A Norwegian Cruise is good for any and everyone.

Thanks to their Freestyle Experiences, a Norwegian Cruise Line getaway is truly customizable to your personal preferences and travel style.

Whether you prefer to pack your travel itinerary to the brim with activities and off-shore excursions, or you are seeking a more mellow time at sea, they offer guests a customizable stay to accommodate all guests and budgets.

When is the Best time to take a Norwegian Cruise?

With 19 world-class ships sailing to 400+ destinations across 7 continents, there is virtually no bad time to take a Norwegian Cruise.

Instead, we’d ask, when is the best time for YOU to take a cruise? Here are some things to consider before booking a Norwegian Cruise in 2024:

  • What destination do you want to visit?
  • What ship do you want to travel on?
  • Who are you traveling with?
  • How long do you want to cruise for?

Answering these 4 simple questions will help narrow down the options available to you and help guide you to the cruise that best matches your needs.

Norwegian Cruise Line Rooms & Suites

Single traveler or family of 5, Norwegian Cruise Line will be sure to have a stay to meet your preference and budget.

Offering studios for single travelers, the largest suites at sea, and more luxurious options like the Haven by Norwegian, you’ll be able to design a stay to your liking.

If your perfect getaway means a balcony overlooking the wide open water for the kiddos to enjoy from the comfort of your room, Norwegian’s got it covered. Maybe you’d prefer a solo studio to retreat to while on a group trip with friends. Or, if you’re celebrating a 5-year anniversary and want to treat your partner to a bit of grandeur while away, bask in the elegance and intimacy that The Haven offers couples.

That is the beauty of the Norwegian Experience.

1. Norwegian Prima

Voted the Best Family Experience by Travel Weekly, there are endless amounts of family fun to be had onboard with NCL. One of their newest ships, Norwegian Prima would make for a sweet break away from the everyday for your loved ones on a family vacation or reunion.

While most Norwegian ships provide youth programs for all ages, the fun onboard Norwegian Prima may best be enjoyed by older kids who can partake in a bit more of the entertainment available. To name a few of the activities, options include:

Prima Speedway: The world’s first ever 3-level race track at sea! Spend a few hours (or a full day) zooming around the speedway to see who’s the speed racer of your crew.

Tee Time: A low-impact activity, fun for all or just the kids, enjoy a couple of rounds of mini golf at the first interactive and immersive mini golf on the wide open ocean!

The Bull’s Eye: Hang out in a comfortable and rustic space suited for all to participate in some rounds of darts.

The Drop & The Rush: Not just one, but two waterslides starting at deck 18 and cascading 10 stories below. Take turns racing to see who makes their way to the bottom fastest!

Pro-Tip: 3rd & 4th guests travel free or at discounted rates to select Norwegian Prima destinations! Prices may vary and are subject to change.

2. Norwegian Spirit

When it comes to romance onboard Norwegian Cruise Line, couples can expect nothing short of bliss when celebrating their “I dos” onboard any NCL ship. But, Norwegian Spirit is specifically designed with adult cruisers in mind. It is one of the smaller ships of the NCL fleet, and while children are welcome aboard, it does not offer dedicated areas for kids onboard.

With specialty dining options like Onda, their premier Italian restaurant, a Teppanyaki experience, and Humidor Cigar Lounge it’s perfect for couples looking for an intimate and elevated getaway at sea.

Enjoy entertainment onboard Norwegian Spirit ranging from the Elements dance and music show to the social comedy club for nights full of laughter and fun. Slip away for a moment to retreat and relax at the Mandara Spa, where they offer a variety of spa services ranging from couples massages to cleansing salt scrubs and so much more.
