  1. Onda was by far my favorite restaurant on Encore. Easily my favorite of any specialty restaurant on any ship. We ate there five times during our cruise it was that good! I highly recommend at least one dinner there and book soon because it does sell out pretty much every night.
  2. Only my cruise friends really understand my passion and excitement to get back on a ship. I got sick of listening to my non-cruise friends who believe all ships are "floating petri dishes". If I hear that phrase one more time I will scream.
  3. For about two months, my August cruise showed the same thing, us tendering in every port (Costa Maya, Cozumel, HC and Roatan). Now the words "tender port" are gone. Perhaps a computer glitch which happens frequently on the NCL site.
  4. Gem crew members are getting vaccinated in San Juan as did Encore crew. Unsure about others. My crew friends in Mumbai, India can't even get their work visas/paperwork approved because the hiring office is open only sporadically and they have yet to hear from NCL. I don't understand why other cruise lines have been able to bring in crew from India and yet NCL has only brought in a few.
  5. The big question is if NCL can get crew? I read somewhere that they need to re-hire/hire approximately 17,000 crew members and as of now they still can't get crew from India. Vaccinations are scarce in many other countries also so I hope these sailings actually go.
  6. For me it's not where we go, but that we go! Just being on a ship for two weeks next month is exciting.
  7. When you arrive, you will be asked if you wish to use one of your specialty dining credits. Just let them know you will pay directly and no problem.
  8. I am pretty sure this was sent out to travel agents. It is not on the NCL site yet.
  9. Onda was my favorite restaurant. Every single thing we ordered from appetizers (burrata salad) to the mains (veal milanese and pasta bolognese) to a luscious dessert of butterscotch pudding was out of this world. I could eat there every night!
  10. Thanks for the alert. Just saw it on my August 15 reservation.
  11. You can order sushi at the counter or any table in FR. The sushi rolls are delicious and of good size.
  12. Food at District Brewhouse is not free but not super expensive either. It's mostly small plates (and a very small selection at that) for around $10. Across the hall is Food Republic if you are looking for something more substantial.
  13. Additionally my rep told me that comped cruises no matter your tier status is now limited to five total. In the past as a Ruby level player I've had as many as seven or eight booked.
  14. You also have to fill out a form from the NCLH website with your cruise information and reservation number. Along with proof of shares you email both and should have your OBC applied within a week. Here is a link to the form: https://www.nclhltdinvestor.com/static-files/43324b8a-1e18-43ab-9664-b05fe3b6d9e5
