Can crew visit with passengers in cabins?
My boyfriend works on a NCL ship and some family, friends, and I have planned a cruise on it. It will be a surprise for him.

Will he be able to visit our/my cabins? Can this be easily done or do we need to call NCL beforehand? Who should we speak with to arrange this. Not sure what the procedure is. Thank you.

not sure if the procedure is the same on ncl as carnival, but for us, if we as a crewmember have family/friends cruising, there's a permission form filled in and signed by the staff captain and chief security officer, so that they know why we are in a guest cabin. it's usually straightforward, but make sure it's all filled in by him before you go, as there could be problems otherwise.

Since cruise ships are cruise ships I would not show up without telling him, that could cause a lot of embarrassment.

Good point Origo, I could tell you stories....

Anyway - yes, do tell him you plan on coming or you may be disappointed in what you find out. It would be a pretty miserable cruise for you if you got there and found out he was engaged to someone else, right?

Just by telling him you are coming you will find out how serious he is.
