Could beds be seperated

Hello, I am traveling with my cousin, and we are hoping the beds in our room could be separated into two twin beds? I have hot flashes during the night and toss covers on and off and toss and turn a lot. She won't get any sleep. Thank you, Susan
Asked by: donthaveone
I had the same question, as I will be traveling with my adult niece. I called the number listed on this website, and the rep told me that they would have the king bed separated into 2 twin beds - no problem!

Hello. We applied for a room upgrade Feb. 01 2023. We are now 2 weeks away from sailing. Is there any way to know if it was accepted?

I keep seeing things for us to apply for an upgrade, but we already did it. Because we did it 3 over 3 months ago and I keep seeing things to upgrade, I wonder if the upgrade was even considered...or do I need to do it again?
Asked by: youngmech63
I made an offer about the same time and received an email about a month ago that my bid was accepted. I was told that an accepted bid would receive an email-others it isn’t accepted…even up to one day before sailing. Try looking on the NCL website at your cabin assignment. Mine changed from the original after the upgrade

How can I apply for a cabin upgrade

Asked by: Smokeater
Shortly after the full-pay date, the upgrade bidding will begin. You'll be notified by e-mail. Of course, you can always upgrade by calling your TA or NCL PCC, but you'll pay the full price for the upgrade.

What are the options for vegan food on the Encore?

I’m sailing to Alaska with 3 vegans
Asked by: Veegan
They do vegetarian pretty well, but not vegan - if you tell your dietary preferences ahead of time they may be able to accommodate. I would recommend eating in the main dining rooms, being clear about your restrictions, and staying away from the buffet.

What all included with The Haven, such as wi-fi, drink packages etc?

Asked by: York0330
Nothing past your "free at sea." BUT the bartenders are talented and have access to more resources for cocktails. The wine menu is more extensive. The food at the Haven is FANTASTIC and you can have lobster tails and fillet mignon every night if you want, delivered by your butler. The people at the Haven bend over backwards to accommodate your wants.

How can I reserve dinners and shows at night?

Hi, we leave on the cruise on 3/17/24. When and how can dinners and shows? Thank you!
Asked by: Furno
You can reserve dinner starting closer to your sail date (a month before I think???) You cannot reserve the free shows. It is first-come, first-serve. UNLESS you are Haven. Then you can tell them what you want and they will get it ready for you.

Gratuity Prepaid

Is it better to prepaid or pay on board for the gratuities
Asked by: Seasailsel
Depends entirely on personal preference. You pay the same amount either way (unless you happen to prepay prior to a rate increase). Some people like to prepay so they don't have to worry about it.

Formal Attire Nights

This is my first Norwegian cruise, but Carnival and Royal Caribbean have formal nights where everyone wears nice attire to dinner. Does Norwegian do formal nights?
Asked by: LMichelle
NCL has a freestyle philosophy, where everyone can dine where and when they please and dress as they please (with a few suggested dress codes at dinner). There are no formal nights, but if you want to dress up, do it. You won't be alone.
