The new program will focus on 2003 Bermuda itineraries. Norwegian Sea, which will sail from New York and Philadelphia, and Norwegian Majesty, which homeports in Boston, will offer passengers a choice of restaurants -- the cruise line says there will be 30 - 50 participating eateries -- that go beyond onboard fare. Passengers who want to eat lunch or dinner on shore can buy a voucher from NCL; lunch vouchers are for the equivalent of $25 and dinner vouchers are $50. They then pay NCL a fee for using each voucher; $5 for lunch, $10 for dinner.
At this point, NCL will not (or can not) release the names of participating restaurants.
