Sail Across the Atlantic on Norwegian Encore in 2019

Norwegian Encore has been causing quite a stir among cruise enthusiasts, and with good reason. A series of buzz-worthy events at the keel laying ceremony revealed not just the biggest race track at sea and largest open-air laser tag course on a cruise ship, but also several encore-worthy performances, such as the Broadway hit Kinky Boots, along with The Choir of Man, and Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical. And that’s just the beginning. So, how to enjoy it all, and as quickly as possible? Be the first to cruise Norwegian Encore on its maiden voyage, an 9-Day Transatlantic Cruise from London in November 2019.

Norwegian Encore will be cruising The Caribbean from Miami in the fall and winter of 2019 before repositioning to New York in the spring and summer of 2020 for Bermuda cruises. But before she begins any of those spectacular itineraries, she will cross the Atlantic Ocean from London on a 9-Day journey that will offer a leisurely opportunity to enjoy the various onboard amenities this beautiful ship has to offer. Just ahead, let’s take a look at this unique sailing on Norwegian Encore.

Cruise from Southampton, England

Board in London

Board your Transatlantic cruise in Southampton (London) on November 2, 2019, to begin your journey from the south coast of England to tropical Miami, Florida. Protected from the frequent storms of the English Channel by the Isle of Wight, Southampton has survived a turbulent history to serve as a principal port of the United Kingdom today. Pay homage to one of the most famous ships to sail these shores at the Mayflower Memorial. Visit the stoic walls of Bargate and the Tudor House Museum before setting sail for the Atlantic.

Enjoy 7 Leisurely Days at Sea

A Transatlantic cruise offers the perfect opportunity to explore this brand new, state-of-the-art cruise ship. Norwegian Encore boasts the largest race track at sea, the largest open-air laser tag course on a cruise ship, an impressive Galaxy Pavilion with a whole virtual reality world to discover, a Kids’ Aqua Park and an Aqua Park for kids at heart. Plus, dazzling performances will have you tapping your feet (or sparkly high-heeled boots) with Kinky Boots, a six-time Tony Award® winner, The Choir of Man, and Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical, taking center stage.

Arrive in New York, New York

Arrive in the Capital of the World. Take a stroll down the famous Central Park. Explore and shop in the always trendy SoHo. Or simply take in the lights and sounds of Times Square.  There’s no shortage of fun and culture to enjoy in New York.

At approximately 169,000 gross tons and accommodating up to 4,000 guests, Norwegian Encore will cruise out of Miami every Sunday and offer 7-day cruises to the Eastern Caribbean, beginning with her first itinerary on November 17, 2019, through April 12, 2020. She’ll begin cruising to Bermuda out of New York in the Summer of 2020. Book your Transatlantic cruise to be one of the first to experience Norwegian Encore in 2019.
