Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan's first cruise ship of the 2006 season, the Norwegian Wind, arrived Tuesday morning. The Norwegian Wind was escorted by the US Coast Guard Cutter Naushon as a part of the Homeland Security effort.

The Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Wind was greeted by the city's fireboat Harry Newel shooting steams of water into the air. The guest capacity of the 680' Norwegian Wind is 1,748. She has a crew of 570.
