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


Recommended Posts

Wonderful review as usual, Sid!  I’m not a fan of the Encore - it’s a gorgeous ship, but  don’t like the removal of deck space for the go carts and laser tag.  I had originally booked Encore for our thanksgiving cruise, but cancelled when I found out my child wouldn’t be tall enough to drive the carts...plus I don’t really want to spend extra money on laser tag and go carts and hear my kid beg to do them all the time 🤷🏻‍♀️.


I’ll stick to the Escape, Breakaway, and Getaway- we like the ropes course, rock wall, Spice H2O, etc.  Glad you are enjoying your trip- the ports look fabulous!!  Thank you for taking time out of your trip to give us this live report!

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!


$244 to upgrade, and all over 21 in the cabin would also have to purchase.

Thank you.

My dh won't drink enough to upgrade $250 for him, I would LOL

This may be a good Christmas gift for my dd and her boyfriend that will also be sailing with us in their own cabin.
Thanks again.

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?

I prefer NCL slightly over Carnival, but I have a great time on either...

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. 

It wasn't that bad, but it's not too hot today. You can find seats in the sun if you want, or seats in the shade if you want. You'll just have to look in more places...

I've been out walking around and hanging out drinking up at Vibe for the past couple of hours while my phone was charging... Sorry, no drink p0rn... I hope to bring you all some more added value as the cruise winds down today and tomorrow... I've been sort of taking a "me day" for the most part this afternoon...


We'll be checking out Cagney's in a couple of hours, so stay tuned...
