Haven't been on the site in a while...nice to be back. Question for all and sundry about the Dawn. We sailed on her on 3/14/04 for a 7-day. This time we're booked in cabin 11118 (Balcony category BA)...we're thrilled with this cabin because it's on the top, midships and all amongst the suites! Awesome! Anyway, as usual I'm rambling.
Here's my quesiton. With all the threads I read about booze on board you'd think all cruisers are alcoholics. However, being as we're treating ourselves to a balcony we thought it would great to be able to have an occasional night cap on the balcony. I have heard that you can get a bottle on board from the line (I'm sure at quite a premium...but it beats smuggling booze in a listerine bottle).
Has anyone ever done this? We're lovers of Bombay Safire and would be willing to pay a premium to have a bottle to enjoy a gin and tonic now and then.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also, I'm really impressed with NCL's early booking fares and when I compared to online travel agents I found that NCL's price was great and I got to pick the cabin. I'm dealing directly with NCL which is fine with me. I don't mean for one moment to undermine the excellent travel agents and agencys out there but for those of us who are travel and internet savvy this is a great way to do it. When we dealt with an agency for the last cruise it seemed like so many emails and calls went back and forth before we had all the information we needed.
That's it...thanks for listening and if anyone is on this cruise let us know.
We'd love to meet up with all...the more the merrier but since Paul and I are a gay couple it'd also be great to meet any gay and lesbian travelers as well.
Happy cruising eveyrone...can't wait until December!
