After posting several questions about NCL and their financial issues, it has been understood that NCL would not be were they are without the corporation of their parent company Star Cruises. Star Cruises became a part of the NCL family in March 2000 (if I am correct). Star Cruises has put a lot of time and money into NCL into making NCL what they are today! Star Cruises, NCL's parent company is also a profitable Cruise Line.
Some of those examples are:
Implementing “Freestyle” Cruising; the first cruise line in the North American market.
Having as many as 10 restaurants per ship.
Taking NCL and “Freestyle” cruising to Hawaii with Hawaii’s first purpose-built ship ever; Norwegian Star.
New NCL logo
Deploying its feet to Europe, New Zealand, Asia, etc.
NCL Special features
Pre & Post Packages
Honeymoon at Sea
Fanning Island, just off the islands of Hawaii, home to approximately 1,304 people declare a holiday when one of NCL’s ship arrive at Fanning Island. NCL delvers medical care, food, staples, school supplies, and more. NCL even supplies sporting goods for the island’s basketball and soccer teams. Next, December the Norwegian Star will begin bringing weekly mail to the island. The first time ever. NCL was even privileged to have Fanning Island’s primary school named after them; NCL Primary School.
In my opinion, Star Cruises, NCL, and Orient Lines are truly working together to bring the best of the Cruise Industry to YOU. New ships, new destinations, and indeed a new look.
I’m sure NCL will continue to be a leader in the cruise ship industry, since they pioneered the first Caribbean cruise! So from the feedback I have received about NCL; they have come this far and I hope they will not give up now!
Keep up the GOOD work NCL!
Love to hear from you/what do you think....
