No. There are no self-service laundries. All ships offer laundry, dry clean & pressing services. They have laundry bags in your stateroom that you can give to the cabin stewards. Usually around the middle of the cruise they offer discounts on the services.
However, I wouldn't use it for any delicate or expensive dresses.

There are no self-service laundries at all. You can have your cleaning done at the ship's laundry for a nominal fee. They usually have a one-day special toward the end of the cruise. Watch for it in the events paper.

It usually takes about 30 minutes for the ship to be cleared by customs before the guests can start disembarking. The VIP guests are the first to disembark followed by guests carrying their own bags off the ship. All other guests can pick their bags at the port and go through customs.
If you walk off the ship with your bags, it can take about 30 additional minutes to go through customs after the ship is cleared by customs. For other guests it can take 1-2 hours to disembark and clear customs.

Is it a must that bags get picked up the night before you get on the ship?

answer 1
No. You don't have to put the bags out on the last night of the cruise. If you put the bags out, you can walk off the ship without any bags and collect them at the port. However, if you do not put the bags out you will have to carry your bags with you when you disembark. Due to various regulations, the ships crew are not allowed to assist you carry your bags off the ship.

I assume you meant the night before you get OFF the ship. You have the option to walk off the ship carrying all of your luggage. You'll be the first off the ship if you do. If you don't want to or can't do that, then you have to leave your bags out the night before disembarking. The bags have to be collected so they can be ready to be off-loaded upon docking.

Can we bring a case of bottled water and a case of soda?

You are allowed to bring your own sodas, juices and water. You can check them or carry them on board. The products must be sealed or risk confiscation by the security. Make sure you tag them with your room tags so that they are delivered to your stateroom along with your luggage.
In some ports, they will not check in your soda/water cases with your bags but you can still carry them onboard with you.

Yes you can. At most ports, you can attach a luggage tag and they'll be loaded with your bags, although at a few ports you're required to carry them on yourself.

No. The newer ships like the Breakaway & the Getaway have fireworks on every cruise. NCL doesn't have fireworks on the older ships.

Aluminum foil?

I use aluminum foil when curling my hair. Am I allowed to bring aluminum foil on board either in the suitcase or carry on? And if so, does it have to be on the roll, or can it be cut up?

There are no restrictions on getting aluminum foil. It is not a prohibited item. You can pack a roll in your suitcase. If you don't want to carry a whole roll, you can cut it and carry as much as you would require.

No. The balcony dividers are fire proof doors and to prevent the spread of fire, the doors are locked when the ship is sailing.
