Prepare For Your Cruise
Excited about your upcoming adventure on Norwegian? We thought so. But before departure day, there are some important items you'll need take care of first-see below. Plus check out all the things you can pre-book as well as other good-to-know info.
MUST-DO'S BEFORE YOU CRUISE
First things first, make sure you have your travel docs in order, including government issued photo ID, passports, visas and other mandatory documents required to travel. We strongly recommend that you bring a valid passport if your itinerary visits a non-U.S. port. A passport is required for all international travel.
Have special needs or dietary restrictions? All of our ships have designated staterooms to accommodate wheelchairs and guests with hearing impairments. We can accommodate special food requests (Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Kosher) if we're notified in time. Let our Access Desk know you're coming at least 8 weeks prior to cruising to ensure the best experience possible.
Last but not least, Log In to My NCL to complete online check-in, download eDocs, reserve Shore Excursions, Dining, Entertainment* & Spa* in advance. If you booked your cruise reservation with a Travel Agent or an online travel website, create an account on NCL.com and answer the questions under "Create a New Account". You will be prompted to provide your reservation number so it can be added to your account for you.
Book Things to Do: On Land and On Board
Maximise every day and night of your cruise. Before you set foot on board, you can line up all your shore excursions, speciality dining reservations, entertainment, spa appointments and more. Having everything pre-arranged means less time coordinating and more time enjoying. After all, you're on holiday.
Entertainment & Spa Treatments*
Plan a morning of pampering at the Mandara Spa, then a special evening with dinner and a late show at the main theatre. Pre-booking Entertainment is available on Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Getaway 90 days prior to sailing; and Spa on Norwegian Epic 90 days prior.
Gifts & More
Make celebrating a special occasion even more meaningful with a thoughtful gift. You can pre-order a wide range of gifts up to three weeks before sailing. Choose from onboard credits, spa certificates, romance packages, wine, flowers and more.
Bringing the Kids?
With cool custom spaces, slides and games, your kids may never want to get off the ship. Kids of all ages will find fun and age-appropriate activities at every turn. That's because good times are all around, whether the kids are looking to meet new friends or the whole family is looking to spend some time together.
Group Sitting Services
Norwegian's specialised staff offers group-sitting services on port days and every night. That way, parents can see a show, indulge at the spa, hit the casino or enjoy a romantic evening out. Because when the whole family is taken care of, everyone's happy.
