NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line’s 9th ship to restart operations, Norwegian Joy, commenced sailings from PortMiami (Florida) to the Caribbean.

The itinerary includes a series of Caribbean cruises to Roatan Island (Mahogany Bay-Coxen Hole, Honduras), Costa Maya (Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya), Cozumel (Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya) and Harvest Caye Belize (NCL private island). The voyages are weekly roundtrips available through April 23.

An 11-day cruise takes place on December 23, visiting Willemstad (Curacao Island, Dutch Antilles), Oranjestad (Aruba Island, Dutch Antilles), Castries (St Lucia Island), St Johns (Antigua), Saint Thomas Island (Charlotte Amalie, USVI) and Puerto Plata (Dominicana, Taino Bay).

According to Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of NCL, with the launch of their 9th ship, they now had more than two-thirds of their berths in operation.

"Norwegian Joy’s comeback is perfectly timed with the recent launch of our ‘Greatest Deal Ever’ and latest deployment of itineraries, we’re making it even easier for our guests to book a well-deserved getaway offering them more destinations and ships to choose along with the best value at sea.”
