I love it. This $10 issue is going to chase away many frugal cruisers and leave more room on NCL Ships in future. NCL has been far too successful so far in filling their ships. Every trip I take with them is too crowded - especially with the ankle-biters. I really hope and expect that I will have a lot more fun on their ships in future as a result of this policy. If it works out ot be the case, $10 per day is a small price to pay for satisfaction and enjoyment.
Now if they will only start something like this on airplanes. Then I wouldn`t have to spend a fortune to buy my way into Business Class to avoid the crowds.
