Norwegian Cruise Line increases the automatic gratuities charged to passenger accounts. The new rates take effect on April 1, 2018.
The cruise line informed travel agents of the “nominal adjustment” to daily service charges in an email.
The new rates for standard staterooms and mini-suites go from US$13.99 to US$14.50 per guest, per day. Charges for The Haven as well as other suite-level categories go from US$16.99 to US$17.50 per guest, per day.
Clients with bookings by March 31 are allowed to prepay gratuities at the current rates. Payments have to be made before the sail date. In case passengers have already prepaid gratuities, they will not be affected by the changes.
