Where are the haven pools located?

answer 1
The Haven pool is on Deck 16, just forward of the Haven Lounge. It's quite shallow, more of a wading pool, but there also are two spas, a sauna, and a sun deck adjacent to it.

Within the Haven courtyard, Deck 16 forward. If you see a photo, it may look like three pools. Two of them are only a few inches deep, meant for relaxing in a lounge chair. The third is the only swimming pool, and it's on the small side. There are also two hot tubs in the courtyard.

do i have to use the same debit card that we paid for the cruise with when boarding (for the initial authorization hold?

What if there isnt $300 in the account, can you use a cash hold

answer 1
Yes, you can use cash to setup your initial account. However, your account will be frozen if you go over the limit until you add more funds. You can use a credit/debit card to setup your account at the port and you can use cash to settle the account on the last night of your cruise to avoid the charges showing up on your credit/debit card.
Also remember that the charges are per person, so you will have to multiply it by the number of guests travelling with you.

You can use any card you like. It's better to use credit cards than debit cards. The temporary hold placed against debit cards can take several days to be released, delaying your access to your money.

You may use any credit or debit card which NCL accepts. If the card you tender is declined because there is not a large enough balance available on it, you will be asked for a different card to secure your on board account.

I'm booked in a MX category mini suite - the deck plans do not show these rooms - where are they and when can I expect a room number assignment

asked 4 months, 3 weeks ago
By

answer 1
MX is the code for a guaranteed mini-suite, meaning that you are assured that NCL will provide you with a stateroom of equal or better quality than the minimum for that class of stateroom. Depending upon what rooms other passengers have reserved and what is left over, you are guaranteed to get at least a mini-suite. You could get lucky and be assigned a better stateroom. The only time my wife and I have sailed with a guaranteed room, we did not receive our cabin assignment until we arrived in Barcelona on the day before embarkation, and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was for a balcony room when we had paid for an inside cabin.

MX just means you guarantee a category of stateroom, but you do not get to specifically pick which room. They will assign you a room. It will be at least a room in the category you chose, which in your case is a mini suite. It can be on any deck, but it will be at minimum, a mini suite. You could possibly end up in a higher category room, but you will at the very least, be in a mini suite.

You have a GTY reservation which guarantee accommodation. The rate you got the room is a discount rate which means that the room will be assigned any time after the final payment is done. In some cases, the cabin may be assigned at the time of check-in. Log into your NCL account and check often for updates.

Here is the link for the floor plans on the ship.You can find the generic floor plan and pics for a mini-suite.

I only found them on deck 8 forward via the "Deck Plans" link even though the description says decks 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14. Stateroom is assigned anytime between final payment and the day of boarding so you'll have to check your reservation via "My NCL" frequently to know what stateroom you've been assigned.

I believe that NY is one of the ports where they don't allow you to check in water and soda. It is a restriction imposed by the port authoritative and not NCL. However, you can carry them as your carry-on luggage.

Yes, you may bring cases of water or soda on board with you. They must be full, factory sealed cases. In most ports you may check them with your luggage and they will be delivered to your room. In other ports you must carry them on board yourself. I have not yet sailed out of New York, so I am not sure if you will need to carry them, but according to NCL policy they will not be confiscated.

Does the Breakaway Ship have Reisling wine onboard?

By

4 answers
Answers
answer 1
When we were on the Breakaway this past February, they offered three wines that may interest you. There was a Reisling from Rosemount Estate in Australia, a Spatelese from S.A. Prume in Germany, and a Gewurztraminer from Hogue Cellars Winery in the State of Washington. The selections change from time to time based on availability, so the offerings on your cruise may vary, but there probably will be some Reisling or similar wine available when you sail.

You can check in cases of sodas or water with your luggage. You can also put them in your carry on bag. There is no restriction on how many cases you can get but I believe NY is one of the ports where due to port restrictions they don't allow you check the cases but you are allowed to carry them as a carry on.

Answers
answer 1
The mini-suites are a little bigger, but you will not notice the difference really. As far a perks, a mini-suite is not considered a suite, so there are no added benefits. If you are looking for getting a mini-suite, get a spa mini-suite so that you get free access to the spa. I had one of these when I cruised earlier this year, and because the first two days were cool, it was nice to have access to the spa because there is a pool in there as well as other things.

Since you are docked in Bermuda for 3 days, you are better of buying a 3 day pass bus and ferry pass. The tickets are sold just outside the dock and the pass allows you unlimited rides in the city bus and ferry system.
There is a beach that is walking distance of the pier but the better beaches are accessible using the city buses. The buses also have maps that shows you all the tourist destinations and the route number to reach the tourist stops.

Snorkel Park Beach is about a 5 minute walk from where the ship is docked at the Dockyard. Also, there are buses and cabs which can take you to the beaches on Bermuda's southern shore which are about a 30 - 40 minute ride. Combination bus/ferry passes are available for purchase at the Dockyard and are good for unlimited use for 1,2 or 3 days and are less expensive than paying as you ride.
