This is only my 2nd time on NCL, I usually cruise on Royal Caribbean (11), Carnival (4) and Disney (1), but from everthing I have read it looks like a very kid friendly ship. I think the freestyle dining will work great with kids. If you have any questions please let me know and I will try to answer.
I hope to meet you on the ship. I know my son will be hooked too! He is nervous right now because he has never done anything like this. I think it sounds great for kids. I wonder though if they ever let 12 year olds join in with the next age group? But if they don't he is still going to have a blast. I read that it is best to not book excursions before hand because they are cheaper if you don't but then I also read that if you don't they book up fast. We don't plan on doing too much off the boat but a couple things maybe. What is your idea on that. I also am looking into a way to get to NY pier without my truck because the parking there is outragious! I'll be looking forward to meeting you
