Question

Do we have to book the entertainment like Rock of ages or Burn the floor?

answer 1
Its not required that entertainment has to be booked prior to the sailing however it is something that is available to the guests who wishes to do so. The shows would not be 100 % filled prior to you getting onboard so you are able to make reservations once you are onboard as well.

answer 2
It is advisable to reserve your seats before the show because of the limited number of seats available per show. Certain number of seats are reserved for guests with no reservation and seating is based on availability.
You can reserve the seats by logging into your MyNCL account 90 days (100 days if you are staying in a suite) before your sail date. You can also make reservations onboard the ship.

You don't have to but if you don't you may not get to see the show when you want if it's fully booked. There's a standby line to see the show if seats are available.

It's a good idea to pre-book. While there is usually space available on a walk-in basis, the best seats will have been taken by those with reservations.

Yes again, twist-off cap or cork the corkage fees apply to all bottles of wine brought onto the ship regardless of where you drink it. Or buy it by the glass or wine on the ship, refer to NCL's wine list via the following link.

Yes. You'll be charged a corkage fee for every bottle of wine you bring on board. Where you choose to drink it is irrelevant. The twist cap is likewise irrelevant. The corkage fee is not charged for the labor of removing a cork. It's charged for the privilege of bring your own wine instead of buying theirs.

answer 4
Wine & champagne sales are a source of revenue for the ships, and loss of wine sales can depress earnings. For this reason, the ships charge a corkage fee equivalent to their cheapest bottle, to recoup at least some of the potential lost revenue. This practice is common in the restaurant industry where restaurants allow customers to bring their own wine to the restaurant.
Irrespective of where the bottle has a twist cap or a cork and irrespective of where you consume the wine, you still have to pay the corkage fee.

FROM MY previous cruises on NCL THERE IS A
liquor store on board that sells+has sales on different
varieties.Only problem is you get the liquor you
purchase after the cruise is over+the ship has docked
in its final returning port.
Look at the rules concerning liquor purchase by NCL.

There is a shop, the Trade Winds that sell a variety of liquor with a selection of low priced to higher priced versions. It is fairly well stocked and the staff really do know their inventory and are more than happy to discuss the finer points of each brand or selection.

Liquor purchased on the cruise are set aside and held for you - whatever bottles you do purchase will be delivered to your room the evening before you disembark.

Liquor purchased on any of the islands are recorded and taken when you come back to the ship. These bottles will be delivered as well to your room the last night of the cruise.

Prices on the ship are good - and prices on the islands are even better.

If you upgrade to The Haven, you will never want to cruise anyother way. That's what happened to us about 5 cruises ago. The Haven is a beautiful way to cruise. Hopefully you get your upgrade. Enjoy.

A lot of people like to upgrade once they have booked a cabin. Check for available staterooms and their price on NCL's website. That should give you an idea on how much it will cost to upgrade.
Since you already have a reservation, you will need to contact NCL or your travel agent to make the reservation changes.

there is WIFI, but it is not free. You can either pay by the minute or buy a package. The more minutes you buy the cheaper, but you will be looking at paying like 40-50 cents per minute. They do specials, you just have to read the freestyle daily to know what they are. Also, keep in mind, the connections is slow due to it being satellite internet.
