Steal of the Week: Cruise Across the Atlantic From $50 Per Night

December 20, 2012 | By | Comments Off

Everyone is looking for the deal of the century. So how do you choose the one that’s right for you? Check the Lido Deck each week to get the scoop on our favorite deals — then grab the phone and pack your bags.
THE DEAL: is offering a 16-night transatlantic cruise on Norwegian Star, sailing from New Orleans to Copenhagen on April 21, 2013. Prices start from $799 per person for an inside cabin.

WHAT WE LOVE: Cross the Atlantic for less than $50 per person per night with this offer, which provides one-night post-cruise accommodations in Copenhagen, breakfast, transfer from ship to hotel and up to $300 in onboard savings. You can also choose to embark from either Miami or New Orleans. Along with plenty of relaxing days at sea, you’ll visit three very different ports: Ponta Delgada in the Azores, London and Helsingborg.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Norwegian Star is one of Norwegian’s older ships, so you’ll need to decide if you can make it across the ocean without a bowling alley or Blue Man Group. On that end, this sailing is not short – it’s more than two weeks from the U.S. to Europe – so you’ll need to be retired or use up a lot of vacation time to go. And if you’re on a budget, know that the one-way flight or flights can eat into your savings. To see how much flights will add to your vacation cost, compare flight prices with our sister site TripAdvisor’s meta-search tool.
