Norwegian Cruise Line is keeping up with kids-free cruise lines such as Viking Cruises and Branson’s forthcoming Virgin Voyages by expanding its adults-only ‘enclaves’ onto three more ships.

During Norwegian Sun, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Star‘s recent makeovers, the three ships received upgrades to its guest services and experiences, including the addition of Spice H2O – an adults-only space.

Inside the top-deck kids-free zone on all three ships, cruisers have access to an adults-only pool, adults-only hot tub and adults-only bar.


During the day, Spice H2o is described as the ideal spot for sunbathing, and at night, it transforms into an open-air lounge with live entertainment, DJs and energising themed nights.

Let the fun begin!


New features also added to each vessel during their recent refurbishments include Los Lobos Cantina – an upscale Mexican restaurant; and Syd Norman’s Pour House – an American rock ‘n’ roll bar and lounge.

Accommodation and public spaces aboard Norwegian Break were upgraded with new carpet and premium furniture, while Norwegian Sun‘s was fitted with three new venues including Bliss Ultra Lounge, which replaces Dazzles as the new bar and nightclub; and the Spinnaker Lounge, which takes over the Observation Lounge.


Meanwhile, the Bier Garten on Norwegian Star has been replaced by the Sky High Bar, and the Spinnaker Lounge was removed in favour of the late-night entertainment lounge, Bliss Ultra Lounge.

Norwegian’s President & Chief Executive, Andy Stuart, said the upgrade across the vessels is a testament to the line’s investment in guests and their onboard experience.

“Although we are one of the youngest fleets in the industry, we are very committed to The Norwegian Edge program which allows us to remain consistent, relevant and exciting.”
