 Norwegian Crown

Norwegian Crown has been retired and is no longer in service

The Norwegian Crown was formerly the Crown Odyssey operated by NCL's sister company, Orient Lines. She was originally launched in 1988 for Royal Cruise Line, this handsome vessel was taken over by Norwegian Cruise Line in 1996. After four years under the NCL flag, she was transferred to sister company Orient Lines in 2000. Constructed as a long-distance cruiser, she is an ideal ship for that company. In 2003, she was transferred back to NCL as the Norwegian Crown

    This was the worst trip, i have ever been on. I know that NCL could not control the weather, but the food was terrible, the waitstaff rude, and they charged $5.00 for a bottle of water. more

  • Isabel 57 12 Miami to Valparaiso

    I must say that I was quite apprehensive about the cruise as there seems so little information about this ship and this itinerary. Also the ship is older (1988) and smaller (34,000 tons) more

    After much concern about the Crown, rest assured this is a wonderful, clean, comfortable, roomy ship that does very well in Bermuda. This is mostly a mature, relaxed crowd. The days at more

  • Daniella 20 4 Bermuda

    First off, if you are prone to sea sickness do not take this cruise. It is a small ship ( 1,000 person capacity) and if the seas are bumpy at all you will feel it. I was queasy the more

    This was my first cruise ever...and it was fabulous! On the ship, food is the main attraction. You can eat at the superb Seven Seas restaurant, exotic Chopsticks, Italian-style Pasta Cafe, more
