NCL's First Small White Ships Popular Then Still Popular Now.

Today I want to feature a blast from the past. Left is an original postcard for Norwegian Caribbean's original White Fleet.

Shown are the Starward, Southward and Skyward as well as the newer Sunward II. Theses very popular ships created a stir when they first entered the cruising scene.

These ships are still around under different owners (Louis Cruise Line, Rio Cruises (now defunct) operating in the Eastern Mediterranean and Leisure World Gambling Cruises in Asia.

  1. Two years ago I traveled on the Starward (Orient Queen at that time), a very fine ship, despite its age, very well maintained.
    At the moment the Louis Aura (current name) is on charter for a French company, making several journeys to Norway.
