Norwegian Starts Construction on Newest Ship, Norwegian Encore

Cruise News – Jan. 31, 2018

Norwegian Cruise Line has marked the start of construction for its newest ship — and the 17th ship in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. Named Norwegian Encore, the new ship will sail the Caribbean from Miami seasonally beginning fall 2019.

MEYER WERFT Managing Director Tim Meyer, Norwegian Cruise Line President and CEO Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line Ships Project Manager Throsten Kroes, MEYER WERFT Executive Board Member of Ship Projects Stephan Schmees and Executive Vice President of International Business Development Harry Sommer Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings and MEYER WERFT executives gathered at the MEYER WERFT Laser Center in Papenburg, Germany, and cut the first plate of steel, marking the ceremonial start of construction of Norwegian Encore, which is due for delivery on October 31, 2019.

“Over 50 years ago, the Norwegian brand began creating unforgettable vacation moments with the first inter-island cruise in the Caribbean from Miami,” said Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “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, Norwegian Encore will be the line’s fourth and final ship in the Breakaway-Plus class (which include sister ships Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy, and the upcoming Norwegian Bliss). Norwegian Encore will sail weekly 7-day Caribbean cruises from PortMiami. More details on the ship’s design, accommodations, dining, and onboard offerings will be shared in the coming months. The ship will be available for reservations in March 2018.
