WOW, the theater looks so fancy in red. I also see the air conditioning vents on the seats have returned to NCL after going missing on Epic and several ships after.  I like the carpet everywhere except the Atrium. Not sure why but it falls flat and looks out of place IMHO.

Back from the Encore...

 

To answer so some of the posts since Wednesday:

 

- Steff79, no, there´s no bar inside the theater

- yes, this is the new somking lounge on the Waterfront and the inside photo is mine (I posted it as I follow this thread and thought I need to post an answer to this discussion)

- The Onda Menu is not the whole menu. It was the menu for a special event on Wednesday night. I had the pleasure to be there too.

 

Let´s talk about prices... We were told

 

Kart - 15 USD for a single ride

Galaxy - 7 USD for a single play

Laser Tag - 10 USD for one game

 

There are passes for the race track and the Galaxy Pavilion. I think it was 199 USD for a whole week race track. For the Galaxy Pavilion there are hourly passes and weekly ones.

 

It will take me a bit more time to get through my almost 2 K pics and get them online. It´s not my goal to be the first one ;-).

 

All in all... a very nicely designed ship. Some slight changes in the cabins compared to the Bliss. Still no USB ports at the vanity desk - only the ones in the bedside lighting.

 

As for food pictures on IG... Garden Café and Main Dining Rooms had special event menus. So do not expect an abundance of crab legs on a regular cruise. There was even Surf & Turf on the first night with lobster... We had prearranged dinners in Le Bistro and Onda plus a lunch tasting with almost all specialty restaurants.

 

Wishing Doug a great cruise! And if you have any questions...

Is there a smoking area on the Haven sundeck?  (Please no comments about smoking, just looking for information).

We didn't really like the food to be honest - preferred La Cucina on the Bliss.

More than likely, the forward-most part of the Haven sundeck allows smoking.
