In less than 60 days, Norwegian Cruise Line's Bliss makes her big debut sailing the Alaskan Inside Passage before heading to New York City, her home from November to April. Once upon a time, you'd have to go to Miami or Ft Lauderdale if you wanted to sail on the newest and best ships at sea. But thanks to the cruise industry's support of New York's Manhattan Cruise Terminal, those days are gone!
Today, it's hard to upstage Norwegian Cruise Line in NYC. They currently have a total of eight ships docked there and offer plenty of itineraries that appeal to just about everyone. NCL gives Northeast cruisers what they're looking for - younger, state-of-the-art ships, exciting itineraries, comfortable accommodations, affordable, all-inclusive vacations from an easy-to-get-to port. In fact, all four of NCL's newest ships - Bliss, Escape, Breakaway and Getaway, sail from Manhattan Cruise Terminal. Not sure which cruise is right for you? Here are some of our favorites:
