Norwegian Cruise Line has started a cruise-tour product for Europe and will launch its first one in Italy in 2013.
The tours will supplement cruises on Norwegian Jade's seven-day Mediterranean or Adriatic cruises from Venice or Norwegian Epic's seven-day cruises from Civitavecchia.
The tours will add four to eight days to the length of the trip, Norwegian said.
Norwegian is partnering with Gate 1 Travel to offer the tours. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
