THE DEAL: Norwegian Cruise Line is offering free cruise fare for kids when booked as the third (through eighth) passenger in a cabin by March 31.
WHAT WE LOVE: Free cruises for kids are a strong incentive to book that family cruise vacation, whether you’re eyeing spring break or this summer. We’ve noticed that late in wave season this year, more cruise lines are allowing children to sail for nothing. The bonus with this Norwegian deal is that it’s combinable with others, including their Ultimate Freesome promotion, which offers balcony upgrades and drink and dining packages. With family-friendly facilities and Getaway – a whole new ship to explore – this deal may help make your mind up about that vacation.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: As with booking a cruise any time the kiddies don’t have school, you’re at risk for a crowded and potentially rambunctious experience. Peak vacation periods are approaching, so select your timeframe wisely; you only have a few weeks to etch out that vacation time as this offer is ending March 31.
