Beginning next year, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Spirit will join Norwegian Dawn in weekly stops at Port Canaveral. In addition, the Norwegian Majesty will make a call in Port Canaveral next year, bringing the total number of port calls for Norwegian Cruise Line to 45 in the next two years. “Port Canaveral offers a wide variety of options to our guests. The shore excursion program we’ve introduced with Norwegian Dawn has been very successful and we’re looking forward to offering those options and more to our passengers onboard Norwegian Spirit and Norwegian Majesty next year,” says Andy Stuart, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Passenger Services for Norwegian Cruise Line. Both Norwegian Dawn and Norwegian Spirit are homeported in New York and feature Canaveral as a weekly stop on their Florida and Bahamas itineraries. Norwegian Dawn stops at Port Canaveral every Tuesday from May to August. Norwegian Spirit is scheduled to call in Canaveral every Tuesday from February through May then every other Tuesday May through October. Norwegian Majesty will reposition from Boston, calling at Canaveral on Oct. 20, 2006. “We appreciate Norwegian Cruise Line’s confidence in Port Canaveral as a gateway to the Space Coast and Central Florida as a port of call,” says Port Authority CEO Stan Payne. “We plan to announce some exciting initiatives during the next few months that will further enhance our status as a port-of-call destination.” “With our area’s beaches, the Kennedy Space Center, and the Orlando attractions, we hope our port-of-call visitors will want to return again and again,” says Ray Sharkey, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Canaveral Port Authority. “Norwegian Cruise Line was the first company to introduce year-round cruising from New York and we are very glad they did,” says Bobby Giangrisostomi, Port Canaveral’s Vice President of Business Development.
