Breathtaking Cruises

Norwegian Cruises

When the time comes to take a vacation, it’s a pretty safe bet that a cruise will be among the top picks for how to spend it. What you might not expect, though, is for someone to take a Norwegian cruise - but you might want to re-evaluate that misjudgment, because Norwegian cruises can be fun, fascinating vacations.

Much of the nature of the experience of Norwegian cruises lies in the time you choose to actually vacation. Norway is a northern-European country, and, if you are in the southern hemisphere, the seasons you’re used to will be reversed for the duration of your stay. Additionally, due to the extreme latitudes you’ll be cruising in, winters can be quite severe, so bring appropriate clothes, if you want to show up in the wintertime. Not to belabor the point, but if you should decide to take any one of the Norwegian cruises available to you during the winter, there is one thing you won’t want to miss. That “thing” is the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), which is unlike anything most people have ever seen. Alternatively, you can cruise in summer, and experience 24 hours of daylight!

Let’s face it: Norwegian cruises aren’t just about what you’ll do on the ship! During your trip, your vessel will make port at any one of a number of exciting locations - a traditional European city, a fishing village, and a Viking museum are just a few of the possibilities. That said, you can have a good time without leaving the boat. It would certainly limit your options, but it’s good to know if one of your group gets sick or something, they won’t be left to stare at their stateroom walls. Shows, a variety of restaurants, and a varied selection of social engagements are some of the things your ship will have to offer. If you’re interested in learning more, find your event coordinator!

In the same vein, you might find yourself at a point where you just want to laze about a bit - Norwegian cruises have you covered there, too! The scenery in Norway is nothing short of grandiose, with rugged coastlines, glacial valleys, fjords, and wildlife abounding.... one word of advice: Bring a camera!

One last thing to note before you rush off to book your tickets is the all-inclusive nature of a cruise, including Norwegian cruises. The only thing you’ll need to figure out is your airfare and how much souvenir money to bring! Everything else, including tips, is taken care of.

So, now that you know a little more about Norwegian cruises, it’s time to start packing. Dress warm, take lots of pictures, and have a safe trip!
