Immersive 2020 itineraries are now available from Norwegian Cruise Line that include Norwegian Jade’s Greek Isles and Italy cruises, featuring bucket list destinations like Santorini and Mykonos, Greece and Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Port-intensive itineraries on Norwegian Spirit and Norwegian Sun are also available. Following a multi-million-dollar, bow-to-stern revitalization in January 2020, Norwegian Spirit will return to Asia for a series of immersive itineraries.
From May 9 through Dec. 21, 2020, Norwegian Spirit will sail a mix of 9- to 15-day voyages showcasing the best of the region including four new ports of call for the brand: Beppu, Kumamoto, Niigata, and Nagoya, Japan. Norwegian Spirit will also overnight in Tokyo and Kyoto (Osaka), Japan; Shanghai, China; and Hong Kong.
During these unique itineraries, guests will have the chance to witness the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan; view the colorful fall foliage in Taipei, Taiwan; visit the largest temple in Shanghai, the Longhua Temple; walk the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China; or drift down the Love River in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Following a 3-year hiatus in the region, Norwegian Sun returns to Alaska on May 21, 2020, joining Norwegian Bliss, Joy, and Jewel. Norwegian Sun will offer the brand’s most extensive itineraries in the area with 9- to12-day voyages from Seattle with calls to Sitka, Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier, Holkham Bay, Juneau and Ketchikan, Alaska; as well as a stop in Victoria, British Columbia. Guests can spend a full day exploring Icy Strait Point in Alaska, providing a more culturally authentic experience.
In April 2018, Norwegian Sun underwent a 3-week bow-to-stern renovation as part of the Norwegian Edge program, the company’s commitment to elevating the standard of excellence across the fleet. Enhancements were made to every part of the onboard experience. The ship now features refreshed staterooms and public spaces and three new venues including Los Lobos Cantina, Bliss Ultra Lounge, and Spinnaker Lounge.
Beginning Sept. 8, 2020, Norwegian Jade will offer a variety of one-way, 10- to 11-day Greek Isles, Italy, and Mediterranean cruises departing or returning from Barcelona, Spain; Venice, Italy; and Athens (Piraeus), Greece, where the company will homeport for the first time. These port-intensive itineraries offer guests two distinct homeports to explore and the chance to discover a new destination every day with calls to Monte Carlo, Monaco; Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Rome (Civitavecchia), Naples and Messina, Italy; Olympia (Katakolon), Santorini, Rhodes and Mykonos, Greece; and Kusadasi, Turkey.
