I just booked my first NCL Cruise! We will be on The Majesty Sept. 6th to Bermuda! I have avoided this ship for quite some time due to its size and age...I hope I am pleasently surprised (Like I was last year with RCCL Empress of The Seas!).
We leave out of Philly at 4:00 p.m. Does anyone know what is the latest time for boarding? We live in Ohio and are debating leaving early (real early) in the morning and driving through on the day of sailing.
A couple of questions for those of you who are experienced with NCL...Am I correct--there is NO formal night even for a 7 day cruise? And, is it true that they no longer give the "Dine Ashore" vouchers?
Since it is "Free-Style" dining, is there still a "lido" type deck with food buffets? (How do you handle gratuties for your wait staff with the Freestyle dining?)
I know that's lots of questions...any help would be great.
