  1. Who did you book your private transportation with?
  2. @graphicguyjust wanted to check back in after my Encore 9/4 sailing and tell you that you MUST try Onda. It was amazing. All four of us had a different appetizer and they were all wonderful. 2 of the group had the filet that must have been 4 inches thick and cooked perfectly, while 2 of us had the tagliatelle with lobster, which was also very tasty. 3 different desserts (pistachio cheesecake, which was proclaimed better than expected), tiramisu and I had the Butterscotch Budino, which was even better than the last time. But to top it all off, the waitstaff brought us a pizza, which we didn't order, and it was by far the best thing we ate on the ship. We talked about this pizza for the rest of the cruise and were trying to figure out when we would have time to get another one (we didn't...I even asked the F&B manager if we could get one for lunch but of course the answer was no). I don't know the name of it but it starts with an M and has prosciutto on it. If you only go to one specialty restaurant, make it Onda and get this pizza!
  3. Check out the Bliss 5-day Mexican Riviera cruise in January...$2029 p/p for the Haven.
  4. The VIP party on the 9/4 Encore sailing was on our first sea day (Sunday) from 7pm to 7:45pm. I had to miss it because I had dinner reservations for Onda.
  5. Unfortunately, Clarense "Chocolate Cowboy" is not currently on the Encore. But get a pic of the red plastic solo cups in Q.
  6. I got off the Encore last Saturday and my points were updated by Sunday morning. I didn't change levels so it didn't really matter but as others mentioned, I would stop by the Latitudes desk and inquire to get the perks added for your 2nd cruise.
  7. Yes, you can go into Q and order a spicy peach margarita (had one last week...one of my favorites).
  8. I am currently on the Encore and the game was on tonight, both in your stateroom and the District Brew House.
  9. I did! What a nice relaxing sail away. Having such a wonderful time with everyone.
  10. I took it in April 2019 on the Bliss Pacific Coastal sailing. I arrived at LAX around 7am in the morning with no shuttle reservation. There were NCL personnel just outside baggage claim and I asked if I could take the shuttle and they said yes. Charged it to my shipboard account. As more people arrived they had us together in a waiting area and once the bus showed up (around 9:30, I think) we boarded. They did wait for those on a 9:15 flight to arrive and get on. So they were pretty knowledgeable on flight times and who had reservations. I might do the same thing tomorrow in Seattle...haven't decided on my mode of transportation yet to the port but may just Uber it...I am flying in tonight and don't know if I want to go back to the airport in the morning or not.
  11. I have those anchor straws too but did not pack them. Love the idea of the fanny pack on the plane...why didn't I think of that?! See you tomorrow. Safe travels.
  12. For one of your specialty dinners, make sure you book Onda. It is fabulous. And if you haven''t been on the Bliss or Encore, stop by Q and get a spicy peach margarita and maybe an app or two (wouldn't use a specialty meal to eat there). 48 hours from now I will be on board and cannot wait!
  13. I have read various reports that it could apply to vaccinated ones as well and also that some countries will not abide by the ban. That's why I am waiting for the official report in the next 2 days to see what it really means. But my final payment is due on September 4th and I will be on the Encore that day so would like to make a decision before then.
