Newly refurbished Norwegian Jade returns to ex-UK cruising

Norwegian Jade returns to Southampton

Norwegian Cruise Line’s fully refurbished Jewel-class ship returned for a summer season of North European sailings from Southampton on Sunday.

Norwegian Jade, one of the company’s 15 ships, will feature all inclusive cruises from Southampton, marking Norwegian’s return to offering regular cruises from England for the first time since 2010.

Norwegian Jade has undergone a three-week bow to stern drydock adding two new restaurants and two new bars and lounges, an upgraded design and modern décor in many public spaces, and a complete refurbishment of all staterooms with new flooring, wall coverings, artwork, furniture and soft goods.

'We’re thrilled to welcome Norwegian Jade back to be home-ported in the UK again,' said Christian Boell, md Norwegian Cruise Line Europe, Middle East and Africa.

'The feedback from the market has been tremendous on these new ex-UK sailings, so we are now looking even beyond this season and look forward to 2018, where we will see Norwegian Jade back in Southampton again,' he added.

From May 14 to June 20 and August 7 to October 16, 2017 as well as from 25 April 25 to June 29 and August 25 – September 29, 2018, UK guests can embark on a series of Western Europe, North Cape, Iceland and Norwegian Fjords sailings from/to Southampton,  as well as mini cruises to Hamburg.

With Norwegian Getaway departing from Copenhagen to the Baltics in 2017 and Norwegian Breakaway in 2018, it brings a total of five Norwegian Cruise Line ships sailing in European waters in 2017 and 2018.
