Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) adds Spain’s Canary Islands to its Europe cruise offering for the first time since 2017, providing year-round itineraries and more options for Europe sailings from November 2022.

The almost 2,000-passenger Norwegian Sun will make her six-month season debut to the Spanish archipelago off the coast of North Africa known as The Canaries, departing from 21 November 2022 on 10-to-14-day itineraries.

Norwegian Sun will offer a choice of Lisbon, Portugal; Malaga, Spain; and Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands as embarkation points as well as brand-new NCL ports such as Puerto del Rosario (Fuerteventura) and San Sebastian de la Gomera, Canary Islands; Cueta, Spain; Agadir, Morocco and Horta (Azores), Portugal.

NCL CEO and president Harry Sommers said: “Norwegian Sun’s new itineraries provide for a unique combination of the Canary Islands with ports in Portugal, mainland Spain as well as Morocco, offering our guests an all-year Europe season with nine ships to make the most of their travel this year.” 

“The Canaries has always been a draw for travellers from all over the globe and no more so when seeking some much-needed sun.”

The immersive Canary Island sailings provide access to sought-after destinations, such as Agadir and Casablanca in Morocco and Spain’s Las Palmas and Arrecife, as well as visiting the hidden gems of Ceuta in North Africa and Cadiz in Spain.

The inclusion of the Norwegian Sun to the NCL fleet adds 22 departures for the new Europe season from November 2022 to April 2023.

The newest NCL ship and the first of the ground-breaking Prima Class, Norwegian Prima, will also make her maiden voyage in Iceland in 2022.

Nine NCL ships will be sailing in European waters, offering a choice of more ports and itineraries from the Greek Isles and the Mediterranean to Norwegian fjords.
