The concept of bidding on a stateroom upgrade is definitively a new one in the field. This program has been beta tested by Norwegian and received very positive reviews.
The Norwegian Advantage Program is scheduled to launch on February 8, 2017. The program will roll out on the Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Epic and Pride of America before expanding to the cruise line’s entire fleet.
How it works:
- Once final payment has been submitted, guests will then be given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade.
- A dial with the colors of red, yellow, and green will appear to show the guest the likelihood of their bid being accepted.
- Once the bid is accepted, both the guest and travel agent will receive a confirmation email.
