Over 30 years ago, Norwegian Cruise Line introduced the very first Caribbean Cruise. Today, they are a global cruise company and industry innovator that operates a fleet of ships sailing to more than 140 ports around the world. NCL's ships were designed to provide guests with the utmost in comfort, safety and personal enjoyment. All of them are new or recently refurbished and boast a wide range of dining choices, award-winning Broadway shows and an international staff. The Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Cruise Line's newest, largest and most innovative cruise ship ever was introduced in 2010. The ship features exclusives like Blue Man Group appearing at sea for the first time and new studios designed and priced specifically for the solo traveler.
When you sail with Norwegian Cruise Line, you are cruising on the most innovative and accommodating fleet on the high seas. Their award-winning fleet was built for Freestyle, designed to give you freedom and flexibility. With 11 ships in the fleet, you'll have plenty of Freestyle options to choose from.
With NCL and Freestyle Cruising you will travel to unforgettable destinations, aboard spectacular ships. Where in the world would you like to go? Europe? Bermuda? Alaska? The Caribbean? Perhaps you've always wanted to cruise to the bottom of the world? Cruise the Hawaiian Islands? Or revel in the riotous colors of fall foliage along the New England and Canadian coast.
Rediscover the Americas with their Homeland Cruising program and choose from 13 convenient departure ports in the US and Canada. NCL has dozens of destinations in North and Central America as exotic and exciting as any on Earth.
Get more of Hawaii with the new US Flag brand - NCL America. They have developed the largest Hawaii deployment ever for you to enjoy, with two NCL America ships sailing inter-island cruises and two NCL ships sailing Hawaii/Fanning Island itineraries.
Whether it's lazy days and romantic nights or an action-packed week of adventure, there's no better way to have the vacation of your dreams than with Freestyle Cruising and NCL.
Imagine seeing the ocean and beautiful islands from your stateroom's own private balcony, or watching the majestic coastline glide by from an oversized picture window. You can also choose to cruise in the luxury of an Owner's Suite, Penthouse or one of NCL's opulent Garden Villas or Courtyard Villas - the largest suites afloat. You can also enjoy the value of an Inside Stateroom. Whatever you choose, you'll find spacious comfort and superior service are the norm on a Norwegian Cruise Line vacation.
In 2000, Norwegian Cruise Line pioneered the alternative dining concept and in the process, revolutionized the dining experience for the cruise industry. In the decade since, we've expanded our restaurant choices on all ships to include everything from tapas to teppanyaki. Your selection ranges from as many as nine fantastic dining options included in your cruise fare to a savory array of specialty restaurants created for those extra-special nights out.
Kids & Teens
NCL's Kid's Crew is a program of things to do, places to go and kids to meet. Created for junior cruisers ages 2-17, the "Kids Crew" programs offer organized activities, games, parties, and special menus. It's like recess, only longer. You can enjoy a massage while they're on a treasure hunt. Play roulette while they're camping out, or head for the Chocoholic Buffet while they're having a pillow fight at a pajama party.
NCL has teamed up with the #1 entertainment brand for kids to take family cruising to a whole new level. With Nickelodeon exclusively on Norwegian Cruise Line, they are offering one-of-a-kind family activities year-round aboard Norwegian Jewel and Norwegian Epic. It's the ideal vacation where parents relax, kids play and families connect.
A staff of youth counselors from leading universities and organizations carefully supervises every minute your kids spend in Kid's Crew. Prior to coming aboard, they attend a special training course on team and confidence building, communication skills, safety and working with children who have special needs. Together they've come up with an impressive bag of tricks for your kids.
There are circuses, crafts, parades, sports, games, stories and parties, campouts with flashlights and tents, and cooking classes where they can make pizza or pancakes with funny faces. There is T-shirt painting, face painting and poolside root beer floats. Treasure hunts and sand castle competitions on our private island are always great fun. And even shore excursions designed just for families. Of course, they will have plenty of time to spend with you, too. Shoot some hoops at the basketball court. Take them to the magic show. Let Junior beat you at table tennis. (Or maybe try hard not to.)
The well-trained counselors offer an age-appropriate array of fun-filled options so kids can get as much excitement out of the cruise as you do during days at sea. And on NCL, your kids can also learn while they are having fun! With everything from parties and video arcades to stimulating learning sessions, NCL provides so much fun, your kids will have the trip of a lifetime! This fleet-wide program is available year-round and is free of charge.
If you would like someone to watch your kids later than the normal hours of the Kid's Crew Club, NCL also offers group babysitting for ages 2-12. There is a nominal fee for this service, and it is with the Kid's Crew counselors. In addition to our regular sitting hours of 10 pm - 1 am, group sitting is available in port from 9 am - 5 pm. Private babysitting is not available.
Onboard Activities & Entertainment
In May 2000, NCL launched a new cruise era when it announced its successful Freestyle Cruising concept, which offers NCL passengers a more relaxed, resort-style cruise product with complete flexibility and non-intrusive service of the highest standard.
Norwegian Cruise Line ships are destinations themselves, filled from top to bottom with tons of award-winning fun and excitement. Whether it's experiencing Blue Man Group, catching a Broadway show, dancing the night away at our White Hot Party or laughing out loud to the world-famous Second City comedy troupe, the party never stops.

Guests with Special Needs
All of the NCL ships have designated staterooms with wider doorways and bathrooms that will accommodate wheelchairs, and staterooms with lights and under-pillow vibrating alarms for guests with hearing impairments.

Guests who need oxygen or require oxygen therapy are welcome on all NCL ships; however, they must supply their own oxygen. Guests who use wheelchairs must provide their own. NCL maintains a limited number of wheelchairs on their private island, Great Stirrup Cay, that are specially designed for use on sand. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Guests with disabilities must be self-sufficient and should travel with another guest who can provide assistance during the cruise. If you or a family member requires special assistance during your cruise, please do not book your cruise online.

Latitudes is an international cruise club exclusively for past guests of Norwegian Cruise Line. Once you complete your first full-tariff cruise with NCL, you automatically become a member of Latitudes, and an integral part of our close-knit family of loyal return guests.
NCL is committed to their Latitudes members and will continue to show their commitment with exclusive offers, members-only privileges, and many other special touches you deserve.
