Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any pictures of the Gem being built?

I will be on her November 2007 and can't wait. I would like to see how she is coming along;)

From the Meyer Werft shipyard

"Norwegian Gem"

Papenburg, 17 June 2006 - In the covered building dock of Meyer Werft in Papenburg, one of a total of 67 steel blocks of the new 93,500-gt cruise vessel “S.670” was put into place on the keel blocks on Saturday. Following an old shipbuilding tradition Mr. Loui Keong Hui, son of Tan Sri Lim, Chairman of Norwegian Cruise Line, laid the traditional "lucky penny", before the block was put down by the yard´s 800-ton crane. The first block weighs more than 350 tons, is 20 m long, 27 m wide and about 9 m high.

“Norwegian Gem” is the seventh ship which is built by Meyer Werft for the cruise company Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL). It is supposed to be delivered in autumn 2007. This new vessel is one of the world’s biggest panmax-cruise ship that has ever been built.

The ships length overall will be 294.13 m, the breadth is 32.2 m. The ship will be able to reach a speed of more than 25 knots. 2,384 passengers will be accommodated in 1,188 cabins and will be taken care of by a crew of over 1,000.

Like the Pearl sections are being built in many locations and will be floated in once the Pearl is complete. Attached are sections of the Pearl being floated in after the POHI exitied.

Looks like we'll be sailing together next November! I was born in the Bronx, but now live in NJ! Are you sailing with any kids?

That is too funny. I was born and grew up in NJ and now live in the Bronx. I have a 3 year old she will be 4 1/2 when we sail.

 

I tried to set up a roll call but wasn't sure how, it looks like shore guy has the answers again. :D

 

Thanks so much for the pictures. They look great.

The Meyerwerft Shipyard web cams are usually updated weekly.

 

Someone a few years ago posted all the weekly web cam photos of the Jewel.

I bet someone will also collect all the Pride of Hawaii, Pearl, and Gem's web cam photos. How about you?

 

It'll help you past the time away til your cruise.

It is interesting seeing how the ship progresses. I am not going to be on the web site constantly looking at the pictures. Just once in a while it is nice to see where they stand.
