looks amazing so far 🙂

I have 3 questions:

1. Are there bowling lanes on the Encore? No

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? You can make (highly suggested) a reservation at the Box Office but not for a specific seat (first come, first serve)

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

Thanks!

Where are all the pictures of the rooms? Is it normal to not see any pictures so many days into the cruise? 

 

There were some show cabins open for viewing during the inaugural cruise. I´m still working on my photos and that will take some time until I have those up. I only have the first three parts online covering deck 5 to 15 (more each day). But check out the photo gallery of my DH. You will find cabin photos there too.

Although it doesn´t look as elegant as on the other ship I like the chandelier. Colors are changing which makes a nice athmosphere.

 

I "made" my way up to deck 16 in my review covering the pooldeck and the spa/fitness center. Tomorrow will be deck 17 and then the day after the last part covering decks 18 to 20. After that 3 parts about the restaurants onboard will follow. I´m still working... bars and lounges are next.

 Thank you for the deck and the thermal spa photos. 
 

Man, that is a LOT of deck chairs for two small pools,,

when we were on the Bliss in Dec 2018, I don’t remember their deck with so many chairs. But I guess the Encore is trying to squeeze as many chairs on that deck as they can since the outdoor deck space is now limited.

I know this is a silly request, but why not try right? If by any chance you can get a photo of the balcony on a mini suite (M6) would really appreciate it. First time in one May 2020 on Encore & am really curious about the size of the balcony. Thanks! And thanks for all your photos, so much fun to be able to "come along" on this cruise

We had an MA (12804) this time. But we had a large balcony Mini Suite on the Bliss (12908). Should be pretty much the same. You can see photos here.

 

Deck 17 went online today - so photos of the Haven Courtyard, upper sundeck, jogging track, table tennis, Galaxy Pavilion.

May I ask you - does the separator between the balconies on the aft open?  I have read that NCL doesn't like them open when one is at sea, but will allow it when at a port.  Seeing the difference in size of the aft balcony makes me consider upgrading, but I have 2 rooms and those aft staterooms aren't adjoining (which I would like).  

 

BTW, I really love your pics on your blog.

NCL’s current policy is not to open dividers at any time for fire safety reasons.

Technically you can open them but this is for maintenance only not for passenger use.

My DH did some 360° photos which you might enjoy.

 

I´m on the train to Hamburg for the new MSC Grandiosa but more parts of my review will go online today and the next days of course. Not so much enjoying the 6 hour train ride instead of a one hour flight which was cancelled due to a strike of the flight attendants.

I heard someone on a YouTube video say it is called the Rose chandelier.. it is starting to grow on me. I did not like it at first either, but now I kind of am. 😉

The chandelier is growing on my wife and I the more we see it and how the lights change and shift.  But I won't know for sure until I board and see it in person.
