Cruise Brothers and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) Cruises

Norwegian Cruise Line offers a casual vacation experience without sacrificing service. In fact, service is paramount on Norwegian ships. With almost one crewmember per cabin, you can indulge in the luxury of first-rate attention that's available 24 hours a day.

The highlight of any cruise, however, is the destinations. Norwegian puts the world at your feet. Choose from three- or four-night tours through the sunny Caribbean where you can delight in tropical beaches, exciting water sports and phenomenal bargain shopping. Perhaps a seven-night cruise to discover the ancient civilizations and breathtaking wildlife of Buenos Aires is more your style. The ice towers and dog sledding adventures of Alaska may be calling to you. Norwegian Cruise Line can take you to the four corners of the world for sights and escapades you've never experienced before.

What could be better? How about pre- and post-cruise excursions? Only Norwegian Cruise Line gives you the added bonus of extending your vacation with pre- and post-cruise itineraries in some of the most exciting port cities in the U.S.

Norwegian Cruise Line is continually offering special cruise packages so you'll get the best bargains when you call the Cruise Vacation Center office at (800) 803-7245. If you're looking for comfortable cabins, a casual dress code and the most exciting destinations available, call now to book your Norwegian Cruise Line vacation.

The Fleet of Norwegian Cruise Ships

Norwegian CruisesNCL operates under three brands: Norwegian Cruise Line, NCL America and Orient Lines. The nine current ships (plus three in NCL America) range from ultra-contemporary to older and refurbished. Cumulatively, in 2005, the ships sail to some 200 ports around the world. NCL ships can be divided into the following categories:

Older - Expanded and/or Refurbished - Vessels. Numerous ships in NCL's fleet have been expanded via the stretching of their mid-sections. These include Norwegian Dream (launched in 1992), Norwegian Majesty (1992) and Norwegian Wind (1998). Norwegian Crown (1998) hasn't been stretched, but has recently received extensive refurbishments.

Regardless of the improvements, NCL has announced that it will cull these ships from the fleet by 2010, to be replaced by designed-for-Freestyle vessels. According to President and CEO Colin Veitch, NCL's mission is "to offer the youngest fleet in the industry by 2010."

Norwegian Cruise Line includes the following ships:

"Freestyle"-Designed Ships. Norwegian Sky (now Pride of Aloha), built in 1999, was the first ship in the fleet to incorporate "Freestyle Cruising" -- though Norwegian Sun, launched in 2001, was actually the first vessel to be designed with the concept in mind (the big difference is that the latter has two more restaurants than the former). The procession continued with relative sister ships Norwegian Star, which debuted in 2001, and Norwegian Dawn, which premiered in 2002.

NCL has nabbed an additional "Freestyle"-designed ship; parent company Star Cruises has traded in its SuperStar Leo in exchange for Norwegian Sea (which left NCL's fleet in fall 2005). Leo, renamed Norwegian Spirit, moved to New York in December 2005. Norwegian Jewel made its debut in August, 2005, introducing upscale courtyard villas and the "bar central" concept.

NCL's newest ship, Norwegian Pearl, was added to the fleet in December 2006. The vessel sports a bowling alley, part of a sports bar and nightclub concept, and a rock-climbing wall.

NCL America. This spin-off subsidiary offers inter-island Hawaii sailings on the company's trio of American-flagged vessels, Pride of America, Pride of Aloha and the new Pride of Hawaii (launched April 2006), sister ship to the Norwegian Jewel. All three ships have been designed specifically for "Freestyle Cruising" and have all-American crews. However, in early 2007, NCL announced that because of increased competition in the Hawaii market, continuing staffing problems and large losses related to its NCL America product, the company would move Pride of Hawaii into the NCL fleet (the ship will be renamed Norwegian Jade and deployed to Europe in spring 2008).

