Help identifying an NCL ship

In January of 1983 my wife and I took an NCL Mexican cruise (Cancun, Cozumel, ????). Neither of us can remember which ship it was. Does anyone know what it might have been?

hi hoosier and Welcome to Cruising Talk

NCL ship Norway was in service back then. Could this have been the one?

If not, I know other members here are more buffs in the history of ships and will have other suggestions when they see your post. :)

The Wikipedia link does help.

After looking at that I'm about 60% sure that it was the MS Skyward.

I'm trying to gather enough information to get NCL to give me Latitudes credit for that old cruise. Their online system will not go back that far, but I've been told that if I contact a person with the date and name of the ship they might.

Photos for you of the ms Skyward when with NCL.

She is now named ' Leisure World ' and sails on casino cruises out of Singapore.

From the latest photo of her it can be seen that her stern areas have been built up.

I've now done enough research to be 90% certain that it was the MS Skyward. The piece that put it over the top was this excerpt from an old Cruise Travel (Cruise Travel - Google Books).

Thanks to all for the clues. Now comes the real hard part -- convincing NCL to trust me about a cruise 27 years ago.

Hi

Hope you get NCL to accept that you did the cruise 27 years ago.

I doubt if the present companies records go back that far as the company would have been Norwegian owned then !

Came across a 1983 cruise travel when looking but missed the 1982 one. Quite interesting reads :)

It was the Skyward and I got credit for the cruise because I had a picture that was taken on the ship that I copied and sent them. Hope they gave you credit!
