Norwegian Sky
This page shows postcards and photographs of the NCL cruise ship Norwegian Sky delivered in June 1999. She was intended to become the sister to the Costa Victoria, but was not completed due to the bankruptcy of the builders Bremer Vulkan. The hull was sold to NCL, and completed three years after her "sister", although design changes have given the two ships very different appearances. She was designed to operate 7-day cruises in the Caribbean and Alaska. She is 78,200 gross tons, 258.67 metres long and carries 2002 passengers (2450 max). 6 MAN diesels of 68930 total bhp drive her at 23 knots.

Norwegian Sky Postcards
This postcard of Norwegian Sky was made by sticking a colour print onto an adhesive postcard back. It was produced in Germany, and I believe it was issued by the builders from a photograph taken during her sea trials.
This is the first NCL official postcard that I found of Norwegian Sky. It uses a slightly different builder's photograph to the one shown above. Thanks go to Carl Kulkielka for sending me the card from the ship.
The caption reads:- "The beautiful M/S NORWEGIAN SKY is the most unique and trendsetting cruise ship in the world. 80,000 tons - Registry - Bahamas".
In 2000, NCL issued a new series of official postcards of their fleet, including the two of Norwegian Sky shown below.
A Wil Moojen postcard (printed by BOS-RIDDERKERK) of Norwegian Sky (no serial number). The photograph, by the publisher, was taken in the Nordzeekanaal on her maiden trip, 18/08/1999.
Simplon Postcards serial number sc2155 of Norwegian Sky (issued May 2000).
The photograph, by Mike Louagie, was taken at Zeebrugge in 1999.

Norwegian Sky Photographs
The following photographs were taken at the builders, Lloyd Werft, Bremerhaven, Germany. The first shows Norwegian Sky under construction, before the bow was added. The remaining pictures show her being moved around the yard prior to delivery. Unfortunately I have mislaid the photographer's name - if these are your pictures, please let me know and I will credit them correctly. Would anyone submitting pictures ensure that their name, date and location are added to the backs.
Norwegian Sky Arriving at San Francisco
The following photographs were taken by Marvin Jensen as Norwegian Sky arrived a San Francisco on Thursday September 28th, 2000. This was her second visit to S.F., following her first Alaska season.
The following two photographs were taken by Marvin Jensen later on the same day as those above.
