And back under “sail”


Yesterday it was early when we sailed in. Unlike the Panama Canal there were only a few of us up and on the observation deck enjoying the light show.

This morning, there I was all set for argument. Norwegian, unlike the other cruise lines which I have been on bills all back to backs as one cruise. When I arrived in my cabin yesterday, it was conspicuously laking in materials relating to the Latitudes program. In plain english – there was nothing about my perks for this leg of the voyage.

So off I went to do battle. My first stop was the NextCruise Desk.

Hey Kimberly – I didn’t get my Latitudes Benefit Card this time.

Oh, I am so sorry. Here you go, and your water, strawberries and wine should be delivered today. Did you want to sign up for the Behind the Scenes Tour or Meal with an officer.

Oh, yes. And the wind went right out of my sails. Part way through the afternoon, my new OBC showed up along with the second set of Internet Minutes without any of that from the last cruise being gone.

If I had known that the OBC rolled over as well….

So now I know. Book NCL back to backs as separate cruises and you do get your perks for each leg. Book as one long cruise and it is one set of perks. But NCL only does one billing regardless of how many legs you have booked so that there is carry over internally of benefits from the first leg to any succeeding legs of a back to back to whatever….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
