Hour’s free Wi-Fi added to NCL’s new product

Norwegian Cruise Line enhances its Premium All Inclusive deals with 60 minutes’ Wi-Fi per person.

Norwegian Cruise Line is enhancing its premium all-inclusive product to include 60 minutes free Wi-Fi.

With immediate effect, every new booking will receive a 60-minute data package per person as part of the fare option, which was initially launched by NCL in late 2015.

“Many shipping companies only offer suite guests a free internet package,” explains Christian Böll, Norwegian Cruise Line’s managing director for Europe.

“However, we are taking our Premium All Inclusive concept a step further and now offer all our customers free Wi-Fi access. That way, they can keep in touch and share their holiday impressions with friends and family any time.”

The hour of free internet is in addition to the wide selection of spirits, cask and bottled beers, wines by the glass, cocktails costing up to $15 each and soft drinks in all of the bars, lounges and restaurants, plus speciality coffees in the restaurants.

Crew tips for inclusive services are also covered, as is a bottle of water per person per day provided in the staterooms.

Premium All Inclusive was first introduced in December 2015 in the German-speaking market. The concept was then implemented rolled out to all other European markets in April 2017.

Encore not for China
In related news, NCL has also revealed the name of its next ship. It will be called Norwegian Encore and will sail weekly Caribbean cruises from Miami starting in November 2019.

The start of construction was marked with a steel cutting ceremony this week at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. But no mention was made of a previous announcement that the ship would be designed for the Chinese market, Cruise Industry News reports.

Encore will be the 17th ship in the Norwegian fleet and the line’s fourth and final ship in the Breakaway Plus Class, described as the most successful class in the brand’s history.
