Norwegian Cruises Fun Things to Do

Norwegian Cruises freestyle cruising is different from anything else on water. With Freestyle Cruising, you’ll discover something you won’t find on other cruise lines - freedom. An NCL Freestyle Vacation cruise offers diverse and exciting restaurants, a more relaxed dress code and more things to see and do. And that’s just the beginning. We’ve designed the entire cruise experience around giving you the option to choose. It’s proven to be very popular with our guests, and it’s only available with NCL Norwegian Cruises.

NCL's organized shore excursion program offers you the opportunity to sample the colorful culture and see the most dramatic scenery in each port of call. Prearranged sightseeing saves valuable time in port and ensures the best services available. Whether you're exploring on your own or participating in a pre-planned tour, Norwegian Cruise Line wishes you pleasant and memorable adventures ashore.
