QUESTION - is CNBC still on the TV?  I am hearing that not all ships have it anymore.

On a funny note I saw Santa Claus!

I'm wondering if it's the same man who was on the VOV with us in July-August.  He dressed the part in every port, warm or cold!

That is the same Council menu we had our last night on NA last month. The guinea fowl was good and I had 2 of the crab cakes. The chocolate puff pastry was mmmmm!! 😀

Today begins Sea Day #4 and seas are much calmer, temperature is 70 degrees with highs expected to be about 79 degrees.  To go back to a previous poster wondering about the Sauna/Steam Rooms, the Sauna is for everyone and is located just outside the Lido Pool ( just past the ping pong tables on the left, thermal suite to the right as you go down the hallway towards the Spa area).  There is a men’s and women’s (men on the left women on the right) as I’ve tried to show in the pics below.

 

The steam room is ONLY for those who purchase a thermal suite pass.  Found out as well that for this cruise as well as the upcoming Hawaii cruises there will be no day passes offered for the Thermal Suite.  You either must be in a suite receiving your free one day pass or you must purchase a pass for the entire voyage.   Following post is today’s activities.

Haven’t taken too many photos of the Lido buffet area, but thought I would post one of my breakfast this morning to give an idea.  Today is just another kick around day for us relaxing, and reading, which is fine by me 😁

I hope you didn't answer this question previously, but I was wondering what you are hearing about the additional $10 per entree in the MDR.   There is a thread on CC that is going nuts about it, but I haven't heard from anyone that has 1st hand knowledge.   

 

I believe the Eurodam is one of the ships that is currently under the trial period but I may be mistaken.   It looks like it says that on your dinner menu but I had a hard time reading the fine print :classic_unsure:

 

I'm on NA in a couple of weeks and it is also one of the "trial" ships.

 

Any insight?

I notice a Happy Hour at 4, 7, and 9pm.  Previously, I think it has been only 4 and 9.

I like this.  I hope it goes fleetwide.

Looking at the menus posted in this thread, it says a charge of $10 will be added to your check per additional entree. It's just another petty upcharge, like they're doing in just about every other area. I get the motivation, but pinching those pennies until Lincoln starts screaming is not going to make it a better cruise experience. 

 

We were just on in January, and it hadn't started yet. So there were a few nights when a double entree arrived at the table (for several members of the "crew"). Guess that's going to change for the upcoming Hawaii trip - or maybe not. We'll see. With some $100 OBC cards from the TA, it might not make much difference.

 

And a part of me wants to ask just how long it's going to take before they figure out they can charge extra for towel animals, too…

Yeah, it is currently active on Eurodam for at least this cruise.  However, as mentioned previously, if you happen to not like what you ordered, then the waiter will bring you another one at no charge (this according to our waiter - who happens to be one of the best we’ve had btw!)

 

I think this is a crack down on those who would order several entrees in order to blog about them or sample each one, taking only a bite or two of each and wasting the rest.  My husband ran into one lady who did this:  ordered every single entree, took a bite of each entree, and left the rest.  Smh.

I didn't realize a NS perk is a one day thermal suite pass.  I am sorry we missed out on this perk last June on our Alaska cruise.

His post says otherwise.  I wonder if this is a new perk?

Now that I think back about it, I DO remember you saying that.   I guess I read so many in the other thread regarding this that I forgot you posted it here.   Thank you for taking the time to respond.....enjoy your cruise!     If you run into these 2 fellow cruisers....they are my parents 🙂

My apologies. I meant the 5* Mariners.  My understanding is (and I could be wrong!) is those 5* in a NS get a one day pass perk.

Now ending Sea Day #4 with another wonderful meal.  (Menu and pics to follow).  There will be one pic of hubby’s meal that is and isn’t on the menu.  He loves onion rings, but hates fish. So he requested the onion rings which was included on a menu item that was tuna, and had it served with his everyday steak instead.  He gave it 👍👍

And so I conclude another day preparing for some of tonight’s entertainment.  The strings at Lincoln Center Stage have been exceptionally good this trip.  I have been perplexed as to the absence of the main big production shows?  Hopefully one will show up here shortly.

Thanks much 😊

That mango cream horn looks delicious.

 

The production shows have pretty much disappeared from all ships.

 

Great pictures.
