  1. I'm on the Sun right now. Brought some plastic straws in case I really need them (for frozen strawberry daiquiri only). I got a soft drink from the Starbucks this afternoon. I asked for a straw, expecting a paper one. I got a plastic one!! I suspect this is because they are "Starbucks", not "NCL"
  2. I received an e-m from NCL this week stating no minimum required.
  3. The ncl website is the ONLY site I've ever NOT been able to view in english when I am in Panama. Very frustrating and I never did figure it out. I got adept at doing searches in spanish.
  4. You can see the service charge info here: https://www.ncl.com/faq#what-is-onboard-service-charge The open bar cruises have a higher daily charge, so I am guessing no charge per order. From the link above: How much are the service charges? For bookings made prior to April 1st, 2019, that prepay their service charges before their sail date: For all ships excluding Norwegian Sky All-Inclusive and Norwegian Sun All-Inclusive $17.50 USD per person per day for The Haven, Concierge and Suites; $14.50 USD per person per day for all other stateroom types Norwegian Sky All-Inclusive and Norwegian Sun All-Inclusive $23 USD per person per day for Suites; $20 USD per person per day for all other stateroom types For bookings made on or after April 1, 2019 or for sailings April 1, 2019 and beyond whose service charges have not been prepaid: For all ships excluding Norwegian Sky All-Inclusive and Norwegian Sun All-Inclusive $18 USD per person per day for The Haven, Concierge and Suites $15 USD per person per day for all other stateroom types Norwegian Sky All-Inclusive and Norwegian Sun All-Inclusive
  5. I looked in my e-m and didn't find it easily. I did find some quotes in an e-m about it. It was referred to as an OFAC form and " Norwegian Cruise Line Travel Affidavit " Try going here and scrolling down to the section on Cuba https://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/cruise-travel-documents
  6. I'm going in April. The NCL cruise consultant told us about the Visa requirement when we booked and I opted to get the visa through NCL. The price was added to my cruise invoice. On the NCL website, when I go to "vacation summary" and click on the + beside "payment", it shows the Visa Fee as a separate $75 right next to Cruise Fare. What I almost missed is that there is actually a form that is e-mailed to you which you need to fill out and submit.
  7. I almost always book guarantee rooms. As long as you don't care if you might be in a slightly noisy spot or which side of ship or which deck, it is great to save the money!
  8. I found out by looking at the daily service charge which is higher for the "open bar" sailings - and mine are the higher amount.
  9. I just confirmed this morning that my upcoming cruise on the Sun is "all-inclusive". However, I'm currently on vacation in Panama and the ncl website is the only one I've accessed so far that I have been unable to get in english . . . so I can't read about what is & isn't included. I booked "sailaway" and my friends booked a regular inside room. Do we both get all-inclusive? What is included? Strawberry Daquiris (either virgin or with rum)? Soft drinks? (has anyone ever found root beer on the Sun??) any wines? Thanks!!
  10. For me, a huge difference between NCL and other cruise lines is the dining. NCL is more informal. I feel comfortable wearing nice jeans in the regular main dining room. I also like not having an assigned time / place for dinner. Some of the other cruise lines are doing this now also, but I was introduced to it on NCL.
