Norwegian Jewel To Spend Second Season In Australia & New Zealand
Tuesday 31st October 2017, 9:01am
Following an expansive refurbishment, Norwegian Jewel will spend a second season down under cruising an action-packed series of itineraries taking in the best of Australia including Melbourne, Cairns, Hobart; and New Zealand, as well as itineraries to the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and a transpacific voyage from Vancouver to Tokyo (Yokohama).
In late October 2018, Norwegian Jewel will undergo a three-week dry-dock enhancement in Singapore as part of the Norwegian Edge multi-million-dollar revitalization program. She’ll emerge a nearly new ship for her Australian season with bow to stern refreshments and a new look across many of the ship’s public spaces.
“Norwegian Jewel’s Australia and New Zealand sailings have received a great deal of anticipation and excitement from guests both locally and internationally,” said Andy Stuart president and chief executive officer for Norwegian Cruise Line. “The region is a bucket-list destination for many of our guests with a warm culture, lush lands, sandy beaches, action-packed adventure and more. We are thrilled to be returning to this dream destination with the iconic Norwegian Jewel looking as if she were a brand new ship.”
Highlights for the new 2018/2019 season include a spectacular 19-day transpacific journey from Vancouver to Tokyo (Yokohama) via Alaska and Russia; a 19 day journey to Australia from Singapore with stops in Bali and Komodo Island; a new 13-day South Pacific itinerary and – back by popular demand – a series of sailings in and around Australia and New Zealand home-porting from Sydney, including a seven-day round-trip itinerary featuring calls in Tasmania just before the holidays in mid-December.
Norwegian Jewel boasts 15 dining options including the line’s signature specialty restaurants including Cagney’s Steakhouse serving up the finest cuts of Premium Black Angus Beef, Le Bistro, an intimate upscale French bistro and Teppanyaki, the home of sizzle and surprises with authentic Japanese Hibachi. The ship also boasts 15 bars and lounges featuring Norwegian favorites such as Sugarcane Mojito Bar, Maltings Whiskey Bar, a poolside bar for afternoon cocktails at sea and many more.Courtesy Of Norwegian Cruise Line
