    Concierge level on Joy

    I am looking at the Joy for Alaska next year. I was wondering how the concierge suites vary from the Haven with regard to private dining. Does anyone know? Also, are there other perks other than the concierge? I am a little confused by this class of service and the NCL website doesn't really provide much information.
  2. Does anybody have any idea when NCL will let it be known who or what will be the headline entertainment act on the Joy when it sails Alaska next year?

    Info on Joy

    The floor plans are not showing up for the Joy. My son and family with Mother-in-law are wanting to join a 4 couple group that is in Haven 6. They were told by a TA that the H 6 has a separate bedroom. If by separate, they mean the main bedroom has a door instead of a curtain, for privacy, I'd love to confirm if anyone knows. I read on these boards that the Joy would closely resemble the cabins on the Bliss. Can anyone confirm this info or tell me where I can find it? NCL doesn't like to tell much when you use a TA, which I understand. Thanks for any advice. BTW it looks like there was a price drop today for the Joy.

    Bliss vs Joy

    Are there going to be differences, or essentially the exact same? We just did the Bliss and it was wonderful, however we are doing our first Alaskan cruise this summer and are considering the Joy as an option. I just didnt feel like the Bliss (assuming Joy is identical) offered any options specific for Alaska such as enclosed pools, many hot tubs etc. I read the Joy will undergo some upgrades, but dont know exactly what those are. Any insight?

    Bliss or Joy for Alaska?

    we've sailed both the Glacier Bay route and the Sawyer Glacier route. Joy itinerary includes Icy Straight Point and its a Saturday to Saturday sail vs. Sunday to Sunday which is a huge plus for us. any major differences between the ships, service, shows, etc?

    bliss and or joy

    will be going to Alaska on one of these, just wanted to know coming from carnival in the past, do these boats have comedians and shows, and most important do they have the bingo games and if not what do they have , besides the slide and go carts things for kids im talking more for adults. also carnival has like guys burgers and pizza shops and such that are free dinning other then dining rooms does ncl have this types and again if so what. thanks for your help
  7. With the Joy being renovated to look more like the Bliss, how likely is it that the Joy will also get a Broadway type musical? I thought I read something that suggested it might not be feasible as the theatre on the Joy is much smaller than the Bliss.

    bliss vs joy alaska

    I understand they are sister ships, but when I look at the ships and whats on them it looks like the bliss have more of the non free food places to eat. Is this true? or will joy be getting a makeover before she sets up for Alaska to get the same stuff. And what about free food options I'm from carnival so not to familiar with ncl, is there more to eat other then the main dinning room and buffets, like carnival has blue laguna pizza shops delis guys burger kinda places? Don't really see any on line? Please help
  9. Just wondering if anyone knows if Joy has a video arcade? It is not on the deck plan now but wonder if it will be added during the de-Chinese refurbish around Apr 2019. Last time I was on Bliss and bought the arcade package for my kids and they loved it, but it will be a bummer if Joy doesn't even have an arcade 😞
  10. Concierge Family Inside It says inside but photos do have window in sitting area, looks like no balcony as well What is "concierge cabins" what comes with it
  11. I have a question. About a Week ago I logged in my Cruise Planner, and there were about 70+ Shore Excursions listed. I was able to book the ones we wanted. Now onto Today. I logged back in and there are only 8 Excursions listed the ones we booked are no longer listed. They do show as being booked when I look at my ports. Now on to my question/concern. What happened to the other 60+, Sold out, canceled? Is this normal?

    Booked Norwegian Joy

    Just booked Norwegian Joy and i am hoping it was a good idea..The Joy is currently in China,who knew, obviously not me, she is due for a refurbish on its return to USA in April. We sail Aug, 31 so hopefully all the kinks should be worked out. We returned from a Rome cruise on the Epic and it was spectacular. If anyone hears any news on the Joy i would appreciate a shout out. Enjoy life.

    NCL JOY Menu

    Just booked the Joy for Alaskan cruise in June. Does anyone know have the menu for the American Diner? Looked at NCL JOY posting (supposedly) pretty much nothing there but other ships. Sure don't like this new format on CC

    Thermal Spa on Joy?

    Just off the Escape and absolutely loved the Thermal Spa. Does the Mandara Spa on Joy have a thermal spa like Escape? If not, is there a basic steam room/sauna available onboard? Thanks!

    Alaska NCL Joy

    We are looking to travel next May to Alaska on the Joy. My question is this, is there an advantage to having an aft balcony when traveling to Alaska? Thank you in advance for your help!!
  19. Looking at the Joy or the Bliss from Seattle for the Alaska inside passage...Have plenty of time, not until June 2020, but they are already booking..going to be celebrating 60th birthday! Looks like slightly different itineraries...Does anyone know what the Broadway show is going to be on the Joy by chance? So anyway any thoughts on which ship? :confused:

    NCL Joy suggestions, opinions

    I'm sorry, I tried to do a search and I am just not finding what I am looking for. Thinking about taking the Joy next year in Alaska. I have sailed RCCL many times, and have not been on NCL since 1994. I am looking for pros and cons, what you liked the best, hidden gems, etc on the Joy. I am comparing this to the RCL Ovation and don't know which to choose. The Joy looks awfully intriguing but when you're used to one line for so many years, it's hard to make that switch. With that being said though, I have been dying to try some of NCL's newer ships. Was hoping this one had the Margaritaville, but don't need to go on a cruise for that. LOL Thank you in advance for all your help. BTW, we are senior aged, old. lol
  21. Hi all, We just booked the JOY for September 14, 2019 for us and our daughter and son-in-law as their Anniversary gift. Anyone else on this cruise yet?

    Norwegian Joy

    Any news as to when the Norwegian Joy will be "freed" from the exclusive Chinese market? I heard that it is a beautiful ship.
