Quite surprisingly, the Norwegian Pearl is under consecutive charters for two straight months next year, starting with the subject cruise and continuing to mid-March with various other country, rock and roll, and other music and affinity cruises. This is unusual but then it makes sense since the ship can be outfitted for various music stage shows and they can just leave the hardware in place.
Some of this has to do with Norwegian buying Sixthman Productions, which is a key player in the charter cruise business.
Norwegian Pearl also has music charters at various times this year, so it seems it is the 'designated charter ship'. I wonder what the crew thinks about it?
