2023 is here and with it we say, “out with the old and in with the blue” as we excitedly look forward to many new cruise ships embarking on blue seas this year. On the sea is really the place to be!
Here are ten new ships setting sail this year:
Celebrity Ascent: This fourth ship in the Edge class has the widest range of staterooms and suites of the entire fleet and will feature more than 30 options for dining and beverages. Sail with me on her sister ship from Australia and around New Zealand. Click here for details.
Norwegian Cruise Line Viva: The sister ship to Prima is nearly identical, but features the largest 3 level racetrack at sea, two infinity pools, and 44,000 square feet of outdoor space. Sail with me on Viva through the Mediterranean. Click here for details.
Virgin Voyages Resilient Lady / Brilliant Lady: The adult-only cruise line debuts two ships in 2023, and 90% of the staterooms feature balconies. I've sailed on her sister ships during the summer and for New Year's. If you're looking for a fun vibe, consider Virgin Voyages.
Carnival Jubilee: Named after an early ship in the fleet and raising the bar on family fun, the ship has six fun zones, Bolt! Ultimate Sea Coaster, and Family Feud at Sea.
Royal Caribbean Icon of the Seas: Now the largest cruise ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet, Icon of the Seas will debut two new neighborhoods, the largest waterpark at sea, and the largest pool at sea.
Oceania Cruises Vista: Small, intimate dining experiences include Ember and Aquamar Kitchen. A new category of concierge level staterooms designed for solo travelers is an addition to this ship as well.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises Seven Seas Grandeur: This new cruise ship boasts one of the highest space and crew to passenger ratios across the industry. The famed luxury of the brand stretches to this addition to the fleet.
Silversea Silver Nova: As the first ship in the new Nova class, the Silver Nova features new suite categories, a wellness program, comfort food on the in-room menu, and is one of the most spacious cruise ships in the world.
Seabourn Pursuit: Designed to lead passengers to the most diverse environments around the world, the Pursuit is designed for expeditions, and employs a team of 26 expedition experts to educate and assist passengers through their adventures at sea. Northern itineraries that include Greenland, Iceland, and Norway are highlighted.
Viking Saturn: The adults-only Saturn may be identical to the other ships in the Viking fleet, but fans will appreciate the adults-only atmosphere, a tasteful and refined décor, and three new Nordic itineraries.
