ABOUT NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE
Norwegian Cruise Line is the innovator in cruise travel with a 49-year history of breaking the boundaries of traditional cruising, most notably with the introduction of Freestyle Cruising that revolutionised the industry by giving guests freedom and flexibility to design their ideal cruise holiday. Cruising on Norwegians means no fixed dining times, relaxed attire, several distinct dining options, relaxed disembarkation and more lounges, bars, theatres and other entertainment and activity options. Today, Norwegian invites guests to Feel Free to explore the world on one of 14 purpose-built Freestyle Cruising ships, providing guests the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed, resort style cruise holiday on some of the newest and most contemporary ships at sea. Norwegian offers unique and exciting itineraries in all areas of the world, including the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Mexican Riviera, Europe, South America, Canada & New England, Panama Canal, Alaska, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America is the only ship that sails year-round from Honolulu on seven-day intra-island Hawaiian cruises. Recently, the line was named "Europe's Leading Cruise Line" for the eighth consecutive year, as well as "Caribbean's Leading Cruise Line" for the third time and "World's Leading Large Ship Cruise Line" for the fourth year by the World Travel Awards.
WIDE ARRAY OF ACCOMODATIONS
Norwegian offers several accommodations to suit every guest's need. Hidden away at the top of the ship is The Haven by Norwegian, an exclusive enclave with the most luxurious, well-appointed and spacious accommodations. Not only will guests have access to all the ship has to offer, they will enjoy the personal service of a 24-hour butler and concierge throughout their entire stay. Guests can opt to take up temporary residence in Norwegian's serene and rejuvenating Spa Suites, with access to the Mandara Spa and complimentary use of the thermal suites, sauna, hydrotherapy pools, steam room and heated loungers. With ever-changing views from a private balcony, Mini-Suites and Balcony staterooms offer guests a new perspective almost every day, and feature comfy sitting areas, convertible and/or drop-down beds and plenty of storage space. Oceanviews, Insides and Studios let guests relax, embrace their personal space and get back to the action. For guests travelling solo, Norwegian's Studio staterooms are an industry-first, providing solo cruises the most affordable, stylish way to cruise. These award-winning staterooms feature vivid, contemporary décor and mood lighting. Studio guests also have access to their own private Studio Lounge, open morning and night, so studio guests can meet up, make plans for their trip and be social, available on Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Breakaway, Pride of America and Norwegian Getaway.
As the innovator of freedom and flexibility at sea with no set dining times and up to 28 dining options per vessel, Norwegian understands that dining is central to guests' holiday experience, from gourmet meals to superb service. Guests will find more dining options than days of their cruise, and they are free to enjoy them all on their own timetable . Norwegian offers both complimentary and speciality dining options. Included in cruise fares are the beautifully crafted menus from the main dining rooms, plentiful buffets and a variety of casual cafes, grills and on-the-go choices. Dining rooms have open seating and extended hours, allowing guests to dine when they want, where they want and with whom they want. Guests have the option to choose their dinner companions and request tables of any size from two to 10 each evening rather than being assigned to a specific table for the length of the cruise. Guests can also make reservation in the main dining rooms up to 90 days prior to their cruise, if they would like to plan and customise their holiday prior to embarkation.
If guests want an even more memorable dining experience, Norwegian ships offer world of distinctive culinary possibilities at several speciality restaurants that provide refined choices for a small cover charge or à la carte pricing. Norwegian has a signature French restaurant, Le Bistro, where guests can discover Nouveau, Mediterranean and classic cuisine. Every ship in the fleet also features Norwegian's signature steakhouse, Cagney's, where guests can enjoy the finest cuts of Certified Angus Beef, cooked to perfection and served with all the trimmings of a traditional American steakhouse. Moderno Churrascaria is Norwegian's authentic Brazilian steakhouse, where dinner begins with an impressive salad bar, followed by skewers of slow-roasted meats carved tableside by Pasadores. Other cuisine options available on Norwegian ships include Italian cuisine, Teppanyaki, and sushi.
Freestyle Cruising means a huge range of exciting events and activities. Regardless of guests' ages or preferences, all Norwegian ships have something to keep guests entertained, with award-winning entertainment every day and every night. Guests can laugh till they drop with The Second City® comedy troupe or sing along with Howl At The Moon, or clap along with award-winning Broadway productions, from the multiple Tony Award-winning After Midnight to the smash hit Rock of Ages. Norwegian ships also feature acrobatic and aerialist spectaculars, magicians and illusionists, live musicals and themed parties every cruise.
