NCL and Bermuda Agree to 10-Year Deal

Norwegian Cruise Line will be calling in Bermuda; the cruise line reached an agreement with the Bermuda government to deploy two of its newest ships in Bermuda from 2009 through 2018. New York and Boston will serve as departure points and the ships will sail at least 22 voyages per season. The agreement also calls for NCL to continue as the only cruise line to sail from Boston to Bermuda. Colin Veitch, NCL's president and CEO, said that Bermuda is one of the line's most popular destinations and that demand from U.S. cruisers wanting to visit Bermuda has been on a steady rise. In 2009, Norwegian Spirit will sail from Boston to Bermuda, while Norwegian Dawn will sail from New York to Bermuda. Also in 2009, Norwegian Majesty will sail to Bermuda from Charleston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Visit []. (DE)
