In a new partnership with acclaimed technology-solutions leader DeCurtis Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Line presents Cruise Freedom — an online platform allowing passengers an elevated online experience from booking through their trip.


Just after the debut of the improved Cruise Norwegian app and all new vessel Norwegian Bliss, these technological advances aim to modernize the cruise line’s fleet and curate an innovative and tech-savvy reputation.


The new tech and connectivity platform is still in the initial phase and has a way to go before being unveiled to travelers, so keep an eye out for the new platform while booking. In the meantime, family packages and kid’s programs onboard Norwegian Cruise Line vessels this summer offer a unique way to get away, discover, play and learn as a family. Get out on a family cruise and explore the family-centric opportunities available on Norwegian, depending on your child’s age, interests and destination.

For families with little ones, check out the Kids Sail Free options on the company’s site. Bring the kids and explore Cuba, the Bahamas and Miami for four days on the Norwegian Sky, beginning at $640 for each adult.


For a little more bang for your buck, opt for the seven-day Western Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona, beginning at $700 per adult. Embark on the award-winning Norwegian Epic and explore Spain, Italy, France, and back to Spain with the whole family.


With affordable rates for kids and varying specials by family size, age and interest, Norwegian offers a myriad of ways to save.


Take advantage of the youth programs included in your trip, including children as young as 6 months old. The Guppies Program caters to babies 6 months to 3 years old and includes specific activities designed for parents and babies to do together, and a nursery for when you want to spend some quality time apart.


The Splash Academy offers kids aged 3–12 varying activities from creative play for the younger kids and sports for the pre-teens. Let the kids play on their own, or meet up for some parents-included activities. If you need some alone time away from the kids and they need some space, group seating is available for an additional charge.


The Entourage program looks out for your teens, ages 13–17, treating them to their own space complete with clubs and entertainment just for them. They can team up and play sports and video games, or enjoy some music, arts and movies in the lounge.
