And let me add that I just came off the Sky not too long ago and had the same great laundry service I had on the Sun. I will be back on the Sun again next month and plan on using the service again at some point and will let everyone know. I've been very pleased and it's very convenient I might add and reasonably priced!

Yes! You will find a laundry bag in your cabin that says LOL "I REFUSE TO DO LAUNDRY ON VACATION!" Your steward will pick it up for you. I used the service just recently on the SUN and used it on The Pearl and was very pleased. They usually will run a special mid-cruise and for a set price they will launder anything and everything that you can fit in the bag,

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.

Usually NCL recommends that guests book their flights 4-5 hours after the ship docks in the morning. Most likely your flight will be after 12 noon. I would suggest calling NCL to check with them on the details.

We do offer The Behind the Scenes tour. The tour can be booked at the Guest Services Desk onboard. It is not offered for pre-cruise booking. The price per person is $55.

Question

Which ship has the least amount of children?

Husband and I are going on our (belated) honeymoon, and don't want to deal with a lot of screaming, noisy kids.

Which rooms have the largest bathrooms?

Cruise itinerary and time of year has more to do with the amount of children on the cruise than any ship itself. There usually is less children on any ship when school is in session. Largest bathrooms for the most part are in the suites, all other staterooms are about the same size bathroom.

Generally, any cruise taken while school is in session would have less children. Also, larger baths would be in the more expensive rooms such as the suites. Look at the room type floor plans.

If you cruise when school is in session, you won't find too many kids on board. Summer vacation and the winter Christmas break are the times when you will see a lot of kids.
The Alaskan cruises probably have the least number of kids. Scenery is not something that kids enjoy. There are no shore excursions geared towards kids like swim with dolphins etc which you find at most of the tropical ports.
As far as bathrooms are concerned, it's almost the same in all regular staterooms. If you want larger bathrooms, you may want to look at the suites.

If you are planning to be out on deck quite a bit you will need a warm jacket. It gets very cool and windy, especially in the evening.

Be sure to pack rain gear (umbrella, rain jacket, etc) as the Southeast of Alaska is located in temperate rainforest. Plan for rain! If the sun shines, great, but be prepared.

In Alaska, the weather will be in the 60's for high temp and dip to 50s at night. I would suggest packing some light jacket. If you are planning a trip to a glacier, you will need warmer clothes.

Chef's Table Experience when one does not drink

Reading about this I understand it includes alcohol. What if one of us do not drink at ALL. Is there a price break? Thanks!

Fixed price. The wine is a huge part of the whole experience. I would probably not attend if I were not drinking the wine. They will certainly serve you a non alcoholic drink if you wish, but the price will be the same.

May not happen automatically. I believe the passenger is responsible for making payments per schedule, and clearing the account by due date.

I believe that they will charge the balance to the card you provided. However if you want to change the card, call NCL reservation or your travel agent.

US dollars. However, if you tip in Euros or Pounds, I'm sure that the staff will be equally happy. It will be more difficult for them to exchange any other form of currency.

Gratuities are automatically added to your account. So much per cruiser per day. This covers cabin stewards,waiters and a few others who share this. You will not have the same waiter every day.
For bar drinks etc they add a tip to the check automatically so be sure to notice that. You can add to the check if you want
If you want to leave even more for the cabin steward etc they will take just about any currency. I used American dollars.
