Hello...I am looking to book a 10 day RT from NY Caribbean cruise in May 2010. This will be my first Princess cruise. I have sailed on NCL for my last 5 cruises. I am pretty optimistic person an believe thatay "bad" day on a cruise is better than day at work. Here are some questions I would like some feedback on:
1. Anytime Dining: from what I have read it s similar to NCL Freestyle? I love this option. We usually eat at all different places: buffet, main dining room, speciality etc. What are your thoughts?
2. Sanctuary: I understand thi is $20 per day. Is $200 or the whole10 day cruise worth it? I like quiet, and to rest and relax. But, I can only imagine spending maybe 2-3 hours here a day. I am worried that if I don' sign up right away, I won't get a spot.
3. Lotus Thermal Spa: I bougt a spa package NCL Pearl for9 days(sauna, pools, hot tubs, stone beds etc.) it was well worth it. Can you tell me about the Lotus Thermal spa? Can you get a package for both spa and sanctuary?
4. International Cafe: Is this all pay food and drink, any freebies?
5. Prices for coffee cards?
Any other tips, suggestion?
