Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has announced additional voyages scheduled to set sail from New York, Los Angeles, Port Canaveral and Miami.
As part of its relaunch plan, the cruise Line has announced its highly anticipated return to Miami with Norwegian Gem scheduled to cruise seven-day itineraries to the Caribbean beginning Aug 15, 2021 and a four-day voyage to the Bahamas in November. The company has also opened for sale additional itineraries to Bermuda starting Sept 26, 2021 from New York on Norwegian Breakaway, the Mexican Riviera on Oct 24, 2021 from Los Angeles aboard Norwegian Bliss, and the Caribbean on Nov 13, 2021 from Port Canaveral, on Norwegian Escape.
In addition, Norwegian Encore, the newest ship in the fleet, will make her debut on the West Coast, replacing the previously announced Norwegian Bliss in Seattle for the 2021 summer cruise season, calling to the Alaskan ports of Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and Icy Strait Point, while also offering guests majestic views of Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier or Glacier Bay.
“I’m very proud that we continue to redeploy our fleet methodically. Our efforts to resume cruising safely will continue to be slow and steady, guided by the science-backed protocols of our Sail Safe health and safety program and in collaboration with our destination partners as well as with a variety of governing bodies. With these additional itineraries, we’re providing travelers with more opportunities to set sail from some of their favorite homeports and to some of their preferred destinations,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “We are very excited to sail in the U.S. again, and to sail first with our latest beautiful ship Norwegian Encore. We’re able to reintroduce her to our guests and invite them to experience her world-class offerings, as she makes her debut in Seattle and Alaska,” he added.
