Effective January 1, Norwegian Cruise Line revised their final deposit schedule and cancellation policy. Under the new policy, guests will be required to pay their final deposit 76 to 90 days before the sailing (depending on the cruise length), eliminating the previous 60 day final deposit date.
New Payment/Deposit Schedule
- 1 day cruise, $50 deposit, final payment due 75 days prior to sailing
- 2-6 day cruises, $100 deposit, final payment due 75 days prior to sailing
- 7-9 day cruises, $250 deposit, final payment due 90 days prior to sailing
- 10+ day cruises, $400 deposit, final payment due 90 days prior to sailing

Norwegian has also tightened the reins on guests who cancel within a certain time frame before sailing. Penalties are being increased and time to cancel has been shortened.
