Norwegian Cruise Line

Cruise Style: Mainstream

On NCL, you can choose from 14 beautiful ships including their newest additions, Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Pearl. What makes their ships so unique? Freestyle Cruising of course! Dine when you want, where you want and with whom you want. Wear what you want to dinner and how you'll fill your days and nights. Speaking of choice, they have more balconies, more suites and amazing rooftop Garden and Courtyard Villas with access to an exclusive private courtyard and pool deck with three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath and oh yes let's not forget the butler and concierge service. NCL is also the first to have a bowling alley on board. All this means you can pretty much customize your cruise exactly how you want it to be. Ready to go? Let's go find a ship for you!

Special Features 

NCL launched a host of flexible dining choices with the introduction of Freestyle Cruising. Traditionalists may still select between two dining room seating's, but Freestyle allows guests to choose open seating in the main dining rooms or dine in any of a number of a la carte and specialty restaurants at any time and with whom they please. Reservations are required for the specialty restaurants and some carry a cover charge. They offer as many as 13 dining options steakhouse, sushi, teppanyaki , tapas, French, Mediterranean, Italian, Asian Fusion, buffets, and pizza,. Resort casual attire is always appropriate; however, the option of one formal evening is available on all cruises of seven nights and longer. The late-night Chocoholic Buffet continues to be a favorite event.

Mandara Spa offers exotic spa treatments and a wide range of salon services fleetwide on NCL.  

Recommended For

First-time cruisers, active travelers of all ages who want an all-around fun vacation. Joiners. Repeaters and middle-income travelers who like entertainment and recreational variety of a large ship - but not as large as a megaliner. Those whose special interest relate to sports and music, particularly jazz and country. Those who vacation with their children.


Your Shipmates

NCL's mostly-American cruise passengers are active couples ranging from their mid-30's to mid-50's. Many families enjoy cruising on NCL ships during holidays and summer months, particularly on Caribbean and Bermuda itineraries, although Alaska has become a popular family destination. Longer cruises and more exotic itineraries attract passengers in the over-55 age group.

Junior Cruisers 

For children and teens, each NCL vessel offers a program of “Kid's Crew” supervised activities for young cruisers ages 3 through 17. Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Star introduced the fleet's first teen centers. Evening group and private babysitting services are available for a fee. Children under age two cruise free with their parents. Drawbacks for families are the smallish standard cabins that are lacking in adequate storage and the absence of self-service laundry facilities.
