Norwegian Cruise Line
Among their many innovations, Norwegian Cruise Line is perhaps best known for its innovative Freestyle Cruising concept. Much more than just an advertising slogan, Freestyle Cruising is what sets Norwegian Cruise Line apart from every other cruise line in the industry.
To begin with, when you take a Norwegian cruise vacation, they dont tell you when or where to eat. Instead, you pick the time, you decide who you want to eat with, and you can decide where to eat from a wide variety of onboard restaurants (each with its own special cuisine including Continental, French Gourmet, a 5-star Steakhouse, Mexican, Japanese, Italian and Asian fusion). And, dont expect to find a formal dress code on Norwegian Cruise Line. Its your vacation so, each day, you wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable.
Then theres the stateroom selection. While most cruise lines offer a choice of standard interior, ocean-view and balcony cabins, Norwegian Cruise Line provides a much wider range of accommodations which, on most of their ships includes 5,000 square foot Haven Suite complexes with their own private pool and sundeck. Its like a ship within a ship! Standard accommodations on Norwegian Cruise Line are priced in the low-to-middle range when compared to other cruise lines so, considering everything they offer, Norwegian Cruise Line is definitely one of the best values in the industry.
Like most cruise lines, Norwegian can take you to some pretty fabulous destinations. But, perhaps more than any other company in the industry, Norwegian developed the concept of homeport cruising. So, you dont have to fly to Florida if you live in the Northeast or on the West coast…they have cruises sailing round-trip from several different cities, including New York, Boston, Seattle as well as the industrys only inter-island cruises to all four of Hawaiis most beautiful islands.
With the introduction of the Norwegian Epic in 2010, the Norwegian Breakaway in 2013 and the Getaway in 2014, Norwegian Cruise Line takes Freestyle Cruising to an even greater level. The 4,000+-passenger Norwegian Breakaway & Getaway offer a unique collection of 20 dining rooms and restaurants, incredible nightlife, a multi-slide Aqua park and Vegas-style entertainment featuring world famous shows such as Rock of Ages, Legally Blonde, Second City comedy and Cirque Dreams. So rather than having one big theater where everyone onboard sees the same old song and dance routines, Norwegian Cruise Line lets you choose from a variety of top-notch entertainment options. Thats Freestyle Cruising on Norwegian Cruise Line.
