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

Recommended Posts

Maximizing my beverage package... Maybe, I could start hoarding water and red bull and sell them on board?

I walked by the Local and smelled chicken wings, so now I want chicken wings... Earlier, I ate some stuff from the Indian section of the Garden Cafe, but didn't take a picture... It just looked like a bunch of stuff on a plate...

One side is worse than the other, but it's almost too windy to be enjoyable on a good part of it...

 

That's no fun!  The Vibe wasn't open on our Getaway T/A...  I don't believe they sold any passes.

I just started drinking straight Don Julio reposado... Less filling, same effect as the full margarita...

Not very glamorous in the plastic cup...

Less Sugar / Carbs & hopefully less weight gain...

For that large of "Glass" you may need additional shots 🙂

I was bored, so I did a quick walk through the OL...

How in God's name could someone willingly press their face into a publicly accessible pillow!?

Ok the double sloucher sleeper photo deserves a Pulitzer Prize for photo journalism.  Its like taking an African safari and finding not one but two cheetahs sleeping upside down hanging from a tree.  Or better yet, mama bigfoot and her baby snoozing on grandma's back porch swing.

Why on earth would anybody want to fall asleep in public like that? Slack jaw snoring and drooling for all to see is not my idea of a fun time. On my Bliss cruise I somehow managed to stay awake every time I was in the OL, so it can't be some invisible noxious gas they are pumping into the area.

That's why I was so persistent in getting the shot... On my second approach, I decided that I was doing it whether the "hawk" was watching or not...

Especially when you consider the photo directly above that one!!!!

Totally oblivious to anyone else around them, society today, makes one wonder doesn't it??

I know where I will not sit in February!! Good thing they can't sleep in the bar stools 😂

One more of those from the Dream Team of NCL bartenders...

I recognize both of them. Good bartenders.

Artwork outside Food Republic.

We have something similar in Seattle - it's called the Gum Wall outside Pike Place Market.  For the cost of hand sanitizer you can stick your own ABC gum on the wall.     (No offence to the artist, who I'm sure wants us to see something about humanity.)

Consider me a hooked follower.  Thanks for sharing the fun with us!

 

Say, I'm a big fan of the Waterfront's only outdoor bar, the Cavern Club (and the It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar on the Escape) - who can argue with such great views, a bar, and an unlimited drink package?   That said, a bit too quiet.  Do you know if they finally added outdoor music to the bar with the Encore?

I just don't get this strange phenomenon...

I was thinking the same thing? I sure as heck don't go on a cruise to sleep in the middle of the day (or, if I do want a nap, I will go back to the room and go to the bed???) I would be so embarrassed at the thought of being asleep in full view of everyone/anyone - who knows who might sneak up to snap a pic (or maybe worse)....

Love this! I can just hear David Attenborough narrating it.....

Seafood buffet tonight... There was another line that had lobster, but there was a line about two hundred people long...  No way, Jose...

ikr

there are better things to do.  Such as spending the day at the bars and taking pictures of the drinks and sending them to  your tribe...

Anyone on board should have the bartender on the right (I forgot his name) pour them a glass of wine - it is quite a show
