Default I Miss (NCL) Norway!!!!

With all the discussion about today's megaships (Oasis etc), I happen to come across a picture from the 1990's of my Mom (who passed this year) and her travel buddy onboard NCL Norway on formal night on the grand stairway on the Jazz Cruise...that year, The Jazz Cruise honored the American Film Institute (AFI) Jazz Legends in Film from the 1930's and 1940's (her era)

The Norway was the Oasis of the Seas of it's time...because she had been convert from the SS France, she had the "bones" of grandeur of elegance of a trans Atlantic crossing...I can still remember the dead end hallways, the soot from the smokestacks when you tried to layout on the deck, the envy of the other cruiseships when we pulled into port, , the excitement of dressing up for formal night and having your picture taken.....so sad on her demise

Do you have fond memories of one specific cruise ship
