Norwegian Cruise Line will begin a fall and winter sailing schedule departing from Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore.
For the first time in the company’s history, Norwegian will have two ships homeporting from Maryland: Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun. The ships will offer cruises from Baltimore to New England and Canada, Bermuda and the Caribbean.
“Norwegian is one of the top cruise lines in the world, and they recognize that Maryland’s Port of Baltimore is an amazing partner, offering convenient access and outstanding service,” according to Maryland Transportation Secretary Paul J. Wiedefeld.
On its first voyage from Baltimore, Norwegian Sky began a 10-day New England and Canada cruise, with visits to Martha’s Vineyard; Boston; Bar Harbor, Maine; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Sydney, Cape Breton Island; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; Saguenay, Quebec; and Quebec City.
On September 21, Norwegian Sky will sail on an 11-day New England and Canada cruise. In addition, Norwegian Sun will offer warm weather escapes with a five-day Bermuda cruise November 22 and three, 12-day voyages to the Caribbean on November 27, December 9 and December 21.
Norwegian Sky also will return to the Port of Baltimore in September 2024.
The Port of Baltimore has offered year-round cruising since 2009. Prior to the pandemic in 2019, the Port averaged more than 200,000 passengers annually.
Following a cruise industry-wide pause during the pandemic, Baltimore’s passenger counts have strongly rebounded, with its ships currently sailing at full capacity. Baltimore’s cruise terminal is located right off Interstate 95 and offers plenty of onsite parking.
Norwegian Cruise Line sails to 400 destinations around the world across its fleet of 19 ships, and now adds Baltimore to its lineup of more than 50 convenient global homeport options.
