More than 1 beverage package? What’s included?

husband drinks soda & NO alcohol. I drink alcohol (rarely any soda) & probably not more than 3 drinks/day.I have 2 teen boys that are coming as well. They’re not picky about what they drink. What’s included w/out a package? Is it only drinks in the dining area? What drinks are complimentary?
Asked by: eripol
If you are looking to compare the drink packages. the alcohol package must be purchased by all adult guests in the room. If you buy the soda package, it is not necessary for everyone to buy it. Coffee, tea, milk, OJ, cranberry juice is complimentary during breakfast hours. During lunch and dinner hours ice, tea, lemonade and a couple of sugar free juice drinks are available.

Food Provided?

Hello, will food be a complimentary service or do we have to purchase them? Thank you
Asked by: LCTR
one of the major selling points about a cruise is the food is free and you can completely pig out of you wish. there are 2 main dining rooms, the buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner, an out door grill during the day, a chinese restaurant, so i assure you you wont go hungry. there are also an italian restaurant, a steak house, a japanese teriyaki restaurant, and a fancy french restaurant (le bistro) as well as a sushi bar and a brazilian . these however are all extra and most are a la carte. that being said, the steak house (cagney's, teppanyaki, and the brazilian are well worth the extra dollars. C'mon, youre on vacation, splurge a little

Are there Vegan Options available in the dining rooms and buffet on Norwegian Epic

Plant based diet - no dairy, no meat, no poultry, no fish, no eggs
Asked by: DBFORMAN
All restaurants have at least one vegetarian dish. However, it may not qualify as a strict vegan dish. If you have any other special dietary requirements contact NCL about a month in advance and inform them about the dietary requirements. Follow up with NCL a week before the cruise as a reminder. Once on board, contact the restaurant manager to ensure that they are aware of it.

I am staying in room 9243 on the Epic Ship, I am claustrophobic will i be ok in the shower and the toilet area I heard they are small

also in the stateroom, I have been on the Norwegian SKY and also on the ESCAPE, I did fine on those ships
Asked by: ShellyF
The showers on the Epic are the smallest of any NCL ship. They are only about two feet in diameter, barely enough to extend your arm or raise your leg. They are not large enough for me to bend over to touch the floor. You may feel claustrophobic in them.

Is there an emergency phone number that can be called in the event family need to reach us (for an emergency) on board in Europe?

Leaving from Barcelona
Asked by: NewATLworldtraveler
Yes, the number will appear on your room key card which you will receive when you check in for your cruise. Your cell phone should be able to receive calls anytime you are in a port, but perhaps the best way to contact you would be via email. You would need to purchase a WiFi plan to be able to access the internet while on board the ship, but it would give your family the ability to contact you 24 hours a day.

If we sail from Puerto Rico and ship return arrival is 5:00 AM, what is the earliest suggested flight out of San Juan?

Asked by: jlcllove93
NCL usually suggest at least 6 hours after the ship docks. On one of our Alaskan cruise with another company we weren't allowed to disembark before 7 AM even though the ship docked at 5 AM just because there were no customs officials or employees at the dock. Not sure if that is true at Puerto Rico. In any case, 11 AM would be a safe bet.
