Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the innovator in global cruise travel, marked its debut in South Africa today as Norwegian Jade became the first of its 18 ships to homeport in Cape Town, South Africa.

Norwegian Jade will sail on a 12-day Extraordinary Journey around the coast of South Africa and Namibia with seven ports of call, including Richard’s Bay, Durban, Mossel Bay and Lüderitz.

South African guests aboard Norwegian Jade will be able to holiday without the worry of visas and flights and enjoy NCL’s unique ‘Freestyle Cruising’ concept, which allows the ultimate freedom and flexibility at sea. A smaller ship at 2,402 guest capacity (dual occupancy), Norwegian Jade is packed full of features that enable guests to make the most of their precious vacation time.
