The dress code is fairly casual and has been for awhile now for most of the eating places etc with the exception on the main dining area where it is a bit more strict and they do have fomal nights here although you do have to book a table daily which is a bit of a drag, you can't do as on other ships reserve one for the duration, so your son might be a bit happier now about the more casual approach.

As they say in some of their literature-the dress code is-whatever! So long as you're not in swim wear or shorts or jeans in just one of the main restaurants, there is no code. If you eat early or late there should be little queuing or booking needed. Teenagers like the 24hr. restaurant which serves things like fish and chips, chicken wings and burgers. He'll soon find out where to eat! -Have fun.-Jo.

Dress code is casual, they said that you can wear what you want when you want, but i was refused entry to one of the restaurants because i was wearing denims (smart jeans). other then that the cruise was great ( norwegian jade ,med in july 08 ),.

Hiya We have cruised NCL last year and are going back again this year it was so good. It really is the relaxed laidback experience the company advertises and we found the atmosphere and the service excellent. The best way to look at dress code is to imagine a small town with good pizza burger places through to high class cuisine and take clothes that suit that range. I love their is no formal night but wore a jackety and open neck shirt on a couple of nights because the restaurants we booked into felt they demanded it, however i think i was in the majoity. I seem to remember that some like cagneys have a no shorts rule in the evening and obviously bare chests in these places at lunch etc are not on. The free restaurants range form an excellent buffet to typical grand cruise fare ( sit down 3 course but not stuffy) so again dress in comfort. Your son will not look out of place in smart jeans in the better restaurants and I saw loads of teens in typical gear throughout the week. Shows followed the same themes smart casual don't stress about fitting in! One bit of advice is be aware that the speciality restaurants carry a cover charge and it is best to book as soon as you can if the ship is busy. Have a great trip.

We will be cruising on the NCL Gem and I've already read about some of the restaurants that have a cover charge. Is it only the cover charge you have to pay or pay as well for the food (a la carte) which we order. Also how much (approx. was the cover charge) and if we have to pay also for the food, how expensive is it please? Thank you.

Hawaii FIVE O!!!!!

By Drew Lazarus

Drew Lazarus's blog

Hey! Back again with some more world cruise ports and pics! I think the shot above (the whale breaching the ocean) says it all. So whilst on tender duty in Lahaina , assisting passengers get ashore, I was fortunate enough to witness this through a tender boat window. I still look at the picture and think WOW!!! This was of course the high light of the day for me. There were a number of many different varieties of whales that were not shy and for want of a better word were parading around the...
