Various Ships<br>Futuristic trio

Product Description
Norwegian Caribbean Lines: While they look a little odd today, when NCL introduced the first of their small cruise ships in the late 1960s they must have seemed as new as a shiny penny.
 
Each had a glass headdress with a spiny mast poking out on top. Dual slanting funnels looked like turkey wings while an assortment of raked angles on the superstructures provided lots of visual interest. Off-center gold star-bursts painted on their flanks were straight from the Vegas strip. The STARWARD, SKYWARD, and SOUTHWARD were great money makers for NCL, so much so that the company had the confidence to buy the ginormous FRANCE and created the modern cruise era with the NORWAY.
 
This 32 page full color brochure from 1976 promotes the STARWARD, SKYWARD, and SOUTHWARD's Caribbean cruises out of Miami, in this case from California with a flight via the now defunct National Airlines. Along with destination info, rates, and itineraries, there are many photos of the ships and their interiors. The back cover is a great photo showing the fleet sailing side-by-side. But the best part are the deck plans with each ship getting their own two-page color set.
 
These ships were gradual improvements on each other and it is interesting to note the progression. The final of the trio, SOUTHWARD, was built with a twin to be named SEAWARD. But due to high costs NCL dropped the project and the ship was launched as P&O's SPIRIT OF LONDON. All these ships are still sailing today although for different masters. But their distinctive looks still stand out on the high seas.
