Norwegian Majesty to Join Louis Fleet In December

In December the Norwegian Majesty will be transferred to Louis Cruise Lines (LCL). Louis Cruise Lines completed the deal to buy the 731cabin Norwegian Majesty from Star Cruises last year, at a price of $162 Million dollars. This transacation makies Louis the fifth biggest cruise company in the world.

LCL has leased the Norwegian Majesty back to Star Cruises until December 2009. The newly purchased ship is a replacement for the lower-capacity Princesa Marissa and Serenade that the company sold for scrap in early 2008.
The 41,000-ton Norwegian Majesty was built in Finland in 1992 and underwent a major refurbishment in 1999 at a cost of $53 Million dollars. She can accommodate 1,937 passengers in 731 cabins and suites, 481 of which have outside views.
The ship has nine decks, five restaurants, six elevators, three pools, a spa, Fitness, health and beauty center, multiple show lounges, casino, bars and other public rooms.
No details have been released about the deployment plans for the ship, but once she joins the Louis fleet, she is expected to operate in the Med.
