I need information on
1. what to pack ? I just don't want to over pack.
2. do they offer dance lessons which I need?
3. what to look forward to with being on the first flight and a ocean cruise?
4. what plug in does the airline use for a dc power source?
As far as what to wear, remember that NCL has no mandatory formal nights. Not many people wear suits or long gowns, but if you like dressing up a little, you will not feel out of place. The MDR and one of the specialty restaurants requires long pants and a collared shirt, close toed shoes. Khakis or jeans are acceptable. You can wear shorts in any of the others. NCL has lots of specialty dining venues, with cover charges of $15 to $30 pp. If your budget allows, you might want to budget some money for two or three. I highly recommend the steaks at Cagneys, $30 and Moderno ( Brazillian Churrascaria ), $20. And do not miss the salad bar on the latter!
I highly recommend you sign up for a Roll Call for your cruise. You can look for one here, and if none, you can start one. Also you can google Norwegian Roll Calls and that will take you to a site where you can find your ship and sail date.
It is a great way to get introduced to other people on your cruise before you even sail, plan excursions and ship board meet and greets, usually held the first sea day after embarkation.
P.S. Take some Bonine with you, or similar seasickness meds, just in case.
