More NCL News: Company Announces New Ship Intro Schedule
NCL President Colin Veitch very nearly overshadowed today's joyful launch of Pride of Aloha (everybody already knew the ship would celebrate its July 4 christening on schedule!) by announcing two other major pieces of news.

First: Following the January flooding accident of Pride of America at its building dock in a German shipyard, NCL has at last concluded negotiations with banks, insurance companies and the shipyard itself. As such, Veitch confirmed today that the company was expecting delivery of Pride of America -- which will join Pride of Aloha as the second ship in NCL America's Hawaii-based fleet -- on June 6, 2005.

After a transatlantic crossing -- and some warm-up cruises along the East Coast and through the Panama Canal, it is expected that Pride of America will officially launch its Hawaii itineraries in July 2005.

Next up? NCL has placed its second order for a new U.S. vessel. The ship, to be called Pride of Hawaii, will be built at Germany's Meyer Werft shpyard. Plan for a delivery date of April 2006.

"Our venture," Veitch said today, "is now well underway."
