  1. Pros: it has all the good stuff that you probably like on other NCL ships. It is basically the same in most areas as the newer NCL ships so If you like that stuff you’ll be content with the encore cons: pool deck. Ridiculous. way too much space dedicated to the vibe and laser tag. I was on a packed sailing and hardly anyone was ever in vibe and laser tag. I know pool decks are notoriously crowded on cruises but really, this was too much. That kind of crowding won’t fly in the SARS-nCoV-2 era. I will not sail encore again for the pool deck
  2. I think one of my tops is a “funny, but also kind-of, not” from my Encore in March on the last week before the shutdown. A huge brawl broke out in the club and people spilled out as the fight continued under the chandelier.
  3. Here in Ontario way behind everywhere else it seems. Every time there’s a glimmer of hope that our cases are declining, we get a huge jump. And the outbreaks in care homes show no signs of ending
  4. Thank you! I should be clear, my symptoms were very light, and at no time was I worried enough to consult medical advice. I never had a fever, which is the most common C19 symptom. They were just “noticeable” and irritating more than anything, because I would be having a conversation and then just start coughing randomly. They were similar symptoms I had when I was getting over the flu a couple years ago...which was much worse. I had a dyspnea and a dry cough for 2 months after I got over the actual flu. From then on, I have always got the flu shot 🙂
  5. Can’t wait till this happens. Making no progress on it up here in Canada. Was on the Encore March 1 and later learned Via the Miami Herald That crew tested POZ after operations were suspended in March. No confirmation as to whether the crew member got it on land or within the ship. when I got back, my symptoms were as follows: - dry cough at night - waking up in the middle of the night from a cough - night sweats - light dyspnea and spastic cough while talking the symptoms Started about 2 days after I debarked, lasted about 7-10 days And then went away. I suspect it was probably cruise crud or a common cold but I really wanna get an antibody test and I’m crossing my fingers I’m C19+
  6. Wondering if I should try to get a refund for my 8 cruisenext just purchased
  7. Let’s all relax till we hear. Their systems are probably overloaded like the stock markets and might just temporarily be down
  8. aren’t they allowed just to change ports without obligating a refund? They do it all the time. Remember that cruise a couple years ago from east coast that was supposed to go to the Caribbean But instead went to Canada due to bad weather? No reason they couldn’t do the opposite here, is there? hate to say it, but... yeah... also, I love my country, but why people wanna cruise here, I can never understand.

  10. Oh geez! I never even thought of the west coast impact here. I was thinking all east coast. My lord, this is big news.
  11. Just saw it live on the news. It is also alL over twitter as an announcement from the transport minister.
  12. No cruises Over 500 people will be allowed to dock in Canada until after July 1. Just announced. this will affect NCL cruises in May and June on the pearl. as an aside, no non-essential travel has been recommended for Canadians.
  13. This cruise shall be forever known In my mind as the “fight” cruise, haha.
  14. I think it should be 75. 70 might have been ok in the 1980’s but today’s 70-year-olds aren’t what they used to be. Many of them are still working and going to the gym Even more than I do
