You will be able to sign a waiver for the issue & her seapass card will be swiped to that effect to save any embarrassment at the bars. I'm afraid your choice of cruise line for formal dress however is not a good one as NCL have the most relaxed dress code of the four star lines, certainly no where close to P&O. The majority of people choose NCL for that very reason...Wilba.

The is to some extent a slight change with dress wear see the last sentence "NCL Freestyle Cruising gives you the freedom to dress as you please. Smart casual attire is always appropriate; the only restrictions are no shorts, t-shirts and bathing costumes in restaurants after 5:30 pm (in buffet restaurants or restaurants in outside areas, shorts are permitted). Apart from one designated restaurant, presentable jeans are permitted in all dining venues. If you like to dress up, there is one designated restaurant per ship with a formal dress code (usually the main restaurant)." So although they did go totally casual they are re-thinking the policy but it is not as good as you will have seen on P & O, but on a cruise we normally use the main diningroom so it wouldn't upset us, but remember even on P & O you had a casual dress code with only certain evenings designated to be formal.

Assuming you are referring to the USA it's the 4th Thursday in November. This does vary from country to country......Wilba.

According to my Cruise Calendar Norwegian Jewel is in port that day Thursday 26th Nov at Costa Maya from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. which is a new port of call to me, but maybe the Cruise Cal has got it wrong, but if right then the Americans will be celebrating and no doubt a religious service will be the order of the day, don't know what else as I have never been on a cruise on that date.
