Experience NCL Freestyle Cruising
See the World the Norwegian Way aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s award-winning ships. Cruise to the pink sand beaches of Bermuda or through the islands of Hawaii. See the beauty and wilderness of Alaska or explore historic European cities along the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas. Freestyle cruising means you can follow your own schedule and vacation just the way you want.
Freestyle cruising gives you more choices of what to do and the freedom to set your own pace. Indulge in a wide range of dining options, enjoy a variety of onboard activities, and experience the shore excursions of your choice.
Norwegian Cruise Line Freestyle Cruising offers fun activities and events for the entire family. Norwegian’s revamped, complimentary youth program has age-appropriate, supervised creative play, sports, and more.
While the kids are entertained at Splash Academy or Entourage you can enjoy some grown-up alone time with spa treatments, specialty dining, fitness programs and entertainment such as the “Blue Man Group.” It’s no surprise that Norwegian Cruise Line is voted among the top large-ship cruise lines for families by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
The Haven is Norwegian Cruise Line’s contemporary and exclusive enclave at the top of the ship. Spacious suites and villas surround a secluded courtyard that has quiet places to dine, drink and relax. A private pool and sundeck, fitness area and hot tub are available only to Haven residents. Haven guests also have the personal service of a concierge and 24-hour butler throughout their entire stay. Read more about The Haven by Norwegian on our Travel Maestro blog.
Norwegian Cruise Line offers the largest suites at sea. That means a couple can relax and recharge in a sumptuous retreat or a group of up to eight can stay and play together in a spacious suite with a living room and an expansive balcony. Families love accommodations with connecting staterooms near the children’s areas, so they are never far ways from fun.
Solo staterooms designed and priced especially for single travelers are among Cruise Critics 2020 Editor’s Picks. The award winning solo staterooms allow single guests to celebrate me-time without paying double. And when Solo Stateroom guests are ready to mingle, they get exclusive access to the Studio Lounge.
Spa Suites are tranquil retreats decorated in soothing colors and clean lines with easy access to the Spa and Fitness Center. Spa Suite guests receive complimentary access to the Thermal Spa Suites.
