SS Norway Documentary Trailer

(More info at www.ssnorwayoceanliner.com/doc ) This is a trailer of the documentary I am making about the last of the great 1000 foot ocean liners, The S/S Norway / S/S France. This ship has a story unlike any other. Built as a transatlantic liner and later beeing converted into a cruiseship the S/S Norway now rests on the beach in Alang, India. Here it is waiting to be dismanteled. This unique footage from onboard the ship in Alang will only be shown in this documentary. The documentary will be finished in 2008/2009.

We have life boat number nine, which has been turned into a houseboat.

I wonder what they ended up doing with the furniture and decorations? I did
see someone was selling one of the SS Norway dining room chairs on eBay for
over $4,000 a piece.

My first cruise was a Caribbean cruise on the Norway in 1982 when I was 12
years old. It was with my family, over Christmas and New Years. We were
supposed to go the year before, but when we got to Miami we found out the
cruise was canceled because of an engine room fire that cause some buckling
to one of the decks. I was devastated. We had been planning that cruise for
a year. When you're 11 years old, that is an eternity. But we went the next
year and had a great cruise. The ship was beautiful, and I've been
fascinated by cruise ships ever since. But the new behemoth floating hotels
aren't the same as those gorgeous old ocean liners, with their elegant
lines and stacks. So sad to see this beautiful old ship go to the scrap

My first cruise was on the SS NORWAY 1 year after NFL had her in service. I
always fantasized being on a transatlantic cruise. I was on a 7 day eastern
itin. I actually saw under the upper deck pool. it was prefab and dropped
into a courtyard. the 1st class dining room was where we had our midnight
buffet which was every day. the grand staircase was amazing to make and
entrance. One day at sea we saw a stage presentation of My Fair Lady. Vic
Damone was our name entertainer. we had a real bathtub in our bathroom. I
took a bath one day just to feel the rocking. The meals were great. Our
dinner companions were an older actor from NewYork. His Mother was along
from Austria and was a defendant from royalty. We dressed nicely for dinner
every day. So many memories.

I was onboard when the boiler room exploded. I was young, but I remember it
was early in the morning when my family awoke to huge bang followed by the
captain saying "get to the upper decks, this is not a drill" or something
along the lines of that. It was really dark and we finally made it up to
where our group is supposed to meet in the event of an emergency. It was so
hot though and I was really thirsty and all I could have was this gross
carbonated water. I don't remember much after that, I don't think anything
significant happened after that... it was scary though that's fore sure.

We create such magnificent things, accomplishments that we use and discard
as symbols of profit and greed, never truly valuing its historical legacy
for generations to come, never placing them in their proper historical
chronological order of our evolution!
With that said, from day one, the "SS France" had big shoes to follow,
considering her predecessor the "SS Normandy", also not only a
technological wonder of its day but "floating Art Deco Palace" lost to the
ravishes of WW2, many speculate as Nazi sabotage in NYC Harbor!
I had the privilege of sailing the SS France as a child in a crossing from
Le Havre to NYC in the 1960's, and as an adult, in the SS Norway in a
cruise out of Miami in the 1990's. By then she was no longer a
"Transatlantic" but a Norwegian Cruise Line Fun Ship, two very different
stages of her service never losing her glamour, a legend in her own right!

Aside from the irreverent tone, I am with you on the last sentence. Saving
liners, affordable housing, etc- it is like the economics never matter
until the advocates of such things have to be the one to foot the bill. At
least her demolition provided jobs and her pieces are now being recycled to
continued uses. I did get to see Norway leave port when I was a kid. I will
never forget that experience. Man she was a beauty!

Автор CaraBrimleyRules ( назад)
@edcokmful It was broken up in 2008 because it was a rusty old heap of
scrap with a blown engine & too expensive to refit to the new standards.
Besides, people expect a different package with cruises nowadays. Outside
balconies for example. Basically ships are designed to last 20-30 years and
this one was nearly 50 years old... built for crossing the Atlantic in a
different era. It's all very well people saying it could be saved but would
they pay for it and guarantee the passengers to fill it?

can anyone tell me why the fuck are they demoliting it?

I sailed on her 4 times in the 1990's - stopped cruising all together after
the explosionbecause I never wanted to go on another ship. Now seeing this
is so sad. I could just picture us on her cruises having fun in all these
(now) lonely places. Kindof creepy. I'd sure like to get that documentary -
and wish I had more souvenirs

She was one of a kind and she'll be sorely missed. So many good memories
onboard. She singlehandedly changed the cruise industry and made Norwegian
Cruise Lines into a success. Then they were bought out by the Genting
casino group and instead of preserving her like QE2, they neglected
maintenance until she LITERALLY blew up. For the 7 dead crew, and for what
they did to this ship, without which the company wouldn't even be viable, I
will NEVER sail with NCL again as long as I live.

