Norwegian tries to accommodate a number of different guests on each and every cruise. They have options for single guests, couples, and families traveling together. Cruises are available from one night to 48 days and offered year round.
All meals are included in the price of the cruise except for meals purchased at specialty restaurants. Reservations can be made up to three months prior to departure. Even with a reservation, expect waiting times upon arrival at the restaurant. You can expect to find all types of cuisine onboard the ship. Computerized screens throughout public areas tell guests how busy a restaurant is and if there is any available seating. Other amenities included on all cruise ships include:
Norwegian Cruise Lines also takes the safety of their guests seriously. They have implemented a number of precautions to make sure that both their staff and the travelers are not exposed to anything that could threaten their health. These precautions include:
There are a number of accommodations to choose from. Garden Villas provide panoramic views of the ocean, roof terraces and private Japanese-styled gardens. Owner's Suites come equipped with queen-sized beds, living rooms, whirlpool tubs and walk-in closets. Penthouse Suites, Ocean View Staterooms, and Inside Staterooms are also available. Rooms come equipped with all the standard amenities to provide a comfortable and enjoyable experience while onboard.
Norwegian's specialty restaurants charge a $15 to $99 per person cover fee apart from the cost of the meals. Expect to stand in long lines for all activities onboard including dining options. Announcements are frequent and loud.
Accommodations in standard cabins are a bit smaller than other cruise lines. Since Norwegian ships can accommodate a large number of guests, expect large crowds. If this is a problem for you, you can choose to upgrade to a first-class section where it is more spacious to get around.
Offshore excursions are not included in the price. Be prepared to pay lots of extra charges for dining options, beverages, and some of the activities during the length of your cruise.
had such a good experience with this cruise line! they keep their passengers in comfort and treat em well.
I went on my very first cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line and let me tell you it will not be my last! Great food, great entertainment and comfortable staterooms. My family loved had so much fun and made endless memories! Will be cruising with NCL again soon!
The Norwegian in my experience is best for customers looking to get away and relax. It is more family-friendly and also very calm. There is not much night life so its mostly about enjoying the cruise in itself.
Affordable and good for short cruise trips. It covers all the basis and the service is always amazing
My first time every being on a cruise was with Norwegian and it was best first experience ever ! They set the bar really high, the staff were amazing and they even had a teen corner where you could hang with other young people and play video games. Their private beach was GORGEOUS.
Norwegian Cruise line is something I would recommend to all my friends and family due to the wonderful excursions that they give us.
Good cruise line. The cruise I was on felt a bit outdated. It was a really great price and everything was good for the price!
I went one a Mediterranean cruise and honestly it's one of the best trips of my life. The food was great and the crew was fun and friendly. I loved it all. AND I DON'T EVEN LIKE BOATS!

I went on a Norwegian Cruise once and it was amazing! I went for a friend's birthday celebration. The prices were affordable, the food was delicious, and their service was outstanding. I highly recommend!
Overall this cruise line has been the best I've ever been in. Their staff is extremely polite and generous and many of the ships has such a diverse array of activities, food, and events that you will never get board. Their quality, especially the food, is top notch and rivals all other cruise line I've been on.
Took this cruise on a 7 day trip around Mexico and Honduras. It was very nice and there were not many lines. My only complain was the lack of activities to do within the cruise.
I've only been on one cruise with Norwegian and it was awesome! They are a little more pricey than perhaps the Royal Caribbean. But they went to Alaska and my cruise is amazing
We had such a fun time on our cruise and the food alone paid for the trip, it was so good! Waffles were my favorite!
Love it! Great food, entertainment and staff. Have sailed with them a few times and has been a great experience.
Went on one cruise in 2004 and it was a small ship. The onboard activities were sparse and unless you liked to gamble, it was basically lounging night.
Really fun amenities and unique locations. However, the customer service is not very good. There were mix ups with the rooms and long lines to wait in.
We had a fun time on the cruise and especially enjoyed the private island in the Caribbean. We were disappointed and how cold the pool was and the hot tubs were too crowded. The daily fee for soda seemed too high and we felt like the mandatory fee for gratuities should have been explained better before we booked. We would still go on a Norwegian Cruise, but would be more careful when we made our reservation.
