We had such a good cruise this time, I filled out several compliment cards about half way through the trip. Our steward, the coffee bar staff, a waitress, and one more thanking NCL for providing a great vacation. Well, the next night we get a message from the Hotel Director, Nelson. He would like to meet us for coffee. When I call him back, he said he would like to rectify the issues as soon as possible. " rectify the issues?" I think you have the wrong person I said. We're having a great time. He asks if he can call us back later. Anyway, we meet for coffee the next day and we discuss how much we enjoy NCL, the staff, the food, the convenience of sailing out of NY, etc. Next thing you know, he's inviting us ( and our friends ) to dine with the Captain! Holy Crap !!!!!! We didn't know what to say, other than, we were supposed to have dinner at Cagneys that evening. Well, that was cancelled and we received our invitations. Now, I know you can pay to have dinner with the Captain, but to be invited was truly an honour. We sat next to Nelsons assistant, who was also really cool. Her husband used to work on the ship, but now he stays home tending to business and taking care of their child. There were 8 of us, other than the Captain and ( ???? Deborah ). The Captain was very engaging as far as conversation went. The meal was excellent, and we had a great time. Photo op, and it was delivered to our cabin the next day. Definitely the coolest thing that has happened to us in our cruising history. And it came out of nowhere !
See, it's easy to complain, but being nice, attracts more attention.
