Cruise News - Norwegian Cruise Line - Christmas Cruises


Norwegian Cruise Line offers guests the opportunity to enjoy incredible cruise savings on select sailings during a special 12 Days of Christmas limited time promotion. Beginning today, guests can visit daily to view the deals. Each day brings a new offer and consists of a minimum of five terrific destinations, on select ships and sail dates, plus one extremely hot offer that has limited quantity and is available on a first-come, first serve basis. There is no better gift than the gift of cruising, and through December 12, 2011, vacationers can take advantage of these exceptional savings to popular destinations around the world such as Bahamas & Florida; Bermuda; the Caribbean; Europe; and Hawai’i.

Guests sailing on board a Norwegian ship over the holidays can relax and unwind while enjoying the festive atmosphere*. During the holidays, each Norwegian ship will spread the holiday spirit with festive decorations, themed menu items and special activities.

For those setting sail during Hanukkah and Christmas, the ships will be decorated with holiday decorations such as a menorah which will be lit each evening, poinsettias and twinkling lights. A rabbi will be on board and a priest or minister will be available to lead services on Christmas Eve. Delectable menu items may include honey-glazed Black Forest ham with sweet potato mash, pumpkin souffle and a pear and chestnut torte. Those wishing to spread the magic of the season can send a loved one a winter floral arrangement, available for purchase through Norwegian’s Bon Voyage gifts, by requesting the “Holiday Cheer” bouquet at least one week prior to the sailing.

Guests can ring in the New Year with offerings such as Blue Point oysters in the main dining restaurants. As the clock prepares to strike midnight the captain will countdown to 2012 live from the bridge. Celebrations will include hats, noisemakers, streamers and guests can toast to a new year with a glass of champagne or featured specialty cocktail.

Give the best holiday gift with a cruise on Norwegian Epic, Norwegian's largest and most innovative Freestyle Cruising ship. Norwegian Epic, which has been recognized by USA Today as “Best Cruise Ship Entertainment,” departs from Miami weekly through April 7, 2012 and sails to the Eastern Caribbean visiting St. Thomas and St. Maarten, Virgin Islands and Nassau Bahamas, as well as three relaxing days at sea.
