  1. Thank you very much for taking the time to get these phots, we appreciate it!!! Hopefully you will get a chance to enjoy some sun, you pool deck/waterfront photos are just what lots of folks were talking about!!
  2. I hate to even ask this of you, BUT, (there's always a but right??), if you happen to think of it as you're snapping photos of the ship, any current menus would be awesome! My fiance' is a bit of a fussy eater so knowing in advance what some of the menus look like will be very helpful for reservation purposes (I do realize they could quite possibly change for next week but will still help) Thanks in advance!!
  3. Thanks so much for doing this "live" and posting the dailies! We board this coming Sunday so all this up to date info will be very helpful. Have a great cruise!!
  4. Thank you both for this very helpful information. Even though it may be windy I'm still determined to get passes just to be able to be in the sun without tripping over the masses!!
  5. Thanks for posting your opinion on the Encore, it does really help those of us with upcoming trips to gain some perspective on what to expect. That said, you mentioned "Vibe was wonderful, quiet and sunny", we are sailing 2/9 and I plan to try and get passes, was it not busy during your cruise?
  6. Hey Sid, looking for your recommendations since you are familiar with San Juan. We leave 2/9 on Encore and will be in SJ on Tuesday 530-1130, my fiance' isn't too keen on walking the streets at night, not comfortable out of her element, so wondering if you have a recommendation for good drinks, rooftop bar/resturant to get the sites, near the pier? I hope we can do some exploring nearby before it gets dark but can expect to stay close to the ship after dark. Thanks much for any insight!!
  7. Hi dshefter and welcome back, hope you had a great cruise! I just have a quick question based on your response above as we will be sailing on her in 2 weeks and purchased PA as well. Did you try or get Vibe passes? If so, where did you have to go to get them, I've read conflicting reports? This was my main reason for the PA purchase since there's not much public space on this ship. Thanks in advance and looking forward to your review. PR
  8. Looking forward to another great review, thanks for taking the time to bring everyone along!!
  9. Good to know that there might be a chance for us to get passes on our Feb 9 sailing. We are trying out the Priority Access program basically for this reason, hope it's worth all the extra $$$, not cheap when you add it all up! Also, could anyone tell me the hours that Vibe is accessible? Just wondering if the whole area closes down at night or if we can still access it to enjoy the sights after dinner even if the bar was closed. Thanks in advance!
  10. Thanks for the heads up on that, I appreciate it and you're correct, we would have been very surprised!!
  11. Forgot a couple answers! Just 2 of us and bed size can be whatever, we pretty easy to please!!
  12. I appreciate all the helpful information. To answer some of the questions: hotel budget- I'd like to stay under $300 a night if possible. After some thought I think at least one day pre-cruise, October 31 but would consider October 30 to just because there is so many places to visit. As far as flights doesn't really matter to me other than cost/convenience, we fly out of Portland, Maine so I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!
  13. I'm not sure if this is the correct Board or not but this thread sounds very familiar to the information I am looking for as well so I figured might as well try. We have a Bermuda cruise booked for November 1 on NCL Encore and I am trying to figure out if it will be best to fly in a day early and try to take in some sights before the cruise. Problem is I have never been to NYC before and am already overwhelmed with trying to research the options that will not blow the budget. Having 31 years as a firefigher I would love to visit the WTC memorial site and pay my respects in person to those that lost their lives that day. I would like to be close to the cruise terminal as well but again, not sure how any of my "wish list" items will work in to the schedule. Any suggestions from those familiar with the Big Apple would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  14. Well I guess time will tell how things end up, 39 days to go!! Thanks to all that responded, I appreciate the feedback.
