NCL released a statement regarding the cancelations in Asia. The company said that "due to the unpredictable and ever-evolving regulations governing international travel and cruising in Asia," they had made the difficult decision to relocate Norwegian Sun from Asia to Europe, offering sailings to the Canary Islands.
"All Norwegian Sun sailings from October 11, 2022, through April 25, 2023, have been canceled.
"We thank our guests and partners for their patience and understanding and apologize for this inconvenience. We remain loyal to Asia, both as a destination and as a source market. With a mild climate, beautiful beaches, volcanic landscape, and exciting cities - the new winter cruises from NCL in Europe combine the most beautiful sides of the islands of eternal spring with stops on the Andalusian and Portuguese coasts, Madeira and Morocco in a very special way.”
