What you'll love about

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL)

All cruise lines will tell you they offer great service, all will tell you they travel the world, and all will tell you that cruising with them is like cruising with no other cruise line... but that doesn't help you choose the right cruise line so let us help by outlining here all those features that distinguish one cruise line from another...

So why will you love NCL? What distinguishes NCL from other cruise lines? What moments will I experience that only cruising with NCL will bring? 



In 2017 NCL took the brave and very welcome step to simplify the process of booking with them by including lots of extras as standard in the cruise fare. Welcome to 'Premium All Inclusive'

One of the standout features of any NCL cruise is the quality and variety of entertainment on offer. In particular NCL specialise in putting on fully staged versions of huge Broadway shows. How about Jersey Boys, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, After Midnight, Million Dollar Quartet or Rock of Ages? You can have them!


Want more? There is a whole host of original NCL productions available too then there are comedy clubs, duelling piano bars, deck parties, 'Cirque Dreams' dinners, game shows such as 'Deal or No Deal', nightclubs, and the dance show thats taken the world by storm 'Burn the Floor'. Thats not forgetting all the bands and musicians playing all over the ship in the many restaurants, bars and lounges. Whatever entertainment you're looking for NCL has it...



Reflecting the companies history of challenging cruising traditions a Norwegian Cruise Line cruise follows a 'Feel Free' philosophy - that is 'your cruise your way'!

For example there are no fixed dining times, there are no fixed dining tables. Eat where you want, when you want with who you want! There are no dress codes either (with some caveats, such as the need for men to wear trousers in the main dining room, but there are no formal nights. You'll need to pack your whites for the white hot party of course but apart from that, dress how you feel most comfortable. 

With Norwegian they very much want you to relax & Feel Free



Depending on the ship you've chosen you could find yourself faced with up to 29 dining options to enjoy on your cruise!! This is combined of a mixture of complimentary options, speciality options, dining inside or outside or even dining with a show. No matter what option you choose, whether the cuisine is French, Italian, Brazilian, Chinese or simply a Full Irish in the 24 hour O'Sheehans Bar & Grill you're going to enjoy it as the food (trust us!) is as close to perfection as you'll get! Eat in one of the many fantastic surroundings inside, or dine outside as the sun sets somewhere on The Waterfront, a 1/4 mile promenade full of bars and restaurants. Enjoy beautiful buffets, sizzling steaks at Cagney's, terrific performance at Teppanyaki, poolside grills or succulent Sushi! Quite simply no matter what your favourite food is you're going to find it here....bon appetit! 



Cruising can be difficult if you're a solo cruiser. Staterooms can be in short supply,  you have to book a long time ahead, you typically pay more, sometimes up to 100% more...but if any cruise line works hard to support solo cruisers it's NCL. 

They have a whopping 496 dedicated solo staterooms across the fleet, more than any other cruise line by a long way. These are not just any staterooms, these are specially designed studio staterooms for solo cruisers with lots of little touches to make you feel at home. When you're not in your stateroom you can use the dedicated private solo lounge...have a drink, read the paper, watch TV and meet your fellow solo cruisers. NCL also have a solo cruiser social director who organises get together's, drinks receptions, quizzes, theatre seats and so much more! If you're travelling alone there is no one better to cruise with than NCL!
