  1. I'm so sorry I didn't see your question. I hope its not to late but I did see a couple $5.00 machines.
  2. We are on the Encore now and you can go on and listen to the music and have drinks for free they will tell you where you can sit. It's a pretty cool venue, nicely decorated and comfortable. Live music is from 8:30pm nightly from what I've noticed. Beautiful ship with a great crew!
  3. We received the e-mail yesterday for our 1/19/19 Encore sailing and even though I like GSC, I love having the last day of the cruise be a sea day. I specifically try to book cruises that don't stop in the Bahamas for this reason. I won't let it bother me though still planning on having a great time as always.
  4. Great review as always Doug, thanks so much for taking the time to share. We will be on the Encore on January 19th celebrating my Dad's 87th birthday. The Escape is also our favorite ship and I look forward to enjoying the Encore. Thanks again!
  5. Interesting article. I know they work very hard and a lot of hours however they do make decent money for the cost of living in their home country. I have had many conversations with different crew members about their life outside work and they all have a good life, nice homes, take vacations, many who have children have them in good private schools and all have smart phones and nice clothes. We can't compare the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe income to most crew members home countries. There is no denying they work hard and more hours than many Americans but they do make a good living.
  6. We have sailed the Epic twice, not a fan of the ship and will not sail her again. We all disliked the layout and the staff on both cruises we not the friendliest for the most part. That said did we enjoy both cruises? Yes we did. Did we enjoy the other NCL ships we have been on more? Yes we did. Everyone has their individual preference on the ships they like the most. Give the Epic a try, you may love her. if you don't I bet you still have a great cruise.
