  1. Booked another NCL trip In studios, 2nd time on Epic, been on all the Breakaway class ships now. The itinerary on this one was the selling feature Travelling with friends but also hope to meet people on this trip.
  2. I do love the studios though and can't wait to the Bliss
  3. Hi I'm pretty much hooked on NCL having done my last 5 with them and my upcoming 2. Yes they do have FOD meetings every night, its posted in the nightly news, and the location is usually the same place around 7 or 8 depending on port days. Every ship I've gone on is inconsistent on the attendance at the meetings. I appreciate that NCL does it. I really wish they would choose the location better. The last ship I went on, The Breakaway, it was in Shakers, and I believe was poorly attended as its the bar right in the midst of all the evening activities. On the Escape & the Getaway it was in a smaller venue off to the side and was better attended. Hoping for a good location on the Bliss in March. Going as a solo traveller, the meet ups are pretty valuable for meeting new friends and having things to do in the evening (not what you think) - talking and people to go to dinner with.
  4. Hi Yes it is disappointing. I created one for my last cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway in the Baltic but not one replied. I did go to the FOD meets and those I met knew cruise critic but didn't see the roll call as its hidden down in the Boards. I appreciate that NCL does FOD meets and advertises them but I also really wish the cruise lines would not put them in areas that are so unclear to others that the meets are not successful. On NCL Breakaway it was in Shakers where it is a central open location that people use while waiting for the ice lounge or shopping. There is no way to have any kind of meeting. I still managed to meet some and made a friend so not all a loss. But I wish they were more successful.
