Norwegian Cruise Line is lowering the price of Bottled Water during the cruise and for pre-orders.
NCL has decided to lower the price of bottled water which will please many cruisers. The new prices started to roll out across the fleet on February 10 and will continue to do so until February 27. The cruise line banned guests from bringing bottled water onboard last year which in turn forced people to purchase higher priced water onboard.
For a 6-pack of 1 liter bottled water, the new price is $14.95 lower than the older $22.95 price. 12-packs will now cost $27.95 instead of the higher $39.95 and 24-packs are going to cost $44.95 rather than the more expensive $59.95. The 18-pack package will no longer be available to purchase.
Norwegian Cruise Line revealed the following roll-out schedule:
- Friday 2/17 – Gem, Sky
- Saturday 2/18 – Epic, Star, Pride of America, Escape
- Sunday 2/19 – Dawn, Jewel, Jade, Breakaway, Getaway
- Wednesday 2/22 – Sun
- Thursday 2/23 – Spirit
- Monday 2/27 – Pearl (first cruise after dry dock)
In July 2016 the cruise line banned passengers from bringing onboard beverages which also included water and soda. The ban is to make it easier for security checks and make the process a lot faster. In the past, some guests would try to smuggle alcohol on the ship by making it look like a regular drink. Security had to spend more time scanning any beverages and slowing the embarkation process.
