Spotlight on Europe

NCL has been awarded the accolade of Europe’s Leading Cruise Line for 11 consecutive years at the prestigious World Travel Awards. And now we are building on this success by bringing an unprecedented six ships to Europe in summer 2019. That means a bigger choice of exciting itineraries, more fabulous ports to discover and a ship to suit everyone’s style. Highlights include Norwegian Getaway returning to the Baltic Sea cruising from Copenhagen and Norwegian Pearl sailing from Amsterdam to scenic ports in Northern Europe. You can cruise roundtrip from the United Kingdom’s historic port of Southampton aboard Norwegian Spirit and see more of the Med than ever. With unparalleled freedom and choices on board, cruising with NCL gives you no better way to experience the history, culture, landmarks and flavours of Europe.

Discover the best of the Western Mediterranean

Step on board the ever-popular Norwegian Epic in vibrant Barcelona or Civitavecchia, the port of Rome, and in just one week you can tick off a bucket list of must-see destinations. Take Naples, for example. This bustling, frenetic city is the home of pizza and gateway to the postcard-perfect island of Capri and wonderfully preserved Ancient Roman city of Pompeii.

The Ponte Vecchio over the Arno River in Florence, Italy

You’ll discover history at every turn in Tuscany and a shore excursion from Livorno will put you at the heart of Renaissance Florence with its masterworks of art and architecture or Pisa, setting for the famous Leaning Tower. The chic resort of Cannes makes a fitting contrast. And then there’s the island of Majorca, famed for its beach resorts and dramatic scenery in the Tramuntana Mountains.

On board Norwegian Epic you can relax in a wide choice of staterooms, from Studios, designed and priced for solo travellers to ultra-luxe Suites in the exclusive enclave of The Haven By Norwegian®. There are 21 exceptional dining options including speciality restaurants serving up authentic global cuisine. And when night falls, catch the Broadway musical smash Priscilla, Queen of the Desert or get into the vibe of an authentic recreation of Liverpool’s Cavern Club. From only £939 pp^ for 7-days, book now to avoid disappointment.

Encounter the treasures of the Baltic Sea

Our flagship in Europe this summer is Norwegian Getaway, a striking, contemporary ship with outstanding facilities. With two relaxing days at sea you can chill out in the luxurious Mandara Spa® and stroll along The Waterfront, a quarter-mile oceanfront promenade lined with restaurants and bars. Indulge in 25 dining experiences, including three dedicated seafood venues. And enjoy dazzling Broadway performances – Million Dollar Quartet and Burn the Floor.

Join Norwegian Getaway in Copenhagen – an upbeat, fun city for a pre- or post-cruise stay – and head for fascinating cities that border the Baltic Sea, 9-days starting from only £1,439 pp. Top of everyone’s list is St. Petersburg where an overnight stay on board lets you take in the magnificent architecture, the countless art treasures of the Hermitage Museum and even enjoy a night at the Russian ballet. Medieval Tallinn is a fairy tale city with cobbled streets and alleys, domed buildings and towers that has changed little in 600 years. From its roots as a fortress in the mid-13th century Stockholm now boasts many landmarks including the imposing City Hall and the Vasa Museum built to house a must-see 17th-century warship. This rewarding itinerary also takes in Helsinki and the German port of Warnemünde from where you can enjoy a shore excursion to the capital, Berlin.

Norwegian Getaway in Stockholm, Sweden

Explore the Greek Isles, Italy and more

This 11-day cruise sailing from the port of Rome, Civitavecchia, mixes up a Mediterranean cocktail of historic cities and idyllic islands. Highlights include Dubrovnik where the towering city walls offer sensational views, Montenegro’s Kotor set in a magnificent bay at the end of Europe’s southernmost fjord and Monte Carlo with its millionaire lifestyle. Mykonos Town is quintessentially Greek with whitewashed houses, sky-blue-painted shutters, winding cobbled streets, windmills and waterfront bars in Little Venice, while Santorini’s postcard village of Thira built high atop multi-coloured cliffs has some of the finest views in the Mediterranean. Add in the Italian ports of Naples and Livorno and you’ve got all the contrasts of the Med in one wonderful holiday. There is a choice of two departure dates in summer 2019 offering slightly different itineraries, starting from £1,769 pp^.

The Greek island of Santorini

Whichever you choose you will discover that cruising the Med is a breeze on board Norwegian Pearl. Completely refurbished in 2017, you’ll have 16 delicious dining options to choose from, 15 bars and lounges to relax in and great entertainment including Legends in Concert tribute acts. And for the ultimate in accommodation at sea, choose a super-spacious, three-bedroom Garden Villa in The Haven®.
