Taxes and port charges will be charged at the time of reservation.
Tipping is not required because gratuity will be billed to your account at the end of the cruise.
There are complimentary restaurants and specialty restaurants. Specialty restaurants have a cover charge but the complimentary restaurants do not have a charge.

It's customary to tip the porters who take your luggage upon arrival at the pier ($1 or $2 per bag I believe). Other than that and your onboard purchases there are no other fees or taxes after final payment for your cruise.

Yes. The Port of Tampa has parking at the terminal You can check the Port's website for the rates and directions for parking. Check online for private parking garages near the airport that are more economical. You can take a taxi to the port.

On the newer ships like the Epic, Breakaway & the Getaway you can make reservations for the show because seats are limited.
On the older ships, there are plenty of seats available in the show and reservations are not needed.
They have shows every night in the main theater at 7:30 PM & 9:30 PM. Seating is on a first come first serve basis. The "What's on board?" section for the ship will list of the entertainment on the ship.

NCL offers the following meal options at the time of reservation - Salt Free Diet, Sugar Free Diet, Low Cholesterol Meals, Vegetarian Meals, Kosher Meals. You can always call NCL and add them to your reservation.
If you have any other special dietary requirements contact NCL about a month in advance and inform them about the dietary requirements. Follow up with NCL a week before the cruise as a reminder. Once on board, contact the restaurant manager to ensure that they are aware of it.

There is an Internet cafe, but access is not free. You can pay by the minute or buy a package. Be aware that this is satellite internet which is significantly slower than land based broadband.

Yes, the Internet cafe has computers that the guests can use. However you have to pay for the internet usage.
You can purchase minutes in blocks of 30/60/100/250 or pay as you use.
Remember that the ship uses satellite communication for internet connection and it's quite slow.

answer 1
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.

That used to be true a few years ago. NCL has recently introduced various drinks packages and I'm not sure if that offer is still valid. When you board the ship, they will have a desk setup where you can purchase the bottles. Check with them if they still offer the discount.

how do you handle laundry services

I'd like to know about laundry service while on a cruise (i.e. is it cheap enough to allow me to bring only half the close I'll need and have them cleaned half way through the 14 day cruise

We do offer laundry and dry cleaning services. The prices for the services will be available once you are onboard. We do not have any self service laundry facilities.

answer 2
The rules of this forum prohibit the discussion of cost for goods and services. However, the cost of laundry service is quite reasonable. On a 7 day cruise, they usually offer a discount sometime half way through the cruise where you can a laundry bag and you can get anything that you can fit in the bag cleaned for a fixed price. I'm sure on a 14 days cruise, they will offer the same deal couple of times during the cruise.

The handrails and steps lead into the pool. I'm not sure if the handrails go all the way in but the steps go into the water.
