Norwegian Jewel to get drydock spiff up before second season Down Under

Norwegian Jewel will sail to popular ports in Australia and New Zealand

Norwegian Jewel will undergo a three-week drydock enhancement in Singapore starting in late October 2018, prior to starting its second Australia/New Zealand season.

Itineraries will feature Australia’s Melbourne, Cairns and Hobart, and New Zealand’s Milford Sound, Wellington and Tauranga. The ship will also cruise the South Pacific islands, Southeast Asia, and operate a trans-Pacific voyage from Vancouver to Yokohama.

The drydock is part of the ‘Norwegian Edge’ multimillion-dollar revitalization program that includes bow to stern refreshments and a new look across many public spaces.

Highlights for the new 2018/2019 season include a 19-day trans-Pacific journey from Vancouver to Yokohama via Alaska and Russia, a 19-day journey to Australia from Singapore with stops at Bali and Komodo Island and a new 13-day South Pacific itinerary.

Plus—back by popular demand—a series of sailings will operate in and around Australia and New Zealand from Sydney, including a seven-day round-trip featuring calls in Tasmania just before the holidays in mid-December.
