Hello All,


Does anyone know if the Viva Vino packages are still sold on board?


Also if we bring wine on board and wish to pay the corkage - do we do that when we are checking-in at the ship? or do the sieze it and then we pay for it? I would prefer to pay when we check-in.


Thanks in advance.

The VIVA VINO wine program is still active - after boarding the ship look somewhere in the Main Atrium

area for it or ask at Guest Services.


Corkage fees are paid passing through the Security Check point - no money is paid at that time -

just a debit billing on your on board account - a small sticker is applied to the bottle to note the

fee has been paid. Rarely is there a case of wine not consumed - but in the event you don't uncork

a/the bottle the last day of the cruise get a refund since you are already looking at the Viva-Vino.


The Viva-Vino program is great for those folks who are devoted wine drinkers avoiding the cost

of the UBP beverage package - your cabin steward or Butler can set you up with a cork screw

and glasses for consumption in your cabin - or the restaurant server at dinner.

Thanks for posting the order form.


Could you please tell me the ship and date this came from? If I recall correctly this is quite different than the list available on the Spirit in May.


Thank you,

Although I think that the list is fleet wide - each individual ship may have variations depending on the stock on hand.

Basically there are three tiers of wines.

Best way to judge the merits of what you are about purchase is find the display in the (Main) Atrium on embarkation

day and look at the labels for information.

The V-V program is generally on display on day 1 of the cruise but is available for purchase later - ask for details.

You can mix and match between categories (tiers) but a higher pricing prevails.

Purchase is a minimum of 4 bottles in even numbers.


You could copy/print the above list and take it on board to speed your purchase/selection.

The bottles will not be immediately available -

You will be given paper receipts for each bottle -

You can request any or all of the bottles to be sent to your cabin -

If left in the care of NCL when you go to a restaurant or bar hand a receipt to the waiter/bartender

and shortly your wine will be available and served -

Unused portions may be re-corked and sent to a wine vault for another time - paper receipt returned

and marked - OR you can take the bottle(s) and glasses anywhere to finish them off.




FYI - the 750 ml bottles provide 6 4 ounce servings or the more common 4 6 ounce servings
