Norwegian SunNorwegian Cruise Line has announced the inauguration of new routes to Alaska and Cuba for the 2018 holiday season. The Bahamas registered cruise line’s Norwegian Sun will offer three and four night voyages to Havana as well as the Bahamas.

These cruises will depart from Port Canaveral with the first one set to sail on 7 May. The Cuba connection will include a port-of-call at Key West in the US state of Miami. Norwegian says the Norwegian Sun cruise prices will come fully inclusive of alcohol and soft drinks.

The Norwegian Sun can accommodate 1,936 passengers and will undergo a refurbishment before embarking on the voyages from her new home port.

The line’s Norwegian Jewel will be heading to Alaska next summer. Longer seven and nine night voyages will take passengers on odysseys of the North Pacific Ocean with departures and ports of call at Seattle, Vancouver and Seward.

Commenting on the forthcoming itineraries, Norwegian CEO Andy Stuart noted that the attractions of Alaska had not lost their magnetic allure. He explained that both the Norwegian Jewel and Norwegian Bliss were being deployed to the region to provide guests booking cruises with enhanced choices.

The CEO said the Norwegian Sky’s all-inclusive programmes had proved to be a winner and that was the reason for introducing it on Norwegian Sun cruises from Port Canaveral. He finished off by saying these packages combined with exotic destinations were sure to satisfy guests.
