We have only sailed on NCL once before, a short 3 day cruise from Miami to the Bahamas ten tears ago. Please let us know what to expect cruising the Western Caribbean on the NCL Dream out of New Orleans this Christmas ? We are travelling with 20+ members of our family, and all have recently cruised with Princess. We love Princess, and would like to know all about the differences. Please let us know about NCL's "Free Style" vs. Princess' "Personal Choice" dinning. How's the food quality ? Any formal nights on a 7 day cruise ? Are there alternative restaurants from the main dining room(s) ? Any extra charges ? Also, how are the cabins, shows, pools, jacuzzis etc ? Salt or Fresh water ? Pools or Jacuzzis open late ?
Any comments from CC members who have recently cruised on both lines would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all !
Until we're cruising again,
