Norwegian Cruise Line is set to return to the Canary Islands with the line sailing all-year round in Europe.
Norwegian Sun was initially meant to sail in Asia, but has been diverted to the Canary Islands due to ongoing uncertainty over cruising in Asia. NCL last sailed to the Canary Islands in 2017.
This gives NCL a total of nine ships sailing in Europe. A 22-day trans-Atlantic voyages from Miami to Lisbon will take Norwegian Sun into Europe, where she’ll begin a series of 10 to 14 day voyages from a range of ports such as Malaga, Lisbon and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. There will so be first time ports for NCL including Puerto del Rosario and San Sebastian de la Gomera.
NCL is also promising immersive cruises, with no more than two sea days and an average of 12 hours at each port.
Harry Sommer, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line said: “The Canaries have always been a draw for travellers from all over the globe and more so now when seeking some much-needed winter sun.
“Norwegian Sun’s new itineraries provide for a unique combination of the Canary Islands with ports in Portugal, mainland Spain as well as Morocco, offering our guests an all-year Europe season with nine ships to make the most of their travel this year.”
