Norwegian Encore

Starting at $4,500


Cruise Features Included:    

  • Shuttle/Bus Transportation - to and from Washington DC Area International Airport - Washington-Dulles (IAD), Washington-Reagan (DCA) or Baltimore (BWI).

  • Flights to Miami returning from Seattle - exact airlines and itinerary to be determined.

  • Transfer between the Airport and ship in Miami and Seattle - we board the ship in Miami, Florida before our cruise and sail through the Panama Canal to the Pacific Ocean disembarking in Seattle, Washington after our cruise where we will be transferred back to the airport for our overnight flight back east.

  • 22-Day Cruise on Norwegian Encore including meals, entertainment and activities onboard the ship and featuring a free day at sea to relax and unwind between most port calls as we visit 7 countries (Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, USA and Canada) with stops at 12 ports of call including: Miami, Cartagena, Panama City, Puntarenas, Puerto Quetzal, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Victoria and Seattle, and 9 relaxing days at sea between our port calls.   

  • Bonus Amenities During Our Cruise including a Free Ultimate Beverage Package ($1,798 value) and a Free 3-Meal Specialty Dining Package ($166 value) for each guest.  In addition, each cabin receives $100 onboard credit, while balcony cabins also receive a $50 Excursion Credit for each port (up to $550 value) and 300 minute Internet Package.

    • Please note that you can decline the Ultimate Beverage and Specialty Dining Package and receive a $500 cost reduction per person (since $500 is included in our Total Package Price to cover the cost of the service charges/bartender and waiter tips for these packages).  You can then purchase your own drink package (perhaps a soda package - $262.68 per person) or specialty dining package (starting at $118.80 per person for 2 meals) with your savings.  But honestly, the cost difference is not significant enough in my opinion to decline the Ultimate Beverage and Specialty Dining Package even if you only have one drink per day during our cruise.​

  • Access to Exclusive Customized Tours with Salisbury Cruise Club - We will organize at least one custom tour in each port-of-call which will be offered at cost to our group.  Additional tours will be available to book with NCL.

  • Tour Hosts (Kelly and Tracy Shannahan, Sal and Colleen Chavez) with you from start to finish.

  • Several free gifts and mementos of your cruise from the Salisbury Cruise Club.
