We sailed on the Norwegian Star two years ago and found the drinks to be expensive. A small glass of house white wine was $8.5 dollars. The 15% is compulsory on the US ships.On board you can buy a bucket of beer (4 for the price of five etc) which does save you money. Cocktails are usually between $7 and $10 depending what is in them. Do not let this out you off as the rest of the facilities are fabulous. One tip I do have and that is the prepaid gratuities. NCL, unlike RCI automatically add gratuities to you on board account. You do not have to accept this, although you do have to let customer relations that you object. If you are happy with this then fine, but be very aware of what they are actually charging you.

Thank you very much for your answer. It's very interesting about the gratuities. Would you advise paying your onboard account in cash rather than putting it on a credit card. Am I right that you end up paying tips twice on your drinks? They asked when I paid for the holiday about paying gratuities at the time and I declined.

How Far Is Too Far?

By Alison Ranaldi

In March last year, I booked my holiday for November this year. At the time, booking 20 months in advance seemed quite strange and hard to get excited about. On the plus side, the cost of my cruise increased by over 700 per person over the following months and it has given us lots of time to plan what we are doing and to budget the holiday by booking trips, hotels and flights at different times rather than in one go. Also, it is nice to have something to look forward to. I have had a few holi...

What has been happening over the last couple of weeks in the Cruise Industry ?There has been a lot of talk about the new Cruise ship Bliss belonging to Norwegian cruise line. I never thought there would be a day that a ship would have a race track on board . I am led to believe the track itself will be the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, with four speed settings accommodating all drivers with the speed reaching up to 30 miles per hour including a special turbo boost available on each l...

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
