I sailed the Wind back in 1988, from New York to Bermuda, when it was still the unstretched Windward. The dining rooms were very innovative back then!

You're correct, the Wind will be renamed the Superstar Aquarius in April 2007.

Here's the NCL news link on the Wind and Crown departures:
http://www.ncl.com/news/pr/pr052506.htm
Excerpts:
Star Cruises, has agreed to sell Norwegian Crown to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Pte. Ltd., Singapore effective August 2006. Star Cruises will concurrently charter the vessel back from Fred. Olsen and NCL will continue her announced deployment through to November 2007. Norwegian Crown is presently owned by Star Cruises along with four other mid-sized vessels also operated by NCL and Orient Lines. These vessels are on inter-company charter between Star and NCL.

NCL announced that Norwegian Wind will be transferred in late April 2007 to Star Cruises to become SuperStar Aquarius, based in Hong Kong.

Therefore, in 2007 the NCL fleet will lose two older ships around the time it gains two newer ships. The fleet size hasn't increased much in numbers over recent years. The Spirit arrived soon after losing the Norway. The Sea departed about the same time the Jewel arrived. The Wind will depart soon after the Pearl arrives. The Crown will depart about the same time the Gem arrives.
NCL's expansion has been with the NCLA fleet additions. There were no fleet subtractions when the Pride of America and Pride of Hawaii arrived. While the Spirit arrived as a result of the Norwegian Sky's transfer to becoming the Pride of Aloha, the Pride of Aloha is still in the fleet. It was the Norway that left the fleet a year earlier.

The Dream and Majesty are scheduled to depart the NCL fleet by the end of 2010. Exactly when isn't known yet. There are rumours that the Majesty is to be sold soon to Louis Cruise Lines, which sails mostly around Greece.

But I've haven't read any official news about it yet.
