I agree that for those in the higher priced suites this package may be worth it for the discount alone.

I think you said you can't or don't want to drive, so it sounds like the car rental is not an option.

You did not say where you are flying into, Orlando or Cocoa Beach. If Orlando, There are...

OK, you know I love NCL! But you and I know this would be a BIG money maker for them if it proves popular. And if it is making money for them, then it can't offer much, if any, savings for the...

Ha Ha Ha.:D. Maybe one of the chefs over at Royal has a sense of humor! Or, maybe it was his last day on the job and he figured he'd get them good!

There is a response from NCL on their Facebook page and I printed it over on Paul's thread.

Yes, Bong is our favorite bartender. He was on our Sun cruise as well. We were delighted to see him on the Getaway. Had no idea he would be there. He claimed to remember us, but I don't know.;). ...

Loved the Star Bar on some of the NCL ships. Small and cozy with a piano and a nightly crooner and the occasional sing along. Love that Fabritzio! Used to have fantastic 2 for 1 Martinis, the best...

It is possible to upgrade your Travel insurance to Primary. I remember doing this once for a trip. But, I don't know if it really makes any difference who pays first. You still have the hassle of...

I have to say, I've never experienced a boring sea day. They seem to fly by. The ships now have so much to do. But still, a full 7 day cruise to no where is a bit much. I don't know how I would...

Well, sometimes your insurance will not cover you outside the US. Medicare will not, but it seems very few seniors are aware of this fact. And another thing to keep in mind is that a hospital half...

It would be a very cold day in hades before I would fly sitting, and I use the term loosely, on one of these contraptions. I would pay more money to a competitor with "real" seats, take the train,...
