 German shipbuilder Meyer Werft hosted on Wednesday a steel cutting ceremony at its Papenburg yard for Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship named Norwegian Encore.

“Norwegian Encore will be the ultimate Breakaway Plus Class vessel and we are thrilled to celebrate the start of construction for this incredible new ship,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer for Norwegian Cruise Line.

“Over 50 years ago the Norwegian brand began creating unforgettable vacation moments with the first inter-island cruise in the Caribbean from Miami. We continue building on our legacy of innovation with this brand-new state-of-the-art vessel perfect for exploring the natural beauty of some of the most remarkable islands in the world.”

At approximately 167,800 gross tons and accommodating 4,000 guests, the ship will sail the Caribbean from Miami seasonally beginning in the fall of 2019.

 “We are excited to start production for Norwegian Encore and to create another floating destination for Norwegian Cruise Line,” Stephan Schmees, Executive Board Member Project Management Ships, Meyer Werft, said.

Once delivered on October 31, 2019, Norwegian Encore will become the seventeenth ship in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet and the line’s fourth and final ship in the Breakaway Plus Class.
