A few days ago, Cruise Fever reported on increased charges and fees from several cruise lines that went into effect this week. Now, Norwegian Cruise Line has raised the price of their convenience charge for room service by 25% on their cruise ships.
The room service convenience charge is now $9.95 per order, up from $7.95. Morning coffee and continental breakfast will continue to be complimentary. Norwegian has the following on their website in the FAQ about room service:
“Norwegian Cruise Line has introduced an enhanced room service menu. The new menu offers an expanded selection for breakfast, in addition to a wider variety of options available 24 hours. Individual items on the menu remain available on a complimentary basis and a convenience charge of up to $9.95 USD will be added to each order placed (Morning coffee, continental breakfast and orders placed by guests sailing in The Haven will not attract a charge).
A 20% gratuity and beverage service charge will be added for non-complimentary beverages and special occasion items. Room service is one of up to 29 dining options offered across the fleet, and guests continue to be able to enjoy a wide array of complimentary choices onboard 24 hours a day.”
Norwegian Cruise Line first began to charge for room service four and a half years ago.
