drink package wine options

Recommended Posts

My wife and I both prefer a white moscato wine. I did a bit of looking on some lists I found online and didnt see that as an option for the drink package; only by the bottle.  Does anyone know if Moscato is available by the glass?  We like sweet red wines too.  any good options?  Thanking you in advance.

I just got off the Getaway last week and I think there is a Moscato on the white wine list.  There is also a Riesling which is semi-sweet that you might enjoy.  I stick to Pinot Noir, Malbec or Cabernet on the red side, but I think there is a red blend by Norwegian, but I am not sure if sweet or on the drier side.  Just make sure you tell them X wine in the package as we got upcharged and had to fight to have it taken off the whole cruise.  Finally they took it off the day of debarkation.

On the Breakaway earlier this year there were two Moscato's available by the glass priced under the package limit and one that was subject to an upcharge.

Following as we will be on the Getaway late January. Hopeful the NCL labeled wines are still at the $15/glass mark. Their red blend has been my go to wine but not if it is above the UBP limit.  Thanks all.

Yes, we ordered a Malbec and had the package and they gave us the more expensive one so sometimes if there is more than one wine of the same type you have to specify "within package limits" or "on the package please" to not get the upcharged one.  They didn't even give us a slip to sign so we had no idea until checking our balance a day later.  My advice is to keep an eye on your onboard account on the App or TV. For the Getaway out of NOLA, they will charge tax until International waters so expect that as well, but all in all we enjoyed the drink package, the cruise, not so much.  But this was due to the ship being overbooked and overrun with children at Thanksgiving.  It was our first Holiday cruise.  It will also be our last Holiday cruise...lol.
