Now through June 9, Norwegian Cruise Line is offering all five “Free at Sea” perks to anyone that books a three-night or longer sailing.

The “Free at Sea” perk promotion has been going on for years with NCL, and every so often the cruise line allows guests to take advantage of all five.

The company says they are seeing an increase in bookings for 2021 and wants to build on the momentum by offering the additional perks to all categories of staterooms. The overall value of all five perks adds up to $2900.

Perks include the free open bar, free specialty dining, free shore excursions, free wifi, and kids sail free. Oceanview and above sailings are eligible for free or reduced airfare on sailings that include the air option.

Recent Changes 

In April, Norwegian made some changes to its dining program, limiting the number of free nights you get per sailing.

Guests sailing three to five nights will still get one free specialty dining credit while six to eight-night cruisers will now get two nights of dining, previously three nights.

Norwegian announced they were raising the cost of its daily service fee (aka gratuities) on April 1. The new price jumped to $15.50 per person, per day for guests in an interior, oceanview, balcony and minisuite categories, up from $15. And to $18.50 per person, per day for guests in any suite or The Haven, up from $18.

Terms and Conditions 

There are a couple of limitations to this promotion. If you book the “Sail Away” fare (generally assigned to last-minute bookings) you will only receive a $50 discount per shore excursion. The internet package varies by the length of the cruise and guests sailing solo will have to pay double occupancy to take advantage of the five perks. Guests must prepay the service fees on both the dining and beverage packages.
