  1. My kids are a few years away from this. I can see at organized activities might be poorly attended. But if they just did a few on the first sea day, it would probably help introduce the kids to each other. Something simple like an organized scavenger hunt or meet at the sports court for games. On the more enhanced ships, maybe offer a dedicated hour on the flow rider, ropes course, rock wall, etc on day 1.
  2. I have 2 competing issues. First, we'd like to do a longer cruise, not a cruisetour, in Alaska. That limits me to Princess and HAL (unless you have other recommendations). Second, the kids will be 10 and 13 and love all the activities on the RC mega ships. If you've done Princess with kids after the bells and whistles ships, how was it? My kids do not like the kids clubs and won't set foot in them. They just tend to go off and find the activities they want to participate in and have fun together. I'm worried that on a day 10 Alaska cruise, they will be stir crazy on the sea days. I'm looking at the Star Princess SFO R/T which has 5 days at sea. I see that there is a sports court and a pool with no slides. Beyond the kids club, what else is there to do on the ship for them?
  3. I would love it if OTF did a pop up like they did at the Boca Resort. How’s Hell Week going for you? I don’t think I can take another day of squats!
  4. Thank you for this. I didn’t realize that.
  5. I know actual itineraries have not been released yet but I think both the Bliss and Encore will be sailing Alaska. I’ve ruled out the Joy as there is no thermal spa. As I’m starting to plan, I want to know if the Haven is something I should consider. What appeals to me to the private deck space and private pool area. But I’m wondering how much that will be used on an Alaska cruise. Most likely we will sailing in mid June. If I don’t go with a haven suite, I would do a balcony cabin. I’m not really interested in any of the other amenities of a suite except the ability to find some peace and quiet. thanks for the input!
  6. I’m taking my 2 kids on the cruise. AQ doesn’t seem to be available for 3 people. I like the idea of joining them for dinner in Luminae. That might be a nice change.
  7. Thanks. We’re having dinner tomorrow night so I’ll let them know rooms are going quick.
  8. Thank you for this information. They have the bars in their bathrooms at home so I’ll assume they are necessary.
  9. The Royal Suite doesn’t show on the website as wheelchair accessible. I’m sure there is plenty of space in the room area for the wheelchair but what about the bathroom? Do you know if the the royal suite has a walk in shower?
  10. We are sailing on Reflection next Dec. It is a partial transit cruise. My best friends parents are going to join us. I need help on a cabin category for them. Dad is still very spry and mom is in a wheelchair. She won’t be getting off the ship. They enjoy luxury travel. They did a full canal crossing many years ago on a smaller ship. My friend wants to make sure her parents are comfortable on this trip. If you were booking a cabin for you wheelchair bound mom, what would you pick? A suite, concierge, aqua?
  11. I’m new to NCL. Do shows that require reservations also cost extra money?
  12. Organized chaos does not sound like fun. I’d be happy to pay for a step by step teaching activity, but $30 for frosting and candy doesn’t seem worth it. I would be disappointed in a 15 minute activity for that price as well. Maybe we’ll just do the sushi class. ok. Thanks. Based on 3monkeys4me’s comments I’m not sure the cupcake class is worth it. But the sushi sounds fabulous.
  13. I didn’t even know this existed at Costa Maya. I thought this was going to be a low key beach day. I was a bit bummed as it is our last stop on the cruise. This is right up my kids alley. They will love this. Thank you!
  14. Both kids want to do these classes on board. Kids are 9 and 12. Can I sign up and pay for 2 or do I need to sign up and pay for 3? My 9yr old is going to need help with both activities.
