Your holiday, your rules!

What makes Norwegian Cruise Line stand out from the rest?


One of the great things about travelling with NCL is that there are no set rules, and this rolls over to the dining experiences as well. Want pizza for breakfast? No problem. Oysters for a mid-afternoon snack? On it! Meals are available for you to enjoy whenever you’re in the mood for it and there are no set times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Visit one of the many restaurants (in your most beautiful designer gown or yoga pants, whatever you feel like wearing) or order room service – the choice is yours.


For the solo travellers, make the best of your time on the cruise and book a studio. The rooms are perfect for a wind-down after a long and fun day of activities. Studio rooms have studio lounges for like-minded people. Many reviews have said that NCL are the definite leaders for solo travel with their amazing rooms and facilities which includes the services of the concierge.

Looking for something with a grand view? Book your suite at Haven – an all-inclusive area at the very top of the ship! Haven is all luxury and includes personalised services. There are also private lounges, a spa and restaurants just for its residents.

All cruise ships also have the most wonderful large suites, perfect for a family or a group of friends.ncl-room-accomodation


Nothing sets the NCL in its own league quite like the on-ship entertainment. Every day is a different adventure and you’ll be busy from morning until late in the evening. There are aqua parks and arts and crafts to enjoy, spas and sauna rooms to relax in, movie theatres and casinos to enjoy and lots more. In the evenings you can look forward to award-winning live theatre productions and late-night parties for those looking for a bit of fun.
