  1. So is the terminal NCL is currently using clearly marked as you enter the port? Is the parking garage still the same one as in the past?
  2. Yes, he was very proud of his kids and showed us some photos, he also took a photo of us so he could show his family.
  3. Did he go by Arnie? We had a butler on the Getaway in 2015 that had a very young son and an older daughter who was just so wonderful and friendly, we also had him as a butler on the Escape a year or two later. We knew he was saving up to retire and head home to the Philippines so he could see his kids grow up.
  4. If you are working with a travel agent ask them to check current rates up to the week of your cruise on cabins you would be willing to pay a little more for. So if rates drop enough that you can get into an upgraded cabin for an amount that you would be ok paying, go ahead and give your TA permission to change your cabin for that set amount. The rates dropped enough on my cruise in March that I could get into a Haven cabin for the amount I bid, so I just went ahead and paid the difference.
  5. I’ve sailed on both and I prefer the Escape. Reasons: SpiceH2o Howl at the Moon more free outdoor activities
  6. Thank you, I loved the whole review, stunning photos and so excited now for our May Bliss cruise👍
  7. So it’s been a few years since I cruised the Escape, it was in an H5, and this time I’m looking at booking a Haven Spa Suite. I can’t remember if there is a staircase from the deck 16 Haven Spa area up into the deck 17 lobby by the Concierge desk, or do you have to go outside the Haven area on deck 16 and take the public stairs up? I’ve watched every YouTube video that I could find and still can’t tell. It’s not a deal breaker, but now I’m really curious. I know the Getaway had a staircase from the deck below that came out by the Concierge desk . Anyone know?
  8. I didn’t go behind the pool courtyard area of the Haven on the Encore so I can’t say for sure about a sauna. Hopefully some here can say for sure.
  9. I heard from an excellent source that Margaritaville will soon be replaced by American Diner while on the Getaway. Good thing as service and food there sucked 3 weeks ago.
  10. Agree about the toilet paper, fast food restaurants have nicer quality tp. I had a great butler, Ramon in our Haven aft balcony on the Dec 8 cruise.
  11. Nice to know you can share the platinum dining voucher. I’ll be cruising solo in a studio next month. This is a great review, can’t wait to see more.
  12. Thanks, and you will love the Haven on the Encore, I was able to tour it during a preview cruise last month. It is beautiful and Adrian Bica is an awesome concierge.
  13. I’m taking some candy canes with me when we board the Getaway this Sunday! So thanks for the idea. Question: was there a separate security line for Haven passengers in the New Orleans terminal? And finally, thank you for your review.
  14. Black Friday specials on Beverage packages, dining, Voom and shore excursions start tomorrow.
