  1. I'll be cruising solo on the Horizon exactly one month from today, and have reservations for the Steakhouse, Jiji Asian, Bonsai Teppanyaki, Cucina del Capitano, and the Chef's Table... Photos and Live Review will be incoming...
  2. A few weeks ago, I reached 120 days out from the December 1st sailing of the new NCL Encore. Normally, this is the point when you can easily make dining reservations online... Well, I tried for several days with no luck, so I called customer service to try and sort this out. I waited approximately an hour on hold, and finally reached a representative. I was able to get all of the preferred times that I wanted, but Onda was still not showing up on their end. They could, however make me a reservation for La Cucina, which doesn't exist on the Encore. They said that once Onda was built into the system, that the La Cucina reservation would automatically be transferred... Later that day, I received an email confirmation for my dining times. Fast forward to today... Onda, as well as all other venues are now able to be booked online... I called, and again patiently waited on hold to make sure my La Cucina reservation would be honored... They said that I could cancel my La Cucina reservation and replace it with Onda, but the time I had initially chosen was no longer available. I asked her why they would make me a reservation for a restaurant that doesn't even exist, if it weren't a "placeholder" for the one that did?... She said I could speak with a supervisor, but it would be another half hour or so wait... I told her to just make me a reservation for whatever time that I could get, and I would try to fix it once on board. Another case of great NCL costumer "no-service"...
  3. There is an exterior deck on the Lobby level... Hardly anyone ever out there, and close to the waterline...
  4. I'm on the 35 day countdown to the Horizon, so this'll hold me over until then... I've cruised the Glory 2 times, and even though it doesn't have all the "bells & whistles" of the newer ships, it's still a great ship...
  5. I wish I was in a situation where I wouldn't notice $900 extra dollars in my account...
  6. I used to splurge for balconies, but I find that I'm equally as happy with an inside cabin... I do, however have to get the beverage package...
  7. The Platinum coupon is for two meals at Cagney's or Le Bistro and La Cucina or Moderno, so you could still eat at both places for free, and save your SDP meals for other places...
  8. I clicked on this thread just to find out what "brekkie" is...
  9. Several times over the past few days, when I click on a thread, the page cycles, but it ends up completely blank... If I click back, and then on the thread again, it usually loads... Frustrating, but it always works after one or two tries... I thought it was my phone messing up, but I guess it's just the CC site...
  10. Nice review so far!... How much did the bottle of veuve run you after the ppbp discount?
  11. I will most definitely be upgrading my package on the Encore in December... Since I booked through a travel agent, I paid absolutely no gratuities on my base package to begin with... I tried upgrading on the breakaway earlier this year, but they had just introduced it, and it wasn't available until the sailing following mine...
  12. I referred to it as the "secret breakfast location" ... While people were standing in line up at the buffet, I was having a leisurely meal in the Ocean Plaza...
  13. I always just order whatever I want, even if they do say there's a one item limit for an appetizer or side... When the bill comes, I have never been charged for any of the additional items...
  14. From the main forum page, scroll down to the Floatawawy Lounge... Then look for Sid's Ay Tee El (ATL)
