Sponsored: NCL places focus on Asia and Australasia with refreshed sailings


Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has enhanced its offering in Asia and Australasia with a refreshed range of sailings on board Norwegian Sun

It comes as the line encouraged agents to push its exotic cruise collection for 2024 and 2025 to consumers now, with sailings selling out fast.

In Australia and New Zealand, guests can discover new adventures at every turn, from wildlife to urban life and everything in between.

They can gaze at the Sydney Opera House, witness the unspoiled beauty of the South Island’s waterfalls and fjords, and explore the artistic and cultural legacy of the Aboriginal and Maori peoples.

Meanwhile, in Asia, they will feel the energy of Tokyo or take in the futuristic, otherworldly skyscrapers in Dubai which pierce the skies, or uncover temples and palaces tucked into Cambodia’s untouched landscapes.
