If you’ve cruised with Norwegian, you know the cruise line offers plenty of opportunities to vacation your way. Part of that service comes with even more perks if you sail in The Haven and Suites.

One common feature that almost every cruise ship shares is the ocean view you’ll savor from the top deck. After all, it’s the highest vantage point to take in a 360-degree perspective of nature’s greatest wonders while cruising. But that is where the similarities end and possibilities begin. Because on Norwegian Cruise Line, the top deck has been lavishly appointed and strategically designed to include some of the ship’s favorite features that fully integrate the best activities and entertainment with postcard-worthy scenery.
If you’re like most of us in the workaday world, the reality is that you have a limited amount of vacation days allotted per year. Which is why Norwegian Cruise Line has created the perfect solution: a three-day Bahamas cruise that will satisfy the most intrepid global traveler, as well as a perfect introduction for a novice sailor. You never need to make a ho-hum staycation out of a long weekend off from work again.
