Check-In

Before You Sail

Before You Sail

Complete online check in 48 hours prior to sailing using the reservation number we emailed you. Not sure what your reservation number is? Contact us and we can help.

Once everyone in your cabin has completed online check-in with Norwegian, you can print out your eDocs. If everyone in your party is arriving at the terminal together, you only need to print one copy. 

This option is available on Norwegian's website up to 72 hours prior to sailing. 

Every guest needs to have proper documentation to board the ship.

Tips for the Terminal

Passport/Edocs

Passport/Edocs

To check in at the Port of Barcelona and board the ship, you must have proper documentation.  Do not place it in your checked bag, keep it on you to take into the cruise terminal to present at the check in counter. You will not be allowed to board the ship without proper documentation.

If you were unable to print your E-docs prior to embarkation day (August 16), then please proceed to the port with proper documentation.

Check your bags

Check your bags

Lighten your load! Check your bags with a porter before you enter the cruise terminal for easy boarding.

Bags will be delivered to your room by 8:00pm so be sure to keep anything you might need in your carry on bag (passport, medicine, etc.).

 *Please note that curbside porters are not employees of Norwegian and it’s customary to tip them $1 per bag

Security

Security

You can keep your shoes on but belts and laptops will need to go into a bin for screening. Also, wine and champagne needs to be taken out. Just like at the airport, throw away open drink containers, and empty your pockets.

 

Bringing Wine?

Bringing Wine?

If you brought wine or champagne, stop at the table immediately after security to pay the corkage fee of $15.00 each for a 750 ml Bottle or $30.00 each for a 1,500 ml Magnum. Yes, you still have to pay the corkage fee if it's a twist off bottle of wine.

Onboard Spending

Onboard Spending

All purchases on the ship are made with your Norwegian keycard in USD currency. As you complete check in at the Port of Barcelona, you will be asked to put down a method of payment for all your onboard purchases. All purchases you make on the ship will be tied to this method of payment.

If you're setting up a cash account, you will do that on the ship but for credit cards, you will set that up in the cruise terminal. Only US Dollars will be accepted in the terminal and on board, so we advise you visit a Currency Exchange Kiosk prior to arriving at the terminal. 

Read up on all the details here.

I'm on board, now what?

High Five

High Five

Nothing says your vacation has officially started like a high five from our Sixthman team! It's one of our favorite traditions and our way to welcome you on board. (Don't worry about spreading germs because you'll get a quick spray of hand sanitizer as you step on board too. Washy washy, happy happy!) 

 

Cabins

Cabins

The ship's crew will make an announcement over the loudspeaker when all cabins are ready and that happens around 2:00pm.

Remember, should you choose to check your bags outside the cruise terminal, know that they may be delivered as late as 8:00pm, so keep items you’ll need until then in a carry-on.

No problem! Visit Norwegian Guest Services in the Atrium (Deck 7, MID). They're open 24 hours and can replace your keycard.

Pro-tip: Norwegian's guest services team can also let you know your onboard spending balance at any time.

Use decks 7 and 12—you can walk all the way from the front to the back of the ship on these decks. Then take the FWD (front), MID, or AFT (back) elevators or stairs up or down.

Tradewinds boutiques are located on Deck 7, FWD. They're stocked with lots of the amenities you just can't live without.

Ring your stateroom steward at "00", and he or she will ensure your beds are arranged to your preference before evening turn down.
