NCL MDR Dinner Times

Hi. I know NCL has 'Freestyle Dining'. What I am curious about is last serving time for dinner in the MDR.


I ask because one of my ports - Santorini - sail away is 10pm. I'd like to watch sail away and then eat dinner. Do you think this would be possible? If not how about the speciality dining establishments? Are they open later? I'd rather not do Buffet or Blue Lagoon for dinner.


Cheers folks

Near as I can tell they quit serving dinner at 10:00 PM. Meaning that will be too early for you to enjoy sail away. As much as I love sail aways and Santorini, it is probably going to be quite dark there and not a lot to see. Are you going to have a balcony? If so, good time to consider room service.

I agree with Kennicott.  It will be too late for dinner.  Many times ships are delayed leaving the port for various reasons.  Enjoy your cruise.

Nope no balcony, just an outside. Hmm I thought as much. I might try to see the sunset from the ship then (depending on when sunset is, anyone know if there is a way to find out the approx sunset time on any given day?) and then go to dinner. So possibly be down to dinner for say 9pm. I presume that'd be ok
