Norwegian Cruise Line’s 2020 Alaska sailings will depart from Seattle, Seward and Vancouver from April to October with its youngest ever fleet.
The ships cruising to Alaska include the line’s newest ship Norwegian Bliss.
The recently refurbished Norwegian Joy, currently sailing her inaugural season in Alaska, will also be returning in 2020. The Norwegian Jewel and Norwegian Sun will join the fleet in Alaska.
“Once seen as a cruising destination for more senior travellers, Norwegian is re-imagining the Alaska cruise experience to cater to all ages, elevating the onboard offering to new heights with amenities such as go-kart track and open air laser tag, making NCL a pioneer in the region,” says Nicole Costantin, Vice President Sales Australia and New Zealand at Norwegian Cruise Line.
“We pride ourselves on offering guests the chance to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a Norwegian Cruise Line experience, whether travellers are looking for a multi-generational Alaskan adventure for the entire family, a special romantic getaway or a solo bucket-list voyage.”
The line will be delivering scenic glacier cruising and visit iconic Alaskan ports including Juneau, Skagway, Icy Straight Point and Ketchikan, says Ms Constantin.
