Norwegian Cruise Line's New European Summer Itineraries

Posted April 29th, 2016

Are you dreaming of a gondola ride through the canals of Venice? Yearning to see Gaudi’s famous architecture in Barcelona? Or maybe, you just want to take it slow on the Greek Islands? If you’re planning on holidaying in Europe, Norwegian Cruise Line has just fulfilled all of your desires. The company recently announced its ground-breaking program that will see five of the company’s elegant ships sail exclusively around Europe over the summer months of 2017.

The colourful Norwegian Getaway

Five Ships, One Continent, Infinite Possibilities

Norwegian Cruise Line’s offering will include a wide variety of itineraries that reach all edges of the continent, from the spectacular Norwegian Fjords to the pristine beaches of Santorini. The summer program will mark the first time that the line’s second-newest ship, the Norwegian Getaway, has been back to Europe since its delivery in 2014. The Norwegian Getaway will sail through the Baltic Sea on itineraries that dock at incredible sites such Helsinki, Stockholm and Estonia, as well as an overnight stop in St Petersburg, Russia.

Also joining the program is the Norwegian Jade which will sail from Hamburg throughout the summer cruising season. The Norwegian Jade is one of the line’s four Jewel-class ships and is designed around the Norwegian ‘freestyle’ philosophy, where guests enjoy the ship without conforming to any stuffy rules about clothing or dining. The Norwegian Jade will travel to destinations through Western Europe, the Norwegian Fjords, Northern Europe and the United Kingdom.

Before the season, however, the Norwegian Jade will undergo an extensive dry dock where it will receive enhancements to every aspect of the cruising experience. Costing $400 million in total, The Norwegian Edge™ initiative will see all of the Norwegian ships go through the same renovations so that the entire fleet boasts an elegant aesthetic and premier facilities. In addition to the Norwegian Getaway and Norwegian Jade, there will be three other ships joining the line’s summer 2017 season.

The Norwegian Cruise Line Experience

Norwegian Cruise Line prides itself on a 49-year-history that has seen the company go from strength to strength. Norwegian is always pushing the boundaries to give you the best possible holiday experience and you’ll enjoy a high standard of quality and service across the entire fleet. The dining on board is impeccable at both the specialty and complimentary restaurants. No matter where you choose, there are no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating as part of the Norwegian ‘freestyle’ program. You’ll also appreciate the world-class entertainment line-up that features everything from Rock of Ages to ballroom dancing, as well as the various activities and shore excursions offered each day. All aspects work together to give you a relaxed and revitalising cruise holiday that will make you want to do it all over again!

It’s worth noting that Norwegian Cruise Line will also host a variety of exciting itineraries around the Caribbean through summer 2017 and the rest of the year.
