Why we love this cruise line

NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE SHIPS

This cruise line stays innovative and creative to stay at the top of its game.

The standard rule is that all guests must be at least 21 years of age on the day of embarkation in order to be allowed to consume alcohol. Those aged 18-20 are permitted to buy and drink beer and wine if the ship is 3 miles outside of US territorial waters so long as they have permission from a parent or legal guardian, who must accompany the guest under 21 to the ship’s Reception Desk and provide proof of age and of their relationship. The guest under 21 must also complete a Young Adult Alcoholic Beverage Waiver form. All guests must be at least 21 to consume alcohol on all cruises in Hawaii and Alaska. However guests need only be 18 years of age or older to consume alcohol on roundtrip European cruises and need not complete the waiver form.

Guests are not allowed to bring any alcoholic drinks onboard, with the exception of drinks purchased at ports of call, which will be handed to the crew on getting back onboard the ship. The alcohol will then be returned to your stateroom at the end of your cruise.

Norwegian Cruise Line defines those under 18 as minors and those between 18 and 20 as young adults. All passengers under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a passenger aged 21 or above in either the same stateroom or a connecting stateroom. However two guests under the age of 21 can travel and stay in the stateroom if they are a married couple and hand appropriate proof to a representative of Norwegian Cruise Line before check-in. If a guest under 18 is travelling with an adult who isn’t a parent or legal guardian, a Parent/Guardian Consent & Release Form is required to authorise the travel and emergency medical treatment of the minor. This form must be handed to a representative of Norwegian Cruise Line during check-in. This form is essential as embarkation may be refused and no refund for your cruise given should you not produced this form. 

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Freestyle Cruising policy means that there aren’t strict dress codes. Resort Casual attire is accepted in all venues during the evening. Shorts are only accepted in the buffet and jeans are accepted in most restaurants. Those who want to dress up and wear something more formal on an evening are more than welcome to do so. Freestyle Cruising allows guests to dress how they want when they want and wants guests to dress in a way in which they feel comfortable.

All children must be at least 6 months of age at the time of embarkation. This age limit increases to 12 months for all cruises that feature 3 or more consecutive days at sea.

Pregnant women should not sail if they will enter their 24th week of pregnancy at any point during their whole journey. A doctor’s certificate confirming your health and due date is required. The cruise line will not hold itself responsible for any complications that may arise during your cruise. Contact the Guest Services Team at 1.866.625.11647 for more information.

Smoking is prohibited except in designated areas. Guests staying in a balcony stateroom may smoke only on the balcony and are only allowed to smoke cigarettes. Anyone found smoking in their stateroom will face a flat charge of $250.00.

Smoking is not allowed in all public interior areas, except for in the casino. There are enclosed cigar bars where guests may smoke cigars, pipes and cigarettes on the following ships: Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Spirit.

There are also designated outdoor areas where guests may smoke pipes, cigars and cigarettes. All designated smoking areas have clear signage. 

Gratuities can be pre-paid up to 24 hours before sailing and the rate of $12.00 will be shown separately to the overall price of your holiday. This rate applies for every guest over three for every day of the cruise and is fully refundable if you choose to cancel your cruise. Should you wish to pay once onboard, simply state this intention at booking or at least two weeks before embarkation day and the gratuities can then be added to your shipboard account. In addition to this, a gratuity of 15% for drinks bills and 18& for salon and spa services will be added to you shipboard account.

The amount you pay in gratuities can be adjusted should you feel you haven’t experienced a good enough level of service. However, if you have pre-paid your gratuities and you wish for a refund, you must write to NCL’s Guest Relations department once the cruise is over.
