Norwegian Cruise Line is just about five months away from finally returning to Asia after three long years.

While a blockbuster 2024 and 2025 are already penciled in, the 2023 season will mark a triumphant return to Asian waters for the cruise line, when Norwegian Jewel returns to Tokyo. She’ll sail 16 voyages over six months, visiting 11 countries on a series of voyages between 10 and 14 days.

The season ahead also contains two brand new homeport destinations for the cruise line, the Philippines and South Korea. Other voyage homeports include Yokohama, Taipei, Bangkok, Bali and Kuala Lumpur.

The voyages also feature a range of first-time ports for the cruise line, including Manila, Boracay, Palawan, Sahlomague, Bintan Island, and Hualien.

Depending on which sailing you snap up you might also get the chance for a late-night stay in cities such as Phuket, Osaka, and Bali.

Vice President & Managing Director Ben Angell told Cruise Weekly: “After more than three years, Asia is back in a big way.

“We know our Australian guests can’t wait to return to this incredible region and as a smaller ship, Norwegian Jewel is the perfect size to explore Asia’s lesser-known ports, while offering all the features we know local cruisers love.”

Norwegian Jewel packs in up to 2376 guests, 13 bars, and dining options, including three Asian restaurants that will mean you can eat local whether on an excursion or at sea.
