  1. We also booked the Dream for Sept 14. So Hi from Austin Tx
  2. Here's to those of us that live life, take chances, and have fun. Having said that I won't put others at risk so if the virus trends up we will rethink our trip.
  3. Hi from Austin! We should arrange to meet somewhere on the ship when we get closer to sail date. Becky
  4. We booked out of Galveston for Sept 14 on the Dream. We are in our 60's and not worried other than could get cancelled but Carnival is starting back up Aug 1 so shall see then what is happening.
  5. Hi Everyone. I have been looking at Galveston cruises for Sept. for two days. What I saw was selling out quickly. I booked the last Spa balcony on the Dream for Sept 14th. Either we are all going stir crazy at home or they are limiting the number of passengers. I hope it's the latter.
  6. I have been able to book the thermal suite online but usually not able to until after you make your final payment. I do all of my bookings for shows, spa ect on my phone app. We only sail ship with thermal suites. We have never encountered loud drinkers but I guess it can happen. Our last cruise was on the Getaway(Baltic Aug 2019) and the thermal suite was beautiful and never really crowded. Hope this helps and have a wonderful time!
  7. Yes You can book and change your mind. No penalty. Best way is to call shore excursion desk and tell them which ones you want. Best part is you don't pay until you are on board.
  8. Just got off the Getaway with a new booking. Here's what we got. We bought two next cruise certificates totaling $500 with $250 to help pay down anything we spent on board. Since we are Latitude members(Bronze) the latitude promo for Aug was 20% off any cruise on the latitude list of 360 cruises and the current perks,which a cruise for 2021 was on there that we wanted to do. Now the best part. Since we were booking a spa balcony we got the spa balc at the sail away price(lowest Balcony price). Saved about $1000. Oh, and it's their newest ship, the Encore. I would definitely look at your options on board.
  9. We just got off the Getaway Aug 27th and wifi was good. We used NCLs computers with no problem, even at sea. Still had some mins. left after checking emails.
  10. I live in Texas and I make my calls to NCL after lunch during the week. I have never waited more than 10 mins. Everyone there has always been polite and very helpful. I due believe that the day and time are very much the problem with the wait time. Want to know what a real wait time is .......call the IRS. LOL
  11. Yes it is a thing. here is a news story. https://www.sun-sentinel.com/travel/fl-bz-cruise-ship-travel-hide-and-seek-ducks-20190531-qftdwpdbhrgqhf3am6t4lbwdp4-story.html
  12. cruisedeckplans.com has great photos and some videos by former guests. I saw an video tour of our actual cabin. It's a good way to look at all cruise ship cabins and more.
  13. Starbucks was added when the refurbishment was done this past May.
  14. OK, I decided to look at my edocs again(Just now) before I call the stressed, over worked NCL staff and my air itinerary is on my edocs finally(used the NCL app on my phone) So everyone, there is hope. Seems like they are starting to catch up. That update affected 100,00 bookings so patience was and is needed.
