Ncl getaway november 25, 2018 g&l roll call

Recommended Posts

We are considering a beach day at Maya Chan........it looks to be a great place. But at the same time, if a large group from this site wants to do a beach day together, definitely not opposed.

 

dave

We love Maya Chan. The owners are great. Plenty of fresh cooked food and top shelf drinks.

We are not sure yet. We have two friends that booked, but may cancel. As soon as they decide, byid August, then we can finalize plans. We've done all these ports many times, so we may not do much. Costa Maya, we will probably take the trolley to the beach for a couple hours or do the water park. Cozumel we will probably bring our own snorkel gear and snorkel off the beach. Harvest Caye we will probably take a boat to the mainland since you have to pay for all food and drinks at the private island. Not sure, we might just stay on the Caye and walk around for a while then get back on the ship for free drinks. Haven't looked at Roatan yet.

I looked at all 107 shore excursions on the NCL website, but I didn't see one for the ferry to the mainland in Belize. Maybe NCL doesn't consider that a shore excursion. Anybody know about that?

Our friends do not eat beef so I tried to pick those restaurants that are not soooo much beef focused.

 

Our choices were La Cucina, Le Bistro, and Teppanyaki. Made the reservations at 8pm so that we could make sure and attend the LGBT meet ups and also plan on going to the dance parties at H2O afterward.

 

I have gotten some mixed message that some waiters/ships only allow one appetizer, one entree, and one dinner. Others state that one can have multiple apps and desserts. What is your experience?

hi Michael and Aaron from Myrtle.

 

We are doing a private taxi excursion in Honduras to the west end beach and possibly other scenic locations. We are 4, I can check to see if we can add two more.

 

In Cozumel, we are taking the ferry over to Playa and get a nice mexican lunch and cocktails. Walk down 5th ave and do some window shopping. Nothing special.

 

Costa Maya, still have finalized anything. Considering the Mayan Ruins but do i want to sit in a bus for two hours each way........

 

Harvest Caye - probably just explore around, relax at the beach/pool

Hi Dave, we might have talked about this before, but we did a really cool cenote swim in Playa del Carmen a few years ago. One of the best tours we've ever done. It's basically swimming through a cave with headlights on your head. Not sure if your group includes all swimmers though.

80 DAYS! And we got the upgrade offer from NCL. Now what to bid? Did anyone else receive the offer?
We have adjoining balcony cabins with our friends, so we are happy with our location and don't want an upgrade. Last month on a cruise on the NCL Sky, we offered the minimum for a balcony upgrade, but we didn't get it.

So believe it or not, the cruise is becoming a secondary thing right now.........getting to host a house guest this Thursday night. Her name is Florence! Today I bring in everything outdoors that could get picked up by the wind and become a projectile. Later today, I gather up all my important papers. Tuesday activities will be to protect those important items in the condo that I cant get in the car. Wednesday I am expecting that the authorities will issue evacuation directives. I live 1/2 block from the beach and I am 27' above sea level. Go away Florence!

The impacts are definitely going to be reduced here in MB thankfully since the storm came ashore 50 miles N. of us. As of noon getting increased rains, sustained winds at 35 and gusts in the low 60's. Still have power. The worse for MB is suppose to be after 6pm when the remnants of the eye are over us. Still expecting 10-15 inches of rain.

Be careful. Why didn't you evacuate?

Hey Everyone,

 

My partner and I will be on the Getaway. Last cruise we took was the transatlantic on the Epic 5 years ago.

 

We will be in Miami for a couple night ahead of time staying at the Winter Haven. We have several gay people in our group so it should be fun.

Are the spa packages worth it? We had one on our transatlantic cruise and loved the saunas and such. We also had two weeks with only 2 stops so had plenty of time on our hands.

good morning guys.......i have never purchased the spa package so am not a good one to ask. What I will say is that it all depends on how much time you will be off the ship at our 4 port stops in a row as well as other activities on board that you want to use such as the water slides, ropes course, the small pools, and how much you enjoy being in the sun. Since this is our first mega ship cruise, want to take advantage of those types of activities.

We've done Maya Chan several times. We love the place, but it's really quiet and low-key. You can take a taxi from the port right to the beach for a couple of dollars. There is also a large pool right in the port if you don't care for the sand. Some of the bars on the beach offer $25 drink all day passes, so there are other options.

There is a Meet and Greet at the Sail away Party. We are all meeting in Spice H20 at sail away, which should be around 4 pm if we leave on time. Please wear Mardi Gras beads or boas to identify yourselves to other cruisers. There are both gay and straight people meeting for the sail away party. 

 

Also remember the nightly LGBT meetings that NCL usually offers in one of their bars. See y'all there.
