Norwegian Cruise Line Announces New Europe Itineraries for Summer 2017

Cruise News – Jan. 26, 2016

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced its summer 2017 deployment for Europe that, for the first time in company history, features five ships sailing in Europe in the summer season. Highlights of the new itineraries include cruises to the Baltic Capitals on Norwegian Getaway from Copenhagen and a first-ever complete season from Hamburg on Norwegian Jade, with embarkation for those cruises also available in the UK and Amsterdam.

Itinerary highlights include:

  • Norwegian Getaway will sail 8- and 9-night Baltic Capitals cruises from Copenhagen with calls in Tallinn, Estonia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; and an overnight in St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • Marking the first time that Norwegian will homeport a ship in Hamburg, Germany, Norwegian Jade will first undergo an extensive dry dock in spring 2017 for the ship’s Norwegian Edge™ updates before reemerging on May 14, 2017, to begin sailing from Hamburg on a series of 7- and 9-day Western Europe cruises; 9- and 10-day Norwegian Fjords cruises; 12-day Norway & North Cape sailings; and a 14-day Norway, Iceland & UK cruise.
  • Norwegian will return to England for the first time since 2010 during summer 2017, as Norwegian Jade will call on Southampton during her cruises from Hamburg. From May 12–June 20 and August 7–October 16, 2017, guests can choose to embark from Southampton for either 7- and 9-day Western Europe cruises or 9- and 10-day Norwegian Fjords cruises. Guests can also choose to embark from Amsterdam on select dates for 7-day Western Europe cruises.
  • Three additional ships in Europe in 2017 include the recently refurbished Norwegian Epic sailing a 7-night Western Mediterranean itinerary, where guests can choose to depart from Barcelona, Civitavecchia (Rome) or Marseille; Norwegian Spirit sailing alternating 10- and 11-night Grand Mediterranean cruises between Barcelona and Venice; and Norwegian Star, which will spend the summer cruising from Venice to the Greek Isles as well as the Adriatic, Greece & Turkey.

“With these exciting new summer European itineraries, we are offering our guests a wider variety of adventurous itineraries that span the continent, while also bringing one of our newest and most innovative ships to Europe”, said Andy Stuart, president and chief operating officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.

The new itineraries open for sale for Latitudes guests and travel partners on February 9, 2016, and for all bookings on February 10, 2016.
