Yes, there are dogs there. Also, as reported on another board, NCL is notorious about banning alcohol brought for personal use on board. I don't drink that much so I never attempted to smuggle alcohol on board. I have cruised both NCL and RCCL and on NCL is seems to board so much smoother. No long lines. . . Make sure you preregister on the NCL homepage, and you should be checked in within a matter of minutes.
