Norwegian Cruise Line Stops All-inclusive Bar Program

By ,   June 23, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line announced they are eliminating the all-inclusive bar program onboard Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Sky, effective for itineraries on or after September 7, 2019. In 2015, NCL announced that both ships would include open bars as part of the fare for all passengers 21 years and older.

In a statement, the cruise line said that any guests sailing on Norwegian Sky and Sun after September 7, who booked a cruise that included Free Open Bar at time of purchase, would "still be able to enjoy the unlimited open bar.”

Passengers sailing the two vessels may continue to enjoy an unlimited open bar and complimentary specialty dining, free WiFi, shore trip credits, the option to have family and friends sail free, and reduced or free airfare, through the ongoing Free at Sea program of the brand.

Norwegian Sun cruise ship

Norwegian Sun currently offers 3- and 4-night voyages from Port Canaveral FL to the Bahamas. Norwegian Sky is homeported in Miami FL and also sails 3- and 4-night roundtrips to the Bahamas. Both cruise liners were visiting Havana Cuba until the US travel ban implemented earlier this month.
