Norwegian Jewel will be sailing another season in Australia and New Zealand in fall 2018/19 after completing a major dry dock.

The NCL cruise ship is sailing another season in Australia and New Zealand in fall 2018/2019 and offering some stunning itineraries. Norwegian Jewel will first undergo a major dry dock in late October 2018 before starting its deployment in the Pacific. The ship will receive a ton of upgrades with new features and enhancements in Singapore.

Andy Stuart president and chief executive officer for Norwegian Cruise Line, said:

“Norwegian Jewel’s Australia and New Zealand sailings have received a great deal of anticipation and excitement from guests both locally and internationally.”

“The region is a bucket-list destination for many of our guests with a warm culture, lush lands, sandy beaches, action-packed adventure and more. We are thrilled to be returning to this dream destination with the iconic Norwegian Jewel looking as if she were a brand new ship.”

Norwegian Jewel will sail a 19-day transpacific cruise from Vancouver to Tokyo (Yokohama) via Alaska and Russia. The season will then kick off with a series of itineraries including calls in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

The vessel will be all shiny and new before its second season down under. The refurbishment is part of the “Norwegian Edge” program which is multi-million dollar investment in updating the fleet.

We expect further details to be released about the dry dock in the future. Norwegian Jewel is 91,700 gross ton vessel and can carry over 2,300 guests at double occupancy. The ships last dry dock was completed in May 2014.
