Yes, a charge of $12 is added to your account daily. To remove this you have to go to reception. Many Brits do, although the Americans seem to think it's very fair. We have paid ours in advance and have also received our fuel rebate back on our credit card which makes up for a good bit of this. We're disembarking at Barcelona as you step on board! Enjoy.-Jo.
Thank you that was most helpful.
Hi there - not sure if it is compulsory on ncl cruises, but it is not compulsory on p&o, also most of the organised trips you can do yourself, and they will work out a lot cheaper, in most ports there are taxi and mini buses waiting for passengers off the cruise ships, best bet is to share a taxi or mini bus with other people, but make sure you agree the price with the driver before you leave the port.
Doesn’t the word “Compulsory” say something to you? ……Neil.
