National, February 1, 2024: Ahoy there, thrill seekers and ocean explorers! Buckle up for a journey that’s more exciting than a roller coaster and one that will make you experience the biggest thrills at sea. The promise of an adrenaline rush aboard a cruise ship is so sweet, there’s even a day titled ‘Take a Cruise Day’ celebrated on February 3 every year. If you’re someone who’s constantly on the lookout for your next big adventure, explore these thrills at sea offered only on a cruise ship!
Curate your own unique splashes in the ships’ in-house Aqua Parks where pools, slides and other water features take you on rides of a lifetime! NCL’s Thrillplex activity zones* takes it up a notch, boasting the largest two-story race tracks at sea and the largest rope course that defies gravity and leaves you screaming, ‘One more time!’ You can also battle it out in the largest outdoor laser tag arena or discover a virtual wonderland in the Galaxy Pavilion.
*ThrillPlex activity zones, available on Breakaway Plus and Breakaway class ships.
The thrill of unpacking just once
For frequent travellers, imagine the thrill of not having to unpack repeatedly as per different temperatures and experiences! No more suitcase shenanigans on a cruise ship because you unpack just once! Your ship is a home away from home, a sanctuary at sea that allows you to spend your time more constructively than sitting with your bags! What’s more you explore multiple destinations for no additional cost, waking up to a new destination nearly every day!
Imagine a world where schedules and dress codes are as distant as a castaway island and where you can decide your day with no set meal times or dress codes! You can enjoy this freedom only aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship who’ve mastered the concept of ‘free-style’ cruising!
From Steak to Sushi there are more dining options than sea days – whether you prefer to dine indoors or outdoors there is something for everyone.
Many ships have 10 or more bars or lounges with live music performances each day so there is no shortage of entertainment.
Rock the Deck Parties
Cruise ships reflect a whole new persona when the sun dips below the horizon and the ship decks are all lit up for a night of partying! Join the sailaway party or dance the night away at the 80s Rock-N-Glow Party – whichever party you choose NCL’s are transformed into a floating fiesta under a canopy of stars.
Ace the Casinos
Hold your cards close as you sip a salt-rimmed margarita because the casino poker machines are on fire! Join the Players Club at Sea and win some hard-earned reward points post the party that you can relax at Mandara Spa or dine at one of the delightful specialty restaurants – the perfect winding down to your thrilling casino experience!
Cruise ships are not just a vessel to take you from Point A to Point B, they are packed with all the thrills and frills you can think of! So, when are you taking your cruise thrill-cation?
