NCL’s F3 Ships (image courtesy of NCL) During a scheduled press conference on Wednesday, Norwegian Cruise Line president and CEO Colin Veitch teased the media with tidbits of information regarding its two 150,000-ton F3 newbuilds.

At a cost of 1.2 billion dollars a piece, each vessel will carry 4,200 passenger berths, representing the largest ships in NCL’s fleet. The vessels design will have “more refinement” of the company’s successful Freestyle Cruising components, including the exclusive Courtyard Villas, a concept that will be expanded, Veitch said. However, Veitch said that’s all that will be familiar to guests. “The ships will have no main dining room, no theater, no Lido Café and be without a traditional cruise ship cabin,’ he added.

Both F3 ships are currently being build by Aker Yards in St. Nazaire, France and will be delivered in March and October 2010. Veitch said the F3 will add a total of 8,400 lower berths that Veitch said was comparible to delivering four Pride of Americas in six months. “The next two years we’re getting ready for this,” he said.
