Norwegian Cruise Line: Free at Sea and immersive itineraries

Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian Aqua

With savings of 50 per cent on all sailings this Black Friday, there is plenty on offer with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) as the company prepares to welcome the first ship in its new Prima Plus Class.

Guests can make the most of NCL’s Free at Sea offer and from £74.50 (50 per cent off based on a six-to eight-day cruise) they will receive all applicable packages including premium beverages, speciality dining, wifi, excursion discounts and third and fourth guests pay taxes only (on select sailings).

Premium beverages include a wide selection of soft drinks, spirits, cocktails, wines by the glass and bottled or draft beer served in all bars, lounges and restaurants throughout the cruise. If customers were to buy the FAS upgrade, this beverage package is $109pp per day.

With a range of speciality restaurants to choose from, the package includes meals in Teppanyaki, Le Bistro, Cagney’s Steakhouse and more.

Guests can stay connected while at sea with a wifi package that would usually cost $44 per day as part of the FAS upgrade, and get the most of time ashore with $50 shore excursion discount per stateroom, per tour. On a seven-night sailing this can be worth $300.

Norwegian Cruise Line offering cruises to suit all tastes

With nine ships in Europe next year, there are plenty of itineraries to choose from, with holidays to suit all tastes.

Wake up to a new destination nearly every day in the Mediterranean, hop from island to island in Greece or make Northern Europe your go-to, with convenient sailings to Iceland, the Norwegian fjords and Baltics.

Or customers can go that extra mile and visit multiple continents with the line, immersing themselves in Africa, from vibrant and modern Cape Town to the natural beauty of Madagascar and Mauritius.

Cruise past iconic landmarks in Sydney, taking in the best of Australia and New Zealand and get a new perspective in South America, from sailing the Panama Canal to visiting the southernmost city of Ushuaia.

To make the most of these unmissable experiences, guests can benefit from savings of 50 per cent during NCL’s Black Friday Sale.

Receive all packages from £74.50 and up to £250pp airfare credit for select sailings throughout 2024. NCL said guests are now booking earlier and advised customers to book sooner rather than later.

Furthermore, customers can book bucket-list destinations with up to £400pp airfare credit on select sailings to Africa, Australia, Panama Canal and South America.

Norwegian Cruise Line new ship and itineraries

With more outdoor space than any other cruise ship, Norwegian Aqua will enable customers to enjoy more sunshine and ocean views than ever before when it launches in 2025.

Discover itineraries where they can soak in seaside mountain vistas in the Dominican Republic, build blushing pink sandcastles in Bermuda, shop around the town of St. Thomas within the US Virgin Islands, and much more.

Elsewhere, guests can experience NCL’s own private island Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas or Harvest Caye in Southern Belize.

Guests can also sample what NCL says will be the world’s first hybrid rollercoaster and waterslide at sea, the Aqua Slidecoaster, before free-falling on the line’s 10-storey dry slide. They can also enjoy the Glow Court and the infinity pools at Vibe Beach Club.
