Norwegian Cruise Line opened the books on sailings in 2021 and 2022 and introduced some 20 new destinations. 

CEO Harry Sommer said the early opening will offer guests “more time to plan their long-awaited vacations” and promote “destination daydreaming.”

Among the new destinations are areas of Antarctica as well as ports in Namibia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, Greenland and Mozambique.

The Norwegian Star will make its first voyage to Antarctica in 2021, leaving from Buenos Aires for a season of 14-day trips that visit five ports in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and the Falkland Islands.

The Star will also make Norwegian’s first visit to Greenland in 2022  on two sailings that will visit Nuuk, Qaqortoq and Nanortalik on back-to-back 10- and 11-day sailings from Reykjavik, Iceland.

Norwegian will sail its first roundtrip cruises from Cape Town, South Africa, on 12-day Norwegian Jade sailings starting in December 2021 and visiting Luderitz and Walvis Bay, Namibia; and Durban, South Africa. There will be overnight calls in Cape Town and Richard’s Bay, South Africa.

The Norwegian Sun will become the line’s first ship to visit Nagoya, Beppu and Himeji, Japan; Manila and Coron, Philippines; Kota Kinabalu and Melaka, Malaysia; Muara, Brunei; and Kampot, Cambodia, on a November 2021 sailing.
