I'm interested in hearing thoughts about the Captain's Dinner on the Pearl.
My boyfriend and I sailed on the Jewel 2 years ago, but did not attend the dinner. However this time around, I'm really interested in going. Is it worth it?

During a cruise on the Dawn, we had a CC meet and greet and during that meet and greet the hotel director told us that the Captain on the Dawn has an Officer's dinner every cruise, including himself and invited all of us. We all wrote down our room numbers and a couple of days later we received a special invitation to the dinner. Each table had an officer of the ship present and free wine as long as you wanted to drink it. It was a very nice touch and every one had a great time.
I haven't heard of other NCL ships doing this but the Dawn Captain made sure it was done every cruise.
On our last cruise on the Spirit-- spring 2008-- they asked that if anyone was intereseted that you could fill out a card( a raffel) to dine with one of the ships officers including the captain on one special night-- we reallyDid they make some sort of annoucement or what?
liked the hotel director so we put his name down and we dined with him along with another couple in the main dining room along with all the officers with other guests at other tables-- this was really a nice thing to do. Since the hotel director is in charge of all the food, cabins, entertainment etc-- you can imagine the service we received at our table that night in the main dining room.
