NCL Unveils New Suites and Villas Interactive Online Resource

Consumers and travel partners can now get a closer look at NCL's most upscale accommodations

Miami   -    May 15, 2007   ---   

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has launched a new Suites and Villas online resource for consumers and travel partners. From Garden and Courtyard Villas to Owner's Suites, Penthouses and Suites, the site features an in-depth look at NCL's high-end accommodations, which include the biggest, most luxurious, innovative suite complexes at sea.

On NCL's Jewel-class ships- Norwegian Jewel, Pride of Hawai`i/Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Pearl, and soon Norwegian Gem - the Courtyard Villas, Garden Villas, Owner's and Deluxe Owner's Suites located on the top two private decks comprise NCL's exclusive "ship within a ship" complex. Here, guests can enjoy an exclusive private haven while still experiencing all the amenities, and Freestyle flexibility, of a big ship, including the opportunity to duck in and out of a Broadway show, bowl a few games or have dinner in one of 10 restaurants, among many other things.

The Suites and Villas online resource offers vibrant and colorful visuals, 360-degree tours of a sampling of the villas and suites, details on specific room features and VIP amenities, floor plans and more. The travel partners' section also provides helpful sales tips and showcases a wealth of additional sales information- all in one convenient place.

"It's important that consumers and travel partners alike understand the extensive and lavish array of suites and villas we offer on our fleet of innovative new ships," said Andy Stuart, NCL's executive vice president of sales, marketing and passenger services. "With this online showcase, we can do that in a visually appealing and information-packed way that gives a comprehensive picture of our suites and villas, making it easier for consumers to decide on their desired accommodations while allowing travel partners to determine the best fit for their clients' needs."