We recently returned from a cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line. The ship was well taken care of, the food was great. The only thing we didn't love was that it took over 2 hours in the formal dining room to be served our complete meal.
Nowadays it’s hard to differentiate between cruise lines in the room they’re worth value wise Norwegian is one of those great cruise lines always hear about I went when I was younger if you years ago and couldn’t recommend experience more great price for an entry-level person trying to go on a cruise and fantastic stops along the way.
This cruise line has the BEST service, we liked the footloose show, and the food was amazing. The cruise line does a great job at keeping things clean. We did the Mexican Rivera cruise last month.
I just finished booking a cruise with Norwegian; the booking process was very easy and smooth. Customer service was great to call and let me know what options I had for dates/rooms/etc.
Absolutely loved our Norwegian cruise. The ship was impecable, the entertainment was so fun, and the activities leader was so engaging. Will cruise with them time and time again.
Alaska Cruise in the Pearl. Great food, service and rooms. Thermal Spa is well worth the cost!!
Great cruiseline! I LOVE that the dress code is casual! I met some great people and enjoyed the shows. Of course the food was fantastic!
Norwegian is a good Cruise Line. I would put them middle of the road as far as cruises. Not the worst food and not the best. They do have a wonderful staff and a very clean ship!
I love Norwegian so much! They made my cruise wonderful. Great staff, so helpful and accommodating. I would use them again and again.
My husband and I have been cruising with NCL for over 10 years! We love the staff, food, ships, and ports of call! These ships aren’t too big, they are just right!
The family is excited about the cruise with NCL that we have booked. The customer service is very good and they are very helpful. They are knowledgeable and give advice on ways to make the vacation great.
We just took a 16 day cruise through the Panama Canal. The ship was beautiful. The food was excellent. Entertainment was very enjoyable.
We prefer NCL over another similarly priced cruise line. They seem more upscale while still having very competitive pricing. We love the easy check in and out. We definitely recommend NCL!
We took a Norwegian cruise with my wife in Europe and loved it. It was a great time all around. The food was really good and all the service staff was great. The stops were great and they offered us a few really good options at the stops for sight seeing.
Love the river cruises. Had an awesome suit with a balcony for the two of us. Small and intimate.
Went on there cruise line when i was 24.i had some much fun.what a awsome vaction.your room was always clean. Always food.always something to do
Last December we made our first experience, five nights from Miami to Bahamas. Very good!!, all the great!!!, very good attention to, the good food, even my wife needed special treatment for allergies and never failing the food! is highly recommended!!!!
My experience on the norwegian cruise like was a very excellent one. The food was amazing and the service was great.
Our very first cruise was with NCL many many years ago. We had a most fantastic time and look forward to one day cruising NCL again! The staff was amazing and took care of all our needs! Super friendly and caring!
Overall experience was wonderful. The staff was attentive but not extremely friendly. Enjoyed the dining experience.
Great memories and loads of fun. We had our entire family on this cruise ship. Everyone had a blast. We are already planning our next one.
The Norwegian Cruise line ships are absolutely stunning. The amenities are unbelievable, and I didn't feel like I was even on a ship some of the time. It was nothing like I expected, and I'm grateful for that.
A lower end cruise line known for larger ships, typical ports of call, and lower pricing

We've cruised a lot. Norwegian is good but don't like the open dining option. At the end of a fun day, I like going to a predictable time and that way I can plan the evening
We've cruised with NCL twice. We've enjoyed both experiences. The food choices were good. They kids club was clean and offered awesome activities for the kids. We enjoyed the ship as well as the destinations. The staff was pleasant.
Just got back from my cruise on the Norwegian getaway. The entertainment, service, food, islands that we visited. Everything was greater than I ever could of imagined. Also received the drink package at no additional cost. Amazing!
Excellent experiences and great trips and excursions.
The Norwegian Cruise Line is no doubt the best cruise I have ever been on. I had the most fun of my life and I shared the fun with some friends and family who accompanied me.
