Norwegian Cruise Line seeks to sail from JaxPort starting in November 2025

Norwegian Cruise Line plans to sail from Jacksonville beginning in November 2025 if the Jacksonville Port Authority board approves it during a special meeting on Tuesday at 3 p.m., News4JAX news partner Jacksonville Daily Record reported.

If approved, Norwegian Cruise Line would offer seasonal cruises from Jacksonville to the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean aboard the Norwegian Gem, JDR reported. The cruise ship holds 2,394 guests and would sail from November to April through 2028.

JaxPort’s CEO Eric Green Green told the Jacksonville Port Authority board in a meeting on Jan. 22 that the incoming cruise company, which wasn’t named at the time, was seeking approval from the JaxPort Cruise Terminal. Documents for the deal couldn’t be completed in time for the meeting, JDR reported.

He said the company wanted to be put on the Monday agenda, but documents for the deal couldn’t be completed in time for the meeting. Green also said the cruise line was “anxious” to finalize the agreement and requested a special meeting to expedite the approval, the JDR reported.

Board Chair Daniel Bean agreed to set a special meeting when the agreement documents were prepared.
