Norwegian Cruise Line has reached an agreement with Meyer Werft GmbH of Germany to build two new Breakaway Plus-class cruise ships for delivery in the second quarter 2018, and the fourth quarter 2019.
Each ship will be 164,600 gross tonnes and include 4,200 passenger berths.
“Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway have proven themselves as industry game-changers and are extremely popular with our guests,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s President and CEO.
“It was only natural that we build on their success with this new ship order that further solidifies our long-term growth strategy.”
The contract price for both ships is approximately USD 2.17bn.
The company has export credit financing in place for each ship, arranged and underwritten by KfW IPEX-Bank GmbH of Germany.
