  1. That sounds like you got jipped on the tour but the scenery was beautiful. I've been on that side of the island too and it is so gorgeous!
  2. It's the Encore, They added seating since this picture was taken
  3. The looked like a fun day. I am totally laughing the finger pictures your husband took. My husband can't take a picture to save his life. One time I had him take one of me and Claire and he backed WAAAAAAY up and I thought.....what is he doing. And then we looked like ants in the picture.
  4. Sakari looks so happy to be there! I am not a water park person but would love to see this some day.
  5. I am so glad you got to use your balcony. I love balconies but I am so busy I rarely get time to just sit out and relax. But it is nice to have that option. I can't believe that family left Sakuri. I would have been so mad.
  6. Ugh! I can't believe they shut it down while she was on it. So annoying!
  7. Finally caught up! Wait an amazing dive and I am so glad you got to do it. You always have the best under water pictures. I was on the Encore in Nov. and she is very similar in looks to the Escape. (a few different things) My friend that went with me had just been on the Escape a few weeks before and she didn't like the Escape. She said service was really bad and people were smoking everywhere....even in the elevator. She has issues with smoke, but she doesn't care if people smoke in designated areas (I am a smoker too) but she was shocked how they would light up everywhere on the ship and none of the crew would say anything to them. We commented on the Encore how narrow the halls were. We didn't have luggage service on our sailing, but even just 2 people walking in the hall, one had to duck into the doorway coves to let the other pass. They were not thinking when they made such small hallways. Can't wait to read more!
  8. Looking at the list, just an update....there are reports of a enclosed area in the casino for the Encore
  9. I'm on the Nov. 21 christening sailing! I can't wait!
  10. You are going to have so much fun. I was really close to going on the Magic for the Oct 12 sailing to Bermuda, but I held off. My friend J is on it but then my daughter had homecoming on the 12th and I decided we should stay home for her first homecoming. She only has 4 years of highschool and I don't want to miss anything. It ended up being a good thing as I am now going on the inaugural christening cruise of the NCL Encore Nov. 21. I actually won that cruise with air included, so it's a great deal. hahahaha. I really liked Tiana's a lot. Thanks for reading! It was such a fun cruise. I can't wait for my next Disney one, but I have 2 NCL cruises scheduled (one in Nov and one in June) so it might be longer than I like before I get on one of their ships again.
  11. I will be on the Encore Nov. 21, so I will report back to where the smoking is and how it goes and hopefully get a few pics too.
  12. Oh yea, I do know about the refueling part. I thought it was just some new rule for being in ports. Glad to hear it's not.
  13. Loving all the pictures. I bet it has been fun looking over some forgotten memories! I'm doing good, but busy. I don't get much time to read lovely reports like yours anymore. But being busy is a good thing
  14. You are in my thoughts and I hope you can get through the next couple of days with minimal pain!
  15. I got so behind, but caught up for the most part now. I was told on Disney that they no longer require you to claim anything unless you made a big purchase and then I guess you are supposed to seek out for a form. Like who would do that or know to do that? But it works for me. hahaha. I know it wasn't your best cruise, but at least you had a get away and didn't have to work. You still had some good ports too! I am wondering how the Joy will be next summer when we sail her. It's been about 4 or 5 years since I have been on NCL and there are so many changes. But I just plan to go with the flow as much as I can. I am debating on whether we want to add dining, but I think I should just save our money for excursions and eat the buffet or dining room. My spoiled steak loving daughter will complain, but she'll get over it.
  16. That's good to know. I didn't have a lot of options when I booked through DCL and really didn't have a lot of time to research but if we go back I will keep this in mind and look for better options. Thanks!
  17. It looks like such a wonderful day. I haven't been to Costa Maya in several years and it looks like it is better than what it used to be.
  18. You always have the best underwater pictures. I hope the camera Sakari was using fixes itself. I was have some issues with my Olympus on my last cruise in Jan and I probably need to get a new one and keep this one as a spare but I just hate chucking out money for one right now.
  19. OMG! I am so sorry about your accident. My sister did the same thing but luckily she ended up with just a bad bruise. I hope the recovery is fast and the pain lessens up for you. I have heard similar complaints about the Breakaway. Such a shame. I haven't been on NCL in a few years but will be on the Joy next summer. I know I will have a good time but I worry about what changes I may see.
  20. This thread seems to be having the newest posted https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2596795-unofficial-guide-to-designated-smoking-areas-on-ncl-vessels/page/3/
