About Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Line is the innovator in cruise travel with a 48-year history of breaking the boundaries of traditional cruising, most notably with the introduction of Freestyle Cruising which revolutionized the industry by giving guests more freedom and flexibility. Today, Norwegian invites guests to “Cruise Like a Norwegian” on one of many purpose-built Freestyle Cruising ships, providing guests the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed, resort style cruise vacation on some of the newest and most contemporary ships at sea. Recently, the line was named “Europe’s Leading Cruise Line” for the seventh consecutive year, as well as “Caribbean”s Leading Cruise Line” for the second time and “World’s Leading Large Ship Cruise Line” by the World Travel Awards.

The magic and mystery of Bermuda with its long stretches of pink sand beaches divided by cliffs and coves covets travelers and cruisers from all over the world.

Bermuda is a self governing British Dependent Territory located in the Atlantic, 640 miles off the coast of North Carolina and 1,000 plus miles north of the Caribbean.

The two main cruise ports, St. George’s and the capital of Bermuda, the City of Hamilton are perfect spots for excursions such as watersports, golf, tours, shopping and sightseeing.
