Fair, outrageously expensive : $ 12.52 for a domestic beer!! We are Platinum card member, NCL did not tell us when the Welcome aboard party would be, it no longer has the Latitudes reward party, half the shows are done by the ships staff.

Review summary

I’m a Platinum card member on NCL. This is my LAST cruise with them. Drink prices are outrageous, a 20 percent gratuity is added on everything, No more Latitude rewards parties for Gold, Platinum card members. NCL tours are double the cost for tours offered ashore. Our friends toke the day tour to Paris, stopped only at Effiel tower the view was through a fence. Did not stop at Notra Dome or Arch D Triumph , just drove by !! Cost : $ 400 !! Demanded their money back, NCL re credited them 30 percent.
