NCL cuts back on plans for F3-class ships

Norwegian Cruise Line has decided to build just one F3-class ship rather than the two originally planned.

Shipbuilder STX Europe is building the ship at its French shipyard and it is due for delivery in May 2010. The planned second vessel, which was in the preparatory stages, will not be built.

The F3 will be the cruiseline’s largest ship, at 150,000 tons with 4,200 passenger berths.

NCL president Kevin Sheehan said: “With this agreement, we can all focus on completing the new vessel successfully. We, along with our subcontractors, will now make the necessary adjustments to our plans for this project.”
