The NCL group operates a fleet of eleven ships under two brands: Norwegian
Cruise Line, with nine ships, offers mainstream cruises in the Caribbean,
Alaska, Europe, Bermuda, and Asia-Pacific. Orient Lines, with two ships,
offers destination-oriented cruises in Europe in the summer months and
worldwide, as far as Antarctica, in the fall-through-spring. Both NCL and
Orient Lines market primarily in North America but also extensively in the
UK, Europe, South America, and Asia.
The Pride of America - the first of the two Project America vessels - is
presently under construction at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Germany. The
81,000-grt and 2,100 lower berth vessel is expected to commence Hawaii
inter-island cruising next year with a "Best of America" theme. The second
Project America vessel, which is currently sailing as Norwegian Sky will be
renamed Pride of Aloha and will reflect a strong Hawaiian theme which will
be accomplished after a refurbishment in September 2004. Both ships will
sail under NCL's new US-flag brand - NCL America sm.
The Cruise Ferries brand which was launched in 2001 presently comprises the
m.v. Wasa Queen.
