    S|S Norway :: little Norway I :: little Norway II ::

    Probably among the few things still around for us to enjoy, of the grand old Lady: her tenders, in service at NCL Private Island Great Stirrup Cay.

    Found some images on flickr.com (more than just these samples):

    Little Norway I & II

    Are they still called "Little Norway" I & II? Or have they been renamed ?

    Happy to see these have survived, but seems so out-of-place without the Norway in the background somewhere...

      I think only one of them is in operation, the other one being used as spare parts.

      This is however not confirmed, we have long been hoping that some NCL guests would find us and supply us with new images / confirmations.

      So long, we have not been able to pull in new cruise passengers here as members.

          WOW! looks like a great face lift. The neighbour island - RCCL's Little Stirrup Cay have been developed for many years now, and had already a great infrastructure when I visited (with a kayak!) back in 2001.

          I think this will be a gread advantage for NCL, and it's about time, to be honest

            In the article, it's kind of strange seeing the little Norway on the beach...

            Thinking about the fact that both tenders actually survived their mother ship...

            But a renovation of GSC, seems about time... and the plans look great.

              Little Norway I & II

              I just returned from a short cruise on the Norwegian Sky...

              I am happy to report that BOTH Little Norway's still in operation at Great Stirrup Cay.

              As we anchored, and I opened my curtain and stepped on my balcony with my son, I couldn't help but get emotional when I saw both tenders aproaching the Norwegian Sky... I sailed the Norway many times as a teenager.

              Also, Great Stirrup Cay has 100s of the Norway's deck chairs in an area off to the side of the island, all lined up, but sadly not in use, except by those that want a lot of shade.

              Pictures are about to follow as soon as they are uploaded...

              Actually, here they are...










              Note that Little Norway I has a white hull, while Little Norway II has a blue hull... Also note the old NCL Logo still painted on them...








              Deck Chairs from the Norway; confirmed by the Asst Hotel Director and many crew members...

              Note that all these photos were taken with my new iPhone 4... not too bad, huh?

                Thank you so much for these memories. I can't count how many times I've been driving those babies up and down on that beach

                  Beautiful photos, not bad for an IPhone and you got great views. Say, did you see the DISCOVERY SUN in Freeport on your trip? Did you get photos of her? She's one of my favorites.

                  Past Cruises on her: August 22, 1992. June 4, 1994, April 7, 2002.
                  Nearly had our fourth cruise, it was set for November 7, 2003...
                  the boiler room disaster of May 4, 2003 took her out of service.
                  We ended up on the NORWEGIAN WIND, not the same as the SS NORWAY

                    Me too.... I loved seeing those images of the tenders again... I've spent hours upon hours driving them, even years upon years....

                    These images brings back very fond memories..

                          I loved riding in those tenders and when the forward walkway was let down...it kind of reminded me of storming a beach..only with a better cause. To get photos of the NORWAY.

                              I think I saw it in Alang, India...

                              Do we have any images of the forecastle which can confirm that..?
