Citing 'overwhelming demand,' Norwegian Cruise Line has implemented à la carte pricing at the Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville aboard Norwegian Escape. Items range from $2.99 to $8.99.

The casual, alfresco venue has proven to be extremely popular. During inaugural sailings the waits were sometimes up to two hours for what debuted as one of the ship's complimentary dining venues.

Now, snacks like chips, queso and salsa are priced at $2.99, conch fritters are $3.99, fish tacos $6.99 and the Key West fish sandwich is $8.99.

And Margaritaville's famous Cheeseburger in Paradise is $6.99.
