NO, we pay for too many things now with NCL that should be included with the cruise fare. Why should we pay to eat at a noodle bar, when the ingredients cast less than a dollar? There are many other things we are charged for that really are pushing the envelope. Soon nothing will be included in our fare, much like with the airlines.
So, it really is Harrah's at sea; like paying the $10.00 fee for "Express Entry" to the Paris Buffet!! Now, I see where NCL/Harrah's Apollo Management is going with this. Truly the Vegas Strip at sea.
