20 Day New York to New Orleans

  • Cruise to Aruba & Jamaica in the Caribbean
  • Explore The Big Apple & The Big Easy
Includes Return International Flights

The Caribbean, New Orleans and New York City have long been melting pots of cultures from far and wide. Explorers and settlers all carved up their own slice of heaven on earth and developed their unique cultures by combining old world ways with the needs of the new lives they were forging. Their influences still stand today to create an eclectic mix of cultures to explore; think the pizza mecca of Manhattan, jazz music in New Orleans, Dutch architecture of Curacao and Mayan ruins in Cozumel. Discover it all on this 20 day deluxe cruise and stay package including flights, meals and more!

Arrive in the Big Apple with time to soak up the buzzing atmosphere of this incredible city. Staying in Manhattan, you will be perfectly positioned to explore many of the iconic destinations you have been longing to visit. Then, be whisked away on your 13 night cruise of the Southern Caribbean on board the 5-star Norwegian Cruise Line “Norwegian Breakaway” ship. The ship is a highlight of the trip itself; featuring a 400 metre long oceanfront promenade lined with restaurants and bars, Broadway entertainment shows, an aqua park and ‘freestyle’ cruising plans which let you do what you want when you want. Making a big loop through the Caribbean the cruise docks at iconic destinations like Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic and Mexico; while also making sure to take you off the beaten path to explore spectacular Dutch-Carib settlements such as Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba. Finally, taste the unique blend of cultures that the hometown of Jazz offers. Wander the toe tapping streets of New Orleans, try the local jambalaya and uncover the mysteries of the voodoo.

Want to cruise in more luxury? Ocean View, Balcony and Mini Suite upgrades are also available.

A small island with a desert landscape, Bonaire is not for everyone – but it is for divers and snorkelers who want to immerse themselves in a vibrant world under the sea. The beauty of Bonaire is that the coral reef, designated a national park, is just a few feet from the shoreline. Dozens of exceptional dive sites are easily accessible from the shore and teeming with life, making this island an independent diver's (and snorkeler's) paradise.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
  
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
New York
The weather in New York in November is noted for falling temperatures yet without the prolonged cold snaps that can occur during the winter months. Early this month afternoon high temperatures are still fairly mild; mostly in the around 15C with overnight lows around 7-8C.
 
New Orleans 
November is one of the loveliest months in New Orleans. Hurricane season is over, and "winter" is sliding in—it's not frigid by any means, but it's cool enough to enjoy outdoor activities easily. Oysters are in season and so is gumbo, and while the latter can technically be made any time of year, as a warming stew, it's best eaten when there's a chill in the air. 
 
Average High: 21 degrees celsius
Average Low: 13 degrees celsius
 
FLIGHTS
Seat Selection & Frequent Flyer Points:
At TripADeal we do not arrange seat selection. It is important to highlight that some Airlines do not allow pre-selected seats. We strongly suggest you contact the Airline directly with seating allocation requirements and or arrive at the airport earlier to arrange your seating. While we do not add frequent flyer member details to bookings, you can do this directly with the Airline once you have your flight information.
 
Passport Validity:
Customers are required to provide valid passport details either at the time of purchase, or no later than 45 days prior to departure date. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of the booking. In this instance customers will be responsible for any costs and fees incurred.
 
CRUISE
Disembarkation:
- Begins approximately 2 hours after docking.
- Due to security reasons, all guests must be on board 2 hours before sailing.
- Itineraries are subject to change at any time without notice.
- Check your specific sailing for exact departure and arrival times. All times are local to the port.
 
Cruise Loyalty Discounts:
Please note: Travellers booked via TripADeal will not be entitled to receive any cruise line customer loyalty discounts. Similar to airline frequent flyer programs, this is outside of the TripADeal booking process. However, customers may contact the cruise line direct upon receiving their TripADeal travel documents to request any membership benefits they are entitled to. 
 
OTHER
Fitness Level Required / Mobility:
Unfortunately our tours are currently not suitable for wheelchair users and those less mobile. 
 
Please note: a basic level of fitness will be required. If you have any concerns please consult your healthcare provider prior to purchase/travel.
 
Yellow Fever:
A valid international certificate of vaccination against Yellow Fever is required in many countries. You may need to present this on arrival at the airport or border crossing. Some countries will refuse entry if you are unable to present your certificate. It's also quite common for your home country to request a Yellow Fever certificate on your arrival back home.
 
It is your responsibility to check with your doctor well in advance of leaving home about the Yellow Fever requirements for the countries you'll be visiting.
 
Gratuities / Tipping:
Tipping for all services provided on tour is always a matter of personal discretion, however please be aware that tipping is considered by many locals to be a part of their normal remuneration and they may approach you for payment and there is no need to be intimidated by the request.
 
Cruise
Gratuities (tips) are not included in the tour price for the services of the cruise staff throughout the cruise component of this tour. Norwegian Cruise Lines is an internationally registered company & operates to US & European standards, both of which have an economy driven by a gratuities culture. Gratuities are expected on your cruise and will be charged to your onboard account at $15USD per person per day. If you have any questions in regards to the gratuities on your cruise please speak to the guest services staff onboard the ship.
  
Shopping:
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all of your receipts. 
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
 
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions in regards to shopping for further information.


United States:
- An ESTA (Visa Waiver) for the USA is a strict requirement when travelling to or flying through the USA.

For information on ESTA eligibility or to apply, please visit: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/
 
Please note: Due to recent changes in the USA Immigration policies, TripADeal recommend all travellers visit US Customs & Border Protection: https://www.cbp.gov/

A visa is not required if travelling on an Australian passport.

It is also important to note, some areas of employment such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.
