Norwegian Cruise Line has introduced its latest innovative cruise concept for the Irish market, changing the face of holidays at sea by bringing the all-inclusive holiday trend to the premium global cruise sector.

Norwegian Cruise Line will launch Premium All-Inclusive in Ireland from 6th April 2017, offering guests unparalleled flexibility at sea and setting a new trend for contemporary large ship ocean cruising. By bringing even more elements into the upfront fares, guests can now benefit from even more peace of mind while cruising with Norwegian.

Premium All-Inclusive includes:

Varied selection of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in all bars, lounges and dining venues at any time throughout the cruise. From spirits, tap and bottled beers, to wines, cocktails, soft drinks and juices

  • Unlimited juices, water and soft drinks for children and teenagers
  • Lavazza coffee specialities during meals
  • One free bottle of water per person, per day in staterooms
  • Services charges and gratuities
  • Culinary excellence in the main dining venues on board – including buffets with live cooking, on-deck grills, informal eateries and up to three signature main dining rooms per ship
  • Award-winning entertainment, including Broadway hits, production shows, music and comedy
  • Outstanding leisure facilities for all ages
  • Additional exclusive benefits and privileges for guests staying in Suites and in The Haven by Norwegian

On the launch of Premium All-Inclusive in Ireland, Christian Boell, Managing Director Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Norwegian has long been an innovator in cruise and the introduction of Premium All-Inclusive takes our carefree, relaxed cruising style to a whole new level. A considerable number of what were once considered ‘extras’ are now taken care of including a large choice of premium drinks as well as service charges and gratuities. These newly included extras come on top of the many services that have always made a Norwegian cruise special, including the most exciting dining and entertainment scene at sea. Having already successfully launched in several European markets, I am confident that our Irish guests are going to love Premium All-Inclusive too.”

Nick Wilkinson, Senior Director and General Manager Northern Europe & MEA, Norwegian Cruise Line, added: “The launch of our product as Premium All-Inclusive is a game-changer for the large ship ocean cruise market and it offers a wealth of opportunity for our valued travel partners. We have armed them with a powerful sales tool, helping to convert customers who may not yet have considered cruise as a holiday option, while also introducing new-to-brand cruisers to the Norwegian product. We know that our travel partners have seen an increase in enquiries for all-inclusive holidays, and our new pricing will continue to keep a cruise holiday with Norwegian in the equation.”
