With a strap-line under its logo of Freestyle Cruising- it's easy to understand life aboard NCL's fleet of 12 ships. It's turns traditional-style cruising on its head - play when you want, wear what you want and dine when you like. Bright décors are the order of the day both outside and onboard the ship. Families and the young-at-heart will feel right at home on these lively, upbeat, and ultra-casual ships.
Freestyle Dining lets you eat your way around the world in a different restaurant each night. There's no fixed sittings, choose your own time between 5.30pm and 10pm and dine à deux or with a group of friends. 24-hour buffet dining and room service will top you up. Dress up or dress down, the choice is yours.
Spend your days lying by the pool, sliding down the waterslides and up the climbing walls, go for a strike in the bowling alley or relax in the spa. The kids will have a great time too with their own chill out zones. In the evening the ships come alive with Broadway shows, party nights, karaoke and dancing into the early hours.
