NCL Schedules Dawn Premiere
Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship -- Norwegian Dawn -- will debut in December. The 91,740-ton ship, currently under construction at the Meyer Werft Shipyard in Germany, is slated to arrive in New York December 14 and undergo a variety of inauguration festivities before setting off on its first regular sailing, out of Miami, on December 21.

The 2,224-passenger ship, a sister to the company's unique-to-cruising Norwegian Star, emphasizes "freestyle dining" with ten different onboard restaurants. These include three traditional cruise ship restaurants (though each offers a different take, from an elaborate to a lighter, more contemporary menu), and then eateries specializing in steak and tapas not to mention the cuisines of the Orient, Italy and France. There will also be a Kids Cafe -- with pint sized tables and chairs -- serving the usual casual fare.

The ship will spend the winter sailing alternating eastern and western Caribbean itineraries from its Miami base. In the spring, Norwegian Dawn heads north, where it will offer Bahamas itineraries out of its New York home port.
