NCL celebrates Norwegian Escape’s return to Europe

Itineraries include calls at ports in Italy, Greece, Malta and France

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) vessel Norwegian Escape has completed its first eastern Mediterranean voyage since 2015.

The ship, which is the first Breakaway-plus class vessel to sail in Europe for a full season, is based in Rome for the summer, and offers sailings ranging from seven to 11 nights.

A total of eight NCL ships are sailing in European waters this summer, including Norwegian Prima, the line’s first Prima Class vessel.


Norwegian Prima will join Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Gateway, Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Star.

NCL president and chief executive Harry Sommer said: “Europe has always been a bucket-list destination for travellers from all over the globe and is a key cruise destination for NCL.

“We strive to offer our new and loyal guests a wide range of destinations and itineraries. We’re excited that this year’s Europe season is our most extensive to date, with eight ships and more than 100 ports of call.”
