Splash academy is amazing!!! We went in 2014 and will be going again this may in 2016 and have a 9 year old who loved going to splash academy, they are open from early morning to late night and from our experience the children did not want to leave. They have theme days to keep the kids interested and excited and everything is by age group so the young ones will not be with anyone older then them so you don't have to worry about any of the kids feeling uncomfortable! We loved it and the best part is it is INCLUDED with everything!

Nickelodeon is no longer on any NCL ship. For the most part daily activities outside Splash Academy are for adults. Occasionally during the cruise WII games are available for play on the big screen in the Atrium, times will be listed in the daily activity sheet. Shuffle board is available on decks 7 & 13 which you can enjoy with your kids as well as the kids pool and water slide on deck 12 mid-ship.

At the checkout you can pay in full, pay $250 and the rest later or choose your own deposit amount. If you want to make installments you can just make payments at any time from your account overview.

NCL has changed the format of Chocoholic Night. In place of this buffet, they feature a special all-chocolate menu in the main dining rooms and specialty restaurants.

We just spent two weeks on the Breakaway, and I don't recall any venue called the grand pacific dining room. Also, this section of the user forum is for questions about the Gem. The schedule of the chocolate lovers' night varies by ship as well as by cruise. The best thing to do is to check the schedule in your Freestyle Daily newsletter once you are on board for the latest info and schedules of all events.

We are looking into booking the Haven for the first time. Is the experience different on the Gem vs. the Breakaway?

The Haven Courtyard on the Gem is somewhat smaller than on the Breakaway. There's no Haven restaurant on the Gem, but you can have breakfast & lunch in Cagney's. The Breakaway has a Haven Lounge with bar, which isn't on the Gem. That being said, it's still a great experience on any ship. WARNING - once you've sailed in the Haven, you'll find it difficult to go back to a balcony or mini-suite.

There are some significant differences between the two ships' facilities and design. The Breakaway has a much larger number of Haven suites, a large Haven lounge, dedicated pool and spa facilities, and a separate dining room. The quality of service, however, especially from your butler and concierge, should be just as good.

Better deal..on board credit or beverage package?

answer 1
The answer to that question really depends on your drinking habits. If you are an average drinker with one or two drinks per day then the cost is not worth it. If you plan to drink more than 6-7 drinks per day then you could justify the cost.
NCL doesn't publish the price of the drinks but the cost is what you can expect to pay at any regular bar or restaurant. You can price out what your daily drinking cost would be to see if the package is worth it.

That's a subjective question depending on who you ask. You need to compare the value of the credit versus the package, then based on your preferences decide. For example, individuals who consume maybe zero to two drinks a day would opt for the credit as that would be a better value.
