New latitudes for NCL ships

Norwegian Cruise Line made several changes to its North American fleet deployment for 2007.

In the fall, the line will send the Norwegian Sun to Miami from New Orleans, move the Norwegian Spirit to New Orleans from New York and put its upcoming ship, the Norwegian Gem, in New York beginning in December.  

In Hawaii, the fleet will be reduced to its three American-flagged ships when it loses the Norwegian Wind, which will be sent to parent company Star Cruises' Asia fleet.

NCL America's Pride of Aloha will switch to longer, 10- and 11-day interisland Hawaii itineraries.

Every fourth Pride of Aloha cruise will include stops at Fanning Island in the Republic of Kiribati.

Andy Stuart, NCL executive vice president of sales and marketing, said that guests on NCL's Hawaii ships typically stay in the Islands for more than one week and have asked that the port-intensive itineraries also include days at sea. The Pride of Aloha itineraries will have two days at sea.
