Norwegian's All-Inclusive Cost Confusing

Norwegian’s often first with innovations and this month brings another one: A new twist on an all-inclusive cruise package.

It’s available on all Norwegian ships but Pride of America in 2015, but bookings must be made by August 29. Also excluded are European and United Kingdom cruises.

The cruise line is quick to point out that its all-inclusive package delivers more than $2,400 in value, per stateroom. Everything from signature dining every night, alcoholic NCL inclusivebeverages, unlimited soda, Internet access (250 minutes), shore excursion credits, gratuities…

It applies on cruises of three to 14 days.

The cost is $899.

What the cruise line didn’t make clear in the announcement was whether that’s $899 per stateroom or $899 per person. There was no mention of “per person” and the benefits of $2,400 were “per stateroom.” Logical that the cost would also be “per stateroom.”

Not so fast.

A little digging on Norwegian’s website produced the only line that gives it all away: “save up to $600.” So do the math — $2,400 in benefits per stateroom minus $1,800 per stateroom in charges…

Once again, if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
