As part of NCL’s phased return to service, many (but not all) ships are impacted by the latest temporary suspension. Norwegian cruises canceled include Norwegian Joy, Pride of America, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Sun, and Norwegian Spirit. Also part of the announcement is the October 24, 2021 sailing on Norwegian Bliss.
We have extended our voluntary temporary suspension for many, but not all, of our ships to their estimated return dates which range from October 2021 through January 2022. In conjunction with our third return to sail announcement, we have extended our voluntary temporary suspension for eight of our seventeen ships, listed below. Fortunately, we have announced Return to Sail plans in the Caribbean, Alaska, and The Mediterranean for the five remaining ships; Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Jade, and Norwegian Bliss.Norwegian

Guests impacted by the latest round of Norwegian cruises canceled, specifically those with an active reservation, will automatically receive a refund of their cruise fare in the original form of payment for the amount paid. Additionally, guests who have not already received a 10% off coupon for a previously canceled sailing will receive a coupon for 10% off their next NCL cruise. The coupon will be valid one year from issue date and can be applied to published sailings through 12/31/22.
If you used a future cruise credit as full or partial payment on one of the canceled Norwegian cruises, the full value of the FCC used will be reapplied to your Latitudes account. In the case of a reservation that was paid using a combination of payment types, the refund will be applied to the original form of payment — FCC back as FCC and credit card payments back to original card.
