  1. Thank you @mwhite991, good to know! I imagine it will be the same on sister ships like Lirica.
  2. Were there any free steam or sauna areas available on the ship, perhaps near the showers?
  3. Except they did change the 11/24 Meraviglia sailing, if this is the final version of the itinerary.

  4. Does anyone happen to know whether there are any free sauna/steam rooms on MSC Lirica or MSC Orchestra? It appears they both have MSC Aurea Spa after the refurbs, but some deck plans show 2 saunas in different locations - are any of these possibly attached to the lockers/showers and free? Lirica is sister ship to Armonia, Sinfonia, and Opera, and Orchestra is sister to Musica, Poesia, and Magnifica - any information about any of these ships would be appreciated!
  5. I am on Nov 24 Meraviglia sailing as well - looking forward to meeting you and everyone else. I spoke with MSC last night, and they (Ft. Lauderdale) said that there will be $50 onboard credit and 20% voucher for this sailing. She said that no itinerary changes have been posted yet that she can see, and right now it is just showing as cancellation/sea day. IMO it will probably be replaced with Nassau, same as Seaside. Hopefully no itinerary changes for us, I don't want to use up all my All-In wi-fi to reshuffle all our private excursions.
  6. I don't have the answers for the OP yet, but we will be on the Meraviglia in less than 2 weeks for Thanksgiving, and I can try to get some answers to these (or any other questions anyone can think of before then) when we are onboard. I do have a question myself though before our trip, if anyone would be so kind to share - what MDR(s) have 2-top tables and what would be the best locations for these, in case we are lucky to be able to switch to one of them? (I should have asked @nikkiw60 while she was there, but I guess I got distracted following her and Bea's travels - thank you both for sharing!)
  7. Oh no! I hope they offer you a nice replacement for the last sea day. 🤣 What is the champagne offered on ... Easy package I am guessing? Also - is there a TV channel with an outside cam view at all, or are those who have inside cabins doomed to never know what time it is when they wake up?
  8. Are there web cams on Meraviglia like on the other MSC ships? I wanted to spy on her but unable to find her webcams anywhere.
  9. Thank you @nikkiw60! Did you get a chance to enjoy the tables with a view at the back of the buffet yet?
  10. Do the buffet bars have cappuccino or specialty coffee/chocolate drinks available for breakfast? Or is this only available in the liqour bars elsewhere?
  11. Please forgive my ignorance - but is there a way to zoom in on the menus and dailies? When I do so, the image is just too blurry to read. Is it me or is it just the images? I understand that Nikki does not want to use up all their data while posting these live, so I am by no means complaining - just curious whether or not I am perhaps missing something. Enjoying your live report very much Nikki! 3 weeks until our cruise on her. 🛳️
  12. Are there any public locations aft by the staircases where you can hang out and watch the back of the ship? I understand that there is the top public deck and the back of the buffet is sort of open, but can you hang out in the back on other (cabin?) decks?
  13. Thank you @smile145 and @CruisinMaterial for the detailed info and the tips. Hope you are enjoying your cruise, the weather is nice and warm down here in Florida, so you will have some sunny times to enjoy soon! 🌞 How was the Boston stop?
  14. Aww no food in Sports Bar? We enjoyed having the option of (free!) bar snacks on Divina. So I see that no food is served in the Sports Bar on Mera, and limited pay-for offerings in the Pub. Are there wings available anywhere on the ship? Is any pay-for food offered in the Pub worth the upcharge, or is it the same burgers and stuff as the buffet and you pay for the privilege of not making the hike there? Also on the subject of (free) snacks - are there finger foods or snacks available in any bars/lounges, or is it only MDR/Buffet? On Divina, there were light snacks you could get at the wine bar (La Cantina Di Bacco), and Piazza Del Doge almost always had sandwiches and some nice cakes available. Anything like this in the wine bar/sky lounge/anywhere else on the ship? We are getting on Mera for Thanksgiving this year (Martha Stewart Thanksgiving dinner apparently will be available, not that I will be interested unless she gets reaaaaally creative...), and we have a Cirque dinner included with our booking. Isthere more than one time available for Cirque dinner daily? I believe there are 2 cocktail shows but only 1 dinner? Having seen the dinner reviews, not impressed and would rather have dinner elsewhere, wonder if they will trade for a cocktail show instead.
  15. Does the Sports Bar on the Seaside (assuming there is one) offer free snacks? We were on the Divina last year and found a lot of the (free) food offerings in the Sports Bar quite good - much better than NCL's Blue Lagoon.
