DE DA will need 74 days for towing NORWAY from Bremerhaven to Singapoore.
On June 30th they are expected in Cape Town where DE DA needs bunkering while NORWAY will stay anchored outside the harbour.

NORWAY Reaches Cape Town

June 26: SS NORWAY was observed in Cape Town today, her tug DE DA was refueling for the continuing voyage from Bremerhaven to Port Klang, Malaysia. Maritime Matters thanks Jan-Olav Storli Chief Officer Safety & SSO of CRYSTAL SYMPHONY for the update.

lwenger,

welcome to Cruise-Chat.com.

Actually there are serious doubts that the Maritime Matters item quoted by you is correct, after all. Cape Town Port Authorities expect that arrival of "De Da" (the "Norway" will remain outside the port limits with the South African salvage tug "Smit Amandla" standing by) for tomorrow night. Also, none of my contacts in South Africa have confirmed the arrival, yet.

Raoul,

I only posted the message after seeing a post on the Internet about the supposed Norway sighting in Cape Town. Hopefully, all is well. I sailed on her in October 2002 with my mother, who traveled on her as well with her parents when she was the France. I only hope she continues service somewhere - even if it's just a floating hotel.

Best regards,
Lisa

Lisa,

I do hope that she will escape the breakers, but I am still in doubt to some extent. I have sailed aboard her both in Europe and in the Caribbean, and she remains my all-time favorite ship.

Andrew,

there has been no official word yet as to the "Norway's" fate, so everything is pure speculation at this time. NCL's parent company Star Cruises' parent company, Genting International, hope to be allowed to build a casino resort / cruise terminal in Singapore, and there are indications that the "Norway" is to be part of this by serving as a static tourist attraction.

However, I guess we will have to "wait and see" what' going to happen, I'm afraid. She might also end up on an Indian beach or with a different venture.

Hallo everybody,

Ian Shiffman reports that "De Da" / "Norway" arrived in Cape Town earlier today. He will rent a helicopter tomorrow morning to take pictures of the "Norway", which he plan to publish on his web site at http://home.worldonline.co.za/~snai/indexmain.html
