Norwegian Cruise Line today announced that a 91,000-ton vessel on order at the Meyer Werft shipyard (Germany) will be NCL’s largest, accommodating 2,300 passengers and 1,150 crew, and built at the maximum size to fit through the Panama Canal. The vessel will enter service in October 2002.
will offer NCL passengers something unique in big-ship cruising - open seating in the main dining rooms, very high staffing level up to the magical top-end resort ratio of one staff per room, or in ship terms one crew member per cabin, and many other unique features.On the staying connected front, the new ship will continue the innovative design of Norwegian Sky, which entered service last year as the first ship with an Internet Café and which is still the only vessel in service today with both an Internet Café and computer ports in every passenger stateroom. Every stateroom will feature digital flat screens which will serve as both TV and computer monitor.
