Norwegian Cruise Line has modified their Specialty Dining Package that is one of the perks that comes with the cruise line’s Free at Sea promotion.
Previously, those who chose the Specialty Dining Package received the following number of nights for dining in specialty restaurants:
Cruises 3-4 nights: 1 night
Cruises 5-6 nights: 2 nights
Cruises 7-8 nights: 3 nights
Cruises 9-10 nights: 4 nights
Cruises 11+ nights: 5 nights
Starting tomorrow April 15, the nights allowed for specialty dining will be as follows:
Cruises 3-5 nights: 1 night
Cruises 6-8 nights: 2 nights
Cruises 9-10 nights: 3 nights
Cruises 11-14 nights: 4 nights
Cruises 15 nights: 5 nights
Norwegian Cruise Line said that the reason for this change was to improve the onboard guest experience. NCL said that this is due to an overwhelming demand in guests wanting to dine in specialty restaurants on their cruise ships.
This change only applies to guests who choose the Specialty Dining Package as one of their free perks. Guests can always add on extra nights for a fee.
Norwegian Cruise Line lists the retail value for this perk at:
1 night: $44.95 per person + 20 % gratuity
2 nights: $79 per person + 20% gratuity
3 nights: $99 per person + 20% gratuity
4 nights: $114 per person + 20% gratuity
5 nights: $129 per person + 20% gratuity
Specialty Dining Packages include one main course per person at Cagney’s and Le Bistro restaurants. Additional main courses will be charged at the a la carte price listed on the menu.
