With over 40 years of experience, Norwegian Cruise Line knows a thing or two about freestyle cruising and their award winning team can’t wait to greet you on-board to begin your cruise of a lifetime.

Norwegian Cruise Line has been in the business since 1966, at the time offering cruises solely to the Caribbean. Norwegian Cruise Line has since gone from strength to strength and as its popularity grew alongside their range of cruise itineraries and they now stand tall as one of the leading cruise lines in the business. Some of the accolades that they have won over the years include; "Top 5 Big Ship Resort Cruise Lines", "Europe's Leading Cruise Line" and "Top 10 Spas on a Cruise Ship".

Welcome to a world of ‘Freestyle Cruising’

Their "Freestyle" policy ensures that you will experience a cruise unlike any other. "Freestyle cruising" simply means that you are free to do as much or as little as you like - and you can choose exactly when you would like to do it. They don't have specific rules and regulation when it comes to dining, accommodation, entertainment activities or even dress codes, so you are free to enjoy your holiday, your way. This cruise line is perfectly suited for families and couples looking for a relaxing and laid-back holiday.

Family entertainment

When it comes to keeping the kids happy, NCL cruises have got it all covered. Offering an exclusive Nickelodeon entertainment programme, the only thing your children will have to complain about is going back home. Kids can take part in interactive game shows, eat breakfast with SpongeBob SquarePants and sing and dance at Dora's Music Party. Not only will the older kids love the on-board waterpark's slides and tubes, but they will also have access to their own lounge area, where they can take part in Wii and Xbox challenges, team building and sports activities. Norwegian Cruise Line ensures that your children will be supervised by qualified childcare professionals, so you can relax in the knowledge that your children are safe and sound. The entertainment doesn't stop there, as NCL have recently introduced The Blue Men group as part of their world-class line-up, ensuring the perfect entertainment for all the family.

It’s not just for the kids

Whilst the kids are enjoying their Nickelodeon experience, you can make the most of your free time and retreat to the spa for a day of pampering. Immerse in countless rejuvenating treatments, including hot stone massages, aroma seaweed massages, facials, skin therapy, ocean body wraps and acupuncture. Perhaps you would prefer a vigorous work-out in the fitness centre, or even a romantic meal for two in the speciality dining rooms on board? It's all possible on an incredible Norwegian cruise line voyage.


Sticking to their freestyle policy, you will find a host of suites and staterooms on-board your vessel, to ensure that you find the perfect accommodation for you and your family. The private haven, which is perfectly hidden on top of the ship, is a well-appointed suite, perfect for the privileged few. NCL's suites and Penthouses offer spacious living areas, luxury bathrooms and your very own butler. Balcony Staterooms offer incredible views from your own private balcony and Studio rooms are also available to solo travellers.
