Although my wife and I have never sailed NCL we have sailed RCCL and they have there Christmas decorations up well before Christmas and keep them up into the beginning of January. I would assume that NCL does the same.

Sailed on NCL the second week of December for the past two years. There were Christmas decorations everywhere.
The crew of the Pearl even sang Christmas songs in the Garden Cafe on the last morning of our cruise.
Our first cruise was on NCL's Seaward in December 1989. They had the decorations up then. We've done several other non-Christmas December cruises on Royal Caribbean, Holland America and Princess. I think all of the cruise lines start decorating the cruise after Thanksgiving if possible.
We had great decorations on Disney Fantasy last year including a kid sized gingerbread house.

Does anyone know if the decals that stick on windows will stick to the cabin doors, would like to use some over Christmas. Also have some battery operated lights can we use them on the balony and in the room? Thanks for any replies.
Very nice. Thanks for posting. Looks like she had a great time!
We always have a great time. Christmas time just gives us that little extra something to do with our pictures. (That reminds me I need to go find my Santa hat for this upcoming Christmas cruise. I think this time I may take a few little decorations for the room too).
