Recently on the NCL Wind the bar closed a lot earlier than we all left-which was 5am one morning and 3 am the last night of the cruise. Basically, we all hated that it was going to be over. I think it was closing a lot earlier on the shore days since everyone was wiped out from being tourists. Then we had 6 sea days(nites) and the bars got a LOT more active. They TRY to close earlier. . .good luck!
