Norwegian adds a fourth Alaska ship in 2020

Article-Norwegian adds a fourth Alaska ship in 2020

Norwegian Sun will be sailing from Seattle on nine- to 12-night cruises
Norwegian Cruise Line is returning Norwegian Sun to Alaska in 2020, joining the previously announced lineup of Norwegian Joy, Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Jewel.

Longer itineraries

Sailing from Seattle, Norwegian Sun will offer NCL's most extensive Alaska itineraries. The nine- to 12-day cruises will visit Sitka, Icy Strait Point, Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier, Holkham Bay, Juneau and Ketchikan, as well as Victoria, BC.

Norwegian Sun's program begins May 21, 2020.

It will have been a three-year hiatus for the ship in the region. In 2018, Norwegian Jewel replaced Norwegian Sun in Vancouver, BC.

Norwegian Sun subsequently underwent a three-week enhancement as part of the Norwegian Edge program and was redeployed to Port Canaveral, where it alternated short cruises to Havana and Key West with Bahamas getaways. The Cuba program was recently ended due to an abrupt change in US policy.

Three ships from Seattle, one from Vancouver

In 2020, Norwegian Joy and Norwegian Bliss will be sailing from Seattle as well, while Norwegian Jewel continues to be based in Vancouver, BC.
