Does the Encore have self service laundry facilities?

I am traveling with some new travelers, they are asking about laundry facilities on board. What shall I tell them?
Asked by: CaptWendell
There are no self-service laundry facilities on any NCL ship. You can send your laundry to the ship's laundry for a fee, similar to a land-based dry cleaner, generally with overnight service. They usually run a special mid-cruise - ask your cabin attendant.

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 and when can you make reservations for shows?

Really easy to do. Book the shows you want to see by using the touch screens adjacent to the elevators at any time, but you should do this on the first day of sailing before they sell out.

what do the plus, triangle, and no symbol mean by the room numbers on the 11th deck aft.

We have room 11298 AFT what does it mean that this room has no symbol by the room number, the room just forward of us has a plus symbol next to the number?
Asked by: OAE6970
All the symbols represent different things. These particular ones represent the number of people the room will hold. If you look at the deck plans, and scroll down you will see the symbol key.

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.
