My very 1st cruise!
Norwegian Encore Cruise Review
Review summaryI used to think cruise vacations were just for the elderly. I was wrong. I can’t wait to cruise again. So many dining, entertainment, and activities to choose from. You can’t beat the value.
Food and Dining
Maltings Whiskey Bar
It was as masculine as a a bat can get. Very put together. Dark woods and lighting. The drinks were good as well.
Sugarcane Mojito Bar
The raspberry guava and the pineapple coconut mojitos were excellent. I loved the Latin music playing. It provided for a great atmosphere. They have an outdoor bar as well. It was nice to sit and enjoy the view as well as the drinks.
Loved, loved, loved it! The food was amazing! The chef was even better. Not your typical hibachi routine. The routine was all his own and he should have been one of the comedians on stage at the comedy show. Had an amazing time with friends.
The Manhattan Room - Main Dining Room
A fine dining experience. The decor was immaculate. The service was spot on. The food was very good but the portion sizes felt a bit on the small side for my liking.
The food was excellent. I’m a sucker for Ted snapper and the Huachinango a la Veracruz did not disappoint. My favorite desert their was the Tres Leches.
As always with a buffet sometimes there are to many choices but I’m not complaining. My favorite station was “The Taste of India.” It was great! The desert bar and soft serve stations were a hit with me. There was enough choice to keep my sweet tooth satisfied. Having a bar in the buffet didn’t hurt either.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
As soon as you board the ship head for a kiosk and reserve everything you think you might want to experience. Dining, activities, etc., all fill up very fast.
