14 JUL 2017: Norwegian Cruise Line has had a partnership with Second City Theatre since 2005, with three of the ships offering comedy sketches and improvisation, including Breakaway, Dawn and Gem. That partnership will come to an end in 2018.

Beth Kligerman, a producer who oversees casting for the cruise line shows said, “Not long ago NCL built its own facility in Tampa, Florida, and they have been producing in-house creations, including productions of such musicals as ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ and ‘Rock of Ages.’ ”

Three more cast changeovers on cruises will take place between now and Jan. 3.

New Sailings

Norwegian Sun will reposition to Port Canaveral and offer all-inclusive four day cruises to Havana, Cuba and Key West, and three-day cruises to the Bahamas.

Norwegian Jewel will sail to Alaska in summer 2018, with itineraries that include seven- and nine-day sailings from Seattle, Seward and Vancouver.

            
“Alaska continues to be one of the most popular destinations we sail to around the world. We are thrilled to be significantly increasing capacity in the region in summer 2018 with the redeployment of Norwegian Jewel and the inaugural season for Norwegian Bliss, providing more opportunities for our guests to experience a vacation of a lifetime in this incredible pristine destination,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer for Norwegian Cruise Line.

“Our all-inclusive model aboard Norwegian Sky has been very well-received and as we evaluated the opportunity to expand upon that concept, we felt that Port Canaveral was the ideal location to offer our guests a value-rich on board experience and exciting action-packed ports-of-call, including an overnight call in Havana, Cuba.”


Following her fall/winter season in South America and a dry dock enhancement, Norwegian Sun will spend her summer 2018 season sailing all-inclusive cruises from Port Canaveral, offering four-day itineraries that call on Key West and Havana, Cuba, along with three-day cruises to the Bahamas.
