Mitsugirly needed to ESCAPE from the cold weather

Ship Tour Pictures

On to the ship pictures.....

We will start at the top, since that's the most happening and funnest part of the ship.  😂

DECK 17:

 

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville:

 

This is an extra paid venue with Jimmy Buffett signature items like Cheeseburger in Paradise, Who's to Blame Margarita and so on. The charge is $14.95.

 

HOWEVER, remember that this place also offers a FREE buffet breakfast in the mornings. Both hot and cold items and coffee. This place will NOT be crowded if you are looking for a good place to eat breakfast instead of the fast and busy crowded place at the buffet.

This is the slide that you use the tube in and it has the lights and other interesting things in it.

PC150165 copy.jpg

These "carvings" in the tube is where they have the paint missing in the shapes of animals and when the sun is shinning, it shows when you're inside. (At least this is what Sakari told me).

SPICE H20:

 

This is an adult-only retreat area during the day. There are lounge chairs and hot tubs along with a nice waterfall grotto to cool off in. There is a bar there and a smoking area around the bar.

 

At night, they hold dance parties here including the GloParty. There's also a huge video screen and they host movies there in the evenings.

WAVES POOL BAR

This bar is located in the middle and overlooks the adult pool and tv screens and the back side you can see the kiddie waterpark, family pool and slides. It is a smoking area in front and down the sides of the bar.

DECK 16:

 

Main Pool, which is the "family" pool. Notice they have a red dot over the "No" in lifeguard on Duty. They have lifeguards. After all the drownings and problems with kids over the last several years, I believe NCL, RC and Carnival all have them now.

PC190901 (2).jpg
PC190898.jpg

They had a small area in the back of the pool with a waterfall and this area is very shallow and not for swimming.

PC190899 (2).jpg

The towel "exchange" area is right across from the family pool and the kiddie water park. Although it says "exchange only" on it, they would also take your room number (given to them verbally and not with a key card) and write down on a paper how many towels you checked out. HOWEVER, this system is flawed if they are trying to keep track of the towels. For one, they don't verify your room number or if you even gave them the right number. Another thing is, when you turn in the towels, they never checked your name off. Yet another thing, when you are coming back from port, they have an area before you get on the ship that you can offload your wet towels (not get new ones) and then go back up and get dry ones from the pool area. There's no way for anyone to know how many you have out or in. Kinda weird if you ask me.

PC190904-L.jpg

Kiddie Waterpark

 

They stepped up their game from all of the other ships I have been on. It's still not as extensive as Carnival's waterpark on a lot of their ships, but it's better than NCL's previous areas for the kids.

Market Place

 

This area, which runs between the kids area and the adult pool area, is used during certain days of the cruise and has pool and beach items like sunscreen, beach toys, sunglasses, and so on. However, I did not see it open one day during our cruise. (It does get pretty windy in that area because it sometimes works as a breezeway when the ship is moving).

There is a stage by the pool and live bands will play here.

PC190913 (2).jpg

There's also 2 hot tubs in this area. I believe they are adult and children because every time I looked, I always seen kids in them. If you want an adult only hot tub, you can go to the back in H20.

PC190914 (2).jpg

There are ping pong tables in this area as well.

Garden Cafe

 

I apologize in advance, I didn't manage to get any pictures of the actual seating area in the buffet. There always seemed to be people there and at other times, I just plain forgot. Oops. Mitsugirly failure.

They do have several actual hand washing stations when you enter the dining area

NCL has a great system and on your key card you will find your "number" listed for your photos. You simply go to that folder and pull it out on the turn rack and you'll find all the pictures they have taken for you during your cruise.

 

Close up of the turn tables here in the yellow section.

Humidor Cigar Lounge

 

You can purchase cigars here as well. It is located right beside the Tobacco Road bar area.

PC190943 copy (2).jpg
PC190944 copy (2).jpg

Now there was a sign up saying that it was for cigars only and no cigarettes or vapes allowed. I'm not sure if that's just this ship or things have changed fleet wide since August because the Breakaway didn't say that.

Tobacco Road Bar

 

This place was ALWAYS crowded when they were open. I don't know why this was the happening place to be. I even found a couple that went in there to read a book and I don't know how they could even concentrate because it's so loud there.

O'SHEEHAN'S BAR & GRILL

 

This is an Irish pub type of place to get draft beer, comfort foods like fish n' chips, shepherd's pie, hamburgers & fries, nacho's, wings and so on. It is open 24 hours a day and a great sit down little restaurant. I just love this place. It's the one thing that puts NCL a step above the other cruise lines I sail with. You're not stuck with just eating deli sandwiches or pizza when everything else is closed.

 

I didn't really get a chance to take pictures of this restaurant because...since it's open 24/7 there's always people in there. It's located on both sides and a huge sit down restaurant on one side and bar type tables and chairs on the other side. You are served food at both.

 

Then they have an entire area with games like skeet ball, pool, darts, air hockey, bowling and so on. Cool place to hang out at and have some fun. You can also sit at the tables around the edge of the glass that overviews the atrium area down below that they play music, play games and so on.

MANHATTAN ROOM

 

One of the 3 main dining rooms.

 

They have a huge dance floor and a stage for a band. However, I noticed on this ship, half of the dance floor had tables and chairs on it. I guess they don't do the dancing there anymore?
