NCL dates back to 1966 when the Oslo-based Kolsterss Rederi A/S acquired the M/S Sunward and repositioned the ship from Europe to Miami, establishing a company called Norwegian Caribbean Lines. The next three decades brought new ships, new itineraries and a new corporate name-Norwegian Cruise Line. NCL further expanded the fleet and in a move to strengthen the company’s brand identity, most of the ship names had Norwegian added to them. In 1998,NCL’s parent company, NCL Holding ASA acquired Orient Lines. In 2000, Star Cruises of Malaysia acquired the NCL Group and is now the parent company. More recently within the NCL Group, NCL America was formed, which will handle the operations for US-based vessels.

In April 2004; a new company -NCL Corp- was formed directly under Star Cruises to hold all of the North American-based activities of the group: NCL, NCL America and Orient Lines brands and operations as well as all of the new ships in those businesses and the ships under construction.
