Important Information Regarding Beverage Policy
July 01, 2016
Valued Travel Partner,
Please be aware of a recent policy going into effect July 15th, which is being communicated today via email to all currently booked guests. We ask for your support in communicating this messaging to your clients who may be sailing with Norwegian in the coming weeks and moving forward.
At Norwegian Cruise Line, the safety and security of our guests and crew is our top priority. To ensure a safe and enjoyable onboard environment for all, guests are prohibited from bringing any beverages -- including liquor, beer and non-alcoholic drinks such as water, soda and juices -- on board the company's ships either as carry-on or checked luggage, with the exception of purified or distilled water in factory-sealed containers for use in conjunction with medical devices or for the reconstitution of infant formula; and fully sealed and/or corked wine bottles for personal consumption onboard that is subject to screening and a corkage fee (for guests 21 years of age or older). Open beverages of any kind must be consumed or discarded at the security check-point, on embarkation day and at any port of call.
To provide our guests with a smoother and faster embarkation experience, we will be implementing this updated policy effective July 15. This revised policy brings the company in line with other best practice travel security protocols and reduces the need for individual time consuming screening and package inspection of large volumes of beverages.
We thank our guests for their understanding, cooperation and compliance with this change. More information on our beverage policy is available at https://www.ncl.com/faq#what-to-bring
We appreciate your business and Thank You for your assistance in communication to your Norwegian Clients.
