NCL Announces Pearl and Gem Will Join the Family

January 3, 2006

Norwegian Cruise Line, which is on quite the newbuilding binge over the next few years, announces today that it has named its two newest ships Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Gem. The ships, currently under construction, will launch in February 2007 and October 2007 respectively.

Beyond featuring the most evolved of NCL's "Freestyle Cruising" options -- particularly a range of restaurants as well as Courtyard Villas -- few other details have been announced about these twins in particular. Stay tuned though; as always we'll keep you posted.
