Norwegian Sky

Norwegian Sky

Built in Germany, the Norwegian Sky is the first ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s Sun Class. The ship was completed using a hull previously built for Costa Crociere.

The Italian cruise line planned to use it on a sister ship to its Costa Victoria, to be named Costa Olympia. However, the shipyard which was building it declared bankruptcy during the construction, and Costa declined to continue the process elsewhere.

NCL then bought the hull and finished the construction with several changes in the original project. The ship entered service in 1999, before a naming ceremony with the ship's crew acting as her godparents. Between 2004 and 2008, Norwegian Sky sailed in Hawaii as Pride of Aloha.
