Everything... Norwegian ENCORE! Launch Nov 2019

Recommended Posts

I’m sure this was already answered, but just there are a lot of pages to go through 😂 Just curious...after arrival in Manhattan on 11/11, where will she be/is there a repo cruise prior to arrival in Miami on 11/24?

She'll be in NYC for a couple of days with Travel Agents and invited guests on board.

She will then sail to Miami and there will be another preview cruise, then a kids charity event, then the Christening and Christening Cruise which is 21st to 24th November and then it's the 24th November sailing.

@NewbieCruiser123 I haven´t seen any ashers on the Haven Sundeck or on the Vibe Beach Club. So I can´t say for sure. I don´t smoke.

 

I just uploaded the first part of my really extense photo review... which starts actually with deck 5. There will be an entry each day until it´s finished. It´s a deck by deck review with separate entries for restaurants and bars & lounges. Here´s part 1. The text is in German but there´s no need to read the text (or try google translate). The bold wording plus the photos will do it.

Oh sure steamboats I got all that German! Managed to pick up a bit because it sounds like Yiddish! Great pics of Deck 5, thank you. Wish I knew what you said!

Found the thermal spa at minute 4:00 on this video. Just a very short segment though.

looks amazing so far :) 

I have 3 questions:

1. Are there bowling lanes on the Encore?

2. Is seating for shows first come first serve? does that create a hysteria and early line ups at the theater? Can seats be reserved?

3. Can The Social or The Cavern be reserved ahead of sailing?

Thanks!

Is there anyone currently on the ship who might be willing to get me the contact info for Marc Spijkerboer, the food and beverage director?

 

Thanks.

Question, do you have to make a mad dash to get the Vibe passes now, or since it is larger, can you purchase a pass before you get on the ship?

Not available to purchase in advance at this point. And nobody knows if the mad dash will occur. I won't be making a mad dash for a pass on 24th November. They sold two passes for the Transatlantic and the guy in that video was obviously one of them lol

 It was in one of the live threads... apparently the staff tried to talk them out of buying them but they insisted... I guess he wanted to be the first to post a video haha 

It was also reported in the same thread that the price is $209. 

 

It's an extremely underwhelming space imo for that price.

I am reading some misleading reports.  Is the Encore being damaged by bad weather in the NA on her transatlantic.  Or is that another ship.  Can someone verify.

On it now and I’ve not seen nor heard of any damage. Some decent waves (around 30 ft.), but nothing too bad.

I just read it on the face that someone lost the glass and railing from their balcony and a pic of a supposedly shattered Haven Observation lounge window was posted

I got a call from Norwegian on why I missed the Nov 2nd cruise.  After about a 25 min conversation I am sure I will not be called by them again.

 

From the sounds of the cruise I am happy I did not go now.

Looks like it's just superficial damage.  Glad to hear.

It was stated on Facebook that the glass, supports and railings came off a balcony and the Haven lounge has a window that shattered. Other than this, and weather it sounds like a good inaugural cruise so far.  This is being posted by some who are onboard.
