Girls just wanna have fun, they say. Well, why not grab your besties and have fun at sea on a girls' cruise?

Whatever the reason for your girls' getaway, Norwegian has you covered with year-round cruises that vary in length from 5-7 days to longer than two weeks. And once you and your friends decide on a time that fits everyone's schedules, here comes the fun part — choosing your ideal cruise!

Ready to start planning? Explore all Norwegian cruise vacations.

Instead of just bar hopping before one of your girls gets married, why not gather the squad for a girls' cruise and enjoy your drinks at sea? Whether your girls are looking for spa time and relaxing pools, delicious dining, exciting entertainment, live music, world-class drinks or all of the above, Norwegian has a little bit of everything for your girls' getaway. And the best part? Norwegian offers balcony, oceanview, and interior solo cruise cabins, so you don't need to share a room to have the girls' trip of your dreams.

Wine tasting in Italy, soaking up the glitzy glamor of the French Riviera, savoring traditional Greek cuisine among the famous blue domes of Santorini, taking in the art at the Louvre or Barcelona's Museo Banksy – if these European destinations sound like the perfect girls' getaway, it's time to make that daydream a reality. From 7-day or longer Mediterranean cruises to adventurous Greek Isles cruises, now is the time to book your girls’ getaway.

Sunsets and waterfalls more your style? A Hawaiian girls cruise might be just the thing! Experience the true "Aloha" spirit with a fire performance and delicious local cuisine at an unforgettable luau during your overnight stay in Maui. Then hike among lush forests, tumbling waterfalls and dramatic seaside cliffs with your girls on the Big Island – or explore the many wonders of Volcano National Park. As the only U.S. flagged cruise ship, Pride of America sails year-round from Honolulu visiting four Islands and five ports in seven days, so you can see more of one of the most beautiful places on earth.

10-Day Greek Isles Cruise: Santorini, Athens & Florence
7-Day Hawaii Cruise: Oahu, Maui & Kauai

Perhaps you're leaning more toward an adventurous girls' trip? There's no better way to experience the great outdoors than in The Last Frontier on one of Norwegian’s Alaska cruises, or fall in love with the enchanting countryside Northern Europe and Iceland during an awe-inspiring Europe cruise. From kayaking along icebergs and the rugged coastline to hiking on a glacier and exploring the dramatic fjords, turn your next girls cruise into the adventure of a lifetime.

Don't have seven days for your girls' getaway? Set sail from Miami on a 3- or 4-day Bahamas cruise to  celebrate your bridal shower or bachelorette in a less traditional way. Unwind together in a private, luxury beachside villa in the exclusive Silver Cove, paddle board around a tranquil lagoon and sip (insert your friend's favorite cocktail) while lounging on an expansive white-sand beach. It saves you from having to clean up any mess made at home and lets you spend more time with the women in your life who have offered you support, love, and sisterhood throughout the years. You won't have to worry about planning fancy meals or coming up with fun activities, as Norwegian will have that covered for you. Just remember, group selfies in floppy sun hats and big sunglasses are a must!
