NCL Selling Marco Polo

Norwegian Cruise Line announced on Monday the sale of Marco Polo from its Orient Lines brand. The ship will sail under the brand until late March when it will transfer over to its new owner, which has yet to be announced. The 800-guest Marco Polo is currently owned by Star Cruises, NCL's parent company. Colin Veitch, president and CEO of NCL Corp., said the sale of Marco Polo was imminent with the arrival of NCL's new Freestyle ships. "The timing of Marco Polo's departure always revolved around finding a good next owner," Veitch said. NCL took delivery of Norwegian Pearl in Dec. 2006 and Norwegian Gem will join the fleet in October of this year.
