Hidden Places to Love on Board a Cruise Ship

If you are a creature of habit, chances are that when you sail aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship, you’ll settle into your own unique vacation rhythm within a day or so, discovering your favorite places, or sometimes following the crowd to favorite places onboard.

No doubt the casino, water parks, sports complex, and dining room are the most popular draws, and this all-in-one entertainment is a major appeal of the cruising lifestyle. However, there are also so many hidden delights on board. While they are not necessarily “secrets” they are the kind of special places that offer the perfect escape, as well as a little peace and quiet to enjoy a more intimate experience on board.

When you cruise Norwegian, you are bound to discover your favorite spots and rhythms, but here are some suggestions to include upon your treasure map.

Mandara Spa on Norwegian Escape

Mandara Spa

A hot stone massage or sauna at the Mandara Spa might do just the trick for a quick slip away. But the Spa Thermal Suite is a pure pleasure palace. Chaises longues chauffées, salle de sel thérapeutique isolée et piscines de thalassothérapie sont quelques-uns des traitements proposés pour prendre soin de vous et vous ressourcer.

Baignade au Spice H20 :

Bienvenue dans votre paradis personnel. Vous ne trouverez pas de foule ni d'enfants déchaînés ici. Spice H20 est un lieu de baignade exclusif de Norwegian réservé aux adultes et situé sur le pont supérieur. Détendez-vous sur une grande chaise longue et plongez-vous dans un roman passionnant. Share a cozy moment under a cascading waterfall or soak up the stunning ocean views.

The Haven

Every cruiser craves a secret haven, so Norwegian designed The Haven offering fantasy accommodations for travelers seeking the most intimate and exclusive luxury experience. Votre suite privée comprendra un pont, une piscine et un salon privés, l'accès au restaurant Haven ainsi que des repas privés servis par un maître d'hôtel. Pour votre croisière, vous aurez le choix entre la Villa de 3 chambres avec cour, la Suite du propriétaire avec grand balcon, le Courtyard Penthouse et d'autres options.

Norwegian Epic Balcony Stateroom

For the more moderate-minded, Norwegian also offers cabins with private balconies – the perfect way to renew and recharge throughout the day. Another secret – and sometimes the easiest way to feel as though you have the entire ship to yourself: I like to select just one cruise port day on my cruise to stay on ship. Vous aurez l'impression d'avoir un immense parc d'attractions (presque) pour vous tout seul !

La bibliothèque

Lors d'une nuit de fête à bord du navire, faites cette expérience : sortez du bar ou du casino et rendez-vous à la bibliothèque. Aaaaaaaah ! En quelques minutes à peine, vous aurez instantanément accès à la paix et la tranquillité. Sorry to blow the cover off this favorite hiding spot, but don't worry: The best things about Norwegian cruise ships are the variety of places to explore. Whether you want to dance until dawn or read by starlight, there's always a special place for everyone.

Dining Rooms & Restaurants

With Freestyle Cruising, there are no assigned times or seating arrangements for meals. It’s up to you whether you choose to mingle in the main dining room or savor an intimate dinner in a specialty restaurant.

Le Bistro is the perfect place to commemorate a special occasion. Food is upscale French gourmet served in a sophisticated atmosphere. It’s the perfect blend between the grand formal dress-up nights of the cruises of yesteryear with the laid-back luxury of Norwegian Freestyle cruises of today.

L'Ocean Blue sur le Norwegian Breakaway

But if you are like me, maybe you tend to find your favorite thing on the menu, or your favorite restaurant or activity and passionately stick with it. As tempting as it may be to return to a proven delight, the best part of cruising is the extraordinary range of options to discover a secret pleasure you didn't even know you had.
