Why It’s A Deal Cruise rates start at $549 (before taxes and fees) when booked directly through Norwegian Cruise Line. Add that to about $67 per person for the overnight stay at the Coast Gateway Hotel and about $50 per person for the transfers, and you’d pay at least $666 if you booked this trip independently. With this deal, you get all the same components for $67 less, plus the coupon book worth $400.
More Upgrades to ocean-view staterooms start at $240; balcony cabins, $520; and suites, $690. You can upgrade to a two-night Seattle package—including a stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel located downtown, within walking distance of the Seattle Waterfront, and all transfers—from $139 per person.
