As we enjoy our Kiwi summer, it’s time to pull out the diary and plan ahead to take advantage of all the amazing Early Bird Cruise offers for Summer 2021/22. If you are sitting on a Future Cruise Credit left over from a cancelled cruise in 2020, then these are a great way to put them to good use,
Let’s take a look at the most popular cruise deals from Auckland that Kiwis are booking this week for Summer 2021/22 and why they are such firm favorites with Kiwis
Norwegian Spirit is a personal favourite of ours. She is relatively small compared to her larger siblings, with a capacity of around 1996 guests. Small enough to slip in to our prettiest locations, but still large enough to be fully loaded with the Freestyle Options that Norwegian Cruise Lines are so well known for
HOOT Tip: Norwegian Spirit features the fabulous specialty dining restaurant Onda by Scarpetta. This is a divine fine dining Italian experience, so make sure you book it early in your cruise personaliser as it is often fully booked by the time you get on board.
LATEST SPECIAL OFFERS: Norwegian Cruise Lines are currently fully loading their holidays with a Take 5 for Free deal. This includes: Drinks package, Wifi Package, Speciality Dining Package, US$50 per port per room Shore Excursion credit and reduced rates for 3rd & 4th guest sharing.
Deposits from just $180 per person
