Although the majority of cruises tend to be longer trips—with the average cruise being around 7 days—Norwegian also offers up the option for a short, romantic cruise for the night or the whole weekend. Most of these cruises are simple, round trip affairs where you won’t stop in port, but instead have a night or two to enjoy all of your ship’s fabulous amenities.
Nonetheless, Norwegian also offers 3 day weekend cruises from Miami to the Bahamas and back that are as perfect for families looking for fun and adventure as they are for couples looking for a little intimacy and romance. Best of all, all of NCL’s weekend cruises are incredibly affordable, often costing much less than a decent hotel room, with the added bonus of free food, fabulous entertainment, lively casinos and a whole lot more.
Weekend Cruising From The Big Apple
One of the most popular of all of NCL’s weekend cruises are the two night roundtrip cruises from New York City. Available throughout almost the entire year, these cruises give passengers a fantastic view of the Big Apple and all its surroundings, before heading out to spend two nights cruising the open Atlantic and finally returning home.
Depending on the time of the year, the company uses two different ships for these New York City weekend cruises—Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Breakaway—both of which are amongst the newest in the fleet. While Gem is undoubtedly one of the stars of the fleet and you’re sure to have fun aboard her, most critics would agree that she still can’t compete with Breakaway in terms of the onboard options and amenities. After all, with a whopping twenty-nine different dining options, Breakaway is definitely in a class of its own. Still, you’ll only be aboard the ship for two nights, so either way, you’re sure to find tons to love, no matter which ship you’re on.
Spend a Weekend in the Bahamas
Norwegian offers their always popular 3-day weekend Bahamas cruises every single weekend of the year, giving you plenty of options for the most memorable weekend of your life. After boarding Norwegian Sky in Miami on Friday evening, you’ll soon head off to visit both Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, and Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian’s very own private island, before finally returning back to Miami on Sunday morning.
There is no end to the activities and exciting excursions available, and both adults and children are sure to find this one of the most outstanding weekends of their lives.
Norwegian’s Other Weekend Cruises
Along with the aforementioned weekend cruises, NCL also offers a few other options, such as the two night Spanish cruise from Malaga to Barcelona aboard Norwegian Spirit, or the popular one night cruise from Seattle, Washington to Vancouver, British Columbia on Norwegian Pearl. Finally, there is also a romantic round trip weekend escape sailing from lively New Orleans on Norwegian Dawn.
With so many different options available, you should definitely consider Norwegian the next time you want to getaway for the weekend.
