Norwegian Encore Squeezes through the Ems

Norwegian Encore

Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, has completed another major construction milestone when it departed the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, and sailed down the Ems River towards the North Sea.

On September 30, 2019, the 169,300 GT Norwegian Encore, the fourth ship in the company’s Breakaway Plus class, began its conveyance to Eemshaven, Netherlands.

Featuring a length of 333.46 meters and a width of 41.4 meters, the ship has a passenger capacity of 3,998.

Following the completion of technical and nautical sea trials in the North Sea, the newbuild is scheduled to be delivered to the cruise line in Bremerhaven on October 30, 2019.

It will be christened in Miami on November 21, 2019, and will commence seven-day voyages to the Caribbean three days later.

As informed, Norwegian Encore will be the first ship in Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet to be plastic bottle free when it debuts. By January 1, 2020, Norwegian Cruise Line plans to eliminate plastic bottles across its entire fleet comprising 16 ships.
