Dress Guidelines
•Dress cruise casual anytime during the day, in the buffet and in most specialty restaurants.
•For women, it includes summer and casual dresses, skirts, regular or capri pants, shorts, jeans and tops. Khakis, jeans, shorts and casual shirts are fine for men.
•Swimwear is acceptable at the buffet and outdoor restaurant, but a shirt or a cover-up and footwear are required.
•Cruise casual is also allowed day and night on embarkation day.
•Wear smart casual if you are eating dinner in the aft main dining room (our more formal dining room) and in Le Bistro on cruises over longer than five days. • For women, it includes slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops.
•For men, it’s jeans or slacks with a collared shirt and closed-toed shoes. Traditional Bermuda shorts along with long socks, loafers and a blazer are all acceptable on a Bermuda cruise.

We want guests to be comfortable, but tank tops for men, flip flops, baseball caps, visors and jeans that are overly faded, with holes or tears and worn below the hips are not permitted in main dining rooms or specialty restaurants.
Guests may want to pack a sweater too—air conditioning can be chilly.

You are cruising Freestyle. Formal clothes are not required on NCL. You can wear "smart casual" clothes to the specialty dining rooms and the main dining rooms.
There are no formal nights but they do have "Dress up or not" nights where formals are suggested (but not required).
However, if you plan to have family portraits taken with the Captain, formals would be nice.

No, mini-suites and suites are two different categories of accommodations, and feature different levels of amenities. On the Epic, the suite category is listed as The Haven. I was unable to find a December 15th departure date for the Epic, but the listing for the December 9th sailing, which includes the 15th, no longer indicates that any drink or dining packages are being included for free with the fare. If you already have booked your cruise, log in to "My NCL" and review your account status to see which packages are included.

All ships have 110 V and 220 V A/C. The connector is US prongs for 110 V and European style prongs for the 220 V.
You may need an adaptor for the prongs if you don't use the US or European style prongs.

All vessels are equipped with 110V & 220V outlets. Some high-voltage hair dryers, electric rollers and electric razors may require a converter.

answer 3
The electrical outlets are 110 volt US standard. There is an outlet in the bath suitable for recharging an electric razor (or phone, camera, or similar low wattage device) and one or more other outlets in the cabin suitable for heavier use. You will find that many of the outlets already are taken up by the television, coffee maker, or other devices, so there may only be one high-current outlet available. If you have several electrical devices you wish to use or recharge at the same time, you may want to bring along a power strip or extension cord with multiple outlets. Devices which require very high amounts of current, such as high wattage hair dryers, are not recommended as they may exceed the overload limit of the electric circuit breakers.

Staterooms have 1 or 2 each of US and European (110V & 220V) type outlets. Neither are located near the bed so an extension cord or two might be useful.

Guests in the mini-suite don't have the perks of the suites. Mini-suites are more like balcony staterooms except for the fact that the rooms are slightly larger. If you want all 4 of the promotional deals, you have to book a suite or penthouse.

No, mini-suites are not the same category as suites or the Haven and do not qualify for all 4 offers. On the Epic you would have to book a Haven stateroom category, refer to stateroom descriptions and location via the "Staterooms" and "Deck Plans" links above.

We toured the area in March a few years ago and it was warm and humid. It will be a different story in Jan. For weather related information, I suggest checking any weather related website and it will show you the current weather and a 10 days forecast for the cities you are visiting. That should give you sufficient info to decide on the type of clothes to pack.

We were on the Epic from Nov 29th- Dec 19th (Eroupr) and the weather was very pleasant. At a couple of port you could go out in a tee shirt. I suggest you check the weather report has I did prior to leaving. I had the full 20 day report and it was pretty much on target. Use it to help determine what to pack.

I Googled "weather Barcelona January" and got the following:

Summary of the Barcelona Weather in January
Page Content

On this page you will find our day by day weather log that will give you an accurate idea of the typical weather conditions in Barcelona during the month of January.

Each day for an entire year I recorded the exact daily weather conditions including temperatures in both Fahrenheit and Centigrade, along with if it was dry, rainy or overcast. By the time you have looked through the table you will know what weather to expect in January and what type of clothes to bring on your holiday.

To see my weather log for other months in Barcelona or to see the current weather conditions please refer to our "Related Pages" section at the foot of this page where you will find links to these pages.
Summary of temperatures and weather in January:

Average temperature: 13° C or 55.4 F
Maximum temperature: 14° C or 57.2 F
Minimum temperature: 7° C or 44.6 F
Our Advice

You can see from the table below that most of the time it will be sunny but colder in Barcelona during January. Make sure to wrap up warm with a good coat, gloves trousers and shoes.

Make sure that your hotel has adequate heating system during these winter months.
