  1. Hey cot, you were on the 9 day Nav just after our 9-day. We also liked the Bamboo Room a lot. The appetizer's were all excellent and the drinks are as good as advertised. We saw a fully mixed busy/not busy vibe during our 9-day. My thought: if it was located with some exterior water view I think it becomes a 'go to' all the time. Being locked in on the Promenade changes that vibe. We also spoke to a bartender on our last night. I came right out and asked why they are not overly friendly. He apologized and said it was his last night after 8 months straight and it is a hard place to work. He was probably referring to your comments about the detail needed in making their cocktails.
  2. I did a Jupiter to Deland & back trip Tue & Wed on I-95. I had maybe 20% visibility out of my windshield by the time I got to Deland. Immediately went to a car wash. On the trip home, not as bad but still bad. A timely downpour & traffic jam saved me from another car wash back in Jupiter. 🙂 They seemed the worst from Vero to northern Titusville area.
  3. We were on the Nav 3/29-4/7/19. Wonderful 9-day ABC cruise. The ship is really nice. So colorful. Pros: ABCs- too many great things to say about these islands. Bonaire: amazing!! Lime & Coconut, especially 12th & 13th decks. El Loco Fresh - great idea. The entire fleet needs to add. Bamboo Room - best drinks, wish it had some water views. Hooked - great add RCCL! Andy Cruickshank(?) in Schooners Playmakers burgers & wings Cons: Running 'track' on deck 12 - might as well remove it. Way too tight, with obstructions everywhere. I used Deck 4. Started outside from Starbucks, starboard side. I crossed to port side, using the forward elevator area. GPS was flaky but the loop is somewhere around .28 miles. FYI: Smoking area is on the port side of deck 4 so if that is a big issue..... Johnny Rockets Express - no reason anymore. It was always empty. Tough to find a 'quiet area' to get sun, read, nap, etc. Ended up forward, near mini golf. The ship is overloaded with stuff to do. Definitely designed for the shorty cruises it will start to focus on in May. 'Tokyo Tea' cocktail - for those who know what this is...stay away! Stay very far away!!! 🙂 Overall, it was a fantastic time! Back to the Oasis class in 2020. 🙂
  4. Thanks for doing this. On Nav in 11 days! One of your pix shows a lower deck, with what looks like the muster signs hanging from the ceiling. Is that Deck 4? I heard that is a good alternative to the top deck track to get a run in. If it is, that looks perfect!
  5. UGH! My bad. Platinum on Day 1. Not the first time I have gotten that wrong.
  6. Hi EmilyJay, so how is the old Viking Lounge broken up? We are Gold level (turn Emerald on Day 1)but we loved the VL when we were last on this class of ship. Roughly how many seats are in what is left of the VL for less than Diamond or non-suite cruisers? Thanks!
  7. That is what I wanted to hear! :) i am not picky about where I have to run, just as long as I can get a few in while I am away. The flight of stairs is a nice little boost too. Thanks so much for this info. 27 days......
  8. That's what it looked like. 😞 Oh well. This new design is not done with 9 day cruises in mind. It was for the short ones Nav will eventually do. Thanks for the quick reply.
  9. Hi EmilyJay, I saw a 'scope from the Nav last night. The 'running track' looks like it is half the width of what is normal. Please let me know what you think.
  10. Following. Thanks for doing this. We are on Nav 4 weeks later. 🙂 My first question is based on the pix of Nav that I saw this morning. With all the 'stuff' that's on the top decks, where are all the deck chairs going to fit??
