We one of four couples in group. A few questions were asked that I thought I knew the answers but wanted to verify before I told them.

1.There are no set eating times, such as 6pm for some and 8pm for others as on Carnival right?

2. In the main dining area, do they have tables that will seat 8 people? From the pics I saw , max is 6 per table, which is fine with us. They're newbee's and family. We old cruisers, love to dine by ourselves by the windows.

3. On the 1 or 2 "dress up" nights, would good jeans be allowed? I told them bring a pair of slacks. I know dress up nights are not what they imply although I see folks wearing long evening gouwns, suit /ties, tux's, even on Carnival. Sorry not my bag.

4. One couple asked about the meet & greet event.How do you sign up?

What ship are you asking about?

answer to my questions.

Sorry, The NORWEIGN DAWN. 7 FEB 2019

1 - Correct. If you want a guaranteed time any given night, though, you can make reservations but it's only for that particular night.

2 - I'm not sure, usually there are tables for eight but I've never sailed that particular ship.

3 - It seems like that is true according to this link https://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/prepare-for-your-cruise/what-to-pack

4 - I'm not sure, hopefully someone else can help with this.

Been on quite a few NCL ships over the years including yours.. Dine when you want, but later in the evening theres likely to be a short wait in the MDR (s) One thing to watch out for...if you have show tix, and dine too late, you wont make the show...even late ones...dining can take longer than you think, allowing for a large group...and the ship can be bigger than you think.. Dress?...casual..unfortunately, theres not much of an envelope to push anymore. We clean up for dinner...slax, clean shirt...she likes to "dress just a little" don't ask me to define that...table for eight? sure they can, Ive seen it...but it would be advisable to let the maître d know in advance...take a few minutes and stop off at the restaurant (mdr or specialty) and speak to them. I'm sure they'd accommodate you. I cant possibly remember how many such tops were already in place...so its worth making sure..(and they'd appreciate it...) meet n greet?...they're listed on the dailies you get the nite b4 in your cabin...and you can get a copy for the first day asa you step on board...don't need to "sign up"...just go...theres always fluid refreshments, to grease the wheels so to speak...enjoy!!!

As for wearing jeans on "dress up" nights. Depends on the ship and the person seating you. In most cases they will allow it but I have heard of people being turned away with jeans. I have also seen some pretty disreputable jeans in the MDR on "dress up" night.

I believe the only places they really enforce a dress code are at Specialty Dining and even at those the dress code is not strictly enforced.

just chiming in on one question. please don't wear jeans on formal night! nice pants at the minimum! its so much more fun when everyone is dressed to the nines. i don't understand why people attend looking like junk.
