NCL CORP. will build two ships for its Norwegian Cruise Line brand to be ready for service in 2007, including one that will equip all outside cabins with a balcony. That ship, which will carry 2,430 passengers, will be built at Aker Finnyards (which incorporates Kvaerner Masa-Yards) for a May 2007 delivery. The other ship, with a February 2007 delivery, will be built by Meyer Werft and will be a replica of the 2,384-passenger Norwegian Jewel, which is under construction at Meyer Werft's yard in Papenburg, Germany. NCL said the orders are subject to documentation and certain conditions such as securing specified financing packages, before they become effective. The all-in cost of the two ships is about $1 billion, the company said. NCL also took an option with Aker Finnyards for a second vessel.
