Marking the initial construction of Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest cruise ship, executives from the cruise line met at the MEYER WERFT Laser Center recently, located in Papenburg, for a steelcutting ceremony. The event took place on January 31, 2018.
The first cut plate of steel signifies the beginning of construction for the sailing ship, Norwegian Encore. The cruise ship, which will be added to the Breakaway Plus Class of sailing vessels, will begin sailing from Miami to the Caribbean in fall 2019. The ship is due for delivery on October 31, 2019.
Norwegian Encore will be the final ship of the Breakaway Plus Class, notably the most successful class in the cruise line’s history. It is also the seventeenth ship in the Norwegian fleet of ships. According to company officials, the 167,800 gross ton ship will accommodate 4,000 passengers. Scheduled seven-day Caribbean sailings are featured from PortMiami.
Not only will guests be presented with world-class entertainment, they will also get to enjoy exciting on-board activities – experiences like no other in the world. Named “Europe’s Leading Cruise Line” for ten years straight, Norwegian Cruise Line is also introducing another new build, the Norwegian Bliss, which is slated for delivery in April 2018. The cruise line also plans delivery of four more ships in 2022.
