Cruise News Norwegian Escape Floated Out of Drydock at Meyer Werft

Norwegian Escape Floated Out of Drydock at Meyer Werft

The largest cruise ship ever built by Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Escape at 164,000 gross tons, was floated out at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany earlier this morning.

As the shipyard prepares for Norwegian Escape’s conveyance down the Elms River to the North Sea in September, the funnel was added to the ship shortly after float out. Tomorrow, Norwegian Escape’s stabilizers and thrusters will be tested.

While most of the exterior of the ship is completed, some of the interior design is still a work in progress.  Crew members are scheduled to begin moving into the ship this week preparing for the vessel’s debut in late October. The ship will sail two short cruises, a one night and a two nighter, in Europe before a 10 night transatlantic trip out of Southampton, England to Norwegian Escape’s future home in Miami, Florida.

Norwegian Escape will sail mostly seven night cruises to the Eastern Caribbean out of Miami, Florida. This first Breakaway Plus class ship will replace Norwegian Epic as the largest cruise ship in Norwegian’s fleet.
