Ways to Pamper Yourself on Board a Cruise with Norwegian

Are you looking for a way to leave behind the stress of your daily life? A cruise holiday offers the ultimate way to relax and unwind. Do you want outstanding service and a choice of inspiring world destinations to explore on your next holiday? Cruising with Norwegian offers all of that and more. On a Norwegian cruise, every staff member goes out of their way to pamper you - from greeting you by name to making your favourite dessert appear right after dinner. 

With Freestyle cruising, the main focus is completely on you. Savor a three-course meal in one of Norwegian's specialty restaurants or grab a hot, juicy burger right off the grill. When you take a Norwegian Cruise to Europe, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, or Asia, it is all about what you want on your vacation. Entertainment, children's programming, and delectable food are all included in the cost of your cruise vacation, so you don't have to worry about anything on your getaway. Simply sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery and exceptional service. 

With Norwegian's Free At Sea, you can pamper yourself with your favorite tropical cocktails, an afternoon at your favorite beach, or a romantic evening at Le Bistro, Norwegian's specialty French restaurant. Do you want even more ways to pamper yourself on board? Here are a few ideas. 

1. Treat Yourself to Specialty Dining

For an extra-special indulgence on your cruise vacation, treat yourself to the perfect meal. Norwegian offers a variety of specialty restaurants from Brazilian to Asian fusion. Plus, with the Take 6 Free promotion, you can eat in the specialty restaurants for free.

Savor a filet mignon cooked to perfection at Cagney's Steakhouse. Make sure you try Cagney's signature Speakeasy Martini, which is a combination of Prosecco, Grand Mariner, Southern Comfort, and apricot brandy. This delicious martini is a delicious complement to all of Cagney's tender, juicy steaks. 

Alternatively, enjoy a sophisticated French meal at Le Bistro. This elegant French bistro serves up nouveau French cuisine. Relax while the friendly staff brings your favorite dishes to your table. Sail on the Breakaway or Breakaway Plus class ships and watch the gentle waves of the ocean roll in as you dine oceanfront. 

2. Renew Your Mind and Body With Yoga

Many of Norwegian Cruise Line's destinations offer wine tastings. A wine tasting can be a memorable way to spend a day in port. Is Florence, Italy, on your cruise itinerary?

Before arriving at the estate, you'll enjoy a peaceful drive through the Tuscan countryside. 

Maybe Santorini, Greece, is on your cruise itinerary. If so, try the Ancient Akrotiri & Wine Tasting excursion. You'll visit Akrotiri, one of the most fascinating archeological sites in Greece. Afterward, you'll stop at one of the area's best wineries for the opportunity to relax in a peaceful, quiet environment while tasting various wines. 

5. Try a Deep Scalp Massage

Norwegian Cruise Line has partnered with Mandara Spa to offer a variety of specialty spa treatments from hot stone massages to exotic and nourishing body wraps. For a real treat, book the Elemis Frangipani Conditioning Hair and Scalp Ritual. Spa therapists use rich Frangipani Monoi Oil from Tahiti to clean and nourish your hair. Afterward, they perform a deep scalp massage, which will absolutely melt away stress. Plus, this treatment is very healthy for your hair. You'll be left with shiny, manageable tresses. 

6. Take a Stroll Along The Waterfront
