Freestyle Cruising on Norwegian Offers a Unique Twist

Freestyle Cruising on Norwegian Offers a Unique Twist

Norwegian Cruise Line offers a unique twist on cruising. They call it Freestyle Cruising, and it allows guests a flexible way to cruise and dine on the ship.

Happy Traveler Comment
Thanks [Glynna] for this "gracious" walk through. What a wonderful customer service style you have. Much appreciated. Indeed I expect to enjoy this cruise. Will be hard to get off at the end of 16 glorious days. — Lynette K.

No Dress Code

One of the first things anyone says about NCL is that there is no dress code. In reality, that is true. Unlike most other cruise lines, they do not have formal, semi-formal, informal or casual nights. Instead, they encourage their guests to wear what they are comfortable in, yet still “nice”. While a lot of people think this means that everyone will be dressed down in shorts or ripped jeans, however, this could not be further from the truth.

Norwegian recommends guests “dress to impress”, meaning that rather than everyone walking around in a tux and feeling slightly uncomfortable, they should dress like they are going to a nice, yet relaxed restaurant.


With freestyle cruising you get to set your own dining time- 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! One of the common misconceptions is that this might tend to be a bit chaotic, when in fact, this leads to a much more relaxed atmosphere on the ship.

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. Or, choose from the main dining room, or a specialty restaurant. Rather than several hundred people turning up at the main dining room all at once needing to be seated and served at the same time, it is more spread out.  The choice is completely yours, and the time is at your convenience. Another bonus to having many restaurants and a relaxed dining time is that you’re also much more likely to get a table for two, if that’s what you’re looking for.

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.
