  1. We just took our first TA this past April (NCL Epic from Port Canaveral to Barcelona) and will never go back to Caribbean cruises, lol! We love the sea days and the pace of a TA! Living in FL, we get enough beaches, but traveling to Europe and those sea days are what make us prefer TAs. May I make some suggestions for Barcelona: we traveled to Montserrat and loved it. Gorgeous views and lovely to walk around. We did not have time for a cava tour, but on our next TA (April, 2021 on the NCL Epic from San Juan), we plan on taking the train from Barcelona to the Frexinet company for a cava tour. During our time in Barcelona this past April, we also booked tickets online to Sagrada Familia and Park Guell to enjoy the Gaudi architecture. The Picasso Museum was unfortunately closed on Mondays, which was our free day, so we will also try to work that in during our next trip. We also enjoyed the Gothic quarter and exploring the quaint old town. We loved Barcelona and are looking forward to spending more time there. We found the wine to be very reasonably priced...any city with good glasses of vino for 3.50 Euros is a winner in my book!!
  2. I love this post. I have been on Keto for a little over 3 years and have maintained a 80 lb. weight loss. I love the Keto lifestyle. We did a TA in April and I was very intentional about my food, trying to stay as Keto as possible (but did indulge in some desserts). I gained a bit after the cruise (7 lbs after 15 nights), but took it off very soon after returning home. I feel so much better with eating Keto and would never go back to carb filled meals.
  3. The photos are gorgeous. From reading the trip report in which you got engaged to seeing this beautiful wedding, it has been an absolute pleasure to follow in your travels! I hope you continue to do trip reports! Congratulations to you and your husband and best wishes for a long and joyous marriage!!
  4. We upgraded from an inside to a balcony guarantee on the Epic on a TA sailing this past April from Port Canaveral to Barcelona and ended up in 14034, which is on the hump, and thus a larger balcony. Two loungers could have easily fit on the balcony and I'm upset I didn't think to ask the room steward to bring us lounge chairs.In this photo, it's hard to see how large the balcony is, but it was wonderful! We are doing a TA again on the Epic in 2021 and were so sad that "our" cabin was already booked. We took the balcony next door, which is also on the hump, but not as large a hump so the balcony is not as deep.
  5. We gave up waiting for a TA in 2021 to be listed from FL and booked the Epic out of San Juan sailing in April, 2021. That was before NCL discontinued the discounted air. We sailed Epic this past April on a TA out of Port Canaveral and loved the one hour drive to port (we live in Orlando). Hoping more TAs sail from FL!
  6. Enjoy. We did a TA in April on Epic and loved Howl at the Moon. As others have mentioned, there are videos on YouTube with cabin tours so you could look to see what the closet doors look like. We had no issue with our plastic shoe organizer. The room steward even commented on what a good idea it was. I also brought magnetic hooks from amazon to hang hats and swimsuits from.
  7. I used a plastic shoe holder just like the one in your photo on the Epic closet door. We hung it on the outside of the door and it worked fine. We were in a balcony cabin, but I assume the doors are the same on the inside. I don't think it would work on the bathroom door. We had a stool by the vanity table, not sure if that is provided on inside cabins. Enjoy the cruise! We loved Epic. Be sure to go to Howl at the Moon!
  8. Make that a third! Will not upgrade the beverage package if it no longer includes Veuve!!!
  9. Read something about Sweet Caroline....not exactly a great endorsement! Wonder why no Howl at the Moon? Did a TA on the Epic for 15 nights and don't think we were subjected to Sweet Caroline one time! šŸ™‚
  10. Will really miss Howl at the Moon. How is the piano guy? I see on the daily he plays in the District Brewhouse.
  11. We booked a TA a week ago today with the free air promotion and our travel agent indicated that she had heard from NCL reps the it would be discontinued soon, as they could not keep up with demand.
