  1. We are not sunbathers and did not used the pool deck area other than to cross from side to side and our experience during the thanksgiving week 2019 on Encore changed our love for NCL. We will sail again on NCL but never ever again on Encore. If you had small children and counted on the camp for some free time, forget it unless you want to make a line on deck 5 at least 30 mns prior to camp time openings. I spent so much time making lines so my son can have fun in camp and diminished my rest time during the cruise. So many parents upset that camp was full just 15 mns every time after opening.
  2. Hi Any has details on the dry dock for Pride of America May 2020? I have been searching without success on the details. thank you
  3. We sailed Encore on the thanksgiving first sailing from Miami. Having an 9 yr old on this cruise and dealing with the kids activities took most of our free time. From having sailed on Bliss and many other ships, the crew was not yet at is best. First with camp. We have not had any issues ever in any sailing to drop off my son. On this particular sailing, the ship had aprox 1400 kids and deck 5 had most of the time a line with very angry parents that could not drop off their child as it was always to capacity. For us to get his space, we did the line 45mn prior to camp opening. Corporate had a
  4. Hi We sailed twice a year with NCL and RCCL for the last 5 yrs but this would be our first sailing with Celebrity. We booked Edge for spring break 2020 and our concern is for our 9 yr old son coming with us. He is an aspergers child( high functioning autism) and my concern are meals. He is great at camp and loves it but he has taste sensory issue and his food selections are very limited. For breakfast, he must have Pediasure. On NCL we get permission to bring on board ahead of time but not sure if Celebrity has the same rules. Our other big concern is his daily food. We need to have chick
  5. Hi everyone. We just got off Encore this morning. We had a very smooth debarkation. Made the line at the Local 645am and was off the ship by 720 am. All great. On our personal experience, the level of care and attention my son had on the Bliss Alaska sailing did not materialized on this cruise but we understand they still need to get things better. Splash Academy was chaotic as this cruise had over 1300 kids and they only had capacity for 108( i believe). So what happen is most of us had to make line on deck 5 about 30-40 mn each time on sea days. NCL had this corporate representative ( Janet)
  6. Spoke to NCL and they apologize for this email sent to everyone. It only applies to international guest flying in and the panama canal sailings. Those that are in the US and returning do not need to be adding the middle name.
  7. Thank you ! Smart comment. In our case, I look for ships that have good camps and plenty of fun for my son. I recently booked on Princess because they revamped their camp with educational activities and fun things. I booked this ship and Bliss in the past because of the addition of activities, amazing camp layout and activities my 8 yr old enjoys as he is into tech. You are correct on Disney, when my son saw the water slide around the ship, he had to go. Now he sees laser tag all futuristic with holograms and he is very excited( so is my husband). I know Escape has the free rope course but so
  8. It is not dumb! It is what is popular now and technology advancements is the future. I am over 50 and my DH is also . He is looking forward to the laser tag and galaxy pavilion. My oldest son also is looking forward to it as we move with what is trending. No need to be so negative cause is not your thing. Im sure there are other areas, like the waterfront, to hang out and drink.
  9. this sale was very productive for us. I moved from a deluxe balcony to a mini suite for $60 difference. 🙂
  10. I love your post. We actually sailed Symphony of the Seas on spring break after an amazing cruise on the Bliss last year and returned to NCL in a heartbeat. I have young kids and camp is a salvation for us. I booked cruises depending on the activities my son will enjoy and at the same time, we can relax. Never used Vibe or the Spice place and still had an amazing experience aboard a huge ship. My favorite place to hang out was the waterfront couches with my mojito. We did the race track once and laser tag once. That was enough as our little one loved loved loved camp at Bliss 110% more than Sy
  11. Thank you so much for your information. The view in the pic is amazing and my husband loved the idea of total darkness on forward rooms. Im iffy about the cold blowing but last year it was very warm when we went on the Bliss.
  12. Hoping to get opinions on those who have sailed NCL Jewel after the dry dock- either Aft or forward penthouse. Which did you choose and why? Is there much more motion forward? We have sailed AFT and loved it but would be more amazing with a forward penthouse. My hesitation is motion as I need a patch to sail. Hoping the get opinions on which you sailed. Also interested in the Pre Cruise Tours- 11 day that visits the resort in Alyeska. We are not athletic and prefer to be relaxed so asking those who have done the Cruise Tours- where you rushed? did you do a lot of walking? Any experiences
  13. We have sailed several times on RCCL and liked it. Then we sailed on NCL Bliss last summer and would call it the best cruise ever. This past march 2019, we sailed on RCCL Symphony of the Seas. Had been on Allure of the Seas twice thought would be as great but NCL spoiled us. After our NCL cruise going to RCCL was a huge dissapointment in so many levels. The windjammer food was dried and reheated. We bumped into the captain of the ship on the elevator and he was not in a good mood. Took a picture with him and without any smile. The cabin was not taken care off like NCL did. We were so looking f
  14. The NCL credit of $100 when charge $500 appears on the platinum card. The credit is back on the card. I also had the World Cruises and used it to purchase a cruise on Princess for 2020, got 10,000 points ( $100) on the same card. Offers appear everyday.
