Top Features on Norwegian's Newest Ships

Whether you’re new to cruising or a Latitudes Rewards Member, Norwegian’s cruise ships have something for everyone. But if you’ve yet to experience the top features on Norwegian’s newest ships, you’re in for a real treat. Let’s explore some of Norwegian’s newest ships and their amazing and unique features, shall we?

#1. Norwegian Breakaway

If al fresco dining calls to you, be sure to explore The Waterfront on Norwegian Breakaway. Located on deck 8, guests can enjoy everything from gelato to whiskey. With specialty restaurants like Ocean Blue and La Cucina, you will feel extra posh as you sip on your wine and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. If you feel like going for some entertainment after your meal, the Cavern Club has some great live music to enjoy.

Norwegian Breakaway also features Rock of Ages, the award-nominated Broadway musical, along with other shows like Cirque Dreams & Dinner Jungle Fantasy and Burn the Floor. Visit the Aqua Park and Sports Complex if you are feeling adventurous or want to burn off some calories from the delicious dining establishments such as Moderno Churrascaria for steak lovers and Teppanyaki for those who love seeing food cooked right in front of them.

#2. Norwegian Bliss

Norwegian Bliss is the sixteenth ship in the fleet but it’s already making history. With a race track on the top deck, tandem waterslide, and an open-air laser tag course, this ship is far from ordinary. But she’s much more than top-deck adventure. Bliss also offers Broadway-caliber productions like Jersey Boys and ¡Havana!, paying tribute to 1950’s Cuba. Even the spa is a true journey in wellness with its Salt Bath and Snow Room features. If unique vacation experiences are your thing, get ready to imagine Bliss.

#3. Norwegian Getaway

Norwegian Getaway is a fun ship if you crave a different kind of cruising experience. With its onboard carnival, Escape the Big Top, you get to solve a mystery and save the ship. The premise is that a magician puts a curse on everyone who turns up at this carnival, and it’s up to audience members to break that spell and save the ship. Who could ask for a more unique experience at sea than that?

Speaking of the circus, Norwegian Getaway also offers a chance to experience Cirque Dreams and Steam, a surreal journey into eccentricity and illusion that features spectacular gravity-defying acts that change throughout the year, allowing you to experience a new level of grandeur and wonderment each and every time. If singing along at the piano bar is more your idea of entertainment, you can also visit Howl at the Moon in the evening and watch those dueling pianos go at it. There’s never a dull moment on Norwegian’s ships.

#4. Norwegian Encore

Now let’s get excited over Norwegian’s upcoming cruise ship Encore, launching in the fall of 2019. Norwegian Encore will be Norwegian’s most innovative and modern ship, featuring the Observation Lounge, live music, a full-service bar, and delicious dining options.

Guests of The Haven will have access to the Horizon Lounge, where they can relax with a cocktail and appetizers and get a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea. The Observation Lounge will have an indoor setting with floor to ceiling windows so that guests can enjoy a spectacular view while cruising past cityscapes or simply marveling at the beauty of the open ocean.

Of course, there are so many other features to explore on these ships, and even more to explore across the fleet. Norwegian Sky offers Free Open Bar for an all-inclusive experience. Norwegian Escape boasts more than 25 dining experiences and over 21 bars and lounges. And Pride of America continues to be the only cruise ship that sails roundtrip from Honolulu year-round.

The hard part now will be narrowing down which incredible ship you will want to book for your next cruise. One thing is certain, however. No matter which cruise ship you choose for your vacation, you will be guaranteed the adventure of a lifetime.
