NCL's Norwegian Jewel cruise ship

Norwegian Cruise Lines announced in June of 2004 the name of the newest gem in their fleet. Norwegian Jewel is expected to launch in August of 2005. The fourth ship in NCL's fleet to be purpose built for "Freestyle Cruising", Norwegian Jewel is planned for two of the industry's biggest cruise markets - the Caribbean and Alaska.

The 92,000 ton Norwegian Jewel will feature ten restaurants, two Garden Villas, and a brand new style of accommodations - the addition of ten Courtyard Villas with a private shared private courtyard and sundeck on deck 14. Both types of Villas will have use of a concierge lounge and have dedicated butlers to offer continental breakfast, daily refreshments and canape's and drinks before dinner.

Being a sister ship to the Norwegian Star and Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Jewel is the next stage in NCL's rejuvenation. Out of the eleven cruise ships the cruise line will be offering in 2005, seven will be newer ships offering about 70% of their passengers a sailing experience aboard state-of-the-art vessels.

After a series of inaugural events and a 14 night Mediterranean cruise, Norwegian Jewel will be taking a transatlantic crossing out of London. In the late summer of 2005, she will begin her Caribbean season of seven-day Eastern and Exotic Western Caribbean cruises. Then in the spring of 2006 she will begin her Alaskan cruise itineraries.
