Video & Photos: ‘Norwegian Escape’ To Visit

December 29, 2017

The Norwegian Escape is set to make her inaugural call to Bermuda in April 2018, with the cruise ship scheduled to make 22 calls to Bermuda through the year, and according to the recently released 2018 cruise ship schedule, it will be carrying an estimated 6,000 passengers and crew members for each visit.

Built in 2015, the 1,069 foot long ship features an array of offerings and activities including an Aqua Park, casino, nursery, mini golf, fitness center, Sky Rail zip tracks, Snow Room, Spa Salt Room, Thalasso Therapy Pool, Circus School, quarter-mile oceanfront promenade, video arcade, comedy club, live entertainment, more than 25 dining experiences and 21 bars & lounges

In announcing this year’s cruise ship schedule, a local spokesperson said, “The Norwegian Breakaway is being replaced in 2018 with the Norwegian Escape, which has a slightly higher passenger capacity [about 500 more] than the Breakaway. The Escape will make her inaugural call to Bermuda on April 25th, 2018.”

A check of NCL’s website booking engine shows a 7 night cruise to Bermuda from New York onboard the Norwegian Breakaway starts from $689, with costs ranging up to over $4,000 for their luxury suites.

Norwegian Cruise Line has confirmed that the Norwegian Escape, as well as the Norwegian Gem, are scheduled to visit Bermuda in 2019.


The Norwegian Escape is one of dozens of ships due to visit Bermuda in 2018, with the BTA and Government previously announcing that next year Bermuda is expected to receive 180 cruise ship calls bringing approximately 470,000 passengers.

“In 2018, the total projected economic impact of both visitor spending and government tax revenue is $84.8 million with $59.8 million estimated in visitor spending and $25 million in tax revenue,” a spokesperson said.

    Suddenly the new government understands what the words “economic impact” mean.

  2. Tomas says:

    Bermuda infrastructure could not keep up with Breakaway passenger numbers how will it keep up with 500 more flooding off Escape? Millennium was not scheduled to return in 2018 are Bermuda ferries capable of keeping up Dockyard – St. George’s demand?
