My husband, 12 y.o. daughter and I were on this cruise. We've cruised Norwegian twice previously - once in an Owner's Suite and once in a Penthouse. We were in another Penthouse this time. We've also cruised Royal Caribbean.
This is always a breeze when you're in a suite. Easy to drop off our luggage with the porter and park right at the port (we booked the Holiday Inn in Titusville and took advantage of the parking discount certificate for Port Canaveral). We were escorted to the check in window and breezed through the check-in process (I believe we arrived around 12:30 and it was not crowded at all at the port). Our butler, Teodoro, met us in the suite lounge where we chatted for a few minutes. No time to even sample the snacks before Patrick, the concierge, met us and escorted us on board to Cagney's where we enjoyed a nice lunch before checking into our room.
