Norwegian Launches new air and hotel packages from Houston

Norwegian Cruise Line is launching an all-new inclusive package from Houston, Texas, offering cruisers an easy way to book air, hotel accommodations and a Caribbean cruise aboard the recently enhanced Norwegian Jewel. The extensive package comes complete with the option of roundtrip air from major cities across the U.S., along with transfers, one-night pre-cruise accommodations, a seven-night Western Caribbean cruise aboard Norwegian Jewel, three specialty dinners onboard and more.

Guests booking the inclusive Houston Caribbean cruise vacation package will enjoy a relaxing, one-night stay in a deluxe room at the Crowne Plaza Houston River Oaks, complete with complimentary transfers from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise pier. Once on board, guests will enjoy three spectacular dinners for two at popular specialty restaurants, including the line’s signature steakhouse Cagney’s; guest-favorite Le Bistro; and the traditional Italian restaurant La Cucina.

In addition, cruisers will receive a special delivery of gourmet chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of wine, along with 20 complimentary professional photos capturing their favorite on board memories, and more than $300 worth of e-coupon savings to use at the onboard shops, spa, fitness classes and more. Guests also have the option of including roundtrip air from major U.S. gateways to Houston in their package.

Norwegian Jewel recently underwent a major refurbishment as a part of the Norwegian NEXT program, bringing new enhancements, experiences and transformations to Norwegian’s young, modern fleet.  Cruisers who take advantage of this Houston package will experience Norwegian Jewel’s new features like the popular O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill, Sugarcane Mojito Bar, and Carlos’ Bake Shop by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC’s Cake Boss and Next Great Baker.  The ship will also soon feature interactive touch screen signs that allow guests to order specialty items, get directions and reserve dining and shore excursions simply with a scan of their stateroom key.

Featuring 16 dining options, 13 bars and lounges, exciting entertainment including Nickelodeon™ and some of the largest suites at sea in The Haven™, Norwegian Jewel offers something for every cruiser.  The ship features two pools, plus a dedicated kids-only pool, six hot tubs, a fitness center, spa and beauty salon, along with a full-size basketball court and the Jewel Club Casino.


Norwegian Jewel begins sailing a series of Western Caribbean cruises from Houston on October 11, 2014 through April 11, 2015, with stops in Cozumel, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; and Banana Coast, Honduras.
