Probably even later. If they say spring then it'll most likely be fall.

None of us really know: wish NCL would let us know assuming they know. Maybe things are still up in the air. I certainly hope she comes back, but my gut feeling is we may never see her in this part of the world again. So sad!!

Hope all this negitive on the Norway is wrong. I would hate to see this be the end of her. I am so very glad that I sailed this great liner in January. There is no other ship like her .

Just one question, Suzanne, where are you getting your information? I have talked to 2 NCL reps and even they do not have any answers. I happen to think you may be correct which is really sad, but right now everything is speculation. When NCL is possitive of her destiny and what they will do if she isn't going to re-enter the market I am sure we will all know.

NORWAY Silent
September 25: Since the tragic engine room explosion in Miami, SS NORWAY (ex FRANCE) remains laid up at Bremerhaven. Earlier in the month a rumor of continued use as an hotel ship was bandied about in maritime circles, but with no new news and the announcement by NCL of two new ships on order, her future appears clouded.

This is all I know. Too bad it was the best ship in the fleet. you can get the best Martime newa up date at this link. http://www.maritimematters.com/shipnews.html

Suzanne, Interesting where you info came from; there is a message on CC today from the top NCL management stating they have made no decesions about her future at this time, but are still looking at the options. As I have said, I sadly agree with the feeling she will not come back to us, but I still doubt the crew has too much more info than we have. I am just remembering my days as a manager for a major hotel resv chain and how much was really told to the agents or even us many times.

Thanks again for passing this along.

Nita

she doesnt need an engine, she needs a boiler. there are websites that show pix of her with work going on, maybe a freshening while they wait for a boiler to be built. there are very few places that this can be done these days. i dont think they would even bother maintaining her if she wasnt to re enter service. Long Live the Blue Lady!

I have not heard any order for a new boiler. I thinks this lady's day is over. With new ships coming out, this line must upgrade if its going to compete with other lines. Can you put new wine into old bottles?

We are not talking wine...but a clasic liner that quality was #1 from the day she was built. I commend NCL for keeping her going all these years. I wish I could have one more sailing aboard this true liner. This was ocean going travel at its finest. The "ride" on the waves that this lady offered will not be duplicated agian. A little bit of history bites the dust if she doesn't return. I for one ,will cherish my sailing aboard her.

It will be sad if and when the Norway becomes a total has been. As far as upgrading the ships to stay competitive, that's one of the selling features of NCL. They have a ship for everyone and everyone's taste from new and glitzy to seasoned and classic. I hope they don't go with the cookie cutter look like so many lines have.

Default Re: Re: Re: The Norway

does it make sense that ncl would invest in buying SS United States and SS Independence and returning them to service and NOT buy a boiler for an otherwise perfectly wonderful, beautiful ship, SS Norway?
oh yeah, SS means steamship, they may need a few more boilers in the future.

This old bottle has serious problems which I am sure NCL is looking at with great intrest. This ship's boiler is a victim of metal fatiuge. The other boilers are perhaps in the same state. Then there is the old wiring and plumbing. I love the old ships also but I can't see the sence of rebuilding old ships when new ships have greater longevity.

SUZANNE
If the officer said thinks then why are you posting EVERYWHERE that this as you put it

"they wont do this for this old gal.

The Norway is a great topic on a Great ship but I will be hopeful until it is official.

This was your first message on Oct 20th. It doesn't say anywhere, anything about doubt. I did have to read it a few times to understand what you meant. I for one am not saying she will return to the waters, but to make statements like SHE IS NOT COMING BACK is a bit too presumptious. There is another thread someone talked to a res agent that says indeed the boiler has been ordered. None of us know and won't until NCL makes a public announcement which hopefully will be soon.

You guys are so immature. Stop bickering like 7th graders!!! I am only 18 years old and I don't bicker like you people. I just have to say I think the S.S United States is a great investment oppertunity for NCL. The ship is large, historic and attracts more attention from the media and general public due to her past notoriety. I have studied the ship for many years and I know it will make a wonderful oceanliner. And whoever said that new ships are better due to thier longevity, I just have this to say to you. I recently traveled on the Norwegian Star. I feel it was way too large for NCL's non-english speaking crew to deal with. It is time for the older ships to be back in commission. It says alot that the S.S United States floated unattended and uncared for, for over 50 years, whats not to say she won't surpass the newer ships.


Ohh and another comment for the United States, she could also be named the U.S.S United States due to the fact that she was designed to convert from luxery liner to troop ship in under 48 hours. Let's see the Seranade of the Seas do that move. The Big U is also fire proof, could travel 38 knots in reverse and could still out manuver and out steam any modern day oceanliner.

One more thing, Don't critize old things because you might be one yourself.

This is what I think!
I don't owe this company & if I did I would not
Put that ship back on the water, she to old
& need to much work, Im sailed her twice She needed work when I was on her.

This is what I think & likwise what that officer I spoke to also thinks!
she wont be back, to much money needed to get her up & running
when a ship is tis old she usally sold !
to some foreign port japen etc
Im sailed NCL for over 20 years they will retired her, as will they soon retired a few other ships!

unless they get good insurance money back to get her up & running, but even then there the cost of a better engine so she can more a little faster, to keep up with the younger newer ships!
I don.t understand why a few are upset .
Im sorry I voiced what I heard.
Are some of you booked on her
last word im saying on this subject

Im sorry if my plan speaking upset anyone it was not my idea at all

I wish I never reported what he told me

Once again, don't dump on things cause they are old. If you treat all old things this way then maybe some of you should give up on yourselves.

I was lucky enough to have sailed on the Blue Lady in January 2003. I hope that she makes it back next year, or anytime for that matter. For anyone who is interested in the heritage of the SS Norway, including updates on her status, here's a link to the website of the S/S Norway Preservation Foundation:
