  1. You can call, or just make your reservations on myNCL.com. We only called when we had a large party (more than 6); otherwise we made our reservations on NCL. If they don't have the time you want, you can also change it once you get on the ship. They usually have cancellations/changes. Have a great time!
  2. As others have said, I don't think it will be a problem for lunch, and probably not for dinner if they are not really raggedy. That said, they did ask my husband to remove his cap for breakfast on a morning we were headed outside. Not a big deal, but surprised since it was breakfast and many people were in shorts and beach cover ups. I guess it just depends on the person at the door.
  3. There is a $7 pp upcharge for people with the UDP, but nobody in our party (10) thought is was worth even that. Very poor selection, unless you really love oysters and shellfish, except lobster or crab, which is not on the new menu. It used to be on the old menu. Appetizers were very good, but the fish entree was very bland (had better in the Garden Cafe), and 3 people in our party found the scallops inedible. I would never even think about going back. We have lived in So Fla for 30 years, so are very spoiled by fresh seafood, and nothing on their menu was up to par.
  4. We enjoyed Le Bistro, as we do on all of NCL cruises. Probably my favorite. La Cucina was surprisingly good after hearing bad reviews - not upscale Italian, but well prepared and a decent selection. We usually like Cagney's, but were not impressed on the Bliss. I usually order a porterhouse, but it was literally less than 1/2" thick, so they could not reasonably cook it to medium rare, and anyone who enjoys steak knows a thin steak is just not juicy, even when cooked rare. First time I had to send something back. Others had the prime rib and filet, and they were happy. They also did away with the bone-in ribeye, and the substitution was not nearly as good. Unless you REALLY like oysters, avoid Ocean Blue. The selection was minimal (no lobster or crab on Alaska cruise?). The mussels and clams we had as appetizers were very good, but the fish dish was bland and non-distinct. Service was so-so. I expected MUCH better for a restaurant with a cover charge. Would never waste my money to go back. We had better seafood on the buffet. Others in our party loved Los Lobos (for the guacamole) and Teppenyaki, but nobody tried Q
