Norwegian Cruise Line has recently announced a number of new Cruisetours exploring Hawaii, Europe and Alaska for its 2014 sailings.
The new Cruisetours will expand the line’s existing land-based programme, offering guests more ways to enhance their cruise with land-based holidays in Hawaii, Europe and Alaska.
Guests sailing on the week-long Hawaii island cruise on the Pride of America can enjoy the four-day, three-night ‘O’ahu Explorer’ Cruisetour, which is a great way to experience the best of the islands, especially O’ahu, which they’ll be able to explore at their leisure before the start of the cruise. Guests can expect to visit the legendary surfing hot-spot of Haleiwa, all the historic sights Pearl Harbour and on their final day, Kualoa Ranch, where they’ll find out all about the islanders’ traditional life.
There are three Cruisetours to choose from in Europe, so if the Baltics are your thing, then you’ll be able to enjoy a Gardens and Castles of Copenhagen tour, where you’ll spend three days taking in such sights as Christianborg Palace, Kronborg Castle and Tivoli Gardens. If you’re beginning your cruise in Barcelona meanwhile, you can spend four days exploring the city’s cultural side, with an Art and Architecture of Barcelona tour. You’ll be able to see Antoni Gaudi’s most famous works including La Sagrada Familia Basilica and Park Guell as well as paying a visit to the city’s famous Gothic Quarter and the 1992 Olympic Stadium. Guests joining in Venice will spend four days and three nights exploring the City of Romance on a Canals and Palaces of Venice experience, so if you’ve always dreamed of a Gondola Ride on the Grand Canal, now’s your chance. There’s also plenty of time to explore the lagoon islands and of course, the main architectural sights of the city.
If you’re in search of some Alaskan inspiration, NCL are offering a choice of four different pre or post cruise adventures, where there’s a host of exhilarating experiences to choose from, including a ride on the Alaska Railroad or an exciting dogsled tour.
