Encore / Live / Solo(*)- Dec 1-8-2019...

Recommended Posts

After breakfast, I scouted the OL for nappers and bare feet on the furniture... I found a few sleepers, but there were people nearby, so I didn't photograph them. I did, however get a few covert shots of bare feet up on the new furniture...

Of course, there are very few people here this early, but I suspect this will reach critical mass by 11:00 am...

Ha ha.  I remember it was your undercover reporting from the Bliss about the droolers and bare feet people on the new furniture. I see some things never change  🙈
You are up early.  Enjoy your day, I am off to work.

P.S. When you are done with your breakfast, can you kindly request these people remove their toe jams off the furniture.  I will be on Encore in a few months 😖

Let's try out some of that fresh squeezed orange juice... Nothing but pure oj from this fancy machine...

Sign on the Megatron on the pool deck says "please refrain from reserving lounge chairs. Any items left on chairs for more than 15 minutes will be removed and stored in our public accessible storage located next to the towel exchange desk"

 

I've been standing here for more than fifteen minutes, and I don't see anyone monitoring anything... It's just chair hogging as usual...

While I don't condone chair hogging, 15 minutes is just ridiculous.

I don't believe I've ever been on a cruise where I haven't sat in a whirlpool, obviously away from my lounger, for more than 15 minutes. Or I've gone to one of the pool bars, ordered a drink and chatted up the bartender or one of the other guests for 15 minutes or more.

Is NCL telling me I can't ever leave my chair?

And obviously I know that there is very rarely anyone actually monitoring. I'm just commenting on the 15 minute rule you're seeing. And it was definitely at least 30 minutes on the Escape 18 months ago.

Anyway, have a great week and thanks for the review. I'm sailing Encore in 48 days!

The laser tag area was securely guarded by this impenetrable yellow rope...

I was able to gain access by walking around the magic security rope...

Showered off, and ready to conquer the day!... So far, the WiFi has been pretty decent. Better than the Bliss by far...IMG_20191202_092239.thumb.jpg.8036fff19ff462954e5f7b15d5a4dbfd.jpg

I have a theory about the barefoot folks because this is what my first instinct in the observation lounge would be....I wonder if they think they are being polite taking off their shoes! After all, one of the rules I was raised with was no shoes on furniture so maybe they are just following that rule. Obviously you then need to go a step further and think to yourself that this isn’t your living room and others have to share your sweaty, smelly foot patch BUT maybe they just stop at the “no shoes on the couch “ piece..,,,,,

15 minutes is ridiculous even though no one will be patrolling.  We just got off the Escape on Saturday and it said 60 minutes and there were definitely chairs left unattended for longer than that.

These people should be added to NCL's "Do No Sail" list.
