  1. I have had wonderful experiences. Went on the Harmony of the seas after new years and loved it! Everything was perfect. In addition, will be sailing on the Edge in March, for the second time and enjoyed that cruises also. After sailing about 48 times on multiple lines, my comments are based on my experiences. I truly believe I am not alone regarding my experience on NCL. I do respect your right to have your own opinions
  2. Thanks for your report. We also mostly sail on Celebrity, and tried the Haven on the Breakaway. Found all but the Haven area crowded and as busy as Disney World. The speciality restaurants were very disappointing IMO. We wouldn't sail again on NCL I would only recommend the Haven. We walked around the tiny pool deck and couldn't even find a place to sit- and walking through the mob wild- thought I would step on people as I tried to navigate the space . No real theatre or good spaces to sit and relax. If you want a ship IMO that is great for the young and old, with excellent entertainment, try the Oasis class RC ships- they knock the socks off of NCL. Even Carnival a better choice. However that is my opinion.
  3. Got off the Harmony , january 3rd sailing, had Jeremias and Elaine
  4. Agree If you book a half and somebody in the other half is sitting on the same couch, you can bump heads The only way to book is the whole. Works if you don’t mind people walking by staring at you as if you are a caged animal in a zoo
  5. What about purchasing something in the shops or a shore excursion? Specialty restaurants are also great!
  6. We are sailing Sunday. Didn’t get a call or email but checked our bid and it said canceled. We didn’t get an upgrade
  7. Both the Silhouette and reflection are our favorite s class ships. Love the lawn club grill Since you are three adults is the third bed couch comfortable for somebody 5’5” and 130 lbs?
  8. Having sailed 6 times on Carnival and probably 8 on Royal, no comparison. Carnival is very low end- more like NCL and Royal is so much better in all areas. Royal entertainment cannot be beat. Enjoy your cruise
  9. If you can swing it, do not get a guarantee inside cabin. You might have a horrible location with lots of noise if under or above a public space. Best to consider a good location. Probably not much more. I know you aren't fussy- but if you have a bad location it can ruin your vacation.
  10. We had Jeremias and checkers last year and they helped facilitate all of our requests. Jeremias has already contacted us for our cruise this Sunday on the Harmony and has helped facilitate my special requests. Always found them helpful and willing to help, if you need it. Busy, so circulating around the room isn't always possible. But when you need something, they help. My experience of course
  11. Just went to the Royal up website. My bid was cancelled- I haven't officially been notified by Royal yet. Cruise on Sunday.
  12. When we went to an all inclusive upscale resort in Cancun during New Years, they also charged a significant charge for a special dinner and a show on New Years eve. Didn't like it of course, but it also applies to cruise ships. Didn't pay additional on Celebrity for a NY eve cruise on the Edge- perhaps now only Royal- for now!
  13. Without a doubt so much better if you can swing a suite on the Silhouette or any other Celebrity ship- we were on the Equinox a few months ago, and unfortunately the suite deck wasn't completed so no water option and we didn't use it. However on the Edge, the suite deck was wonderful. It had a small pool, and hot tub, a bar/ restaurant that served light lunch and the suite lounge was just below. Heard that the Silhouette and Reflection will have a hot tub and hopefully shady seating areas. Perhaps a bar also
  14. The package isn’t always available they sell limited quantities We paid $179 pp for one week on the Harmony We can dine in all specialty restaurants for dinner and those available for lunch Doesn’t include any special parties or unique functions like a wine pairing IMO well worth it. Call to see if offered and available on your cruise and what the cost is enjoy
