I am booking last minute. Will i have difficulty making entertainment reservations or dinner reservations?

Asked by: rita4mom
You can check online to make the reservations. Even if nothing is available online, you should be able to make reservations onboard the ship. They reserve part of the dinner and show for guests making reservations onboard the ship. For shows, there is always walk-in seats available for guests with no reservations.

Dress Code for dinner and dress code for Buffet meals

Asked by: tradbuff
No wet bathing suits in Buffett; shirts and shoes needed. You can wear t shirt, jeans, shorts. It is not formal. Some restaurants require long pants and do not allow t shirts or tank tops on men but these have a fee with them. Dress business casual and you can’t go wrong!

Is there an iron and ironing board provided in the mini suite rooms?

Asked by: Nazneen
No. Due to fire hazard issues, the staterooms do not have clothes iron and you are not allowed to bring irons on board the ship. However, you can request the Guest Services Desk or the cabin stewards they will be happy to bring you an iron and ironing board for a few hours.

What is the dress code for specialty restaurants. Do any require collared shirts for men?

Asked by: hfxdeb
Dress codes are posted at the entrance to each restaurant, however they are really just suggestions and NCL staff usually do not make a significant effort to enforce them. When it comes to what to wear, you can go resort casual or get decked-out and look your best - it’s your call. You may dress cruise casual anytime during the day, in the buffet and in most specialty restaurants. For women, it includes summer and casual dresses, skirts, regular or capri pants, shorts, jeans and tops. Khakis, jeans, shorts and casual shirts are fine for men. Swimwear is acceptable at the buffet and outdoor restaurant, but a shirt or a cover-up and footwear are required. Tank tops for men, flip flops, baseball caps, visors and jeans that are overly faded, with holes or tears and worn below the hips are not permitted in main dining rooms or specialty restaurants. You can wear smart casual in the more formal dining room or more upscale specialty restaurants. For women, it includes slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops. For men, it's jeans or slacks with a collared shirt and closed-toed shoes. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in all restaurants.

Are their refrigerators

We are in Room 14114. Is their a refrigerator. I am diabetic and need to keep my insulin cool.
Asked by: ajbeagle
Yes a mini fridge with mini bar items for sale; ask steward to make room for insulin when you board. You can also get ice from Buffett area when you board while waiting for room to be readied; take an empty ziplock or two with you. All rooms have small sharps containers in bathroom now for needles or pen needle tips. (Also a fellow type 1 here!)

Are jackets required for men at any of the on board restaurants on the Escape?

Asked by: KRath
You are cruising Freestyle. Formal clothes are not required on NCL. You can wear "smart casual" clothes to the specialty dining rooms and the main dining rooms. There are no formal nights but they do have "Dress up or not" nights where formals are suggested (but not required). However, if you plan to have family portraits taken with the Captain, formals would be nice. http://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/prepare-for-your-cruise/what-to-pack http://www.ncl.com/faq#packing

Some of the mini-suites and higher class of stateroom have bathtubs. However not all min-suites have tubs. You may want to look at the floor plan for the room to see if the room has a tub if that is one of your requirements for the stateroom.

Do I need to bring an electricity converter?

Asked by: Carolems
All ships have 110 V and 220 V A/C. The connector is US prongs for 110 V and European style prongs for the 220 V. There is one outlet in your room next to the dressing table and another one in the bathroom. The outlets are limited and are not located next to your bed. You may want to take an extension cord if you want to connect some device next to your bed.

Do restaurants accommodate a vegan diet?

I've noticed most restaurants on the ship have only vegetarian options and very few at that. How accommodating are they of a vegan diet? Will I find things to eat at the specialty restaurants?
Asked by: RunsOnPlants
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.

Are children allowed in the comedy club and at dueling pianos?

I noticed some places said adults only, but most places did not specify an age group. I’m specifically inquiring about the dueling pianos (Howl at the Moon) and the comedy clubs. I’m hoping there are activities my children and I can enjoy together.
Asked by: Mama34
There are family comedy shows- but there are also late night adult shows, too... check the daily cruise paper that they place on your door for times... as for Howl- as I recall, kids are allowed, but it tends to run bit late- also, don't let them run around all over the place at these shows (I know YOU wouldn't, but there are THOSE people... you know what I mean...)

Where are the smoking areas located on the Escape

Asked by: Camper44
Cigs outside by Spice H20 deck 17 or inside smoking area of casino when it’s open. Cigars only in cigar lounge on deck 8; no cigars in cigarette areas and no cigarettes in cigar area. Yes, you read that right. It’s draconian!

how dose a stateroom looks like

we will like to see the rooms
Asked by: Munecachula
If you look at the Deck plans for the ship, you should be able to navigate to your stateroom and see generic pics and floor plan to your room. I would suggest doing a generic search on any search engine and you will find plenty of websites where guests have posted pics of the room. You should also be able to find videos too.

What's the earliest time to board from original city?

Asked by: Yocko
The check-in process usually starts at around 11 AM and they will let you board the ship around 12 noon. However, you will not be allowed into your staterooms until 2-3 PM to give the staff enough time to clean the rooms. You can have lunch on board the ship and explore the public areas of the ship.

Are the pools heated?

We are traveling out of NYC at the end of March, so I would imagine it's a bit chilly until we are much further south. Additionally, would you recommend bringing coats for the rope courses, etc. during those first couple of days?
Asked by: SAMYsMom
The pools do have the option to be heated. However, the pools are in an open deck.It will be cold once you get out of the pool. As far as the rope course is concerned, it can get windy since you are up in the open area. If you plan to use it on the first couple of days, I would recommend a jacket. It will be cold on the any of the open decks even if you are walking. The ships usually do between 18-20 knots and that adds to the wind chill factor.

are there scheduled meal times like a first seating and a second seating?

I need low sodium meals and thought to sign up for the first seating like on other cruise lines..... so far all the info here is very confusing as to meal arrangements and shows with meals. What are the evening meal times for first seating?
Asked by: maj234
Nope; NCL is freestyle so you eat when you want and don’t have to sit with strangers! Some restaurants charge a fee and they require reservations. The free restaurants (Savor, Taste, Garden Buffett) are more fluid in their approach! Always let the staff know immediately about your dietary needs and they can help!
