NCL to raise fares in April - Travel Weekly


NCL to raise fares in April

By Donna Tunney
Norwegian Cruise Line said it would raise its fares by up to 10%, effective April 1.


At the same time it extended its "Free Upgrades For All" promotion through March 31, offering up to a four-category upgrade on select sailings, along with e-coupons for onboard savings of up to $400.


"We've seen exceptional demand spurred by our Wave season promotion, particularly for the popular summer destinations," said CEO Kevin Sheehan.
"Based on this demand, we will increase our fares on April 1. We wanted to give consumers and travel agents the opportunity to take advantage of these offers before the price increase."


NCL last raised its fares in April 2010, by 7%, citing an unprecedented increase in booking volume.
