Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line is known for turning traditional cruising on its head with its"Freestyle Cruising" philosophy. They captured the market of cruisers that are tired of the though strict dining times, dress codes and limited options while on board. Norwegian has paved the way for other cruise lines to follow suit with their own version of freestyle cruising.

Also, NCL is the only cruise line to offer a year-round Hawaiian itinerary. The Pride of America offers a 7-day round trip Hawaiian cruise out of Honolulu that hits 4 different islands. Oahu, Maui, Kauai & The Big Island.
