She was the first (and only) purpose-built transatlantic ocean liner that was remodeled to be employed exclusively in luxury cruise service. Her hull form, bow design, and accommodation layout had been designed specifically for the rigors of crossing the North Atlantic, year-round. In her remodeling for cruise service, she was given a more generous accommodation, as well as larger and more numerous public spaces for the cruise-type recreations. Mechanically, the four screw propulsion plant was reduced to two screws.

  • Importing garbage for energy is good business for Sweden

    Everyone produces waste, and the Swedes are no different. It’s what they do with it that is unusual. Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. But even with this amount of domestic waste, the country’s 32 waste-to energy (WTE) incineration plants can handle even more. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries.

The SS Norway was registered in Oslo, given the call sign LITA (literally meaning "small"), and was re-christened on 14 April 1980. She was the first (and only) purpose-built transatlantic ocean liner that was remodeled to be employed exclusively in luxury cruise service. Her hull form, bow design, and accommodation layout had been designed specifically for the rigors of crossing the North Atlantic, year-round. In her remodeling for cruise service, she was given a more generous accommodation, as well as larger and more numerous public spaces for the cruise-type recreations. Mechanically, the four screw propulsion plant was reduced to two screws. And in a bid for economy, she was given a complete set of bow/stern thrusters to give her the flexibility she needed to bring her into harbour; and, to dock, without resort to the expensive pilot and tug (boat) operations that were standard procedure in the heyday of the trans-Atlantic express liners. When her re-fit was completed; and on her maiden call to Oslo, Senior Steward Wesley Samuels of Jamaica, in the presence of King Olav V, hoisted the United Nations flag as a sign of the ship's international crew. As cruise competition attempted to take some of the Norway's brisk business, the Norway herself was upgraded several times in order to maintain her position as the "grande dame" of the Caribbean. In September and October 1990, there was the addition of two decks atop her superstructure, adding 135 new suites and luxury cabins. While many ship aficionados believe the new decks spoiled her original clean, classic lines, the new private veranda cabins on the added decks were instrumental in keeping the Norway financially afloat during the later years of her operation, as these became a common feature throughout the cruise industry. She received additional refits in 1993 and 1996 in order to comply with the new SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) regulations. Competition eventually overtook the Norway, and she even started taking a back seat to other ships in NCL's lineup itself. No longer the "Ship amongst Ships", her owners severely cut back on her maintenance and upkeep. She experienced several mechanical breakdowns, fires, incidents of illegal waste dumping, and safety violations for which she was detained at port pending repairs. Despite the cutbacks, the ship remained extremely popular among cruise enthusiasts, some of whom questioned the owner's actions in light of the continuing successful operation of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2, which had become a well-maintained rival operating 5-star luxury cruises still for Cunard. In spite of this, the cutbacks continued and problems mounted even as the ship continued to sail with full occupancy. A turbo-charger fire erupted on the Norway as she entered Barcelona in 1999, which pulled her out of service for three weeks. During one of the following cruises to Norway she broke down in Bergen with leaks to one of the propeller seals delaying sailing until repaired. Slated for retirement, the Norway sailed out of Manhattan's west side piers for the last time on 9 September 2001, on yet another transatlantic crossing to Greenock, Scotland, and then on to her home port of Le Havre, France. Her passengers would learn of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington two days later, while in mid-ocean. However, as the cruise industry reeled from the aftermath of the terrorist attacks, her owners decided to place her back into service - operating bargain-basement cruises from Miami, after a brief cosmetic refit that failed to address her mounting mechanical and infrastructure problems. On 25 May 2003, after docking in Miami at 5:00 a.m., the Norway was seriously damaged by a boiler explosion at 6:37 a.m. that killed eight crew members, and injured seventeen, as superheated steam flooded the boiler room, and blasted into crew quarters above through ruptured decking. None of the passengers were injured. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that "the probable cause of the boiler rupture on the Norway was the deficient boiler operation, maintenance, and inspection practices". On 27 June 2003, NCL/Star decided to relocate the Norway, and she departed Miami under tow, although at first NCL/Star refused to announce her destination. However, she headed towards Europe and eventually arrived in Bremerhaven on 23 September 2003. NCL announced that constructing a new boiler was not possible; boiler parts, however, were available to repair her. In Bremerhaven she was used as accommodation for NCL crew training to take their places on board the line's new Pride of America.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Half of the schools and homes in Norway’s capital, Oslo, are heated by burning garbage to generate electricity. It’s eco-friendly, and Oslo predicts they’ll be able to cut their city’s carbon dioxide emissions in half within 20 years. Norwegians are so efficient with their waste they have to import trash from other countries. Norway has imported trash from England, Ireland, Sweden, and they’d like to delve into the American trash market. 2. In the latest Prosperity Index, a report published by the Legatum Institute every year, Norway was officially named as the world’s most prosperous country, which takes into account factors such as the economy, personal freedom and education. Norway topped the charts through its population’s immense Social Capital, which includes strong familial bonds, charitable intent and high levels of trust between the people and their government. 3. The above mentioned happiness may be partly due to their flourishing democracy, and a relationship between the government and its people which is based on trust. This is exemplified in the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, a huge savings portfolio built with profits from the oil industry, which is growing every year to support future generations for when the oil reserves run out. Norway has saved almost a trillion dollars from the sale of oil. 4. Norway allows any student from anywhere in the world to study at their universities for free. This allowance has no limits, either: undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D.s included. 5. Norway gets more of its electricity from hydro-power than any other country in the world. There are 937 hydropower stations that provide 98% of the nation's power. 6. Longyearbyen in Norway has the strange privilege of being both the brightest and darkest place on the planet. As the world’s northernmost settlement, Lonyearbyen is located inside the Arctic Circle, and as a result it enjoys the unusual blessing of polar night, which means that it’s dark there for about 110 days non-stop each year. For Lonbyearbyen this means that from October 27 through to February 14, it’s effectively night time. Conversely, from April 19 through to August 23, there’s 95 days of midnight sun to look forward to. That’s right, the sun never sets. 7. It is illegal to spay or neuter your dog–except under circumstances concerning health, quality of life or utility. The Norwegian Animal Welfare Act indicates that surgical procedures are not to be used to adapt animals to the needs of humans, unless absolutely necessary.
