Norwegian Cruise Line IPO

In a long expected move, Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line Tuesday announced plans to take the company public.

The company has registered an initial public offering of 23,529,412 ordinary shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The shares will be traded on the NASDAQ; no price has set been set.

There may be other perks associated with owning some of Norwegian. For example Carnival Cruise Lines rewards shareholders holding more than a 100 shares with an onboard ship credit. This credit amounts varies but it’s a nice perk & chunk of cash!
