  1. Yes that was funny. Not sure if you remember asst cruise director Sinan “Bingo Boy”. He was so funny
  2. My husband and I will be on the Oasis in September. Our first cruise on Royal. My husband is highly allergic to nuts. What do I need to do. Is there something to fill out
  3. My husband and I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary in September and we decided to do a cruise on Royal which is our first cruise with Royal, Oasis. I am so excited, the ship looks amazing. We are platinum on NCL. We were told that we will never go back to NCL after this cruise what are the complimentary restaurants and which are the pay ones. Is there a specialty restaurant that you can recommend for our anniversary my husband has a severe nut allergy. Who do we contact re this any tips that you can share going on the NCL Encore in May and very disappointed that they got rid of the adult section Spice H2O. Saw The Solarium on Royal in a few pictures and said “wow”. How beautiful. Can’t wait are there any good bands. We love rock and roll
  4. How is the entertainment? going to miss Spice H20. So where do you go. Not going purchase the Vibe
  5. What is the priority access program. I guess I missed what it was. We will be on the Encore in May.
  6. We were on the Escape and they automatically gave you a paper straw. Didn’t have to ask and the straws were fine
  7. About 6-7 years ago the Gem or Dawn did do prizes. It was held in Spinnaker lounge. They gave you a raffle ticket as you entered for the Latitudes reception. I actually won a piece if blown glass from Bermuda and my son won a bottle of wine. They did it for a few years and then it stopped. And yes the officers make a quick appearance and disappear.
  8. My husband and I ate at Cagneys twice and we got the shrimp cocktail and that was something like $5.99 extra but it was real good
  9. We were on the same cruise. And yes the first few days were cold , windy and rainy. The cruise director should have had more things to do. We never saw the cruise director. Prior cruises the CD was always visible. Past cruises we had Bingo Boy “Sinan”, Julie, and John during the cruise we talked to many people and not one person enjoyed the cruise and these were various ages. There wasn’t enough entertainment. Or you would go to a bar to have a drink and there was always a private function. they put Dennis Veator who played guitar in Tobacco Road. You could not hear him as you had the people at the bar talking, had people going in and out the waterfront door and you had people walking on the aisle. He played in the brewhouse and you heard him much better no music by the pool nor Spice H2O we heard from a family that 3 ropes on the rope course were broken and there wasn’t enough water going down the water slide and people were getting stuck 2 of the elevators were not working properly other than all of that, the crew was outstanding. Food was very good. Did 5 specialty restaurants and they were yummy. This is our 15th cruise with NCL and was disappointed with the Escape Embarkation was was a breeze but debarkation was mass confusion. i am glad that the Escape is not going out of NY next year. Looking forward to sailing on the new ship
  10. You can try the waterfront or margaritaville It is covered but you can still go outside if stops raining. It is on the Statue of Liberty side
  11. From the time the ship leaves the dock to the bridge, it takes 1 hour
  12. Thank you for the information. Leaving this Sunday with my family and we are counting the hours
  13. Where do you have to go to book Choir of Man on the Escape and that needs to be done when you board?
  14. Does anyone know if the bartender at the Skyline Bar on the Escape is Jim. We have known him from other NCL ships and he was great. A friend of ours went in November and said he was on the Escape.
