Contrary to expectations, Norwegian Cruise Line is based in the USA, so many of the ships call Miami, Seattle, New York and others their home port. Caribbean, the Bahamas, North American and Panama Canal cruises are all on offer from the USA as well as cruises to the Alaskan fjords, which are best seen by sea.

Canada and New England cruises are also available, visiting the historic cities that were the first to greet settlers from Europe, and seeing the stunning coastline. Cruises here are most popular in autumn for the leaf fall season. Transatlantic cruises will take you across the Atlantic to or from the USA.

But it's not all about the Americas, with a range of cruises in Europe as well. The Mediterranean is a year-round favourite, whilst summer sailings to the Norwegian Fjords as well as ports around the Baltics are also on offer. Some of these even sail from the UK.

As of 2018, Norwegian Cruise will offer a premium all inclusive board on all of their cruises. This means that you can see the true cost of your holiday up front. Their holidays are now set to include all meals, soft drinks, selected premium drinks and all tips related to this all inclusive service.

Check whether flights are included, especially if you're heading over to North America, and if they aren't make sure you shop around for the best deal. Some packages might come with free hotel stays at the beginning or end of your cruise, which can be a great way to get more out of your holiday.

If you've got your heart set on a specific itinerary or ship, then it's best to get organised and take advantage of early bird offers, and by early we mean around a year in advance! If you just want to enjoy Norwegian Cruise Line's "Freestyle Cruising" then you can save plenty by waiting until a month or two before sailing.
