Norwegian Cruise Line introduced a new valuable new promotion called “The Ultimate Freesome” that offers free specialty dining and drinks packages valued at up to $1,000, company executives told travel agents in a webcast on Feb. 24. The offer is good on bookings made Feb. 27-March 10 for Norwegian Getaway departures from April 19 through Sept. 27 and Norwegian Breakaway sailings from April 20 to Sept. 28, 2014.
Those who book a balcony stateroom or higher category on Norwegian Getaway or Breakaway get a free “Ultimate Dining Package,” which waives the cover charge in specialty restaurants for each night of the cruise and usually costs $119 for a seven-day voyage. The “Ultimate Dining Package” does not include a la carte restaurants, Geoffrey Zakarian’s Ocean Blue and entertainment-based dining, but those are discounted by 20 percent with the package.
Those who book a suite or higher get the “Ultimate Dining Package” and the “Ultimate Beverage Package,” which usually costs $49 per day. It includes spirits and cocktails valued up to $8.50, draft beer up to $5.95, bottled beers up to $5.50, glasses of wine under $10 and unlimited fountain soda and juices at all bars, lounges and restaurants on the ship and at Great Stirrup Cay.
The “Ultimate Freesome” can be combined with Norwegian’s current Wave Season offer as well as AARP, military and Latitudes Rewards discounts. Norwegian has created marketing materials for travel agents to use to promote the latest offer. They are available at the line’s travel agent portal.
Norwegian’s Wave Season offer, good through April 14, is a reduced deposit, up to six category upgrades and e-coupons worth over $300 for all cruises departing before Dec. 31, 2015. Program codes are 14WAVE and UPGRADE.
