For the first time ever, Norwegian Cruise Line is deploying three ships to the Asia Pacific in 2024 and 2025. As expected, Norwegian Spirit will return to Australia and New Zealand for her third consecutive season, while Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Sky, as well as Spirit, will also sail Asian itineraries.
Ben Angell, MD and VP for NCL in APAC said: “Our expanded presence in the Asia Pacific is testament to our long-term commitment to this region and its importance to our company as both a source market and a destination.
“I’m thrilled that guests from all over the world will have more choice than ever before to explore our stunning region, and that more Australian guests will have the opportunity to experience the NCL difference while cruising from their very own doorstep.”
Norwegian Spirit‘s confirmed 2024 and 2025 comes fresh off the success of her first season on our shores, and also comes with some brand new sailings and ports.
Guests can look forward to sailing such as a two-week sailing out of Sydney that visits Brisbane, Cairns, Lombok and Darwin, including an overnight stay in Bali.
There will also be two South Pacific sailings, visiting eight and nine ports across 14 and 15 days respectively. Then for a different way to see the South Pacific, you can sail a 16-day Fiji, Moorea & Samoa itinerary, that includes NCL’s first ever visit to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.
Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Sky will both be making their first ever visits to Asia, offering a huge eight-month season from October 2024 to May 2025. Both ships fit only 2000 or so passengers, offering a more intimate experience than the larger NCL ships. This allows for increased port accessibility and therefore, more immersive itineraries with less sea days and more overnight stays.
The Norwegian Sun will visit the port of Akita in October 2024.
Then you have endless other itinerary options across the long season, with calls across Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Phillipines, the Maldives and more.
