    insurance question

    While your question is not one that I can answer for you, I wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for the anxiety you are going through - life’s squeeze plays can be miserable! I hope all is well after all evaluations are complete. 🙂
  2. While being a doctor and a meteorologist do not add up to a lot of work-related flying, I do understand how quickly you can become spoiled and begin thinking something is necessary and not a luxury. My husband is usually the calmer of the two of us, but when we found out that due to a delayed flight we were moved from first class to economy on a flight across country from Seattle to Atlanta and then his screen was on the blink I thought my husband’s head would blow off - he was a bear the entire way (which did not help my feelings of course since I too was stuck back there). I have been blaming it on age; I can remember my parents telling me when I was X years old that I too could afford to do Y and so here I am at age X (apparently just this side of old)!! 🤪
  3. I think it would me rotten to show up for a vacation with one thing in your head and it’s another! Some of us spend a lot of time collecting information, but I am sure these slight differences and changes “bites” many a cruiser ☹️ For some the difference in expectation and reality would ruin an otherwise great vacation. Luckily not in this case, but then I would not consider the majority of posters here as the average cruiser in a variety of ways - all good of course! 🤓
  4. It honestly can be quite confusing and that is why I asked. To make matters worse, there is incorrect information all over on various boards and blogs because it’s older info and things change quickly. I wanted to be sure which benefits you had before launching into them 😬 I hope that you have a great time! PS I miss Nashville, I lived there for about 2 years (in cool springs) and joined a busy group practice downtown. Although I thought it was fabulous, I ended up heading back home to Atlanta. But Nashville remains a bright spot!
  5. @tiny260 In general the name would not matter, but it only mattered because in the original post he used the term “Sky loft suite” (although he seems to have later edited it to say Royal loft suite) since he was asking about royal perks it seemed reasonable to me to verify which he was really sailing in from the start so as not to confuse the matter more and to be truly helpful (as I have seen so many posts where people were not accurate about which type of suite they had booked). Otherwise, certainly the name would not have mattered. My intent was to help and thus clarify.
  6. Which is why I started by saying it may be that he used the wrong term, definitely a possibility. 🙂 But sometimes people who don’t sail often are confused about which benefits go with which suite given the similar names for some of them. It certainly can be confusing.
  7. It may be that you didn’t write the correct suite name, but the Sky Loft Suite in the Oasis to the best of my knowledge is a SKY class suite (wonderful perks in my opinion, just not the over the top stuff with Royal class). The Royal Loft is larger and in the ROYAL class. Unless something changed quite recently... In SKY class you do have the reservation priority and assistance with any needed from a concierge. Sounds like that is what you are wanting anyway (it is actually what we prefer It to ROYAL for a few reasons). Enjoy your trip!

    I thought the same thing when I saw that video! And their wallets...

    Photo Package

    I noticed an “all photos” package today for our May Grandeur sailing - don’t really seeing that before (and it was 199!). One of the only things that I prefer on Norwegian vs RCL is the lower price on their photos and the inclusion of all 8x10’s with the digital copies. But unlimited... now you’re talking! But if I ever get that they will have me in front of every camera I can find since I will get my money’s worth - at Disney a few years back we must have ended up with 400 pics because my husband decided to get the unlimited package 🙀😂🤣
  11. I have NO idea who you are talking about... 🤫
  12. We enjoy a suite for a couple of reasons - we spent decades not being able to do any substantial traveling (because I was in grad school and then widowed, hubby served in the military for 3 decades, etc.) and so when we got the chance we wanted to make the best of it AND I am a “nester” in that I like going out but I want a place to return to that feels good/comfy (while I am not shy at all, I am an introvert at heart and so getting away from the masses for a time to breathe is pretty important to me). ‘BUT... my parents began cruising long before most people (in the late 60’s) - given inflation, cruises were more expensive at that early point, but they kept on cruising for decades. And although they could afford a suite, they usually took one of the inside rooms or ones without any balcony because they said they were never in the room anyway! They didn’t care how anyone else saw it, they were doing what worked for them. It depends on budget for sure, but I think it also depends on what your priorities are for travel and how often you want to do it. I don’t think of it in terms of “shoulds” but rather what is realistic and what makes you happy. Happy Sailing 🧜🏼‍♀️
  13. It is strange to go through that pass and realize just how close Cuba is! We got some pics of it, but not the sunrise. Cool picture 😊

    We prefer the OS on the Allure. To us it feels more spacious, as you know the storage space is insane, and we love the giganitic balcony. Honestly, as big as the loft suites are, they feel so narrow/tight to me for some reason (more so than the videos and photos I had seen prepared me for... ). As someone already mentioned, I can see an upside to being near the CL and lounge if you plan on eating all meals there and the lounge is something you use often. But we like a variety and so Deck 10’s OS puts us in a good location to access everything. Just my 1.5 cents 🧜🏼‍♀️ But if you have stayed in the OS maybe you want to try a Loft.

    Golden Suite

    This just seems like another name for Sky class... at least from what I read.
