Norwegian Cruise Line is offering guests on board Norwegian Jewel new shore experiences during her inaugural season in Australia and New Zealand. New ports of call including stunning destinations such as Milford Sound, Bay of Islands, Adelaide and Hobart have now been incorporated.

For a limited time, guests will also receive up to US$500 on board spend per stateroom on Australia and New Zealand sailings departing between 12 November 2017 and 10 February 2018.

For those that want free drinks and dining included in their cruise holiday, Norwegian’s ‘Free at Sea’ package has been extended until 10 April 2017, and invites guests to choose up to five free offers to add to their cruise, depending on the stateroom category booked.

Offers include a free beverage package; a specialty dining package for six specialty restaurants on board Jewel; 250 minutes free Wi-Fi; US$50 per port shore excursion credit, and the option to bring a third and fourth guest at a reduced rate.

Refurbished in 2014, Norwegian Jewel can host up to 2376 guests, enjoying personalised attention from 1069 professional crew.

She boasts a casino, eight complimentary restaurants, six specialty dining venues with á la carte and set-menu options, as well as cafés, a bake shop, and a myriad of specialty bars and lounges including cabaret, champagne, beer and whiskey, sake, mojito and the requisite poolside bar for lazy at-sea afternoon cocktails.

Fitness fans can enjoy the on-board outdoor court action hosting basketball, dodgeball, tennis and volleyball. Kids can play in the aqua-park, Sapphire pools and age-specific kids’ clubs, while gym enthusiasts can choose from a range of classes, including Zumba and yoga. For those looking to unwind and be pampered, the Mandara Spa and Spa Thermal Suite offers a full range of indulgent treatments designed to relax and rejuvenate passengers.
