The Norwegian Cruise Lines or NCL are a relatively new addition to the current lineup of cruise line operators and they are quickly making their name as a popular operator for visiting Northern Europe by ship.

In general most cruise lines operate in a fairly similar manner, with standard guest facilities and features offered. Norwegian cruise lines however, pride themselves on offering something a little bit different.

They offer something which they have imaginatively titled “Freestyle Cruising”. In their own words, “Freestyle cruising is all about flexibility and freedom. Freedom from stress. Freedom from schedules. Freedom to create your own vacation”.

This freedom means they offer the ability to design your cruise exactly they way that you want. For example, each ship at NCL has up to 13 restaurants and dining rooms on board which means that you choose to eat whatever you want, there are no fixed meals so you can choose to dress and dine in whatever fashion best suites you.

With one of the youngest fleet of ships on the planet they will provide a cool, innovative and hippest vacation on water  and as far as accommodation goes, they  also have a variety of combinations so no matter whether there are 2, or an entire family holiday, they have staterooms to suit all requirements.

Norwegian cruise lines boast to have, due to their Freestyle Fun, lots of things to do in the evenings with exciting nightlife as well as plenty of fun family shore excursions with pretty much something for everyone. In fact there are so many things that you can do both on bard the ships as well as on shore that you will be guaranteed to never be bored on a NCL Cruise.

As far as the ships go, we already seen that they are the youngest fleet on the planet, which means that they are fitted with all the mod cons that you would expect on a top of the cruise ship. In fact they could be described as luxury floating hotels with an atmosphere that is suited to both young and old.

Norwegian cruise lines really do have so much to offer including a relaxing pool deck experience also they entirely cater for the family market, they run expanded kids crew hours which means parents can stay out and about longer and later in the evening with worrying about the children, each ship also has Wii video games available on every freestyle ships.
