The cornerstone of the core brand Norwegian Cruise Line was laid in 1966. It is not without reason that the brand celebrates itself as an innovator in the cruise industry and as the inventor of "freestyle cruising". This concept offers the ship's guests a cutting-edge fleet, many restaurants and first-class entertainment. At first glance, all this seems as if the NCL brand were aimed solely at mass business. That is only partially true. The luxurious enclave "The Haven by Norwegian" offers discerning and affluent guests a suite area with a private restaurant, private pool, concierge service and butlers.
