Norwegian Cruise Line to return to Jamaica from October
Norwegian Cruise Line will once again be operating Jamaica holidays for travellers after a six-year break. Two of the cruise line's vessels, the Norwegian Pearl and the Norwegian Sun, will be calling at Ocho Rios from October, 2011.
After taking a six-year break from Jamaica, Norwegian Cruise Line will be returning to the Caribbean island from next month.
Passengers will once again be able to take Jamaica holidays aboard two Norwegian Cruise Line vessels with the first call of the year scheduled to be Ocho Rios on 19th October, 2011.
The Norwegian Pearl and the Norwegian Sun will both be calling at the Jamaican port during the 2011/2012 season with a total of 34 scheduled calls.
Throughout the entire season, the two ships will bring an estimated 68,000 passengers to Jamaica holidays where they can enjoy warm hospitality, delicious Caribbean cuisine, a warm tropical climate and beautiful white sand beaches.
Royal Caribbean International has recently moved their ships from Ocho Rios to the brand new port of Falmouth in Jamaica due to financial interest. Norwegian Cruise Line will be sharing Ocho Rios with Carnival Cruise Lines who operate year-round cruises to the port.
Located on the northern coast of Jamaica, Ocho Rios is one of the main ports of call for cruise liners providing Caribbean holidays for travellers from all over the world.
The Caribbean island of Jamaica is rich in culture, music, history and tourist attractions such as Dunn’s River Falls, the Blue Mountains, the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, and the renowned Seven Mile Beach in Negril.
Situated in the Caribbean Sea, south of Cuba, the tropical island boasts luxury Jamaica hotels and resorts with leading brands such as Sandals Resorts, Hilton Worldwide, Ritz-Carlton and Iberostar operating properties surrounded by beautiful natural surroundings.
During holidays in Jamaica, tourists can engage in some fascinating scuba diving adventures beneath the surface of turquoise crystal-clear ocean waters to breathtaking underwater sites where they can explore sunken wrecks, colourful coral reefs and an array of marine species.
Norwegian Cruise Line has been operating Caribbean cruises since 1966 and to date, the company has eleven ships in its fleet.
The Norwegian Pearl has staterooms and suites for 2,394 passengers and facilities including a bowling alley, rock climbing wall, 16 restaurants and cafes, 13 bars and lounges, a casino, South Pacific Spa, swimming pools, and a fitness centre.
