  1. It all depends on the port, is it a TENDER PORT?? Meaning you'll have to take a boat to the dock as the ship will anchor off shore. In that case I would say no way. Otherwise if you do actually dock at 8 I think 8:30 would be doable.
  2. Just off the JEWEL in June in a porthole cabin. Each bed lamp has a USB port in it. There are also one US plug and one Euro plug on the desk. Under the television is another small "desk" area and there is another US plug there. My friend and I managed to charge our camera batteries and cell phones with no problem. I also brought an adapter but never needed to use it.
  3. I had been assigned a IG inside on a GTY rate, the prices dropped and I called and asked if I could get a complimentary upgrade. They did, no charge and we got a porthole window cabin. No as good as we'd hoped but it was a good cabin.
  4. Here was the scenario when we booked our AK cruise for May 2019 We booked just after final payment deadline and the prices had dropped to $549 p/p we thought that was a good price for 7 days and we booked. It was an inside GTY, we were assigned a IG cabin on deck 9 fwd. I kept watching the fares, it dropped a few weeks after that to $449 p/p asked for my 1 free upgrade and got a porthole cabin on deck 4 and there we stayed. 3 weeks before sail date and the prices just kept falling -- down to $250 p/p a week before sail date. I wish we would have waited, we fly standby anyways so no flight booking was involved. This was on the JEWEL on the second inside passage cruise of the sesason.
  5. Don't worry, the porters will have tags and will write Your cabin number. They have a roster to consult if you don't know.
  6. Think of this as a resort fee, that most every hotel adds to your final bill. You can tip above this, but not mandatory.
  7. You need to install the app before you leave. You DO NOT need to pay for the wifi package on board. The app lets you see the activities for the day, and general information. You CAN'T text, call or do anything else with the free app.
  8. Have you looked at MyNCL ?? Sometimes the bidding page is right there under plan your cruise.
  9. Then the towns need to increase the port charges and taxes for the stopover. That is what some of these fees passengers pay for in their cruise fare.
  10. I wouldn't buy the museum card, you can spend a whole day at the Reijksmuseum. Another fun thing to do is the Heinekin Brewery Tour, your entrance fee also includes 2 beers on the tour or soda if you don't imbibe. I hope you are awake enough for your House tour on your landing day.....I think you are trying to squeeze a lot in.
  11. Leave messages on the stateroom phone, public white phones are located all over the ship. Otherwise just figure out what you want to do together and plan around that using the Freestyle Daily or the NCL app for 'whats going on".
  12. Does not include room service, package sales, ship specific promotions or beer buckets, designated Super Premium brands (subject to change), bottled wine, mini bar purchases, bottled water, fresh squeezed juices, select Lavazza coffee beverages, energy drinks, vending machines, souvenir items or wine stations. Regular coffee is free in the Buffet and from the coffee maker in your stateroom. Free coffee from room service before 10 am as well.
  13. Subject to an additional gratuity added to the cake ... for your convenience of course
