Default Just Booked 1st NCL Cruise on Epic Leaving Next Week

Woo Hoo

I am looking on line to make some reservations and thought I would also be able to pre book the beverage package and soda package for my daughter but its not there.

Is this usually something we have to wait till we get on board to purchase?

No, but it seems that you need to call to prebook those, I didn't find those items from "Gifts and more" section of MyNCL either.

Here is the info: http://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/gifts-and-more

I personally prefer to buy the soda package onboard - that way you get your cup and sticker right away. In the past when we've pre-booked, we had to wait until we got in our cabins to get the soda cup and sticker. It can be a few hours before the cabins are ready.

But you also end up paying sales tax in most ports when purchasing as soon as you board the ship.

Agree. On the Med cruise I pre-purchased everything I could. Saves 21% tax.

OP, just call NCL and you can buy your beverage packages.

I second this!

I'm jealous that your cruise is so soon! I still have six and a half months until I get back on the Epic! Oh well, that's better than the 13 months I had when I first booked! lol
