The Norwegian Sky

Norwegian Cruise Line today announced its Summer 2017 deployment via a company release.

“Guests sailing on Norwegian Cruise Line in Summer 2017 can explore the world through a variety of cruises to spectacular destinations, all while enjoying the freedom and flexibility that only a Norwegian cruise can offer,” said Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line’s president and chief operating officer. “Guests can feel free to cruise to the best of Bermuda and the Bahamas on four beautiful ships, including the recently refurbished Norwegian Gem, or experience the scenic beauty of Alaska on some of the youngest ships in the industry.”


Norwegian will continue to offer the youngest fleet in Alaska, with three ships sailing in the summer of 2017: Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Jewel, sailing seven-day Glacier Bay and Sawyer Glacier itineraries, respectively, from Seattle; and Norwegian Sun, sailing seven-day Alaska cruises alternating between Vancouver, British Columbia and Seward, Alaska.

New for Summer 2017, Norwegian will offer three longer itineraries. On Norwegian Jewel, guests can choose from a eight-day Sawyer Glacier cruise from Vancouver to Seattle on May 5, 2017, featuring port calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Icy Strait Point, Alaska; Victoria, British Columbia; and a cruise to the Sawyer Glacier. Also on Norwegian Jewel, guests  can book a ten-day Ultimate Alaska from Seattle to Vancouver on September 23, 2017. 

There is also a 14-day Ultimate Alaska from San Francisco to Vancouver on Norwegian Sun, departing on May 15, 2017.
