Norwegian Cruise Line reveals ship, port changes…

Posted on 06 January 2011

The Norwegian Jewel will operate seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises out of Miami.
Norwegian Cruise Line is taking the Norwegian Sun out of Port Canaveral for the 2012 – 2013 season, citing better demand in other markets.


NCL said it would look into returning to Port Canaveral when its fleet size increases, but for now, the line said there is more demand in Europe, where the cruise line recently said it would base four ships in 2012.

The Sun will become NCL’s third ship in Miami, sailing 10- and 11-night Southern Caribbean cruises beginning in October 2012. It will join the 4,100-passenger Norwegian Epic for its third season out of Miami on Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises, and the Norwegian Jewel, which will also operate seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises.

NCL said it would announce shortly which ship will replace the Jewel in New York.

In other shifts, the 2,224-passenger Norwegian Dawn will replace the Norwegian Star in Tampa, offering seven-day Western Caribbean cruises beginning in November 2012, and the Star will move to New Orleans during the winter and spring offering seven-day Western Caribbean cruises.

The Star replaces the 2,018-passenger Norwegian Spirit, which NCL said recently would will be the line’s fourth ship in Europe.
