Cruise Line is offering a new version of its restaurant package that lets
guests select nights in alternative restaurants for a single price.
The cruise line's current package for specialty restaurants, the Ultimate Dining
Package ($59 per person for a three- to six-night cruise and $119 for a seven-night
cruise), allows diners to eat in a specialty restaurant every night of the
cruise, but doesn’t have an option to select some nights.
flexible Specialty Dining Package offers a savings over a la carte dining in
specialty restaurants that carry a cover charge. Diners can choose how many
nights to dine in specialty venues, with a minimum of three days. The three-day
package is $59 per person when bought online prior to embarkation.
packages are good in specialty steakhouses, Brazilian churrascarias,
French, Japanese Hibachi and Italian restaurants.
To dine in
specialty restaurants where items on the menu are priced individually, or in
entertainment-based restaurants, holders of a specialty dining package pay
an upcharge. The upcharge is $15 for Ocean Blue; $10 for
general seats and $15 for premium seats at Cirque Dreams and the Illusionarium;
$10 for Bayamo; and $7 for the Raw Bar, Pincho Tapas Bar and all sushi bar
restaurants fleet wide.
restaurant called For the Record: Dear John Hughes, coming when Norwegian Escape
debuts in October, will carry a $15 upcharge.
packages can be pre-ordered online (at greater savings) or bought in the first
two days of a cruise, beginning in early August, depending on the ship.
