Cruise your way to 3 of the world's most beautiful places

From Alaska to Hawaii, now you can cruise in style with Norwegian Cruise Line to some of the world's most beautiful places. We take a look at three of the best:

Enter a Hawaiian paradise

Hawaii

How does spending a full week in paradise sound?

From Oahu, Maui, Kauai to the Big Island, every island in Hawaii has something unique to offer and the best way to see them is with Norwegian Cruise Line, of course.

Explore like a native as you hop from one exotic island to the next in seven days ­ which means you're on an island each and every day.

At the same time, learn about Hawaiian culture through the eyes of local ambassadors on board.

With overnight stays in Maui and Kauai, you can hike up a waterfall, gaze at an active volcano and shake it like you mean it at an authentic lu'au.

And if you're a golfer, enjoy teeing off on some of the best courses in Hawaii.

Explore more on land with exclusive shore excursions depending on your interest ­ be it a coffee tour in Kona, or the iconic Pearl Harbour in Honolulu.

Norwegian's Pride of America is the the only cruise liner which sails round­trip from Honolulu year-­round.

Norwegian

With a new US$30 million (S$42 million) makeover, now holidaymakers can island hop in more style than ever before.

New accommodations onboard include 24 luxurious Suites, more Inside Staterooms and award-winning Studios for solo travellers.

Who wouldn't want to spend seven days in paradise? Leaving it, however, will take a lot of convincing.

A Mediterranean adventure

Mediterranean

See more of the Eastern and Western Mediterranean in luxury with our seven­day cruises departing from Barcelona, Copenhagen, Venice, or Rome.

If a short getaway is all you can afford, enjoy a three­day sojourn from Barcelona to Provence and Majorca.

If you have a week or more to spare, take a longer voyage, with tours of up to 14 days departing from the four most desired destinations in Europe.

On board Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Epic or Norwegian Star, traverse the Greek Isles and voyage to places which other cruise lines feature only on longer itineraries.

Greece

Sail through the maze of magical, mythical Greek islands of Santorini, and Mykonos, and visit Istanbul and its bustling Grand Bazaar as well.

When you take one of Norwegian's new Europe Cruisetours, you'll immerse yourself in more culture and adventure than ever before in Europe's most famous cities.

Explore the famed Pantheon and Trevi Fountain in historic Rome and the distinctive La Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona, not forgetting the ancient city of Pompeii in Naples.

There's no better way to enjoy the panoramic views of the soaring cliffs along the Amalfi Coast than on your balcony aboard the Norwegian.

Or swing by romantic Venice to see Murano artisans hand­blow glass into delicate flowers and vases.

Wherever you go, the mysteries of the Mediterranean are yours to discover.

Prepare for the unexpected in Alaska

Alaska

If the idea of exploring one of the world's largest tracts of untamed wilderness makes your body tingle, Alaska is for you.

Where else can you find yourself splashed by an acrobatic whale or mushing a dog sled across an ice field?

Few places evoke the wonder that is Alaska.

Misty coastal rain forests give way to a rugged arctic interior checkered with towering mountain ranges.

Glaciers appear deceptively silent until a startling crack reminds you they are flowing rivers of ice.

In summer, whales come here to feed and in winter, you could walk across the ice to Siberia.

Join a seven or 10-­day Glacier Bay tour on Norwegian Pearl, and experience a relic of the Ice Age with a thousand rocky islands.

Or visit Sawyer Glacier, twin glaciers tucked at the end of a 30 mile fjord.

At Skagway, learn about the history of this remote town that served as a hotspot for gold rush at the turn of the 19th century.

No matter if you are a brazen adventurer or a quiet naturalist, Alaska has something for you.

You may also combine your vacation with an exclusive Cruisetour led by a local Alaskan and head deeper into the frozen wilderness.

Unlike any place on earth, Alaska is filled with the unexpected and the indelible.

One thing's for sure, you may leave Alaska, but Alaska will never leave you.
