Norwegian Cruise Line Expands 'Bus to Boat' Offerings; Names New Grammy Performers
Motor Coach Transfer (11:09 a.m. EDT) -- In an effort to make it easier for people to get to its Manhattan homeport, Norwegian Cruise Line is expanding its motor coach ground transportation program throughout several Mid-Atlantic and New England states. Six routes will be added.

Beginning May 3, passengers from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire can take advantage of direct bus service from 11 New England departure cities including: Warwick, Rhode Island; New London, Connecticut; New Haven, Connecticut; Bridgeport, Connecticut; Hartford, Connecticut; Braintree, Massachusetts; Worcester, Massachusetts; Springfield, Massachusetts; Woburn, Massachusetts; Framingham, Massachusetts; and Salem, New Hampshire.

New Mid-Atlantic routes will start May 31 and include: Arlington, Virginia; Baltimore, Maryland; Wilmington, Delaware; Philadelphia; and East Brunswick, New Jersey.

All transfers, regardless of departure city, are $110 round trip per adult and $75 per child.

The routes are being offered through a partnership with Academy Bus and are in addition to the line's current program with Yankee Trails World Travel.

In other Norwegian news, the lines will bring three more performers onboard Norwegian Getaway through its Grammy Experience at Sea program.

Sugar Blue, a harmonica player, will join Getaway this month. He has recorded and appeared with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and Ray Charles, among others. He won his Grammy in 1985 for Best Traditional Blues recording as a featured performer on the album Blues Explosion. He will perform on Getaway through June 14.

Grammy nominee Carolyn Malachi will perform onboard Getaway from June 15 through August 1. Her music style is described as spoken-word meets hip-hop, R&B and jazz fusion.

From August 2 to August 30, Getaway passengers will be treated to the music of Roddie Romero, a Grammy-nominated artist from Louisiana who plays traditional Cajun and zydeco music.
