  1. I concur (it is really really really hard trying to obtain facts on any "news" these days)
  2. We are platinum as well, lately ncl has been the cheapest and most convenient, however we are not married to them and have over 365 days of cruising, unfortunately not with one cruise line so very limited perks across. We are active so carnival, royal, and ncl work best, funny though the most points we have is with HAL and there aint nothing to do on HAL. Oh the fajitas at osheans, our favorites!
  3. (your post if kind of off topic but in the ball park) However I dont know what you are trying to say - are you saying the tourists deaths have nothing to do with the safety in the DR? or are you saying the deaths are being swept under the rug and it is not safe in the DR? or are you trying to say something else - thanks
  4. I take megabus to penn station area then walk down 34th street west to the hudson river then walk up north to the pier, pier is about 1.3 miles from penn station
  5. Same price? For the love of $%#^ take the balcony!!!
  6. That sounds like fun! We are value cruisers and dont drink (other than the free sparkling wine and free wine with platinum dinner) we always gty/sailaway. Some people love to drink and they will drink all day every day, in that case a package perk may turn out to be better but the "free at sea" numbers never work out for us. Even with a great room location you can still get lousy neighbors that make crazy amounts of noise.
  7. "Epic has little area in which to actually have connection out to sea on the public decks" Bingo Bongo Boom, Epic might be ok for a port intensive cruise but outside of value the major reason we cruise is for the sea, sight lines, etc. New York and the Dawn, that cant be beat, heck spend a day in nyc, nothing like it
  8. That fire excuse does not hold water, NCL constantly wastes paper by putting numerous flyers about art auctions, etc. outside my door
  9. lets hope smoking is the next to go, outahere
  10. Well that is pretty harsh I would not agree with your conclusion, probably just miscommunication and embarrassment.
  11. oh that is quite another big jump, a big assumption, no of course not, i simply adjust the DSC, easy peasy, quick and easy 😃
  12. probably the staff was embarrassed and tried to protect themselves, probably some miscommunication between the staff as to what is allowed, there is no here.
  13. thats quite a jump from what i communicated, I pay tips for services rendered, (example I never use a maitre de at buffet so I will not give him/her a tip because they work in the dining room)
