Norwegian Cruise Line takes delivery of Norwegian Encore

Norwegian Encore has officially been handed over to its owner Norwegian Cruise Line. Encore is the fourth – and final – Breakaway Plus-class cruise ship.

Norwegian Cruise Line has officialy taken ownership of Norwegian Encore. Shipbuilder MEYER WERFT handed over the 169,245 GRT cruise ship to the cruise line during a ceremony in Bremerhaven, Germany.

“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 CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Our dedication to creating next-level offerings on board, will allow us to continue to deliver meaningful experiences for our guests, when Norwegian Encore arrives home to Miami.”

Norwegian Encore offers ultra-modern gastronomy and many exciting attractions. These include the largest race track – nearly 1,150 feet, ten exhilarating turns and four points that extend up to 13 feet over the side of the ship, and an aqua park with two waterslides extending down several decks and double ocean loops protruding beyond the side of the ship.

Entertainment highlights include “Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical,” an interactive cocktails and theater show, “The Cavern Club”, which transports audiences back to the legendary Liverpool club with live musical performances from a Beatles cover band and the musical “Kinky Boots”, a story about an unlikely partnership between a fabulous entertainer and factory owner. Kinky Boots features original songs by Cyndi Lauper and inspires audiences to feel free to be who they want to be.

Norwegian Encore will be leaving Bremerhaven for Southampton, where the ship will be presented to the public for the first time. The ship will be christened on 21 November 2019 in Miami by Kelly Clarkson.
