  1. Thanks Alpmac - I'll keep those in mind. That water looks sooooo inviting!!!!! At least our snow here in Pittsburgh is melting. But no cruises booked 😞
  2. I recommend Accra Beach. It's a short taxi ride and you can make arrangements for them to pick you up at a specific time. My sisters and I love the waves there. There is do drop off when you get in the water and you walk out and then you have to get past a few waves and then jump thru them. We just love that beach!!!!! You can rent chairs and umbrellas and there are a lot of food choices.

    ACCRA BEACH

    My sisters and I are not spring chickens but we LOVE jumping thru the big waves at Accra beach. If we cannot cruise again anytime soon and don't want to stay right there, are there beaches/resorts with big lovely waves for us to jump thru maybe an all inclusive so we don't have to leave? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are struggling thru PA winter and missed our yearly 14 day cruise and it's sooooo hard.
  4. We had a forward facing Haven on the Breakaway a few years ago and it was close to the crew deck and we heard a lot of noise from them late at night and had to call to complain a couple times.
  5. I just checked and I have to offer but not ready to book anything yet. The only cruise I'm looking at isn't until end of February 2023 so don't want to tie up money yet.
  6. Originally the CDC wanted the no sail order extended to February 15, 2021 until the White House got involved. So I have no faith in the CDC at this point. I'll wait until there is a safe and effective vaccine and no masks are required anywhere anymore. To each his own.
  7. We have a 2 bedroom Haven suite booked for myself, 2 sisters and their husbands. All sailings canceled thru end of September and our final payment is due the end of September. Pretty sure we are going to cancel and hope our TA will give us a voucher for the $100 deposit but no big deal. Don't know what happens to the travel insurance I bought thru insuremytrip. Also have air booked to Miami for 3 of us. We are booked on Encore 2-1-21. The prices for 2022 are not exactly the same itinerary so either or little shorter or a little longer and $10,000 MORE. Our final deposit is huge so as mu
  8. Living in Pittsburgh, I hear yinz a lot and I HATE it. I am not a yinzer at all. And yous. What? And love my Canadian cruisers. Staying pre cruise you can always tell the gang of people laughing and having too much fun are Canadians!! Love it.
  9. We DID love it on the Bliss this pas January. Got home right as covid was becoming known. We sailed out of NY so had some cooler weather on the way back and the view is amazing. IF we get to go on planned January cruise on Encore that might be where I want to be for the canal.
  10. I can't wait to check the port cam some Saturday and watch the ships heading out to sea.
  11. We've stayed in 3 Haven suites outside the Haven area and are booked in the Haven area on the Encore for January (hopefully). Now that they have the Horizon Lounge it someplace we would want to spend more time. And the walk from the Aft was getting old.
  12. They NY winter cruises are usually 14 days. Our January Encore is 12 days into the Panama canal and out again I read there may be changes so we'll roll with the punches. A lot of the people we were on the Bliss with out of NY last January were going on this Encore one because only the Gem was scheduled to sail out of NY.
  13. We will be driving past Norfolk in a few weeks and I will drive especially slow to try to get a look at Encore. We're suppose to sail end of January but who knows what will happen by then.
  14. We're hoping to be on the Encore end of January but every day that goes buy, the less I think it will happen. Wish they would change the winter sailings to sail out of NY and go east/south. Hope NCL is listening.
  15. Another vote for the 2 bedroom. My sisters and I have had a forward facing Haven (which had an AMAZING shower!!!) and the last 2 cruises we had aft Havens. The balcony is great and we used it a lot on the first aft cruise but not so much on the last one and now we are booked in a 2 bedroom for February - fingers crossed.
