Ahead of National Plan for Vacation Day (Jan. 31, 2023), Travel and Cruise Expert and Editor-in-Chief of Cruise Critic, Colleen McDaniel, Discusses How Norwegian Cruise Line is Helping Consumers Sail Away on That Dream Vacation
With Companies like Norwegian Cruise Line reporting record demand going into 2023, it demonstrates travelers are ready to get away...and sail away. In fact, a recent aaa survey finds 52% of U.S. adults are just as likely or more likely to consider taking a cruise vacation than they were before 2020. That number is up from 45% one year ago.
For those looking to maximize their vacation, cruising is a great option. It provides travelers with the opportunity to visit multiple destinations with only having to unpack once.
You can discover Europe's most charming port cities and wake up in a new country each day; and for those looking to reconnect with nature, a voyage through Alaska's Inside Passage takes travelers up close to the natural beauty and wildlife of the destination. With cruising, it's just as much about the journey as it is about the destination.
From discovering new places, to enjoying new experiences, cruising provides the variety and immersive experiences travelers are looking for. In fact, Norwegian Cruise Line sails to nearly 400 destinations worldwide and is preparing to debut its next groundbreaking ship – Norwegian Viva – during the summer of 2023.
As of January 24th, NCL is offering 50% off all cruises, plus free airfare for the second guest, free open bar, free specialty dining, free excursions, free WiFi, and more!
