Be sure you make reservations early. Get to know the ship and where you'll want to be before you board, as activities you discover while onboard might be booked up by time you learn about them. Also, visit the telescopes on Deck 8!

Make sure to book your dining reservation and show reservations first thing when you get on the ship. They usually will use the improv for dining reservations and Syd Norman pourhouse for the entertainment reservations.

All NCL ships have a laundry special, whatever you can stuff into a laundry bad will be cleaned, pressed, folded and returned to your room the next day for $29. There will be a flyer about it in the Freestyle Daily some time in the middle of the cruise, this will help decrease the amount of clothes you need to pack. When you go to bed, leave the sliding door on one of the closets open. The light is on a motion detector, so if you get up in the night to use the bathroom, the light will come on, when you go back to bed, it will come on again and shut off after a few minutes. As I mentioned before, make sure to reserve specialty dining and theater shows as soon as possible, the venues are too small and will sell out.

Book entertainment, activities and specialty dining immediately after boarding the ship. Cannot stress this enough as many people missed shows, or couldn't participate in activities or go to the specialty restaurant of choice because it was already booked.

Do not book, if you have any mobility issues, like to meet other cruisers, are a smoker. The ship definitely discourages smoking, only place allowed on deck 18, no elevator, no bathrooms no tables no chairs, no shade,no bar and spotty bar service. If you tip they will come. Our group dragged loungers to sit on after 6pm they took them away standing only.
