Quick Review of Encore 7 Day Caribbean

Recommended Posts

Embarktion - very quick and easy.

Inside stateroom - Big enough for 2 but closet needs light.

Service - Top notch

MDR  Food -  was good but does not compare to other lines for variety. No shrimp, prime rib, offered.

Entertainment -  Choir of Man the very best. Kinky boots ok and comedians ok.  Would not miss if they did away with go carts and virtual reality. Laser tag we got rained out.

Pool area - Was crowded but did not find it much different from other lines. Chairs were monitoured for time and items removed by pool attendants.

Excursions well organized and easy on and off ship.

Debarking  quick and easy.

In summary I sail with Princess and Norwegian as I get Casino discount with both. Princess by far has better MDR food but Norwegian had a better deal on the drink package that Princess  could not come close to.  I would sail again on the Encore if it was the itinerary I wanted as I have never had a bad holiday on any cruise I have been on.

What was the time you observed on removing items from pool chairs?  I'd seen on other posts the 15 min notification on the big screen.....that seems very quick and not even enough time to go to lunch or hang in the pool itself.

It says 15 min on the screen but they would give more than that.  I seen some that were over and hour and a bit and was finally moved.  My brother went up to get a drink at the bar and it was very busy and he was gone 15 min and a person had moved his towel and shoes and was sitting there on his chair.  Some people are just down right rude. Not sure why people think they can sleep late go for breakfast and show up at the pool at 11 and expect a chair to be waiting for them.  There are chair hogs and Norwegian dealt with it professionally.
