  1. Wow, well that was pretty rude of you!!!! So it's OK for people to complain on this thread... but not for me to say that if people don't like it they have the option to go elsewhere???? I was following this thread because I am booked on the Encore next year and am interested in the progress... but it suddenly turned into page after page of NCL-bashing and you have the gall to tell me to go elsewhere??? Well thank you, I certainly will.
  2. Exactly! If you don't like the lay out... don't book this ship. It really IS that simple. If you don't like the NCL brand... don't book NCL! Life is short, spend your money on what makes YOU happy! There are plenty of cruise lines to go around. ;)
  3. We were on the Escape in April and Adrian confirmed he'd be opening the Encore. We are booked for May of 2020 in the Haven and he counted on his fingers and said he'd still be there in May. :)
  4. I totally agree... it threw me for a loop the first time too. ;) My sister saw the confirmation and asked if we were getting a spa treatment on day 1 and that 4:01pm seemed "very specific". She was super excited when I told her it starts at 4:01 and goes all week. Oh, not sure if anyone mentioned this, but the spa generally closes early on the last night. 8pm on the big ships hs been the norm in my experience. Have a GREAT cruise!!
  5. It's normal... access to the spa starts right after sail-away. The passes are good from that point forward. :)
  6. If I do nothing else on a cruise... I buy the Spa passes! I think my Hubby would literally die if he couldn't go to the steam room every morning. lol Seriously though the Escape spa is great. It's large and QUIET (no kids allowed) and relaxing. Literally one of my favorite places to go. :) I know some people are saying to go tour it before you buy, but bear in mind the price is higher if you purchase on board. I've seen some posts from people saying they purchased, toured and didn't like it and were given a full refund, but I can't confirm that to be true. I think you and your sister will LOVE it. My sister and I are leaving on 4/14 and I splurged and got us both passes, she is going to be so happy to have a quiet place to retreat to... especially considering we are traveling on an April vacation week... YIKES! Well, we are in Haven anyhow, so hopefully it won't be too hectic. Good luck and have a GREAT trip!
  7. Le Bistro HANDS DOWN! ;) By far my favorite specialty restaurant. :)
  8. I wasn't citing the "rules"... I was citing my own personal experience and our voicemail said "no jeans". Get over yourself!!!!
  9. As mentioned previously Le Bistro DOES have a dress code and they even called our room the afternoon of our reservation to "remind" us of it. No shorts, jeans, tanks, etc. We were well aware of the dress code... but for anyone that wasn't the reminder would have surely been appreciated as I saw a quite a few people show up dressed inappropriately (hoochie shorts and a crop top on one young lady). We had a lovely table by a window on the Escape last fall and we could see them turning away a TON of people... many very underdressed... but Le Bistro is also a busy specialty restaurant, so they could have also been people without reservations stopping to see if they could get in. Hubby wore khakis and golf shirts and I wore capris and a blouse or a sundress with a light sweater to every specialty restaurant we visited and we were dressed fine. :)
