Welcome to CM's! First there are NO
silly or trivial questions here
! In our family I'm the "planner" with all the questions (like your DW) and DH just comes along!
We sailed on the NCL Sun last December. We were on Deck 9 in a balcony cabin. There was a coffee maker. We don't drink tea, but I think if you asked for tea bags they would bring you some.
We don't have children, but an online friend brought her 8 year old son and he LOVED the Kids Club! He wanted to go anytime it was open.
The club is located where you can watch the kids through indoor "portholes" which I thought was great for parents.
Since NCL is "Freestyle", trousers, shirt and tie would be fine for formal nights. There were two dining rooms and one of them was designated formal for that night, the other wasn't (similar menus), so if you don't want to dress up at all you don't have to! (Of course we all LOVE
to see Scotsmen in kilts on formal night!
We're not "pool people", but I'm sure there are towels available on the pool deck.
We found it very easy to get around on this ship. (Some ships have many "dead ends".)
Food is so subjective! We've found that all
cruise food is too bland for our tastes, but others rave about it!
Ask as many questions as you want (or DW wants!) and have a great cruise,
