  1. https://www.princess.com/downloads/pdf/ships-and-experience/food-and-dining/beverages/Wine-Menu.pdf @Brisbane41 Is the above the wine menu to which you are referring?
  2. I cruised on Sept 20, 2019. I went to the gym about 0645 on the day of CocoCay visit. Link to video...
  3. @Essiesmom She asked specifically about Norwegian.
  4. It appears the only ship sailing out of SJ in those months is the Epic. According to the deck plans there are no rooms in the category OV on this ship at all. https://www.ncl.com/cruise-ship/epic/deck-plans Mini-Suite with Balcony Family Mini-Suite with Balcony Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony Sail Away Mini-Suite Mid-Ship Balcony Family Balcony Aft-Facing Balcony Large Balcony Balcony Sail Away Balcony Mid-Ship Inside Family Inside Inside Sail Away Inside Studio The Haven Aft Facing Penthouse with Balcony The Haven Spa Suite with Balcony Haven Deluxe Owner's Suite with Large Balcony Haven 2 Bedroom Family Villa with Balcony Haven Courtyard Penthouse with Balcony
  5. @benzygirl I purchased months before. You can use the OBC that is in your cruise planner towards the Beverage Package online. You likely won't find it cheaper than $57. I got LUCKY at $49. I haven't seen it under $52 since I bought it. It was in the $80s the week before sailing. If you purchase and it does go lower, you simply cancel and rebook. You don't lose the OBC you just reapply it.
  6. I love the sea, but am not a sailor. I also can't afford to charter a yacht and crew. Cruising allows me to be "at sea". There are lots of other reasons it's moved to the top of my list, but you asked for our "favorite".
  7. As for comfort food...I created this little gem that was great as a side to the breast meat from a rotisserie chicken. I cooked 1 bag of Success Boil-N-Bag Rice (makes about 1 cup), then when done I returned it to the warm pot with 1 tbsp butter (salt free always), 1/2c shredded cheddar cheese and 2 tbsp 2% milk. It's like Mac and Cheese only with rice LOL The next time I added some frozen corn - cooked first. You could add peas or broccoli. The whole recipe (minus corn) is about 650 calories. Could feed 2-3 adults. @RobinCruiser jennybvacations.wordpress.com
  8. Thanks Belle! I've already used my crockpot! I am down 1.4 and going to try very hard for the next 77 days! I have resolved that when I drink it will be red wine only. My cruise is in 79 days but I'm going to CA a day early. I am also starting my blog posts today!
  9. WIPE OUT BAR $ Bar SIP AND SHAKA Surfs up. Bottoms up. After hanging 10 on the FlowRider® surf simulator, hang out at Wipe Out Bar with a refreshing cocktail, or sip a cool tropical concoction while you soak up the sun. HOW TO PURCHASE Beverage Package or A La Carte AGE RESTRICTION 21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The Wipeout Cafe Located between the two FlowRiders, serves regular grill offerings — burgers, dogs and fries.
  10. It's my belief the rules are due to 1) insurance requirements/mitigate risks of children making childish decisions 2) the safety of minors and others 3) the enjoyment of other passengers. I personally don't care what stateroom folks choose to sleep in. However, if I am in a position where guests of any age are behaving in a manner that is hindering my enjoyment of the cruise, you can expect me to complain.
  11. I was just on the Nav. I have all of the dailies. I will scan and upload them in the next day or two. It lists all of the dining venue hours. Appears I already put them in my review... Here is a link post #34.
  12. I am going to go slightly down the rabbit hole. Regardless of the charity, please do some research. Validate it's 501c3 status by visiting IRS.gov. You should also go to their website. They should have their P&L, annual reports and leadership available. They should also have an outside auditor. If they are not on the website, they should be willing to simply send them to you. If they are unwilling to provide the data or are not independently audited, BEWARE! End of PSA.
  13. I have sailed solo on my last two cruises. If I get a chair on the Lido deck it's because I want to rotate between being in the water and sunbathing/reading. If I am in the water I need to be able to keep an eye on my things. I can't have them on the deck above. I also do not keep an eye on the time. Could be 10 minutes, could be an hour. I don't think I am doing anything wrong, rude or "hoggish". On the other hand, when I went with my friend we shared one chair by the pool for our things. He is not a lay out kinda guy and even when I was, he was still sitting/standing in the pool chatting. If I am alone and need to use the restroom, I will ask someone near to me or a crew member to please keep an eye on my things (towel, sunscreen, book, chair).
  14. The grandparents kindly paid for 3 balcony cabins. Why don't you book yourself with your daughter, have your wife add "Jane Smith" in your place on your room, then have sis and her friend get their own cabin where ever they want? Have "Jane Smith" be a no show. Now your daughter has a balcony cabin to herself next to Mom and Dad.
  15. @knutsonl Think of it like this. Your friends only got one benefit...$75 OBC. You got the choice between two 1) the discount on a balcony stateroom OR 2) $75 OBC.
