Question

can you bring a certain amout of alcohol to the cruise

asked 5 months, 4 weeks ago

answer 1
You can bring as many bottles of wine as you like, but you will have to pay a corkage fee of 15 bucks per bottle. Now, what I like to do is find/buy a nice bottle in port, pay the corkage and bring it with me to the dinner table.
Alternatively, NCL has a very nice wine list and you can buy a bottle from the ship and they will store it for you and you can have it again at any of the restaurants.
Now just buying a cocktail, glass of wine or a beer on the ship, I think the prices are quite reasonable especially in comparison to the prices in a typical bar here in Atlanta,
In addition, NCL has two different packages (unlimited) CAPS and CORKS (for Beer and Wine) and The Ultimate (everything).
I purchased the Ultimate Beverage Package on board the Epic last month on the MIA-BCN crossing and I thought it worked out very nicely and was personally very convenient to me.

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.

http://www.ncl.com/faq#alcohol-consumption

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

http://www.ncl.com/sites/default/files/WineList_Fleetwide_02052014.pdf

Also, NCL offers an "Ultimate Beverage Package", "Corks & Caps Wine & Beer Package" and "Unlimited Fountain Soda" package. Refer to the following link for details and cost. Be sure to read the associated "Terms & Conditions". Packages can be pre-purchased or purchased on board the first day.

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.

Soft drink packages yes. Liquor package - it depends. On the Western Caribbean cruise March 16th, NCL is not offering liquor packages over worries we passengers will get too rowdy.

NCL offers the Ultimate Beverage package that allows you to have unlimited alcoholic drinks anywhere on the ship. The package must be purchased by all adults in your party and it must be purchased for the entire length of the cruise. Here's more information on what's included in the package

Question

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

asked 7 months 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.

Not really - not like on other ships. There is a place next to Maltings Bar and the Cigar Bar on Deck 7 opposite the Barber Shop that serves as a library.

The Second City has 2-3 shows a day. The 7 and 9 PM shows are open to all ages. The 11 PM show is for adults because of the adult theme and language.
Check the daily onboard newsletter. The late night adult events will be marked as 18+

We have booked private excurisions and transfers, do we need to register with the front desk when we arrive on ship?

answer 1
If you have made your own reservation for shore excursions, you do not need to register it with the front desk on the ship. However, keep in mind that you are responsible for getting back to the ship on time. If you are delayed for any reason, the ship will not wait for you past it's departure time. You will have to fly back at your own expense.

You do not need to register your private excursions and transfers with the front desk. When arriving at the ship/pier you will still need to go through the regular check in procedure before boarding.

Depending on the stateroom you have, you can store luggage in the closets. we usually store our suitcases upright in one of the closets. We once had an adjoining cabin (with strangers so the door remained closed and bolted throughout the cruise) which meant we lost closet space, so we stored our luggage there. We have taken to storing our suitcases under the beds because it is simpler to get them out when we need them and it frees up valuable floor-space in the closets for shoes and any purchases we make. Check the stateroom once on board and see what works best for your situation.

Breakfast and lunch are served in O'Sheehan's, Taste, and Garden Café. You can also order through Room Service by placing one of the menu cards with your selections and time of delivery on the exterior door handle. You'll find those cards in your stateroom in the magazine rack.

You can call Room Service for lunch, too., but the menu maybe limited. You'll find the menu in the same magazine rack.

You can order breakfast from Room Service by placing your order card marked with your selections on the door handle before going to bed. It will be delivered at the time you indicate on the card. Make sure you place "Welcome" instead of "Do Not Disturb" so that your breakfast can be delivered.

There is a limited Room Service lunch menu in your stateroom that you can consult and make your order from there by calling Room Service.
