Shipboard Policies

Internet Access

All NCL ships are equipped with 24 hour Internet Caf

Pregnancy Policy

Norwegian will make every effort to accommodate pregnant guest, providing they have not entered the 24th week of pregnancy when the cruise ends. Prior to their cruise pregnant guests should include their cruise details in an email to the Access Desk (accessdesk@ncl.com) with a medical certificate establishing due date.

Smoking Policy

Public areas throughout all NCL ships are smoke-free. Guests who smoke regular or electronic cigarettes may do so on their balcony, in the casino, or in the Cigar Bar. Guests who prefer pipes or cigars may smoke them in the Cigar Bar or designated smoking lounge. Cigarettes, pipes, and cigars are allowed outside on open decks, with the exception of food venues, sports decks, kids

Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required

Guests with food allergies should contact NCL's Access Desk to discuss NCL's policies and procedures concerning special diets and specific allergies prior to their cruise. Because the vessels are supplied all over the world, it may be easier to meet specific food allergy requirements in some countries, but very difficult in others. NCL can arrange to have no sugar and low sodium meals for guests with those specific medical dietary restrictions upon request. Refrigerators are available in many staterooms for storing insulin.

Wheelchair Access & Special Needs

NCL aims to provide a safe and accessible cruise experience for all guests with special requirements to the extent that is feasible. Guests or their travel agents must contact the Access Desk and provide a Special Accommodation Requirements Information Form in advance of their cruise. Access Desk coordinators need at least 90 days for interpreters and 60 days for all other requirements. Pre-arranging for special assistance helps travel proceed more smoothly. Assistance is arranged for at the time of booking upon identification of the guest's specific service request through the dedicated toll free Access Desk number (1-866-584-9756)

In limited situations (either on board or ashore), NCL may find it necessary to ask guests to make alternative travel arrangements, such as if a disabled guest is unable to satisfy certain specified safety and other criteria, even when provided with appropriate auxiliary aids and services. Guests who are unable to care for their basic needs (e.g. dressing, eating, and attending safety drills) MUST have a capable traveling companion. It is essential that NCL be notified of any special medical, physical, or other requirement guests may have as soon as possible, including whether the guest intends to bring a scooter with them.

Guests with Mobility Impairments
A wheelchair, scooter, or walker may be the primary mobility assistance aid for getting on and off the ship for guests who cannot walk on their own. Norwegian Cruise Line has a limited supply of wheelchairs onboard. In order to accommodate guests, Norwegian Cruise Line wheelchairs are reserved exclusively for embarkation and disembarkation situations. If a guest will require regular use of a wheelchair, it is strongly recommended that they bring their own. Guests may also make rental arrangements onboard from a limited supply of rental wheelchairs which are available onboard on a first come, first serve basis.

Motorized wheelchairs and scooters are allowed in accessible staterooms provided that they are powered by gel-cell batteries and the chargers must be adaptable to 110 volts. Should a guest choose a stateroom that has not been designated as accessible, they will need to bring a collapsible wheelchair. If the guest has a motorized wheelchair or scooter, the width must not exceed 21 inches to enter the stateroom door. All scooters and wheelchairs MUST be stored in the stateroom. Due to the safety requirements and regulations, they cannot be stored in the hallways, stairways, or any other public area. Beach wheelchairs can be rented for use on Norwegian Cruise Line's private island.

For additional details on the prearranged rental program, please contact NCL's authorized vendor, Special Needs at Sea, at (800)513-4515 or (954)585-0575, or via fax at (954)585-0577.

Alaska

Pros: Awesome ship and the amenities were first class. Really enjoyed all the ship had to offer, with the many free meal stations as well as the upgraded restaurants. The entertainment was first class, from comedy to singers and shows. .
Cons: People in position to purchase items and plans from should be able to communicate better. They do this service most every day of the year and yet they appear to have never heard the question before as if they are new. Customer service is a priority, especially when dealing with money. Please find people that can assist in these fields that can communicate well in the English language.

Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Victoria, BC.

Pros: Observation Lounge is beautiful and relaxing when not crowded. Ship is attractively appointed and very clean. Staff was very friendly. Balcony stateroom is nice.
Cons: The stage shows Havana and Jersey Boys weren't good: Disclaimer: I don't like musicals anyway, but my musical enjoying wife and other family didn't like them either. Ship can feel crowded at times. No crepe bar at the Garden Cafe on this ship because they sell them downstairs at Coco's. Go Karts and Lazer Tag book up almost immediately and cost money.
