Norwegian Cruise Line has received the delivery of its latest cruise ship Norwegian Encore in Bremerhaven, Germany.

Part of the line’s Breakaway Plus class of vessels, Encore is 1,100ft-long and weighs 170,000 gross tonnes. It has the capacity to accommodate approximately 4,000 passengers.

The ship offers a race track, laser tag arena with augmented reality and theatre experiences in the Galaxy Pavilion.

Passengers can also visit an Italian restaurant Onda by Scarpetta and watch a number of musicals on board, including the Kinky Boots, The Choir of Man, Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical and also the Beatles cover band The Cavern Club.

Norwegian Cruise Line CEO and president Andy Stuart said: “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.”

Meyer Werft MD Tim Meyer said: “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.”

The new vessel’s first preview cruise will begin from Germany on 31 October. The ship will arrive at Southampton, England, on 2 November. On the same day, Norwegian Encore will start a voyage to the US and arrive at New York on 10 November. The christening ceremony will take place on 21 November.

In September, Norwegian Cruise Line announced a ban on single-use plastic bottles across its fleet of cruise ships, starting from 1 January 2020.
