I'm on the NCL Escape in June. Unlimited Beverage Package and 4 specialty dining experiences. Chose the Escape based entirely on the beer available on board. District Brewhouse for the win. [img]http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/680357014b24edee39f09833c0cf5063a7e3a719/c=261-0-4347-3072&r=x5...

re: Izzo's Sues Rouses - Ex-Popcorn on 4/19/16 at 11:35 am
really doesn't matter than they eliminate 1 and allow others. Perhaps they feel Izzo's is a bigger competitor to what they are trying to do?

Very common. 2) The exclusion issue is a lease provision favoring the TENA...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
