8 reasons to book a cruise in the Caribbean or Europe

Discover cruising with Norwegian Cruise Line

Dreaming of venturing to new horizons… across the open sea? Set sail in the right direction with Norwegian Cruise Line’s incredible fleet of luxurious ships and incomparable array of destinations. Here are 8 reasons why you should book a cruise to the Caribbean or Europe with Norwegian Cruise line.


Kayak Caribbean

1. Stay on a private island

An island all to yourself? That’s right! Lucky passengers sailing through the Caribbean with Norwegian Cruise Line are treated to exclusive access to a private island in The Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay. Glide past its pristine shores by kayak, lounge on shimmering beaches or fly high while zip-lining above the cay’s dreamy tropical landscape. Don’t miss out on a dip with the wild pigs that swim near its coast! Plus, if staying aboard is more your thing, steal a tad of tranquility lounging by the pool while others are out and about.

2. Soak in all-day Caribbean bliss

Imagine cutting through the clear, calm waters of the Caribbean, surrounded by turquoise sea and azure sky. Soak in the views from the sundeck of one of Norwegian Cruise Line’s luxurious ships, while sipping on a delicious drink of your choice! Observation lounges let you bask in every sunrise and sunset of your journey—live jazz or calypso soundtrack included! Cruising the Caribbean is simply the best way to admire it in all its serene, tropical beauty.

3. More tropical islands, please!

Home to some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes, the Caribbean is defined by the colourful cluster of magnificent islands that populate its waters. So, how do you choose which one to visit? With a cruise, you don’t have to! Many of Norwegian Cruise Line’s itineraries take you to the region’s best beach destinations, from the colourful shores of Curaçao to the natural beauty of Belize’s Harvest Caye.

4. Embark on adventures in paradise

Balance out bliss with a side of adventure! Every stop on your Caribbean cruise allows you to make the most of your destination. Disembark in brilliant Ocho Rios and climb up the legendary limestone steps of Dunn’s Falls, one of Jamaica’s most famous landmarks. Explore the beaches of Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic by horseback. Visit the New World’s oldest Spanish fort, El Morro, during your visit of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The adventures even continue on-board with water slides and go-kart racetracks on select Norwegian Cruise Line ships. Cruising isn’t just about kicking back… unless you want it to be, of course.


Norwegian Cruise Line Europe

5. Sail from Europe’s top cities

All of Norwegian Cruise Line’s itineraries in the Mediterranean or Northern Europe depart from some of the best bucket-list European cities, from Amsterdam to London. Take a few days before sailing off to admire Gaudí’s magnificent architecture in Barcelona, imagine the gladiator battles of yore at Rome’s Colosseum, or discover what hygge (the Danish tradition of staying cozy) is really all about in Copenhagen.

6. Cruise through your bucket list

With the Old World’s wealth of fascinating cities and historic towns, you’d have to plan quite an epic Euro trip to take them all in. Cruises make it easier to explore the very best of the continent and immerse yourself in a variety of different cultures. A lil’ seaside glamour in Cannes topped off with a sunset on Santorini? Pizza in Naples followed up by a historic stroll through Dubrovnik? Romance in Paris and a quick jig in Dublin? You can do it all in a single trip!

Europe cruise

7. Treat yourself to world-class service

There are a few reasons why Norwegian Cruise Line has won the World Travel Award for Europe’s leading cruise line 12 years in a row. Every ship is equipped with luxurious spa services and livened up by spectacular on-board entertainment. Fine dining is available whenever hunger kicks in (no set dining times!) thanks to the Freestyle Cruising option that discards schedules so you can enjoy the cruise at your own pace.

8. Discover new cultures

Drift off the beaten path to experience European landscapes that will simply blow you away. Think the breathtaking fjords of Norway, the rugged scenery of the Scottish Highlands and the Baltic beauty of Estonia. You could even make it to the biggest country in the world! Opt for Northern Europe journeys to fall under Russia’s spell, with its splendidly colourful onion-dome churches, absolutely captivating history and epic landmarks like Saint Petersburg’s immense Hermitage Museum.
