Norwegian Cruise Line announced earlier that Norwegian Bliss, the brand’s sixteenth ship, will set sail for the cruise capital of the world after her inaugural
summer season in Alaska, to seasonally homeport in Miami in winter 2018.
Beginning on November 17th, 2018, Norwegian Bliss 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 will 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.
“We are incredibly excited to announce that we are once again bringing our newest and most innovative ship to Miami, with the arrival of Norwegian Bliss in November 2018,” said Andy Stuart, chief executive of Norwegian Cruise Line.
“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.”
At a ceremony held at the company’s corporate offices in Miami, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings president Frank Del Rio and Stuart shared the exciting news, alongside Miami-Dade County officials.
En route to Miami following the completion of her Alaska cruising season, Norwegian Bliss will sail one five-night Pacific Coastal sailing from Vancouver to Los Angeles on September 30th, with an overnight stay in Vancouver and calls in Victoria, British Columbia and San Francisco.
