Hi Eroller! I did not know this will be adult only.....that is a surprise. So far I have only seen the bow rendering, are there any stern drawings out there?
As this maiden voyage is for a new line....I will be on her regardless of her itinerary. I am wondering if there will be single outside cabins like on the Celebrity Edge. If lines continue to add outside single cabins, NCL will have to consider doing the same on the Leonardo class. Speaking of Leonardo......that's another must do. I hope she sails out of Venice for her maiden voyage.....how cool would it be to fly to London, take the Orient Simplon Express to Venice and then board the Leonardo class ship....ca-Ching !
As for the signup list for VV.....can't believe how fast it's growing, wonder if there will be a cutoff or just let it roll and cash in.
See ya onboard. PS....and good info on the Costa Smeralda?
The adult-only is the very best part! Think how nice the pools and open decks will be, without being overrun with kids. Like Vibe on NCL or Serenity on Princess but the whole deck, and without having to pay extra!
I bet there will be single cabins. That makes a lot of sense on a ship catering to adults. I bet inside and outside cabins, even balcony cabins. A large percentage of cabins will have balconies, I think 86% is what was said.
I'm also booked on EDGE. Can't wait for that one and I love Celebrity. I'm more hesitant with NCL. I'm sure I'll sail on the Leonardo Class but I'm sort of over NCL for the time being. There are just better lines for me. My last cruise was on HARMONY OF THE SEAS. It was exceptional. Everything about it blew NCL out of the water. Next up is QM2 in a couple weeks, then back to Royal Caribbean in December, and then the new MSC SEASIDE in January. I'm really looking forward to that one. Splurged for the Yacht Club (inside cabin though).
The new Costa ship should be interesting, being LNG and all, but very high density. I'll probably pass on it. I'm not a big fan of the modern Costa. Basically a European version of Carnival but I think Carnival has better food and entertainment. So versions of the Costa new build will make their way to AIDA, P&O, and Carnival Cruise Lines. I'll probably just wait for the Carnival version to try it out.
On my radar now for future is EDGE, Virgin Voyages, the new Cunard ship, SAGA DISCOVERY which looks amazing, and the new Disney ships. Of course Royal Caribbean is also designing something completely new, but that is a long way off. Lots to look forward to! Oh and I desperately want to try any ship with Viking Ocean. They look fantastic.
