A vacation free from limitations. That's Freestyle
It's your vacation and you should have the freedom to enjoy on
your terms. Dress up or down. Sleep in or catch a sunrise from your
own private balcony. Take in some never-before-seen entertainment
at sea. Even eat somewhere different every day, on your own
schedule. Whether you're aboard or on shore, you can do as much or
as little as you please. It's all up to you. When you have
thousands of choices, all of them right, that's Freestyle Cruising
only on Norwegian Cruise Line.
Norwegian Cruise Line ships are destinations themselves, filled
from top to bottom with tons of award-winning fun and excitement.
With up to 20 different bars and lounges, you always have plenty of
options. Champagne, piano and cigar bars, blues clubs, dance
clubs, and dinner shows…there is something for
everyone. Catch a Broadway show, dance the night away, or
laugh out loud to the world-famous Second City® comedy show.
Enjoy a Vegas-style casino or play video games on a huge two-story
