Here are a couple specific questions that I have:
The ship sails out of NYC, what time do you suggest we get to the port? we would like to get on as soon as possible.
It seems that all of the specialty restaurants charge a fee so I'm planning for us to just go to the main dinning room. Do we need to make reservations for this restaurant too?
Does anyone know about the shows that might be performed on a 1-night cruise? are there different shows going on in different venues? And if there are no set dinning times, how do they work out show times?
Does NCL allow you to bring a bottle of wine onboard with you?
Bowling - since there are only 4 lanes, do you make reservations to play?
Rock climbing wall? Since the cruise is in January, will this be open? If so, is there a fee?
Are there any must see/must do activities while onboard?
What time does debarkation happen? I think we are going to get dropped off at the Port and picked up so I want to try and set up a time.
Thanks for all the help and if there are anything else you can think of I should know about the Gem, please let me know.
