Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest ship, Norwegian Encore, has emerged for the first time from the Meyer Werft shipbuilding dock in Papenburg, Germany, completing a major construction milestone.
The float-out took place in the early morning hours of August 17, 2019.
The newbuild will remain in the shipyard port for the final phase of construction, before its conveyance up the Ems River and towards the North Sea at the end of September.
At nearly 1,100 feet long, with a gross tonnage of almost 170,000 and a passenger capacity of 3,998, the ship will be delivered to the cruise line on October 30, 2019.
Norwegian Encore will be christened in Miami on November 21, 2019, and will commence voyages to the Caribbean on November 24, 2019.
