Norwegian Cruise Lines offers a wide variety of itineraries, shore excursions and ships to choose from.
NCL have designed unique itineraries and are designing
and building new ships. The new
Norwegian Epic was commissioned in France. She set sail
on her inaugural cruise in May of 2010.
This contemporary ship is the largest in the fleet at 153,000 gross tons with 19 decks, more balcony cabins and carries 4,200 passengers.
It is the most innovative in freestyle cruising to date. The Breakaway is the first of 2 new ships for Norwegian Cruise Lines. The Breakaway will launch in April of 2013. The Getaway will launch in April of 2014. They are looking to combine the best of the Jewel Class ships with the Norwegian Epic. These new ships will be about 150,000 tons and feature a Haven complex for suite passengers.

NCL Cruise Line Ships are the youngest fleet on the planet. All the ships have been designed with the freestyle cruising concept.
You can choose to live it up in a Courtyard Suite, Owners Suite or Garden Villa Suite. Or you can choose a more modest balcony or inside cabin. NCL takes freestyle all the way to the cabin you can choose.
The ship layouts are easy to get around and the signs are plentiful. You can even choose a ship based on size if you like.
You can choose a smaller ship like the Majesty or the largest NCL ship on the water the Epic. Or the next largest ship size (our favorite) like the Gem or the Jewel.
