Norwegian Jade

Norwegian Cruise Line has confirmed that it will continue to sail from Southampton in 2018.  

The line is returning to the UK for the first time in seven years in 2017 with Norwegian Jade.

The ship will operate a series of Norway, Iceland and North Cape cruises from Southampton and Hamburg in 2018. It will also sail British Isles cruises.

Norwegian Breakaway will depart New York on April 15 for the first time since its inaugural season in 2013 for a 12-night transatlantic voyage to London, docking in Southampton.

Once in Europe, Norwegian Breakaway will undergo enhancements in dry dock and then sail to its new seasonal homeports of Copenhagen and Warnemünde, where it will sail nine-night Scandinavia and Russia cruises through the summer season.

Yesterday the line announced its full summer 2018 and autumn/winter 2018/19 itineraries.

New for 2018 is a 14-night Eastern Caribbean cruise sailing from Boston on Norwegian Dawn in October 2018.

The new Norwegian Bliss, arriving in June 2018, will lead Norwegian’s 2018 Alaska fleet with its inaugural season to the region, offering seven-night voyages departing each Saturday from Seattle.

Elsewhere, Norwegian Spirit will sail 10-night western Mediterranean and 11-night Mediterranean and Adriatic cruises from Rome.
