S/S Norway Fast Facts:

Born into the era of grand ocean liners, the legendary S/S Norway is a very distinctive cruise ship. Originally launched as the S/S France, the Norway displays plush splendor and architectural marvels. After the finishing touches of a three-year refurbishment, the Norway is again young, with hand-laid tile mosaics, painted murals, marble statuary, teak rails, a two-story Broadway theatre, and three clubs, including the magnificent Club Internationale. There is a world-class Roman Spa, a Monte Carlo casino, and a fully-equipped Fitness Center with incredible views. The Norway sails week-long Caribbean theme cruises, and a vaviety of standard cruises with differing itineraries.
