Norwegian Cruise Line is launching an Alaska Bonus Weekend limited time sales event beginning today, offering incredible savings on Norwegian’s once-in-a-lifetime cruise vacations to Alaska. Guests who book a 2012 Alaska sailing today through Sunday, May 20, 2012, will receive $100 per stateroom to spend on board towards exciting Alaska shore excursions; treatments in Norwegian’s award-winning spas; dinners in any of Norwegian’s Freestyle Dining restaurants and more.
Guests looking to experience the majestic beauty of Alaska this summer can set sail on board Norwegian Jewel or Norwegian Pearl, the youngest ships sailing in Alaskan waters. Norwegian Pearl is currently sailing to Alaska through September 16, 2012, and Norwegian Jewel will be sailing through Alaska from May 26 through September 8, 2012.
Both ships sail a series of seven-day cruises from Seattle to some of the most scenic destinations including Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and Victoria, British Columbia. Cruise fares are from $399 per person, double occupancy and guests who book this weekend can also receive up to $500 in airfare credits on select sailings, plus an e-coupon booklet valued at up to $400 in on board savings.
For families sailing in Alaska there will be no shortage of adventures. For a day of family fun, guests can board a catamaran specially designed for wildlife viewing on the Whale Watching and Wildlife Quest shore excursion, giving guests the chance to see whales, sea lions, porpoises and seals.
A trip to Alaska is not complete without a thrilling helicopter ride up to Denver Glacier to meet professional mushers and their dogs. The White Pass Scenic Railway is the perfect excursion for those who want to experience Alaska on rail, as well as at sea as they travel in an old-fashioned parlor car for a 40-mile round trip and travel through an awe-inspiring panorama of wilderness.
Families sailing on board Norwegian Jewel will delight in the exclusive Nickelodeon programming. Activities include breakfast with the characters, where kids – and adults – can eat, sing and play with SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Patrick, Diego and more; Dora’s Dance Party, where kids can join Dora and the Nickelodeon cast to dance and sing along; meet and greets with popular Nickelodeon characters, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and many more.
