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

Recommended Posts

Mid day and the pool area is hopping... Unfortunately, I'm too fat to take my shirt off for the rest of the cruise...

What's wrong with this picture? Let's say you're at the urinal on the left. Someone walks in, and you're standing there with you know what in your hand, and it's right there for everyone to see...

Well, I wouldn't see anything wrong with that picture  🙂

One more of the behemoth before I check out the Observation Lounge for the first time...

It is ugly enough but when they make it red, well....maybe I'm the only one seeing it since I'm a woman, not sure. Gross LOL

I'm scouting around on the pool deck and surrounding areas. I've found entire sections of empty chairs in several places. The point is, that if you want a chair, they're out there. You may not get the exact one you want, in the exact place that you want, but they're there...

I walked to the back to check out the race track...

 

 

Did you go for a spin? Do you have to reserve a time early in the cruise?

It appears to be like just about every other big ship. Not nearly as bad as everyone feared. I've become more optimistic and excited for my sailing in January. 

Thanks again.

I wandered into the laser tag area again, since the magic yellow rope wasn't up...

How hot was it there? That's the trouble I've found on other -Away classes. There's some places that get no breeze so it's stifling - which is why the chairs are usually pretty empty.

WOW!

 

Just read the full review so far and LOVE it!

 

We are sailing Encore in August and cannot wait!

 

LOVE Bong and Chocolate Cowboy! My dh and I ended each night of our Escape cruise

with Clarence at the 5 OClock Somewhere bar.  Cannot wait to hang there every night after making our

rounds to other places. 

 

Do you know the approximate price in total it was to upgrade your drink package and by chance do you know

if both people in the cabin have to have it upgraded? For instance, I would certainly make use of the upgrade

while my dh would be fine with the regular alcohol package.

 

Your pictures are fabulous and I LOVE your shirts. I may have to google the bacon flag and get that for my dh LOL

 

Enjoy your cruise and thank you for taking time out of your vacation by taking us all along!

Thanks for taking time from your cruise to give us all the food porn, drink porn, beautiful pictures, and your commentary!  It is almost like being there.  
How does this cruise compare to your Horizon cruise?
