Vibe beach club

Recommended Posts

Yes, Escape has VIBE. It is located on the starboard side, forward. Just aft of the Haven sundeck.

 

A pass must be purchased to enter. The passes are a limited number.

From what I understand, many people try to get on the ship as early as possible so they can purchase the Vibe passes.  As the previous poster indicated, they only sell a limited number of them.  You would need to find out exactly where they are being sold, sometimes it is at Reception and sometimes they are sold at another location.

Yes, there is Vibe on the Escape. 

 

The 80 passes for the 4800 passengers are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis. All people wanting a pass must present themselves at time of purchase. You need to show up at the port very early (before security opens). Be the first one in the security line. Move very quickly to check-in having all of your paperwork filled out and passports in hand. And hope that you get boarding group 1.

 

When boarding starts, Priority Boarders are allowed to board first (Haven, Ambassador, Platinum Plus, Platinum, and Casino guests). Then general boarding. You have to walk very quickly (not run) to Headliners on Deck 6, Mid and hope that there are passes left (i.e., the priority boarders did not grab them all). If there are passes left, you pay for the pass.

We are going on the Bliss.  From what I understand we enter the ship on deck 7 and quickly need to go to The Social on deck 6.  Is that right?  I have a walker and will take extra time for the elevator.  My husband is going to walk briskly to get there.  Do you think they will give him 2 passes or will we have to wait until I get there.

You will also need to know the Password and secret handshake....

Can anyone confirm the Process for getting Vibe on the Bliss?

What is the cost per person and is it really worthwhile?

The cost is 129 pp for a seven day pass.  There are no daily passes sold.  Literally, the vibe of Vibe depends upon the mix of those who have purchased passes.  It was recently reported by some who did a B2B that one week was great and the other not so much.  I enjoyed it while on the Escape multiple times, but got shut out last week on the Bliss.  There were only 25 passes available to the general public and the process is just as BirdTravels said regarding the priority list.  When we cruised on the Escape, wheelchair passengers were escorted on after priority and before the general public, so were were able to snag passes.  The process was not the same when we boarded the Bliss and even though we arrived at Terminal C at 905 am and was in the first 20 people to go through security, it was wasted time since our escort got mixed in with general boarding at 1115 am and the sold out sign was up at the Social when we arrived.  I look at it this way, I saved myself 258 bucks.  It was worth it when it cost me 198, but a 30% increase combined with the Prohibition Show going from 24 to 36 after gratuity just reinforces the nickle and dime mentality of NCL.

1 pass per person, both have to be there.

My opinion only.  I once got Vibe and a Spa Pass and it was a waste to have both.  Just did not use the Vibe that much on that cruise because I was in the Spa.

My opinion. Thought about trying for vibe passes on my Escape cruise this past July and ultimately decided it wasn't worth the stress or the effort. You can do everything right, get onboard early in the right section and run to get them and still you can fail.

I decided that the last thing I want for my family is to start off our vacation with disappointment.

I want joy, happiness and laughter for the entirety of my cruise.

I will say that we did a lot of hanging out on sea days in the section right outside of Vibe on deck 19 and it was great.

Quiet, not as crowded as by the pool area, 2 whirlpools, a mister to cool off and a great bar.

Again, just my 2 cents.

Is there a private pool at the Vibe? Is that the big draw?

No pool in the Vibe....  YouTube has some nice "tours" of the area that include lounge chairs, private bar, jacuzzis and limited assigned cabanas. 

 

The "draw" is the limited passes sold and some like to escape the crowds.
