A holiday to Las Vegas followed by an Alaska cruise is a fantastic opportunity to get the best of two holidays in one. Experience the bright lights, casinos and nightlife of Las Vegas, then prepare to view some of the most stunning scenery on the planet as you cruise Alaska.
Start your holiday on The Las Vegas Strip, famous for its lavish casinos. Try a hand at the blackjack table of the MGM Grand or roll the dice at a roulette table in The Venetian. The luxury hotels on the Strip are a tourist attraction in themselves, check out the fountains, take a gondola ride or see a firework display.
After the neon lights of Las Vegas it’s time for a change of pace as you board Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Joy and embark on an Alaska cruise. Sail past majestic mountain peaks, spectacular fjords and plenty of wildlife against a backdrop of a dramatic coastline of glaciers and icebergs. Norwegian Joy has plenty of spots for you to enjoy these views from. The Observation Lounge offers spectacular panoramic views as does the Horizon Lounge.
There is plenty more to keep you entertained on-board. Highlights include the first ever race track at sea where you can drive your race car around the deck, an Aqua Park full of slides and fun, kids clubs, laser tag, mini golf, casinos and much more!
Dinner is ready whenever you are on-board Norwegian Joy and there is plenty of options to choose from. American style diners, French cuisine, Teppanyaki demonstrations, Italian restaurants…the choice is yours!
A highlight of embarkation day is that first dinner in the main restaurant where you'll meet your wait staff and tablemates. Order whatever you like from the menu of appetizers, salads, soups, and entrees, but save room for dessert!
Cruise ships are equipped with all the latest and greatest workout machines and a great workout facility, but why not pick exercise outside over any treadmill.
