Norwegian Cruise Line announced updates to its summer 2018 deployment, as the Norwegian Sun will introduce short sailings to Cuba from South Florida, while the Norwegian Jewel takes the Sun’s place in the Alaska market.
The Norwegian Jewel will rejoin the Alaska fleet in summer 2018, with seven- and nine-day sailings from Seattle, Seward and Vancouver, Norwegian said in a press release.
“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 for Norwegian Cruise Line.
Following its winter 2017/2018 season sailing in Australia and Asia, Norwegian Jewel will journey from Tokyo (Yokohama) to Seattle and will replace Norwegian Sun as Norwegian’s third ship sailing in Alaska in summer 2018.
