The third annual ocean conservation-themed cruise will be hosted on Norwegian Escape in collaboration with the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF) and Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Guy Harvey Research Institute this fall.
Norwegian Escape in New York City
Sailing on September 15, 2019, from New York, guests on this cruise will meet Guy Harvey. The marine artist, scientist, conservationist, entrepreneur and hull artist of Norwegian Escape will host curated events about ocean conservation on board and at each port of call.
Programming aboard Norwegian Escape will center around sustainability. For example, a panel of marine life experts and scientists from NSU will discuss why it is crucial to keep the ocean clean through conservation and sustainability efforts. During live painting sessions, cruisers will also learn about Guy Harvey’s journey from marine biologist to renowned marine wildlife artist. At each port of call, Guy Harvey and a team of experts will conduct interactive presentations at local schools to inspire children to learn about and take care of the ocean.
With Guy Harvey’s marine life artwork plastered on its hull, Norwegian Escape features over 19 bars and lounges including:
- The District Brewhouse and The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar
- A three-level ropes course and sports complex
- Broadway-style entertainment including After Midnight
- Dining options including the first Food Republic, a modern food emporium featuring global cuisine.
The conservation cruise is associated with Norwegian’s Sail and Sustain program: the company’s dedication to sustainability.
For the first time in three years, the conservation cruise will sail to Canada and New England from New York with visits to Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine; Saint John, New Brunswick; and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In other Norwegian Cruise Line news, the company has announced its 2020/2021 lineup. Norwegian Escape, based in Port Canaveral, will sail on November 21 and offer five-and-seven-day eastern and western Caribbean itineraries.
