  1. Agreed that the top deck looks a bit like the encore in that there’s not much free deck space. Was hoping that the go-karts were just a rumor. But everyone needs to remember that NCL is a mass market line that caters to families and not just those looking for a more upscale experience, they’re trying to appease the majority of the general public. Hopefully the ocean Blvd is NCL’s version of the sanctuary / solarium you find on on Carnvial and Royal?
  2. Is the architect Tillberg of Sweeden? I know they do a lot of work with NCL. and yeah, this def looks like the “fence” on the other picture
  3. What room category on Prima has the in-room hot tub? Is it just Haven and what category? I can’t keep track 🙂
  4. I just tried to log into my latitudes account and it said my credentials were wrong. I had to click on forgot password and it emailed me with a weird user name and password reset link. I was able to get into my account but my profile was showing as first time cruiser with no history - so clearly there is a glitch. has anyone else had this problem recently?
  5. So, what do we not currently know as of yet? Food: - Is there a main dining room? - Is there a buffet or is the Indulge Food Hall taking its place? - Is there a casual walk up style food offering near the pools (I suspect The Local or Food Hall) - Will The Local be 24 hours like on other ships? - Will there be other specialty restaurants besides Onda and Los Lobos? (i.e. Le Bistro, Cagney's). Ocean Boulevard: - Are the infinity pools on both sides of the ship adults only, aka the new Spice H20? or are they an extra charge, aka the new Vibe? - Is the Indulge Outdoor Lounge open to everyone or does require an extra charge? Top Deck: - will there be the rumored go-kart track around the funnel? - will there be a "main pool" in the traditional sense? - what else is going up there? Entertainment: - we know nothing! 🙂 what else did I forget?
  6. looks like a firepit in the first screengrab...that'd be cool...i bet it's only for Haven guests! ha
  7. YES! Especially when you have Royal, Disney and Celebrity all revealing detials about their new ships, within days of one another....Disney had a very glitz and well produced "virtual" unveiling / tour of their new Disney Magic ship today (coincidentally being built at Meyer Werft, which has built mostly all of the current NCL fleet) At first I thought NCL was being sensitive with COVID and not wanting to "promote" a new ship, but clearly there must be other reasons, if multiple other cruise lines aren't stopping...
  8. does the Premium Plus package include Starbucks drinks? or just the fancy coffees/related drinks at the regular bars?
  9. bummer, but really not surprised at all...I bet they push it back to June, my prediction
  10. That name is surely a departure from all the other ship names. I bet this is part of FDR's strategy of "upgrading" the public's perception of NCL and therefore can justify the higher prices across the board. Personally, I am not a fan. It makes me think of an Italian cruise line like Costa or the AIDA ships. But, any news is good news I guess, at this point
  11. Given today's announcement about cruises from the Caribbean and Greece, do you think NCL will reveal anything about Leo anytime soon?
  12. I don't see the Encore mentioned, could they be saving another "surprise" itinerary for her, or was it a simple mistake in leaving her off the list?
  13. i would agree, under normal circumstances, we'd most certainly would've heard a lot more by now...however, I think NCL is waiting until the last possible moment to make any announcements given everything else going on, so as to not appear insensitive or whatever...aka they don't want "bad" PR
  14. what Fincantieri ship yard are they building the Leo's in? Venice?
  15. when is Leo 1 scheduled to be completed in 2022, summer or fall?
  16. I don't think we will hear much about Leo 1 for several weeks, if not months, due to the new administration and the obvious focus on the vaccine and getting the existing ships back into service. I am super excited about this ship and will likely book her - so I want to know all the details, too! I just think we're going to have a wait longer than expected/hoped. Hopefully I am wrong!
  17. The Sky is a highly profitable ship for them, I know it's the oldest next to the Spirit, but I'd be surprised. I'd bet the Star would be the one to go given it's had tons of problems over the years. But who knows.
  18. There are rumors that NCL was going to build a pier and add some more attractions (slides, lazy river, etc.) but that was pre-COVID, so not sure if any new upgrades will actually happen, likely not for several years at this point. "NCL is embarking on design and construction of Phase III at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. Facilities include a new pier which can accommodate two passenger ships simultaneously, water attractions, pools, a lazy river and new beaches. A new Bahamian Village will be constructed with food and beverage venues for guests as well as dormitories for service staff along with supporting infrastructure for water, sewer, and power systems."

  19. Was just googling about and came across this description of future GSC improvements from the construction company that did the previous improvements at GSC and is currently buidling the new terminal in Miami. I wonder if COVID has cancelled any of these plans and what may be actually coming: "NCL is embarking on design and construction of Phase III at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. Facilities include a new pier which can accommodate two passenger ships simultaneously, water attractions, pools, a lazy river and new beaches. A new Bahamian Village will be constructed with food and beverage venues for guests as well as dormitories for service staff along with supporting infrastructure for water, sewer, and power systems."
  20. exciting and hopefully it's somewhat revealing given everything else going on in the world...is "inside cruiser" another website or forum? I'd like to check it out if possible.
  21. Norwegian will survive, they've got enough cash to last them the next 16+ months or so without any revenue...unless Carnival or MSC or RC buy them out....unlikely given the market realities
  22. I am scheduled to be in St. Thomas on Thursday, 2/18/21 from 10am to 7pm via the NCL Bliss. Looks like the next available ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay isn't until 12noon. Is that too late to truly enjoy Trunk Bay? Would I be better off doing a ship excursion?
  23. Scheduled to visit this new port/dock via the NCL Bliss in February 2021. I had read that there was going to be a water park of some kind with slides/lazy river, etc. Is that still happening? Looks like a popular excursion in the general area are the waterfalls? Also heard something about a cable car that goes to the top of a mountain?
