Norwegian Sun to sail from Port Canaveral in 2010

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On February - 10 - 2009

For the first time in more than 11 years, Norwegian Cruise Line will homeport a ship seasonally at Port Canaveral, Florida beginning October 2010.

The 1,936-passenger Norwegian Sun, purpose-built for Freestyle Cruising, will sail alternating seven-day eastern and western Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, departing every Saturday from October 9, 2010 through April 16, 2011.

“As part of our homeland cruising initiative, we are always looking for attractive ports in which to base our ships,” said Kevin Sheehan, NCL’s president and CEO. “By bringing Norwegian Sun to Port Canaveral, we are offering cruisers in Central Florida and to those vacationing in Orlando quick and easy access to Freestyle Cruising. In addition, Port Canaveral offers our guests a wide range of pre- and post-cruise packages with the ability to visit a number of family attractions.”

Norwegian Sun’s seven-day eastern Caribbean cruise will stop in Nassau, Bahamas; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. The ship’s seven-day western Caribbean will call in Cozumel, Mexico; Santo Tomás de Castilla, Guatemala; Belize City, Belize and Key West, Florida. Since there is no port repetition between the two itineraries, they can be easily combined to create a port-rich 14-day Caribbean tour.
