Bayamo on Escape

Recommended Posts

Is Bayamo part of the dining perk? Does any one have a recent menu? Thank you!

Yes. It is included in the Specialty Dining Plan. 

 

BirdTravels do you have the menu that includes desserts?

Bird has the menu posted on her current Joy trip report (1st page)

Is there a surcharge?

We were on the Escape in April (and did a live post). Since that time, NCL supposedly standardized menus across the fleet. I have no evidence that Bayamo by Ocean Blue has the exact same menus as the other Ocean Blues in the fleet. 

 

Post #31 has the Ocean Blue menu from the Joy. 

 

On the Joy, there is no longer an upcharge and there are no upcharge items. Personally, I don’t see this lasting.

Thanks for the responses.  I went ahead and booked this as one of our specialty dining meals.  I to can’t imagine the no up charge will last but hoping all will be good for our Thanksgiving cruise.

When we were on the Escape in June there was an upcharge at Bayamo,  $10 if I remember correctly.

There were also upcharge menu items, I had the lobster. Probably will not do that again. but the atmosphere was very  upscale.

We just got off the Escape yesterday and we ate at Bayamo.  No upcharge.  You got to order one appetizer, one main and 2 sides and one dessert.   The chocolate sorbet was awesome....

Can you settle the debate whether the full lobster has an uncharge or not?  

 

Or maybe someone else recently on one of the OB/Bayamo ships can clarify.  Thanks.

In June there was an up charge for going to Bayamo, and an up charge for having the lobster.

The lobster was not all that good. Service was great, more formal than other venues.

On the Escape there was no upcharge.   I had the full lobster as well and no extra fee.  I did not think it was that great.

 

the best things were the scallop appetizer and chocolate sorbet..  

service was great.  

 

We we sat outside and I was in a sundress and hubby in pants but the table next to us had a guy in shorts.

one apetizer?

did ncl change the policy of unlimited appetizers with sdp when they changed  the upcharge policy fleetwide?

Not unlimited.  They told us exactly what we could have at each restaurant.

 

In Cagneys I had 2 appetizers instead of one and a salad.

lol.. what the staff is instructed to tell you and what you are allowed to order are two different things!

 

earlier this year before the upcharge eliminations, i got the same spiel about 2 apps at le bistro.

i ordered 5 apps and told the waitress to charge me if the computer doesnt say free.  (she genuinely believed it was 2 app limit because thats what she was taught.) 

 

my bill was $0.

I had enough food with what we got to eat.  Also since this was our first cruise on NCL I did not question what they said.

 

Thoroughly enjoyed the meals at all the specialty restaurants and non charge venues as well.
