Everything... Norwegian ENCORE! Launch Nov 2019

Recommended Posts

With the change of joy coming to the us, there are now two ships with race tracks. Hope they change now the plans and do something other on the encore. If the change is still possible in the building process.

I take it you don't like the idea of a race track ;). With its popularity I would be surprised if NCL changed anything. I also don't believe you can compare the Joy and Bliss race track. On Bliss they expanded the race track which made it a real race track.

Only heard that at joy it is possible to overtake other karts and at bliss it is nearly impossible to overtake other karts.

Yes, i don’t like the karts. And I wish ncl would doing something different.

Had there been any official word that there would be a race track on the Encore? I thought I had been following the Encore news pretty closely (I am booked on the inaugural TA) and I hadn't seen anything yet about the specific attractions.

I would think/hope that NCL, being the inovator that it is known to be, would be looking for new venues, new ports, new ways of exploring... of course I could be wrong, I've been wrong before but, it excites me to see so many new ships being built. One can hope :D

I know, we got it all, I guess it's good to dream out loud sometimes, right? Just need to prioritize, that's my biggest issue; got the time, got the money (well, some anyway) just need to make up my mind.

Have we heard if Encore will have a covered Haven pool area? Or will it be set up for warmer cruises?

 

With Joy staying on the West coast year round, I wonder what year round plans will be for Encore and Bliss.

More than likely, it will have the retractable roof.

Bliss and Encore itineraries, at least for now are already set thru April 2020.

We find out this week officially where Joy fits in. They already deleted my Pearl/Alaska Aug 2019 and slotted Joy(no cabin yet).

Encore is scheduled for Miami for that first season, but have we heard where she will go for the rest of the year?

 

Will they return the Escape to Miami year round and send Encore to New York? With Encore's Observation lounge increasing the indoor spaces it seems likely she won't stay in Miami.

Well, we’re behind... as SingleCruiser just pointed out that the Encore’s atrium is sitting front and center on the web cam...

Is that oval cutout still the atrium? Looks off with the stairway directly behind it (unless the angle is off).
