WHAT DO I HAVE TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A TRAVEL DATE?


When deciding on your travel date, you should take into account any circumstances or events that may have an influence on your cruise experience, for example school holidays, spring break, local public holidays, special sports events etc.


WHAT SHALL I PACK?


Freestyle Cruising is not too dressy, not too casual. In fact, you’ll find that there are really only two types of attire you’ll need.


Dress cruise casual anytime during the day, in the buffet and in most speciality restaurants. For women, this includes summer and casual dresses, skirts, regular or capri pants, shorts, jeans and tops. Khakis, jeans, shorts and casual shirts are fine for men. Swimwear is acceptable at the buffet and outdoor restaurant, but a shirt or a cover-up and footwear are required. Cruise casual is also OK day and night on embarkation day.


Wear smart casual if you are eating dinner in the aft Main Dining Room (our more formal Dining Room) and in Le Bistro, on cruises that are more than five days long. For women, this includes slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops. For men, it’s jeans or slacks with a collared shirt and closed-toed shoes.


We want you to be comfortable, but singlets for men, flip flops, baseball caps, visors and jeans that are overly faded, with holes or tears and worn below the hips are not permitted in any of our main dining rooms or speciality restaurants. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in all our restaurants. You may want to pack a sweater too - air conditioning can be chilly.


As all your suitcases are collected the night before we return home, don’t forget an overnight bag for prescriptions and need-to-have items.


HOW MANY SUITCASES CAN I TAKE?


Each guest is allowed two pieces of checked luggage, with a 22 kg maximum each. If travelling by air, remember that airlines do have their own checked baggage and hand luggage restrictions, so please check these. Airlines and Norwegian Cruise Line have limited liability loss, so be sure all baggage and personal belongings are properly insured. Suitcases should be tagged. Medicines in their original containers, jewellery, fragile items, valuables and important documents should be carried in your hand luggage. If you are bringing your wheelchair, check with your airline for any restrictions they may have.


WHAT ARE PASSPORT AND VISA REQUIREMENTS? Please see page 113, clause 16 of our booking conditions.


WILL I NEED TRAVEL INSURANCE? Absolutely, and you can find all the details on page 105.


WHAT ARE NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE’S AGE REQUIREMENTS?


All facts stated below apply at the time of embarkation.


Infants sailing on board a Norwegian Cruise Line vessel must be at least six months of age. However, for voyages that have three or more consecutive days at sea, the infant must be at least 12 months old.


A minor is defined as an individual under 18 years of age at the time of embarkation. A young adult is defined as an individual between the ages of 18 and 20.


Guests under 21 years of age must be accompanied in the same or connecting stateroom by a guest 21 years of age or older. For guests under the age of 18 travelling with an accompanying adult, who is not the minor's parent or legal guardian, a Parent/Guardian Release Form that authorises the minor's travel and further authorises medical treatment in case of an emergency must be given to a Norwegian Cruise Line representative at the pier during check-in. Failure to present this letter at embarkation may result in boarding being denied, with no refund provided. On cruises that include a Canadian port, guests under 18 travelling with a single-parent have to carry along an approval from the parent not travelling. Note: Two people under the age of 21 may travel together in the same stateroom if they are a married couple and provide proof of marriage to a Norwegian Cruise Line representative at the pier before embarkation.


Children under 16 years of age are not allowed to enter the fitness centre. The minimum age for use of the Casino and the Thermal Spa (sauna, steam room, hot tubs) is 18. There is no minimum age requirement to access the rest of the spa or beauty salon. For spa treatments a parent or legal guardian has to be present. Guests under 21 are not allowed in the on-board bars after 11pm, or in the bowling alley located inside the Bliss Ultra Lounge after 9pm.


WHAT IF I HAVE MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS OR AM DISABLED?


We’ll do our best to make special arrangements whenever we can and you can find out more on page 106. If you have a medical or physical condition that may require special attention or treatment, you must advise our Reservations Department at the time of booking. Further information is also available in our Booking Conditions, Clause 14 Page 112.


WHAT IF I’M PREGNANT?


Norwegian Cruise Line will make every effort to accommodate you. However to ensure your medical safety you must complete all travel by the 24th


week of pregnancy. A


medical certificate establishing your due date and fitness to travel is required. Please be aware that we will not be responsible or liable for any complications of pregnancy that occur during the cruise.


WHICH VACCINATIONS MIGHT BE NECESSARY?
