There's no better way to cruise Europe and beyond than aboard NCL. That's because you'll enjoy the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Cruising on and off your ship. Do what you want to do on your own schedule, not ours. Forget about everything except having fun, because NCL has more excitement, flexibility, entertainment, superb dining choices, spacious accommodations and once-in-a-lifetime adventures than you can imagine.
No set dining times, no assigned tables, a relaxed dress code and more restaurants than days in the week on every ship, so you can enjoy whatever you're hungry for, whenever you're hungry.
Sit down to a four-course meal and a fine wine. Or grab a burger hot off the grill. Dress up. Dress down. Sit with your friends or make new ones. You'll find more dining options than days of your cruise, and you're free to enjoy them all on your own schedule.

They will enjoy plunging waterslides, a two-story Wii Wall and special recreational programs that include supervision. So, you can enjoy time at the spa, a tour on shore, gaming in the casino, a romantic dinner for two or experience the personalized service, private tranquility and indulgent extras of The Haven.
