Passenger Sues NCL Over Freestyle Dining Hiccup

The Miami Herald is reporting that a California woman is suing Norwegian Cruise Line alleging that the cruise line did not properly disclose that obtaining a reservation at a specialty restaurant, if not booked in a higher-end cabin, could prove difficult.

NCL is known for "freestyle cruising," and the flexibility of eating anytime, anywhere. The suit seeks refunds for the cruise and other costs on behalf of Eva Gularte, her sister and mother. It's also seeking class-action status for all NCL passengers who have met similar problems in the last three years. 

A spokesperson for the line told Travel Agent that NCL had yet to be served with the suit and, therefore, would reserve comment.