She was a beautiful, classy lady who gave me many happy memories. I went on
a jazz cruise with my parents in 1985 and saw Mel Torme, Dizzy Gillespie
and Cab Calloway perform. It was awesome! I wish I could do it all over

Anyway, our "pot luck" roommate was a guy named Eugen Hepper. Tom and I
walked in to the room the afternoon of Day 2, and Eugen had already met
this hot chick and was banging away on the top bunk. We never saw him again
after that, so I think Eugen had a good cruise. For talent night, I put on
a bunch of pancake and did Michael Jackson, complete with a butane hose to
my wig, rigged for flaming, a la the recent Pepsi commercial. I think I won
the talent show and got a bottle of champagne.

First and last time was around 1985 for 7 days. Captain was a guy named
Haugen. Our waiter was Trevor Pink from Jamaica. Entertainment headliner
was Vic Damone. The water was too choppy to tender to the goofy private
island (Coco Cay?), but we did make it off in St. Thomas and maybe one
other port. My buddy and I from college took a "pot luck" room on the
Dolphin Deck to save money.

My husband and I were on this ship in 2001 for our first cruise. We both
fell in love with the ship, and were saddened when it was decommissioned
after the engine explosion. Watching this video first gave me the shivers
hearing Hot Hot Hot for it played as we pulled out of Miami, and then to
tears seeing the ship that was such a beauty now in shambles.

Back in 1989 and 1990 I spent two weeks as an entertainer on the Norway.
Absolutely the most beautiful ship in the world. The theater, while
originally designed for movies, was a great live performing venue.
Wonderful audiences and a memorable experience I'll always carry with me.
So sad it's now gone. Au Revoir!

Автор Joy van den Berg ( назад)
true. She's an important piece of maritime history. Just look at what
happened to the SS Rotterdam. The same could have happened to the beautiful
Norway. She should have been saved. This is just a terrible end for such a
great liner.

Автор Joy van den Berg ( назад)
I don't. They have blood on their hands. A lot of workers will die from the
asbestos that was inside the Norway. And NCL knew about that. They are
responsible for the workers deaths and also for the deaths of some of the
crew, who died because of the explosion, which was the result of bad
maintenance. And they've destroyed a beautiful historic liner. So much art
is being destroyed now, it's just so sad

new liners? what new liners? There are no new liners anymore, except for
the Queen Mary 2. And she doesn't even come close to the France/Norway when
it comes to exterior. The rest of the new passenger ships are just ugly
floating resorts. How can you say new liners are just as good as the
beautiful, classic liners. Those were real ships, the new ones look like
floating appartment blocks.

I agree. it is a horrible crime , yet we must look to the future. We have
one liner that is in need of saving and it's the SS united states docked in
philly. She has to be saved. I hope in the future one or even I will build
new and classic liners like her. Only time will tell.

Автор mechwarrior58 ( назад)
What a horrible crime to see such a beautiful ship in good condition be
destroyed like that. She could have been saved it was corporate greed and
negligence that killed her. Shame on the owners. I would have spared no
expense in saving her. I hope in the future they build a new liner just
like her.

Uh, we don't have ocean liners anymore; we have cruise ships. Ocean liners
had a distint and different body shape. Their hulls were often deep and
they weren't flat and heavy topped. It would be like comparing a new GTO to
a 68 GTO. No real comparission.

Stop getting all sentimental ships only have a lifespan of around 35 years
before all the metal begins to decay badly nothing lasts forever. The new
liners are just as good.

No it could not have been done economically and you know it. As I found out
NCL insurers would not pay for it, her run down condition that has been
documented under BOTH her owners. Very common for people like you to need
someone to blame, ssmaritime feeds that need well. A website with well
documented instances of playing fast and loose with the facts to achieve
the goal of its creator. It usually appeals to those who can't distinguish
fact from fiction..or those like you who don't want to.

answer, he'll change the subject like he always does.

Автор homeric9 ( назад)
Wow you are one paranoid guy! Nope, sorry to disappoint you and your
fantasies. But you have again proven my point for the fourth time I can
see. You would rather tow the line on this point than actually research
this with other interested maritime enthuasists. I'm suspecting you're from
the office of ssmaritime. Would stand to reason but then again you could be
a blind faith follower of ssmaritime. I mean Jim Jones had his followers
too. But come on, get serious! You sound like a child.
