When I graduated from HS in 1993, a friend of mine and I went on the NCL Westward to the Bahamas. Whatever happened to that ship? Did they just change the name or did they sell it? Just wondering.
She is still alive!! I grew up around ships and the ocean. I wanted to be a cruise ship captain as a child but wanted to have a family so I couldn't. Mom, when I turned 18 took me on the MS Westward for my birthday and that ship, for some reason or another, tugged my heartstrings. I fell in love with her and always wondered what became of her! Is she still alive now? I see your message was in 2004. Thanks so much!!This is the story of the MS Westward:
ROYAL VIKING STAR: Built 1972 for Royal Viking Line, Oslo, Norway, at WÃƒÂ¤rtsilÃƒÂ¤, Helsingfors, Finland. Lengthened 1981 at A. G. Weser Seebeckwerft, Bremerhaven, Germany. RVL sold 1984 to Norwegian Caribbean Lines (Klosters R/A), Olso. Continued operating independently. Reflagged in Bahamas 1988. Transferred to NCL 1991, renamed WESTWARD. Transferred to Royal Cruise Line 1994, renamed STAR ODYSSEY. Royal Cruise Line dissolved by NCL 1996. After a short period of operation under NCL brand (keeping same name), sold to Fred Olsen Cruise Line, Nassau, renamed BLACK WATCH. Presently in service.
