Norwegian Readies Biggest Deployment in Europe

Cruise line’s biggest ever European presence to feature “freestyle” cruising

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced its biggest ever European deployment for the 2012-13 season with four of its “freestyle” cruise ships, including two year-round. Norwegian Spirit will join Norwegian Jade sailing year-round in Europe, beginning in April 2012. This is also the first time Norwegian Spirit will sail in Europe, offering 12-day Grand Mediterranean voyages in summer and autumn, along with nine-day Canary Islands cruises in winter and spring.

The company’s largest and most innovative ship, Norwegian Epic, and Norwegian Sun will continue cruising seasonally from Barcelona and Copenhagen, respectively. These cruises are now on sale to Norwegian’s travel partners and the general public. “Europe is one of the world’s fastest growing cruise markets and one where Freestyle Cruising is very well received,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s chief executive officer.
