Need an idea or three? I have you covered. Based on how you like to travel we can find the perfect Norwegian cruise line vacation for your. Norwegian offers large ships with all the bells and whistles including go-karts, laser tags and water parks to keep the kids and family busy. Yet, the also offer medium size ships with around 2,000 people. The smaller ships offer fewer kid friendly addons, making them a better vacation for adults, or those who want to escape children and large families. Norwegian really has a ship for everyone.
Finally, when booking via Scott & Thomas, most NCL cruises have exclusive onboard credit options. These deals are ONLY available when booking via S&T. You will not get this when booking direct. Just one more reason to use a travel agent!
Breaking Down the Take 5 Promo
As I was saying earlier, nothing is really free. At least not during a promo. NCL take 5 event is offering a lot of free addons for their cruises. Yet, like any good promotion there are limitations. Below I will break down what each of the Take 5 Promos actually mean. some of them are awesome and can save you thousands on your vacation, others are more limiting.
Norwegian Open Bar
Usually costing $109 a day per person, when purchasing the package, the open bar package adds up fast. But then again so does paying up to $15 per drink. If you drink several drinks a day, as most people do while at Sea or even enjoy sodas and juices, then the open bar package is for you. This bonus is valid for 1-8 guests on the same reservation.
With the Unlimited Open Bar Package, enjoy a wide selection of beverages both on board and at Great Stirrup Cay. Here’s what you get:
- Select, premium cocktails & spirits under $15 USD(such as Patron Silver, Grey Goose and more)
- A variety of beer and wine by the glass under $15 USD
- 20% off all bottles of champagne and wine
- Unlimited soft drinks and juices
- (6) 1L Flow Water bottles delivered to your stateroom on embarkation day*
You must be 21 years of age to drink while at Sea with Norwegian. If you are under 21 then you’ll enjoy the Soda package instead. Since the NCL Open Bar is now included in your cruise price, you can save over $700 per person on 7 day cruise!
Free Specialty Dining
Part of the onboard experience is eating. We all love to eat, and NCL knows that. With Free specialty dining guests can check out one of the many specialty restaurants onboard for free. Depending on the length of the cruise and stateroom category you may actually receive up to 3 meals. This is easily another $50-$150 saved per person! This bonus is valid for guest 1 & 2 only.
Wi-fi at sea can be painfully slow and not always very consistent. Cruise lines have been offering WI-FI for years, but not very good Wi-fi. Thankfully Starlink is coming to Hurtigruten Expeditions and Royal Caribbean. Norwegian hasn’t upgraded yet. With that said the free wi-fi is valid for guests 1 and 2 in each stateroom and is limited by time. The longer the cruise the more free internet you receive.
- 75 minutes per person for 3-6 Day Cruises.
- 150 minutes per person for 7-11 Day Cruises.
- 300 minutes per person for 12+ Day Cruises
Free Shore Excursions
Spice up your vacating and get off the ship! See more than the floating all inclusive hotel and explore your stops with a $50 credit. This offer is applicable to first guest on the cruise reservation. The first guest shall receive free shore excursions priced at $50 or less. If the excursion cost more than $50 then the final price will be less $50. It’s not really FREE FREE, but it could be.
Free 3rd and 4th Guests
Sail with the entire family on Norwegian Cruise line. Right now the 3rd and 4th guest sails free! This is only valid on select sailings. Contact your travel agent, aka me, to find out what cruises qualify. If the guests do not sale free, there’s also a secondary promotion where the 2nd and 3rd guests are only $99. Which is nearly free. Due note you must pay port fees and taxes for these guests.
Upgrade your vacation
Do you not like to be limited? If you want to rock out at sea, then consider the new Free at Sea Plus. Elevate your cruise experience with our widest beverage selection onboard, more specialty dining, unlimited Wi-Fi and more shore excursion credits. Free At Sea Plus, the ultimate vacation upgrade in one package costs just an additional $49 a day and comes with hundreds of dollars in value. Just tell your travel agent to add Free at Sea Plus.
If you are thinking about taking a vacation, now is the perfect time to choose Norwegian Cruise Line. With 50% off cruises and the Take 5 event, cruising has never been better. Select cruises offer the 3rd and 4th guest free, plus free airfare. There’s never been a better time to book a floating all inclusive hotel, which happens to let you explore new destinations too. Covid restrictions have been relaxed and NCL is inviting you back without the need to test before sailing or prove your vaccination status on most sailings. Contact your travel agent today to find your cruise and possibly enjoy additional onboard credit for booking via a travel agent. Just one of the many reasons you should still use a travel agent.
