Some love getting dressed up for formal night and sharing a table full of people they don’t know at dinner and others just cringe at the thought. Norwegian was the first cruise line to introduce a more laid back approach to cruising with their Freestyle Cruising concept, where there are no enforced dress codes and no fixed dining times with assigned tables.
Norwegian offers a wide variety of onboard dining options such as French, Italian, Asian, Traditional Steakhouses, Brazilian Steakhouses, celebrity chef inspired restaurants and dinner shows featuring Cirque du Soleil, magicians and musicians that require reservation and an additional fee.
Norwegian is the only cruise line to offer 7-Night Hawaiian Island Cruises round trip from Honolulu.
The first cruise line to introduce Studio Staterooms designed for solo travelers. Solo travelers can connect with each other in the exclusive Studio Lounge and enjoy complimentary, coffee, tea, juices and snacks throughout the day.
Norwegian offers innovative ships with entertainment designed to work for families with children of different ages.
If you are a single cruiser – studio staterooms are just right for you as there are no single supplements resulting in lower fares for those who prefer to sail alone.
Choose Norwegian if doing your own thing is your idea of a real vacation and you want to leave your formal attire at home.
Specialty Restaurants can be pricey. The alternative dining options on the newer ships are very good and include everything from a clam bar on deck to a sushi and regional seafood restaurant. That said, these upgrades will cost you: Meals at Margaritaville, for example, are priced á la carte, and cakes by the Cake Boss are $50.
