Norwegian Announces New Season of Sailings for Summer 2025

It’s the most wonderful time of the year –– the announcement of our newest sailing season, of course. And this lineup is more exciting than ever before. Norwegian’s 2025-2026 itineraries, now open for sale, span across 18 ships and offer the perfect mix of new exploration and deep dives (literally, if you love scuba) into must-see favorites.

Asia is a major highlight this season –– from the futuristic gardens of Singapore to Tokyo’s famed fall foliage, while South America sailings offer beaches, mountains, cities, and snow! Discover new and extended routes to NCL favorites like Europe, Alaska and The Caribbean. And raise a glass, because we’re hitting vineyards all over the globe – from Cape Town to Tuscany to Chile to Santa Barbara.

Whichever corner of the world you want to explore next, Norwegian has an itinerary that sails beyond your expectations.

Expand Your Horizons in Asia & Africa

Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and flavors of different cultures, and experience nature’s bounty on a dream vacation to Asia or Africa.

Sail on Norwegian Dawn as she makes her debut in Singapore — where the past and future coincide in the most amazing ways. Explore the ancient Chinese Quarter, visit colorful Hindu temples, take in the city’s contemporary skyline and sink your teeth into some of the best food on the planet.

If seeing Africa is on your bucket list, now is the time. Dawn’s season starts and ends with unforgettable, long itineraries (20- & 21- day journeys) that visit ports along Western Africa like Senegal, Dakar, and the Ivory Coast, as well as embarkations from Cape Town, Port Louis, and Doha. Take a day safari from Richards Bay or visit Addo Elephant National Park near Port Elizabeth. Explore world-class vineyards in the fertile Cape Winelands and hang out with adorable African penguins at Boulder Beach. Every port provides unforgettable adventures, and every one of our ships promises marvelous days at sea.

We’ve also added a highly requested “open-jaw” journey from Cape Town to Mauritius — allowing guests to further explore each region on their own schedule.

When it comes to show-stopping visuals, it's hard to beat Japan in the fall. Norwegian Sun will kick off the season with Tokyo's famed fall foliage, before spending this beautiful season throughout Southeast Asia. Watching Japan's trees turn vivid shades of red, orange and yellow is such a famous activity, there's actually a name for it - Momijigari, which translates to "red leaf hunting." This will be a season of firsts for Sun, with callings to South Korea, Taiwan, Bintan Island, Indonesia and more.

We’d Like to Introduce You to Antarctica

Embark on the adventure of a lifetime when you sail on board Norwegian Star even further south in South America all the way to Antarctica. Your journey to the southernmost continent leaves from lively Buenos Aires and stops at unforgettable destinations along the way. Take in the charm and architecture of Montevideo, explore the lush forests of Tierra del Fuego National Park in Ushuaia and march alongside famous penguins in the Falkland Islands. Then treat yourself with a massage at Mandara Spa. Keep an eye out for blue whales, elephant seals and nesting seabirds as you sail the South Pole by day and fill your nights with delicious meals and amazing shows back on board. You won’t forget a single moment of an Antarctica cruise with Norwegian.

Meanwhile, Norwegian Jade will spread her wings (er, propellers) when she makes her first-ever stop in San Diego, before heading down to Lima (Callao), Peru — the starting place for an unforgettable journey to Machu Picchu.

And get ready for the transcontinental adventure of a lifetime. Beginning October 2025, Norwegian Star will leave from London (Southampton) and travel to Lisbon, the Canary Islands, then Rio as she segues into 2026 Antarctica sailings.
