|Artists Rendering of Norwegian Cruise Company / Nordic Cruise Company's New Mega-Yacht.|
A new, ultra-luxury, small ship cruise line has order the first two of potentially 6 ships.
The first two vessels are expected to be delivered in 2019 / 2020. Under the banner of Norwegian Cruise Company / also sometimes referred to as Nordic Cruise Company, the 180 passenger, all suite ships, will be ice strengthened for polar operations. Passengers will be pampered by a crew of 140. Branding itself as an ultra-luxury adventure cruise line, the 90 suite vessel will be spacious starting at 35 meters. The first ship is expected to be named the M/Y Caroline. M/Y standing for Mega-Yacht.
The Oslo, Norway based cruise company is said to be establishing an office in Miami.
It is expected that Norwegian Cruise Line will have issues with the name of the new company - so I suspect by the time the operation starts - a name change will be needed.
