Newbuilds for NCL are biggest ever for Meyer

German cruise ship builder Meyer Werft has bagged an order worth €1.2 billion for two 143,500 GT newbuilds for NCL for delivery in early 2013 and 2014, writes Tom Todd.

They will be the biggest ships ever built by Meyer and bring to nine the number on order with the yard.

The yard, in Papenburg, North Germany, said each of the giant ships would carry more than 4,000 passengers. It said finance had already been secured through a German export finance credit guarantee. Kevin Sheehan, Chairman of NCL, said the ships had been ordered because of improvements in the company’s business and the popularity of its other ships.
