Free at Sea with Norwegian Cruise Line

The Free at Sea promotion is available for all cruises of three nights or more and includes free perks like a drink package, free specialty dining, free Wifi minutes, and shore excursion credits.
Some other NCL "free" promotion includes Free Kids, Free Airfare.

Free Open Bar

The most popular Norwegian Free at Sea perk to choose is the free open bar. This allows you to enjoy unlimited soft drinks, spirits, cocktails, wine by the glass, and bottled or draft beer, priced at up to $15 per drink.

At a $99 value per day, choosing the open bar perk will save you the most money, but only if you're planning to drink several adult beverages per day.

But be aware that all guests in the same cabins have to take the free at sea promotion - for minors will receive the soda package.

Free Speciality Dining

Norwegian's specialty restaurants are definitely something to get excited about! With a wide variety of cuisines to choose from, you're sure to find something to your taste.

Free Speciality Dining

Norwegian's specialty restaurants are definitely something to get excited about! With a wide variety of cuisines to choose from, you're sure to find something to your taste.

And best of all, if you choose Free Specialty Dining from Free at Sea, you'll get two free dining packages!

Looking to add a little extra excitement to your cruise? Why not try dining in one of the ship's entertainment-based restaurants? For a small additional charge, you can upgrade your dining experience and enjoy a meal in a unique setting. So why not give it a try?

The number of free specialty dining included will depend on the promotion and the length of the cruise.

Free Wifi minutes

Norwegian Cruise Line's Free WiFi perk is great if you need to stay connected and it's completely free! But (you knew there'd be a but, right?) it's not unlimited.

The free WiFi package is limited to 100 minutes per stateroom for 3-6 day cruises and 250 minutes per stateroom for 7-11+ day cruises. That can go fast!

The package will be credited to the first passenger on the reservation, and they'll be able to make one login profile. You can share the login profile with your cruise companions, but it can only be used on one device at a time.

Free Shore Excursion Credits

Norwegian's Free Shore Excursions option could be a great value for you, especially if you're excited to explore all the ports your cruise visits!

This perk will give you a $50 credit towards a Norwegian-sponsored shore excursion in each port. Note that the credit is per stateroom, not per passenger, so make sure to plan accordingly!
