Good luck on your cruise. We sailed in May on the Pride of America and couldn't have been more upset. There is no such thing as "freestyle dining" on this ship. 2-3 hour diners were the norm, and the service was horrible. Cold food and miscooked food was guaranteed. After many talks with management, they admitted that the ship has routinely saled with only 50% of the needed food staff. This was my 6th NCL cruise and I'll never sail with them again.
I have file a lawsuit against NCL. I would love to hear your comments after you sail.
