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.

For guests who are booked in a suite category will be able to start making reservations at 100 days prior to the sailing. For all other categories guest would be able to start making reservations at 90 days prior to the sailing. You would be able to make reservations either by calling into the Reservations Department 1-800-327-7030 or on ncl.com by logging into your account.

You can make dining reservations within 90 days, 100 if you're in a suite or the Haven, of departure. To do so login into "My NCL", view your reservation and go to the "Explore and Plan" section.

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.

With Freestyle cruising there is no early or late dinner seating. You dine when you want and where you want when the restaurants are open which is usually 5:30 PM to 10:00 PM. There are no reservations for the complimentary restaurants but they are highly recommended for Specialty restaurants as they have limited capacity. Refer to the "What's on Board?" link above for dining info for the ship or the following link for more info on cruise ship dining.

I have been on the Jewel for 3 cruises, twice in the past year, and am pleased to say that there is a decent cigar lounge on board called "The Humidor." The Lounge is on Deck 6, near the Casino and the Wine Bar. There are 10 leather armchairs in the Lounge and the air is well circulated through an air filtration system.

I don't believe that the ship has a cigar lounge onboard the ship. On it's sister sip, the Pearl, the cigar lounge is located on deck 6. The Jewel has the same layout but it doesn't show the cigar lounge on deck 6.
