Norwegian Cruise Line Adjusts Deployment For Norwegian Jade

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that it is implementing changes to the upcoming winter 2011/2012 season for the Norwegian Jade. The line is cancelling the 2,402-passenger ship’s 11-day Eastern Mediterranean & Holy Lands and 10-day Eastern Mediterranean sailings from late November 2011 to mid-April 2012, citing weak bookings in the wake of political unrest in the region.


Affected passengers can transfer to the same itineraries that the Norwegian Jade will still operate between 15 October and 16 November 2011, or between 20 October 2012 and 17 April 2013. Alternatively, they have the option to sail on any voyage by the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet between now and 31 December 2012. 


In place of the cancelled voyages, Norwegian Jade will instead undergo a 12-day drydock refurbishment beginning 26 November 2011. She then repositions to Barcelona on 8 December 2011 to operate a series of 9-day Canary Island cruises through to mid-April 2012, before moving east to Venice on 21 April 2012 for her summer cruise season.


Norwegian Cruise Line joins another major line, Royal Caribbean International, in redeploying its ships from the Eastern Mediterranean for winter 2011/2012. Originally scheduled to sail in the region, the latter’s 3,114-passenger Navigator of the Seas will now operate in the Caribbean.
