Norwegian Cruise Lines announces new ships

Date Posted: 11 Sep 2006
Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) has announced that it has entered into agreement for the delivery of three new cruise liners between 2009 and 2011.

The total cost for the three new ships will be in excess of ?2 billion to Norwegian Cruise Lines, which will all have space for approximately 4,200 passengers.

Norwegian Cruise Lines has said that the first two ships already have concrete delivery periods, with the first new liner due in the fourth quarter of 2009 and the second in the second quarter of 2010. The third ship, which is optional, would be delivered in the first quarter of 2011.

"This order, placed in NCL's 40th anniversary year, marks the culmination of our plans to transform this great company," said Tan Sri K T Lim, Chairman of NCL and Star Cruises.

"By 2010 there will be almost nothing left of the NCL we bought in 2000 except the name and the people and in place of the old, mixed fleet we inherited, there will be the youngest, most innovative and exciting fleet in the industry."

The new cruise ships are currently all under the project name F3, but the plans are for the liners to feature the "richest" cabin mix of any Norwegian Cruise Lines ship to date, including private balconies for all outside staterooms.
