This is a great innovation, and I hope it extends to the entire fleet (both tvs and the iconcierge app). Does any other cruise line currently put their MDR menus on cabin televisions?

Thanks for confirming there are no showers in the gym or in the gym changing area. Not a dealbreaker by any means.

One thing I haven't been able to sort out is if there are showers in the gym. Everyone seems to talk about the spa showers, which carry a price. I have no interest in anything related to the spa, but...

That sounds the absolute opposite of "As You Wish" whether in open or assigned seating, and is every bit as bad as forcing passengers who'd rather eat alone to sit with others. I'm sorry this...

But, sometimes that's the precise signal we wish to send, that personal interaction isn't wanted. If I have my nose in a book, that means "leave me alone." If my head's up and I'm looking about, that...

I agree with many of the OP's observations so far as the Jewel-class ships, but don't necessarily think the same observations apply to the whole fleet.

FWIW, I found several excellent things to...

This. Exactly. I realize there are others who are very regimented in how they like to eat...same time, same place, same pre-dinner drink, etc. That's not for me, which is why Freestyle is so great!

The only thing I don't like about SAS (and probably the other shuttle companies) is that you're required to keep your cell phone on. I never turn mine on unless I'm making a call. YMMV.

Thank you! I missed the photos the first time around. I think the new furniture is a big plus. I'm especially happy to see real armchairs that aren't barrel-style.

The best possible solution would be for NCL to put a ship in Baltimore to pair cruises with the Horseshoe Casino. The Spirit or Sky would work great!

NCL Crown to Bermuda. I think it was one of the last cruise ships to go to all 3 stops: Front Street, St. George, and Dockyards. It was a nice cruise, but that amazing cruise on the Spirit to...

Bon Voyage to all, and Happy Birthday, Lisa! I loved the Jewel, and I'm looking forward to your views of sailing from Houston. I'm thinking about taking the Jade when she starts sailing from there.

I prefer NCL, because my experience is that they are better at dealing with the solo cruiser who prefers to be alone, but there's much to like on both lines.

Carnival has better MDR food; NCL has...

I must be living on the edge. I only take my daily meds, and usually a couple of seasickness pills, because I usually become ill before I get my "sea legs" on the second or third day. Next time I'm...

They're the same 3-part bathrooms, with the toilet-in-a-cubbyhole. Inside cabin bathrooms aren't divided.

A 6-day Canada/NE itinerary on the NCL Spirit a few years back, with the unusual port stop of Martha's Vineyard. Everything about that cruise was nearly perfect.
