I'm curious if NCL does anything special on cruises during Cinco de Mayo? It may depend on itinerary. Any special food, drinks, parties, activities, etc?

There may very well be a themed party on board, but they will not have a special menu in the dining room.

In fact, if you want good Mexican food on NCL, get off the ship in Mexico!

Unfortunately it falls on a Saturday this year - meaning it's either the sea day or disembark/embark day - so not too sure if they will have anything to celebrate aboard the NCL ships cruising in Caribbean.