As of February, 2008, NCL America will continue with Pride of America operating the seven-day roundtrip cruises from Honolulu, and Pride of Aloha operating 10- and 11-day cruises, which include longer stayovers on some islands and trips to Fanning Island in the Republic of Kirabati.

For a cruise line that's consistently making news, there is an even bigger development on the horizon for NCL. The line has announced that it will build 150,000-ton, 4,200-passenger twins -- as yet unnamed - to be delivered in 2009 and 2010. The ships will be expanded versions of Norwegian Jewel.

Norwegian Cruise Line offers a hybrid cruising experience, mixing traditional with innovative features, amenities and ambience. Decor is a mix of glitz and traditional. Service can be inconsistent. The dress code is flexible and casual, (not quite as elegant as country club casual). It's not unusual to see T-shirt clad passengers dining among the tuxedoed.

All the ships have multiple restaurants, bars and lounges. NCL is serious about entertainment and offers exuberant musical productions, live bands, lounge singers, piano bars and D.J.'s in the discos. The casinos are a good size and offer the expected games. The requisite libraries, game rooms, shuffleboard, Ping-Pong, art auctions, perfume seminars, gaming lessons and port talks are available every day. Steiner-run Mandara Spas offer luxe treatments at luxe prices, with recent additions of teeth whitening and acupuncture sessions. All have fitness centers.

Well-trained counselors staff the children's programs; age-appropriate activities range from parties and video arcades to kid-friendly learning sessions. There are teen centers, discos and kids' pools too. The newer ships in the NCL fleet are particularly kid-friendly, and although standard cabins run substantially smaller - at an average of 160 square ft. - than those on other new vessels, NCL does boast a large number of adjoining staterooms and family-centric suites.

All NCL Cruise ships have multiple dining venues ranging from French bistros to steakhouses and sushi bars. Room service is available around the clock. Specialty dining generally comes with $10 to $20 cover charge and/or a la carte menus ranging from $8 to $25. All specialty dining rooms require reservations. Another don't miss is NCL's signature Chocoholic's Buffet, held once per cruise on each ship. It's a magnificent sight to behold.

While vacationing on a Norwegian Cruise Line take advantage of the internet cafes are which are currently located on all of the NCL Cruise ships. Internet services are offered at 75 cents per minute, but packages bring the per-minute charge down to as low as 40 cents. Wireless Internet services are also available on all NCL Cruises ships; laptops are available for rent. There's a myriad of Internet-related charges onboard, so it's important to read the information carefully before logging on. Newer ships offer in-cabin internet access.

Smoking is allowed in the staterooms (including private balconies), but NCL recommends that guest exercise caution at all times. Smoking is also permitted in designated areas in most bars (the non-smoking Bliss Ultra Lounge, Sports Bar and bowling alley on Norwegian Pearl is an exception and may be heralding a new era of non-smoking venues) and outside on open decks. All other areas - including show lounges, restaurants and food service areas - are non-smoking.

NCL is the leader in roundtrip seven-day cruises from U.S. and Canadian ports with its homeland cruising program. Ships sail seasonally from Boston, Charleston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Miami, Seattle and Vancouver, and year-round from New York. NCL America homeports in Honolulu, currently offering seven-day cruises on Pride of Aloha, Pride of America and Pride of Hawaii (through to February 2008 for POH).

In addition to Hawaii, Alaska and the Caribbean, NCL sails to Mexico, Europe and South America. In 2008, the line will deploy three large ships to Europe, offering cruises to the Baltics, Eastern and Western Mediterranean, and British Isles.

The crowd is diverse -- primarily American -- ranging in age from young families to old folks, and a good many with special needs. NCL has cultivated a broad appeal, which means its ships are oriented to both families and couples, and appropriate for gay and lesbian travelers too.

Geographically speaking, there are quite a few passengers from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, England and Canada (notably, all English-speaking countries), but longer Caribbean cruises have been attracting a fair amount of passengers from Germany and Italy as well.
