Norwegian Cruise Line cancels more cruises, as other cruise lines aggressively push to restart cruises with or without requiring vaccinations.
In addition, Norwegian has made a last-minute change of ships for their late-summer Alaska cruises. Norwegian Bliss was originally scheduled to cruise from Seattle round-trip through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Instead, Norwegian Encore will take over the route.
With Norwegian Encore taking over Alaska cruises for Norwegian Bliss, October 24, 2021 will see Bliss repositioned to Los Angeles for Mexican Riviera cruises. The new Alaska cruises aboard Encore will visit Juneau, Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point and Skagway.
Cruising days will include a slow meander through Endicott Arm to view Dawes Glacier or instead, spend a day at Glacier Bay.
