I hear there are some restaurants that require add'l $$. Is this a cash diner, or can you put it on your room tab?

And are these restaurants worth it?

We've been on 2 Carnival cruises and enjoyed the food in the dining room, especially when we ordered more than 1 entree! (Can we do this here too?) I also really liked our Sail & Sign card on Carnival - I'm not one for carrying cash.

I'm excited to try a new ship and new ports.
Thanks,
Shelley

Shelley, you can put any extra charges, such as the alternate restaurant charge, on your shipboard account. In fact, that is how they work it - very similar to the Carnival "sail & sign" card. I haven't been on NCL in several years, but I did enjoy the Bistro restaurant on the cruise I took with them. You might want to read the reviews for different Norwegian ships on cruisereviews.com before deciding whether the alternate restaurants are worth the extra charge. However, I have found that food in particular seems to be a very subjective thing - one person's fantastic meal is another's disappointment. Have fun, whatever you decide to do!

P.S. Yes, you can order extra entrees on NCL too.
You will only need cash for porter tips (on embarkation and disembarkation days), plus any purchases in port (US dollars are acceptable virtually everywhere in the Caribbean). I believe the casino also accepts cash, but as a non-gambler, am not up to date on that issue - anyone else care to clarify?
