Inauguration cruise

Has anyone ever been on a NCL inauguration cruise? Is there special things not to miss? Do we get special items for being on that trip?

I read today that Kelly Clarkson is the honorary Godmother of the Encore and will perform at the christening ceremony in Miami in November. Not sure if she will be on board or perform on the ship though. I'm sure there will be some kind of celebration with the crew and staff in the main lobby at some point.

Which inaugural cruise will you be on? the 17th or the 21st? The team will be on the first one, and we were also on the NCL Joy American inaugural earlier this year. Nothing super special, except that all specialty restaurants, activities, and drinks that usually cost money are included. We'll probably get some kind of commemorative item at the end but I'm sure it's not the same every time. On Joy it was a tumbler cup.

Will have to check this recent vessel out on youtube just to get a look.
