NCL (Norwegian Cruise Line) announced a further new ship order with Meyer Werft, in Papenburg (Germany), for delivery in October 2007. The vessel, currently referred to as hull S.670, will have a capacity of 2.384 lower berths and be a sister to Norwegian Jewel, which is scheduled for delivery in August 2005. Total contract price, including Owner`s Supply, is € 391 million.



The new order follows an order announced in December last year with the same yard for an identical ship to be delivered in February 2007, and becomes the fifth ship now in the pipeline for introduction to the NCL fleet during the next 28 months.

  • Pride of America – delivery in June 2005
  • Norwegian Jewel – delivery in August 2005
  • Pride of Hawaii – delivery in April 2006
  • S.669 (Project name) – delivery in February 2007
  • S.670 (Project name) – delivery in October 2007


Hull S.670 will be the 10th big new ship to join the NCL fleet since the acquisition through Star Cruises in 2000. Since that time the investment in the modernization and expansion of the NCL fleet is close to $ 4 billion. Once the 10th ship is delivered in 2007, over 75 percent of NCL`s inventory of beds will be on ships less than eight years old.



With the order of Number 10 we are well on the way to our goal of having the youngest fleet in the cruise industry until 2010, said Michael Zengerle, General Manager Continental Europe.
