Norwegian Cruise Line’s new flagship Norwegian Bliss to sail from Miami in winter 2018

Norwegian Bliss, arriving in spring 2018, will set sail for Miami after her inaugural summer season in Alaska, to seasonally homeport in the Cruise Capital of the World in winter 2018.

From 17 November, Norwegian Cruise Line’s new 168,000-ton flagship will sail seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises each Saturday from PortMiami, featuring calls in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands; Tortola, British Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas.

Norwegian Bliss’s custom design will offer guests the freedom and flexibility to create their ideal experience at sea, with a wide variety of accommodations including luxurious suites in The Haven by Norwegian®, Studio staterooms for solo travellers with virtual ocean views, and new connecting staterooms ideal for large groups and families traveling together.

The ship will also feature two observation lounges, including one exclusive to guests of The Haven, perfect for whale watching in Alaska or taking in sunsets in the Caribbean.

Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, said: “As the Caribbean is our most sought-after winter destination, there was no question that Norwegian Bliss would sail from Miami.

“This incredibly dynamic ship will offer stunning ocean views from almost every venue, spacious and thoughtfully designed accommodations that fit with every cruiser’s needs, and a variety of exciting and engaging venues that will continue Norwegian’s history of innovation in providing the ultimate dining and entertainment experiences at sea.”

En route to Miami following the completion of her debut Alaska cruising season, Norwegian Bliss will sail a five-night Pacific Coastal sailing from Vancouver to Los Angeles on 30 September, with an overnight stay in Vancouver and calls in Victoria, British Columbia and San Francisco.

Norwegian Bliss’s seven-night Mexican Riviera cruises will feature calls in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas, adding Ensenada, Mexico on its eight-night itinerary. She will depart Los Angeles on 3 November for a 14-night journey to Miami through the new locks of the recently expanded Panama Canal, with calls in Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, Mexico; Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera), Costa Rica; and Cartagena, Colombia.
