Will there be Easter Sunday religious service on the Bermuda 4/19 sailing?

Asked by: Alleluia
No. NCL doesn't sponsor any kind of religious services onboard their ship. However, if there is a priest travelling as a passenger, they are allowed to conduct religious ceremonies onboard the ship.

Does the ship have a washer and dryer on board for passenger use?

Asked by: pchristi
No. 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.

What does pre-paid service charges cover

Asked by: Murrdog
To make tipping easy for the guests, you don't have to carry cash or add a tip every time you are at a restaurant or use any of the other services like room service, laundry etc. The service charge that is added to your bill is shared by all the staff who provide you service and also the staff who work behind the scenes. It's quite common practice in the cruising industry to have this charge added to your room charges.

Dinner from 5:30 onward.

What is the dress code for the specialty restaurants

Asked by: Mjturner
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.

My son is in a wheelchair. We will be on Norwegian Gem. How accessible are the different areas of the ship?

Asked by: Toddy24
A standard size chair fits all areas, but will not fit thru regular suite entrances. Depending on your sons size chair anything wider than an 18" seat with a wheel-wheel open span of 23" will not fit into your room door entry, unless you're booked for a handicap room. Electric chairs are left outside your room or in a designated alcove on your floor. Call NCL special services for more info.

On my Amenity Confirmation, I have Item # CHS50 ($50 per shore ex crd) and CHSULM (Choice shore excursion credit).

Is each of these items valid at every one of the 10 ports on my cruise? Is each one $50 x 10 ports = $500 value? And the two items combined would be worth 10 x $50 x 2 for a total value of $1000 in shore excursion credits?
Asked by: robertas
The shore excursion credits are per stateroom and not per person and you cannot combine the credits. At each port you can only use a maximum of $50 per port.
