You can only bring wine on board (alcohol will be confiscated) but you will have to pay a corkage fee per bottle. Refer to the following link for details and fees.

Or check out NCL's wine list (link below) and purchase by the glass or bottle on the ship at any of the bars.

You cannot bring your own liquor onboard the ship. Any liquor you bring onboard the ship will be confiscated by the ship's security and returned to you on the last night of the cruise. Same is true for any liquor you purchase at any of the ports you visit.
However, you are allowed to bring wine and champagne onboard the ship but there is a corkage fee ranging from $15-$30 per bottle.

Any alcohol that you bring on board will be confiscated at security when you get on the ship. It will be returned to you the night before you disembark. You'll be given a ticket which you will present at the designated place and time on the night before your cruise ends.

You may bring wine and champagne on board for consumption in the dining room, and you will be charged a corkage fee of US$15 per bottle that you wish to consume on board.

Cigar smoking is more restricted compared to cigarette smoking. You are only allowed to smoke outdoor away from the pool and food areas. You cannot smoke cigars in the balcony and casino where cigarette smoking is allowed.

Question

Pre-booking entertainment?

The NCL website says that entertainment can be pre-booked at 120 days for the Norwegian Epic. However, I'm not seeing that option yet (even though a new slide has appeared about it on the my NCL page but when you click it, it doesn't work). Help!

That's what I was starting to assume (the 45 days timeline).

But this is exactly what the website says on the "Preparing for Your Cruise" page...

"Entertainment & Spa Treatments*
Plan a morning of pampering at the Mandara Spa, then a special evening with dinner and a late show at the main theater. Pre-booking Entertainment is available on Norwegian Epic and Breakaway 120 days prior to sailing; and Spa on Norwegian Epic 45 days prior."

If I'm not mistaken, it's actually 45 (55 for guests in the suites) days. Shore excursions can be made at anytime. The entertainment and dinner reservations can only be done 45 days before the sail date.

Question

Can you smoke e-cigs in all areas or is it restricted to the same rules as smoking?

asked 3 months, 1 week ago
by
TAFY
 - Tucson, AZ
on Norwegian Epic
3 answers
Answers
answer 1
No! Only in areas where smoking is allowed... balconies or smoking lounges.
According to my reading of the material provided by NCL, the use of e-cigs is perceived by passengers as smoking and for the comfort of the majority who do not smoke it is not allowed in dining facilities or other common areas.

Thank you, NCL for this rule!

There are no written rules for e-cigs but my guess is that it will be the same as regular smoking.

Any resturant that has a cover charge would not be included with your cruise price. Our ships usually have 2 main dinning rooms that comes with the cruise. You may check on ncl.com for the different dinning options that would be available for your sailing.

I just checked to be sure of my information to you. Once you open ncl.com, select "Ships" at the bottom of the page, and then choose EPIC, or the ship you want this information about. When that page opens, select "What's On Board". It opens to a full list of the restaurants and gives the charges (per person) for each restaurant.

All the specialty restaurants are at extra charge. These include, in no specific order, Le Bistro, Cagney's, Moderno, Teppanyaki, Sushi Bar, La Cucina and Speigel Tent Cirque Dreams & Dinner. Prices range from $15 to $40 per person.

You can find this information, per ship, at ncl.com and scrolling thorugh what's on board and selecting dining options.
