Nice question of Parallelism....Parallelism here is
INCLUDING X (Noun), Y (Noun), and Z (Noun) - Correct
Including AIRFARE (Noun), FIVE NIGHTS (Noun), and HARBOR CRUISE (Noun) - Correct
Including AIRFARE , SPENDING FIVE NIGHTS, and to take a HARBOR CRUISE - INCORRECT
Including AIRFARE , TO SPEND FIVE NIGHTS, and to take a HARBOR CRUISE - INCORRECT

A) Incorrect because of the faulty parallelism as explained above.
B) Incorrect because of the faulty parallelism as explained above. Moreover, both Semicolon and Co-ordination conjunction should not be used before an Independent clause.
C) Correct
D) Incorrect because of the faulty parallelism as explained above.
A) Incorrect because of the faulty parallelism as explained above.
