Norwegian Cruise Line will send Norwegian Jewel to Alaska and Norwegian Sun to Cuba as part of an update to the line’s summer 2018 deployment.
Norwegian Sun will offer all-inclusive three-day cruises to the Bahamas and four-day cruises to Havana, Cuba; and Key West from Port Canaveral, Florida.
Norwegian Jewel will replace Norwegian Sun in Alaska, where guests will be able to enjoy seven- and nine-day sailings from Seattle, Seward, and Vancouver.
“Alaska continues to be one of the most popular destinations we sail to around the world. We are thrilled to be significantly increasing capacity in the region in summer 2018 with the redeployment of Norwegian Jewel and the inaugural season for Norwegian Bliss, providing more opportunities for our guests to experience a vacation of a lifetime in this incredible pristine destination,” said Andy Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Our all-inclusive model aboard Norwegian Sky has been very well-received and as we evaluated the opportunity to expand upon that concept, we felt that Port Canaveral was the ideal location to offer our guests a value-rich on board experience and exciting action-packed ports-of-call, including an overnight call in Havana, Cuba.”
Norwegian Sun will undergo a two-and-a-half week refurbishment before making her way from Seattle to Port Canaveral on a 17-day Panama Canal cruise on April 19, 2018.
