I do not have a smart phone and was able to use my cell phone almost the entire time I was on the ship. I did call guest services to check before using it and there is no charge. The signal you get is from land, not the ship, so your regular cell phone rates apply. There were times at night, when the ship was moving between ports that there was no signal and the battery ran down searching for one, but if you take your charger and plug it in at night, that shouldn't be a problem.

Yes, you can use your cell phone. Typically once the ship is at sea your cell phone would automatically connect to Freestyle Cellular Service through Wireless Maritime Services. You may want to check with your personal service provider for any international roaming rates that would apply. For the POA it may depend on proximity to land based cell towers as the ship only sails in Hawaiian waters.

Question

Is Aloha wear acceptable in the main dining room?

I am booked on Pride of America, cruising the Hawaiian Islands. Is Aloha wear acceptable in the main dining room? "Aloha wear" means a dressy, Aloha shirt, knee length "dress" shorts and "slippahs". This is normal business meeting attire in the Hawaiian islands.

I don't think shorts or slippers are allowed in the main dining room even on the Hawaiian cruise. I think I remember the dress code being posted with the menu outside the 2 main dining rooms. http://www.ncl.com/faq#packing

When I was there in October, they had a white hot party (all white), and there was a disco party one night. There was also a day for aloha wear (Hawaiian dresses or shirts). I don't remember if there were any others. The only one I knew about before the cruise was the white hot party. There are also nights you can dress formally and have pictures made.

NCL is freestyle cruising. They may have a special event like their white hot party, but you're always free to wear what you want. They do not have formal nights either. The closest they come are "dress up or not nights". Any special events will be mentioned in their freestyle daily newsletter the night before.

When the ship is in port you shouldn't have a problem using your cell phone, but check your coverage area to make sure Hawaii is in your plan. I used mine the entire time I was on the trip, calling home to Georgia almost everyday. However, when the ship was traveling at night, it's far enough from shore that I couldn't get a signal.

Excursions

If we book and charge excursions ahead of time, can we change them without a charge?

Yes, but be sure to do it at least by 8am the day before, or more. The ticket to the excursion should list the cancellation time at the bottom. We even cancelled one a little late and they allowed it, although we took a little grief for it.

Mostly yes... Most excursions can be canceled with at least a 24 hour notice, without a charge. There are a very few excursions that do not allow cancelations, and they state so in the details of the excursion; One that comes to mind is one I read on a helicopter ride excursion.
