Norwegian Cruise Line dominates the cruise schedule in New York. Two of their ships leave from Manhattan year-round. See the full list of departures below.
On a Norwegian cruise you can do everything, or nothing at all. For those who prefer to be active there are adventurous shore excursions, art auctions, health programs, cooking demonstrations - all kinds of activities to challenge your mind and your body. Or you can just relax and enjoy not having a schedule to follow. You can wear what you want. "Resort casual" attire is as dressy as you'll ever have to get for dinner. But if it's elegance you're looking for, you can indulge. Many of the restaurants offer formal options. If you prefer to be more casual, that's fine, too. It's all up to you on Norwegian Cruises.
