The Announcement You Knew Would Come - NCL Orders Two Vessels from Meyer Werft

By Norwegian Cruise Lines' own admission today, it was a poorly-kept secret, but they have ordered two new ships from Meyer Werft. As far back as June, Meyer's CEO Bernard Meyer was seen with NCL CEO Kevin Sheehan aboard Norwegian Epic during its introduction, and even before that there was talk in the industry of NCL shopping yards for a rumored order.

So today, NCL made it official that they have sealed the deal with Meyer for two ships of a new class, slightly smaller than Norwegian Epic, for delivery in April 2013 and the spring of 2014.
