NCL Changes Addition to Fleet

March 6, 2001
NCL has flip-flopped a new addition to its fleet. The SuperStar Leo, currently sailing in the Far East under the Star Cruises moniker, was intended to join its American ship-cousins in December, cruising Hawaiian itineraries. Instead, North American cruisers will get the not-quite-finished 2,300-passenger SuperStar Libra -- a newbuild which was designed with the line¹s freestyle concept (open seating dining, boutique restaurants, et al) in mind. The swapping is a bit confusing: SuperStar Leo, which carries just under 2,000 passengers, was only launched three years ago and according to an earlier NCL announcement was "purpose built" for "Freestyle Cruising."
