Default 2.0 Freestyle cruising questions

Hi,
I am cruising on the Dawn in November and I was wondering if anyone has experienced the 2.0 style? I have a balcony room, and I was wondering if anyone received the champagne upon boarding the ship, also did you have the robe in the cabin, or did you have to ask for it? In the past I always had a robe on all Princess cruisess no matter what stateroom I had, but I was just on the NCL Sun with a balcony room and I asked about a robe, but they said they didn't have them. How about food? Restaurants? I hope to hear from someone or someones.
Thanks,
Christy

Christy, I can't answer all your questions, but everyone I have talked to did get the champagne upon boarding, I also think you will get the robes or can ask for them. When were you on the Sun? The food is improved I have heard with Lobster being served twice: once, Lobster Tails like when back when and the second time the Lobster, seafood combo which, BTW we had on the Star last fall and thought it was very good.

Hope this helps a little, I am sure others will come forward and answer all your questions.

Nita,
Thank you for answering one of my questions. I am surprised that I haven't had any reply's regarding these questions. (besides yours)
I really don't mind about the champagne, because I am alergic to alcohol, but I really enjoy the robe after a shower.
I am hoping that it is already in the room.
Thanks again,
Christy

You'll definitely experience the 2.0 upgrades on the Dawn.

I sailed the Dawn in 2007 and really enjoyed the ship. I was just on the Jade in the spring, when they introduced Freestyle 2.0, and I can tell you the food was very good, as was the expanded entertainment program.

I really enjoy the NCL poolside barbeques that they do on embarkation day, and most port days.

I'm not a bathrobe person, so truly can't remember if there was robes hanging in the closet or not.

When we are back from our cruise in September, all your 2.0 questions will get an answer!

I will write a review and I will write everything I can think on about Freestyle 2.0.

You get the Champagine when boarding, a snack in the room, that NCL keeps filling, cookies on the last night of cruise, aong other things as part of NCL 2.0

Since you're in a balcony cabin the robe should be there. I think they're being offered because people on land saw us out on our balcony and complained!

Mr. Lee,
Thank you so much for the early morning laugh...... That is so funny. Because my imagination is totally going through the roof thinking about what you looked like on the balcony. Though on my last NCL cruise we were watching a version of the newlywed and not so newlywed game, and the crowd was shocked to learn that the couple who had been married 40 years had sex on their balcony, OMG. The husband said it of course, and the wife just went red as a lobster. I had no idea that the balcony could be used for so many different things. I just want the robe to put on after I get out of the shower and while I am getting ready. Princess cruises always supplied the robes, and we only had a window. And my last NCL cruise last March, we had a balcony and when I asked the steward for a robe he said they didn't have any. So, I am just hoping that this new 2.0 with robes for all balcony and up cabins is true.
Again, mrlee, thank you for the visual......
