Empire Builder Experience:
Just a few generations ago, the route of the Amtrak Empire Builder was wilderness, roamed by Native Americans and buffalo. Later, fur traders and gold miners visited it. And still later, it was developed by merchants, timber men, farmers and - most dramatically - by railroaders. The Empire Builder's historic 2,206 mile journey takes you from Chicago to Seattle through unforgettable, jaw-dropping scenery of the majestic North and Pacific Northwest of the United States. You will have a private room and all of your meals included. You'll be traveling through Minnesota, North Dakota Rocky Mountains and Glacier National Park before arriving in Chicago. The floor to ceiling glass windows will ensure that you won't miss any of the spectacular Scenery. Delicious meals are available in the Dining Car, or lighter fare is available in the Sightseer Lounge car.

Norwegian Jewel was designed for freestyle cruising and has ten distinctive restaurants, 14 separate lounges and bars and a wealth of activities. It also features 10 courtyard villas. However the increased venues result in reduced deck space. Norwegian Pearl passengers tend to be Mixed Ages and International. When all cabins have double occupancy, the ship provides a space ratio of 37.9 tons per passenger and a crew to passenger ratio of one for every 2.5 passengers. At full capacity the space ratio is 33.4 tons per passenger and the crew ratio is one to 2.8 passengers.
Enjoy a four-course meal and a great bottle of wine. Or grab a burger hot off the grill. Dress up. Dress down. Sit with your friends or make new ones. Dine inside or oceanside along The Waterfront. Norwegian offers the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Dining, which means no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating. With expert chefs cooking with only the freshest and finest ingredients, you can enjoy more delicious dining options than days of your cruise – whenever you like. So follow your mood, not a schedule.
You won’t believe your eyes or even your ears. Norgwegian Cruise Lines have brought Broadway to sea with blockbuster shows, music, dancing, cabaret, comedy and more. You can party all night, grab some great casino action and find your favourites among up to 22 bars and lounges, from electrifying nightspots to cosmopolitan bars and easy-going pubs. Every night is a night on the town.
Feel free to follow your spirit, whether that takes you to a superb fitness centre, a sun lounger by the pool or to the serenity of a luxurious spa. Get the adrenaline soaring by conquering the climbing wall or ropes course high above the ocean. Flex your muscles on the sports court or treat yourself to something special in the boutiques. Catch a fun, informal lecture. Take the plunge in the Aqua Park.
Families play better together on Norwegian. From dodgeball to cupcake decorating, there are lots of activities all over the ships. Plus, with complimentary youth programmes, kids can learn to juggle at Circus School in Splash Academy and teens have the coolest themed parties in Entourage. Add exclusive NickelodeonTM entertainment at sea for kids of all ages – even the grown up ones – and your family holiday gets awesome. While the kids are having fun, so can you, indulging in a spa treatment, enjoying a leisurely meal or just switching off. And when it comes to bedtime, family-friendly accommodation gives everyone the elbow room they need. Night, night.
