NCL Free At Sea Packages

Recommended Posts

We're booked onto the Norwegian Escapes Repo TA crossing, Southampton - Part Canaveral in late October.


I know there will be some doubt as to whether or not it actually happens but, if it should, I'm hoping for some info re the Free at Sea package.


We've opted for the drinks and dining packages but are unclear re the attached gratuities??  In the small print it says "Gratuities including", which we assumed meant there was nothing else to pay but I've read that in fact gratuities ARE added on a daily basis and these are included in the stateroom account, to be settled at the end of the cruise.


No biggy as £99 + $20 per day is still good value as we like a drink, but just wondering if someone can confirm if gratuities on these packages are included or extra??

If you have booked in the UK and paid in £ then there is nothing left to pay on board - if you look at your account you will see the breakdown of the price listed like this


Cruise fare,

Fuel Suppl (usually NA)

Gov't taxes, fees and port Expenses

Guest total ( the sum of the above)


then a new line saying Prepaid Service Charges then the total price to pay


The Ts&Cs for the US customers are totally different and have a daily charge added to your account on board plus tips added to the drinks package at the time you pay for the cruise.
