  1. I really liked the aft balcony penthouse on the Jewel, sister ship to pearl. did that in Alaska and sat out (with jacket) all the time. I've done a forward facing suite on the sky a smaller older ship. the wind did make it challenging and you are exposed but it's a larger, huger if I may balcony. If your cruise has alot of sea days I'd go Aft, if you plan to hold parties on your balcony I'd go forward. Hope that's of some help.
  2. Question about the paddle boats, I see them in your photos but I can only book kayaks on ncl.com. Were the paddle boats just a walk up price ? Thanks.
  3. I read on cc that we needed to take bus outside of the port to get a taxi but that's seems to no longer true.
  4. I was in a suite on the Dawn. There's a free bottle of sparkling wine on the first day. There was a coffee maker in the room that gets replenished. You'll pay for water / mini bar etc. Butler was like a senior room steward for us, brought snacks mid afternoon and will be the person to answer your call. They can arrange room service, help unpack etc. The concierge is like onsite guest services, She in our case was helpful with booking activities and resolving a problem. Suite guest get preferred seating in the theater and have a private breakfast restaurant. The concierge can also arrange for priority exit from the ship at ports.
  5. Thanks for the video. What did you think about the aft cabin? how was the noise level / engine vibration etc.
  6. Thankfully I've never seen this behavior in all my cruises. I can understand unarmed "security" not wanting to get injured themselves or worse for the cruise line hurt a passenger while 'breaking up a fight'. fights can start anywhere yes but then the police come and someone gets arrested and then there's consequences, at sea that seems rather murky. Ejection from the ship seems the worst you can get, then there's jurisdiction issues etc.... I would be ok with a few large X cops on board and visible, with a taser, you're less likely to start something if you feel there's an actual consequence.
