  1. Ok, Bird. Enjoying the review. Is there any tutorial about putting pics into a review or videos. Thanks Don
  2. That was my thinking also, if this virus continues. But what is weird is they have the Bliss scheduled for a PC cruise this fall on the NCL website. Thanks Don
  3. Hi Mr Bird, Really, really, enjoying your reviews. I think I need to figure out the media thing and do a review. We are booked for the Repositioning cruise from Miami back to Seattle in Apr 2022 on the Encore. The burning question is when does the Encore go to Miami at the end of 2021? WE can not find any cruise for that. Going without paying passengers? Maybe you can milk some info from the staff. Great review love the pictures. Thank you for your time. Don
  4. Hello Everybody, We booked the PC cruise from Miami Apr 2022 on Encore probably a year ago. Since then a couple of months later just to keep track, I was trying to also figure it out. I kind of thought that the Bliss switch would happen. Unless they are doing a upkeep during the PC to Miami on The Encore. When will the news be released?
  5. Marriott Airport Miami. Shuttle from airport, and from hotel to port.
  6. We have a Panama cruise scheduled for Apr 17th from Miami to Seattle on the Encore. You could be right, I do not see a repo cruise from Seattle back to Miami after the Alaska season is over. Just have to wait.
  7. Same here, prior to Oct 6. ? Some kind of legal wording or just a mistake?
  8. Thank You. Hopefully I can put this trip together.
  9. We are thinking about a cruise that ends up in Southampton. Then going to Cardiff area to see distant relatives. GWR seems to be the way to go, even around other areas. To John Bull the idea of home base being Southampton sounds great. Luggage becomes a issue. Ship some home? Plan on Southampton to Cardiff spend 4 days then to Heathrow (train). Better exchange rates in UK or USA? Everybody stay safe.
  10. I would stay in the Marriott. Stayed there before not for a cruise but other reasons. Pier 66 is right across the street and Anthony's Seafood restaurant right there also. The Wheel is just south on Pier 57 with eatery places to. Be careful going another places.
  11. Heineken zero point zero is really good. Though the amount in bottles and cans are smaller 11.2oz. That must be a European thing. 7 bucks a bottle is a little high. You can get a 6 pack bottles at Wal mart for 9 dollars. Do these count as part of the beverage package? Hopefully cruising in Oct 2021.
  12. We had the Encore cruise on April 10th. Decided to cancel/shift to a cruise on the Encore. Leaves Seattle 23 October 2022. Easier for us. Do not have to fly to and from a port. Just from Miami. I did not want to be constrained by the FCC rules. Just have to wait.
  13. Just saved 200 bucks on the new 30% sale. Note: The new 30% off does not include Free Gratuities. Would of saved more if it was included.
  14. I would think they would push it out a year from your cancellation or cruise date.
  15. Be careful with the 10th deck aft, look above on 11th deck. Noise early morning from Aloha cafe. Moving chairs and tables. Deck 8 would be best.
  16. Booked for the Panama Canal Apr 10th on the Encore with a M9 category (spa club balcony). If no Spa maybe a Vibe pass for the entire cruise? But can you use the hot tub? They almost have to give you something if no spa. Photo from Cabo jeep excursion.
  17. Same for me, April 10 Panama cruise on Encore we have a M9 Club balcony Spa (or whatever its called), If no Spa what do they do for compensation?
  18. To: Red wing fan. Yes Mt Rainier. What boat? The Tridents all look alike. I was stationed on USS Florida and USS Henry M Jackson, along with USS Queenfish and USS Silversides.
  19. Anxiously waiting your review. And we are anxiously waiting for our cruise on the Encore coast to coast Miami to LA Apr 2021, Spa mini suite. Just debating a Vibe pass or not. Yeah...
  20. Great question. If you cruise with NCL, fly to and from Oahu or other island's. With NCL no customs, no need for passport, no foreign port visits. Explore airfares thru Seattle, Portland and LAX or non stop to HLN. We have done the POA twice 2-3 years apart. Still thinking about a 3rd time. The only bad thing is the rental car situation, cars being away from the port, just a little planning takes care of that. The sea days from Vancouver are 5 days to get to Hawaii, sometimes nice seas, sometimes not. Have fun.
  21. There is also a nice Navy Lodge in San Diego, next to the naval station real easy to get to using all rail transport.
  22. Thank you. We might not get off at a few ports only to walk around at the tourist shops by the pier. Kind of excited, waiting for more info on the Encore. Thank you once again.
  23. Nice review to the point. The question I have is the Vibe pass $200 for your 7 day trip, and can you git them at different areas? We have booked a Panama Canal cruise Miami to LA on the Encore with a spa mini suite in Apr 2021. The other question is getting a Vibe and having a spa pass worth it? Thank you for your review.

  24. Hello everybody, Interesting topic. Booked Panama canal on Encore for Apr 2021 for 2, mostly because of free air. We live in Seattle area. I know its a way out for time. Free air would be from Seattle to Miami then LA to Seattle. We have chosen to arrive at Miami a day early no transfers. Then transfers from LA to Seattle same day. My question is can you upgrade to Business or first class with paying the difference (Seattle to Miami), anybody done this? Looking forward to this cruise.
