Find A Cruise

Before you choose.

Welcome to an ocean of options – welcome to Freestyle Cruising. As a First Time Cruiser, you may need a little help deciding which cruise to choose. And that's what we're here for.

WHAT type of cruiser are you?

Are you looking for a relaxing escape to warmer weather? An adrenalin-packed adventure filled with once-in-a-lifetime challenges? How about fascinating history in every harbor, or shopping in every port? Once you narrow down what you’re looking for in your vacation, it’s easier to choose your style of cruise. Let’s find the perfect cruise for you. Call a Norwegian Cruise Line Personal Cruise Consultant at 866-234-7350 or contact your travel professional.

WHERE do you want to cruise?

When you have five continents, 52 countries and more than 100 itineraries from which to choose, where you want to go may just be the toughest decision you’ll ever have to make when you cruise with us. A Personal Cruise Consultant can easily help steer you toward the best cruise for you. Click here to have a Personal Cruise Consultant contact you.

WHEN do you want to cruise?

Timing is everything when it comes to planning a cruise. It pays to plan ahead if you plan on celebrating a special occasion, or cruising during a holiday. And if your heart is set on a certain destination, make sure sailings are available when you want to cruise (for instance, no one cruises to Alaska in the winter). But with Norwegian Cruise Line’s wide variety of itineraries, offered every month of the year, you’re sure to find the perfect vacation for you.

HOW do you want to cruise?

Want to splurge a little or economize? Is it just the two of you or are you bringing the kids? Will it be a big family reunion or are you going on your own? The ships in our fleet offer an amazing range of accommodations, from three-bedroom, three bath Garden Villas with private outdoor terraces to cozy Studios perfect for just one.

And where your stateroom is located on the ship can take into account your personal preferences. The top of the ship features our Suites, Villas and Penthouses. Up here you have access to a private Courtyard on Norwegian Epic and our Jewel Class ships, and close proximity to the pools and sun decks on our other ships. Forward and aft (front and back – see our Cruise Lingo page) staterooms often have larger windows and balconies, offering amazing views. Midship puts you closest to the elevators and the action. On many of our ships we’ve conveniently placed Family Suites near the Kid’s Area. And nearly every category offers connecting staterooms for friends and family who want to enjoy both togetherness and privacy.
