Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line president and chief executive officer said:

“Humpback whales are an iconic part of the Alaska landscape and one of the most compelling sights visitors can see while cruising the Last Frontier.”

“It was only fitting that an artist of Wyland’s caliber should create the artwork for our first ship designed for Alaska, which includes humpback whales and other signature marine life found in the world’s oceans. We hope that our guests are just as inspired as we are by this beautiful artwork.”

Wyland is a well-known artist has award-winning art galleries and non-profit foundation’s community service projects. His encounter with the marine world has inspired him to paint animals in life-size.
