18. NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE

NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE or NCL has been a cruise operator since 1966 and has a history of being used by many British cruisers who enjoy a more relaxed approached to cruising and want to party harder. On most occasions smart jeans are allowed in restaurant with a collared shirt for men and a smart top for women. There may be more smoking areas. They win awards for their party, disco and adult beach evening entertainment areas. The larger ships are entertainment plus with aqua parks. It is an American-Bermudian company based in Miami-Dade County, Florida. We have included them and they can be booked via our links to Thomas Cook. The knowledge base of their ships comes from you the user, so please join the community and share.

Click here to join the NCL community and chat. Please share your pictures and knowledge, and if you have a question, ask, someone somewhere will know the answer.
