Norwegian Joy, Norwegian Cruise Line’s first custom-designed ship for the Chinese cruise market, was christened today in a ceremony held onboard the vessel in Shanghai.

“After years spent carefully designing this amazing vessel, my team and I are both proud and thrilled to finally christen the world’s first cruise ship custom-designed for the wonderful people of China,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.

Norwegian Joy’s christening marks the end of a month-long grand inaugural tour where the ship has been showcased through events at the ports of Singapore, Qingdao, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, as well as cruises from Norwegian Joy’s homeports of Shanghai and Tianjin.

At 167,725–gross-tons and accommodating 3,883 guests, Norwegian Joy was built by German Meyer Werft shipyard.

Measuring 333 metres in length and 41 metres in width, the ship is the second in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class.
