Norwegian Cruise Line is launching a Europe Bonus Day limited time offer for sailings on the line’s award-winning cruise vacations in Europe on Wednesday, September 21, 2011. Named “Europe’s Leading Cruise Line” four consecutive years in a row (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) by the World Travel Awards, Norwegian offers an array of Freestyle Cruising vacations throughout Europe.  Guests who take advantage of the Europe Bonus Day offer will receive $100 per stateroom to spend on board all sailings of six days or longer with stateroom upgrades on select voyages.


Norwegian’s newest and most innovative ship, Norwegian Epic, sets sail on seven-day Western Mediterranean itineraries April 29, 2012 through October 14, 2012 from Barcelona, Spain with ports of call including Naples, Rome (Civitavecchia) and Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy; Nice (Villefranche) and Provence (Marseilles), France.  Guests have the flexibility to begin their cruise in either Barcelona, Rome (Civitavecchia), or Provence (Marseilles) allowing them to customize their vacation to suit their specific needs.


Norwegian Sun offers nine-day Baltic Capitals voyages May 4, 2012 through September 7, 2012 from Copenhagen, Denmark, which is the only cruise itinerary of this length to include an overnight stay in St. Petersburg, Russia.  Norwegian Jade, cruising year-round in Europe, offers seven-day Greek Isles and Adriatic itineraries from Venice, Italy through early October and 10-and 11-day Eastern Mediterranean and Holy Land itineraries from mid-October through April 2012 from Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy.


In an exciting first for the line, Norwegian Spirit will join Norwegian Jade sailing year-round in Europe beginning in April 2012, where she will sail 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruises alternating from Barcelona and Venice through October 13, 2012.  Ports of call will include Athens (Piraeus), Greece; Ephesus (Izmir) and Istanbul, Turkey; Mykonos, Greece; Naples, Rome (Civitavecchia) and Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy; and Provence (Toulon), France.  Norwegian Spirit will then sail nine-day Canary Islands cruises on November 6, 2012 to April 8, 2013 from Barcelona calling on Funchal, Madeira; Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and Arrecife, Lanzarote, Canary Islands; and Granada (Malaga), Spain.


Cruising through Europe is a perfect getaway for celebrating life’s special moments such as honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries, family vacations or reunions.  Norwegian has more private suites and family accommodations than any other cruise line in Europe.  For those looking to indulge in a world of private luxuries, The Haven, suite complexes on onboard Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Jade include a tranquil courtyard, private pool & sundeck, plus 24-hour stateroom service from personal butlers.
