    Norwegian Cruise Line or NCL began in 1966 as Norwegian
Caribbean Line.  After an intial public offering in 2013, it is now owned
by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.  Norwegian currently operates
14 ships in its Norwegian Cruise Line and NCL America divisions.

Norwegian has a history of innovation.  When Norwegian converted
the ocean liner SS France into the cruise ship SS Norway, it
demonstrated the feasibility of using a large ship (at the time the
world's largest passenger ship) for cruising thus paving the way for the
giant ships of today.

It was also the first line to have full-scale production shows onboard.  

Today, Norwegian distinguishes itself from the other major lines
primarily based upon a philosophy it calls "Freestyle Cruising."  Under
Freestyle Cruising, the traditional model of life on board a cruise ship is
abandoned.  It is for the guest to decide how the cruise experience will
be structured.  Accordingly, there are no assigned dining times, no
dress code, no specified disembarkation times.  Instead, Norwegian
provides the building blocks for the passenger to use in creating his or
her own cruise experience.  Thus, there are up to 11 restaurants on the
Norwegian ships, accommodations that run the gamut from ultra luxury
to utilitarian, as well as a wide variety of facilities for activities and
entertainment.

The line has also dispersed its ships away from the traditional Florida
cruise ports and positioned them in other cities in America and Europe
so that they are closer to the passengers.

In addition, the line has launched 13 new ships since 1999.  As a result,
Norwegian has one of the youngest fleet of any of the major cruise
lines.  It is in the process of building a sister to Norwegian Escape and
has other ships on order.
