750 ml Bottle: $15.00 USD

1,000 ml Bottle: $20.00 USD

1,500 ml Magnum: $30.00 USD

Smoking is only permitted on the Port side of the Pool Deck (Decks 12 and 13), in the casino (limited to those engaged in active game play during gaming hours), and on the Port Side of Deck 7.

Smoking inside your stateroom or on your balcony will result in a $250 USD cleaning charge added to your onboard account.

Packing

Passport/Edocs

Passport/Edocs

To check in at the Port of Miami and board the ship, you must have proper documentation. Do not place it in your checked bag. Take it with you into the cruise terminal as you'll need to present it at the check in counter. You will not be allowed to board the ship without proper documentation.

If you printed out your eDocs, have them handy when you arrive at the port. It will help speed up the check in process!

If you were unable to print your eDocs prior to embarkation day (January 24th), please proceed to the port with proper documentation. You will still be able to board the ship even if you don't have your eDocs. 

Check your bags

Check your bags

Lighten your load! Check your bags with a porter before you enter the cruise terminal for easy boarding.

Bags will be delivered to your room by 8:00pm ET so be sure to keep anything you might need in your carry on bag (passport, medicine, etc.).

 *Please note that curbside porters are not employees of Norwegian and it’s customary to tip them $1 per bag

Security

Security

You can keep your shoes on but belts and laptops will need to go into a bin for screening. Also, wine and champagne need be taken out. Just like at the airport, throw away open drink containers, and empty your pockets.

For your theme night attire, please keep in mind that anything that may look like a weapon may be seized by security agents so it's better to leave those items safely at home.

Bringing Wine?

Bringing Wine?

If you brought wine or champagne, stop at the table immediately after security to pay the corkage fee of $15.00 each for a 750 ml Bottle or $30.00 each for a 1,500 ml Magnum. Yes, you still have to pay the corkage fee if it's a twist off bottle of wine.

Onboard Spending

Onboard Spending

All purchases on the ship are made with your Norwegian keycard. As you complete check in at the Port of Miami, you will be asked to put down a method of payment for all your onboard purchases. All purchases you make on the ship will be tied to this method of payment. If you're setting up a cash account, you will do that on the ship but for credit cards, you will set that up in the cruise terminal.
