Norwegian Cruise Line Sets Sail From Baltimore

Norwegian Cruise Line is setting sail from the Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore and will have two ships homeporting from Maryland — Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun – for the fall and winter season.

The ships will offer cruises from Baltimore to Canada and New England, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

Maryland Transportation Secretary Paul J. Wiedefeld said: “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.”

Wiedefeld continued: “The arrival of Norwegian Cruise Line heightens the impact of cruising as an economic engine for our state. The industry already generates nearly 400 jobs and $63 million in annual local business revenues.”

Norwegian Sky is currently sailing a 10-day Canada and New England 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 Sept. 21, Norwegian Sky will sail on an 11-day Canada and New England voyage. 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 Nov. 27, Dec. 9 and Dec. 21.

Norwegian Sky will also return to the Port of Baltimore in September 2024.

David J. Herrera, president of Norwegian Cruise Line, said: “ Today marks a history-making moment for Norwegian Cruise Line, as we sail from the vibrant city of Baltimore for the first time. Our voyages from the Port of Baltimore offer guests the best that cruising on the East Coast has to offer, with a convenient homeport option that allows them to experience both the breathtaking fall foliage of Canada and New England and warm weather winter escapes in Bermuda and the Caribbean.”

Said Herrera: “As we continue to grow our fleet of now 19 ships, we actively look for new opportunities and communities to introduce the Norwegian Cruise Line experience. This fall, we’ll also celebrate the one-year anniversary of our Military Appreciation program, where we honor active and retired service members with exclusive offers and onboard experiences. Given the strong military community in Baltimore and the surrounding areas, we look forward to having these service members participate in our program and join us at sea soon.”
