Service fees to jump at Norwegian Cruise Line

Daily service charge NCL adds to bills jumps by almost 8%
People who have booked on a Norwegian Cruise Line voyage will have to be ready to spend even more money, as the ships will soon implement higher daily fees.
From March 1, the line is increasing the daily service charge it adds to bills by almost 8%, to $12.95 a day per person for most passengers. Those in suites will pay $14.95 per person per day.
That means a family of four will have to pay in excess of $350 in service charges on a seven-night cruise – one of the highest fees in the travel industry.
By comparison, Cunard Princess and Holland America add $11.50 per person per day, Carnival and Royal Caribbean $12. Upscale lines such as Azamara, Crystal, Seabourn, Regent and SeaDream have cut out additional service charges entirely.
