At an official ceremony at the Port of Miami, Melania Trump christened NCL's Norwegian Jewel. The newest vessel in NCL's Freestyle Cruising fleet, Norwegian Jewel boasts a luxurious suite complex plus 10 distinct restaurants, 13 bars and lounges, three swimming pools and a state-of-the-art spa. The evening ceremony included presentations by Star Cruises Chairman Tan Sri KT Lim, President and CEO of NCL Corporation Colin Veitch and the ship's Godmother Melania Trump. Additionally, NCL's talented cast of singers and dancers performed various vignettes to celebrate Norwegian Jewel's diverse ports of call in the Caribbean, Europe, the Mediterranean, Egypt and Greek Isles. The vessel also features the most versatile, family-friendly accommodations afloat as well as an array of amenities including 10 restaurants, three swimming pools, a contemporary spa and more. Additionally, Norwegian Jewel features a new concept for NCL - a "Bar Central" - featuring a martini bar, a champagne and wine bar, and a beer and whisky pub all connected but with three distinct personalities, plus 10 other bars and lounges for passengers to enjoy. Norwegian Jewel will sail Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries out of Miami through April 2006.
