Norwegian Cruise Line is set to offer an all-inclusive package, available for a limited time on all 2015 sailings from three to 14 days fleetwide (excluding back-to-back sailings and Pride of America). The offer is only available on new reservations made from August 4 through August 29.
The all-inclusive package, which Norwegian says represents a $2400 value per stateroom, includes signature dining, alcoholic beverages, unlimited soda, shore excursions, internet access, service charges and more.
“Norwegian Cruise Line is constantly innovating and this new, truly all-inclusive package offers extraordinary value to cruisers and travel advisors and helps put a focus on 2015 business,” said Vicky Garcia, COO and co-owner of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “Travel advisors can now earn additional commission when they sell the pre-paid packages, which include all-inclusive drinks, specialty dining, shore excursions and provides a 10 percent discount on cruise fare among other benefits. Also, this all-inclusive offer is combinable with other sales or promotions that are currently in the market which simplifies the message. Norwegian Cruise Line is turning travel advisors into travel heroes for their clients with this new package while rewarding travel advisors for promoting the brand.”
“Based on the popularity of our Fly, Cruise and Stay vacations, along with our onboard dining and beverage packages, we are now offering the first All-Inclusive package for our guests who want to experience all that the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Cruising has to offer,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “Always an innovator, we are making it easy for those that want everything included in their cruise vacation with the option of our All-Inclusive package.”
The All-Inclusive package is available for 2015 sailings from three to 14 days in length, is priced by the number of days, and is available for all stateroom categories, including the Haven by Norwegian. When adding the All-Inclusive to a selected cruise, guests receive 10 percent off the cruise fare. For a seven-day cruise, the $899 package includes the Ultimate Dining package; the Ultimate Beverage package; shore excursion credit of $200 per person, pre-paid daily service charges; a 250-minute Internet package per person; 20 photos of any size; chocolate-covered strawberries; a bottle of wine; one bingo session and six bottles of water. For cruises from three to five days, the shore excursion credit is $100 per person; and for sailings from 9-14 days, the package includes 12 bottles of water.
As part of the All-Inclusive offer, Norwegian’s Ultimate Dining package provides complimentary access to one of the line’s specialty restaurants every night of the cruise, including Cagney’s, the popular steakhouse; French bistro, Italian restaurant, Moderno Churrascaria, Asian-Fusion restaurant and more. The Ultimate Beverage package includes a variety of spirits, cocktails, draft beer, bottled beer and glasses of wine up to $10 and unlimited fountain soda and juices at all bars, lounges, restaurants and on Norwegian’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay.
