Norwegian Cruise Line’s new cruise ship Norwegian Bliss will be launched at MeyerWerft’s covered building dock at Papenburg, Germany, on Saturday, local time.
The float-out is scheduled for 8am, but weather could cause possible delays.
After leaving the building dock, the 334-metre by 41.4-metre Norwegian Bliss will berth at the shipyard's outfitting pier to be fitted with its funnel.
The ship will then remain in the shipyard port for fitout, on-board crew training and acceptance procedures until its passage through the River Ems up to the North Sea on the second weekend in March.
The ceremony will be live-streamed via webcam at www.meyerwerft.de.
The 11,700DWT Norwegian Bliss has capacity for 3,998 passengers.
