|The Norwegian Difference
It’s no surprise that AOL Travel recently voted us “Best All Around Cruise,” because our goal is to make sure each of our guests has the vacation they want. And when it comes to our first-time cruisers, we are especially committed to giving you a great vacation, and then some.
In our world, that translates into the freedom to dress up or down. To catch a sunrise from your own private balcony or sleep in. To take in some never-before-seen-at-sea entertainment. And to eat in a different restaurant every day of your cruise, on your own schedule. Whether it’s exhilaration or relaxation you’re looking for, we’ve got it all. When you have thousands of choices, all of them right, that’s Freestyle Cruising. Only on Norwegian Cruise Line. And you’ll see it makes all the difference in the world.
Freestyle Dining—it’s how Freestyle Cruising began. With no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating, you’ll have more freedom throughout your entire cruise vacation. With so many different places to eat on board, you can experience all kinds of dining options – perhaps a different one every day.
Included in your cruise fare are two main dining rooms with tempting menu selections, a self-service buffet with made-to-order favorites and a variety of casual cafes, grills and on-the-go choices. From fresh-baked breads, desserts and pastries to our Chef ’s original dishes made with the freshest ingredients, everything is created to satisfy and delight.
In addition to all of the complimentary dining options available, Norwegian also pioneered the concept of specialty restaurants. For a cover charge, you can experience a world of different cuisines and atmosphere – from the finest French Bistro at sea to casual authentic Italian dishes served in a Trattoria-style setting to the first at sea Brazilian Churascaria. Perhaps you’d enjoy more traditional dining at our signature steakhouse, or, if the mood strikes, watch our Hibachi chefs prepare delicious entrées tableside at teppanyaki. When your vacation isn’t interrupted by a dinner bell, that’s Freestyle Cruising.
Freestyle Fun & Entertainment
If you’ve never cruised before, just think about what your idea is of a good time on land. Chances are we offer it and then some. How about pools with water slides, the only bowling alleys at sea, Wii on two-story screens, sport courts, wine tastings, modern fitness centers with the latest classes and equipment, a relaxing body treatment at our first-class spas, fun kid’s and teen’s programs and a full-action casino?
Now, add in world-class, live entertainment like Blue Man Group – offered exclusively at sea aboard Norwegian Epic. And improv from The Second City® on every ship. NickelodeonTM for kids. And blues, jazz, pop and Broadway shows. It’s no wonder that Rachel Ray selected our Hawai‘i itinerary as “Our Best Pick for the Anti-Cruiser.” All this and more awaits you when you’re Freestyle Cruising.
Norwegian Cruise Line has broken the mold when it comes to accommodations – we’ve created the most diverse collection of staterooms and suites at sea: Spacious Balcony Staterooms; family friendly connecting staterooms, cozy and economical Inside Staterooms and our unique innovation, Studios specifically designed and priced for solo travelers. Also available are 6,000 square feet 3-bedroom Garden Villas for family and friends to share; romantic Suites for two; exclusive open air Courtyards reserved for our Suites and Villas guests with private pools, lounges, gyms, steamrooms, and even private restaurants.
