Yes, if you don't see one in the bathroom check the vanity drawers. If for some reason there isn't one you need only ask your steward for one to have it provided.

There is a large screen in the atrium that they use for presentations. They use the same screen to play movies and NFL football games. You will find the game schedules in the onboard newsletter

Many of the bars/lounges may have the footballs games on; keep in mind they use satellite signal, and generally speaking the international broadcast, so you may not necessarily get your regional game, but a game none the less. More often than not though, they should have a NY team on of they are playing.

Only the suite categories would have a DVD player in the room. You would not be able to connect a DVD player to the television that is in your room. All connections would have a lock on them.

There is no self service laundry on any NCL ships. There is laundry service where you pay per piece or per bag. You can ask your room steward for an iron and board that you can borrow for a short period of time. We usually ask for one the first night and do all of our clothes for the week.

No there is not self serve laundering on board, but usually on day 4 or 5 I think it is they offer laundering for any item you can fill in a decent sized bag for a set price. Not too bad of a deal.
Also you can ask your stateroom attendant if there is an iron available for you to borrow for that particular day should you need it.

answer 1
yes you can. Just slap a luggage tag on the case of water and check it with your luggage. You may want to consider wrapping some packing tape around it just so it does not break open when they are handling it and placing it on the ship.

You are allowed to bring your own sodas, juices and water. You can check them or carry them on board. The products must be sealed or risk confiscation by the security. Make sure you tag them with your room tags so that they are delivered to your stateroom along with your luggage.
In some ports, they will not check in your soda/water cases with your bags but you can still carry them onboard with you.

There is only one ship at a time at GSC. NCL does rent the island to other cruises though so you could potentially stop there on an MSC cruise.

It is a combination of both. There will be some choices that repeat but there will also be selections that change each night. It used to be one side for the everyday menu & one side for the just that day menu. The menus in the 2 main dining rooms may be different from each other as well. They will be posted so you can decide which dining room you wish to go to.

There are two pages to the menus in the main dining rooms, each with several choices. One page stays the same throughout the cruise, the other changes nightly.

No. Due to fire hazard issues, the staterooms do not have clothes iron and you are not allowed to bring irons on board the ship. However, you can request the Guest Services Desk or the cabin stewards they will be happy to bring you an iron and ironing board for a few hours.

Yes, all the pools are salt water pools.
The ships frequently drain the pools to clean them and it's expensive to create fresh water from salt water.
