|Norwegian Jewel sailing at sea.|
But wait a minute, NCL, can she make a pit-stop in Baltimore, Maryland for a hot minute? Why not? The Port of Baltimore is truly becoming very popular with an array of cruisers--so much in fact a new port location is being discussed to host more ships into the blue crab epicenter (full story here). Back in the day when no one sailed ships from my home-town, I remembered seeing Norwegian Cruise Line here with seasonal service despite the apprehensiveness from other cruise lines. They sailed Norwegian Crown^ and Norwegian Majesty^ to Bermuda. Can we get the NCL love back to Baltimore via Norwegian Jewel? I think she'll be a cruisetacular addition (just my 2 cents, having cruised her a few years back).
Well, if it isn't in the next year or two, and even if Norwegian Jewel doesn't swing into the Chesapeake Bay, I hope NCL comes back to give Charm City some love soon! If you haven't cruised from the Port of Baltimore, you need to get hip with the program ASAP! You can sail to Canada/NewEngland*, Bermuda, the Eastern Caribbean, Florida, or the Bahamas on either Royal Caribbean International Cruise Line's Enchantment of the Seas, or Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Pride. What do you think? Do you see NCL fitting in well with cruisers from Charm City? Share your thoughts below or on facebook. What are you waiting for? Your ship awaits, Bon Voyage!
^These ships are no longer sailing within the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet.
*This destination is only offered service to via Royal Caribbean International Cruise Line's Enchantment of the Seas. Otherwise, either cruise line can provide you with service to the other destinations mentioned.
