Los Angeles to Welcome Norwegian Joy

By Karen Robes Meeks

Next winter, the Port of Los Angeles will be welcoming Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Joy, a nearly 4,000-passenger vessel that will be cruising the Mexican Riviera and Panama Canal markets.

The Norwegian Joy, which was built last year, is expected to receive $50 million worth of enhancement work before it comes to Los Angeles, where it will be able to plug into electrical shore power, according to the port.

“We’re extremely pleased that Norwegian Joy will be calling at the Los Angeles World Cruise Center,” said Port Executive Director Gene Seroka. “This newly enhanced, world-class vessel will be extremely popular as the Mexican Riviera and the Panama Canal re-emerge as premier cruise destinations. It will also offer a great new convenient departure option for Southern California.”
