Cruising is about so much more than sailing from one beautiful port to another.

Whether you're a first-time cruiser or an experienced traveller, here is some advice that's always a helpful reminder: Try something - anything - new every day of your cruise. Granted, such a suggestion is easy to indulge because you’re likely to explore a different port city every day. However, I find that when it comes to food, we tend to stick to the first onboard dining experience we like, rather than explore our way through Norwegian’s diverse culinary selections
