Norwegian Cruise Line features a wide range of dining and entertainment options on its contemporary cruise ships.


Of the line’s 19 ships, the largest are in the Breakaway and Breakaway Plus classes, carrying approximately 4,000 passengers.


More than 350 destinations ranging from the Caribbean and Bahamas to Alaska, Bermuda, Asia, Australia, Canada/New England, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico and the Panama Canal. Cruises range between 3 and 14 days, with special voyages up to 24 days. Norwegian has the industry’s only American-flagged passenger ship (2,200 passengers) sailing weekly cruises around the Hawaiian Islands. Ports of call on Caribbean cruises include private-island destinations in the Bahamas and Belize.


A pioneer in freedom and flexibility, Norwegian Cruise Line is known for its Freestyle Cruising tagline. There are no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating, no schedules to follow. The wide variety of dining options has always been a signature feature.


Group amenities include their Free at Sea amenities, $100 per stateroom onboard credit. No deposit under 30 staterooms to block space. One tour conductor credit is awarded for every 10 full-fare, lower-berth passengers.


Norwegian introduced a new class in 2022, the Prima class, with the launching of the 3,100-passenger Norwegian Prima. Sister ship Norwegian Viva, after an August 2023 debut in the Mediterranean, will be christened in Miami in November and then move to its winter Caribbean home in San Juan, Puerto Rico in December. Four additional Prima-class ships will enter service through 2027.


From Cruise Critic, the line won the 2022 Best New Ship of the Year award (for the Norwegian Prima) and for Best Entertainment. In the 2022 World Travel Awards, Norwegian was recognized as the World’s Leading Cruise Line for the sixth year in a row.

The line was awarded for Best Wine Program and Best Adult Alcohol-Free Program at the 2023 Vibe Vista Awards, which distinguishes the top performers in chain and hotel beverage programs.
