  1. We are a group of 9. I booked tables of 8 and hope they will squeeze one in. Fingers crossed !
  2. I had some given to me and once opened it was very stinky and nothing like vanilla. I would be very cautious of anything bought in the touristy areas. It could be very diluted and/or not safe. I have a friend staying in Mexico for teo months that will bring me vanilla beans etc back, but she purchases it from the farm directly.
  3. I have read some posts where the Encore has docked early in SJ, rather than the scheduled 530 pm Curoius what time the ship has arrived? Would love to visit the Fort if we dock early enough
  4. I have to say that I was hopeful that our 2/9 would have GSC added as we missed it last round, but we have a charter booked for Tortola that I am really really excited about. I will take the longer day in Tortola! Can’t not wait to be on vacay!!
  5. I started checking daily to see if my edocs were ready around day 60, and I think they were there done 57?? But the email did not come for another few days. Our flight info email also came our edocs
  6. Maybe they whole thing is a techie computer glitch!
  7. Great StirUp Cay has been added to some Encore sailings, which would have been great if it was added to our Feb 9th one AND if it was anywhere likely to actually stop there. We missed it two years ago on the Escape and ended up in Nassau instead. Thr salings before and after ours seems to have it. Plus a number of other sailings through the spring. Interesting how NCL changes these things without any fanfare or information.
  8. Wait. We had the same thing. Tickets and edocs were ready around 57 days out.
  9. We have this group booked for Feb. approx $100 pp. very much looking forward to it
  10. Ok, so we got changed. At 59 days out our edocs were ready and our flights had changed again. Our place holder flights were always Toronto to FLL, we spoke to NCL and they confirmed flights on the phone to us (as above), flying into Miami. Yesterday when checking edocs realized it had changed again Home Departure City - YYZ- Toronto Arrival/Destination City - FLL - Fort Lauderdale Airline -Air Canada both directions Outbound Flight departure/arrival time - 6:20/9:38 AM Number of Connections - 0 Return Flight departure/arrival ti
  11. Over on FB Encore groups people are reporting that their cabins have been re-assigned (not guarantees or sail awaits) due to a mix up on NCLs side. Apparently some 3 person cabins were mislabeled (prior to the ship being completed) as 4 person cabins, and they are shuffling reservations around. Most are stating that they only noticed when printing edocs. Has anyone heard of this? It seems weird that it keeps coming up on that other pages but I haven’t seen anything here. We have 2x 4 person cabins booked in Feb, that are currently next door to each other.
  12. I am sure there is a fancier name for the machine that pours wine for you but let’s call it the vending machine. You swipe your cruise card and voila, your wine is poured is this machine available under the beverage plan? It wasn’t the last time we sailed but maybe it has changed. Thx
  13. I personally don’t think they are Terrible and it is exactly what I was anticipating for our flights. Look at resortforaday or whatever points you have for hotel or travel - spend the day sitting poolside or in a comfortable room unwinding from the cruise. I understand that the NCL flights are not exactly how we would book our own flights. But we can’t bave it both ways - want the perk of free/reduced airfare but also want to control the booking of the airfare.
  14. I called this week to ask about a request for our Feb 9 flights and was surprised to hear they were booked. The NCL agent immediately sent me the confirmations but did indicate they wouldn’t be ticketed until 40 days out
  15. We were able to have ours opened two years ago on the Escape. The side connecting to unknown guests had been opened from the previous cruise so when the steward came to our cabin to close that one perhaps he felt he couldn’t say no to opening the other side.
