NCL Jewel (1st time NCL) Gazillion Questions

Norwegian Cruise Line - boards.cruisecritic.com
Have cruised a lot, but this is my 1st time on NCL. Am seeing things that are different than the other lines (can't bring wine onboard for cabin without paying a cork fee, really?).

Please feel free to share anything you think will be helpful...I'm on a 10-night Alaska sailing Seattle/Vancouver...only new ports are Icy Point Strait and Prince Rupert (familiar with the rest).

So here are my questions:

Any chance there's a music venue with classic rock music?

Heard NCL doesn't do 'formal/elegant' nights...true?

Are the shows good?

Do they open the bow for Glacier viewings?

Heard there's a "2nd beverage is $2" -- how does that work?

Is 'freestyle' dining a pain or do you like it?

Should we bother with any of the surcharge restaurants?

Is the Cirque show good?

Anything onboard that you'd call "don't miss it"?

Should I do the beverage package?

Is the internet worth the money?

Thanks much!!
