I think NCL decorates the cruise just before Christmas and then the New Years one, We were on the New Years eve one last year and the decorations were largely gone before we got off............But they are so pretty, all the differant tree's and the lights! I bet she will be decorated more fully this weekend? Oh, I am only three weeks away, we are all getting excited now, its really coming close! I am just so happy to have so many loved ones with us this cruise, this is wonderful. I never anticipated so many would end up wanting to come with us...........It is just fun and nice!
