Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), an innovative global cruise travel brand for over 56 years, announces the reinforcement of its operation in Europe with larger, more diverse, and unique itineraries for the 2023 season, allowing maximum flexibility and virtually limitless options for travelers.

A total of ten cruises will sail in European waters by December 2023, including Norwegian Prima and Norwegian Viva, the first two ships in the company’s innovative Prima Class range, offering 132 different itineraries, with 46 round trips and 86 amazing open-jaw travel. The cruises will depart from 15 different ports, including, for the first time, Bilbao (Spain), Tromsø (Norway), Marseille (France), and Ravenna (Italy), sailing from 150 ports in Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, including Lisbon, and Greek Islands – offering more European destinations than any other cruise line.

To further enhance the holiday experience for guests, NCL is shifting its strategy to longer cruises, as 87% of European passengers are planning a holiday lasting 9 days or more, compared to 63% in 2019. With an average layover of 10.5 hours in each port, passengers can explore each destination at their leisure or opt for a wide range of excursions, which include six new categories such as Beyond Blueprints, Gourmet Tours, and Go Local, allowing them to discover even more every city they visit.

“Europe is a destination that has captured the hearts and minds of travelers for generations. This season, we are excited to provide even more opportunities to explore this fascinating continent,” said Kevin Bubolz, Vice President & Managing Director of Continental Europe, Middle East & Africa at NCL. “Following the easing of travel restrictions and the reopening of the Asia-Pacific region, we have seen demand for European travel come back with a vengeance. With passengers from over 142 countries already confirmed, it’s clear that people are eager to get out and see the world.”

A recent study revealed that holidays are 70% more expensive this year, with packages in Spain, Turkey, Italy, and Greece being the highest. With NCL’s commitment to providing an unparalleled vacation experience at sea, guests can be confident that they will receive an excellent experience for their money. Prices for a Europe cruise start at €599 for an interior cabin and include accommodation, meals in the main restaurants, snacks, and buffet restaurants, Broadway and West End style entertainment, numerous onboard activities, as well as taxes and fees. Passengers who want an even more personalized experience can upgrade to NCL Free at Sea for just $149 per week and receive five additional packages, including Open Bar, Specialty Dining, and WiFi, which together are worth $3,400.

Highlights of the season in Europe include:

  • 11-day round trip from Portugal to Morocco. With stops in the south of Portugal and Spain, Norwegian Getaway will stop at ports such as Cadiz, Gibraltar, Agadir, or Las Palmas.
  • Ten-Day Northern Europe Cruise on Norwegian Prima from Reykjavik to London (Southampton). It has everything to be a perfect holiday experience, with all the advantages of the new ship from NCL, plus the geysers, the picturesque fjords, as well as the coast of Iceland and Norway, and the vibrant life of Amsterdam.
  • 9-day Mediterranean round trip between Italy, France, and Spain from Barcelona. This journey will take passengers to popular Mediterranean destinations such as Cannes, Rome, and Ibiza.
