Hey Nita, glad to hear about your house. We'll keep our fingers crossed for ya'.
As for NCL vs NCLA - I was pleasantly surprised. After reading so many bad reviews I was prepared for the sorse but it was okay. The American crew makes for a little different experience. Not bad necessarily, just different. The biggest complaint, slow dining room service and a feeling of nobody being in charge. I don't know that we ever finished a meal with the same server we started out with. Often times, orders were confused or somebody thought we had been taken care of when we hadn't. But it wasn't too bad. Also, the desserts were not very impressive

Also there was only one dining area open from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. and it wasn't a buffet. It was the Cadillac diner and impossible to get into. We learned to either grab about onshore or at least a munchie to hold us over til dinner.

The ship itself was fine. Easy to get around on. We missed Hilo because of a late departure and the Coast Guard would nnot clear us for a late
arrival but since it was the first day we all needed a sea day and the capt.
took us through a whale sanctuary area all day and we saw lots of whales and had a great time.

NCL has a new procedure for comment cards - they email them to you when you get home. I got mine today. I think this is a good thing.

More later - gotta' go surf prices for Hawaii in 09 8)
