Relaxation. It’s one of the key words that travelers use when they describe an ocean cruise. Norwegian Cruise Line’s spa experience really focus on providing guests a relaxing experience and the Norwegian Breakaway offers a gorgeous, relaxing Mandara Spa experience that’s fantastic for body and soul. The Breakway’s spa is a step forward for cruise vacations, with an enormous two deck footprint aboard ship, and offering some firsts to spas at sea, guaranteed to provide benefits to both body and soul.
Sales happen in the travel industry on a daily basis. So many, so often that even we can’t keep track of all of them. However, this week there are two really great sales from our travel partners that we want to shed some light on, offering great value for travelers this week only. Be it a beach and pool vacation, or a cruise to just about anywhere, there’s a special deal available this week.
Norwegian Dashes To Savings
Our friends at Norwegian Cruise Line have a great deal starting tomorrow through Thursday May 24. Book a three night or longer sailing on any future Norwegian Cruise Line adventure and you’ll pay a reduced deposit and take advantage of some great onboard credit deals, as much as $250 per stateroom. Crown Cruise Vacations is offering lots of extras as well. Choose your own amenities, be it shipboard credit, specialty dining reservations or romance packages. This sale includes all ships, including the brand new Norwegian Breakaway, and her sister, the Norwegian Getaway, due to sail from Miami starting this winter. The Norwegian Breakaway is an amazing ship sailing from New York, and you can view some highlights from her christening earlier this month above.
That’s some nice extra cash to spend in the spa or eating at one of the many premium dining experiences that these ships have to offer, including Geoffrey Zarkarian’s Raw Bar aboard Breakaway. The deals are for three days only, Tuesday May 21 to Thursday May 24 – so if a cruise is in the works, the best time to make plans is now!

Norwegian Cruise Line has been a pioneer in the cruise industry for decades and it has consistently led the trend of open seating for dinner, something which nearly every cruise line has since emulated to one degree or another. The Breakaway, however, takes this a step further with 26 different dining options on board ship, including 15 different premium dining experiences, including two restaurants by Iron Chef star, and New York restauranteur Geoffrey Zarkarian.
The Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest flagship, set sail for the first time from New York City last week, and the ship is truly an evolution in cruising from the Northeast. Truth be told, its not too often that the newest and best ships in the fleet sail from New York, but the Norwegian Breakaway’s Big Apple debut is the continuation of a trend that Celebrity started with the Silhouette and Royal Caribbean is happy to continue with its upcoming Quantum of the Seas. During our short voyage out in the Atlantic Ocean, we had a chance to explore the ship from top to bottom – and one of the most comfortable spots on the ship is the studio complex.
Summer may be coming, but this morning we’ve got the holidays on the brain. Christmas is always a magical time of year, and its a holiday that truly comes alive in Europe, especially at the Christmas Markets in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. And there are lots of great ways that travelers can catch the Christmas spirit all across the continent this December.
Summer’s quickly approaching and that’s the season to see Alaska. So many Alaska tours jump off from Seattle on their way to Alaska which is a destination unto itself. So a lot of people spend an extra day in the Pacific Northwest, and with so much to see and do, we thought we’d help narrow down the options to the very best that the city has to offer.
I admit it. I love “Dancing with the Stars.” I always look forward to hearing who the new guest celebrities will be on the popular TV show and learning which pro dancer will be paired up with which new partner forthe season.
I also love cruising. So I was doubly happy when I heard that Holland America is combining the two for an exciting new cruise theme – “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea.”
Fun in the sun and sea is something that we love here at the office. We dream about getting away on a daily basis… after all, selling vacations all day can do that to a guy. With the weather finally turning warmer, our mind has turned to the beach – and specifically finding the best beaches for a Caribbean vacation. We’ve found five beaches that we think are just outstanding and help make the perfect Caribbean getaway.
Cruise lines seem to be in a continual game of one-upmanship. Royal Caribbean built an ice-skating rink aboard their vessels, Norwegian Cruise Line countered with a bar made entirely of ice. Carnival added a ropes course, and then Princess built a ship that has a glass-floored walkway that juts out over the ocean. With the latest announcements regarding the Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean is upping the bar yet again.
