Don’t, just don’t
Don’t, just don’t
Book excursions early because they fill up fast sometimes
Tip early not in the end to get even better service tip the stewart, find your favorite bar give him a 20 and eat h how you are the VIP over the other cruisers
Make sure to have plenty of money on your ship card. NCL has lots of “fees”. And if you smoke, don’t expect to sit in the very small smoking area and relax. All you will get is a bunch of rude and loud drunk people. Passing out, falling, puking. The pool area is very small and the bar staff does not walk around for your drinks so lines are super long. Get 2 or 3 at a time!
Book specialty restaurants in advance
Beautiful ship with so much to see and do. Take advantage of all of the activities and dining options. Pay close attention to the “freestyle daily” which is the daily newsletter with the schedule of events and do everything you can! Book show reservations early and if your port has tender boats, book those early too!!
I thought January was supposed to still be warm and sunny, but not always on our cruise. But the ship handled the rough waters quite well when they happened.
Have fun and patience.
If you want to swim in a pool while on board, don’t take Norwegian
Choose a different ship.
If then are tendering on a port of call, schedule this early. I didn't realize they needed scheduled. I happened to be an early riser, and noticed it on an interactive screen. By early morning three tender boats where already full.
Book special dining ahead of time. We did not make it to Cagney’s Steak House or Ocean Blue because they were completely booked the whole cruise. This was our first Norwegian cruise and thought we could get in to eat here. NOPE!!
Take some magnet hooks. Walls and doors are metal. Our wall hooks held anywhere.
Book your speciality dinings in advance
Relax and enjoy yourself
Large ship with many people. Practice kindness and patience and you will have a great time.
Not enough seating to see shows & demonstrations in the atrium. Use theater
