Never sailed with NCL either, but the same holds true with them . Our recent Celebrity Bermuda cruise was shared in port with NCL and there were many NCL logo towels at the beach.

As you suggest, I have always understood on ships where the doors could be opened it was at the Captain's discretion at the request of the two stateroom's passengers. I have not heard of any recent...

RCI allows smoking outdoors on one side on the pool and promenade decks, along with a section of the casino, on every one of their ships. So, yes, it would apply to Freedom as well. The only thing...

There is no need to have money or credit cards with you on board out of your stateroom, so that concern should be moot. As to your cruise card, at the pool on board the cruise card is of no value to...
