    Thanks. Just thought it was unusual that the shows happen so late in the week and only 2 days/4 shows.  But I guess that's enough for everyone to see it.


    Got to remember there are four more shows over two nights for Choir of Man as well...  and then one night was an early show with The Yesterday Beatles with a late show from a comedian in the main theater...  so total of 10 shows over five nights in main theater.

    My wife and I had the SDP, our 2 daughters were able to use our platinum voucher for lacuchina. We ordered an app each, a pizza, 2 pastas, our mains, and a dessert ea.  Our daughters got an app, main, dessert. So we shared the pizza and the pastas with everyone.. it was WAY too much food.....


    They allowed you to use the platinum voucher in Ondo?? The platinum voucher on Encore is supposed to be good only for Q or Los Lobos for one voucher and Cagney’s or Le Bistro for the other voucher.

    I feel like not many people are talking about Encore here. I’m comparing it to how many comments were posted so often for Bliss and Escape leading up to its first sailing. There were so many questions and a lot of excitement mixed in with of course the concerns. We sail on Encore next fall and I look forward to coming to these threads to see updates.

     

    Theres been over 2200 posts....  that isn’t a lot?

    If you zoom in, some of those balconies do not appear to have a divider. Is it possible the connecting balcony cabins will be without a divider?! 

     

    I would imagine more likely the dividers just haven't been installed yet since they are essentially just swinging doors...  They can likely install them during this final outfitting phase.

    Can't you request an extention? Been a while since I've purchased any. 

     

    You can but there is no guarantee it will be honored.  I had one I purchased from someone and used to book a cruise for Thanksgiving this year.  We ended up cancelling that one and booking two weeks later to take advantage of free airfare instead and at first, they were not going to let me keep the Cruise Next because it had already been extended to cover the Thanksgiving cruise.

     

    After talking to a really nice manager, they did agree to a 2nd extension of 14 days to allow me to  use it on the December 8th booking we did but they basically said this time would be a use it or lose it as there would be absolutely no further extensions granted.

    Were you allowed to make reservations on line or not until you boarded?

    One sailing, we made a reservation online in advance and then dined there a second time during the cruise where we made a reservation onboard.  The other cruise we just dined once and did it online in advance.

    We are booked on two cruises, one next July and one the following February. We have already booked but have not paid in full.

    The Norwegian site; awful, by the way, is difficult to maneuver through to find an answer. So, I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question.

    Can we purchase a cruise next certificate and apply it as a payment for an already booked cruise.

    Thanks, in advance.

     

    We’ve had luck using Cruise Next as a payment option through the website on multiple occasions.  Just select $250 as the amount you want to pay and then choose the cert as the payment option.

     

    This is not guaranteed as it is not intended to work this way...  but we’ve never had a problem doing this.

    In My NCL I found that Los Lobos has the tag "reservations not offered" but it is still a "pay" restaurant. Do you just show up and hope that they have room for you?

    We eat very early as be do at home and have no problem eating as soon as the restaurants open.

    We will probably have up to nine people going at once.

    Comments?

    That’s odd...  we’ve made reservations both times we’ve eaten there on Dawn.

    You're saying the public deck space that was taken away (A and B) was relatively small?  Well guess what, it's about the same size of what's left of the public deck space (C).  So yeah, I guess it is relatively small.

    I'm essentially with the group complaining about lack of free public space but hold on a minute...  Let's be honest, the upper, upper most area in your "A" was not public deck space on Bliss or Joy...  It's the Laser Tag area (Deck 20).  The space that was lost was only on Deck 19 (the bottommost part of your "A" where the hot tub is located).

    I would call and specifically just ask them to add the code (at least that's what I did), maybe you can at least get the extra points? They DID have to rebook me, because they weren't able to "just add the code" for some reason.  but all the promos were the same so it didn't change anything AND the price reduced.   To be honest, I'm not sure what they did or how they made it work but I'm not complaining.  However, if you would have to rebook and lose the 15% off, then it may not be worth the hassle....

     

    Thanks for the info again.. I've reached out to my "personal cruise consultant" in the Casino department as well.  Got lucky one day on the phone and got a really, really helpful guy in the casino department.  I asked if it was possible to get his email/direct ext./etc. to be able to just use him direct in the future.  I don't know why I didn't think to reach out to him in the first place.

    I'm pretty sure if I have to rebook, I would lose the 15% discount because it was a special deal where we had to rebook a cruise within X number of days from the last one being cancelled...  And after that deadline, the 15% was no longer valid.  Even if I lost it and gained the 20% off it would still save a bit more and sounds like I would gain an additional point per night too which would be awesome on an 11 night cruise.

    I don't know if that's true.  I originally booked my Nov 2020 cruise on the Jade through Caesars with my discount.  I called yesterday to get the 20% price reduction and was originally told the prices wouldn't change for me.  BUT, I called back later in the day (actually just to have the promotion code added to at least get the $100 OBC and extra points), and they were able to give me the new reduced price!  Now, I did, for some reason, have to give up my previously acquired $100 OBC for booking with a CruiseNext certificate. I didn't really understand that part, but I saved $2k on my booking so I am certainly not worried about it.  The code they applied is LATVIP, so I don't think I get the extra points either....But I am not sure.  Either way the cost savins was worth it.  So, if you booked through Caesars I would for sure call and ask them to add the promo code and see how it works out. 

     

    I may have to try again then...  I talked to two different people who said the Caesars discount was not combinable with the Latitudes discount.  Even if it is, it won't save me that much more because I have a 15% off credit from NCL cancelling a previous cruise that I would lose as well...  So I'm basically only getting an additional 5% discount if I can get them to use the Latitudes special offer.

     

    My hope was that the Latitudes offer was combinable with both the previous 15% off AND the Caesars 20% off...  That would be a HUGE overall discount for sure.

    I’m sure it has been asked a ton, but I just need a little bit of advice. Sailing on the bliss  August 12... originally booked an inside gty for $1399.  Balcony prices dropped about a month ago and upgraded to that for $360 for the two of us. 

     

    I know notice the balcony rooms dropped to $1199, while mini suites have not dropped below their $1799 price drop from earlier.  Has anyone have any luck with customer service? Can they offer OBC for the price difference or should I just be happy and move on? I am very thrilled to have a balcony room on an Alaskan cruise for an affordable price.

    Have always heard they will do one adjustment/upgrade after final payment and that is it.
