Norwegian Cruise Line is set to return to Asia and Australia in winter 2016-17 with the recently refurbished Norwegian Star departing from Singapore and Hong Kong together with Sydney and Auckland.
President and chief operating officer Andy Stuart said: “We are truly excited to offer these incredible new itineraries to our guests, who now have the opportunity to explore areas of the globe that we haven’t called on in many years and some that we’ve never before visited.”
“Norwegian is taking guests to their dream destinations, where they can indulge in new tastes, cultures and experiences, along with the flexibility to unpack once and the freedom to explore many distinct destinations during one holiday-of-a-lifetime.”
On 20 November 2016, Norwegian Star will sail a 21-night journey from Dubai to Singapore, one that will include the brand’s first visit to India with an overnight in Mumbai and stops in Mormugao (Goa), Mangalore and Kochi.
Throughout December 2016 and January 2017, Norwegian Star will do a series of 11- and 14-night sailings in Southeast Asia, departing from Singapore and Hong Kong respectively.
Norwegian‘s return to the region follows similar announcements from Carnival and Royal Caribbean.
Norwegian Epic will leave the Mediterranean in November 2016 and return to Florida to sail the Caribbean, with Norwegian Spirit replacing Norwegian Epic as the brand’s year-round European ship.
