Looking to travel a little further afield the festival season? Why not take in the breathtaking sights of Hawaii from on board Pride of America, the only cruise ship that sails round-trip from Honolulu year-round. With Norwegian’s unique 7-day Hawaii itineraries, you can stay overnight in both Maui and Kauai as well as visiting Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii.

The top five factors which make cruising on Norwegian Cruise a best way to spend family vacation are:

Awesome Accommodation

Experience first-hand why Norwegian Cruise Line won the ‘Best Suites’ award at the Cruise Critic Australia Editors’ Picks Awards for 2017. Each Norwegian Cruise Line ship offers a wide range of spacious staterooms and configurations to suit different family groups, including interior, ocean-view and balcony staterooms. For larger groups there are also mini-suites, multi-room suites and interconnecting staterooms or studio cabins for solo travellers. The Haven by Norwegian is ideal for multi-generational groups looking to travel in style and is available on a range of Norwegian Cruise Line ships.

Award-winning entertainment

From a family fond of mini-golf to dance classes, water slides, race tracks and laser tag, there is no shortage of action on board Norwegian Cruise Line. Renowned for delivering some of the best, award-winning entertainment at sea, guests can choose from famed Broadway productions and musicals, acrobatic and circus shows through to comedy performances.

Delectable Dining

Let your inner foodie out with Norwegian Cruise Line’s renowned ‘freestyle’ dining concept, where guests can eat wherever they want, whenever they want – choosing from up to 27 dining options, including Japanese, Italian, Texas steakhouses and more. Kids under three always eat free, with those aged 4 to 12 able to order from complimentary kids’ menus at specialty dining restaurants – making family meal times delicious and affordable.

A Club for All Ages and Babysitting Services  

An enduring favourite with kids and parents, the on-board Splash Academy is a complimentary program for kids aged from 6 months to 12 years, with children divided into age-based activity groups supervised by trained staff. Teenagers, often the trickiest group to entertain, will love the cool hang out lounge, Entourage, and the option to join other teens to watch a film, shoot hoops high above the sea, play video games, tackle a rock climbing wall, race their mates on multi-level waterslides and dance to the latest tunes under the stars at the White Hot Party.

Parents and Grandparents can take advantage of group babysitting services for those aged 3 to 12, or the specialised ‘nursery at sea’ service for little ones between six months and two-years-old.

Family-friendly Shore Excursions

From an unforgettable family experience such as dog sledding in Alaska, to being immersed in the crisp blue waters of the Isle of Pines in New Caledonia, there are plenty of options to create on-shore memories for the entire family, whatever your Norwegian Cruise Line itinerary. Explore the beauty of Australia and New Zealand on board Norwegian Jewel, with family friendly shore excursions including snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef, wading near the waterfalls of New Zealand’s South Island or visiting The Hobbiton movie set in the North Island. Making it even more enticing to plan your next multi-generational holiday on board Norwegian, book now and take advantage of a range of flexible Free at Sea offers including a free beverage package, specialty dining and more!
