Should speciality coffee be included in the beverage package ?

Why does NCL not consider a soft drinks (soda) and speciality coffee package or included in the soda package as you would drink one or the other.

answer 2
Specialty coffees are usually priced higher than sodas, so if they are included in the soda package, the soda package price will have to be raised to cover the cost of specialty coffees.
It probably makes sense having a separate package for specialty coffees. Not sure how popular it would be for most people. Personally, I wouldn't drink more than one espresso a day. In my case it wouldn't make sense getting the package.

Soft drinks (soda) and bottled water packages are available on board. Also, soft drinks are included in the alcohol beverage packages. At this time there is no specialty coffee package that I know of and won't debate whether or not there should be one. Refer to the following link for more information on the different packages.

I don't think NCL has an approved list of flotation devices. Common sense should prevail here - as long as the device you bring is safe for your kid and cannot injure other kids, you shouldn't have a problem.

As the pool is small on the ship you should have no problem bringing a child's life vest or inflatable arm floaty devices. Other devices such as ring tubes/buoys, noodles would not be permitted as there isn't room in the pool for them.

If you're referring to floatation devices for a chiid that you want to bring with you I'm fairly certain the only one you can use on the ship in the pool for children is a child's life vest, inflatable arm floaties or similar floating aids worn by the child. Other devices such as noodles, ring buoys, boogie boards and the like would likely not be permitted in the pool given the small size of the pool.

Soda in glass bottles would likely be prohibited in certain areas of the ship (i.e., the pool deck) as they are a potential hazard (i.e., broken glass). It would be best for you to bring your soda in cans or plastic bottles.

NCL has moved away from serving beverages in bottles as the potential for broken glass creates a safety issue, especially on the pool deck, and potentially would limit where you could take them. I would recommend that whatever soft drinks you bring on board be in cans or plastic bottles.

Tap water is provided for free, but there are charges for bottles of water. Whether it is worth it or not for you to bring a case of soda on board is a matter of judgement. It depends on how much you crave your carbonated caffeine and whether you can get by without it for a few days, or are willing to pay extra for it.

Tap water which is filtered by reverse osmosis and safe to drink is complimentary, however there are individuals who prefer bottled water. As for soda NCL only serves Pepsi products which some people to not like to drink. Also, there is a fee for bottled water and soda. Those are the basic reasons individuals bring their own bottled water and/or soda so whether or not you bring your own is a personal decision.

You may make dinner and entertainment reservations up to 90 days prior to sailing, or up to 100 days if you are booked in a Suite or the Haven. Go to "MyNCL" and click on "View Reservation" for your cruise. Follow the links to dining and entertainment options, make your selections, and add them to your shopping cart. When you close out your shopping cart you will be asked for credit card info if any of your choices incur a fee. Otherwise, you simply close out the transaction and the choices will be reserved for you.

No. 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.
