Jo’El and I attended a training dinner the other night hosted by our Norwegian Regional Sales Representative. The training was very informative and lasted about an hour. I will list here some of the biggest takeaways that I got from the training. We have never been on a Norwegian cruise, but after Wednesday night, it will be one of our next vacations!
Norwegian has been in business for 50 years. They are the 3rd largest cruise company and have the youngest fleet in the industry. They were the first to offer what is known today as Freestyle cruising.
Firsts! This is a list of Norwegian firsts. This is a list that I can say most of us did not know.
- The first cruise line to go to the Caribbean.
- The first to have a private island, Great Stirrup Cay.
- The first to provide a Kids program.
- The first to have full broadway productions onboard.
- Creation of the “Haven” luxury suites.
- The first with Solo cabins “Studios” and reduce the cost for single travelers.
- First ship in Seattle to go to Alaska.
- The first to offer Freestyle cruising.
Norwegian departs from ports all over the world and the destinations are endless. I posted yesterday about them earning the best in class for Hawaii for 12 years running. There literally are too many itineraries to list here.
