What is Freestyle Cruising?

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) offers a unique twist on cruising, they call it Freestyle Cruising. It’s the most flexible way to cruise.


With freestyle cruising you get to set your own itinerary – or not have one at all. If you’re tired from a day of activities and don’t feel like getting your formal attire on for a formal sit-down dinner at 6 p.m. – then don’t! Formal attire or dining at a set time are not required.

Freestyle cruising allows you to choose from a variety of dining options. If you’d like to show up in shorts, a t-shirt or flip flops for a quick bite to eat at the buffet, you can. However, the formal dining is still available for those who are celebrating a special occasion or for those who just enjoy dressing up. The choice is completely yours, and the time is at your convenience.

Free time

Another benefit to Freestyle Cruising is that everyone has the freedom to plan their own day at their own pace.

You decide how to spend your own time – on and off board. Onboard you can choose to participate in activities or enjoy the full-scale gym and spa, relax on deck or unwind in the hot tub. When the ship docks at a port of call, you can stay onboard or take advantage of wide selection of tours and shore excursions. Regardless of whether you decide to dine upscale or on a lounge chair, or attend a show or catch an in-room movie – the point of freestyle cruising is that you do what you want, when you want to.

  • Just did a cruise on the NCL Pearl. We had reservations every evening and the free style options are nice BUT be prepared to wait if you do not have reservations. I saw this night after night and sometimes the wait was over an hour .
