Question

They have ferries but they go to Hamilton City and George Town. The best way to get around town is the city buses. Just outside the port there is a booth where they sell the bus passes. You can buy 1,2 or 3 day bus passes and that will allow unlimited rides on the buses and the ferries too. You can buy single use tokens but the unlimited pass is better. The buses will take you to the beach. Get a bus route map when you buy the bus passes.

A 2 or 3 day bus/ferry transportation pass is the least cost for getting around the island and can be purchased at the Dockyard.

For Tobacco Bay take the Ferry to St. Georges and then a taxi or walk to the beach which is about 1-2 miles from where the ferry docks.

For Horseshoe Bay there's a direct bus to the beach from the Dockyard. To get back walk up to the South Shore road to the bus stand or take a taxi back.

Check out Bermuda's tourism web site for more info on transportation, maps of the island, etc.

City bus or private taxi. The bus passes are convenient, but make lots of stops along the way. Taxi can be a little more reasonable depending upon how many are in your group. We took a taxi our last trip and found both drivers (outbound and return) to be great. They shared lots of stories and history, and made some stops along the way for us for pictures and to see the sights a little better -- you won't get that with a bus.

Just logged on my NCL and realized that I can book dining and entertainment. But I still have 88 days to go. Just wondering if the policy of 45 days was changed. Don't want to book and then find out that this was a glitch.

Yes for all categories except for suites guests are able to pre book dinning and entertainment starting at 90 days prior to the sailing. For guests who are in a suite would be able to pre book starting at 100 days prior to the sailing.

I've read on some of the other message boards that the 45 day window has been expanded to 90 days now. Not sure what the suite window is (used to be 55 days).

After you reserve, you'll receive an email confirmation and it will be noted on your reservation; I can't imagine something being "confirmed" and then rescinded.

The last time I sailed was a few months ago and it was 45 days since I was in the balcony stateroom. It may have changed. If the reservation is open for you, you better take advantage of it and make the reservation before it gets sold out. Take a print out just in case it's a glitch. I'm sure NCL will allow you to keep your reservation if it's their glitch.

A GTY or guarentee cabin means that you are not choosing your cabin number at the time of booking. We would assign the cabin number for you, By booking a GTY cabin guarentees tghe guests the ship, the voyage, the fare, and a cabin in the category they paid for or possibly higher. A guarentee cabin does NOT guarentee the guests: deck or location, specific bedding, specific cabin number, upgrade or unobstructed view/ enclosed balcony. Once the cabin has been assigned there would be no changes.

You must have booked your stateroom with the option for an upgrade. A GTY room can be changed up to the day of sailing. You can be upgraded above what you booked/paid for, without a specific stateroom assigned until a few days before sailing.

I believe that refers to what they call a Room Guarantee. You are guaranteed a room of that category or higher. You will be assigned a cabin closer to your cruise date.

To gamble in the casinos, you must have a valid ID showing you are 18 years or older.

To consume alcohol you must be 21 or older, 18-21 to consume beer or wine with parent's consent. Refer to the following link for more info.

Gambling is 21.

Drinking is 21, but for 18-20 year olds, their parents (must be parent) can sign a consent form that will allow them to order beer and wine by themselves. They can't order alcoholic drinks otherwise.

However, when we dined with our 20 year-old the last time, no one ever asked him for ID.

For guests 0-3 years old there is no cover charge for specilaty dinning. For guests who are 12 yrs and younger are charged 50 % of the cover charge for the specilay resturants. For shore excursions participants under the age of 13 pay child prices and participants 13 years of age and older pay adult prices (unless otherwise noted on the shore excursion).

For specialty restaurants, children 3-years old and younger always eat for free, children 4- to 12-years old can choose from a complimentary Kids’ Menu or from the restaurant’s Specialty Kids’ Menu for half price. Refer to the following link: http://www.ncl.com/diningguide

For excursions I believe under 18 is considered a minor (child) unless specifically noted in the excursion description.

It depends...

We booked some excursions and dinners on our upcoming cruise for our 11 and 14 year olds on the trip, and the treatment of child vs. adult depended upon the excursion since they're operated by independents.

From an NCL perspective, from the website:

Prices

All prices are in U.S. dollars, capacity controlled and subject to change without notice. Prices for Hawaii only, DO NOT INCLUDE the additional Hawaiian State Tax that is assessed on all Shore Excursions. Prices include meals, refreshments as indicated in the tour description (including gratuities for these services), plus guide and entrance fees, unless otherwise noted. There is no charge for children under the age of 2 (at the time of sailing) who do not occupy a separate seat on most tours. Children's prices are only available as indicated at time of booking. Participants under the age of 13 pay child prices and participants 13 years of age and older pay adult prices (unless otherwise noted).

Yes, but it's not cheap.

http://www.ncl.com/about/staying-connected-sea-cellular-phone-service-texting

You should also reach out to your wireless provider to ensure you have a valid International Plan or that your phone is enabled for international dialing before you leave (some are not).

For reference, my provider is Verizon, and it's $2.49/minute -- and make sure data roaming is off. TXTing is something like 50cents per msg sent or received.

Once the ship is at sea your cellular phone would automatically connect to Freestyle Cellular Service through Wireless Maritime Services. You may want to check with your personal service provider for any international roaming rates that would apply.

"Corkage" fee is not for the staff removing the cork from the bottle, it's to offset (aside from the lost revenue) the costs/time of the waiter serving you, washing the glasses, and if you happen to break the glass, replacing one (or more).

Yes. You're not paying them to remove the cork. You're paying them for the privilege of bringing your own wine instead of buying theirs.

Burn the Floor is a show, just like Rock of Ages, that occurs in the main theater. The reservation you made is for the show in the main theater.

The Manhattan dining room has a dance floor and a couple of times per cruise, the crew of Burn the Floor has a show there. You cannot make reservations for the Manhattan room but if you are in the room having dinner, you can watch the show.
