Entertainment Reservations.

Recommended Posts

It is unfortunate that the opportunity to enjoy the offerings on a cruise can be tied to economics. Each individual reserves often on what they can afford and usually choose vacations on their port locations and the best bang for their buck. That's why the INCLUDED options can help make a choice. Hopefully Norwegian won't go the route of Disney where loyal guests are edged out of popular choices due to their ability to pay for higher end accommodations and/or frequent traveling. How elitist will even the simple joys in life become?

@exit63nj It can be unfortunate, but it's quite a true statement for most industries. Just because you have a limited budget, doesn't mean that you can't have a wonderful cruise experience. I agree that identifying the included amenities is a great way to review and assess the overall cost and experience of any cruise itinerary.  Could you expand on how Disney Cruise Line has edged out some of its popular choices? Disney Cruise Line is already very expensive as it is!

What is your preferred cruise line? I'm always on the hunt for a good sailing price. It's the only way I can squeeze annual cruises into my budget.

@exit63nj I found some information about what you are referring to. https://www.cruisehive.com/norwegian-cruise-line-begins-pre-cruise-entertainment-reservations/94040

I also noticed that Platinum guests get the first pick to reserve the entertainment shows. That's truly such a shame. I don't think we are the only ones that feel this way.

Not all cruise guests, especially first timers, are going to know about this change and may miss out on the entertainment completely. I would imagine the entertainment shows will basically book up fully prior to embarkation. I'm so accustomed to reserving the entertainment shows once on board; I don't think many guests are going to appreciate this change.

@CaptAng It is a good perk, but you definitely have to be proactive in booking the cruise and the entertainment options. Based on your experience, do you think there is enough space for everyone to pre-book entertainment? Or do you think some guests won't have the opportunity to experience entertainment onboard? Also, are there assigned seats for the onboard entertainment? I'm so used to just booking once onboard, I'm very intrigued by how this process is going to be received amongst all of NCL's cruise guests with different loyalty statuses.
