Norwegian said it last raised suggested
gratuities in 2009. The charge is used to pay restaurant servers, room stewards, behind-the-scenes support staff, concierges and butlers.

Those planning to book by Feb. 28 can also prepay at the current rate.
As at most cruise
lines, gratuities at Norwegian are added automatically to the cruise
bill, but guests can opt to adjust the amount.
