Some cruise lines will amend their normal practices or rules when a single group or organization books the entire ship for a cruise. I've heard of nudist groups doing this on smaller cruise ships, and the cruise lines have agreed to allow nude sunbathing. Unless you and your friends want to pay for every cabin on board, though, NCL is not likely to allow public displays of nudity on board. The short answer, then, is no.

Can we book a tee time to golf on Bermuda?

We know there are two great golf courses on Bermuda. Can we book a tee time through the ship?

Check the shore excursions available in Bermuda through NCL. You'll find the link on NCL's website. Since the ship is docked in Bermuda for 3 days, you may be able to get better deals if you make your own reservation directly with the golf course.

I don't believe there are any ship sponsored golf shore excursions so you will have to book your tee time on your own as well as arrange your own transportation to/from the golf course.

Just as checking in at the airport, the bags go through x-ray detectors. You also have to walk through a metal detector. If required, the bags may be opened for further inspection.

All luggage is xrayed either as carry on or checked. In checked luggage, if they see something they have questions about, they will hold your luggage and summon you to open it.

It depends on which disembarkation time slot you are assigned. Assuming you are allowed to leave just at 8:00 AM, you will have to walk to the taxi stand, then travel through morning rush hour traffic to the airport. It could be after 9:00 when you get there. You should allow at least a hour for ticketing and security check, so that puts you at your gate at about 10:00. Boarding begins about 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time, so 10:30 is the absolute earliest you could expect to leave, and that's cutting it close and assuming everything goes according to plan. Personally, I wouldn't book a return flight before noon, and probably not before 2:00 PM if the ship is slated to arrive in New Orleans at 8:00 AM.

Suite guests followed by passengers walking off with their luggage are the first to disembark. Remaining passengers disembark in 20-30 minute intervals, based on the time slot they chose a day or two before return, beginning about 30-45 minutes after return to port. Usually the ship is cleared of all passengers within 2-3 hours of return to port.

Short answer is that if you walk off with your luggage you should be off the ship an hour after scheduled return then add time for travel to airport, airport check-in/security and about an hour for delays and that should be the earliest time to book a flight home.

Yes, reservations can be changed. Log into "My NCL" and click on "View Reservation" for your cruise. Follow the links to the section for dining and entertainment to select the restaurant, night, and time you desire. If the system locks you out, it may be that the Teppanyaki restaurant already is fully booked. If you have difficulty booking because of duplicate reservations, just contact your NCL Cruise Consultant by phone to get things changed.

You cannot cancel or change the specialty dinner reservations online. I suggest calling NCL (1.866.234.7350) and having them change it. The other option is to change it onboard the ship.

NCL has confirmed that the Super Bowl will be televised on all of their ships. You may not be able to view the game on your stateroom TV, but it will be shown on one or more big screens in a bar, the atrium, or some other public area. Check the "Freestyle Daily" newsletter on board for more details and to see if any special drink or menu items will be offered.

If you have the SDP you can have unlimited food in each of these restaurants except for extra entree's. There is a $10 for extra entree's. Beverage package covers all venues on the ship, both bars and restaurants.

The Ultimate Beverage Package covers drinks in bars as well as restaurants. Ala carte pricing in some of the specialty restaurants is a recent change. As I understand it, those who have chosen the Ultimate Dining Package may select one appetizer, one main dish, and one dessert each of the three nights at no charge. If you choose a second appetizer, such as soup and salad, or a second dessert, you will be charged extra. Certain premium main course items also may incur an additional charge.

the view outside Oceanview is blocked by the ship's structure. For the majority of the staterooms, mainly on deck 8, the view is blocked by the lifeboats.
