  1. For the $, JiJi is the best restaurant on the ship... (Drops mic)
  2. My theory on the low ratings is that people are much more inclined to post a negative review to get their complaints out in the open for all to see... There are still plenty of people having a great time on the new Encore (including me) I remember when the Escape first came out, there was a similar pattern of poor reviews... I sailed the Escape four times since then, and had an awesome experience every time.
  3. Well, since no one else has started one for this date, here we go!... This board in general hasn't been getting much action at all, considering this is a brand new and exciting cruise line... Hopefully that'll pick up when the first sailings begin. I had originally booked for June 26th, but I realized that the stop in Cozumel was on a Sunday. Now, I'll be visiting Cozumel on "taco Tuesday"!!!... 123 days to go!!!...
  4. All of the same officers and crew should still be onboard in late January as were there in December...
  5. I ordered the lobster mac and cheese as well as the Brussels sprouts on the Encore in December, and there was an additional charge of four dollars and some change... What the heck, it's vacation!... The lobster mac and cheese ended up having one piece of lobster in it, and it was so tough that I chewed it for a minute and ended up spitting it out.
  6. Of all the ports in the Caribbean, Cozumel is one of my favorites. I've been there more than a dozen times, and I always look forward to going back...
  7. I'm resurrecting this thread to let you all know that I'll be sailing on the brand new Virgin Voyages to Cozumel and Bimini on June 26 the... Join me for the Live Review over on the Virgin Voyages message board beginning a few days prior...
  8. Well, it looks like I'm "jumping ship" to Virgin Voyages... Join me on June 26th for the Live Review on the Virgin Voyages message board...
  9. Most definitely go to Onda... One of, if not the best meal on the ship in my opinion...
  10. Maybe I'm the only one going on this cruise... Just booked today!
  11. My favorite food on the Bar Hop is at Rastas... The coconut shrimp is great, as well as the whole fried fish. Also, try a shot of their famous peanut butter tequila. Sounds gross, but tastes great...
  12. Another reliable option is to fly to Caye Caulker from Belize City municipal airport. I've done this a couple of times and it allows you more time there since it's so much quicker... I booked directly through Tropic Air.
  13. I booked this about a week before they announced that the first several sailings had been cancelled... Now, it looks like we'll be the third set of passengers on the brand new ship... Can't wait to check out the first in an entirely new class of vessel for Carnival...
  14. They will have it on multiple night's, including elegant nights depending on demand... You can stop by the steakhouse on the first day of the cruise and they will be able to tell you which night you've been assigned. You can request to be moved, but it isn't always possible.
