Great Job!!!!!

I enjoy reading your cruise reports and I'm not just kissing your moose rear.

I am also becoming a convert to Freestyle cruising. You made two quotes that I have concur with:

I totally agree: NCL does the best at managing traffic flow. The only exception was in main dining room on the Norwegian Star. The people who wanted to be the first to be there when it opened backed up into the pub area.

This is the same advice I give everyone sailing on NCL. It is the best way to get the maximum enjoyment out of the cruise. If you do this you will have a cruise experience that will rival the cruising on a luxury line at mass market prices.

I hope you enjoy your Testicularion excursion. I'm looking forward to more reports.
