NCL Sees a Pearl and a Gem in its Future

NCL Corporation said its two newest ships—now under construction at Meyer Werft in Germany—will be named Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Gem. The two ships are Norwegian Jewel-class ships and will be delivered in February 2007 and October 2007 respectively. Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Gem will be the ninth and 10th big new ships to join the NCL fleet since the fleet modernization began in late 1999, according to Colin Veitch, president and CEO of NCL Corporation. Veitch said that once Norwegian Gem is delivered in 2007, more than 80 percent of NCL's capacity will be modern, keeping NCL on track to offer the youngest fleet in the industry by 2010.
