CLOSTER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 21, 2001--Norwegian Cruise Line's ships, The Sun and The Star, provide the best alternative dining program afloat, according to Stephanie Abrams, twenty-two year travel industry veteran and cruise expert, who attended the historic double-inaugural of the ships.
Abrams, representing the Travel Network chain of travel agencies, a division of REZconnect Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ(otcbb): REZT), at the spectacular champaign double-christening, reports that NCL's concept of "FreeStyle Cruising" provides passengers with a multitude of restaurants on board to choose from so guests dine where they choose, when they prefer, ordering specialty cuisine in surroundings to fit the menu.
"Adding The Sun and The Star to the NCL Sky gives NCL a distinct advantage for passengers who want the freedom to plan their dining experiences around their activities," Abrams explains.
"While other cruise lines talk about offering alternative dining programs, NCL has constructed their ships to provide specific restaurant environments with eight to twelve restaurants onboard offering every kind of cuisine imaginable! Passengers may choose to enjoy a festive formal night any evening or dine in casual attire simply by choosing one of the onboard restaurants where elegant or casual dining is the theme," Abrams states.
The unique restaurants include a chic Italian bistro that Abrams describes as," the kind of setting you'd expect to see in a classic Audrey Hepburn-Cary Grant film," a Sushi Bar and Japanese restaurant, Spanish Tapas, Indian, French, Asian Fusion, and "health focused" Spa restaurant among the many choices.
To give travelers a "true taste of the product, they've made it affordable for travelers to take 2 cruises for the price of one!" Abrams reports. By contacting their closest Travel Network travel agency where, interested travelers can speak with a Cruise Consultant and get what Abrams describes as, "the best deal around."
"This is a real gift of the season. . . buy an NCL winter cruise and get an NCL summer cruise for FREE! By visiting, travelers can find an agency and communicate with a cruise specialist who can explain the ships' itineraries and the dates that passengers may choose from for their winter cruise and their corresponding FREE summer cruise. "It just doesn't pay to stay home!" Abrams concludes.
