Encore Inaugural 2019
Norwegian Encore Cruise Review
Review summaryThis was a 2 night inaugural in the port of New York so casino and shops weren't open. Overall the ship was fantastic. We had two days to explore most of the ship and while we weren't able to experience it all, most areas were at least open for viewing. Service and staff were very friendly and professional making you feel welcomed and the food was amazing. Definitely would sail again!
Food and Dining
Waves Pool Bar
Nice view with a good mix of signature drinks.
The Manhattan Room - Main Dining Room
Service was phenomenal each night and the food was excellent.
Great option if you're looking for a late night snack.
The District Brew House
Good mix of beers on tap. Had live music each night but can be in the loud side making it difficult for conversation.
Maltings Whiskey Bar
Great option for drinks if you’re a fan of whiskey.
The Cavern Club
The Liverpool Beatles put on a great show. Caught the second night performance of Abbey Road. Great show and was impressed how much they each took on the mannerisms of the original Fab Four!
Galaxy Pavilion is a great interactive spot to spend a few hours. From virtual racecourse simulators, roller coasters, hanggliding and more it was a must see spot.
Saw Choir of Man which was a great show. Very interactive with a good mix of new and old music.
Wasn't able to experience it myself but was able to observe others. Looks like a fun track with a great spot for other guests to observe right in the middle of the upper bend in the track on the top deck.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Book shows, events and dining reservations as early as possible to be able to experience the full ship.
