Norwegian Cruise Line has taken delivery of its newest ship, the 17th on its fleet, Norwegian Encore in Bremerhaven, Germany.

This milestone starts a nearly month-long tour with preview events scheduled in Europe, New York and Miami, including the ship’s naming ceremony on 21 November 2019. In attendance were Norwegian Cruise Line and Meyer Werft executives.

“A feat that was made possible through a special collaboration”

“Today we celebrate the delivery of our 17th ship and the close of our history-making Breakaway Plus class – a feat that was made possible through a special collaboration with our partners at Meyer Werft,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.

“Our dedication to creating next-level offerings onboard will allow us to continue to deliver meaningful experiences for our guests when Norwegian Encore arrives home to Miami.”

On 2 November 2019, Norwegian Encore will commence her transatlantic voyage to the US, arriving in New York on 10 November with a two-day preview scheduled from 11-13 November. She will then voyage to Miami for a series of events, concluding with the christening ceremony and celebration on 21 November, which includes a live performance by Norwegian Encore’s godmother and Grammy Award-winning singer and television host Kelly Clarkson.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership”

“We’re happy to deliver another world-class ship to Norwegian Cruise Line,” said Tim Meyer, managing director of Meyer Werft. “We are extremely proud of our partnership of over 16 years and honoured to have been part of Norwegian Cruise Line’s most successful class of ships. We are confident that Norwegian Encore will continue the company’s legacy of exceeding the expectations of its guests.”
