NCL Deploys Second Ship Year-Round in New York
Norwegian Cruise Line, which pioneered the 21st-century "year-round from New York" cruise concept, makes headlines once again with the news that Norwegian Spirit will join Norwegian Dawn next year.

Norwegian Spirit will, in essence, take over Norwegian Dawn's 10- and 11-night "exotic Caribbean" itineraries, beginning in November 2005. The ship will call at a blend of Eastern and Southern Caribbean islands, such as St. Thomas, Antigua, Barbados, St. Maarten, Grenada, Dominica, and Tortola.

That frees Norwegian Dawn up to try out a different routing. While Norwegian Dawn will continue to offer its pioneering seven-night Florida voyages (with a couple of Bahamas calls to satisfy U.S. cabotage laws), in most weeks of the year, the ship will feature occasional 10- and 11-night trips that will focus on either Eastern or Western Caribbean ports. So, for instance, the Eastern-influenced itinerary will feature calls at St. Thomas, Tortola, St. Maarten, San Juan and the Bahamas. The Western-oriented trips will also stop at the Bahamas, as well as Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Honduras, Belize and Cozumel.

A handful of these sailings are offered in October and November, beginning in 2005 -- but the majority are on tap for the deepest of winter months.
