Since 1966, Norwegian Cruise Line has served as the industry leader for innovation, most notably with the introduction of Freestyle Cruising®, which revolutionized the industry by giving guests more freedom and flexibility. Hallmarks of Norwegian’s Freestyle Cruising model include up to 29 dining options (ranging from complimentary to specialty restaurants), “resort casual” attire each night of the cruise, simplified tipping and a more leisurely disembarkation procedure.
Today, Norwegian invites guests to experience 13 purpose-built Freestyle Cruising ships, providing them with the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed, resort-style cruise vacation on some of the newest and most contemporary ships at sea.
Norwegian is known for its signature Freestyle Cruising. Challenging the conventional model of cruising, this on-board program is designed to meet the changing needs of today’s cruise passengers. It offers Norwegian passengers a more relaxed, resort-style cruise product with complete flexibility and non-intrusive service of the highest standard. Hallmarks of the innovative on-board program include up to 20 places to eat (from casual to elegant), open seating and extended hours in the main restaurants, “resort-casual” attire each night, simplified tipping procedures, and a more leisurely disembarkation procedure.
In the summer of 2010, Norwegian Epic joined the fleet, expanding the concept of Freestyle to include entertainment, with headline acts such as Blue Man Group.
