  1. Same thing happened to us. I thought it was first week problems. Sorry to hear it’s still happening.
  2. Try reserving ahead by calling NCL. I heard a lot of folks were able to reserve shows and dinner houses ahead of time. We did, but almost all of our reservations were changed when we got on the ship. That might have been because it was the first public sailing, though. We went to the box office to get it sorted out and all was ok. BTW, be sure to download the NCL app before you sail. You can also make reservations there while on the cruise.
  3. The comedy shows were pretty good. We enjoyed them. The opening act was pretty much the same for each one. Make sure you reserve them when you get on board at one of the kiosks (midship) or at the box office (deck six forward).
  4. That almost sounds creepy. 😉 I we both wore Skechers (not waterproof). Mine were hiking shoes, which were better than regular tennis shoes. Glad you like the review. 😀
  5. I wouldn’t call it a disadvantage. You get to see the land side when you return. 😄
  6. The crab was served in the buffet the second night of the cruise. Not sure if they offered it in the MDRs.
  7. It’s a small buffet. Really good and quick croissant egg sandwiches, but it’s cold up there. On excursion days we would order coffee the night before from room service and then I would run up and get a couple sandwiches while my wife was getting ready.
  8. Oh, another thing. I forgot to bring my binoculars with me on the cruise. Doh! So I bought a really nice pair of Nikon Prostaff S3 10x42 binoculars onboard from the photo shop for $129.95. Even though I was sure that I was being fleeced, I checked the price on Amazon when I was in port in Juneau and was pleasantly surprised that they were the same price there, plus tax. There actually CAN be some good deals found onboard! Too bad that I left them at The Local and were long gone when I came back for them 15 minutes later. 😞 At least it was on the last night.
  9. I just realized that I only scanned the back of Day 1, which shows embarkation restaurant times. Here's the back of Day 2, which is the same as all the rest.
  10. Pier 66 doesn’t have a lot of room for cabs or rideshare, but it was easy enough to pick up. Just outside the terminal head to your right toward Anthony’s. We use Lyft and it was easy. Same thing heading from SeaTac to Pier 66. It’s about a 25 minute drive with traffic.
  11. We didn’t use it, but I was told the next time folks see their luggage is on the carousel at their destination.
  12. Here is some more embarkation and disembarkation information. I'm a pack rat. 😉 We had our bags outside our cabin about 12:30am. Not a problem. There were other bags out in the hallway, too. Something to note, we couldn't hear the onboard announcements from our room when the door was closed and they don't announce well, if at all, on the TV in the cabin. We always had to open the door to hear them. That's also true about Glacier Bay. A park ranger came on board and described what we were seeing over the PA starting around 8AM. We missed a lot of that.
  13. The dailies I uploaded near the top of this thread list dining options for Day 1. The Local shows open at 11:00am.
