Mycenae reveals ancient wonders as you explore the narrow walkways of the walled city before visiting Epidaurus, a village famed for its Hellenic theater.
The port of Piraeus harbors its own treasures: Within the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus stands a bronze statue of Athena, and sunset by the water is best enjoyed over local seafood at Varoulko Seaside Restaurant.
Gelato in Greece? You bet. Look no further than Le Greche, where velvety rich gelato is prepared with ingredients such as Cycladic honey and figs from Kalamata.
Step Back in Time
Hop aboard a hydrofoil from Piraeus to the island of Hydra, where you'll notice that no motor vehicles exist. Be prepared to travel by water taxis, mules and donkeys!
After strolling the cobblestone roads of Plaka, head to the fashionable Kolonaki neighborhood, which boasts upscale shops and the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture.
Enjoy breathtaking views of the Acropolis over a meal at GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar – part of your stay at Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens.
It’s always smooth
sailing with Norwegian Cruise Line,® from your first cruise to your next grand adventure.
There’s nothing quite like the anticipation before a cruise vacation:
new discoveries that await in port, beautifully prepared meals every night and
the lifelong friendships that you’ll form. Whether you’re gearing up for your
first-ever voyage or inviting your loved ones to earn their own sea legs with
you, Norwegian Cruise Line® brings all the elements together for a perfectly
Step One: Where Should I Go?
When the urge to travel strikes, it’s impossible to ignore. The only
question we have is, how soon can you leave? When we arrange your voyage with
Norwegian Cruise Line, you can select from 15 different regions across the
globe — with options that appeal to your sense of adventure and that can be
tailored for a romantic escape, a grand reunion or fun family vacation.
Go wild in Alaska on an Inside Passage cruise roundtrip out of Seattle.
Nature and culture come together in the most beautiful ways as you hike through
Tongass National Forest, enjoy an authentic salmon bake in Skagway, and set off
from Ketchikan on a black bear safari in the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary.
For sheer island bliss, it’s hard to beat a Hawai‘I cruise —
particularly one that includes overnight stays on both Maui and Kaua‘i. By
spending nearly 100 hours in port, visiting four different islands in seven
days, you can make the most of every sunny minute. Snorkel with sea turtles and
zip line through lush rainforest, and even tee off in front of incredible ocean
views thanks to Norwegian Cruise Line’s golf program that gives you access to
30 breathtaking courses.
Barcelona serves as a sophisticated base for an adventure to some of
the great cultural capitals around the Western Mediterranean. On a seven-day voyage,
you’ll witness the highs and lows of ancient Rome, from its eerie catacombs to
the ethereal ceiling inside the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel. More treasures are in
store as you stroll Cannes’ famous La Croisette boulevard and enjoy an authentic
taste of Naples’ greatest export: pizza.
Step Two: What Should I Wear?
A sense of freedom underscores Norwegian Cruise Line’s philosophy of
Freestyle Cruising.® With Freestyle Dining, you can dine where, when and with
whomever you wish. So dress up or dress down, it’s always your choice.
A more challenging decision is where you’ll eat every day and night,
with up to 27 different dining venues on board. Classic Mexican dishes like enchiladas
de mole get a twist in Los Lobos Cantina, and authentic pasadores carve slices
of slow-roasted beef tableside in the Brazilian steakhouse, Moderno. Look
forward to an evening of fun at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville at Sea, while
elegance — and oysters on the half shell — await at Ocean Blue restaurant.
Step Three: What Will I Do on Board?
A place as enormous as Alaska deserves two ships that loom just as
large: Norwegian Bliss and her
sister, Norwegian Joy, launching
April 2019. Norwegian’s largest ships to date offer such cool amenities as a
bilevel Race Track and the four-deck-high Aqua Racer tube water ride. Stroll
along The Waterfront and watch the Tony-winning musical “Jersey Boys” before
kicking up your heels to live music at the Texas-style smokehouse, Q.
Island hopping around Hawai‘i is equally exciting aboard Pride of
America, which underwent a major refurbishment a few years ago and came back a
whole new ship. You’ll develop a new perspective of Polynesian culture with
performances and onboard ambassadors who lead hula lessons and other immersive
workshops. In between activities, relax on your private balcony or on deck as
you watch for whales or witness the dramatic Nāpali Coast coming into view.
In between action-packed days on land, we promise that “bored” won’t
even cross your mind when you’re at sea. On Norwegian Epic, you can make a real
splash under the Mediterranean sun at the Aqua Park’s two pools, five hot tubs
and 200-foot Epic Plunge, the first bowl slide at sea. Roll a strike in the
full-size bowling alley, get a stress-reducing massage at the Mandara Spa. And catch
“Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” or another dazzling production in the Epic
With all that Norwegian Cruise Line has to offer, it’s your ideal introduction to cruising or a perfect way to introduce your friends and family to the experience. Let us walk you through the process and we’ll design a voyage that creates indelible memories.
You won't need a
road map to experience more than you imagined during your Hawai‘i vacation.
It’s time to Let Hawai‘i Happen.
On the island of O‘ahu, a trip north from Honolulu takes you along a
winding highway toward Hanalei Town. Stop at roadside trucks selling plump,
buttery shrimp — the heavily graffitied Giovanni’s truck is perhaps the most
famous, but you’ll run into many more local favorites. In Waimea Valley, cool
off with a plunge into Waimea Falls and end in the surfing town of Hale‘iwa
with a refreshing and colorful shave ice.
The island of Hawai‘i is filled with dramatic vistas like the
magnificent summits of Maunakea and Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Once you
experience those essential sights, drive toward the coast, stopping at the onyx-colored
sands of Punalu‘u Beach. On this magical black beach, you’ll stroll on smooth
sands and spot sea life in the clear waters.
Depart the coast of Maui for the agricultural haven of Upcountry Maui.
Pause to watch the windsurfers in action in Pā‘ia, then wander the mazes of lavender
fields in Kula and explore the soulful arts community in the paniolo cowboy
town of Makawao. Take time to go even farther off the grid and fly to Moloka‘i,
the birthplace of hula , or hop aboard a ferry from Maui to Lāna‘i to discover
just how luxurious true seclusion can be.
Much of Kaua‘i feels off the beaten path, considering that at least 80
percent of the island is not accessible by car. On the northwest side of Kaua‘i,
the undulating Nāpali Coast is so remote that it’s only reachable by boat or
air. Any way you choose to explore, your adventures here are well-rewarded, but
our advice is to approach it by helicopter for spectacular views of the
majestic cliff “cathedrals” framed by aquamarine seas.
