Enjoy 50 per cent off your next NCL cruise with a further £250 airfare credit in a special end of year discount on select sailings

As the end of the year edges closer, now is the perfect time to start looking ahead and planning next year’s big holiday. And, luckily for us, Norwegian Cruise Line has an amazing 50 per cent discount to make their spectacular sailings even better.

Plus, NCL is throwing in up to £250 airfare credit per person on select sailings to make your travel to and from the ship even easier too.

What to expect on your NCL cruise

NCL visits over 450 of the world’s most inspiring destinations on a fleet of 20 fresh and modern ships. Onboard, flexibility and choice are the name of the game, with the line’s relaxed approach to cruising setting them apart from the crowd.

Eat wherever you want, whenever you want with up to 21 eateries onboard (depending on your ship). With a mixture of complementary and speciality dining concepts, there’s something for everyone, with so many different styles of cuisine to choose from such as Cagney’s Steakhouse or high-end Italian Onda by Scarpetta, you can dine somewhere different every day.

And when you’re not enjoying a tasty bite, NCL’s phenomenal range of entertainment is sure to keep you busy, from West End style musicals to fantastic dance bands and lounge entertainment. For something a little quieter, NCL ships also feature gorgeous observation lounges with perfect views of the ocean.

There really is something for everyone on an NCL cruise, including dedicated staterooms for solo travellers and exclusive luxury suites, with their own dedicated retreat on the ship, called ‘The Haven by Norwegian’.

A ‘Free at Sea’ package makes it even better

Give yourself the gift of an all-inclusive cruise experience by upgrading with a ‘Free at Sea’ package. This upgrade, which starts at £149 per person, gives you access to Premium Beverages, Speciality Dining, Wi-Fi and more for no further cost onboard.

The upgrade package also entitles you to exclusive discounts on shore excursions, and if you’re travelling as a group, only the first two guests in the stateroom need to pay for the cruise – the third and fourth guests in the room need only pay the applicable taxes on select sailings.
