 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

    Sorry to inform that this ship is the "summer rental” of the seas. Having been in service since the 80s, even a recent facelift from NCL could not mask the fact that the ship is in...read more
