I was delighted to read that NCL purchased these great Ocean Liners, giving them a new lease on life.
The United States held the record for speed in the early 1950's, crossing the Atlantic in 3 days.
I hope that NCL will retain the vintage decor of these ships, albiet a total rebuild.
I look forward to cruising on these venerable beauties. Folks will have the opportunity to experience or relive life on an ocean liner, rather than a mega cruiseship.
Hopefully these ships will feature traditional cruises---------not freestyle. The exception being disembarkation, when guests may await departure in the comfort of their cabins.
