Are the meals included?
Yes, prepare to get spoiled! Wonderful meals are included and plentiful while on board the ship at a variety of complementary restaurants. There are also some optional specialty restaurants which cost a bit extra, and they are well worth the extra cover charge if you appreciate gourmet food. Want a second helping? Just ask! When not on the ship, meals are your responsibility unless you are on an excursion that specifically states that a meal will be provided.
What other fees will be necessary on board the ship?
Beverages and gratuities for the ship staff are extra. Norwegian Cruise Lines recommends a minimum of $12.00 per day in gratuities, which is automatically added to your shipboard account at the end of the week. This amount can be adjusted up or down, but we think you’ll agree that this is a low figure once you have experienced the typical service of a Norwegian Cruise ship. Beverages purchased on board are charged to your room, including a gratuity charged at point of service. Look into a non-alcoholic beverage plan to save money if you drink a lot of soda or bottled water. Alcoholic beverages are always extra. Bottles of alcohol may not be brought onto the ship.
