Increasing air connectivity between New Zealand and North America, coinciding with Norwegian Prima’s debut season in the region, is already generating interest from the Kiwi trade, says NCL’s director of sales Australia and New Zealand, Damian Borg.
Prima is about to embark on a Northern European season, with a debut cruise to Iceland, but will also have an extended Americas season September through March this year with departures from Galveston, Miami and New York.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), will return to Asia for the 2023-2024 cruise season, with 12 port-rich sailings ranging from 10 to 12 days on board Norwegian Jewel. She returns to Asia for her second season in the region following a 16-day repositioning cruise from Seattle, Washington to Tokyo, via Alaska.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is offering New Zealand cruisers significant savings on worldwide voyages, including deals for 2022 European summer sailings as well as 2023 voyages for forward-planners.
Guests will save up to 35% off their cruise fare while also gaining all five of NCL’s popular ‘Free at Sea’ offers.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has kicked off the 2022 Alaskan cruise season with Norwegian Bliss from the Port of Seattle. This is the first of any cruise ship to visit Alaska this season as well as the first of five Norwegian Cruise Line vessels to cruise The Last Frontier through to October 2022.
New Zealand travel agents should be learning as much as they can about the new cruising product on offer to prepare for the ‘bounce back’ in customer demand. And they should be confident that the bounce will come, as it has in the rest of the world.
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) will continue to support the New Zealand trade from its Sydney office in the meantime, but will re-evaluate the need for a local office as business builds back up.
Ben Angell, vice president and managing director NCL Asia Pacific, says the company continues to evaluate the situation across the whole region. The NZ office was a recent Covid casualty.
‘However, we provide strong support out of Sydney and we have connections with the trade here. That’s right for us at the moment but we’ll look again as things develop.’
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), has released a collection of port-intensive South Pacific itineraries for 2022. Sailing aboard the recently refurbished Norwegian Spirit, NCL’s new voyages will visit destinations such as New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji, American Samoa, French Polynesia and Hawai’i.

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has a Take 5 offer, providing up to US$2900 in value for a limited time. The promotion sees all stateroom categories across all ships and destinations receiving all five of its popular ‘Free at Sea’ offers, with 50% reduced deposits also available.
