For some people, a cruise vacation absolutely must involve beaches, hot sunny weather, and tropical drinks. Others, however, dislike the constant beating of the sun and prefer the relief of cooler climates. If that sounds like you, rest assured that Norwegian has cruises for you, too. Even if you do enjoy warm weather, a colder cruise destination can be a blessing during the heat of summer — especially if you are originally from a hot location yourself.
