Onboard The Ship
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”Is There A Dress Code Onboard?”] There is not a dress code onboard Motorhead’s Motorboat, and there is no “formal night” so formal attire is not required. Additionally, we respectuflly request that guests refrain from nudity in public spaces throughout the ship.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”How Do I Pay For Things On The Ship?”] For your convenience, all shipboard expenses are charged to Norwegian’s special onboard credit program. Sign up on the first day of your cruise, by establishing your method of payment with a credit card (Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, Diners Club®), travelers checks or cash. If you choose to settle your account with cash, a deposit will be required in advance. Norwegian does not recommend the use of a debit card as payment for your onboard folio. However, if you choose to pay with a debit card, please be advised that Norwegian obtains pre-authorization which some banks may hold for up to 30 days.
Using your debit or ATM card
Norwegian does not recommend the use of a debit card as payment for your onboard folio.
Please be advised that multiple holds will be placed on your debit card account based on your onboard purchases.
After settling your onboard folio, these debit card holds may remain on your account up to 30 days after the cruise ends.
To avoid overdraft charges from your bank, please make sure that you have enough available funds in your account during this hold period.
Norwegian will not be responsible for overdraft charges resulting from holds placed on Debit Card accounts.
Cash/Traveler’s Checks Procedures
You can deposit cash or US Traveler’s Checks into your onboard account. To start, US-$100 per person per day is required, although more can be deposited depending on what you plan to spend. If you don’t have enough money down to cover expenses, your account(s) will be closed and you cannot purchase anything until more money is deposited. You can deposit as much money as often as you’d like throughout the cruise, however, refunds cannot be made until the day of disembarkation for any excess. US Traveler’s Checks can be cashed onboard and are the same as cash.
**Personal checks will not be accepted, nor can they be cashed onboard.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”Will I Need To Tip For Anything During The Cruise?”] Gratuities of $13.05 per person, per day will be charged to your onboard spending account
Guests should not feel obliged to offer a gratuity for good service. However, all of our staff are encouraged to “go the extra mile,” and so they are permitted to accept cash gratuities entirely at the discretion of our guests who wish to acknowledge particular staff members for exceptional or outstanding service. In other words, there is genuinely no need to tip but you should feel free to do so if you have a desire to acknowledge particular individuals.
Also, certain staff positions provide service on an individual basis to only some guests. We encourage those guests to acknowledge good service from these staff members with appropriate gratuities. For example, for guests purchasing bar drinks the recommended gratuity is 15 percent. For guests purchasing spa treatments the recommended gratuity is 18 percent. Similarly, for guests using concierge and butler services, we recommend they consider offering a gratuity commensurate with services rendered.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”What Are The Dining Options?”] Norwegian offers open-seating dining in a variety of restaurants and cafés with individual menus. There are complimentary dining options, from three-course dining to endless buffets with action stations and room service.

[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”Can Special Diets Be Accommodated?”] If you have any food allergy or a dietary requirement that requires Kosher meals or gluten-free food product, please advise a Motorhead’s Motorboat Reservations Agent at the time of booking. Obtaining the product for many of these requests requires 30-days notice prior to sailing, and we want to ensure that we are able to fulfill your request. We cannot guarantee Kosher Meal requests made within 30 days of sail date.
For the protection of all of our guests, it is not permissible to bring aboard any food items that would require preparation by the ship’s staff, or food items that would require cold storage in our kitchen facilities.

The current onboard the Norwegian Sky is 110 volts AC (US Power). However, some high-voltage hair dryers, electric rollers and electric razors may require a converter.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”Are There Hairdryers And Irons Provided In The Cabins?”] Yes. There are hairdryers in the rooms, and you will need to use the ones provided, as the wattage on most personal hair dryers is too high for the ship and it will cause the electric to go out in your room and the staff will have to reset the electricity in your room.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”Is Laundry Service Available?”] Yes. Laundry & dry-cleaning services are available for an additional charge.
[/spoiler] [spoiler open=”0″ style=”2″ title=”How Old Do I Have To Be To Drink Alcohol On The Cruise?”] Passengers must be 21 years of age or older to purchase or consume alcohol.
Norwegian permits young adults to purchase and personally consume wine and beer only while onboard and with the consent of an accompanying parent. Authorization will be given only when the accompanying parent completes the Young Adult Alcoholic Beverage Waiver form. This form can be obtained and completed at the Guest Services Desk upon embarkation of the vessel.
Motorhead’s Motorboat and Norwegian Cruise Lines encourage the responsible use of alcohol and accordingly reserves the right to permanently or temporarily revoke the drinking privileges of any guest who violates Motorhead’s Motorboat’s Zero Tolerance Police and Norwegian’s Guest Code of Conduct or who is deemed a danger to himself, herself or others by vessel management. Continued abuse of alcohol while sailing and/or violation of Norwegian’s alcohol policy may result in immediate disembarkation.
Please refer to our Zero Tolerance Policy

Also, you may smoke cigarettes, pipes and cigars outside on open decks, but not in proximity to food venues, sports decks, kids’ pool areas and other designated non-smoking areas.
