1. She Is a Sister Ship to Norwegian Bliss
Built in 2017, Norwegian Joy offers decks full of amazing shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment just waiting for you to enjoy. Like her sister ship, Norwegian Bliss, she features many of the same incredible venues including the amazing Observation Lounge.

The first ever of its kind at sea, this thrilling two-level race track offers an exhilarating combination of hairpin turns, a covered pit lane, and a viewing platform. 

3. She Boasts Virtual Reality and Laser Tag
The Galaxy Pavilion on board Norwegian Joy features an interactive video wall plus interactive virtual reality experiences to get your thrill on, including a Star Wars cockpit simulator. Plus, like her sister, she also features an outdoor Laser Tag experience. 



4. She Features an Outdoor Promenade, The Waterfront
Designed to connect you with the ocean, the quarter-mile Waterfront offers an enticing combination of restaurants, bars, and fresh ocean air. 

5. She is the Perfect Ship for Families
Unique to Norwegian Joy, Concierge Staterooms offer more space - enough to fit your family comfortably. These staterooms with upscale amenities range from Concierge Family Inside Staterooms with two bedrooms and a virtual balcony to Concierge Penthouse and Villa Suites with actual balconies. 

6. She Has an Exclusive Retreat Called The Haven
This exclusive retreat offers pampering amenities, such as a 24-hour certified butler, private pool access, and an incredible two-story observation area, Horizon Lounge, along with a sundeck, a hot tub, and an upscale restaurant.
