NCL Account

 It is important that you create an online account with Norwegian Cruise Line.

This account will allow you to complete other important steps, such as online check-in, on-board dining reservations. and booking shore excursions. Once you have completed your account, go ahead and link your reservation.

 

Online check-in is important because it provides the cruise with all of your information before you're there in person. It also expedites your check-in when you arrive at the ship because they already have most of your questions answered.

Online check-in opens 120 days before your cruise, and must be completed no later than 3 days prior to sailing.

Don't worry, I will send out a reminder.

Excursions/Activities (Venice, Italy)

You may participate in the group excursions or explore independently.

A list of excursion items and group activities will be provided.

Transportation (to the cruise port on May 2, 2021)

All guests must be onboard the cruise by 3:00 pm.

Everyone may plan their morning with different adventures. We can personally help you to decide if you will need transportation from the hotel, an excursion, or if transportation will be needed at all.

Cruise Information

Excursions

If you would like to start looking into your excursions you can go to ncl.com, click on the "Explore" tab, and then click on "Shore Excursions."

 

Group Itinerary

We will provide you with more information about our Meet & Greet, Dinner/Shows, Farewell Breakfast, and surprises.

All group events are optional.

General Gratuities

Norwegian requires that their staff receive a tip at the end of every cruise (cleaning services, dining room servers, etc.). For this cruise, your gratuities are set at $105 per person.

You can pay it before the cruise (by contacting your travel advisor) or on the last day (via Norwegian Cruises).

Beverage Package

Over the years, cruises are serving less complimentary beverages. They do serve a select amount of drinks in the dining room and buffet. However, it is usually limited to hot tea/coffee, unsweetened tea, and sometimes lemonade. So, you may opt to purchase a beverage package if you did not receive it as a perk. A beverage package is an unlimited supply of drinks in the package that you choose. Everyone that receives a beverage package (even as a perk) is expected to pay the beverage taxes/gratuities ($138.60 per person).

 

If you did not choose a drink package as one of your perks, you may purchase it in your NCL account. Please remember that you do not have to purchase a drink package, or you can purchase a drink package just for the day. Some people do not drink enough to find the packages valuable. If you chose not to purchase a drink package, all of the individual drinks that you order can be charged to your room. FYI: If one person in the room chooses a drink package, everyone in the room over the age of 21 will be charged for a drink package.

Dinner

Norwegian offers Freestyle Dining so you can eat dinner at any time that you like. However, we would like us to eat dinner as a group on our first night to meet everyone. After the first night, please feel free to eat dinner during your Specialty Dining reservation time, at the buffet, with group members that you have connected with, or whenever it is convenient to you.
