The check in we had , was not the norm, since, the people on this cruise are only on for 2 days, so eveyone had carry ons..no porters anywhere.. All the duty free shops are open, and stocked with goodies, including gloves, scarves, etc for the NY cruises to come..now that was funny to see ...
I will post the pix, within the next day or two....today we saw the crew in winter jackets, boots and gloves, pressure spraying the snow on the pool deck...they also were tossing it over the side and into the pool!
By the elevators, there are informational screens with current wait times, and restaurants that may be taking reservations....This is such a brilliant move on NCL's part...I did see beepers at the stations, but didn't see anyone walking around with one.
I will say, that if you are booked on the Gem, I think you will fall in love. More to come, I promise
Trip, with her book & tea!
