For guests 0-3 years old there is no cover charge for specilaty dinning. For guests who are 12 yrs and younger are charged 50 % of the cover charge for the specilay resturants. For shore excursions participants under the age of 13 pay child prices and participants 13 years of age and older pay adult prices (unless otherwise noted on the shore excursion).

For specialty restaurants, children 3-years old and younger always eat for free, children 4- to 12-years old can choose from a complimentary Kids’ Menu or from the restaurant’s Specialty Kids’ Menu for half price. Refer to the following link: http://www.ncl.com/diningguide

For excursions I believe under 18 is considered a minor (child) unless specifically noted in the excursion description.

It depends...

We booked some excursions and dinners on our upcoming cruise for our 11 and 14 year olds on the trip, and the treatment of child vs. adult depended upon the excursion since they're operated by independents.

From an NCL perspective, from the website:

Prices

All prices are in U.S. dollars, capacity controlled and subject to change without notice. Prices for Hawaii only, DO NOT INCLUDE the additional Hawaiian State Tax that is assessed on all Shore Excursions. Prices include meals, refreshments as indicated in the tour description (including gratuities for these services), plus guide and entrance fees, unless otherwise noted. There is no charge for children under the age of 2 (at the time of sailing) who do not occupy a separate seat on most tours. Children's prices are only available as indicated at time of booking. Participants under the age of 13 pay child prices and participants 13 years of age and older pay adult prices (unless otherwise noted).

There was a wonderful cell phone coverage on NCL Sun, but NONE on NCL Epic. That is NO SIGNAL, EVER. If I had known that, I would have sailed on a different ship. EPIC no more.

Yes, but it's not cheap.

http://www.ncl.com/about/staying-connected-sea-cellular-phone-service-texting

You should also reach out to your wireless provider to ensure you have a valid International Plan or that your phone is enabled for international dialing before you leave (some are not).

For reference, my provider is Verizon, and it's $2.49/minute -- and make sure data roaming is off. TXTing is something like 50cents per msg sent or received.

Once the ship is at sea your cellular phone would automatically connect to Freestyle Cellular Service through Wireless Maritime Services. You may want to check with your personal service provider for any international roaming rates that would apply.

Refer to the following links for more info.

Yes there will still be a corkage fee for each bottle of wine or champagne that is brought onboard reguardless if it has a screw lid.

answer 2
"Corkage" fee is not for the staff removing the cork from the bottle, it's to offset (aside from the lost revenue) the costs/time of the waiter serving you, washing the glasses, and if you happen to break the glass, replacing one (or more).

Yes. You're not paying them to remove the cork. You're paying them for the privilege of bringing your own wine instead of buying theirs.

Burn the Floor is in the main theather, however thoughout the sailing the cast of the show would do a pre view or sneek peek of the show in the Manhatten Dinning Room.

Burn the Floor is a show, just like Rock of Ages, that occurs in the main theater. The reservation you made is for the show in the main theater.

The Manhattan dining room has a dance floor and a couple of times per cruise, the crew of Burn the Floor has a show there. You cannot make reservations for the Manhattan room but if you are in the room having dinner, you can watch the show.

answer 1
You can dine for free in the Haven restaurant, but you musy pay the standard cover charge in the other specialty restaurants. It's a good idea to make reservations ahead of time. You can do that on-line via MyNCL, or your concierge can take care of it for you.

Yes, and yes. Specialy restaurant charges apply to everyone, regardless of where you are staying. You can book dining reservations in the specialty restaurants 100 days prior to sailing, but you'll have to use a credit card to pre-pay -- you cannot use on-board-credit (if you have some) for the charges. The concierge can also help you with reservations once you board. If your dining party is large, it's advisable to book in advance, but if you're a small party (2 or 4), you should be okay.

Do I Pack Water in Luggage or Carry It?

It's much easier to just slap a room tag on the side of the case of water and have it delivered to your stateroom. If you put it in a bag, you will have to open the bags.

You can just stick a luggage tag on it and it will be delivered to your stateroom with your bags. We brought two cases with us on our last trip.

I do the same. I put extra packing tape on the factory sealed case and tape a luggage tag on the case. This way you check it in as luggage and it will show up at your room. I have never had a problem.
