Here’s a Christmas present your clients might want to consider. Getting a jump on what promises to be a wild Wave Season, Norwegian Cruise Line announced its “Greatest Deal Ever” Black Friday Sale: a month-long second-guest-sails-free promotion.

Combined with the existing Free at Sea program, the offer means your client can bring along a spouse or other guest at no cost—not even for airfare or wifi. (And combined with the offer it made earlier this week, it means travel advisors can get commissions on what used to be non-commissionable items.)

NCL said the offer will run from today through December 5, and applies to any voyage to any destination on any of its 18 ships.

The promotion can be combined with the Free At Sea program, which offers six perks at no extra cost:

  1. Free unlimited open bar
  2. Free specialty dining
  3. Free shore excursions credits
  4. Free WiFi
  5. Free airfare for the second guest when airfare is purchased for the first guest
  6. Discounted rates for friends and family, which offers guests three and four, regardless of age, to sail free or at a reduced rate of $99 per person based on select sailings when sharing a stateroom with guests one and two.

That’s just what they’re up to at Icy Strait Point and Ketchikan, where Norwegian Encore’s August 7th post-Covid maiden voyage included two ribbon cuttings in the 49th state.

It’s amazing what has been accomplished in just 80 days, the locals say, since Alaska got the word that there was going to be any cruise ship season at all in 2021. The raven and the eagle that watch over the native tribes surely were at work, when “a piece of legislation that hasn’t been touched in years was changed with 100% consent in the House and the Senate and signed by the President in Read the rest of this entry »

With Norwegian Prima Debut, NCL Adds Class

The Haven moves aft, the sea comes closer, the rooms get bigger. The Waterfront doubles in size, wraps around the deck and adds a global food hall. There are new infinity pools, glass bridges and an outdoor lounge. And, to add to the excitement, some lucky travel advisors get to sail free.

In a series of hints, tweets and press conferences, Norwegian Cruise Line ended months of relative quiet this week with one big reveal of what it has been quietly working on while the pandemic raged around it. The Norwegian Prima, the first new ship and new class in a decade, goes on sale today. Read the rest of this entry »
