Is there any way to tell the configuration of room....for instance I would prefer a cabin with the bed located close to the bathroom not by the balcony.
Can anyone answer that question?

You can't really configure the room too much. The beds are located closer to the bathroom. In the balcony the sofa is located next to the balcony. Since that is the configuration you want, you should be fine.
Here's the link to the deck plans for the ship. You can select your deck and your stateroom and check out the floor plan for your room.

Most bathrooms are located as close to the bed (if not closer) as the bed is to the balcony, You can go to www.ncl.com, click on the tab 'Learn About Our Cruises', hover your mouse on 'View Details' of the Ship you want to explorer & select 'Staterooms'. There you can see the photo or floor plan (room configuration) of the various stateroom types.

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 duty free shop for you to purchase liquor and other duty free items. However, if you purchase liquor, you will not be able to take the bottles with you until the last night of the cruise.

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.

Do they offer wetsuit rental for scuba diving in Bahamas?

answer 1
I haven't done that excursion but since it's just snorkeling I don't believe that you will get a wetsuit.
I don't know what time of the year you are going but I was in Bahamas this Sept and the water was perfect. The temp was around 85 degrees and the water temp would probably be in the high 70s.
Hope that helps.

My understanding is that there are 2 versions of the show. One which is family (children) oriented and a late night adult only version. The daily activity sheet will identify any show not appropriate for children.

Only the late night shows are for adults. The adult shows occur at 11 PM at night. The earlier shows are for general audience.

Check your daily onboard newsletter. All adult shows will have an age restriction (18+) warning.

The SC also has a luncheon that is suitable for all ages but there is a fee involved for the luncheon.

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.
