Norwegian offers new air/hotel package for Houston cruises

Norwegian offers new air/hotel package for Houston cruises
Norwegian Cruise Line said its new, inclusive package from Houston offers an easy way to book air, hotel accommodations and a Caribbean sailing aboard the recently enhanced Norwegian Jewel. The package gives the option of round-trip air from major US cities, along with transfers, one-night pre-cruise accommodations, a seven-night Western Caribbean cruise, three specialty dinners on board and more.

The price starts at $599 per person without air and $999 per person with air.

Included are one night in a deluxe room at the Crowne Plaza Houston River Oaks, with transfers from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise pier. Once on board, passengers get three dinners for two at specialty restaurants including Cagney’s steak house, Le Bistro and the traditional Italian restaurant La Cucina.

In addition, cruisers will receive a special delivery of gourmet chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of wine, along with 20 professional photos capturing on-board occasions and more than $300 worth of e-coupon savings to use at Norwegian Jewel's shops, spa, fitness classes and more.

Passengers also have the option of including round-trip air from major US gateways to Houston in their package.

Norwegian Jewel recently underwent a major refurbishment as a part of the Norwegian NEXT program, including the addition of O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill, Sugarcane Mojito Bar and Carlo's Bake Shop by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC’s 'Cake Boss' and 'Next Great Baker.'

Norwegian Jewel is scheduled to sail from Houston Oct. 11 through April 11, with weekly calls at Cozumel, Belize City and Banana Coast, Honduras.
