Norwegian Cruise Line offers guests new destinations and ports in 2016 and 2017, including itineraries to Asia, the Arabian Gulf, and India.
Sailings to Asia on board the Norwegian Star depart from Istanbul, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Auckland. The 20-day Eastern Mediterranean and The Gulf itinerary, for example, departs from Istanbul and stops in Ephesus, Turkey; Rhodes, Greece; Haifa, Israel; Port Said, Sharm El Sheikh and Safaga, Egypt; Aqaba, Jordan; Salalah and Muscat, Oman; and Dubai. The Norwegian Star also sails on 11- and 14-day itineraries in Southeast Asia departing from Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as 12-day Australia and New Zealand itineraries. This marks the line’s return to Asia and Australia—a first since the Norwegian Wind sailed in the fall and winter of 2001 to 2002—as well as the line’s first sailing to the Arabian Gulf and India. Norwegian is also sailing to South America on 7- to 20-night itineraries with embarkations in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Also new to the lineup is the Norwegian Jewel’s new 14-day itinerary to the Panama Canal from Los Angeles and Miami in February 2017 (the line has Panama Canal deployments already scheduled for 2016). In addition, the Norwegian Epic will continue to spend her summers in Europe and returns to the U.S. in the fall as Norwegian’s newest and largest ship to homeport in Port Canaveral. The Norwegian Epic offers 3-, 4-, and 7-day Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, as well as Bahamas sailings.
Norwegian’s new itineraries will be available for booking later this month: the Caribbean sailings open on Aug. 19, and all other destinations open on Aug. 24, 2015. For more information, call (888) 625-2784 or visit ncl.com.
