NCL Expands Its All-Inclusive Offerings


Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is expanding its all-inclusive offerings beginning in January when Norwegian Sky guests (21 and over) sailing out of Miami will enjoy free unlimited beer, wine and premium spirits.

“We’re taking Freestyle Cruising to the next level to provide our guests with an experience unmatched by any other contemporary cruise line,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief operating officer for NCL. “Norwegian Sky guests will have the freedom to enjoy a cruise vacation the way they desire – whether it’s lounging by the pool with a margarita, having a laugh at a comedy show, catching up on their favourite book on their balcony, or indulging in fine dining – all included in their cruise fare.”

Guests will enjoy for free a variety of unlimited premium spirits, innovative cocktails curated by the award-winning mixologists from Miami’s Bar Lab, wines by the glass and bottled or draft beer up to $11 aboard Norwegian Sky in 2016 and beyond. Guests three to 21 years of age will enjoy unlimited sodas and juice throughout their cruise.

Dana Gain, national director of sales for Norwegian in Canada, described the initiative as a win-win for consumers and agents.

“We are very excited to announce all-inclusive cruising on Norwegian Sky. This is truly the ultimate Freestyle Cruising experience for our guests, who can now enjoy free dining, free entertainment and free unlimited premium brand drinks,” said Gain. “It’s a win for agents, who have a new more inclusive product for their clients at a better value‎, and will ultimately drive demand to maintain pricing and protect agent commissions.”

Norwegian Sky sails three- and four-day roundtrip cruises from Miami to the Bahamas year-round. The new all-inclusive experience will also provide guests with the freedom to enjoy unlimited premium beverages while soaking up the sun on Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian’s private island in the Bahamas.
