NCL has released a series of exotic itineraries for 2024/25, including a selection of new ports of call for the cruise line. Norwegian Spirit, Norwegian Sun and Norwegian Sky will make their debut in Asia, and an expanded offering will be available in Antarctica, South America, Africa, Asia, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
The itineraries, which operate between October 2024 and December 2025, will include brand-new ports for NCL: Manama in Bahrain, Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, Sokhna, Egypt and the Japanese city of Akita.
Harry Sommer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line, said: “Our guests are craving longer, immersive and more unique itineraries that take them off the beaten path. These new sailings represent the most diverse itinerary program to date and feature many brand firsts, including an extended Asia offering and new ports in Argentina, Bahrain, Japan and Egypt.
“Coupled with NCL’s renowned onboard experiences – from spacious accommodations, exceptional entertainment and diverse dining options that rival land-based offerings, it truly is an unforgettable way to explore the world.”
