2022 Summer Cruises to The Bahamas
If it's beautiful white-sand beaches and sunny days you're in search of, consider a Bahamas cruise for you and that special someone.
Cruises to the Bahamas are great as Norwegian offers short weekend escapes if you don't have a lot of time for a summer vacation. Enjoy Great Stirrup Cay, which is reserved for Norwegian Cruise Line guests only. You can relax on the pristine beaches, go kayaking, rent a WaveRunner, do some snorkeling, and so much more. If you want the ultimate in relaxation, rent a private cabana or luxury villa for the day. Depending on the cruise you choose, you might also stop at Grand Bahama Island, where you have a chance to swim with the iconic Bahamian pigs.
2022 Summer Cruises to Alaska
Norwegian offers a large selection of cruises to Alaska in 2022. Depending on the amount of time you have available, you can escape for a quick five-day Alaska cruise or experience an Alaska Cruisetour, which combines a week-long cruise vacation with several days on land before or after your cruise.
Depending on the sailing you choose, you could visit one or more of these Alaska cruise ports:
- Sitka: Enjoy ample wildlife spotting opportunities in Sitka, where you might see whales, deer, brown bears, various birds, and sea otters.

2022 Summer Cruises to The Caribbean
Another option for your summer vacation is a Caribbean cruise. If you're unsure whether you want to explore The Caribbean or the Bahamas, why not cruise to ports of call in both areas? Choose a cruise that visits Cozumel in Mexico plus Great Stirrup Cay. Choose a Western Caribbean itinerary that includes Mexico, Norwegian's exclusive destination Harvest Caye in Belize, and beautiful Roatan, Honduras. Explore Mayan sites, snorkel the world's second-largest barrier reef system, learn how Maya chocolate is made, go zip lining, and more.
