Frequently Asked Questions About Norwegian Cruises

  • What kind of trips can I take with you?

    Norwegian Cruise Lines have multiple kinds of trips available for its guests. It all depends on your taste and preference of your destination. They have regular cruises that visit almost all of the destinations but if you are looking for something special then they also offer themed kind of cruises which are designed with certain specifications.

  • How much would a tour cost?

    Norwegian Cruise Lines have so many different cruises and they offer so many different packages that it is very difficult to suggest a number that will reflect the price of the package of your preferred cruise. But if you are still willing to have an idea of what it may cost to go on a cruise then we would like to mention here that the prices for Norwegian cruise per person could be as low as $200 and may go up to $40000. The variation in the price is because of the fact that low budget cruise may only take you to single destination and may last for only a couple of days and the price may only include accommodation and meals but if you want to have a luxury cruise experience on a longer journey with all the amenities included in the package then you might have to pay higher price for that.

Minimum Age Policy on Norwegian Cruises

Infants sailing onboard a Norwegian vessel must be at least six months of age at time of sailing. However, for voyages that have 3 or more consecutive days at sea, the infant must be at least 12 months old at time of sailing. A minor is defined as an individual under 18 years of age at the time of embarkation. A young adult is defined as an individual between the ages of 18 and 20. Company policy dictates that a passenger under 21 years of age must be accompanied in the same or connecting stateroom by a passenger 21 years of age or older at the time of embarkation. For passengers under the age of 18 traveling with an accompanying adult, who is not the minor's parent or legal guardian, a Parent/Guardian Consent Release Form, that authorizes the minor's travel and further authorizes medical treatment in case of an emergency must be delivered to a Norwegian representative at the pier during check-in. Failure to produce this letter at embarkation may result in boarding being denied, with no refund of cruise fare provided. Note: Two people under the age of 21 may travel together in the same stateroom if they are a married couple and provide proof of marriage to a Norwegian representative at the pier before embarkation.

If you’re 18 through 20 years of age and you have the written consent of your parents or guardian (parent or guardian must be on board), you can purchase beer or wine for yourself only when the ship is sailing in international waters (except on Alaska and Hawai‘i cruises where you must be 21 years of age to consume or purchase alcohol of any kind).* If you want to gamble in our casinos, you must have a valid ID showing you are 18 years or older. If a Guest under the age of 18 wins in the casino and cannot provide proof of age, he or she will not be paid the winnings. There is no casino on Pride of America.

Dining on Norwegian Cruises

Dine the Way You Want
We believe lunch is when you're hungry. Same goes for breakfast and dinner. You'll never have to drag yourself out of bed for a forced breakfast seating at 7:45 am or interrupt whatever you're doing so you can make it to a dinner seating precisely at 5:45 pm. We also think you should eat with whomever you want so we'll never choose your dining partners for you. Want to meet someone new? We can arrange that, too.

More Restaurants Than Days of the Week
Don't be misled by other cruise lines' dining 'options.' They really come down to some fast-food choices or one big dining hall where you often have to eat with strangers. NCL has a wide variety of actual restaurants with great, new signature dishes in every one. And, with up to 13 different restaurants and dining rooms on board, like Le Bistro, NCL's exclusive French bistro, and Cagney's, NCL's scrumptious steakhouse, you'll find something to satisfy your every craving, every night of your cruise.

Steak and a dry martini after a great day of snorkeling. Sushi to follow lounging by the pool all day. French or Mediterranean after a long day of shopping. Tapas or Tex-Mex before you hit the casino. Pasta and a nice bottle of wine post-sightseeing. Teppanyaki between swimming and checking out the jazz singer. Made-to-order specials at the buffet's action stations when you're finished with your massage. Burgers and pizza to celebrate your youngest's birthday. Or perhaps the most romantic meal of all served in the private seclusion of your balcony. With so many delicious choices, you can certainly eat whatever you want.

Save the Tie for the Boardroom
Freestyle Cruising is not too dressy, not too casual. We call it 'resort casual.' You'll call it being on vacation. By day, almost anything goes. Khakis, skirts, jeans, casual tops, shorts, or whatever are all fine. Casual is perfect in NCL's restaurants too. Even if you've just been at the pool and don't feel like changing, no worries. Swimwear with a cover-up is fine at the buffet and outdoor restaurant. At night, it's relaxed all over the ship. When you're ready for dinner, it's collared shirts and pants or nice jeans for guys. Slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops are perfect for women. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in NCL's restaurants whenever. If you want to dress up and add a little glamour when you dine out, feel free - we've reserved a restaurant just for that. And remember to pack a sweater - air conditioning can be chilly.

