Norwegian's Just Cruise or Premium All Inclusive?


Are you looking to book a Norwegian Cruise Line sailing but can’t decide on 'Just Cruise’ or ‘Premium All-Inclusive’? Well, my personal advice would be to book the Premium All-Inclusive option.I was lucky enough to sail with Norwegian Cruise Line recently on Norwegian Epic (one of my favourite ships), and it was a relief that we went for Premium All-Inclusive, meaning that we knew exactly what we had to budget for.

We booked our excursions beforehand and as the drinks were included the only thing we had to pay for was any extra treats, such as speciality dining and spa treatments. When we chose to have the ‘Premium All-Inclusive’ option, it meant the service charge which is added on all drinks, was included. That saved us a lot of money (it’s normally around 18% on top of the prices you see on the drinks menu).

Some drinks packages restrict you to 15 drinks a day whereas Norwegian’s is unlimited. Some people may think goodness, I wouldn’t consume 15 drinks a day but bear in mind this isn’t just including alcohol, you’ve got your sodas, tonics and juices too. Not forgetting speciality coffees during mealtimes.

What's included in Norwegian's Premium All Inclusive?

  • All adults travelling enjoy a varied selection of branded drinks, including spirits, tap and bottled beers, wines, cocktails, non-alcoholic beers, soft drinks and juices available in all bars, lounges and dining venues throughout the cruise and at any time.
  • Children and teenagers can enjoy unlimited juices, water and soft drinks.
  • Award-winning entertainment onboard all ships. Enjoy Broadway shows, live music, comedy, dancing and much more.
