Miami-based cruise ship company Norwegian Cruise Line revealed plans to send its next new vessel, named Norwegian Bliss, on Alaska cruises starting from June 2018.

The company said that Norwegian Bliss will cruise to America’s Last Frontier from Seattle and will be the first Norwegian Cruise Line ship to make its debut in the Emerald City.

“Norwegian was the first cruise line to begin cruising to Alaska from Seattle in 2000 and it’s only fitting that we bring our newest ship, Norwegian Bliss, directly to this incredible location,” said Andy Stuart, President and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line.

The third ship in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class, the 167,800 gross ton Norwegian Bliss can accommodate 4,000 guests. To be constructed at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, the ship is scheduled for delivery in Spring 2018.

After a transatlantic cruise and a Panama Canal transit through the new locks, it will sail north along the West Coast, reaching Seattle for the start of the summer cruising season.

Norwegian Bliss will sail weekly seven-day Alaska cruises each Saturday from Pier 66 in Seattle, featuring calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia, along with scenic glacier cruising.
