Super Bowl hotel rates tumble, vacation rentals empty

Norwegian Cruise Line’s colorful new cruise ship Norwegian Getaway is docked in New York where it’s serving as a floating hotel for the Super Bowl. The ship has been taken over by brewing company Anheuser-Busch, for 4,000 invited guests, and is being called the “Bud Light Hotel.” While the ship will be full, some New York hotels are dropping their prices sharply for Super Bowl weekend as rooms are not yet filled.
