  1. Now, the glasses of wine. They don’t use small carafes anymore. The wine glasses now have a corkscrew symbol etched on them so when you are served a glass of wine the server bring the bottle of wine to show you and pour it into glass up to the level of the corkscrew. When you want a refill they bring the bottle and refill your glass. We questioned the wine waiter about the small carafes. He said people were questioning if they had the wine they asked for and some complained that it wasn’t the wine they asked for. We like the new method better as we get the chance to see the wine bottle. This method also applies in Garden Cafe and specialty restaurants.
  2. Found out a couple of days ago that the casino is NON-smoking!!! And there is an upstairs enclosed casino for the puffers.
  3. Now in Haifa Israel. @mertziek I don’t think we have met. I don’t know if you realize that a chuck (2-3 weeks) of the dry dock schedule got wasted by the French labour strikes and bad weather. So why blame on NCL. Also the French are said to be lousy plumbers. anyway we’re enjoying the cruise ourselves - having a ball despite the issues currently going on. Just waiting for warm weather so we can use the H2O pool. a lot of ppl seem to be enjoying themselves. This is our 2nd post dry dock cruise so we were prepared. This is our 25th NCL cruise so we just go along with it. Our 6 friends (that weee on Getaway TA in 2017 are here having good time.
  4. Outside - pool deck and Biergarten. still smoking allowed port side in BG. for some reason the bottom of glass railings are frosted. Then final pictures of Spice H2O pool from deck 13. Cheers!!!
  5. Garden Cafe. (Ex Raffles Court) I think the carpet is same as the one on Encore but I’ll have to check my photos.
