  1. No PIN number. If you discover that you're missing a card, promptly report it, and get a replacement. The missing one will be deactivated. I imagine that if you find there are some unauthorized charges as a result, you can ask to have them removed...the security camera's could reveal the identity of who used them, although I doubt that NCL would go so far as to check...
  2. Thanks for all the tips. after a lot of research, I snagged a great deal on a Hurtigruten Antarctica cruise leaving on 28 February. I do have to fly for that one, but still got β€œan offer I couldn’t refuse”....πŸ˜‰. People typically book those a couple of years ahead, especially for a new ship (Roald Admundsen).
  3. Thanks! If we have free (and decent internet), I may do a "live from" thread...
  4. Thanks...but I think I will just 'take your word for that'....πŸ˜†
  5. Thanks for the geography lesson...perhaps I should change my profile, but in the near future, I will be moving to Wellington, and I'm pretty sure that is considered "South Florida"....πŸ™‚
  6. I am on the past guest list on about ten cruiselines. I thought I read somewhere on CC a couple of years ago, that some lines were looking for people who could sail at a moments notice to fill unsold cabins, at a deeply discounted rate...didn't necessarily have to be a resident, but that would help, as no need to book last minute air....
  7. If not "South Florida", how else would you describe it? I doubt many would know where Okeechobee (the town), is... https://www.google.com/maps/place/Okeechobee,+FL/@27.747042,-82.9112526,7.5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x88dc1f897baf5d23:0xaa8018663c28eac7!8m2!3d27.2439349!4d-80.8297828
  8. I am currently in Okeechobee....just a few miles west of town....😎
  9. Curious if anyone can post a "daily program" from a Roald Admundsen Antarctic cruise.... I understand that they are very lecture intensive, but am wondering if they also might include some trivia quiz's?
  10. If cruising with multi generations, the 'ship within a ship' model, such as Norwegian's Haven, and MSC's Yacht Club, offer the finer dining and service that is very nice, and also all the entertainment and activities that only a mega ship can offer. However, if just a couple are sailing, without the kids and grandkids, I think the experience on a mid-level line such as Oceania or Viking Ocean, or a luxury line such as Regent, Seabourn, Silversea, or Crystal is far superior to those...
  11. I recently moved from NYC to South Florida. I have heard that some cruise lines maintain a list of local residents that can take advantage of a last minute cruise with as little as a day's notice. If true, does anybody know which lines do that, and does anyone have experience doing it? We are within a two hour drive to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and Cape Canaveral, and four hours from Jacksonville, so we'd like to take advantage of that fact, if possible...😎
  12. Glad to hear things are going well...I just booked the 28 February expedition, at a "steal" fare, and am so excited! My first time to Antarctica, and on Hurtigruten, as well...
  13. I just booked the 28 February expedition on the Hurtigruten Roald Amundsen. While the itinerary is not exactly what I was looking for, by booking this close to sailing, I got a terrific deal, that was "an offer I couldn't refuse".... So excited to finally reach Antarctica!πŸ˜€
  14. Thanks for all that responded to my inquiry. I have ordered brochures from most of the lines going there, and will pour over them seriously when they arrive. It is easier to compare than doing it online... Speaking of ultimate cruises...anyone see this news item on CC today? https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5085/
  15. My favorite way to exercise on a cruise ship is to try to never use the elevators...even when going from deck 3 or 4 to the top. Not only good exercise, but a pleasure to never have to wait for one during periods of peak demand...
