Live from Encore TA

Recommended Posts

Evening from Southampton.   Yes it’s that time again.  And as with previous inaugural cruises I’ll be posting “live ish” daily from the ship.

 

We have been delayed due to the bad weather in the channel right now.   Strong stormy winds and we will be leaving at 11:15PM local time.

 

so I’m in a standard balcony cabin.  Ok pic attached.

 

Boarding as usual was painless and was onboard by 11:20 ready for my first beer in the brew house .  Yeah hold on menus etc will all come in the next few days.

 

so at the “not” sail away party in the observation lounge.   So fasten you’re seatbelts as it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Yes I know.

 

And I’m sitting at home sulking.

 

Still, you all sail away at midnight I believe then some people will lose internet and my Facebook feed will quieten down.

Yay a double whammy! Looking forward to following along. Been wishing I'd booked this one... but I have the first sunny (I hope) sailing out of Miami to look forward to on the 24th. I'll be sailing solo.  I look forward to learning from you and Doug and a few others on other social media channels while I pack lol Have a great time! 🙂

so tonight’s show in the theatre is Vox Fortura,  apparently a finalist in Britain’s Got Talent.  Oh you want to see the theatre?

Whats the Vibe like  How much is the cost

 

I saw a walkthrough on a YouTube video yesterday and wasn't impressed... hoping the folks on the TA will get a chance to show us more pics of it though. It was closed off earlier today.

   Just an FYI- The Doug Out started posting a “live from Encore” 6 hours ago.

it will be interesting to read two reviews about this TA. He is in the Haven with his wife. You will be reporting as a solo in a balcony cabin.

   There could very well be a tale of two TAs of the same ship on the NCL forum !

SingleCruiser - please don’t fret if I hijack your thread ... I’m using up my SIM data now before the ship sails.

 

Then I go into the dark. 
 

See ya around!!
