Norwegian August Promo Brings Distinctive Voyages

Norwegian Cruise Line‘s Distinctive Voyages promotion runs through August 31, offering travelers five distinct offers on select cruises. Guests who book one of the nine+ day sailings in any stateroom category will receive a 120-minute phone call package, 250 minute Internet package, $50 USD credit per port shore excursion, up to $400 USD in air credit and $100 USD hotel credit.  Right about here is where savy cruise travelers might think then ask “So what are the ‘select sailings’ being offered? Sometimes I can go or not? “   Rightfully so, cruise lines commonly limit the headlining offer to just a few sailings that are not selling well.  This is different and worthy of consideration.

Cruise deals are not normally the subject of what you read here and for good reason.  There are so many variables in the formula for matching the right cruise with the right traveler that most deals simply do not apply to everyone. We do have a Deals page where the latest offers from cruise lines are presented without comment, simply a cut and paste effort to have all the current offers in one place.  Interesting in this Norwegian Cruise Line Distinctive Voyages promotion: 121 different sailing dates.

Distinctive Voyages from Norwegian Cruise Line offer travelers the opportunity to choose from sailing the Baltics, to hiking the vast beautiful Australian outback, to exploring the jungles of South America and beyond. Valued at up to $5,000 when combined with Norwegian’s Free at Sea, the promotion runs through September 30.

To kickstart the promotion Norwegian Cruise Line began with a Balcony Bonus Week, where guests who booked a new five-night or longer cruise vacation in a balcony stateroom or higher through August 7th could receive up to $500 in free onboard spending money.  That’s over but the Distinctive Voyages promotion continues
