If you have a month to spare, you can sail aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Star for 28 days as she sails from Copenhagen, Denmark to Los Angeles, California on October 6, 2014 — at a bargain price.
As of this writing, Norwegian Cruise Line has this sailing priced from US$1,699 per person for an inside cabin. Yes, that’s about $60 per day per person. Act quickly. These prices will likely increase by the time you search for fares.
The trans-continental voyage is made up mostly of sea days. But the ports of call that Norwegian Star are intriguing, giving guests a taste of Europe, the Azores, the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and California — all on one voyage.
Norwegian Star will sail to Ponta Delgada, Azores; St. Thomas, USVI; Miami, Florida; Cartagena, Columbia; the Panama Canal; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; Puerto Chiapas, Mexico; Huatulco, Mexico; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, arriving in Los Angeles on November 3, 2014.
Norwegian Epic To Sail From Southampton
Norwegian Cruise Line announced that it will be sending the 4,100-guest Norwegian Epic to Southampton, England in 2015 for two special sailings, marking the first time the ship has visited the historic maritime port since her maiden voyage in June of 2010.
On September 20, 2015, Norwegian Epic will depart Barcelona, Spain on a six-night sailing to Southampton that calls on Cartagena, Spain; Malaga, Spain; and Lisbon, Portugal. She’ll then proceed to drydock in France, emerging on October 11, 2015 to sail on a special seven-night Iberian Peninsula cruise from Southampton to Barcelona. On this voyage, Norwegian Epic will call on Vigo, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Malaga, Spain; and Cartagena, Spain.
Although she was initially lambasted for her odd physical appearance, Norwegian Epic is actually a pretty cool ship. She’s the precursor to the ground-breaking Norwegian Breakaway, and she was the first Norwegian Cruise Line ship to pioneer the line’s popular Studio Staterooms and the first to truly brand and exploit The Haven, Norwegian’s upscale ship-within-a-ship concept to its full potential.
Some of Epic’s fun features include the Svedka Inniskillin Ice Bar – the first true ice bar at sea, complete with parkas, gloves, and even drink inserts made of solid ice.
These new sailings were added as part of Norwegian Epic’s program of variable-duration Western Mediterranean itineraries and exotic 10-night Canary Islands and Morocco voyages on offer during the 2015 season.
