in the Panama Canal
The Norwegian Pearl is a Jewel class cruise ship of
Norwegian Cruise Line, launched in 2006, sailing itineraries
primarily around Alaska and the Caribbean..
Norwegian Pearl is the third
of NCL's four Jewel Class ships. She was preceded by
Norwegian Jewel in 2005, and Pride of Hawaii (now Norwegian
Jade) in 2006. She was followed by Norwegian Gem in 2007.
Each ship has unique amenities, but has a similar exterior
and interior design.
Norwegian Pearl sails Caribbean cruises out of Miami, and
Alaska cruises out of Seattle depending on the time of year.
The ship has Panamax dimensions, which make it possible for
her to transit the Panama Canal while repositioning between
the two ports.
