Review SummaryNorwegian Cruise Line is NOT an all-inclusive vacation! Vacationers beware!
Norwegian is like a low cost airline trying to charge you for carry on bags and water wherever they can. Here are some examples:
1. Room service is a $10 charge (approx.).
2. No laundry machines are provided, and they extort you with outrageous cleaning prices per item. T-shirts and underwear (even for small children) were approximately $4 per piece!
3. What happens if you happen to bring a bottle of water onto the ship (opened or unopened)? You have to throw it away before you enter so they can sell you bottled water while you are on the ship.
4. Even the "complimentary" restaurants have many items which you have to pay for. This is frustrating if your family member finds a pay item enticing.
The list goes on!!
As an aside, my family and I did enjoy the ports and had a great time on the vacation... DESPITE Norwegian Cruise Line. Being nickeled and dimed at every turn is incredibly frustrating.
