Norwegian Family Cruises

Though it was created with all passengers in mind, Norwegian's signature "Freestyle Cruising®" concept - a.k.a. "the freedom to dine, dress, and play as you please while at sea" - is especially well suited for families. And the same holds true for their cruise ships: Norwegian has rolled out an enormous number of family-friendly features in recent years including a fully revamped youth program, interactive offerings via their exclusive partnership with the popular Nickelodeon® channel (select ships), live entertainment from Blue Man Group, Cirque Dreams®, and The Second City® comedy troupe (select ships), Nintendo WiiTM games that can be played on massive two-story screens, and lots more.

There are three important factors (beyond budget, destination, and travel dates) for families to evaluate when considering a Norwegian cruise: activities designed expressly for children, options reserved exclusively for adults, and mealtimes for the whole crew. Below, you'll find an overview of all three.

Norwegian Family Cruises








    NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE: KIDS' PROGRAMS / YOUTH ACTIVITIES

    Splash Academy
  • Activities and workshops specifically designed for kids in four distinct age groupings: 6 mo. - 2 yrs. ("Guppies;" at least one parent must attend with the child), 3 - 5 yrs. ("Turtles"), 6 - 9 yrs. ("Seals"), and 10 - 12 yrs. ("Dolphins")
  • Includes the Kids' Center (featuring age-appropriate WiiTM games and a surround-sound cinema) and Cirque du Jour, presented by Hilario Productions (a circus curriculum that culminates in a family performance)
  • Group-sitting services for guests between the ages of 3 and 12, available whenever your ship is in port ("Port Play") and each evening ("Late-Night Fun Zone") between the hours of 10:30 PM and 1:30 AM (a small fee will apply)
    Entourage
  • Activities for guests ages 13 - 17, supervised by Norwegian Cruise Line's Youth Counselors; all Youth Counselors have at least two year of experience in education, recreation, or a related field
  • Includes a dedicated Teen Center (lounge) stocked with flat-screen televisions, PlayStation® 3, pinball machines, a dance floor with video jukebox, vending machines, and more
  • Over 20 interactive sporting activities (including basketball, ultimate Frisbee®, and rounders) developed in conjunction with King's Camps, plus themed events and evening pool parties
    NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE: ADULTS-ONLY OFFERINGS
  • POSH Beach Club, exclusively available to adult guests staying in Villa accommodations aboard select ships; lounge poolside in private cabanas during the day, then enjoy the club's sizzling party atmosphere come nightfall
  • Spice H2O, peaceful retreat by day and an Ibiza-inspired hotspot after dark; situated at the aft of select ships, it features a pool floor that rises to become a dance floor and a giant screen projecting visuals under the night sky
  • Bliss Ultra Lounge, now famous for its industry-first (and mood-lit) bowling alley, is open to all guests during the day but converts to an adults-only venue (21+) after 9:00 PM; includes a dance floor, bar, and billiards (select ships)
  • Pub Crawls & Beer/Wine Tastings (21+): mingle with fellow passengers and play some drinking games, or sample a variety of flavors in onboard tasting classes while Norwegian's experts explain the ins and outs of each beverage
    NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE: DINING OPTIONS
  • Casual dining, fine dining, and 24-hour room service aboard all vessels; complimentary kids' menus, featuring all of the familiar favorites, are available throughout each ship
  • "Freestyle Dining" means no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating; every ship features up to three complimentary main dining rooms serving fresh, delicious cuisine
  • More specialty restaurants than any other cruise line (Norwegian pioneered the concept), children ages 3 and younger always eat for free in these venues; children ages 4 and up can order from a complimentary kids' menu or a half-priced specialty menu
Our experts would be happy to answer any questions you might have about Norwegian cruises for families, and they're standing by to help you select the Norwegian ship and sailing that best fits your family's needs.
