The excitement is building! With only 75 days until the Sweepers Escape, it is time to start booking extra activities for your cruise. The first step is to log in or sign up for a My NCL account at https://www.ncl.com/shorex/register.
If this is your first time, you will need to register using the following form.
The Maxcel Company is the convention travel agent, so check "Yes" for that question. Once you are registered, you can just click on "Log in to My NCL" at the top of the page to log in and view your cruise information anytime you want.
After logging in to your account, you should see a page similar to this one with links to everything you need to know.
Now is the time to start making reservations for shore excursions, dining, spa treatments and entertainment. You can wait and do this when you board the ship, but doing it now saves you a lot of time when you can be enjoying your vacation rather than standing in a line waiting your turn. Plus you are more likely to get the times and dates you want by booking early.
One of my personal favorites is the Spa's Thermal Suite Pass. It gives you unlimited access to this exclusive area of the ship for the entire week. If you purchase your pass online you get $20 off the regular price.
My NCL is also where you will need to check in and update any missing info on your account.
This is where you can add your proof of citizenship or passport number and expiration if you haven't already done so.
A few weeks before the cruise you will receive a notification from NCL stating that your luggage tags are ready to be printed. My NCL is the area where you will find your tags and print them out. So keep an eye on your My NCL account and check it every week or two to see if anything new has been added.
Let us know if you have any suggestions for others going on the cruise. Those of you who cruise frequently probably have lots of good info to share with the rest of us! We would love to hear what you think we should be doing to prepare for our cruise.
