Norwegian Cruise Line celebrates successful premiere: Expands to South Africa and Namibia

The international cruise line Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has this winter opened a new route to South Africa and Namibia. It is the first time ever that NCL sails in this part of the world. The South African route is a milestone for the cruise giant, and the 2024 winter program is now being expanded with a number of extraordinary voyages to Africa.

The cruise ship Norwegian Jade has just completed NCL's first season along the South African and Namibian coasts. Over the course of 12 days, guests from all over the world have experienced both Cape Town, Mossel Bay, Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) and Richards Bay in South Africa, as well as Lüderitz and Walvis Bay in Namibia. Norwegian Jade is the first of NCL's total of 18 ships to sail in the region. In the 2024 winter season, Norwegian Dawn will be deployed on a number of extraordinary voyages to selected African countries. The modern ship has room for 2,340 passengers and will have home ports in Cape Town in South Africa and Port Louis in Mauritius. - As part of putting the guest first, we are continuously working to expand the selection of destinations so that our guests can have even more extraordinary and unforgettable experiences. Our new Africa trips are a good example of this. Here, bucket list destinations such as Cape Town and Mauritius are combined with hidden gems such as Pomene, Maputo in Mozambique and Fort Dauphin in Madagascar, says Kevin Bubolz, Managing Director Continental Europe, Israel, Middle East & Africa for NCL - With almost 12 hours of stops in each port, there is plenty of time to explore and enjoy the exotic destinations. The new journeys are already among our fastest-selling in 2024 and attract guests from almost 60 countries worldwide, Kevin Bubolz continues.
