Escape - Live 7/22

If there's a drink of the day... it's well-hidden on the Freestyle Daily. O'Sheehan's has the pork spare ribs special.

 

We're lazy - still in bed and overhearing that we've been cleared for HC. A change from last time we were here: "Only cash and credit cards can be used in this port of call - Harvest Caye"

 

Heading down for coffee and breakfast in a minute.

Are you saying the last time you were at HC you could use your Sign & Sail card? And that now you can't?

Right - you used to be able to charge to your onboard account using your stateroom card. I believe they switched to cash/credit only back in June. No Amex.

 

But the following "advisory" has always been true...

Ask the Belize authorities. They are the reason UBP and such can't be used there, not NCL.

Eat and drink before leaving the ship. Get a drink and a bite upon returning.

I was told that if I could master this, it would lead to fame and fortune, aka 1,000 tickets...

No, I am not talking about the UBP not being able to be used. I'm saying why could passengers use their Sign & Sail cards at HC last year but only cash or cc's now.

Pool day. Feel the excitement.

Interesting... this was beautiful shiny wood back in December...

Now all of the decking on the walkway is coated in some grey non-stick paint.

That's probably due to the lady on our Dawn cruise. Saw her walking along looking at her cell-phone and she ran into a yellow 'caution' cone that was on the walkway. She tripped over it and fell down, and then made a huge deal over it ....maybe trying to get a free cruise:confused:

I agree it felt "off". Maybe there was a dispute in the ship/contractor settlement, or maybe NCL saw OBC being spent off the ship. I have no idea.

 

I wonder how much we'll see HC evolve over the next few years.

When we were there in February, we thought we were going to use our OBC on Harvest Caye. We spent like we were going to be using our OBC. Only to find out that we couldn't use the OBC to pay for our purchases/food/drink. It may have been the type of OBC we had, but we ended up having to pay that separately and then scrambling to spend our remaining OBC the last sea day.

Apparently the kids' stateroom has become a sanctuary for crane-game ducks...

And to think they were only $35 each. *swipe*

I missed our departure from Harvest Caye while getting cleaned up for the evening.

 

I head down to DBH to kick off the Bottle-n-Can-A-Thon portion of the challenge, only to find a packed music trivia starting up. I don't recall these being held here back in Jan 2016?

Now walking the Waterfront, which has quite a few guests lounging about. A couple tables at Cagney's just getting seated.

HC already far off in the distance...

First time I've passed Dolce Gelato while open this trip...

Am I correct in thinking that the Bliss will have the lifeboats tucked beneath the Waterfront?

Yes, I believe you are correct, as Joy has them tucked away and Bliss is closely related to Joy. By the way, loving the live review! Enjoy the rest of your cruise!

Here's the board in the hallway of the DBH where you can post your photo booth photos... which CoffeeGoddess (I think) mentioned earlier...

I love the Waterfront as it is today, but eliminating that visual obstruction will be great. Add in the forward-facing observation lounges... Bliss!

 

I come back to the stateroom to find this...

$210 well spent. There are now ducks being thrown. I'm leaving.

If your mind doesn't immediately go to the Breakaway's music video with Julie Valeriote, you're not a Norwegian.

CC really needs to get a "Like" button. I still have about 10 of those ducks floating around my house from our Getaway cruise in April. And $210?? The cruise is young...
