I’m with you. Plenty of other ships to sail that are racetrack free!

Oh my gosh! I was wondering when they might update. So many are getting updates at Port Everglades, etc. I’ll see this in February 2020!

At the german ncl Site Encore is now Open to Book, But what prices for the ta, Solo about 3.000 eur and a inside for one Person about 2.500 eur?

But no cruise from Bremerhaven to Southampton, Maybe for Travel Agency and Guests only? Wish it will be Open to Book for all and People Can test the new ship. That was the way i Booked my First cruise with ncl, it was with the escape from Hamburg to Southampton.

Booked an inside cheaper than a studio. But I have the Epic TA booked too so I’ll have to decide between the two.

For those booked on NCL, Booking dining etc is now 120 days instead of 90 days, mark you calendars
Effective immediately, Onboard Activities (Dining, Entertainment and Spa) are now available to pre-book/sell as follows
120 days before sailing for 7 days or more sailings
90 days for 6 day or less(except Holiday weeks 120 days)
Haven can book Dining etc at 130 days prior
I am not a VIP but I ended up on someones VIP communications list hmmmm
I guess then you are a VIP...at least to us you are. Is this where you saw these changes? Did you see them anywhere else. I have to step up my dining choices as we are sailing the Bliss in September. I sure hope we can see a few of the new menu's by then. Well at least the Q barbecue one.

Thanks for the info!

I was talking more about the Eastern Caribbean with the night time San Juan stop. I like sea days too, but ports are fun.

I agree with you. I was excited until I saw that San Juan was so late. I have wanted to go here but in the day so I can see things. I am disabled so mine is just being able to get out of the house day 1-7.

Sunset times in San Juan in November are between 5:45 and 5:50 PM. We dock at 5:30. I guess I won’t get to “see” San Juan after all on my Thanksgiving cruise.

Finalized my booking yesterday with my travel agent. I’m on the February 23rd 2020 cruise in a studio. My birthday will be in that time frame, and while the itinerary leaves a lot to be desired (was looking forward to San Juan as I’ve not been there since 1996), it’ll all be a shipboard experience to anticipate!
