NCL Offers Norwegian Pearl Preview
Norwegian Cruise Line, which had already announced that a bowling alley would be the most unique feature of its still-under-construction Norwegian Pearl, now offers additional details about the ship. In deck plans just released on NCL's Web site, the 93,502-ton, 2,384-passenger ship (a sort-of sister to Norwegian Jewel and Pride of Hawaii) will introduce a climbing wall in its sports area on Deck 14. It will climb up the funnel like those found on Royal Caribbean's Voyager- and Freedom-class ships.

Another new feature is the Bliss Ultra Lounge Night Club (which will house the bowling alley).

Other changes basically include a revision of the ship's layout. In this case, the shopping area will be located just beyond the forward staircase and the Crystal Atrium and Java Cafe will have a new configuration.

The deluxe owner's suite -- a 1,195-square-ft. cabin featuring living room, dining room, private courtyard with pool, hot tub and sundeck that was introduced on Pride of Hawaii -- will continue on here but Pearl will get two of them.

The ship, taking shape in a covered building hall at Meyer Werft Shipyard, is slated for launch in November and will initially operate five- and nine-night cruises from Miami.
