Hello, Amsterdam: Norwegian Cruise Line Expands European Presence

Norwegian Cruise Line recently announced their first season of cruises from the Netherlands, in Amsterdam for its European debut of Norwegian Pearl. This 2,400-passenger ship has increased the brand’s presence to six ships in the region!

Norwegian Pearl’s homeport for the 2019 summer season is in the Port of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The iconic canals and avant-garde Dutch architecture aren’t the only attractions passengers will experience. Passengers will set sail for 10-14 days and visit some of the most sought-after destinations in the region like the Greek Isles; the Mediterranean; and the French, Spanish and Italian Riviera until this October. From Aug. 26 to 30, this vessel will host the first European Jon Bon Jovi Runaway to Paradise cruise, a one-of-a-kind concert- and festival-at-sea cruise experience.

“As the only North American cruise line to sail Europe year-round, we are very excited to offer guests new and interesting itineraries full of history, culture and diverse landscapes while they enjoy our various ships in the region,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.
