$5 per person per game including shoes. How long depends on how many are playing the same game since each person goes in order each frame. with four people each getting at least 20 rolls at the pins plus the time to return the ball it should take around 30-40 minutes unless you talk and laugh a lot between turns
Thanks so much, sounds fun. Not sure about the charge, NCL charges for so much!
That is because they have some many options. You can avoid all of the extras if you want and have the same options as any other line. A couple of main dining rooms, the buffet, several "fast" food options and even rock wall climbing which has no extra charge.
If bowling and the Bistro were free we would never get a chance to use them.
Right, well I recently cruised NCL and I did really enjoy my cruise for sure and have my parents booked on an upcoming NCL . I did find for sure though NCL was more promotional than the norm of other cruise lines, the Monte Carlo night I only stayed a few minutes, just a series of promotions, the towel animal with a flyer about a towel animal book attatched, RCI just does the towels every night , the saunas are only in the thermal suite, the raffle tickets pre-show in the theatre being walked around with, many display cases of products throughout, poolside casino etc. I enjoyed my cruise very much don't get me wrong they do have a unique style but compared to RCI & others for sure more promotional of onboard rev I felt and have read others.

I agree NCL does present more oppurtunies to extra cash from us. The lobby is most often like a flea market Their profit model is more focused on onboard revenue thus the normally lower fares then RCCL. The good news we don't have to buy all the stuff.
I am sure that you can bring your own equipment if you don't mind carrying the extra weight with you.
When we bowled the ship was very steady and there were flat seas. Therefore, there was no effect on the bowling performance. I am sure that in high seas, there could be some problems.
Note: when the ship is in port, they usually reduce the price by 50%. There are usually very few people partaking unless it is rainging outside. We bowled a few games one afternoon and the attendant actually told us to bowl another set for free.
