Beyond ‘The Big Easy’
Our cruise and stay deals to New Orleans all include time in other fantastic destinations. This makes these holidays great value for money and rich in a range of experiences.
There’s a selection of cruise and stay deals that visit New Orleans, Chicago and Memphis . These are a real treat for the senses stopping off at America’s famous music cities.
Chicago remains a popular hub for live blues, jazz and other genres of music. There’s so much more to it though as you’d expect from one of the largest cities in the US. There are plenty of shops, bars, comedy clubs, cultural attractions and sports venues.
There are some wonderful river walks and cruises available in Chicago, and sports fans won't want to miss a trip to Wrigley Field - home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. So whether you're looking to take it easy or have an action-packed evening, Chicago will be a captivating part of your cruise and stay holiday to the US .
Walking in Memphis
Memphis, Tennessee, is located by the majestic Mississippi River. It's home to so many musical attractions, with Graceland being the most popular. There's also the famous Sun Studio, where many big names recorded music, including Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis. Memphis has some fascinating museums too, including the National Civil Rights Museum and the Blues Hall of Fame exhibition. Look forward to making new memories in Memphis with Viva Cruise.
No trip to Memphis would be complete without visiting Beale Street. This is one of the most famous streets in America and has to be experienced first-hand. Immerse yourself in its rich history as you enjoy live music, have a bite to eat in one of the many eateries or browse the many eclectic shops looking for a souvenir of your stay.
Fall in love with LA
Los Angeles is part of a remarkable cruise and stay holiday deal that takes in six iconic American cities over the space of three weeks. There's a lot you can pack into your time in the 'City of Angels'. Celebrity tours, first-class sports, days at the beach, superb shopping, panoramic views and top-quality cuisine are just some recommended activities.
Whether you want to see where the rich and famous live, experience the thrill of Universal Studios or see LA from a different vantage point at Griffith Observatory, the world is your oyster in this enthralling Californian city.
The perfect combination of modern and ancient
The bright lights of Las Vegas are sure to be a lasting memory of your cruise and stay break to America. As well as taking in a fantastic show and visiting the casinos, this part of your holiday includes a bus tour of the mesmerising Grand Canyon.
Las Vegas is a place like no other. If you've never visited before, you're in for a real treat. A walk or limousine trip along the famous Strip is a must-do, and there's so much to see along the 4.2 miles. Of course, the tranquillity of the Grand Canyon is the complete opposite, but that's what makes this leg of your cruise and stay deal so remarkable.
A taste of San Francisco
San Francisco's sights are world-renowned. Thanks to the Golden Gate Bridge, charming old cable cars, exquisite seafood, and other culinary delights, it's a special city. This part of Northern California boasts some beautiful natural scenery too. The city has a great laid-back vibe, making it the perfect final destination on your cruise and stay getaway.
Other places of note include Chinatown, Alcatraz Island and the beautiful winding Lombard Street. And if you’re of legal drinking age, make sure to sample some of the renowned local wines.
Cruise and stay holiday benefits
There are many benefits of booking a cruise and stay deal with Viva Holidays. Our travel team has carefully researched each trip to ensure you get the maximum enjoyment and value for money.
The versatility of cruise and stay holidays makes them an excellent fit for anyone. Whether you're looking for a memorable trip for two or a fantastic family break, there's so much to keep all ages entertained.
Taking multiple separate trips stateside to visit each city individually or having a cruise holiday and a city break at different times may be beyond your budget. Our cruise and stay packages bring together the best of all worlds so you can experience a memorable multi-centre holiday and cruise without breaking the bank.
With many people having missed out on holidays in 2020 and 2021, what amounts to lots of mini-breaks in one go is appealing. And America has plenty to offer. For example, one day you could be listening to live jazz in a bustling bar then sunbathing on the deck of a cruise ship the next as you glide towards the lovely warm waters of Mexico.
Top-quality cruise accommodation
As well as a great selection of hand-picked hotels during your stay, you’ll also love the surroundings when you’re out at sea. Your home from home on the ocean waves will depend on which New Orleans cruise and stay deal you choose. You can rest assured that the food, onboard entertainment and comfort will surpass your expectations.
A Carnival atmosphere
The Carnival Glory, Panorama and Valor all enjoy a great reputation and have many glowing reviews from passengers all over the world. The Panorama is the newest and largest of the fleet, with the Glory and Valor having been refurbished in 2017 and 2016, respectively.
These amazing cruise liners have everything you can imagine and more. They're more like floating cities rather than hotels and have amenities to suit all tastes, needs and budgets. These include things such as shops, spas, sports facilities, live music and comedy, to name just a few.
Cruise and stay holidays also provide an excellent opportunity to do as little as possible between stops so you can recharge your batteries and just enjoy gliding along without a care in the world. If you're on a family holiday, then your children will undoubtedly have plenty of fun activities to try onboard while you await the delights of your next destination.
Fulfil your Caribbean dreams
A full-board Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway is a magical way to spend time with family or friends. It comes with its own oceanfront promenade offering spectacular vistas, Broadway entertainment, waterslides and is instantly recognisable with its colourfully decorated hull.
At 326 metres in length and with over 1,600 crew, this Norwegian Cruise Line vessel is a spectacular way to sail the Caribbean while enjoying every moment courtesy of the wealth of amenities onboard.
A flexible choice
When you're looking to book a family holiday, it's not always easy to make sure everyone is catered for. However, the beauty of our cruise and stay deals is not only in the price but their flexibility too.
There are hundreds of fabulous attractions for all ages on dry land in the various city stops. For example, you can enjoy a day at Universal Studios, a trip to the zoo, a baseball game and more. And when you're at sea, there's a great assortment of dining options and movie theatres, activities, comedy, live bands etc., to make sure all ages are entertained throughout your stay.
Cruise and stay holidays also make for a memorable honeymoon. You can start your new life together in a wonderful way by cruising the Caribbean and enjoying the musical cities such as New Orleans, Chicago and Memphis that party into the small hours.
