Norwegians ride the upgrade wave to Alaska

Norwegian Cruise Line’s popular “Upgrade WAVE” sales event continues with extra savings for those looking to cruise through scenic Alaska. Guests who book a new Alaska cruise vacation today or tomorrow, January 15, 2013, will receive $100 on-board credit per stateroom (regardless of category), free balcony upgrades, up to $500 in air credits, and e-coupons worth up to $300 in savings to use onboard for spa treatments, personal training sessions, and discounts at the casino. In addition, when guests book an Alaska Cruisetour, they will receive an additional $100 to spend on board. The special offer is also combinable with exclusive AARP member discounts.

Vacationers looking to experience the majestic beauty of Alaska can set sail on board Norwegian Pearl or Norwegian Jewel.  Norwegian Pearl will sail a series of seven-day cruises from Seattle every Sunday from May 19, 2013 through September 22, 2013 and Norwegian Jewel sails from Seattle every Saturday from May 18, 2013 through September 14, 2013. Both ships visit some of the most scenic Alaska destinations including Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, as well as a stop in Victoria, British Columbia.

Beginning this spring, Norwegian Sun will also set sail to Alaska from May 13, 2013 through September 9, 2013, offering a series of seven-day cruises from either

Vancouver, British Colombia or Whittier, Alaska. 
Adventures abound in Alaska and when guests book a pre or post-cruise Cruisetour to round out their dream cruise vacation, they’ll receive an additional $100 to spend on board. Ranging in length from four to six days, explorers can select the perfect Alaskan adventure from four different packages. The tours are escorted by a local Alaskan guide, giving each guest the opportunity to experience the authentic beauty of Alaska. Each Cruisetour features two nights in Denali National Park, as well as a scenic ride on the iconic Alaska Railroad.

No matter which ship they choose, guests will have the opportunity to dine around the world in one of Norwegian’s specialty restaurants, including French, Asian, American, and the line’s newest restaurant, Moderno Churasscaria, a Brazilian-style steakhouse.
