Default Drinks Packages on Norwegian Spirit?

We have booked a NCL Norwegian Spirit cruise to Canary Islands in January. We had pre-purchased a 7 bottle wine package on a previous Royal Caribbean cruise and are wondering do NCL do similar packages? Thanks!

Yes they do. I have never done this, so sorry if the details are not entirely correct, but I think it's a package of six bottles for a discount. The bottles are stored centrally so they are available for you whichever restaurant you decide to eat in.

I was looking for a wine package and I can't seem to find it.

Can someone give me a link to the details?

i dont think you can prebook wine packages
when you board there is usually a table set up in the foyer with details of the packages.You pick the ones you want and a staff member writes out a slip of paper for each bottle.When you want one bringing and opening you hand the slip to a waiter or barman

Thanks for the info! I am presuming that if you purchase at the start of boarding there would be a discount?

yes the discount is listed as 20%

however the bar service charge is then added to that and check that if you purchase before out to sea that you dont get charged VAT at the port of embarkation

I purchased wine package on the first sea day

The form given above is to give the wine as a gift and you pay a premium for that. After you board, you select 6 or more bottles and are given a discount for the group. You can then drink them anywhere on the ship including your stateroom. If you order while still at the pier you will pay sales tax, after you sail you save the tax. The wine list published is correct and subject to change.

Is 6 bottles the smallest package? I will be on a 7 day cruise and my daughter doesn't drink alcohol. I know I can't drink 1 bottle a day. On my other cruises I found 4 bottles was perfect as I drink half of a bottle each night.
