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. Beheizte Liegen, eine abgelegene therapeutische Salzgrotte und Hydrotherapie-Pools sind nur einige der Angebote für vollendete innere Entspannung und Ruhe.

Schwimmen im Spice H20:

Willkommen in Ihrem persönlichen Paradies. Hier gibt es keine verrückten Menschenmengen und wildgewordenen Kinder. Spice H20 ist das nur für Erwachsene zugängliche Schwimmbad von Norwegian, das sich auf dem Oberdeck befindet. Machen Sie es sich auf einer Liege gemütlich und genießen Sie ein pikantes Buch. 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. Ihre private Suite umfasst Deck, Pool und Lounge in abgeschiedener Lage, Zugang zum The Haven Restaurant sowie privates Dining, das Ihnen vom stets einsatzbereiten Butler serviert wird. Für Ihre Kreuzfahrt können Sie zwischen einer Garden Villa mit 3 Schlafzimmern, einer Owner's Suite mit großem Balkon, einem Courtyard Penthouse und mehreren anderen Optionen wählen.

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. Sie können so herausfinden, wie es ist, einen riesigen Vergnügungspark (fast!) für sich allein zu haben!

Die Bibliothek

An einem lebhaften Abend an Bord sollten Sie einmal das folgende Experiment machen: Schleichen Sie sich aus der Bar oder dem Kasino und verdrücken Sie sich in die Bibliothek. Wunderbar! In nur fünf Minuten wird Sie ein herrliches Gefühl von Frieden und Stille überkommen. 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.

Ocean Blue auf der 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.
