thanks,
Marc,

The Norwegian Dream and the Norwegian Majesty will be sold to Cyprus based Louis Cruise Lines. When the transfer will occur is still up in the air.

The Norwegian Crown was sold to Fred Olsen cruises a couple of months ago.

Take care,
Mike

Mike, I saw that PoA was (to be) sold in addition to Dream and Majesty. The source is not the best which is why I was looking for confirmation. The report referenced a Lloyd's List article which I can't find on their public site.

Marc,

I found that article and that Pride of Aloha will go to Royal Caribbean and be placed in the fleet of Pulmantur.

I'm sort of bummed about this. I remember sailing the Norwegian Sky (before it was PoA) and really enjoyed it.

I haven't seen any official announcement from Royal Caribbean.

Take care,
Mike

Hey Mike. Was the Norwegian Sky formerly the SkyWard? If it was, I sailed her three or four times when she was brand new. Loved that ship.

Nope: The Norwegian Sky was "originally" supposed to be the Costa Olympia, sister ship to the Costa Victoria, but the German ship yard Bremer Vulkan went bankrupt and NCL made an agreement with Lloyd Werft to finish the ship and it became the Norwegian Sky.

The Skyward was a much older and smaller vessel. The Skyward is not the Leisure World for New Century Cruises in Singapore.

Take care,
Mike
