Get excited because the return of cruising is just around the corner! NCL has announced its first voyages post-COVID to Europe and the Caribbean this July.

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced its highly anticipated return to service, with new itineraries sailing Europe and The Caribbean beginning 25 July, 2021.

The Cruise Line will restart operations at a reduced capacity with Norwegian Jade, Joy and Gem as the first of its 17-ship fleet to welcome guests back on board.

OH EM GEE, tell me more!

Travellers long-awaiting a return to cruise will have the opportunity to spend the northern hemisphere summer exploring ancient ruins and sunny beaches with all new seven-day cruises to the Greek Isles on Norwegian Jade from Athens (Piraeus) beginning 25 July,2021.

They can also island-hop with week-long Caribbean itineraries available from Montego Bay, Jamaica as of 7 August 2021 on Norwegian Joy or from Punta Cana (La Romana), Dominican Republic on Norwegian Gem beginning 15 August 2021.

“Over a year after we initially suspended sailings, the time has finally come when we can provide our loyal guests with the news of our great cruise comeback,” said Norwegian Cruise Line’s President and Chief Executive Officer Harry Sommer. 

“We have been working diligently towards our resumption of operations, focusing on the guest experience with health and safety at the forefront. The growing availability of the COVID-19 vaccine has been a game-changer.

“The vaccine, combined with our science-backed health and safety protocols, will help us provide our guests with what we believe will be the healthiest and safest vacation at sea.”
