5 Reasons - Why Cruising will be a SAFE option as TRAVEL opens up

Experiences define our lives marking the many memories and milestones that are to be cherished forever. Even though the current situation has brought life to a stand-still for most of us, it has also made us realise how important it is to live our lives to the fullest and savour every moment. So, make sure you focus on the best experiences with your loved ones when the world opens up and welcomes travellers. A cruise vacation with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is the perfect getaway to rejuvenate your soul and soak in the beautiful sights that your sore eyes have been missing all this while. With a fleet of 17 ships offering itineraries to over 300 destinations across all seven continents in 2021, family-friendly activities, top-notch entertainment, luxurious accommodations, and exquisite culinary options, your next vacation is easy with NCL.

Here are five reasons why:

1. The perfect family getaway:  NCL has an array of top-class amenities and activities to ensure that neither you nor your children get bored at any point in time. Onboard, not only can you admire the sweeping picturesque views of the sea at leisure, you can also have a blast at the majestic waterparks with exciting rides or spend the entire day frolicking at the swimming pools. At NCL’s Splash Academy (Kids Club), kids can play dodgeball, decorate cupcakes and even enjoy face painting. There are a host of onboard activities for all ages, such as the world's only racetrack at sea and open-air laser tag arenas on board its newest ships – Norwegian Joy, Norwegian Bliss and the recently debuted Norwegian Encore. The Galaxy Pavilion, a dedicated virtual reality and gaming complex, is also available on Norwegian Joy and Norwegian Encore, offering an immersive virtual experience for guests to enjoy.

To ensure your family or group stays close together, NCL has ample accommodation options including family mini-suites, two-bedroom suites with balconies and ocean views, or inside studios and interconnecting staterooms. Another major draw for multi-gen cruisers seeking a first-class cruise experience is ‘The Haven’ by Norwegian - the company’s ship-within-a-ship concept known for its luxurious and spacious accommodations and top-line customer experience. ‘The Haven’ guests can indulge in the unparalleled personal service of a certified 24-hour butler and concierge team who will make all of their arrangements on board and onshore, including priority embarkation and disembarkation. ‘The Haven’ offers the intimacy of smaller vessels without foregoing the variety of activities and amenities enjoyed on larger ships.

2. Award-winning entertainment: The distinct, one-of-a-kind performances on all NCL ships promise an out-of-the-box experience for everyone on board. Some of the best entertainment options aboard the newly launched Norwegian Encore include Tony Award®-winning musical, Kinky Boots, as the headlining show. Additional entertainment includes the highly energetic The Choir of Man; the interactive cocktails and theater show Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical; and guest-favorite The Cavern Club, transporting audiences back to the legendary Liverpool club with live musical performances from a Beatles cover band.
