I've never been on NCL so I was curious how dinner works. Do we need to make a reservation at one of the dining rooms or do we just show up? I know the Le Bistro costs a little extra, so is that some place we need to make a reservation if we want to go there? I've sailed many times, but I'm just not sure how the freestyle dining works exactly. Thanks for explaining. ;-)
You do not need to make reservations at the two main dining rooms, Seven Seas and Four Seasons, just go when you want to. You have the option of sitting with others or by yourselves. If you want reservations at the specialty resturants, make them as soon as possible, as they fill up fast. There is ususally a table for Le Bistro set up close to the customer service desk which takes reservations soon after you board.
