Prices on the Rise for Norwegian

The way we see it, which is not always through rose-colored glasses but is always through either bifocals or progressives, Norwegian is increasing fares by 10 per cent on the first of April for one of four reasons:

1. In this era of rocketing oil prices, it’s a way of covering NCL’s inevitable increased expenses without invoking the most despised and suspicious words in cruise-ship pricing — “fuel surcharge.”

2. The Wave Season promotion, which gives NCL customers up to four-category upgrades, is selling so well that Norwegian sees this as the perfect time to increase fares, since there is no perfect time.

3. The deadline creates an urgency to buy before the price goes up.

4. Well, it is April 1.
