The cruise company revealed its plans to set sail, starting in the summer of 2021, from New York, Los Angeles, Port Canaveral and Miami.
It also announced that its newest ship, Norwegian Encore, would debut in Alaska this summer, in place of Norwegian Bliss.

For the president of the shipping company, Frank del Río, ‘I am pleased to continue our great cruise return with the plans already announced for 23 of our 28 ships in our three brands from July 2021 until the beginning of 2022’.
‘We want to thank Governor DeSantis and the state of Florida for fighting in support of our industry. His leadership helped bring CDC to the table. We are currently in communication with their staff and legal advisors to ensure that we can offer the safest cruise experience for our passengers departing from the cruise capital of the world, ‘del Río said.
Norwegian Encore will make her West Coast debut, replacing the previously announced Norwegian Bliss for the 2021 summer cruise season in Alaska.
