Just wanted to mention that I've been on the Escape this week and the thermal suite hasn't been overcrowded. At about 1 this afternoon, I was literally the only person in there for a while. Even on...
A quick note on elevator bullies
OP here.

1) Sorry, forgot bully is now a politicized term. How about "entitled *******es"?

2) I had, in the first 24 hours, experienced more elevator rudeness than I had on any cruise...

Life is too short to engage in a level of pacifism that allows people to trap me in small rooms against my will.

Your mileage, obviously, may vary.
A quick note on elevator bullies
The people who will shove their large group into an overcrowded elevator, so that everyone is pressed up against each other, are the same people who will absolutely refuse to step off the elevator at...

Platinum finally giving up on NCL
Exactly this.

It's like people are defending their favorite sports team, and heaven forbid you have a *real* problem where the cruise line screwed up, because posters here will bend over backwards...

Hrm. I've been on the -away ships four times in the last three years, and never been unable to access my room past about 2. Not saying it couldn't happen, and I know this board is often all about...

Breakaway, Escape (bigger than GA), Epic (smaller than GA, I assume). I don't know about the two new ships (Bliss and Encore).

Escape is my favorite so far.

Having been on Oasis recently and was really struck by how bad the buffet was (with extremely limited hours), I have to ask ... was the buffet on RC's megaships ever truly 'good'?

Unless something has changed in the last year or so since I've discussed this, RCI has access to more satellite bandwidth than NCL, and that's a finite resource until more satellites are launched and...

Since you don't seem to have seen my post, you can make reservations online for the MDR before your cruise.

Really, though, you don't sound like you really don't want to be on NCL due to...

Has anyone done this recently on Escape? For some reason I thought it wasn't allowed.
Thinking of Trying Norwegian.. Questions
You can speak with the maitre d and request the same time/table each night.

I believe you can book MDR times online ahead of time.

Edit: yep, my cruise next week offers to let me book MDR...
Studio Rooms on the Escape
Early December is always cheap, and that season was dealing with the fallout of all the hurricanes.

I booked a studio on Escape a few weeks ago for next week. The remaining studios are already...

Agree. I feel like in typical Studios I could grab something from the desk without getting off the bed.

Well, let me try to sincerely remember what was better on Oasis. (Hopefully you're not as reliant on the buffet when traveling solo as I am, because there is very little good I can remember about...

I've used SAS and Jiffy Jeff a number of times, and I'm also pretty casual about booking early flights. However, I'd be careful here.

1) The shuttle won't leave until it's full.

2) The shuttle...

I'll be the voice of dissent: I've been in port and had my phone connect to the ship's cell tower, not the local carriers. People are going to say it doesn't happen, but if you have a cellular at sea...

There is seating and food options outside of security at baggage claim in FLL.

No lobster, but watch for the complimentary prime rib instead.

(I'm sure it'll be gone too, soon enough.)

You're talking to someone whose first complimentary meal on a cruise ship was Flamingo Grill (which I LOVED), only to see that get demolished in a few short years to become a pay venue. :)

NCL bumped up their base fares to cover the "free" perks too. That's why some TAs can offer "no frills" pricing, and why there are cheaper "sail-away" rates that don't include the "free" perks.

So...

Aw, does this mean the crepes are coming off the buffet and going "pay for play"? If so I suppose that means the other ships will follow suit. :/
