Nauticus’ cruise season sets sail as 2 cruise ships set to arrive in Norfolk

More than 5,000 passengers are expected to arrive in Norfolk as Nauticus welcomes its first back-to-back cruise calls since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Sunday, April 10, the 2,400-passenger Norwegian Gem will make its maiden call to Norfolk. It’s scheduled to arrive at 10 a.m. and leave at 7 p.m.

Then, on Monday, April 11, the Norwegian Getaway returns with its longest port visit so far – it will arrive at 11:30 a.m. and depart at 6 p.m.

The two ships are both part of Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet. It’s the world’s third-largest cruise company and will call on Norfolk 25 times throughout 2022, marking the largest port-of-call commitment ever for the city.
