The history. Norwegian was first established in 1966 – by a shipping company in Norway – when they launched a new concept with regularly cruises of informal luxury from Miami to the Caribbean. The cruise industry was changed forever.

The cruise ship “Norwegian Epic” was launched in 2010, revolutionizing the cruising industry with several first at sea including the first true Ice Bar at sea. “Norwegian Breakaway” launched in April 2013 took innovation to new heights, being the first destination-themed ship, bringing the Big Apple to life and reconnected cruisers with the ocean. The sister ship “Norwegian Getaway” entered into service in January.

The two new ships designed for 4,200 passengers will be delivered in 2015 and 2017. The names of the two ships, “Norwegian Escape” and “Norwegian Bliss”, were determined by Facebook fans around the globe.

Freestyle Cruising. This is all about giving guests the freedom. Norwegian has 13 modern ships that can take guests to places they’ve always wanted to go – like Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, Bermuda, the Caribbean or the Bahamas.

It’s no fixed dining times, but up to 29 dining options and meals cooked to order.

Every ship has accommodation from inside rooms to ocean view, from mini suites to the luxurious private suites complex “The Haven by Norwegian”.

Entertainments are brought to a whole new level with world-class acts, musical revues and comedy cabaret – and ultra-chic nightclub or choose from 22 bars and lounges.

Cruise like a Norwegian. Cruising like a “Norwegian” is for those who live life to the fullest. New life at Sea means you can dine like a Parisian, party like a Brazilian and love like a Venetian.
