Norwegian to showcase three ships in UK 'Try Before You Buy' initiative
Norwegian Cruise Line is offering UK travel trade partners the opportunity to showcase Norwegian Star, Escape and Epic to customers in another round of its Try Before you Buy initiative.

Trade partners will be able to take advantage of ten ship visit opportunities across ten dates throughout September and October 2015. Visitors will have the chance to meet the sales team, tour the ship, and enjoy a four-course lunch on-board.

Customers can look at Norwegian Star calling at eight regional UK ports during a British Isles itinerary, whilst Norwegian Epic will showcased in a visit to Southampton after her return from dry-dock with new on board entertainment features before embarking on an Iberian Peninsula itinerary to Barcelona, and Norwegian Escape will be launched to the UK market in Southampton as part of inaugural celebrations in late October.

Christian Boell, managing director EMEA, said: ‘After introducing the Try Before you Buy initiative at the Norwegian Getaway inaugural in January 2014, we knew that it was something that we wanted to make bigger and better. And, having three ships in the UK in September and October presented the perfect opportunity.’
