Norwegian Cruise Line's select 2017-2018 autumn/winter itineraries feature a variety of Caribbean & Bahamas cruises from New York, Port Canaveral and Miami; immersive 10-night Canary Islands cruises from Barcelona; as well as the company’s exclusive seven-night, intra-island Hawaii sailings from Honolulu.

The new itineraries go on sale on 23 March.

Caribbean, Bahamas & Florida

Norwegian’s newest and largest ship, Norwegian Escape, will continue to sail seven-night Eastern Caribbean sailings every Saturday from Miami year-round, bringing guests the best that this region has to offer with calls in St Thomas, Tortola and Nassau, Bahamas. Featuring 28 dining options, Tony Award-winning Broadway entertainment, the brand’s first nursery with supervised care for young cruisers ages six months to two years, and much more.

Norwegian Escape will continue to offer seven-night Eastern Caribbean sailings from Miami

Guests who wish to explore the Western Caribbean from Miami can enjoy Norwegian Getaway, which will return to the US from the Baltics in autumn 2017 and sail seven-night cruises every Sunday from 29 October to 22 April, 2018. Ports of call include Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras; Norwegian’s newest and most spectacular destination Harvest Caye, Belize; Costa Maya and Cozumel.

Norwegian Epic will also return to the US in the autumn of 2017 to once again homeport seasonally in Port Canaveral through the winter, offering three-, four- and seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean and Bahamas itineraries to fit any schedule or itinerary preference. The recently refurbished ship will feature Norwegian’s private Bahamas island destination, Great Stirrup Cay, on all of her itineraries from Port Canaveral. As a part of The Norwegian Edge investment programme, Great Stirrup Cay will receive new features, amenities and island-wide enhancements over the next 16 months, and will welcome guests in 2017 to what will be practically an all-new destination.

Epic will sail alternating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral from 5 November, 2017, through to 21 March, 2018.  Epic’s seven-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary will be a beach-lover’s paradise with stops in Tortola, St Thomas, and Great Stirrup Cay. Guests can choose to soak-up the sun or opt for adventurous excursions on Norwegian Epic’s Western Caribbean itinerary, featuring stops in Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; and Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.

Epic will also offer guests who may not have the time to get away for a week-long holiday the perfect opportunity for a quick escape in March 2018 with a series of three- and four-night Bahamas itineraries with stops in Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay.

Guests looking for a longer escape can sail away on the recently enhanced Norwegian Gem, part of Norwegian’s Jewel-class, from 21 October, 2017 through to 17 April, 2018, on alternating 10- and 11-night Eastern Caribbean cruises from New York. Ports of call include San Juan, St Thomas, Philipsburg and Tortola.  The 11-night cruises also feature a call in Basseterre, St Kitts. 

For those guests looking for a short cruise option, Norwegian’s 3- and 4-night cruises on Norwegian Sky will continue to sail from Miami year-round, offering an all-inclusive experience featuring a free open bar on all sailings.


Norwegian Spirit will enter dry dock in early 2017 for significant enhancements and will remain in Europe for autumn and winter 2017, sailing the Canary Islands with departures from Barcelona. From 23 November, 2017, to 24 April, 2018, Norwegian Spirit will sail an immersive 10-night Canary Islands, Spain and Morocco itinerary. Ports of call on this exotic itinerary include Casablanca, Las Palmas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Funchal and Malaga and Alicante.

Canada & New England

In addition to the previously announced seven-night Canada & New England roundtrip cruises from New York City during prime autumn foliage season, Norwegian Gem will also offer an exclusive 10-night Eastern Canada and Quebec cruise from New York, with calls in Halifax, Nova Scotia; an overnight in Quebec City; Corner Brook, Newfoundland; and Sydney, Nova Scotia.


The recently-refurbished Pride of America will continue to sail her very popular seven-night Hawaii itinerary departing from Honolulu every Saturday through to to April 2018. Offering more than 100 hours of in-port sight-seeing time, the only ship to sail the islands features an itinerary with calls that include an overnight in Kahului, Maui; Hilo, Hawai`i; Kona, Hawai`i; an overnight in Nãwiliwili, Kaua`i; and an afternoon cruise past the breath-taking Nãpali Coast.