Best 'Buffet' at Sea
Forget about those cafeteria lines. Our buffet has a huge salad bar and 'action stations' where you can get made-to-order specialties. Start your day with freshly squeezed juices, a Bloody Mary or a refreshing Bellini. Have meat carved exactly to your liking or choose your favorites to be thrown on the grill. Enjoy a pasta dish made with all of your favorite ingredients, then try sweet dessert crepes with fillings of your choice. You can even whet your appetite the day you board with a sampling of dishes from all of NCL's great restaurants, and, when you need a little boost or just a place to relax, head to the Java Café for delicious Lavazza coffee drinks and special desserts.

Lobster Galore
Lobster lovers of the world will rejoice because NCL has lobster dishes every single night. And choose one night of your cruise for an absolute lobster feast.

Don't Go Away Hungry
Breakfast doesn't stop being the most important meal of the day just because it's the last day of your trip. So take your time. Relax. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and start your day off right. Leave the waking up super early, waiting in a crowded public area then waiting some more to the other cruise lines. When it's time to go, we'll let you know.

Fuel Surcharge Policy on Norwegian Cruises

Norwegian Cruise Line has eliminated its fuel surcharge effective for all voyages departing in 2009. NCL will refund the fuel supplement in the form of an on-board credit for all 2009 bookings within the final payment period. All existing 2009 bookings outside of the final payment period will be adjusted to remove the fuel supplement and NCL will revise the final payment amount. NCL is suspending the company's fuel supplement for all voyages departing in 2009 at this time. The Company reserves the right to re-instate the fuel supplement for all guests should the price of light sweet crude oil according to the NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange Index) increase above $65 per barrel. NCL may collect any fuel supplement charge in effect at the time of sailing, even if the cruise fare has been paid in full.

Tipping Policy on Norwegian Cruises

Effective April 1, 2018:

Norwegian’s discretionary daily service charges make it easy for guests to provide gratuities to key onboard staff who provide superior guest service during the cruise, including their room steward, restaurant servers and behind-the-scenes support staff.

The new rates for all ships:

  • $14.50 per person per day for any category up to a Mini-Suite Stateroom.  
  • $17.50 per person per day for any suite or Haven category. 

Any guest that has made a booking by March 31, 2018 will have the option of prepaying their service charges at the current rate if done prior to sail date. Guests with existing cruise reservations who have already pre-paid their service charges at the current rate are not affected.

Guest satisfaction is the highest priority at Norwegian Cruise Line. We have structured a guest satisfaction program designed to handle any concerns about service or on-board product quickly and efficiently. However, in the event a service issue should arise during your cruise please let NCL's on-board reception desk staff know right away, so that NCL can address these in a timely manner. It is NCL's goal to reach a satisfactory solution to any issue when it happens and make sure NCL's guests can focus on enjoying their cruise. Should your concerns not be met with satisfaction you can adjust the charges.

Smoking Policy on Norwegian Cruises

In an effort to diminish the presence of smoke indoors, cigarette smoking is only permitted in the casino, where ashtrays and appropriate signage will be displayed.

Guests may utilize the enclosed cigar bars on board Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Dawn and Norwegian Spirit for cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking.

In addition, the policy allows guests to smoke cigarettes, cigars and pipes in outdoor public guest spaces and open decks, where designated by the appropriate signage. Smoking is not permitted near outdoor venues which serve food, in open spaces such as the jogging track, sport complex, children's pool and in The Haven outdoor areas.

We had a great time! This was a fantastic cruise!


This Mediterranean Cruise was an interesting and well organized tour of several ports and nearby cities in Greece, Turkey, Itally and France.


Everything was good except some ethnic food. Per my experience with two cruises in NCL Bliss and one in NCL Breakaway, the Indian food served here lacked in variety and quality. Also, same items, such as Beef keema matar was served only for beef eaters. An alternative meat like chicken or lamb could have been replaced beef for non-beef eaters for once. Otherwise food was good.


Everything was great. I will watch the age of ships on future bookings. The staff onboard was superb.


The NCL Pride of America cruise is a great way to see the Hawaiian Islands. The ship travels at night so you have all day to see the sights. The ship is not the newest and does not have a casino or the water slides of the new super ships but it is clean and comfortable
