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.

You would need to book the next cruise following yours for a back-to-back cruise and would be contingent upon availability. Contact NCL Reservations or your travel agent depending on who you booked with initially.

Can we have guests in the Haven area

We crused in The Haven last December. We met friends on the cruise that wanted to see the Haven. I cleared it with the Concierge to give our new friends a tour. That was no problem as long as it was a tour only. People not booked in the Haven can't use any of the facilities.

You are allowed to have non-Haven guests in your stateroom. There are no restrictions on them visiting you.
As far as the guests having dinner at the Haven dining and the Haven lounge is concerned, guests in the Haven categories are allowed to invite up to 4 of their non-Haven guests to dinner. The invitation only provides these guests access to the restaurant and Club lounge and can be requested a maximum of 2 times per cruise. There is a cover charge involved for the non-Haven guests.

My understanding is that you must have a Platinum colored key to enter the Haven area and that there is a concierge at the entrance to enforce that. They may be able to visit your room, but maybe not since they would then have access to the pool and sundeck. The intent is to keep the Haven dining room and pool areas just to Haven guests, otherwise (as I saw on one of the reviews someplace) if you were travling with a group, you could book one Haven cabin and other cheaper staterooms and do a "spring break" where everyone decends on the Haven room. We're travling in July so will find out more details then.... we are in the Haven that week.
