  1. Yes. Sauna and small steam room in gents changing area available free of charge. Kneipp pool in the Serene Spa is out of service with plants put on top of it.
  2. Oh, I just LOVE the look on peopleโ€˜s faces when they return to โ€žtheirโ€œ reserved sunbed just to find out that SOMEBODY (of course it was me!) has removed their stuff and the sunbed is now occupied by ME! ๐Ÿ™‚ We used to take care of a cat for some time. When our dog came back inside the house and the cat was on his sofa: SAME LOOK ON THE FACE! ๐Ÿ˜„ So to all the sunbed hoggers on the Encore in September: be careful. Your stuff is not safe any more because I will be around! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  3. @Daneite Yes, USB outlets now on both sides of the bed (if I remember correctly 2 each)...
  4. I totally agree. It is all about marketing anyway. Experienced sommeliers in fine dining Michelin star restaurants would never suggest these champagne brands anyway as they prefer small and not very well known wineries in general. Also, keep in mind, that there are many Proseccos, Cavas and German Riesling sparklings out there who are priced much higher than the average champagne...
  5. It was not announced, I believe, but since I just spent a few days on Odyssey I was surprised to see M instead of NF. It's a nice champagne in my oppinion but will -- of course -- never reach the level of a vintage champagne (or a Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle or Cuvee Louise for example), nor will Moet by the way. To be honest, with all the NV champagnes I dont see a very big difference. For a free flow champagne it was lovely and the secret to it is: more you drink the less you will notice any difference...
  6. Dear all, Odyssey has indeed had some work done to the public areas in dry dock. We just got off the ship in Civi aka Rome. First of all, the ship looks completely new again from the outside - as white as on the first day. Inside the staterooms, new white marble furnishings were installed on the shelf facing the bed, inside the showers as well as the addition of automatic night lights under the nightstands, which were new as well. Also inside the hallways a lot of wooden walls were renovated, etc etc... so indeed they are trying to keep her in shape... what a lovely ship she is...
  7. Could the Seabourn moderator (or maybe someone else) tell me how to order caviar for my face whilst I am enjoying a Nicholas Feuillatte footbath in the spa? Also, is Dr Andrew Weil's beard available for purchase for my next Halloween party? Does Thomas Keller have a cellar? ... Enlighten me Seabourn ;-)
  8. ... and don't forget Hapag Lloyd's HANSEATIC nature and HANSEATIC inspiration ! I think the first one will debut in 2019. https://www.hl-cruises.de/schiffe/expeditionen/hanseatic-nature-hanseatic-inspiration
  9. Thank you very much for all the wonderful photos! It's the perfect preparation for our upcoming trip... I love what I see ... :cool:
  10. What a shame. I thought they had moved the shuffleboard to a different place. I wonder how Regent managed to come up with a shuffleboard space on Explorer... But thanks Seabourn. Glad you put soooo much thought into Ovation :-)
  11. Are there any facilities on Ovation or Encore like on the Odyssey class ships?:confused:
