Hello everyone,

Okay this is probably going to seem like a silly question but when you say there is a cover charge on the specialty resterants do you mean you pay a cover charge and then you also pay for what you order on the menu. I didn't know if you paid a coverage charge and then that is all you have to pay unless you order alcohol. I'm saling on the Norwegian Sun in that makes any difference. I have never cruised before so I wasn't sure.

Hi Cat. You will basically pay for admission the restaurant....after that, you order what you want, no extra charge for the food. When are you sailing again?

No, I leave on April 1, thus I am very curious as to how you will like it. I think I have the ship layout, and itineraries memorized though. You will become the "expert" when you return, so let me know the do's and dont's when you get back!!

There may be some restaurants that are a la carte, or have an additional additional charge for certain entrees -- but for the most part, you've got it right.

Enjoy your cruise!
Happy cruising!

Just off the Pearl.....there is cover charges in Teppanyaki $20.00 per person, Lotus Garden or Chin/Chin $10.00 per person, Le Bistro $20.00 per person, Cagney's Steakhouse $20.00 per person. If you dine very early 5:00 to 6:00 PM the cover charges are 1/2 price.

In Teppanyaki, there is an additional charge if you go the extra items on the menu. The regular menu will give you plenty of choices for the basic cover charge of $20.00 per person. You will need a reservation as seating is limited with 4 grilling areas, and 8 people at each grilling table. Seating times are 5:30PM, 7:30PM and 9:30 PM.

In Le Bistro, cover charge is $20.00 per person, considered French Cuisine, its the best on NCL. There is a special menu on the right side which is an additional charge of $10.00 person, for lamb, or chauteubriand for 2 and one other dish. Dining between 5-6:00 PM gets you a 1/2 price cover charge. Be sure to consider the choclate fondue, with fresh hot chocolate, served in a fondue pot, and a fresh 1/2 cut pineapple filled with fresh fruit for dipping into the chocolate. This is not on the menu, but the waiter will offer it to you.

Cagney's the Steakhouse is a cover charge of $20.00 per person, and if you want the 1 1/2 pound whole lobster, it will cost an additonal $10.00 per person. Also $10.00 extra for steak and Lobster combination ( Surf & Turf)/ I suggest the 8 oz filet mingon.

Lotus Garden on some ships and Chin Chin on others is Asian cuisine with a cover charge of $10.00 person. It is Asian menu, but not a good deal at $10.00 extra person. Suggest if you want Asian food try the buffet where there is usually a choice each night.

The Sushi bar is $15.00 for all you can eat Sushi.Limited seating for about 10 people at one time at the sushi bar.

Hopefully this helps in making some decisions on dining with NCL.

Enjoy, and have a great cruise.

Richard & Mary

I thought Lisa P had made a mistake when she said "additional additional charge" . . .now I see she didn't (I should have known better!)
So you pay a $10.00 to $20.00 cover and then another $10.00 for certain items; now granted, $30.00 is not bad at all for a steak and lobster dinner; but considering I already paid for all my meals in the cruise fare AND I can get steak and lobster in the main dining room (although not every night--at least not lobster) I just don't see the point.
