Cost is approximately 287.98 per person for the 3 day cruise to the Bahamas, which includes food/ beverages. The following explains the cost:
Fare per guest: $109; NCF fee: $90; Taxes: 88.98;
Please remember that all food costs are covered with the booking of the room/board. You should have no food or beverage costs with the exception of room service and/or alcohol.
Norwegian has Freestyle Dining which means that there is complimentary food available at all hours without the need for a reservation. However, there are certain restaurants on-board that are nicer and do require a reservation and come with additional costs: http://www.ncl.com/freestyle-cruise/freestyle-dining
I'd like to bring my partner/spouse/friend along, will there be a rate for including these guests?
Yes. Cabins are a two person accommodation. Each guest is responsible for the $287.98 fare. There are two twin beds provided. Rooms with a double bed may be reserved but at an additional fee. A third person may also share the room. A three person room will have a lower cost, but 3 person reservations must be booked under a different category (see below)
Can I opt to room alone?
Singles within the group must pay 200% of the adult group fare or approximately $486.98 for the 3 day cruise. The most economical option is to share a room.
(2 person total: $575.96; 3 person total: $833.94). To book for 3 people, the individuals would need to book outside of the group reservation under category: I.D. The reservation for our group is currently under I.F. This shouldn't be a problem if the reservation is done in 60 days prior to sailing.
