiting for our flight at Pearson, I start breaking the news to Steve and for comedy relief, letting Mike in on the joke while he was also waiting out in Calgary... the Trip Advisor reviews were brutal. We were laughing as we real each subsequent horror story and each added another half dozen exclamation points to each sentence. Oh Well. While at Pearson we discovered something we did not know... once in a bar in departures, you can ask them to put your beer in a plastic cub and you can take it with you and walk around. I had no idea... we walked onto our plain with a beer in hand.... seemed like a good idea at the time but not so much once we were delayed an hour and a half on the tarmac while we waited to be deiced. I had to make a made dash to the bathroom with the seat belt sign on. They were turning people back and I was going to burst so grabbed the air sickness bag as a prop and it worked like a charm... puff your cheeks out and hold the bag in a death grip and everyone will get our of your way and no crew is going to want to stop you!!! (two new things I learned). So the flight was full and quick (Pilot made up time) but he warned us it would be bumpy and it was... the seat belt sign never went off... no snacks or anything the whole way as it was BUMPY. ARRIVING IN ORLANDO We arrived in Orlando around 2:30am. We had no checked bags so we went right to arrivals to see where the taxi stand was. It was hard to find as it seemed like there are several levels that have pick up. It mattered not cuz there are no taxi's and I had forgot to download Uber and Lyft before I left. So there we were with 5% power on my phone and I had to download the app so we fund a plug... fast charge to get some more juice while I download Uber. Boom... order... app says seven minutes... boom there he is.. Awesome. It is only about a ten minute ride... the Econolodge is attached to a Clarion but it is AROUND BACK. This appears prominently in the chorus of negative (BAD BAD BAD) reviews. It was like we were going to be going down a dark alley as we anticipated how bad this place was going to be.... alas I will have to pick it up a little later as I have to drop my son off at the Ski Hill for the day. More shortly... Mark
  18. Hello all—sailing on the sun this upcoming Saturday and was curious about the liquor selection at the shops—do they offer any hard to find bourbons (blantons gold, weller, etc), or just typical liquor store selections? thanks!
  19. I have a chance to bid on an upgrade to a mini suite. Are there any bad mini suites on the Sun?
  20. I've been researching a future cruise on the NCL Sun on several different travel websites (not supposed to name them here!!), as well as the NCL website, and all of a sudden, tonight, all the NCL Sun cruises for January 2021 and March 2021 cruises have been removed - with only one 3-day cruise in February 2021 appearing. Did something happen?? I couldn't find any drydock info... The ship was just refurbished in 2018. Anyone help solve this mystery?!!
  21. Anyone hear of the Sun cancelling cruises from Feb - Apr 1? We got emails.
  22. Has anyone stayed in one of the unobstructed picture window oceanviews on Deck 5 or Deck 6 (Oslo) in a room that sleeps 3? Not the wheelchair accessible ones... I haven't been able to locate on cruisedeckplans or google the answer to whether there is a Pullman or a convertible sofa bed in these rooms. If it is a Pullman, is it positioned overtop of the other two beds, or over the sofa? The pictures on the NCL website look as if it is a Pullman over a sofa, but I'm a little leary of trusting that after reading a review where a person did not have that set-up when they specifically asked the NCL agent about it. Thanks in advance!
  23. Looking at 7 day round trip out of Seattle due to convince. First time visiting Alaska, family cruise, ages 23-77, in-laws are not the most mobile (difficulty walking long distances). Is a balcony stateroom a must have for Alaska or would an ocean view be sufficient? We have never cruised on a larger ship, just the smaller ones (Pride of America, The Dawn and The Jade). The mega ships seems awesome for families with younger children, but our children are in their 20’s. It would be nice to cruise a newer ship, but would we get more out of the smaller ship going into Alaska where the pool and slide won’t be such a draw for our party due to the cooler weather. Reviews of these two ships are all over the place as most reviews are! Just thought I’d ask all of you experienced cruisers what your thoughts and experiences were like on these two ships, especially from anyone who has cruised on them (or their sister ships) to Alaska. Thank you!
  24. Can anyone tell me how many floors the glass elevators in these atriums can access?
  25. Hi there, I have checked Google, Cruisedeckplans, Youtube, etc, but have yet to find a recent photo (post refurb) of an oceanview stateroom on this deck. I mostly want to know if there is a couch that converts to a bed or a pullman in these rooms that sleep three (looking at booking room 6224). I don't like the idea of the pullman over the bed in the large porthole type rooms.
