Default United States

For all the details go to my posting on the NCL board, but they have just purchased the United States!!! Just in the nick of time too since the underbidder was a scrap company. She will stay American flagged and sail with the Independence (all fixed up) on coastal voyages. They also plan on building two more ships in Germany, re-flagging them and the Norwegian Sky to sail exclusively in Hawaii. I wondered if anyone would ever do this. They said increased crew costs would be somewhat offset by lower fuel costs. I will HAVE TO sail the United States, one of the great liners ever to sail. Projected maiden voyage will be July 2004. Information came from last week's NYTimes.

Default Re: United States

I am amazed. Hard to believe the Company could pull a profit after what it will cost to re-do her.
