  1. i believe they have done away with the free chips and salsa and fruit upon arrival as well which stinks. i have one rented for my september sail ill find out then i guess!
  2. resort for a day dot com. they have passes to Warwick (one im looking at), Riu, Breezes and Melia. Also the British Colonial Hilton. The BCH is decent, but it doesnt include food or booze. They do give you a $40 credit, but it doesnt go far after they deduct the various taxes, etc. Its convenient tho as its a 10 minute walk.
  3. i get the 23 hours of day light thing. but the OP is cruising in 43 days which is september. it will be dark out at night.
  4. thanks.... are all of the taxis safe there? weve never taken one. would a better option be the water taxi given Warwick's proximity to where the ferries dock?
  5. well, i half agree with the prior poster. Often we stay on the ship in Nassau as it is a bit dumpy for our taste. However, i do want some beach time. Knowing that the walk is safe and there are sidewalks helps. 2 miles is nothing. Taxis are approx. $15 one way which seems crazy for 2 miles. Thanks for the intel on the sidwalk availability. I was particularly concerned with the SP bridge.
  6. food tastes the same no matter where you sit. also i find it amusing that folks want a window at dinner time when its always dark out anyway (unless you are eating at 5pm).
  7. i work with a dedicated PCC at NCL. she has booked every single one of the cruises you see in my siggy. she's great.
  8. cross posted to Bahamas board. i am considering a day pass to Warwick Paradise Island resort. Looks nice, and is all inclusive in terms of food and booze. According to Googlemaps, its 1.8 miles from the port. Anyone know if this is safe to walk? I like getting my exercise in and am an avid walker - assuming the route is safe (ideally sidewalks and no sketchy people/places). Ive been to nassau half a dozen times but have never attempted this walk. we have done the BCH and/or stayed on ship or done a ship excursion.
  9. we never book sail away as we like the booze package. that said, i just booked a sailaway ocean view on Sky because the booze is included. After about a week i was assigned my room. im quite pleased to see i got an unobstructed porthole on deck 8. i was fully prepared to be sleeping with the fish on deck 4 or 5.

  11. i am blessed to not need special access services, but i am delighted to hear they do such things like the quiet muster drill for those that do need this accomodation. part of why i love NCL!
  12. it amazes me hwo many people dont know how to balance their checkbook and stay on top of their finances. even $50 extra in my account would not go unnoticed. reminds me of a girl i used to work with years ago to complained her landlord cashed her rent checks late and they'd bounce. She'd always say that the money was there when the check was written and that it was his fault for cashing it late because then the money was spent elsewhere.
  13. we did Tulum and HIGHLY recommend. if you go, def book thru the ship. its a boat ride and a bus ride lasting about 1.5 hours each way give or take. our excursion got back very late and fortunately teh ship was waiting for us as we were on an NCL tour.
  14. i will say when i tip its not flashy. usually the bill is folded up and i hand it to them with my ship card on top. they feel the bill and slip it in their pocket or tip cup in a very swift movement. perhaps others do somethign similar so tehy are tipping and you dont see it? Ive also seen people plop the cash right on the bar.
  15. this is just part of cruising. if there is a destination you really want to see then its best to fly there and visit. we missed Stockholm entirely due to winds when we went on our Baltics sail. It was disappointing, but again, that's cruising.
