Norwegian Jade

My former employer and my former cruiseline sent one of their ships to Trondheim for the second time this season: on July 7th, the Norwegian Jade arrived at the cruise dock in town. Thankfully, the weather was nice this day. If there was one ship I would really have liked to capture through c-gull this year, this would be the one.†

According to my resources, the "Norwegian Jade" was originally built for NCL America by Meyer Werft in Germany as the "Pride of Hawaii” and handed over in 2006. She is supposedly the second ship in the so-called “Jewel-class” (referring to the "Norwegian Jewel" - the first ship of this class). During her first two years of operation, under the name “Pride of Hawaii”, she was home-ported at Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, but back in 2008, she was transferred to Bahamian flag and renamed "Norwegian Jade".†

The “Norwegian Jade” is an impressive vessel with a total length of 294 meters, and a gross tonnage of approximately 94.000 tons. Passenger capacity sits at just above 2.400 guests, with a crew of 1.037.†
