Default Re: Re: NCL to buy SS United States

The asbestos has been removed. Like Warren said, she is pretty much just an empty steel and aluminium shell now. You can count on having at at least her forward engine room removed but I have no idea what they will do with the other engines. Seems like it would be much better to remove them and replace them with something more cost effective. That is one of the big problems with the Norway, it still used bunker oil as fuel.
